  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Specialized Rockhopper Disc...

    Dudes,

    Can anyone give me an idea of a fair price for a 2007 Spec. Rockhopper Disc? Doing a clear out ahead of a house move, and not sure what to ask. Was thinking £150 with Mallet pedals and an SDG Ti saddle. Is that about fair?

    Problems are a dent in the chain stay and BB starting to creak. I took it into the Stiff workshop 3 years ago who reckon the dent is nothing to worry about and it's been fine since.
    I'll stick a new chain on before selling too.
    Otherwise in good nick.

    Seems about right. Maybe £200 on a good day. I wouldn't change a chain, it adds no value and it costs £20.

    Thanks. Think I do have to change the chain though as it's a crappy 9 speed LX which means it stretches to double its length in five minutes flat. It's pretty tricky to ride when the chain keeps falling off :/

    chuck a £15 SRAM chain on it put it up for £175 and be prepared to get knocked down to £150. If the chainstays are dented , that is the killer. To sort the creaking BB , tip it on its side , pour some oil around the bearing leave for half an hour, repeat for the other side , wipe the oil from the bearing before you swap over sides. It could be the cranks just need tightening.

    Will a SRAM chain run ok on shimano cogs?
    Otherwise eBay has the LX chains for £15 ish.

    SRAM 9spd will be fine. 8spd won't work. Your generation of Shimano BB will be a solid axle on a square taper so I'd be surprised if it was sufficiently loose to allow play. The oil tip is a good one though, it does quieten them down for a bit.

    When you say the gears are shifting, is it shifting gear of its own accord? This is uaully cable related, or a sticky shifter, not the chain. Worn chain is the chain slipping under load. In fact, I'm about this weekend, on and off. Give me a call and I'll look it over if you like.

    Nah it's chain slap related - anything more than a curb drop and there's a high chance it'll lose the chain. It's just stretched way beyond its useful life.
    I'll set the mechs up again before selling.
    Thanks for the offer dude but I'm in Harrogate don't you know, for most of the weekend.

    In Harrogate? Too posh to talk to then.:p

    I'm slumming it in Skipton when I'm not master of all I survey in sunny Armley, listening to the police helicopter overhead and the sirens zipping down from Bramley.

    (I'm only master of all I survey because I daren't open the curtains.:eek:)

    Good luck with the cassette and chainrings if the chain is that worn!
