Got an (expensive due to import duty and taxes) package from Japan today.




The pedals feel really smooth and no play at all. They are MKS's updated BM-7 NEXT with triple cartridge bearings and the pedal cap takes a 6mm allen key.
The brass crank bolt and cap are just a little bit of bling for the SilverAce.

Puchfinnland is now living in Deale Maryland 20751, he works too hard and hopefully one day will have some time to enjoy wrenching and riding his prized bikes,
In the future he will assemble a PUCH to do the C&O canal trail.

My question is what happened to my old friend Photogravity?

They're here! Just arrive in the post a few minutes go! My Campagnolo Clipless Pedals!





I'll be cleaning them up, then filing off those unsightly mold lines and then polishing them to a high luster. They'll look as good if not better than my Exage clipless pedals I did that to. Here's an image of the Exage clipless pedal after i finished with it.



Cheers

Have to give a plug for an ebayer...if he's on here, he'll know.

Ordered a pair of tri-color 6403 brake levers. Was sent a mismatch pair with one lever 6403, one like an Exage type cheaper SLR one (BR L331). Guy sent me the correct lever and the other matching cheaper lever. I asked if he wanted me to send back the Exage guys and he told me to keep him. He'll get my business again.

Now have two extras after getting a pair of Tektros in Brewsmith's Dura Ace bundle...

The bike was supposed to be a rat-rod!!! I need to stop myself!

Got scammed! Freewheel that said it was French threaded in the description comes to me and screws freely right onto a BSA/ISO hub. Further tests with thread gauges confirm it. ARGH!! <wearily opens a complaint case on Ebay>

Nothing as glamorous as those hubs... But happy making all the same. Suntour GPX calipers with the hidden springsCheap, and techie. I have another set that I've been using on a Serotta Colorado Legend with DT index shifting, running smoother than when I bought them.

Various bits and pieces for a Sturmey Archer hub + bottom bracket and chain.
Unfortunately I didn't pay attention and I ordered a 3/32 singlespeed chain instead of 1/8 size that I needed...
