Today I did something to my bike thread...

No apologies necessary, the ring was perfectly straight, just one tooth bent. Straightened it up, and gave it a lick of a file, good as new. They are indeed the doner cranks, and well they look too

Specialized RockHopper retro (full suspension)

I've been drinking for a number of hours now, so it's possible that I'm speaking out of turn. If your refurbing this bike to not use it as a mountain bike, have you considered putting in a normal fork as opposed to a sus fork? A good example would be the early to mid '90's Rockhopper drop bar conve

Today I did something to my bike thread...

The third crank is the original. Had to apply heat to get the pedal off. I can assure you there's been no tomfoolery with the after photo :D

Cleaned and polished the new (to me) cranks. Pedals are riveted together so will take a little more work. Before https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=519124&d=1594150526 After https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=519125&d=1594150526 I need to straigh

Where can I get a hose clip / clamp with a quick release?

There's obviously an issue with the locking mechanism on that lever. I'd be looking to fix it. Are you hoping to put the quick release seat clamp in place of the black strap? If so, be aware that the quick release lever makes the clamp looser, but doesn't actually open the clamp fully to allow you

What bike related thing is in the post to you right now ...

Emailed them on Friday evening. As it turns out, I got an email about 10 minutes after I posted here to say my order had been dispatched. Are they very slow to deliver? I'm away next week, and I was hoping to have the stuff before I left

Seat post clamp was my first thought too. I'm wondering why it's necessary, though. Have the handlebars always been loose, or is it a new issue. If you could take a picture it would help. Also, perhaps request to have this thread moved to the cycling forum, you might get more specific advice, as
