The deed is done

I’ve ordered a box of bits from On-One comprising a 20" 456, a Twelfty seatpost, and Bignose saddle. Hopefully it’ll all arrive in time for my birthday. All the rest of the bits will come from the Stiffee with the possible exception of the headset.

Whilst a Cotic BFe or Santa Cruz Chameleon would have been nicer, they would also have cost over twice as much, and I’m not sure how much I’ll actually ride a geared hardtail given my current preference for a fully rigid singlespeed.

    YAY! even /i/ can’t get a Chameleon as cheap as the 456.

    I ordered 7 pairs of brake pads today, and ground away about 1/4 of the new ones in the back of the chameleon, it were damp/muddy/tiring.

    Matt – STOP USING YOUR REAR BRAKE ALL OF THE TIME

    how else am I to stop, simon.

  4. Simon says:

    Most people use the front brake to stop, it’s far more effective.

    Sorry, I meant, /Slow Down/, like in corners and on naggery bits. it’s not like I actually brake that much,I just leave it late and ram them on.
