    30 inch wheels

    Would a 30 inch wheel fit a 27 inch frame? And what tyre would fit that rim? Perhaps he's just looking for a 30 - 700 C tyre, in millimetres, not inches.

    Suntour anyone?

    Suntour? I've stashed my best V GT derailleurs and other items away for future use. Gonna be classic someday. Hey - what about that Suntour 'Skitter' five speed rear derailleur? It goes back to low gear when the cable is slack or broken. Same with one of their front derailleurs, works back to...

    1/4 Inch by 30 TPI Tap Required

    Thanks fellas, for your quick response. Can't use 4 - 40 UNC, but kind of you to offer. I did consider that it could be a metric thread, but no, it's definitely 30 tpi, which would give a metric equivalent pitch of 0.846 m/m, which doesn't exist, 5 x .8 being the closest pitch. Also checked in...

    fixed gears

    Hi. I'll second the motion. Anyone care for a fixed-gear ride in Melbourne? A Sunday morning in Feb? 10 am? Meet at St. Kilda? Head southwards along the bayside path, lunch, then back? Must have minimum of one effective hand brake. Any takers?

    27 x 1 inch tyres/where do you get them?

    Here in Melbourne, 'Bikecorp' handles the 27 inch 'Vee Rubber' tyres, wholesale only. Most any bike shop would take your deposit and order some in - plus they should have some catalogues from the suppliers- you should be able to choose what you want. These tyres are a bit fat for you, but very...
