New MBB Part 7

Made a new shim today, circled red here, and
Sawed open the gap in the 2 stems so they don't clamp together like this when they're on the bike.

Local scenery gathered on a walk.

Old aluminium shim.

New steel shim. Its thicker, so the clamps clamp quicker on the fork tube and are less strained when they clamp.


Some progress from yesterday, I've done some work on the steerer, hopefully getting the clamp pressure up enough to stop the pedals moving relative to the steerer or the front wheel.

So I can give it a go tomorrow again.  And I have a plan B, to make a sort of frame around the clamps to keep everything straight.

Regards  Steve Nurse
