    Anyone seen any cheapish clippers online? I've had a tidy up round the sides / back with a beard trimmer but the top now requires action, it's too thick & the trimmer is just taking random chunks out then clogging up, does look suitably gash though

    Looks like 380 on my 2016 931 disc - it's currently wedged behind 2 other bikes at the back of the cupboard though so hard to be totally accurate! Fork on my 853 Volare is def 380 if that helps any.

    Unfortunately not, they do a steel & an alloy version - it's an alloy one on the current fork & last time I tried to remove one of those I made a dog's dick of it, was absolutely mangled!

    I hadn't actually thought of cutting one, the alloy one is weak enough a half decent pair of snips would go through easily - done a bit of searching earlier & the crown races for the 40 & 110 are (allegedly) backward compatible with the old S3 / S6 / S8 models so the Hope steel split one should do the trick, if not i'll order the CC one & get bodgy

    Alrighty - anyone know if the Hope 1 1/8 crown race will fit a Cane Creek 40 headset? I've done this previously with an older CC model & it worked perfectly, not sure if the crown race is the same across the models though... have a new fork on the way & no tools for setting the crown race, was thinking of using a Hope split one like I had previously to avoid temptation to smack anything with a hammer

    A friend had a frame (not Litespeed) go like that - kinda stepped along the middle of the chainstay, his was replaced (twice possibly) under a lifetime warranty, had certainly done plenty miles but not been hammered

    Finally finished the update on my Moda & got some miles on it - had an Athena group on here previously but tbh I liked the looks better than the functionality, might swap the fork out at some point for something straighter but it's pretty much done this time...

    Edit - usually wears the handbuilt wheels

    I thought about moving this on as I've another (allegedly nicer) steel bike that does the same job but I know i'd immediately regret it... still, that works well as a shiny Dura Ace clad clothes horse so not all bad

    Thread bump time - had a bit of an update to my trusty Volare in the shape of some rs81s, not sure the tyres aren't hideous on this frame but they'll stay for now - wheels & tyres were meant for another bike but this gets ridden more than anything so makes sense
