Re: Tubeless woes

one approach that has helped me with the original problem I try to only fit tubeless tyres in the garage when I have patience to spare. First fit the tyre with a tube on the intended wheel, make sure it 'pops' properly onto the rim bed. over inflate and leave for few days, some tyres are initially a...

Re: Pressure sore?

Anecdotes shared on a forum do not equal diagnosis.
On the advice of my local pharmacist, if the problem is persistent see the doc ( I went with just the same today)

Re: Dynamo wiring under stainless steel mudguard - what glue?

I did this job with clear silicone bathroom sealant on my GB mudguards, lasted well so far and wire can't rattle in the channel either.

Campag rear derailleur 'leverage'

Does anyone know if Campag changed the leverage of the rear derailleur from 10 speed to 11Speed mechanisms - by this I mean the distance moved by the mech. for a given cable pull. I have tried to mix 11 speed ergos/11 speed cassette/10 Speed mech. and it works OK, it shifts fine but rattles in some ...

11 speed cassette

Does anyone know (or could measure for me ) the cog spacing on a Shimano 11 speed cassette?

Thanks

Re: Shimano STI cable pull - 11 speed

I think 11 speed STI shifter/11 speed road der with 10 speed cassette is a good combo to try. Investigating 11 speed STI shifter/10 speed road der with 10 speed cassette, this is even more useful because that's what I have ( except the shifter). Why do I care (except just interested in mixed system ...

Re: Shimano STI cable pull - 11 speed

Thanks all, what I have learned so far. 1. Shimano and Campag 11 speed cassettes have the same pitch, 3.85mm. 2. Shimano 11 speed cassette is wider than shimano 10 speed cassette (not quite sure how much, but enough that 11 can't replace 10). 3. Campag 11 cassette will replace shimano 10 but would r...

Re: Shimano STI cable pull - 11 speed

No I'm not saying that, I am not sure of my facts on this yet (hence question to the group). I haven't bought or measured 11 speed STIs or cassette yet - trying to work out if I could use them first. My cassette sizing comment is based on Shimano stating you can't put 11speed cassette on older hubs ...

Re: Shimano STI cable pull - 11 speed

But an 11 speed cassette is wider so doesnt fit on a 10 speed hub

Shimano STI cable pull - 11 speed

Does anyone know ( or can measure) the cable pull for the rear Shimano 11 speed road STI (RH) shifter? I am considering trying to use this with a 10 speed rear wheel - if I can work out what der/cogs might work. Only because I have lots of wheels that I can't readily adapt to 11 speed cassettes, but...
