    my spot in team 1 is now available.

    Could be interested in that

    Not sure that repainting will add value, but it'll probably make it easier and quicker to sell.

    You'll be forced to tidy the place, it'll look fresher and more cared for, and light, neutral colours (well, white or magnolia) make the place look more spacious and make it easier for buyers to imagine their stuff in there.

    Might make the difference between selling in three days and three months.

    (Quite seriously, a friend put in a couple of weeks of effort with his place, and then invited the estate agent in at the beginning of a week. Went on the market on the Thursday: he had three offers by close of business on the Monday.)

    Can I borrow the Royce bb tool and would you be willing to post it?

    Sure I can manage that

    Hmm.

    I seem to have a circular saw, Royce and Shimano BB tools, and a range of headset spanners. All in SE7, if that's any use to anyone - not exactly close to Leyton, and three weeks late for that request.

    (Could handily make use of the chop saw if it's not too far away - I don't have a whole lot of cutting to do though, so it's probably easier just to do it by hand rather than sorting out transport.)

    Aye, one-off it's a bit of hassle, but you could set up for production pretty easily.

    At that price, I'd take at least 2 - it's not worth borrowing your design and making my own ...

    What sort of dimensions did you work to? Something like 40mm slots?

    Aye, Pedalcover seem pretty good in terms of personal service (at policy inception and at renewal), and were about £200 cheaper for building & contents cover than M&S - both underwritten through AXA IIRC. Again, no claims experience.

    I've got BB taps (BSA only) in SE7 - welcome to come over ...

    Would have to be tomorrow (Wed 20th), or in a couple of weeks' time though - I'm going away on Thursday.

    Can you post a pic of the underside please - looks to me like the nose bolt has already been extended a good bit

    Looks like 6.35mm hand reamers are available cheap (probably because that's quarter-inch), but 6.1mm aren't.
