Re: Look Keo Blade - foot coming out

I rode some 16s once (might even have been 20s). I could hardly get in or out of the pedal, and once in it was rock solid. Have you tried attaching the shoe without your foot in it to get a closer look at what's going on? Are the pedals new? Sorted it. Your suggestion made me realise the foot is re...

Re: Look Keo Blade - foot coming out

Have you adjusted the spring tensioner at the back of the pedal. Sounds as though one side needs tightening. The blades don't have that - they're fixed tension, determined by the stiffness of the blade in the pedal body. Exactly my thinking, hence the confusion. :? @RTHM, what tension do you have? ...

Look Keo Blade - foot coming out

I've got some Look Keo blade pedals and at the weekend, a couple of times out of the saddle powering up a hill my foot was suddenly released. i thought it a bit weird, and made a note to have a look at them when I got home. Obviously, I forgot. Yesterday, I went out again and it got considerably wor...

Re: Halfway through pressfit BB install - Wonky! Help!

Thanks for the prompt replies guys. I couldn't remove it, but ended up putting it in a vice with the tool in place so i could tighten it from the one side, but spread the load (sounds worse than it was!). Did the job. Hopefully haven't gone any long term damage to the BB, but once it jumped into pla...

Halfway through pressfit BB install - Wonky! Help!

I'm halfway through installing a PF30 BB into my frame. I've noticed that one side is going in slightly wonky, what can i do to remedy this? It seems to be getting wonkier as i go in. The other side is now all the way in, whereas this side is halfway there. First time i've actually done a pressfit i...

Re: Saint or Zee brakes?

got zee's on my hornet and then bought saint for the suppressor. both work the same but saints look nicer which is why I bought them :D LOL. Kind of my issue... Ha. For £45, do I just buy the top end ones, which looks shiny?? Is there any difference to the levers apart from the tool-less adjustment?

Saint or Zee brakes?

So,

I am replacing my SRAM guide's, and want to go Shimano (mineral oil and matching with the rest of the shed). I also want to stick with 4 pots.

I understand that feel wise, there really isn't much (if any difference). So are the Saint's worth the extra £45? Basically for the looks and levers.

Re: Small cassette for 11 speed shimano MTB mech?

Well he doesn't appear to be changing the mech or shifter, so while a road cassette would work it won't fit the freehub unless it's an 11speed road one which is probably his issue but he doesn't say so. An MTB cassette has to have a big enough large sprocket to overhang the end of the freehub which...

Thanks, but too late to change anything other than the cassette.

Small cassette for 11 speed shimano MTB mech?

Does anybody know if there's a compatible cassette (either 11-32 or 11-36) that's compatible with a Shimano XTR mech?

This is for a gravel bike build, and I was unaware that road cassettes don't work :(

Any help much appreciated!

I thought that at first. Replaced the chain and the same chain works fine on the new mech.

Re: Rear derailleur bent?

Can you clarify what the actual issue is, you state that it only occurs when you are in the small chainring, what is the derailleur doing, rubbing, intermittent shifts, other? Seems strange that it only occurs in one chainring if your original post is correct. On my Cervelo S5 In the small chainrin...

Re: Rear derailleur bent?

You can't assume that a new bike will have a correctly aligned hanger - I always check. I would try it as you suggest. If the cage is either out of true vertically or is twisted you should be able to see this and gently correct any deviation. TO Clarify, I have replaced the derailleur and the new o...

Re: Rear derailleur bent?

If the cage is bent enough to impact shifting it should apparent by eye. On the other hand if it shifts OK in the big ring it is presumably moving correctly implying no significant internal derangement. All this presupposes that the mech hanger is correctly aligned - which is implied as you state t...

Rear derailleur bent?

So, i've got a bent (in some way) Rear derailleur. I had a crash and moved the groupset over to a new frame. It took me a while to diagnose the problem as the issue was only apparent when I was riding in the smaller chainring. No issues with the new frame and a new derailleur was purchased on ebay a...

Re: Rear shifting issues when on the smaller chainring

Thanks for the replies, was out of signal in Suffolk at a triathlon over the past few days with no signal. I avoided the small ring (which wasn't hard on a tri course). Checked the chain and to my surprise it probably could do with changing, it's at 0.75 on the chain checker which is "should th...

Rear shifting issues when on the smaller chainring

I've recently put my old groupset (ultegra 6770 di2 10spd) and am having some issues with the rear shifting. On the big ring, everything is perfect. Indexing is spot on and it is running smooth and quietly. However, on the small ring, it's not the same story. It is a bit louder, and when I'm in the ...
