Well you wouldn't credit it.
I spent a couple of hours in the shed today mocking up the fenders.
It appears I will be able to retain the lower BBB XL Fueltank but not with my new Nalgene wide mouth water bottle.
I had to laugh as it appears I'll get away with a 1.5 pet bottle which I didnt expect.
I'll have to seek some measurements of a Nalgene narrow mouth to see if ones worth ordering.
I'll be spitting if I cant get one in their blue plastic to at least match the colour of the one it would be replacing.
If not I'll consider a smaller capacity narrow mouth or give up entirely and stick with Pet bottles which is the cheaper option.

Not only that but you can then make you whole bike HEX key getting rid of some of the annoying Phillips head and Flat tip screws you come across.


On the subject of stainless steel bolts etc does anyone know a good online source for same?

Thanks

There is probably someplace closer to you (this one is on the Gold Coast), but Bolts Nut Screws Online have provided excellent service even for the rather low value orders I've placed. I must admit to over-ordering at times because I feel embarrassed about the size of my order.

Thanks. After posting here my Googlefu kicked in and found some options that handle small orders ... couldn't find them on a previous search so should be good once I work out my needs plus a few spares.

Hi Andrew
Who did you find?
RonKs outfit look like they have some stainless hex couplers I need to finish my mudguards but some more options would be great.
Cheers :D

I found a couple of sites but only kept this URL ... https://www.stainlessstore.com.au/index.php I found it very doing a search in eBay and it and others popped up as advertisers :)

It is funny to be coming back to this thread which I started way back in 2012 and now considering a ECR build. Anyway Aidan did you end up going with a Jones bar? Using a handlebar bag with it?

Thanks

Hi Andrew,
I have not yet bought the genuine Jones bar and currently feel in no hurry to do so as the faux yet licensed Titec bar has given no issue (yet) and offer the same angles.
I currently use a Thorn accessory bar that RonK kindly donated to me:
http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/thorn-access ... 0/?geoc=au
or a similar length to hang my Ortlieb handlebar bag.
Soon as I know your likely home for a few days, I'll try to get to Fremantle so you can A. get to try a Rolloff and B. feel just how heavy some 622 rims are simply clad with 2 inch Mondials, let alone Surly Knards (Which I believe will make you sh*t a brick by their inertia).

Thanks heaps for the offer ... more than happy to take you up on it ... does coming to Joondalup work better for you? Will be here most days from December 29 to December 31 and then again after January 6.

Sounds good ... curious as to what cranksets you are both using. I was going to not go with a Rohloff but I keep coming back to the idea :) One issue I have is trying to get an idea on the chainline required. I know Logan at Pedalling Nowhere has a Shimano Deore XT crankset on his build but he is running Velocity Blunt 35 rims where as I would be going with either Surly Rabbit Holes or Velocity Dually so not sure how that will impact on the chain line.

Ideally I would like to be able to use something like a SRAM X1 (assuming it is suitable - need to research this more).
