My old Inbred has been locked in the shed for ages with a worn transmission. I spent a wedge of cash resurrecting the FSR earlier in the year so the funds to fix the On-One have not been available. Until now.
Using a refund from CRC due to a postal mix up and a failed helmet I was able to purchase all the bits to single speed it along with a bell for Ollie’s Rothan for 95p. I also got some short chain ring bolts from Charlie the Bikemonger for £5.60. So with a total spend of less than 7 quid I’m off and running again. I’m setting it up as a 36:18 to start off with the option to go to 36:16 if my knees can take it.
If all goes to plan it’ll be ready for the Tuesday night ride. I just hope I can get the cranks off because they were fitted by Martyn at Cookson Cycles, who has the strength of a silverback gorilla when to comes to tightening components.
I’ll see how I get on with the beard and sandals.
