Re: the pedals, I have heard of people drilling & tapping a small grease hole a la DMR V8, with a grub screw to close the hole. Will see if I can find you some pics of where to do it......


I drill a small hole in the plastic end cap, pump a load of grease in then put a dob of glue in the hole. Saves drilling and tapping the pedal body and potentially getting swarf in the bearings.

Bikes looking very tasty, the pedals don't look as in your face as the early photos.

Couple of recent changes.

The Ultra-mag pedals just got progressively worse until a few rides ago, the body completely removed itself from the axle. I've put them to one side for now until I calm down with them and can be bothered having a proper look at them. They've been replaced with my spare set of MG-1s, they're a bit heavier (200g ish) and not as pimp. But at least they're reliable.

Finally, last week my X9 chainset died, the driveside arm developed a bit of a death wobble, so I thought I'd best swap them out before it completely falls of and kills me to death. Got a bargain on an M770 XT chainset off Merlin, just over £120. I wanted to replace my BB anyway, so that worked out well, once I sell the chainrings, the cranks and BB will have cost me £60. Which is very much worthwhile as Shimano chainsets are better than truvativ/SRAM ones to the nth degree imho.

Right, it's time to revive the old girl and stop being such a mincing, pansy, shaved legged, skinny latte drinking, homo roadie poofter!

New tires have been ordered for the old girl in the shape of some Racing Ralph double defence snakeskin affairs. That's me being optimistic and hoping for a decent dry spell this summer.

Hoping to get over the water and give her a good thrashin over at Llandegla in a few weeks.
