The Freespoke database on the kstoerz.com website does list a fair number of rims and their published ERD's. Of course, even if you happen to find a rim you'd be happy with, the actual ERD of a rim...

I'll leave the specifics about part numbers, etc., for more knowledgeable people to respond to but I think you're facing some challenges in combining brifters and mountain components. It's probably...

My 2009 Fuji Tourer had a tendency for rear wheel slippage unless I tightened the snot out of the skewer. I dealt with it for years until I finally tried a Surly Hurdy Gurdy which turned out to be a...

That appears to be a square taper BB. Here in the states we can get either a Shimano UN26 or UN55 in 68X113. Should be the same over there.

It's a bit hard to tell but is it possible that the cable routing is wrong? It looks like there may be a leverage tab at the top of the derailleur that the cable is not going over. I'm not sure...

I had a similar problem with some older Dura ace barcons and, after getting things as clean as possible, used a small amount of silicon adhesive. It seems to be holding well after about one year.

Sun CR-18 refers to the rim not the wheelset. If laced to hubs that have a 8-9 speed freehub they'll work with 10 speed as well. Even a 7-speed cassette will work provided you include a spacer. ...

I see no reason why the Troll fork wouldn't work just fine. I have that same fork on a Nashbar aluminum mountain frame where I use trekking bars and it rides very nicely. The Nashbar...
