Re: Wobbly Cassette

Thanks brucey, going by that it looks like worn internal bearings. I've never removed them before. It looks technical , trying to avoid spending £60 on a replacement freehub on low end wheels.

Re: Wobbly Cassette

Re: Travel Insurance

Bmc won't insure usa/canada for 90 days! What's that about? Also what I ride is donkeys years old, I don't carry a solid secure gold rated d lock. My gear is worth far more. May just take health insurance only for Canada trip.

Re: Danube Cycle Route: Vienna to Belgrade

I did all of the EV6. A few years ago, it s on Crazyguyonabike. From vague memory, East of Bratislava is lacking facilities as others have said, tho I didn't mind that, riding in Serbia reminded me of UK, it's cr*p.

Re: Availability of ISO screw cannister gas propane for stoves in USA

On the Southern tier this spring never found it a problem obtaining gas. Walmart sells coleman, Dicks sells MSR also. RV parks rarely sell them.
