I have Cane Creek SCR-5 levers on mine which also have a return spring. No flapping or rattling. Good value for money too. But seem to be discontinued which is a shame
Thanks but I'm down in London so it's a bit far
Depending on how the axle looks inside the hub (ie whether it is machine for the bearings) then you may be able to replace it with a longer threaded axle.
Looks great. Can i ask who did the disc tabs? Been thinking about doing the same to mine, although my current mullet set up works well enough so not sure I should bother.
That's exactly what I did. Plus I straightened the bracket that attaches to the top of the fork to run the rack lower. You can just about see in the pictures that it sits just above the mudguard. Although I wonder in retrospect if flipping that bracket upside down would have worked instead.
It's a Lomo tail bag. Fits perfectly on the pizza rack and is really good value for money - solidly built and £37. It's a decent size for commuting. In that picture it's got work shoes and shirt, spare clothes, tools, tube and pump.
I've had this Cross Check for 11 years I think. It was pretty much the only frame that could take big tyres back then. Had it set up many different ways although it's pretty settled as a commuteur for the moment. I added a Salsa Vaya disc fork for that old school mullet look and so it actually stops. Drive train is a mongrel collection of 9 speed stuff but very reliable, including for 2 years living in Africa. Love this bike!
Awesome - thanks!
Those bar extenders are awesome. Where can I get some?!
