Yes aware some events limit others including the local league here don't, can just turn up on whatever, already checked with them
Would you go two sets of 700c instead then?
TBF only 5mm in it and these are max widths not suggesting would go that big.
Probably the 40 ish knoblerleys /ice spikes.
Happy New Year all!
What did you do in snow/ice on the one set of wheels?
As this is instead of a second car I need to be able to commute year round and mostly off road so to start with at least the main concern is what to if/when snow /ice/frost forms on the ungritted cycle paths.
My plan is one bike, two wheels, possibly borrow a car if really too bad but experience shows bike better in those conditions anyway
Bus don't go direction guess be two or three busses.
Building a The Hydra on Hope Pro4 hub, front only as I got the rear from a pro-builder. Standard stuff, 3x with Sapim Race and brass nipples. 32H. Wondering how tight the disc side spokes should be. Currently around 105kgf, pretty much uniform. Not sure if I tighten them a bit more or if it is just fine. Rear wheel is tight as hell, 125kgf, pretty uniform.
Builder used some nipple washers for the rear wheel, so I've also used in the front wheel (PITA to build those since I got 2 or 3 washers inside the rim and it was a nightmare to take them out).
I see. I will check but probably the non-disc side is about 60 on average. To be on the safe side I will increase disc side to 115, and thats it.
For me the most difficult part of wheelbuilding is knowing when to stop tightening those spokes! I guess experience helps a lot here.
Probably my readings are within +-5% of the true value.
I'd be happy if mine were within 15% of the correct value and I use a DT Tensio...
