Re: Gravel Bikes Advice Required

I also suffer from the perennial insufficient setback problem. I was riding with a Humpert Ergotec seatpost with 50mm layback which was working well. Unfortunately that bike was stolen a few weeks ago. I've just ordered a replacement for my current second best bike (£49 plus delivery). https://www.b...

Barclays

Any one else finding their advert where a plonker enters what appears to be an 8 digit number to retrieve a 4 digit PIN ever so slightly annoying.

Re: Shimano Hollowtech 2 triple 3mm spacer

If you buy just the spacer it won't come with the relevant washer. I strongly suggest you look at the Shimano technical doc for your 6603 chainset to check you have the correct bits assembled in the correct order

Re: Shimano Hollowtech 2 triple 3mm spacer

£3.99 from an online retailer near you. But beware. If setup correctly the washer has a separate rubber seal on the side that goes against the bearing cover. You might find this washer fitted incorrectly to the lh crank.

Re: Dented frame repair

Such embellishments are part of the customisation process. Repair the paintwork and admire the new 'feature'.

Re: Best first bike under £1000

Buy a cheap cheap second hand bike. When you've been cycling for a few months you will know better what you are looking for.

Re: B&M Ixon IQ Premium 80lux

If you're having a problem with them, freeflow, then I suggest either it hasn't been fitted correctly or yours is faulty. The way in which the light wobbles even when correctly mounted is unsettling. After the escape which broke the closing latch I bought a second mount from B&M. The latching k...

Re: B&M Ixon IQ Premium 80lux

The mount is an atrocious piece of design. The lamp wobbles mightily on all but the smoothest surfaces. On occasion the lamp takes off if it's own accord. Mine is now held together with zip ties.

That's 16.85 inches long Which means it fits in a rack pack quite easily although mine is now permanantly strapped to the bike.
