Re: Park Tools chain wear tool - changes in newer version?

I have an old(ish) Park Tools chain wear tool. It indicates 1% and .75%. The new tool indicates .75 and .5 and recommends replacing the chain at .5 for 11 speed and .75 for 10 speed.

ATACs for the win every time. I have a set of Links on the Hybrid of Doom which are flat on one side and have ATAC retention bars on the other, and ATAC XC pedals on the MTB & road bike.

Re: Parking on cycle lanes

although government doesn't seem keen to ticket it without double-yellow lines too. Enforcement is another issue though, and like the mobile phone while driving thing, it’s not good changing the rules if the existing ones aren’t going to be enforced. So we should make driving while using a phone , ...

Re: Pedal reflectors

The RR-1s I’ve come away with today were removed from a bolt-on mount with judicious use of a screwdriver to lever them out.

Re: Pedal reflectors

I think RR-1-A is the part number, but the reflector units are stamped RR-1.

Re: physical membership card

I wish organisations would stop replacing thin peel-off laminated membership cards with plastic ingots where this is not needed. National Trust and Cycling UK both did this. I just looked and I have 14 credit-card sized cards of the standard 0.76mm thickness in my bulging wallet. Funnily enough, th...

Re: Islabikes shifters?

It’s at least a third hand bike and I bet the cables have never been changed.

Can’t see an obvious oil port on the shifter (SRAM Comp 3.0)?
