WTD: road-side assistance
#1
holla...

fellow member burnsy has adopted an old 80's road bike for a hack project.

it's the same as this I'm told:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Peugeot-Racing-Bike_W0QQitemZ150414297693QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Bikes_GL?hash=item2305640a5d">http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Peugeot-Racing-Bi ... 2305640a5d</a><!-- m -->

he's after general consumable parts, tyres, tubes, pads, saddle.

I'm gonna help sort the cabling with him as it's ideal to obviously required to out new cables in.

any road based help required to get this on the road as he currently needs this up and running for next to nothing.

thanking you muchly.

I have a pair of tyres he's welcome to.
Can't remember make or width right now, but they are 700c & free!

Is he keeping the drop bars or going with a flatbar?  If a flat bar I may have some levers he can use, really simple job & makes a very comfy bike!

I can confirm asda do a fair bit of cheap bike stuff. Was looking at some once but decided i'd never live down wearing the 'activity knee pads' in public. Well worth a look for cheap components though

As far as cables go everyone on here shoul be going to Halfords. Premium Gear/Brake cable sets. Teflon coated inners, PTFE lined outers, O ring sealed nipples £8.99!!!

That's XTR spec for £8.99 - no excuses!

I'll have a dig around later Ben to see what else I might have lurking in the garage.
