• Hey all,

    I’m building up a dad bike/commuter from a surly straggler frame, after my alfine 8 day one got stolen a few weeks ago.. already have an alfine 8 and dynamo wheelset so need the following bits to make it rideable.
    Would like to do this as cheaply as possible, but if you’ve got nice bits that fit the bill I’ll consider it.

    Things I need:
    Cranks (I have some sugino 75’s that I could reuse, but if anyone’s got anything more modern I’m interested)
    Chain ring (3/32 -bcd obviously depends on cranks)
    Bottom bracket 68mm english (depends on the crank)
    Stem (90-100mm, 31.8mm clamp)
    Alfine 8 Shifter (jtek, thumb or bar end)
    Front rack (gamorah minoura? Velo orange porteur?)
    Front dynamo light (iq-xs or similar)

  • I have one of these racks, that attach to the headtube in good condition with all the fittings.
    £20 collected in Peckham SE, can deliver within reason as well

  • I've got a IQ-Cyo Premium T dynamo light going. £20 posted?

  • Could take you up on this. My dynamo hub is the 1.5w variety, so just doing some digging to see if it’ll power your light..

  • Got a nexus 8 shifter, the trigger one with the built in dial and brake lever.

    Not sure if it's compatible or of interest. Pretty sure it's new (I bought it off ebay and have never used it)

  • thanks, for the offer, but I'm not a fan of the shimano shifters, looking for something with no dial.

  • Nw.

    Build sounds fun!

    I really like my internal hub bike. Perfect for practical pootling

  • Still looking for these remaining bits, so I can get this dad bike/commuter built..

  • I have a pair of Lumotec IQ AVY N plus front with Secula LineTec Rear if you are interested

  • I think I’ll pass, have my heart set on an iq-xs as i know it’ll work with me 1.5w dynamo.
