Dad, husband cyclist, wheel builder and bike shop owner/importer.
the bike has 5 speed though which is probably lowish end.
1980 is likley to 120mm spacingi have a 1980 carlton that 120mm spaced.
Erm the XR300 may not be listed online but dont confuse that with it not being available. I dont buy them but can have them quickly. Why not try calling or email a shop.
Dont have any bull horns except shop stock. Spent all the pennies on the disc wheel. Also with drops I go a bit lower which is good and bad at the same time.
I also dont like the look of brake levers on bull horns. To qualify for the old shite cat there must be none aero brake levers used which rules out tt brake levers. There I have to use drops. Also this an 80's build and back I'm not sure what was commonly used.
Tory members have lost the plot.
They would rather see there party break up and the u.k crumble and get there way witha clean break than compromise or see no Brexit at all.
I dont think the country is saveable against this kind of thinking.
This attitude extends to about one third of the public at least. When a significant proportion of the population no longer care about the country they live its lost. The country I was born in no longer exists.
Dont know much about Thomas bit I like this one. Bought the frame of a forum member. Another forum member supplied the disc wheel.
The frame has 126mm spacing. The disc wheel is based in a record rear hub. No idea who made the wheel.
The front wheel uses a 24h mavic mach 2 cd2. Rear tyres a old conti giro and the front a vittoria all weather tubular. Both in 22 mm.
The chainset is a miche advanced with a 56t campagnolo novo record chainring. A 6 speed 14-28t freehweel and mavic rd provide some gearing choice.
I wont lie it not that comfortable but I can hold the position for a short tt. It will make an outing for the next club tt next thursday
I'm not fast at tt but the club has an old white category and I think this qualifies.
You need to fit more tape. If the tyre went on easily I assume you mean by hand. It was too loose more tape and make it a right fit and you would have less faff. See my website. I have never need a tube to get a tyre seated.
For low pressure mtb tyres at 20 psi it's possible. Anything approaching road pressures is a non no.
You'll never get the tyre to remain seated if you flat which means carrying a spare tube. Youll also need lots of tape and even then the bead hook may not retain the bead.
Hunt use that rim. In fact all hunt alloy rim are kinlin made. Kinlin wont admit it though. Kinlin sleeve joining is pretty distinctive as are the alloys they use.
