Mate genuinely still has it.

Also realised I need some new wheels for it, as I've taken the handbuilts and are riding them now (such a good set of wheels!).

Have to widen rear drop outs.

Otherwise she is good to go!

Thanks for such an insightful post tigoose.

But can't be gone totally, you're still here.


I honestly need some time. Harder than it sounds, given I'm covering nearly all of Victoria in the car or on the bike at the moment. Oh and no joy yet making the rear drop outs wider. Is it just a matter of slowly pushing them wider?

On one of my steel frames. I just placed them (the rear drop outs) on the out side of the jaws on a vice. And slowly pushed them apart. It worked out great.

Tinea,
not sure of your meaning by this but i meant no offence to you. Honestly this build has taken ages and i wasn't having a dig at you being lazy or whatever as i couldn't help but think if it was my build i wouldv'e lost motivation on it over this time.
So if i annoy you that much i'd love to clear it. :D
