Re: Hunting For new MTB Tyres

Lockdown cost effective solution down here in cash-strapped Shropshire is of course two ratchet straps slung over a roof beam in the garage. Bike (cycle) at any height you want and free as I already have the straps for when I strap the 1100S onto the back of the motorhome. Needed the solution for ge...

PM me your email address and I'll send over the pic of mine (standard stand length, shorter GS link) as I cannot post pics on here.
And before Steve, Paul or anyone else shows me how to do it again - I do everything you all / the instructions say, but they still won't post.

Re: My other bike needs a good polishing......

Well my engine-less two wheeler is a cheap (£100) mountain bike from the local cycle emporium with and expensive (£15) wide gel saddle. And I'm happy to say I've managed to get up to 10 to 12 miles per day now (it being 40 years since I last did any serious cycling) But only when it is sunny and war...

I have the shorter GS Paralever torque arm on mine, but didn't put a longer side stand on it.
Is yours the longer shock as well, because mine is at a slightly more canted over angle when parked, but it's fine?
Can do a pic if you want.
Just thinking about saving you some hassle is all.

Re: These round black things everyone waarts on about

I like your cheap as chips solution Chris. But I would be very careful - as once the bike is rolling the centrifugal force of the wheel spinning will tend to lift the blobs of sealant. It only takes one to leak slightly and you've got an interesting situation barrelling into a corner with a flat fro...

Dave the Hannovarian Your mind has clearly been affected by lockdown and is now working in a devious way compared to the workings of normal people.

Re: Anyone been for a ride yet?

Oh, she passed ok Jon (spent the weekend checking it all over and fixing a dead horn - thanks Mr Parry). Took the thermal linings out of my Rukka as I have put a lockdown stone on and can't fit into my airflow summer trousers. Blazing hot sun and about half the number of cars about as per the old no...

Re: Mallory Park 1990

Yes John you're right, it is Slick Bass, Foggy's mechanic later on.
Also Ron Williams from Maxton (grey hair) in the second photo, who was given the shove in the IOM and Derek Chittenden from Hejira brought in for rider Steve Cull.

Re: Anyone been for a ride yet?

Resurrecting my R1100S to the road today - fork seals need doing on the F800ST.
Mot booked for 3.30pm and that is 12 miles away.
Will take a longer route home but still only about 30 miles in total.

You would just have to buy a generic can with the right inlet diameter and length for the 11s and make up your own brackets or cut off the ones on the original pipes. But, you can get a lot of fabrication done for the money you save on their prices.

Re: Powdercoating

I had some nylon tyre levers for use on the carbon wheels on the race bikes back in the 90's - to be kinder on the lacquered finish.
I guess they would be the thing to use on anything softer than stove enamelling (like powder coatings).

Check out the Fuel range - made in Kendal UK, start at £175 and come with a lifetime guarantee.
Couple of race team bike builders I know reckon they are good kit.

Be interesting to see how much it affects the fuel consumption as well after you have put some miles on it.
