    Thanks for that! I've also been warned off Mavic rims, though I have yet to hear any specific criticisms; more like, "they're weak, they fail, etc." without any explanation. But perhaps there's...

    The Cross Check can take either a 130 or a 135, so it doesn't really matter. Currently it's 135, since the hubs are MTB.

    Any Experience with BWW Wheels?

    Hi all, I'm considering upgrading the stock wheels on my Surly Cross Check (Alex DA16s with Deore hubs). I'm looking for something durable and, if possible, slightly lighter and more road-oriented...
  5. Mixing Shimano Road Shifters & Derailleurs

    Hi all, I apologize for what is, I suspect, a question that's been answered elsewhere. For all my searching, I can't seem to find the relevant thread(s). Right now I have Tiagra 2x9 all through the...

    It did seem like there was a very little bit more drag than before, though nothing that was noticeable with the chain on. I guess it depends on how you define "freely." The cranks don't drop to...

    The play was there even with the washer in place. It sounds like maybe my BB shell is just a bit narrow, so maybe the spacer was necessary to resolve that. That's the only reason I can think of as to...

    No, it's the compact double. The crank bolt is actually a bit over spec at 41 ft-lbs (39 and change is supposedly the max), but there's still play. With the spacer, though, there's no play. I guess...

    You don't think having the spacer on one side vs the other will wear out the bearings unevenly or anything like that?

    SRAM GXP BB on Surly CrossCheck

    I've been having some trouble putting a new GXP BB on my Surly CrossCheck. Specifically, I can't seem to get rid of a small amount of play, even when the crank bolt is torqued to the max spec (plus a...

    It appears to me that both drive and non-drive side cranks are supported by the rotating sleeve inside the cups/bearings. Does that answer your question?

    Yeah, I'm starting to wonder if he was just a bit confused. I've set it up with no spacers, and have now tensioned the derailleurs/cables; everything seems to be working just fine.

    Oh well, guess...

    Right, yeah. The cranks have no play (or very, very little play--I'm letting them sit tensioned for 24 hrs to make sure) without the spacers, so I think lateral movement is not an issue. I think...
  14. SRAM Rival Cranks on 2010 Cross-Check - Need BB Spacers?

    Apologies for cross-posting:

    I've had my 2010 Surly Cross Check stripped and repainted, and I'm slowly putting it back together. When I broke it down, I noticed that the guy who'd installed my...
  15. SRAM Rival Cranks on 2010 Cross-Check - Need BB Spacers?

    Hi all, apologies for another likely dumb question, but I can't find the answer elsewhere on the boards. I may also suck at searching.

    Anyway, so I've had my 2010 Surly Cross Check stripped and...

    Haha. Interesting thought, since failure of the bars would likely result in immediate death. Your prediction would remain accurate no matter what! :)

    I understand that in general, but do you think the level of damage here is enough to cause alu bars to fail? Thanks!

    "Acceptable" Damage to Drop Bars?

    Hi all, season's greetings. I have what, I'm afraid, is not the brightest question. What amount of damage to the drops is acceptable, before you need to change the bars?

    It seems the folks at...

    The framebuilder who's doing the job said he'd charge a nominal fee to take care of it, so I believe I'll just leave things in his capable hands. Thanks, all!

    Right, we're talking about just spinning with my fingers, no cranks attached. The left side spins without trouble, as you might expect; it's just the drive-side bearing that's feeling chunky. I put...

    SRAM Rival BB -- Time to Replace?

    Greetings, all. I recently removed my cranks (2013 SRAM Rival with GXP BB), I noticed that drive side bearing doesn't seem like it wants to move freely; instead, it clicks in uniform increments, like...
