Musta missed this. I might be able to help you Dodge. I'll check the shed in the morning.

G'Day Dodge.

Sorry mate I checked the shed. I've got one 122 BCD ring but I doubt a 53t Stronglight would do the job on a FG.

Yeah I know what ya mean, it looks crap with the big ring like that so I've modified it a bit :mrgreen: . I cut the outer ring off, filed the fingers and bolted the inner ring hard up against them. It has put the chain alignment out a couple of mm but it still runs freely. I know it's a bit bodgy :oops: but it is a budget project keeping with original equipment where possible. :D My 36H flip-flop has arrived so next job is to polish up the original rim and build the wheel, then I'll be happier with the looks. Ya see a few bikes out there with odd wheels and it just doesn't look right I reckon :?
Oh... I changed the seat too :D

G'day lads,

I wanted to show the Stronglight cranks I had updated the beast with but unfortunately I didn't get any photos before this happened. I was run off the road, hit the gutter and face planted the concrete. :cry:

Comparing the before and after pics, the steering angle is much steeper :lol:

I must give a rap for the Maxxis Detonator tyres though... I don't know how, but it didn't puncture :shock:
