    Original plans had been a "full something or other" build but I ended up unable to decide between a few different groups.

    So for the meantime this is built up with a bit of everything: Shimano / Campagnolo / Mavic / Maillard / Stronglight / Simplex / Spidel / Cinelli / Cambio Rino / Modolo / TA / Reydel.

    First choice has always been a silver Simplex SLJ seatpost (which later became the black Mavic one). But not found one in 26,6 yet - I've a 26,4 to swap...

    Bar angle yeah to move a little. Which cable you think is too long?

    Pedals are Cambio Rino.

    Are those track nuts a two piece design because it doesn't look like it in the photos. Seems like it would make a mess of the dropouts when tightening them up if not.

    Get R24s from RCZ, 160eur. Well worth it.

    Listing stated no returns at all however given the state he accepted it.

    Question about my options here:

    I bought an Ultra-Torque crankset a few weeks ago, arrived and turned out to be far from as advertised.

    Bearings were not just gritty, they couldn't be physically turned at all. I said as much and the seller agreed to a return being that there was no mention of any issues in the advert - infact they said they simply hadn't inspected the crank at all.

    The return occurred, and the user has now refunded me the original cost. But not the cost of the return shipment. So now I'm out a small but annoying all the same amount of money.

    Any ideas where ebay/paypal side if I raise a stink here? I don't feel I should be paying here for someone else's fuck up.

    I've one of those that came with a similar fork. In the case of mine the black clamp had been forced to fit by being compressed, I assume with a vice of some kind. TBH whilst my fork is pretty slim your looks slimmer still. Something custom may be the better option.

    After far too much time spent trying to work out just what PF30 BB I should be looking at and with which crankset, this is seeming pretty tempting:

    The catchily named Sugino EXP110-601D. 30mm spindle, I can get it in suitable combination of rings for where i'll be riding - the 46/34 option should be ideal. and it comes with a Sugino PF30 BB too.

    All for about 155gbp - which doesnt seem too crazy from what I can tell looking around at various other companies PF30 BB options and conversions.
