BSA – Aligning Damaged Dropouts, Frame and Forks

Dropout

Rear Dropout on the Drive Side had been opened up and the forks were also slightly twisted and the drop out was also opened up on one side.

We simply managed to close the gap in the dropout using extra large adjustable pliers, shielded with folded card to protect the metalwork (although to be honest at this stage there’s nothing to protect) we don’t want any gauge and scores or marks we want to file down any imperfections as we go.

The forks were easily pulled back into shape and balanced perfectly just using hand forces the forward leg was corrected and dropout closed up a touch on the one side.

Next stage, Sanding down…

BSA – Buying Parts, Cranks and Bar Tape

BSA-Cranks

Cranks chosen on price, these came in just under £20 with a reasonable ratio to work well against 16 teeth at the rear simple and silver.

Square Taper Bottom Bracket required, I’ll have to wait until I can find something short enough to assemble it, this need something in the range of 68mm X 101mm. Yikes!

 

Grips, covered with Brown! Handlebar Tape… Cost £3.56 Bargain! China Strikes again…

Cheap as chips but it’ll do the job, and work well with British Racing Green for the frame colour.

Hello Guys & Girls,

We’re sorry to have to announce neither Alex nor myself will be at Brent BMX Club,  this weekend. I’m off to Lundy Island for a few days, maybe a spot of diving, canoeing…
It’s a rare occasion I get a Holiday

It also seems weather wasn’t going to be on our side any how with rain predicted all day

We will be back in action Saturday week 27th June , with our usual support from 1-3pm on Saturday Afternoon.

Alternately for those interested a national BMX race is happening on Saturday.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I’ll see you again in a weeks time.

Site Update: Checkout Issues Resolved

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been experiencing issues with the checkout hanging (grayed out in effect) with the loading symbol, leaving you unable to complete your purchase.

We’ve resolved the issues as we believe the cause to be NextGEN removed from our back-end (WP) pun intended it’s a case that some of our images may have disappeared and we may have to relocate some of our gallery images, so a new pain emerges. The side effects of expansion continue, please bear with us whilst we figure out our options we are looking at increasing server end.-

If you find any issues or have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email.

Brazilian Girls – Good Time

Catchy little tune…

 

They’ve got quite a sound about them, sassy sounding sexy breathy vocals, creeping strings allude to more…
Check out their whole album.

 

She Makes War : Slow Puncture

With all the melancholia that the title suggests, I kinda like it.

She, equirrelling around London on a bike, gathering trinkets in her basket she rides past confused Storm Troopers and takes you on a tour of street art in East London.

A magical bicycle treasure hunt around the street art of East London…and some STORMTROOPERS.
