This is for the above bike.





Not only is it 22mm (check) but it is also 1-1/8 (check) and weighs half of the orange Social Bikes stem I had on it. Winner winner chicken dinner.

Stem got.



And then everything needed for the single speed. The first thing I needed was this, to rob the threaded bearing ends from.



Then a shopping spree.









Thankfully you can get the hed doctor top cap without spending another 20 quid on the assembly itself.



This will need to be taken apart. I have a hanger, so I need to separate that from the bolt and spring and lower assembly.





In red. Again red.







I bought two of these. Not because of chain slap (but that may be an issue) but because I battered the stays on my PK getting it back up after a ride. The stair wells are pretty narrow.



Then a expensive treat.





And then an 80s acidic vinegary ketchup bottle  :LolLolLolLol: It never dawned on me until after, but I thought it was funny AF so it is staying  :LolLolLolLol:



I bought the cheapest axle I could find. I don't need the axle itself, I just need the spacers. The wheel was originally 130mm but came with no axle, so I bought a Shimano one and cut down the spacers to make it fit the frame. IIRC that was 110mm, but it could be 120 IDR. Either way I need to put it back, but all I need is the spacers.



Then I got this. I didn't specifically need to, but it saves me bringing mine over from mum's and mine is a bit battered (I used it to tap a bolt and the rubber handle fell off, and now it falls off every time you use the bloody thing).



And finally, the cherry on top. Monday's Child herself.

I'm good thanks, just took a little break. Mum gave us a scare recently and she was my priority.

Jane off  :LolLolLolLol: yours will be an immaculate custom build, when I get around to mine it will be nothing of the sort  :LolLolLolLol: I'm still thinking a rider rat is the way to go for me, even with the goodies you donated. Unless you want to refinish my frame  :LolLolLolLol:

Have always liked that GT of yours! :daumenhoch:

Have just pulled the trigger on an S&M pivotal seat and some Haro Cliq race bars! Both used but in good nick and very reasonably priced. :D

Not the biggest or most exciting of purchases, but I've just bought some replacement bolts for my Profile hubs. ;D

Hmmm, interesting.... :coolsmiley:

Have just made another little purchase off eBay - a set of odi Connor Field grips. As my North American trip gets closer, I'm going to start working my way through my list of parts to buy when I'm over there. :daumenhoch:

Sadly I have to buy a new carbon post for my Pinarello. I was going to ride it this week, but the weather has been awful. Peeing driving rain and gale force winds. However.

I had issues with the bike before it was complete (it is now, I will update the thread shortly) and I discovered that the seat post had too much of the aero bit for me to be able to get my feet on the pedals with the cranks all the way down. Bugger. So I bought a new one. And other stuff, see thread....
