CRC Blue for the MTB, red for the commuter and roadie. Price just right to get me over the free shipping hurdle 8)

Non pro I know but that's how I roll :mrgreen:

After a few too many rainy winter days, I decided it would be a good idea to refurbish my Dad's old Malvern Star roadie and convert it into a fixed gear :lol:

The front brake still needs attaching, but I'm quite happy with the outcome so far.

In all honesty, it was mainly because I couldn't afford a new groupset.

This thread is awesome, that fixie malvern looks awesome marsbe. I love the colour scheme.


MADCAP - also an awesome ride. Great to see you back in cycling again. I was wondering where I can get one of those stands from?

I got my Gitane Mach 1200 stripped back and all the new gear on it, so I should have some photos of it tomorrow if weather permits haha. The paint looked like it was pink in the pictures i've posted in the past. It looks much better after a good clean.

Wow thats awesome thanks for that. I was just at that shop over the weekend. I should have bought one.

They seem to work well, is there any worries of it falling at any stage?

Doesn't look too bad? Thanks mate :)
I still have to mount the brifters haha, I will be replacing the shifter housing this week. I was given some new jagwire housing cables but i'm not sure which ones are shifter and which ones are brake housing ones.

I should have the chain on tomorrow night so I can finally take it for a spin. I really like the FSA crank that came in the package.

Cable outers are different construction for brake vs shifter. Brakes are slightly thicker usually and of a coiled, flat wire construction. Shift cable outers need to be incompressible for proper indexing and are made out of longitudinal wires.

Ah thats awesome. I wonder if I could tell which ones I have, I the bicycle shop was nice enough to give me a few jagwire ones but can't seem to tell the difference.

Yeah it is a bit uncomfy at the moment haha. Its like a kick in the nuts every time I go over a bump haha.

Can I adjust the toe in angle of the seat by much? I might get another seat at this stage, I found my one on ebay for $10 haha

You'll have to take the bottle rack off to adjust saddle angle Adrian, the bolt that holds the saddle into the cradle is also the one that allows tilt, just loosen it off a tad and you should be right to slip the saddle a little forward.

There is a lot of adjustment to be had in saddles. I put a hard book on top, then a spirit level and try get it perfectly level (Works for my comfort).

I'd put something a bit nicer than a $10 saddle on, if not for anything but better comfort and quality.
