Retro Riverloop Raturdays :D

i finished work early today and dragged a few bits and pieces out and spread them around the garage floor.
you can see a fluoro yellow europa, in front of it is the recently acquired shogun samurai, then the vertex, with my mates completed giant kronos commuter (7sp rsx) in the background.
europa has been de-xenon'd and is being fitted with the 105 from the shogun, which in turn is receiving the veloce from the repco, which in turn is being fitted up with some lovely period correct superbe pro (some of which was originally on the raleigh - talk about teamwork!).
the vertex needs a suntour headset, and a correct fork is on its way from WA as of this afternoon.
europa, shogun should be finished, but i'm short on cables (as usual) so they're on order along with some other bits and pieces from wiggle. might ride the europa on raturday, might give the giant a burl before it goes off to it's new home. first world problems..

just started polishing my veloce cranks to fit on the shogun (instead of the 172.5 centaur cranks), and they're also 172.5 :(

what to do, what to do..

I certainly can't complain about the price.

I have a spare new black Jagwire kit if you want to use it. You can repay once you receive your order.

Hi guys,

I'm chasing a cheap crankset, prefer not Campy nor Shim SIS not BB30, any length, any nick, it's for the Vantage when I pull the Shim SIS off it, 5 or 6 speed is fine, not cotterpin, sort of a bit open otherwise.

I also have a SRAM S500 175mm 53/39 BB30 in fairly good nick, didn't realise it was BB30 when I bought it, so if you know anybody who has a BB30 frame & wants a crankset, I'll take $70 just to shift it.

Sugino cranks with Cycloid elliptical rings? That's just the first that comes to mind, i've got about half a dozen "not shimano" cranksets. SunTour GPX?

Yeah mate they would be perfect, PM me with price (or publish here if you want), we'll have to arrange some way of me picking them up or maybe just chuck them in a box & post them down.


Thanks mate, not sure if it would work but I'll be pulling the Shim SIS gruppo off my Vantage tourer, they way Shim have always copied everybody it's highly likely the spring may be close to your broken Suntour one, once I get the RD off I can fire it up to you so you can pull it apart & see if it will work.

Just the worse one, my Vantage is my back-up commuter (I alternate between the Malvy Kenetic & the Vantage), so it's a work bike not a show pony, Dan's got a set of Sakae ones that he text me about, but they don't have any rings on them. Just need to know the BCD Danny, if Dan post's that, if anyone has some rings that they wouldn't use (not after stuff that's worn out), because they are cosmetically very plain, give us a hoy.

I do have a set of 130BCD rings sitting here so if Dan's crankset is 130 I laughing :lol: , if it isn't then I'll need some rings.

What I'm looking for is just a set that you probably wouldn't use because they're cosmetically ugly, rust isn't any issue, I'll just run a wire wheel over them & keep the chain lube up to them or even give a dose of chinese chrome.

Sakae cranks are 130BCD - had a biopace set on it but they went off to bicycle revolution.
I'll bring them Raturday.

I need like 1 set, but Dan & I are currently in the first stages of negotiation (no we're not getting married), & if he really doesn't need his ones, I can use the rings off the BB30 set (which is probably going to be a total loss for moi).


Anyway, some please buy this, it's just too small for me but I'm still super motivated to buy just to have it because it's sooo pretty.

FFS munga, buy this damn bike, it would fit you like a glove & only AUS$140 delivered at present. You don't get the disc rear wheel, but after looking at the 650 front 700 rear set up, I think I like it.
