Re: Downtube Shifter

As an addition to this question. I've found an old Sachs Huret friction shifter in the shed. It's a band-on type though. If I take the band-on off will it be okay to attach to the frame's braze on? sometimes, but not always. There are at least four possibilities; 1) the lever is meant to mount to a...

Re: What's your average speed?

I came to cycling quite late, so initially I was pretty meticulous about noting information such as average speed on my initial rides. Up to the point where I stopped keeping records of anything other than distance travelled I was managing 16 mph as an average speed. I realised that to get any faste...

Re: Sidi shoe sizing

Sidi are pretty snug I won a set of Ergo Carbon's years ago and they are pretty tight but really good quality shoes. If ordering online I would suggest going an half or full size up from what you are using currently.

Re: New member, new hybrid bike build

Regards the saddle and handlebars I would suggest a Brooks B66s (which has integrated springs) and a set of Nitto North Road style handlebars with a frame that has a tall head tube. This should put you in the right place for sit up and beg riding. I'll leave the other stuff to the more technically m...

Re: Which bike?

Boardman used to do a very nippy looking Hybrid with skinny tyres and disc brakes and there have been various Giant Hybrids that have been very similar to a standard road race bike, I think the Fastroad is the latest. Having said that a Specialized Sirrus is reasonably lightweight with a set of 28mm...

Re: Front mech question

Is this a Ridgeback Panorama converted to a flat bar and Deore trigger shifters? 9-speed? Do you currently have a Tiagra front mech? A Hollowtech Deore chainset or square taper non-series? Yep, I've put a Nitto comfort bar on with the 9 speed deore trigger shifters. Chainset is a Shimano M431 48/36...
