    For what it's worth, I wanted to inform those possibly interested in how the story ends: I bought the aluminium adapters from the photo above, the type in the upper half. I've been riding that bike...
  2. Shimano rollerbrake grease - alternatives?

    Hey my dear knowledgeable fellow board members,


    several years ago I built a rear wheel around a shimano hub that interlocks with the Shimano rollerbrakes. I've been super-happy with it until a...

    I have what Sheldon Brown would call a British ISO BB - the most common type, that is. I am seriously considering that German doohickey.

    The issue I have (I think I mentioned it in my opening post?) is that the chainline is more towards the hub, so shims like that would be counterproductive - they move the pulley(s) away from my...

    Yes, that sounds like a great idea in principle. And it was one of the first things I tried. It was a long cage derailleur. There was some issue, but I don't remember anymore. Currently I have a flu...

    I have a cheap Chinese replica of the DMR STS (at least it looks like it), and the main problem was the chainline. Close, but not enough. Still, if you can snap a photo of your bike's rear dropout...

    SS chain tensioner FOR COGS > 18T?

    I have a nice bike with vertical dropouts, which I drove SS using an eccentric hub wheel. I want to be able to use ANY rear wheel on that bike, though, in particular wheel with some kind of drum...

    Lots of good stuff in this post, thank you.
    Just two quick remarks: the nut that came with my Schwalbe inner tube doesn't work that well with my deep-ish double walled rim.

    Okay, I think I'll add two more layers of inner tube.

    Interesting idea. How wide and thick would that "washer" need to be? Could one make it from an inner tire?

    Many thanks! Indeed this rim is doublewalled. And I did realize, with one look at the rim, what you meant by rim-side and tube-side :/ but then you already wrote your answer confirming it.

    I see...
  14. Can you tell me more about these grommets?...

    Can you tell me more about these grommets? Specifically, what do you mean by "hub side of the rim"?


    Thanks - I always blunt/chamfer the edge of the valve hole. I do like a rather high pressure...
  15. A bit of a Presta virgin here - how will it work with Schrader/Dunlop-drilled rim?

    I have a 29-er bike with Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pro winter tires - the best, if you ask me. Problem is, the inner tires really do need to be suitable for such large tires, otherwise, apparently, they...

    It would help if we could see just how bent is that rim.

    That said, if you set your mind on replacing the rim, you should also replace the spokes, even if they look OK.

    Great, thanks a lot! But... that doesn't look like 700Cx20. Actually, 700Cx20 are usually sew-ups. What is the width of the tire, exactly? Did you mean 2" ?

    Taiwanese bike frames are excellent. And by "bike" I mean both bicycle and motorbike.

    But I am now looking for mainland Chinese (PRC) bikepart webshops.

    That's actually quite interesting. What size tube/tire did you ride? How exactly is the knot positioned? Tell us more.

    This is all the more interesting because it's a snakebite puncture - i.e....
