  1. I find it very fun on the way home from work to come across someone who has bought one using the cycle to work scheme on the premis of 'getting fit', cruise up to the back of said lazy f**ker who is freewheeling on flat ground when they should be pedalling/remotely putting some effort in, sit there 'til I decide "you're in my bloody way you slow arse fat b*****d", click back a cassette cog or two, go round them at my lesiure and fck off into distance with barely a change in heartrate. You can do the same with restricted mopeds too.
  2. (Taking this completely on face value) If no one scraped owt and the area was left how it was found then where is the "such vandalism"? Sensationalist whingebag pillock.
  3. Channel on youtube called homofaciens - a german guy who built a budget cnc router and also a plotter from things like m10 stud bar, a dremel, stepper motors from scrap printers and his own linux code. Might be of some use to you @manuel. Also as a subnote all of his videos in english have the comedy value of making him sound like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  4. Aye I found that already bud, but when using this (fairly comprehesive) tap chart I couldn't make head nor tail. There doesn't seem to be (at least to me) a size that correlates to what those peeps quoted - If the dia. sounds right then the approximate TPI seems off or vice versa. I've had the freehubs apart tonight to make up the 1 good from 2 bad so I've had the calipers out, taken (mildly!) informed guess' as to what size I'm after and ordered up a small selection of bolts and nuts in those sizes to see if a lockring threads into them. I can only be wrong and it's cost about £4.90something to find out.
  5. @forteh as said, 1.37 x 24tpi is BSA BB's and screw on cassette/freewheel thread. @monkeyseemonkeydo is correct in saying that a cassette lockring dia. is a larl bit smaller. @CurtisRider I had forgotten that. Still, the point of the exercise is to attempt to repair something that is otherwise shelf art, so a 7spd (or even smaller maybe) would be just fine. FWIW I checked a cassette lockring with a thread guage which said 1mm pitch. So I double checked by nestling a m6x1 bolt into the freehub body i already have (the one that is going to get the salvaged parts from the fecked pro2 driver that's on the way) and that [the bolt] fits like a glove. Just need to get the diameter sussed now.
  6. Anyone know the thread specs for the lockring on a standardised shimano HG spline freehub/driver body, in this case a hope pro2 old? It seems to be a cards-close-to-chest secret if google is owt to go by. Diameter? Pitch? Thread standard - american, english (24 or 26tpi cycle thread maybe), metric, other? Dia. can be in fractional or decimal. I'll convert and work it all out in the end. I've an alu 9spd freehub body coming from ebay but it's got a stripped cassette lockring thread so whilst I do intend to raid it for parts i'm curious to see if I could shorten everything to an 8 or 7spd and cut a new lockring thread. Seeing as by that point it's a pen holder anyway I see nothing to lose and something to gain. Thanks in advance.
  7. The sound of the brake echoing for bloody miles whilst being contrasted by true, absolute, silence. That was the standout point for me. All the stuff that was leading foot into the obstacale was proper tech (mabye naturally mongo foot??), and the big stuff was ballsy and er, big, I guess. Not withstanding you looked like you were there on your own and medical help was no doubt a very long way away. Liked that very much.
  8. It's a floating linkage that acts when the shock linkage moves meaning that the cranks stay in the same (relative) place, which in turn means the chain doesn't have any funky tight/loose situations no matter where the shock is in it's stroke, or how much the effective chainstay length changes throughout that stroke. It's really quite a piece of design when you get to see and poke around it in the flesh. Pluuss the entire frame & s/arm is a massive tanky carbon MF, so y'know, that helps too...
  9. My instant reaction when I was told in dismay "Chris Cornell's dead" was "What!!???" The Beeb are reporting that he was found on the bathroom floor after the show last night. So I'm sat here blasting Audioslave's first album as I don't have any Soundgarden to hand on CD.
  10. Worlds at addingham were 2005, "I woz thair" & I do believe I still have the program somewhere. I distinctly remember watching him on the diamondback, going round with Mr. Ashton on the silver frame with red forks, with Chris Akrigg in tow on the 'mongoose' (in reality a painted and stickered up megamo) :looks at MBUK poster of him on the giants causeway hanging on the wall to concour: I also recall the section over the other side of the hill (furthest away from the road) involved a severe 15+ft. drop to flat/scrappy rock and the other ashton team rider (The name of the rider escapes me) had his rear brake slip at the top resulting in him bailing out onto his lower back. The section must have been set out to get rider's to go Fuuuuuuuk that! & take 5's but in 20/20 hindsight it was just dangerous. The rider got up and limped away with help but only after a fairly tense 10mins with the 1st aiders and the spinal board.
  11. You might be right, you may know the 'truth', you may have even accessed the inner circle of the stonecutters' society (old simpsons ref.) but as you keep pointing out we the people don't know. don't care, or are just fine with their world (in their 1st person world at least) the way it is to them. Even if you are the higher power have the good decency to do what the mormons on my doorstep last saturday didn't, and realise that we ain't interested and move on. I also wouldn't waste my blood pressure on insulting someone that I don't know from adam on the internet DAMMIT I got snaked.
  12. I heard a story on the radio news today that there has been a clinical study that involved feeding ket to the severely depressed ...aaand (quelle suprise) it made them a shit ton happier and less depressed. An unreported side affect may have involved preaching to people who have no interest in listening to what you have to say - like when the mormons come knocking and you answer the door in a (slightly giddy) hurry because you were expecting postie to bring you your new shiny.
  13. I'm 90% certain I've got a copy somewhere also if you get stuck - It'll either be on the ancient memory stick I had for college or the IDE HDD in the old family tower - the latter being more difficult to retrieve but not impossible by any means.
  14. {Figuratively speaking} In one hand I have a nice brand new, sealed, non disc, dishless, low flange 32hole front hub I picked up cheap on a wim. Int other hand I have a straight, round and until further notice, redundant 36 hole rim. In my piles of crap I have half a dozen suitable complete sets of spokes, plus a myriad of random odd spokes. I also have a set of 16mm araya nipples Does anyone know of any way, including funky patterns like missing out hub holes, snowflake, 3 spoke crows foot, 5 spoke crows foot etc. that I could mate these odds and end into a useable wheel? I recently did a 36 hole hub into a 24h aero rim & 28h hub into the matching 24h aero rim for my workbike, but they were a piece of piss - for 36 into 24 you just miss hub end spoke holes in the 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 o'clock positions, and the front 28 into 24 works out like any other "miss 4" build. Mismatching more rim holes that hub holes is next level though. I thought maybe I could use 28 or even 24 of the hub holes and crack it that way but I haven't got to sitting down with the parts yet though. Suggestions (other than "buy more parts") will fall on open minded ears. Cheers.
  15. I also have a 1st gen, single bolt bar clamp Racing Line body (the later version had a two bolt split clamp). It was fitted xmas 2013 (and been in continuous use) and has not experienced the symptoms you describe. There is a little more play than with a magura 05, but it cant be more than 5mm even with the pivot bolt hanging half way out (using standard mag 05 lever blade). Cheaper V-brake levers (tektro for example) use those little white plastic shims to overcome wobble like you describe, maybe find some of them/make your own and retrofit? EDIT: Re read your post; Do you possibly mean that the pivot bolt hole in the lever blade has elongated?
