Re: Play in zonda rear hub

It's easy on the non drive side there is a small Allen bolt on a plastic screw on the axle. Turn the Allen screw and tighten the bearings slightly to adjust and job done, no cone spanners to mess about with.

Re: Cyclist Beware!

What they did wrong was have big knives in the car, wether they did anything with them or not. They still had them and the police would log it for future reference if nothing else.

Re: Ribble winter trainer tyre/guard clearance

I managed to squeeze 25mm conti gp4 seasons under mine by taking the mudguards off and making the brake mount hole a loop with a dremmel to give me a few extra mm of clearance

Re: Doval oval chainset

I have mine set to the centre of the range and feel it's a good alrounder set like that. Just try moving it and see what feels right

Archetype rims, record hubs, and DT Swiss spokes 32 spoke count, Finished wheels are a real improvement and should last a lifetime, I bui...

Re: Saddle problems

Lower the saddle,, in a bike fit I had mine lowered 45mm. Felt horrible at first but is ace now and the issue has gone, I'm slightly faster too. I can't believe I was so far out on the seat height, Quick test is to unclip and pedal on your heels, you should be able to do it with no issues when heigh...

Re: How long do we have to endure press fit bottom brackets?

I'm a campag user and their adaptor to use ultra torque has been awesome, my mate has BB30 and has been back 4 times in less than 1000 miles, the last time the shop used bearing lock to hold the bearing in rather than greasing the outside and it's been fine since, I know cannondale advise using thre...

Re: Taping a Frame

You can get Matt heli tape. I bought a big piece from eBay enough to do 3 bikes or so. Bargain, and great stuff. Get it put on there before you build it up

For the sake of saving £20 a year I'd much rather change the chain more and have silky smooth gear changes

Re: Whats your favourite climb?

Best thing about living near the Pennines, lots of ace climbs, U.S. northerners are spoilt rotten
Isle of sky road. Holme moss, blackstone, cragg vale. The climb out of ripponden towards the m62. Want to tick winnets off next year, liked the brickworks, and Blaze hill too.

Re: Latest Ribble Gran Fondo spec

Good point, if just took delivery of a 7005 winter addax frame, and it's changed a hell of a lot from my old one.
Totally redesigned around the rear axle area, and it now has a bolt on braze on hanger which seems a little strange.
Gonna order a hanger now

Re: Record skeleton brakes and archetype rims

All sounds very technical there.. But I understand the basics.
Basically just need the nod from people who ride the combination I want to use
Mercia man has said this works for him so I'm hoping my choice of tyre will work also.
I much prefer the gp4season tyre at the minute

Re: Record skeleton brakes and archetype rims

Yep I was running 25mm tyres with no issue, I had to swap back 23mm when I bought the new calipers as the record skeleton hugs the tyre a lot more than the old calipers. So with this in mind I know things are tight as it is. A change of shape could see my 23mm tyres rubbing again which I would be wo...
