it was a linked cable! All better.
Definitely the ones that come out the top..!
It's not the calipers they have great springs and work brilliantly, and the levers are without springs. Sort of hanging loose. I've tried threading the housing over the top, it helps a little, not a...
Just replaced my old mavic centre pull brakes with tektro 559s. I changed the levers to some old superbe levers.
I've also changed the housing and cables to new shimano ones. I...
I'm riding a track bike daily, about 50 miles, and ride it on the track at races.
I have been using a Brooks B17 narrow imperial for the past year and it's super comfortable.
Thanks Hillrider. I was talking more about the judgements attached to the responses, over the graphic elements. Dicks. But what else to expect from roadies. Thanks again.
Thanks for the constructive comments those of you who weighed in, and who know the product. To the other guys, what's with the attitude?
Ill use this at the track mostly and not so much on the...
hey all, just got a Canpagnolo aero seatpost. It's about 1cm short (below the limit line). If I ride and race with the post above the limit line is that a terrible awful idea or should I not care?
Awesome. I'm crystal clear. Thank you all very much.
This is helpful. They're new rims, TB14s from H Plus Sons. I'm within 2 mm of verticle true. Ill work on them slowly and find the vert true first. Thanks!!
Also do I measure for 2.0 butted section...
ive laced and tensioned my wheel, fixed lateral and am having trouble with wheel hop. 1/3 of my wheel is short, and I'm wondering if I should loosen those spokes and retrue laterally or tighten the...
Thanks! it's $500 on CL. Hoping to get it a lot cheaper and rebuild it.
This beast is listed as a 1920s track bike, and has been in a locker for 40 years. Anyone have any ideas what it might be? It has wooden rims, needs a ****load of work, but looks cool. Any idea of...
So spindle size is 113mm, which means I should buy a 111mm or 110 mm to straighten the chain line right?
Haha. I guess I'm too used to people being dickheads on this forums, esp. when posting anything to do with a non road bike. Thanks.
Really. Why is that? Or are you another ****ing troll?
It's a cartridge. I think I'll replace it when the snow ends.
Using the formula below my front is 42.5mm and the rear is 40mm. That means I need to find a spindle that's approx 4mm (2mm each side) shorter, right?
I'm using Campy 165mm Strada Cranks.
Anyone have any simple idea on how to measure for chainline? I'm on a track bike and I'm wondering what size spindle I need in a new BB. I think I've destroyed my old one this winter riding a lot...
All excellent advice, thanks so much! Will get hubs first and begin rebuild that way. Appreciate everyones input.
Out of interest, Kissena is closest to me. Why the difference there?
Building a new wheel using my old hubs. Need some help selecting spokes. I'm wondering:
. What length to buy (I think I need 290mm spokes)
. What are the best spokes for a good stiff...
Okay. Drilled a 7/64 hole and used a self tapping machine screw. Once I'd gotten it far enough in I machined the screw to desired length, put on some loctite and screwed it in. Rear plate and other...
$20 valuable for a repair? Drilling it is one thing, but I've never threaded a new hole before. Maybe I'll give it a try.
Thanks guys.. I guess that might be tough to do with my hand drill in the garage (boiler room actually, it being NYC and all...)
