I might have a 110mm stem in the parts box if you need it.

Guess this falls under the ss category. used for leisurely jaunts following No1 son around on his balance bike and to throw on the train for the odd city trip.

Thanks for the comments folks, I was almost not going to show it because I thought it might be too scruffy.

Not quite as scary as they look! they're caked in dry mud in the photo and admittedly look like they're about to blow apart :lol: ....tyres (although vintage) are sound.

Two rides so far today, a good hour in the bush on a ss and a pootle about the streets on the speedwell with the better half. In both cases can feel the benefit of this one ring business, far less time worrying about which gear you should be in and far more opportunities as a result to look up and enjoy the world around you.

Preaching to the choir I guess.

tell me more about the spring on the seatpost. i'd love one of those on my mtb (without paying through the nose for some modern swanky version).

The Breeze and Angell Hite-Rite, iconic piece of 80's mountain bike kit

They come up on fleebay US pretty regularly.. I have a black spring race version (shorter travel) sitting in a drawer somewhere.

The slight rises around here disagree with my knees when combined with this chainring. Plus the cranks spider is bent.

Only ring to ride in is the big dog!

Was disappointed when I had to go down from a 52 to a 49 chainring :( same ratio, 17/16t sprockets, but it looks less imposing :(
