Hi all,

I'm Jamin from Harrogate. Came across the forum while browsing the net and seeing as I'm not very handy with the tool kit thought I'd sign up.

Trusty steeds are a Falcon Majorca (age unknown) running a mix of Shimano Tourney shifters and 105 rear derailleur. It's a 7 speed. It's also running on rather old 27" wheels but a 700c conversion is in the pipeline. Braking is courtesy of Shimano 105 calipers but they are to be replaced with a set of long reach calipers. Crankwise I'm running Sugino MP 170mm cranks with a 52/42 setup. Tbh, it's a little overgeared for me but that's going to get sorted.

My other bike is a 2013 Carrera Vanquish bought 2nd hand off fFleabay. Alloy frame and forks, Shimano Sora 18 speed drivetrain, Tektro brake calipers, compact crankset and Mavic CXP 22 wheels. Its a Halfords bike so ultimately for the £500 price tag you could get better but I didn't pay 500 for it and it's a defo upgrade on the Falcon.

Looking for help with technical queries about upgrades.
