    Hybrid bike to 650b conversion.

    On a whim I bought a used pair of 650b mtb disk wheels and tyres because they were so cheap. Now I have to decide what to do with them that doesn't start costing a lot of money. I have an mtb 26"...

    I'm just stripping a wheel to fit a new rim. The spokes were a real pita to loosen. Must have had some sort of adhesive on them, but I'm only going to use linseed oil when fitting the new rim.

    Thanks for all the replies. As I said in the op it's partly the weather and partly other issues that have made the general feeling of ennui that I normally experience in winter, but which hasn't...

    Early morning rides - a vicious cycle

    During the summer I love getting up early for my bike rides, before the trails/roads get busy.

    This winter it's a whole different matter. I've always suffered a bit from the SAD syndrome but this...

    A few years ago I rode a 25 mile charity ride - in reverse. I didn't know it was on and the start of my individual ride was fine, until I started to meet the hundreds of cyclists coming the other...

    I've just bought a pair as they look to be just what I'm after. I haven't fitted them yet as I need to make up some sort of adjuster block first to get the position just right for the toe-clips.

    I've really enjoyed and been given considerable food for thought by this thread. It's why I like the 50+, some different opinions, but all constructive and no name calling. I'm in the process of...

    Flat pedals with toe-clips (the strapless types). I find them extremely comfortable when set up correctly, and they keep my feet in the right position.

    I am happy to accept that that clipless do...

    Congratulations.

    My cycling has been so limited recently that I'm thinking of starting a new standard of riding one minute for each year of my age. With a bit of luck I'll get in 69 minutes this...

    I know nothing about Campag or Miche splines, but here is a picture of the freehub. All splines are the same width, apart from this slightly wider, grooved spline.

    I think that would be fine. There's no need to loosen the stem bolts very much and preload might change very minutely over many slight loosenings of the stem, but not enough to need anything other...

    Would it be possible to make a mark on the stem to match up with a mark on the head tube as an indicator of the correct position? I would imagine most bars are one or two degrees out of true most of...

    How long does it take to loosen two hex bolts after a ride and tighten them the next day? I wouldn't have thought it was a great problem, unless it's a carbon steerer/stem and you need a torque...

    This looks like a botched attempt to try out a tandem. It looks as if both "halves" of the bike have front and rear derailleurs and both have a rear brake!

    Home-made 3-wheel tandem?

    This bike has come up locally for sale. I've never seen a three wheel tandem before and it looks a little bit awkward to ride safely to me.

    Caring for elderly parents

    This must be an issue that resonates with many 50+ers.

    2015 was a terrible year for cycling for me due to injuries and their long term impact, but I was hoping that 2016 would be a lot better.
