    Good. That makes me feel slightly better. I shall break out the lube and ease her on slow-like.

    No and er, no. I got too scared but I shall try again. The sprocket goes on clockwise and the lock-ring anti-clockwise, no?

    Does anybody use an EAI sprocket with goldtecs? I've just received a shiny set of goldtecs laced to cxp33s (nicey-nice) and tried to attach an EAI steel sprocket but they don't like each other. I could go at them with the chainwhip but this is giving me a fairly large amount of fear....
    The sprocket has the letters 'ISO' upon't but the hubs are saying nothing and the betd website is equally as tight-lipped. Anybody have any ideas?

    Only seems fair...... I definitely wouldn't want to try selling anything in my first post now, would I? ;-)

    First of all: Hello.
    I've been lurking in the forum shadows for a while now, getting info on the best way to go aboot building/buying my first fixie. I'm almost there, just waiting on my IRO frame to arrive at Cavendish cycles....
    Along the way my I rescued this Raleigh frame from my girlfriends dad's shed but it turned out to be too big for me. It's a Pulsar or a Neutron or a Quasar, something very eighties anyway and claims to have aerospace tubing (the seat tube is slightly oval) but is only made from Hi Tensile 18-23 steel. It has a fair bit of rust, particularly on the fork where some sort of lantern used to be attached and on the link between the chainstays. Sizes: 60cm C-T, 1" threaded, 115mm rear-spacing.
    I'm going to chuck it but if anyone wants it for any reason, maybe for polo or just for a practice paint job, they're most welcome to pick it up from Hackney Central at the weekend. Let me know and cheers for the advice that I've picked up on the way.
