    Thanks for the feedback. I'll overhaul the brakes with Jagwire cables, metal ferules, file the cable ends and see how they perform. The pads are brand new, so I'll try breaking them in with some long...
  3. Struggling to generate braking power with new cantis

    I've recently ventured into the world of cantis and I'm beginning to wish I never had. After struggling to get decent power with some old cheap cantis I bought off eBay, I decided that the brakes...

    I'm looking to do some touring across the Netherlands in the summer, but my Kona JTS frameset doesn't have the original pannier bolts. I can't seem to find any documentation on the bike so was...

    Canti bosses too long?

    I've bought some replacement cantis (Tektro CR50) for my Kona Jake the Snake 2004 frame. When installed the spacer on the brake itself, it is just shorter than the canti boss it goes over. This means...

    Thanks, very useful link! I didn't take into account shift ratio. Turns out I'll need 7 of the cogs from an 8 speed cassette with the hubub mod on my Shimano rear mech!
  7. 9 speed Shimano cassette on 7 speed hub with Campagnolo shifters...possible?

    What a mess this bike is turning out to be!

    At the moment I'm on a very tight budget, hence the messy miss-mash. After looking at Sheldon's cassette spacing crib sheet, here, and his article on 7...

    How knowledgeable some of you are! Lo and behold when it had a tensioned cable attached everything is working nicely. Guess I should have thought of that sooner.

    Thanks anyway!

    Sorry about the confusing description. To try and clarify, it's the right hand shifter. When moving the gear lever inwards one click it actually moves two cogs worth (only for the first two clicks)....

    Veloce 9 speed shifting technique

    I bought some second hand Veloce shifters on ebay the other day and at first it only seemed as if there were 6 clicks when shifting to a larger cog (instead of 8). I then realised that the first two...

    I am considering a stainless steel option, but was more drawn to ti for some reason. It turns out the Sabbath September's 2012 model takes 28c + fenders. Won't be taking the plunge for a little...

    I've worked out the tax and duty and it comes to about 25% which really isn't great. Plus I want the peace of mind of having a local dealer for warranty/crash replacement claims.

    You'll have to forgive my ignorance, but I'm fairly clueless when it comes to cantilevers. I bought a second hand set the other day for my Kona JTS frameset and I can't work out how I would route the...

    Thanks for the suggestions. That Motobecane looks tasty. Would have to add at least another 20% on top of that for import tax to the UK, but that's still pretty tempting.

    No info?
    I found that Spa Cycles sell their own brand ti audax frameset for 750 here in the UK, which seems like a bargain. 58cm frame and fork is 2.2kg, so I'm guessing about 1.6kg for the frame....

    Titanium audax to take 28c + fenders

    Does anyone know of a ti frame that is light (~1.5kg for 58cm) and fast, but takes a rack and has clearance for 28c tyres + fenders? From what I have read the Sabbath September and the Van Nicholas...
