    I actually feel sorry for people who think they’re cool because they own a Lamborghini - they’re just cunts

    Woah there, Countache. Didn’t you 1980s or something?

    Did a nice couple of miles this morning with the boy on the back, then did a 20 mile round trip emergency food delivery for some sick friends.

    This thing is waaaaay more stable with some weight on it than my GT is. The GT wiggles around something chronic with the Hamax seat on it. I think it’s a combination of things. The weight is a lot further back on the GT because of the shorter wheelbase and it can get a bit of a springy pendulum going at slow speeds. Also I think while the GT is very stiff in the up/down direction, it’s not very stiff side to side and I can feel this in the steering. The Rudy feels much more solid.

    This is huge. Someone please close the thread, I don’t think we need to add anything else now.

    Front brake attached and canti hanger fitted. Brakes sort of adjusted. Saddle adjusted. Bar tape patched up. Spare bar plug not found. Quick pic before the Hamax kiddie seat goes on and me and the boy hit the local paths tomorrow!

    I really didn’t like the texture of that stuff either!

    That’s a HED disc, isn’t it? I don’t think that’s a cassette, I think it’s one of those Chinese 9-speed screw on mega freewheels. If you slip that aluminium axle off, I think there might be splines down the bore. It might be smaller than the usual Shimano one though.

    Weld it up and chainwhip, if in doubt!

    I’ve seen they seem to come in different thicknesses these days. Has there been a design change or is it a performance mod?

    Gaggia Classic owners, lend me your ears...

    How long does your grouphead gasket last? I've just smashed through one in a few months, I think the last one I changed was the original that came with the machine! OK, I might be wrong about that but it definitely lasted longer than just a few months...

    Original one lasted about 4 years. Second one about the same. Third one I don't know if it was a genuine Gaggia one now but it looked like an original and lasted 2 years. Latest replacement is not a genuine Gaggia one and is just a soft piece of shit rubber ring which I don't expect to last long.
