    think its Dani Rowe (King) commentating - but they are both so much better than 'kin Carlton Kirby- shithouse .... was hoping paying GCN twenty quid would mean I wouldn't have to listen to him ever again ...

    Ha , yes - correct ... I had it a million years ago - gave it to a friend who rides it all the time ...I service it occasionally and keep it going ... but it’s always an awkward bastard .... although I really enjoyed riding it around to block a few times on test drive .... rolls really well - bit to garish for me though
    Did see an old boy riding the racer version - same colour scheme - on Sunday ...

    Hi , cheers for replies ... in the end , worked out the method as forwarded by persona non grata .... I knew it would be something as simple as that ....
    Less beer during bike maintenance might be my lesson ....

    I m currently trying to set up a Shimano BR-M453 rear can ride brake .... which is situated under the chain stays for some unknown reason - just to make it a bastard to work on .. ? - and I cannot get the arms to stay sprung out .... there’s a 6mm Allen key with which to turn them but only a plastic cap which doesn’t seem to hold them ( away from the wheel under tension ) .... I am utterly flummoxed having not really paid any attention when dismantling them to give the bike a serious clean and service .....
    Has anyone had experience of these brakes and there set up .... ?
    Any ideas or knowledge most welcome .... two days in and numerous takings apart and I’m fed up ..... is it something dead simple I’m missing ... ?

    Interesting - off Clapham Park Road .... ? never heard of them either ...
    Claud Butler was originally in Aloysius Road which I think was where the swimming pool was/is .... and there is a Bicycle Mews near there now ...
