Is the B screw adjusted correctly? If the top of the cage is fouling give it a couple of turns in? Issues like this are normally more B screw related than chain length.
Brought a Sunrace ‘goat’ hanger extension and now I have All The Gears hurrah
Also helped to swap the back plate of the mech cage around to be facing the right way doh
Shakedown ride, few loose bolts but all good
Super slow comfy touring
Next trip is a few months through Africa??
Few days in Wiltshire more like
Looks proper! Love it!
Thank you Thorn, what a reward
And thank you fam,for organising an amazing two days out
Hi there, just to say I think you did a fantastic job! Well done.
On a side note, though I don't own a Thorn, I've always preferred the MK 1 versions to Thorn's later models - disc or no disk. The lovely fork here on your Nomad, the horizontal TT. It's just very classic and elegant. I think you got just the right model! Not to mention generous tyre widths.
Thanks both, itching to get out on it again, is just such a great thing
