Roller saddle kit

Post  Simon C on Wed 16 Aug 2017, 4:13 pm

Well hi all
Just returned home from Daventry with the saddle kit for my roller and boy is it ever heavy, 30Kg to be precise I now understand the packaging problems mentioned by Lynn above.

If your a believer that for £586 you should get loads of bitts you could be in for a shock , if you count all the screws individually then the kit only contains 8 parts, however its one hell of a lump of engineering worth every penny.

Seeing the control modal up close and personal today has made it even harder now to resist the temptation to start on my roller build. (Note to self : - MUST finish Puffy the showman’s before starting Huffy the roller)
Simon.

Not at all and judging by Lynn's photos the pivot is going to be a hefty lump as well.
I just hope the bedroom floor can handle the weight until I give in and start assembly.
