    Having problems setting up a 70s/80s braze on Super Record front mech, Gipiemme chain set, down tube shifters, six speed block on the back.

    The back end of the mech cage is rubbing on the crank arms, so have adjusted the limit screw to stop the cage moving that far out - however now the chain rubs on the inside of the cage in the big ring / little sprocket combo. Ideas ? Have tried to rotate the front mech on the braze-on mount so the back of the cage clears the crank arm, but being braze-on it self centres to some extent

    I use Powertap mobile on my iPhone every now and again to record rides when I haven't got my Garmin with me. It looks as though Training Peaks have turned off the link between the two now with their recent api changes.

    Any other ios apps I could use that records GPS and Power and uploads to Training Peaks ? Alternatively, any way I can pull the data from Powertap mobile to manually upload to Training Peaks ?

    Didn't have any plans for racing this year other than my club's evening 10 handicap league, and have been training as such for this using Sweet Spot base and Sustained Power build plans on Trainer Road.

    However I've got a hankering for track again, and will probably enter one of the local track leagues in addition - so a 10mile TT on Tuesday, Track League on Friday.

    Only on week 2 out of 8 for the Sustained Power Build plan (sweet spot, threshold and a little V02), is it worth carrying on with this or swop to something more geared towards V02max work ?
    One for the Trainer Road experts I guess

    I'll give it a go then as it appears you can get singles quite cheaply.

    Anyone bought from NJS Export recently ? What's the turnaround like from order to delivery ? Considering buying some 110mm spaced wheels (I have an old road/path frame with 110mm spacing at the back).

    Also, will someone buy this before I buy another frame that's slightly too small for me

    Yes, the Harmon/Kelly partnership was great. Boulting/Miller shaping up to be their replacements.

    Kirby is terrible - an out of tune David Duffield covers act.

    Those are BMX levers that are different to the lever in the Keirin set, no ?

    Anyone know where I can the Brake Lever (or similar) from the Dia Compe Kierin brake set separately ?

    I love this forum. Looking through CP to look at bar tape choices on vintage bikes (going Fizik as it looks fine here) and came across this lovely thread.
