The tall-cap tidy-up..
I was re-keying them to match another pair of caps I had anyway, so take the opportunity to clean away 25 years of grime while I'm at it. Really needs the cap body and lock re-plated, but ehh.. good enough from afar. I don't plan on running these wheels ANY time soon..
here, these are the Tall S'5/BangVec bodied version of the Electron locking caps. Shown above in original condition...
The pair, with the locking mechanism completely disassembled. I love the look of all the small parts involved..
Far from perfect, but looks so much better than it did. Importantly they now work smoothly, and with the correct key.
I've covered the assembly of the lock detail in more detail here.
