  • After watching these videos I can safely say I would not let James build a bike for me.

  • Clamping the down tube will cause interference with the gear cable for the front derailleur . I always clamp the seat pole so nothings in the way , also means the bike is lower and easier to work on

  • In defence of the bell, as a hiker, I wish more cyclists had them and used them, rather than suddenly appearing next to me squeezing past at breakneck speed on a narrow path.

  • No bell for me. I have a whistle on a cord around my neck. Effective. My son and I cycle and friends bike on jungle tracks. We al have a whistle so if we lose each other or we get lost we can whistle for help. Is it okay to use a whistle for biking in England?

  • The front reflector is the wrong way and the brake pads are touching the discs when the brake levers aren't even being pulled. Very poor bike building here

    Tom DrumsTom Drums21 degi síðan síðan
  • brakes are set up appallingly unless you're trying for resistance training , you got your greasy fingers all over the front rotor on install so probably contaminated the fornt pads and the front reflector is on sideways, if you want to set up a bike properly watch anyone else do

  • Hmm, nothing ahs ever happened on the Archers? I remember in 1987 Lizzie Pargeter bunked off a job reporting on a fete and missed the exploding marrow. Becasue of this she got into trouble at the Borsetshire Echo because she wrote up a generic piece and missed the big news, the exploding marrow. That was a highlight and quite thrilling. I would agree that nothing happened before and and after that.

  • I've been riding, fixing, and building bikes for decades. I only recently learned that British bikes have their brake levers reversed. But are you also telling me that at your right hand you have the front brake and rear shifter? Madness.

  • Fix the bike clamp to the seat post, rather than the seat tube. Especially for higher-end bikes that have tapered steel, carbon, titanium tubing; you may damage the frame.

  • Also fun fact, you actually need a JIS screwdriver for working on bikes as all Shimano derailleurs use JIS screws for the limit adjustment. Using Phillips massively increases the chance of stripping the bolt.

  • I have one of those higher end Shimano shifters. 4 gears if I push all the way. But my ferrule is cracked and to change it I need to remove the end cap . Which seems like a real hassle so I've not done it yet and therefore my shifting is a little off.
