We're nearing the end of this bicycle-assembling saga. This time, it's the bell, the gears and all the good bits, really.

I always thought those reversible screwdrivers were a Volkswagen thing.

Pads are still badly rubbing against the discs or the bearings are terrible. Rear wheel stops immediately when James stops turning the pedal and the front wheel is not turning at all when the bike is rocking. That is an awful bicycle.

The bell is the last thing you hear, before its all over.

I remember sometimes either missing to pull the bell lever or not back enough, barely making any noise at all and you need to let your hand loose from the handle to stretch your thumb towards the bell lever which is uncomfortable. Terrible design, let alone not being loud enough.

I love your vids James! Ramble all you want I enjoy it.

Nice horizontally mounted reflector and nice vertically mounted bell whilst in the bike maintenance stand. How did they look when you removed the bike from the stand? :)

Bicycles have to be fitted with bells at the point of sale, but there is no legal requirement to keep one fitted or use them once on the road. The Highway Code merely suggests that cyclists ‘should be considerate of other road users, particularly blind and partially sighted pedestrians. Let them know you are there when necessary, for example by ringing your bell.’ Any other ‘audible warning’ - horn, rattle, duck call or the human voice - will do.

If you think this kind of bell is hopeless, just try it when it's wet. It goes from hopeless to utterly useless.

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.

It is the mark of a true nerd to appreciate the difference between a Phillips and a Japanese Industrial Standard screwdriver. Because, honestly, who else cares?

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
Earth Arrow
Earth Arrow преди 3 месеца
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.

That bell frequency is inaudible to many old people. You can ring your bell all day trying to get past them.

James the dork disc is the clear plastic one on the rear hub, the front one is a bash guard which can be very useful for mountain bikes

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.

The only place for a bell is under the saddle or under the bottom bracket.

So... The shifter for the front derailleur is on the left side, yet the brake lever for the front brakes is on the right side of the handlebar..?

Reflector goes at the back under the seat so cars can see you when coming from behind as you ride in the same traffic direction.... Does not go on the front....cmon.....you can surely see it wrong and silly on the front....

I would recommend throwing that terrible pushbike in the bin and getting hold of an actual mountainbike. P.S. strange how it has a tapered headtube but doesn't have a tapered fork.
