    Ticking from BB

    I have a bike with Shimano 105 5600-series external BB and triple crank. Bike is Trek and the crank and BB are original.

    If I'm pedaling hard there will be a tick when the cranks are...

    If it's 2x9, then only a 9 speed chain will work. If it's 3x6, then get an 8 speed chain - 5/6/7/8 speed use the same chain.

    Shimano, SRAM, or KMC chains are probably the most common. Personally...

    That would certainly be nice. I don't often use the 11 or probably even the 12 tooth cogs and I'll probably never use the 48 tooth chainring either. Much of the cassette is riveted together. The...

    Went to LBS and and they happened to be clearing out used/take-offs bits and got a Truvativ 26/36/48 square taper crank for $20. Got a used SRAM 11-32 cassette for $10 too.

    As for the bottom...

    It's staying as a triple though I honestly don't really need the 48 chainring.

    I plan to use 700x35 if they fit, otherwise 700x32. Fairly typical hybrid setup.

    Both the Alivio and Deore come in 26/36/48 so no problems there. Also Shimano's site lists the Deore crank as steel for the small and middle rings and aluminum for the big ring. Does both Deore and...
  8. Crankset Alivio sq taper or Deore external BB?

    I am looking for a new crankset and BB and thinking of going with an Alivio M430 with UN55 or UN54 or IRD bottom bracket that will total about $80; or Deore M590 with the included external bottom...

    Use a glove, ankle band, or toe strap to hold the lever shut? Rubber bands work too.

    The only way I can even think of doing this is to put the fender stays in between the rack and frame; or getting a 1.5" long M5 bolt, putting two nuts on the bolt so that they lock in place and then...

    I have disc brakes so the my rack is the kind that has a 1" spacer built into the end of the legs. Also easier to not mess with the rack when I go to take the fenders off at the end of the wet...

    I like those P Long boards.... Looks like 50mm should definitely work. The Planet Bike Cascadia 29 I won't have clearance for. I run 42mm tires, but I have a hybrid. I know I can fit 50mm Big...
  15. Fenders for 700x42 - are SKS Bluemel my only choice?

    I want fenders for my bike with 700x42 tires, but so far the only ones I've found that might fit are SKS Bluemels in 53mm size. Any other options out there I should consider? Most of the fenders...

    Am I using the word preload incorrectly? When I set the cones and locknut, there is still play in it before I insert it into the fork.

    Are the parts there for sale? I saw drawers, boxes, and crates full of parts there, but didn't know if they were free or for sale. I also saw people digging around in them but wasn't really sure...

    Yes, train tracks are typically polished smooth where the wheel rolls, though other portions are a darker brown color - I roll over several sets of recessed tracks daily.

    Now as for my hub...

    Weight, to some extent, does matter if it involves carrying the bike up and down stairs when an apartment or subway train is involved. But add racks, panniers, etc maybe not so much. My 25 pound...

    I am not sure what you mean. Erosion meaning by contaminants grinding against this or corrosion and then the balls scrubbing the rust away?

    To be honest, this isn't something I knew to check for aside from setting the cone adjustment correctly. I guess i will now. The only thing that tipped me off was that the front wheel would...

    The Source 11 came out in 2013 or 2012 and at the time, the Alfine 11 hub alone is around $600 and the front generator hub is around $300-400; so that is part of it.

    This is the best I can do with my point and shoot camera. Does it help? I don't have anything better.
