>Missin’ Linx

>The final part of the singlespeed jigsaw arrived this morning; a cheap – and hopefully cheerful – KMC chain which will be fitted this weekend to my new ride. The only original components left on the bike are the frame, crankset, handlebars and stem. The build has been fairly straightforward so far – the biggest hiccup being thieving ratbags at our Royal Mail depot a pair of new brake calipers being delayed in the post. Test flight to follow – no doubt it’ll ride like a garden gate fitted with pramwheels.
