All Wilson frames had that 5" headtube  :daumenhoch: easy to spot when you find a decal-less frame set  ;)

Ordered two of these in steel for the front. They need machining out to fit.



35 quid. So why didn't I buy what I want for the rear? well, because they are 28 quid EACH. lol. I will get those next week.

From my museum post. I think it will be hours before I calm down.

Holy shit. Just. Holy shit  :(

I began lacing the wheel five hours ago. What a SERIOUS pain in the dick these wheels are to build :(

Firstly - the spokes. They are short, and a bastard to bend. Then, the orange nipples. They are longer than the ones supplied with the spokes, and a good 2mm of them is not threaded. So I am doing them up 2-3 turns and then as I work on the wheel they franking fall off. I then go back trying to put the spokes back, get confused and have to bail and start all over again. FIVE TIMES. Then just as I am getting somewhere someone starts bothering me on Facebook. I forget where I am at, can't figure it out, have to rip it all out again.





You know it's funny. I remember years ago when I worked at the BMX shop. A customer bought in some fat ass rims like that and my boss refused to build them.

Now I know why  :angrysoapbox:

Was it worth it? oh yeah, but dear god that must be pro level shit right there and I was dumb to have taken it on as my second lace ever.

Just agreed on a partial refund with the seller. I asked for 20% and he agreed. That's a 40 Euro refund, I'm happy with that. I didn't want to be too greedy as the rest of the bundle was a great deal. He was easy to deal with and we we're both happy with the result.
