Especially when town like Dunners and Invers can put a decent one together.

Last time I saw the Hamilton velo it was basiclly a tarmac car park, and as about as flat.

I rode the London Olympic velodrome..... the 40's Olympic velodrome that is, it may have been a bit cracked and beat up, but concrete can take a bit of abuse it was still pretty damn rideable. The club even had hire fixes on the shiping containers out the back to let newbies have a try. :thumbsup:

So, where is the best place in NZ to get cogs? I may have to go for a taller gearing while I am in town. Looking in the 13-15t 1/8th sort of area.

Dumb question that doesn't really deserve a new thread.

Fixed cog on freewheel thread without lockring - dumb idea?

Loctite?

Or is there a way of attaching a bigger pitched "lockring" on the outside?

Loctite an old b/b lockring on the outside of the cog, as they bare the same thread. It's not perfect but will do the job fine. :)

I always knew they'd come in handy someday. The Raleigh will also come with a front brake.

Yes, a lovely old bike. Personally, I would swap out the Brooks saddle though...

By the way, did you smear Vaseline on your lens, or do you own a smoke machine? :eh:

Here's some trivia for you. That Bob Jackson frame was modified recently with the headtube being shaved down by near 10mm to account for a fork cut too short. It's purdy though, with the red Lion coat of arms. Incredibly well preserved, and never ridden until now.
