Fruit cage

A few hours on a warm Sunday.

I started with only a vague plan and 20 lengths of timber. 2.1m x 50mm x 25mm.

The side netting is held on by cable ties and the roof is pulled taught with plastic 'S' hooks.

Merida One-Twenty 7.800 suspension bearings

I hunted all over the internet to find out the sizes of the pivot bearings in the frame on Shelley's bike. I did not have any luck finding any details for the 2015 model year.

The only solution was to take the bike apart and measure them.

Although I double checked and took measurements, if you look very closely at the seals, they include a part number.

Handlebar stabiliser

I've been looking for an easy to use handlebar stabiliser for use with the bike repair stand.

The one that looked like it would do the job is the Park Tools HBH-2. Unfortunately, in use with mountain bikes, it has a tendency to allow the bars to move too easily.

I used some elasticated shoe laces to make a small improvement.
