    Hi, can anyone confirm if the omnium kickstand is the same as the ergotec double flex 3 that used to come spec'd on the tern gsd?
    Have used both and they seem to be the same design.
    We've had a free supply of ones that have come off gsd's, but we keep snapping them and the supply is starting to dry up.
    If they are indeed the same, then I'll just order more of the ergotecs, as there is a distributor for tern down here in NZ and will be much faster than ordering from the omnium website.
    Alternatively, has anyone found a better kickstand that will work with an omnium?
    Thanks.

    I've snapped a set in the same spot before, drive side at the pedal. Google image search comes up with others at that spot too.

    Is this a mt3 witha draw bar?

    I picked up the auction that I won. Turns out the bender that I wanted has the most dies, which is nice. Unfortunately no handle though, so will need to sort that and a base so that I can either mount it on a stand, or in a vice.
    Only thing I could out about it was this flyer from 1947.

    Thanks!
    Yeah, seems like a huge shortage everywhere at the moment. I'll definitely try a few mild steel ones first as 4130 was already stupidly expensive in NZ before covid, not sure I even want to check costs now.

    Ah, that bender looks great. Bars look awesome too!
    What thickness of mild steel are you using?

    Did you have any luck with this?
    I've made a bender before, but only for smaller diameter rack tubing.
    Have recently won an auction that has 3 different benders in it and am hoping I'll be able to use one for handlebars.
    The one in the blue bucket is what I wanted but think the one in the red is the same as the hilmor you were looking at getting. If you did end up finding one, I'd love to know how you went.

    Picked these up off a local auction site in NZ.
    Going to feel slightly bad for wearing them.
    Anyone know the age?

    Ah yeah, did look into these but unfortunately SKS don't have a distributor in NZ and shipping from most sites is apparently taking a couple of months.
    Planet bike do single front 20inch by 60mm front fenders for a recumbent bike that would be perfect, but the distro doesn't bring them in. I'm going to contact them and see if there's a chance they can do a special order.
    In the meantime, I've cut down a rear tern gsd mudguard and salvaged mounting and struts from something I already had because they only sell them without hardware, which seems insane.
    Hopefully sometime soon, Velo orange do a 29er/20inch mudguard set like they do with the 26/20. Would make life a whole lot easier.

    20 inch front fenders, anyone have a source? After black plastic. To cover 2.1 at least. Have 4 omniums that need them (two wifi). Would buy wifi sets from omnium but they aren't in stock.
    Thanks.
