Reply to Forks with brake lugs? 2/28/2018 5:13 AM

No offence taken at all. I'd just prefer a U-brake than a caliper brake. I think they feel much nicer and brake better. I will keep my eye out for some decent forks on eBay then, but may have to just shell out on some brand new ones.

And having looked last night, I have 14mm rear axle and 10mm front. What on earth is that about ha ha. The ones you listed look nice, but I am in the UK, so will need to source from over here

Tightened up the chain a little lastnight. Bought some chain stays, only to realise it already had some on. Doh!!

Going to fit my chain tensioner later so I can move the wheel back a little. Hopefully this will stop the back of my trainer clipping the rear peg

I was going to suggest it might have been an interceptor

Might be worth giving your bars a light sanding on the area the stem grips?

Cheers dude. I'm hopefully going to get to grips with it again before I show myself up in front of people ha ha
