Re: Dynamos - Hub or Bottle?

B&M do an all weather wire roller for their bottle dynamos: https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/dynamos/busch-muller-dymotec-all-weather-roller-cap-wire-brush-type/ If you use this roller make sure your tyre has the dynamo track on it, otherwise it'll chew into your tyre (DAMHIKT). After it happened I ...

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

Nice one Elaine. Glad it worked out for you. The double shift of the lever to get the chain to move from one chainring to another is something I do all the time (although on my Chorus rigged bike it's so super-smooth, it feels like it's one swift movement) and didn't think about mentioning it to you...

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

It's 32mm, so should work with a 31.8. Anyone prepared to correct me?
I thought £10+ £2.50 postage?

Re: Help with Campag triple compatibility.

I have a Campag Champ Triple if you're interested. Early 2000s (don't know the exact year). 32 mm, but have clamp if you have narrower tube. I was using it on a Spa chainset (46/34/24). Worked flawlessly with Centaur 10s (ultrashift) levers. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48085594087_3856463594...

Re: How to get a customised 10-sp Shimano cassette

My favourite customised 9s cassette is a 13-30. I use a 12-27, remove the 12/13 sprokets
and add a 13t 1st spocket and a 30t 9th sproket. So the combination changes from:

12/13/14/15/17/19/21/24/27 to
13/14/15/17/19/21/24/27/30

Re: Shimano MT20 size 45

I've found Shimano shoes to be too narrow, even their wide versions, so I keep away from that brand for footwear.

Re: ADVICE -What Bike!! - Getting back into road bike after several years off !

Hi All Anyone recommend what to go far, i'm REALLY undecided on this.... What are the pro's/con's? Cheers Test ride them, note all of the pros and cons and then go for the one you like the best. Only then will you be able to make an informed decision. Don't allow others to make your choice for you.

Re: what new brakes and gear shifters for change to butterfly bars

I'm tempted to sell my the Campag Centaur ergo levers on one of my bikes (along with the front and
rear mechs)
and install a Kelly's Take-Off and Shimano Dura Ace levers (with appropriate mechs).
I reckon net cost (after selling the Campag equipment) >£200

Re: Titanium seatpost that is all titanium

I have a Chinese one that I think is all Ti. The clamp most certainly is very very tough, so not a cheaply alloy. Bolts were Ti and crap. Thanks, do you have a name for it or a link? Try xacd.com . I have a titanium frame from them, purchased in 2005. Still in good nick. They do titanium seat posts...
