\*sigh*
i remember back when I had a full set of red chainring bolts.
broke my last one about 2 months ago :angry:

dont overtighten them Vert.


I made them loose now :0


On an SS don't make them loose, as you risk losing ring bolts and if you do that you wind up with a badly bent sprocket from the torque or hillclimbing (and if you are really lucky a 3 hour plus walk home from the middle of no-where)


should I use locktight? I know what you mean by loosing bolts as I have done this on my last SS

You shouldn't need to, if your bolts are torqued correctly, but it mightn't hurt if you find that you regularly loose them

upgrades!!! haven't been on a ride yet with them, will do tomorrow, the next on the to do list is to get some normal brake levers instead of the silly dual controls

the surly chainrings looks sooo shiny :love:

I've also changed the ration to a 32:16 with a 17t laying around for those bigger hills

Good choosing on the surly ring, they shiny and look like they should last forever.

Gone back to a normal gear ah, your chicken legs couldn't handle the big gear you had on before?

(no seriously 32:16 much more sensible than the gear you had before.)

Weight do not know.


Cranks, the cranks them selfs you can really use your own personal preference, but bear in mind that with a SS the torque loading in the cranks will be greater when climbing. What you will have to do is change the ring to a non ramped and pinned chain ring, it will have to be a SS specific ring. I run a Middleburn RS8 crank with their UNO chain ring.


Very nice. :thumbsup:

Yes I know the extracting nut is mangled but that was the prevouse owner.
