I need to put a half link in to shorten it a touch because if I pull a full link out, i can't get my street wheels with 18t rear on!

Alternatively, i'm most likely just going to get a bigger chainring, and 49/14 is just slightly too short on the track.

No its a different one foo. The pair from you are going on the retro TT bike. This one was given to me by a guy on another forum - for free! The aluminium is coming away from the carbon at the point where the rim joins ..its okay if I don't put too much pressure in the tyre.

Surly Steamroller running fixed 47x18 (69gi). Nothing flash, but a steel horizontal top tube beauty i think.

Kitted out as general purpose town / shopping / commute bike, soon to hopefully add light touring to its CV with a 180klm run down the coast coming up.

Mostly function winning out over form, with some very inelegant solutions to a host of practical requirements (mostly sourced in the plumbing section of Bunnings... tape, clamps, strap iron and bolts)

jaseyjase sleek looking scoot - I would get a half link and get rid of the chain tensioner - the bike will look a lot cleaner....

Hi,

I am pretty sure it is a McCaig frame. Do you still have this frame?
If so, please contact me on [email protected]

This was originally my road bike, built to my specs in the early 90s by Wayne Kotzur.

Paul Hillbrick converted the rear dropouts for me and Cheeky Transport in Newtown, NSW built the rest of the bike up.

Neat and sweet Eleri. Very nicely done.

Looks like a pretty hefty gear you're running.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Thanks Mulger Bill!

It's 74 from memory.

I'm doing a Fixie Imperial Century on it in about 6 weeks. We'll see if that gear is too big then I guess! It's fine for riding around town.

The old Malvern Star triathelete frame is slowly coming to life - I have decided to go with a custom paint job and will post a pic when it is finally done. I have also decided to go coaster brake and remove all hand brakes from the beast.

here is the before shot:

Laced up some clinchers and swapped the drops for risers for Summer!
