    converting torque measurements

    I have a beam type torque wrench that reads in inch pounds. Spec on my cf seat post binder on a cf frame is 5Nm. Am I calculating correctly that to be about 40 inch pounds?

    I bought one of these for my daughter's ninth birthday (but the pink girl's version). It came with some shipping damage (just cosmetic paint), so Amazon discounted it down to just under $230. Has...

    Wow, $247 is the lowest I've seen. I looked at that site. It reminded me of a similar site I used once which was a pass through to who knows where - finally had to have the charges removed as the...

    No, when I said new, I just meant new as compared to the 500. I haven't upgraded my road bike computer since the Cateye wired with cadence I've had, and sometimes I just use my Garmin 305 so I can...

    anti friction paste. Was having this issue with my CR1. Was making me crazy thinking my frame was failing. Seatpost felt tight, saddle was securely clamped. My mechanic added a little FSA carbon...
  6. Garmin Edge 500 vs the new 510 - worth the price difference?

    I see new in the box 500s under $150 now, with the new 510 about twice that. From a functionality standpoint, other than the Bluetooth upload, what does the new 510 gain you? I know it has touch...

    Okay, the word gnu, but I'm not talking about an animal, it's a common phrase which uses a 3 letter word for firearm... Is this new in the forum?

    Thanks everyone. I guess step one will be checking the brake setup. The wheels I'm using are practically brand new, so I'm doubting cleaning the rims is an issue. If adjusting the setup does not...

    best way to improve braking?

    I was about to replace my bike's stock Shimano R561 brake calipers with some Shimano 5800 series brakes, but now I'm wondering if that is really necessary. The stock brakes on my Scott CR1 seem a...

    105 5800 compatibility?

    Need new brake calipers. Bike is all Ultegra 6700 except for the generic Shimano brakes. Are 105 5800 series calipers compatible with 6700 Ultegra levers?

    All things being equal, which groupset?

    Let's say you have a choice between two brand new groupsets? One is 6700 10 speed Ultegra compact, the other is 5800 11 speed 105 compact. Same bike frame, wheelset, etc. Gearing (ability to have...

    I know, that is a pretty vague question. This weekend I'll make sure to clean the rims, take off and inspect the pads, and then go from there. The headset is properly loaded. I have another front...
  18. Weird shimmy in front wheel while braking

    I was attempting to sell my trusty Trek road bike ('05 2300), and when the buyer took it for a test ride, he noted it had a weird shutter/shimmy in the front end when braking. I tried it out, and it...

    My friend's bike is a 2010 Ruby Elite. I'm not sure, but didn't 5700 come out in 2011? If her drivetrain is 5600 105, can this still work? I notice that in 2011 they took the Ruby frame and...

    A friend of mine has a Specialize Ruby road bike, with a compact crankset and 105 ten speed components. She is looking for a little more climbing oomph. I've noticed recently that several 10 speed...

    Thanks again, that will be the plan then. New H2 BB and put the Shimano R565 cranks on my tri bike. Anyone need a used compact crankset? ;-)

    Thanks for the advice. I won't be swapping the Shimano bearings, but from what I've seen lately the H2 bottom brackets can be found on the cheap. I would probably just drop the FSA crank and BB on...
  24. better crankset - FSA Gossamer compact or Shimano R565

    I have a new road bike takeoff - Shimano R565 compact. My tri bike has a 2008 FSA Gossamer mega exo compact on it. Would it be an upgrade to swap out for the Shimano, or should I just leave the FSA...

    Thanks for the advice! I'm thinking the R11s must be heavier than that though. I weighed my front wheel yesterday (with tire and tube) and it came in at 1250grams. I can move something from another...
