  1. How to protect front disc brake with wheel removed?

    I carry my bike a lot on the train, which necessitates removing the front wheel, and popping the bike into a bag. All is fine, but I would like to find a neat way to protect the front disc brake....
  2. Looking for opinions of Shimano M183 MTB spd shoes

    I need some stiff spd shoes to use on long (100+) road rides. The M183 caught my eye, but I have read contrasting reviews about them (well-made, badly-made, etc). Does anyone have any foots-on (as...

    Thanks for the link to the sheldonbrown calculator!

    I came to the conclusion that for me, with 700c wheels and 32 tires, a 42 cog would give a range of gear inches very close to the 27 gears on my...

    Many thanks for these replies.

    In fact I will be using 175 cranks, as the frame was designed with 175 in mind.

    I am keen to hear more about cog sizes for 700c bikes ~ would 42/16 be suitable...
  5. Need some guidance building up a 700c Rohloff bike

    I am now the proud owner of a Rohloff-specific, EBB, 700c, disk brake (Avid BB7) custom-made 'dirt road' frame (think the attached drawing explains it better than I can).

    Many of my sojourns will...

    I did in fact try the optional straps today. Looked OK when I set off, but soon the bag was hanging down like a pair of rapper's pants.

    Do you mean the Ortlieb 'optional' straps? Could you possibly post a pic? - I can't really visualize what you are saying.

  9. Bought and downloaded a map from Garmin. Now what?

    So, I bought a map from Garmin, which had to be downloaded directly onto the device. Now what? Can I copy it from the device for safe-keeping on my computer?

    I found the process to be very...

    The History was handy. No need to worry about saving a ride, as I always knew it would be there. But, apart from the fact I would like to be able to get them back onto the 605 - are you saying it is...

    2.8 update on 605 ... ggrrhhhhhh...

    I didn't know how to back up all my data (as the 2.8 wipes it all) from my 605, so i copied the 'Garmin' folder on to my desktop. Then updated to 2.8.

    I actually prefer the Classic, not the Plus. Somehow the Plus doesn't have the capacity of the Classic. Very subtle, but I find it easier to load the Classic.

    Lube around the nut (not yours), and it should fix it. Use a lot though, as it could be anything around there causing the squeak.

    Doing just that.

    Anything else will be a false economy, as a frame + fork combination is going to ensure even more of a perfect ride.
