Re: Superstar Wheel Choices

I've had two sets of the first ones - Arc CX-Ray 32mm (one set got stolen). 25mm tyres (tubeless and clincher) go on easily and they seem to be well enough made, can't really fault them.

Re: Show us your Supersix Evo's

Thanks everyone. I'd be having a lower stem with a 'racier' position on the bike anyway. Comparing the sizes of the different frames makes me think I should go with a 54 and slightly longer stem (12 cm).

Re: Show us your Supersix Evo's

Can any Supersix Evo owners give me some help on sizing (2016 models)?

I'm 5' 11" (180 cm) with a 33.4" inseam (85 cm).

I used to ride a PX with a 57 cm top tube and 11 cm stem which felt slightly too big.

Do I get a 54 or 56 Supersix?

What's the cheapest tubeless wheel option for winter? DT Swiss R24 at £190, any others?

Re: Handbuilt wheels... the big thread

Are you hoping that a DT Swiss end cap will fit a novatec hub. Thru axles are not essential it sound like you are building wheels before you have a bike. If you have a frame and fork for std Q/R's then why change it. That frame and fork could last you the next 10 years or more in which case the whe...

Re: Handbuilt wheels... the big thread

Does anyone have experience of the Novatec D771/772SB hubs? Building up some Pacenti SL25s and I want the option of having a 9mm front/10mm rear thru bolt (DT Swiss RT thru bolt) and I understand that the Novatec hub caps are interchangeable to allow this? http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/dt-swiss...

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Just recounted the story to guy in my local bike shop. He has the Ones' and no punctures in 3k miles of commuting so far. A rep brought in a set of the pro version for him to try. Same commute as he uses the Ones' but 2 punctures within 300 miles of use the latter more of a rip that required a smal...

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Considering 28mm Ones or Hutch Sectors - hopefully to replace my boring commuter tyres (Gatorskins) and nice day tyres (Ultremo ZX) As my riding often ends up a bit 'Sustrans', I'm a bit wary of reports that the Ones cut up a bit. Is this a problem (other than cosmetically?) The Sectors seem to be ...

Re: Going Tubeless on my Pacenti SL-23

That's it, it's not too difficult. I used tyre levers (Park Tool plastic) to mount Schwalbe Ones, just hook them over the rim and lever the last section of the tyre on.

Re: Planet X Pro Carbon Sizing

Been thinking about getting a new frame for a while, decided against it and put the new parts on my other frame (which is coming along nicely!). But now Planet X has a 15% off everything sale so was thinking of getting the Pro Carbon frameset for about £250 and moving some parts I have lying around...

Re: Lungs are fine, legs are shot - what's wrong?

Are you getting enough rest? Perhaps you're just doing too much or too many hard sessions and overtraining (or under-recovering).

Re: Pacenti SL23 owners

Oh I see what you mean, I had heard that you weren't supposed to use tyre levers in case it damages the tubeless bead or rim tape but it seemed to be okay.

Re: Pacenti SL23 owners

What tyres do you use? I have these rims built onto some R45s waiting to go on a new bike which will happen soon. Just bought some Vittoria Open Corsa SC's and they won't go on the rim. Not even close. I know all the tricks about making sure the first bead is in the well of the rim profile and to u...
