New Wheels for my Mountain Bike

I have removed the FW from my mountain bike so that I can use the internal for a Sturmey Archer Course demonstration.

Today I have built two very nice wheels for the mountain bike complete with a single fixed sprocket. However when fitting the rear wheel I have found that the frame is out of track. This must have happened since the removal of the FW but I can’t imagine how.

Anyway, the damage is done and I will have to retrack the frame. As the seat tube of the ATB is a different diameter to the down tube I will need to make a jig to measure the tracking. I wonder when I will get time to do that!

Well it rides ok, so I guess I’ll swallow my pride and ride an out of track mountain bike until I can get around to repairing it.
