Let there be light

A trip to the LBS today saw a set Light & Motion Seca 700 Race lights come home with me, I’d finally got bored with waiting for the Hope lights to arrive so bit the bullet. They’ve been charged, briefly tested in a dark house, and weather permitting will be christened on Wednesday evening.

I also fitted a slightly longer stem to the Unit to go with the H-Bars, and thanks to the summer flooding of Chain Reaction have ordered the parts to convert the Bontrager Race X-Lite wheel on the back of the 69er to 10mm RWS bolt-through which is rumoured to cure the annoying creaking.

The rest of the day was spent playing Lego Batman which is fantastic, almost as good as Lego Star Wars, and far far better than Lego Indiana Jones.

    Is the creaking because those silly sliding dropouts are twisting about?

    Apparently it’s down to the slidey dropout bits being too hard. The knurled end of the hub can’t dig into it and grip properly.

    ah! that’s good R&D isn’t it!
