SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Wheel for sale

Hey,

I'm selling some of the parts from my Ibis Tranny 26" wheeled bike. I'd like to offer some of the bits here first before going to Ebay. I have a front wheel for sale. Ideally I'd like to keep the Tune Princess hub to build it into another wheel, but it's QR only and can't be adapted to modern thru-axle formats, unlike the latest versions made by Tune. The entire wheel, which includes a Tune Princess hub (in red), black DT Swiss aerolight spokes, red anodised aluminium nipples, a DT Swiss XRC300 carbon fibre rim with tape, weighs ~562 grams. I can show you the pictures on the scales to prove it.

If you are interested please mail me at:

matt"AT"modeseven.org

Substitute the "AT" for the usual @ symbol and drop me a line.

A ball park figure for this kind of thing should probably be around £350 for a wheel of this quality. You can come to view it or collect it from me in Cambridge pretty much anytime. And I'm open to offers.

Cheers,

- Matt
