Re: This will revolutionise shifting... or not...

Cog Hog did it first (and was moderately effective with Gripshift) Cog Hog's slao worked well with v-brakes removing the noodle, better used on the rear to reduce the profile of the brake if heels wewre catching on the brake outer. IIRC you had to file the cog hog down a little for it to fit in the...

Most people get their new bike from their LBS, not Josh. He went direct to the factory in China and rode it home :shock:

Re: Cartridge bearing tools (primarily for Hope Pro4 hubs)

When the bearings went in my Hope hub I bought a bearing kit and let the LBS change the bearings, they only needed to do the hub bearings as the freehub was a newer steel freehub and the bearings were fine, from memory they charged me an hours labour around £20 which is much cheaper then me buying t...

Re: NDC41 In BS11, Bristol

Personally I go left, Kings Weston Lane, right Merebank and right at r...

Re: Liège-Bastogne-Liège. 2020

Suprised there's no mention of the Ladies LBL with Lizzie Diegnan taking the top step on the podium and Hannah Barnes coming in 6th.

NDC41 In BS11, Bristol

This might also be of note in the LEJoG board too. NCN41 in Lawrence Weston is diverted currently, this has been ongoing for the last few months with a shorter diversion along SaltMarsh Drive starting where the 'city farm is located then meeting up with the original route further along SaltMarsh Dri...

Re: Switching to hydraulic from mechanical disks

My day to day set-up is R7020 and M7000 callipers with BH90 hoses with no issues in the time I've been running that set-up. If no olive and insert is supplied then you can maybe cut them and reuse them, the insert should be recoverable from the hose if you cut it up, but perhaps the olive is deforme...

Re: Changing hoods on Tektro RL 340/341?

I wore the hoods out on Tektro levers and replaced them once I sourced some hoods. The old hoods came off very easily with the use of a sharp knife :lol: The old ones went on over the lever blade with the help of some GT85 though I later learned hand sanitiser works better as it will lubricate the r...

Re: Pedals

Ive been on 2 bolt SPD shoes/pedals since 1991 with many bikes, MTB and road. As I started with MTBs then moved onto road bikes I kept the shjoes/pedals as I couldn't justify having shoes for only one bike.
