Re: Worth upgrading rear derailleur?

You aren't going to feel any difference with another RD. Either you have a long run of cable housing or the shifters are a bit vague. Or both. You might get a better feeling with new shifters, but new cables and outers are a cheap test first. Or do what I do and just flush the outers with wd40 befor...

Not generally, no, that's true.

It was a bit flouncy though, you have to admit.

Re: Wingnuts

I stand corrected. They actually do still make fixed axle hubs. Perhaps I can still get spares for the 3 speed bike I had as a child. Seat should still go high enough.. I believe this is for a threaded axle track hub - there was a discussion about it over on the track forum, assuming this is the sa...

Re: Wingnuts

Hi, I have a Fuji Feather fixie and want to be able to take the front wheel off quickly for transport. I am told that the wheels- Alex double wall, 32h, high-flange alloy sealed bearing hubs - are not compatible with quick release skewers. My second option is a wing nut so I don't have to carry a s...

Re: What chain lube are people using these days?

And shiny chains & cassettes are nice. Best way to keep them like that is to leave them in the garage.. Or Zwift. 5w isn't to be scoffed at, if it was real. If we added up all the wattages that have been saved, by all of the kit manufacturers who have saved them for us, we would need to chain o...

I think this is what is in Squirt, judging from the ads. Squirt is basically an emulsion that leaves behind the same thing.

Re: New alloy rim brake wheels

Because in social media world where mob justice wins (congratulations , by the way) then as a business owner it's better to be defensive and humble that a loudmouth. You can't have a mob of one. I didn't expect quite such a severe flounce I have to admit. If I didn't know better I'd imagine it wasn...

Re: Which Crankset?

I switched cranks. Entire outer shell of the Ultegra one was loose. Seems like it originated at the pedal end, in fact.

Forged crank arms for me from now on!
