    This sounds like a stupid question, but I have no clue. Can I put say, a 700x20c tyre on my 700x23c rim ? Would it work ?

    I'd appreciate anyones knowledge on this !

    Cheers

    Well then. Considering buying a Lo Pro Frame for £175. Un named frame but is of good quality and condition. It takes a 700c back and a 24 inch Front. The Seller says he has some 24 inch tubs and tyres that could be sold with the frame (but he hasn't given me a price for them), although looking at the price of 24 inch tub tyres, it appears that they are bloody expensive. After speaking to Airnimal bikes (odd folding things), they said they would sell me a 24 inch Clincher road wheel for £80 New, and would include a Schwalbe durano tyre for an extra £32.99 . Nearly £115 for a wheel and a tyre sounds like a rip off to me, so what do I go for ? Any help in decision making would make me a very happy person.

    DP18 vs Weinmann Pegasus. Varno sells both but I cannot decide for my new rear wheel

    It's finished - and been for a test ride around the block too!

    Pics as promised:

    Thats come out nice there. I think if you were to upgrade it, a new stem would make it look loads better - something like this : http://ebay.eu/1d6nPtt

    Nice, but wrong saddle. Needs a turbo or a B17 Narrow :)

    Sorry to bring up the old thread, but I bought the Jam package for £99 on offer two years ago. tbh the quality is not great, the tapers on the Lasco cranks twisted and became screwed after not very long, so I bought some 70s SR Crank arms, and a new Andel Chain ring, which are much better. The KMC chain is, well, a KMC chain. The tyres have lasted pretty well, but then again I don't skid every 10 seconds. I'm still using the wheels on my Peugeot build, although I'm looking to upgrade soon !
