Does a Giant OD2 fork fit the older TCR frames that came with OD?

Hi. I picked up a 10 year old Giant TCR Advanced recently. I love how it rides, but I'd like to replace the fork as I have no knowledge of its past. My bike has the OD headset which I believe is 1 1/4" - 1 1/8". I can't find an OD fork, but there are plenty of OD2 (current model) forks ava...

Re: 10-sp 'road' & 'mtn' cassettes the same fit?

Yes, totally agree. I 'like' (inappropriate word) climbing hills so a big cassette is a must for me. Combine that with a long cage RD and a bit more chain and the weight adds up. Thanks to you and others on here that offered advice, I've gone the 10-sp cassette, 9-sp RD route. Currently running a 36...

What about the top-end ones...XTR or XX (Sram). No difference in how they operate? I can't think of anything but wanted to check before buying....used of course, I ain't made of money!

Re: 10-sp 'road' & 'mtn' cassettes the same fit?

I also use a 9-sp RD with a 10-sp cassette.....thanks to advice on here a while back. Just wondering whether MTB & Road cassette are the same dimensions. Seems like some 'MTB' 32 & 36 cassettes are actually lighter than their 'road' equivalents.....considerably so in some cases. I'm not a we...

10-sp 'road' & 'mtn' cassettes the same fit?

Is a 10-speed 'mountain bike' cassette (Shimano Deore XT M771 - 10 Speed Mountain Bike Cassette - 11-32t ) the same as one sold as a 'road' cassette...i.e. Tiagra 11-32? Are they the same dimensionally?

That's the problem with Northwave....no one stocks them....unless you live near Bristol apparently.

Re: Has anyone bought wide shoes recently?

Shimano 'wide' are definitely not wide....and Sidi 'wide's might be 4mm wider than their regular offerings, but those are incredibly narrow to start with. I'm on my 4th or 5th set of Tahoes, purchased when they come up in my size, on the cheap from fleabay. As they're always 2nd hand, they are usual...

Re: Driveside Hollowtech11 chainset spacer/washer/seal?

Yes, that looks like the culprit.

I have the same part on a Tiagra 10sp, Ultegra 10sp, and 105 11sp. All doubles.......W T F? Excuse my French.....the blaspheming scoundrels.

Re: Driveside Hollowtech11 chainset spacer/washer/seal?

Returned to my bike this weekend.......here is the part I'm looking for as this one is not in the best of health.

Like I said, not easy to describe so I pulled the chainset.

Re: Driveside Hollowtech11 chainset spacer/washer/seal?

Yes, I looked at that. It doesn't look the same as the part I need.....but maybe it will do anyway.
