    Think it's a 3 year warranty on this frame, so it'll be out of warranty now, unfortunately. Guess first port of call would be PBK to see what they say... Should be fun!

    Total dredge, but I got a GFTi secondhand a while ago and gave my warranty replacement 4s disc frame to my little brother. He built it up and has been riding around on it for the last few months until, quelle surprise, it cracked!

    Guess where?

    ITM Visia doesn't look too shabby - understated, not massive and i think it's 10deg. High on bikes have had them going pretty cheap on their ebay store for a couple of years.

    Saying that, I went from one of them to one of these: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/ahead-11-8-3­18-stem-black-id_8529483.html

    Thrifty man's superleggero?

    Any more info on this? Price, geo etc?

    Not a network person either but presumably your other/old DHCP server is no longer acting as one? And what length of time was the DHCP server providing IPs for? Usually lease is renewed after 24hrs, but not sure what'd happen if lease time was set to 0 (i.e. forever) on the old DHCP server?

    Have you restarted the devices after setting pihole as only DHCP server on the network? I'm guessing gateway IP is set correctly too on the pihole?

    For anyone who has the kinetics fork. How do you get the mudguard stay that fits around the axle on the NDS to stay in place and not leave the hook that keeps the front in place when folded too high up? I've got mine jammed under the QR but can't fit the washer and little thing it sits inside without leaving the QR quite a distance away from the lips on the fork, which worries me.

    Seems it's either low enough to keep the front end hooked to the frame when folded but brakes squeal, or pull the stay a little higher and get a crap fold but no squealing.

    Would i be better off using a 9mm thru axle QR? I've got a novatec d791 so end caps aren't hard to come by and I've got a 9mm QR axle kicking around somewhere...

    Cheers! Just checked, they were £83.

    @sacredhart they're 130bcd dura ace 7800 ht2 cranks. The BB is a sm-bb52. Needs a spacer or two on the drive side between BB shell and BB Cup.

    Actually, the drive side crank is a 7800, left crank is a stages PM - 6800.

    Frankly, it's a ridiculous bike, but I can't stop dicking about with it 🤷♂️

    Edit - I've got a set of 130bcd ultegra ht2 cranks, they're 172.5mm. Had them fitted to the Brompton before I decided to stick the power meter on (which is 175mm). They're a bit scratched and I filed the lips for the little ring down a bit to ensure it didn't foul the Brompton chainstay.

    It's a Kinetics one. Got it from ebay a few months ago for £7oish. Think it must've been fitted/used but is basically mint.

    Cheers! Yeah I did shop around but didn't spot those, saw the kinlin nbr but seem to recall it mentioned needing narrow tyres... And there was a carbon rim somewhere on ebay for £100 or so. Did want black braking surface.

    The rim I went for was the hub gear version I think, with angled spoke holes. Thought that'd be preferable to the regular one considering the angle they'd be at...
