Re: is 23 mm ok on my rim? other recommendations?

The mavic rim is 24mm wide. Your tyre will be 24mm wide. So your fine just.

Mavic recommendations is about protecting the rim from damage. You dont die by having a tyre too narrow for the rim but stretched tyre are more susceptible damage and do is the rim above it.

Re: Longest burn time lights.

I have good wheels currently that I have no I intention of replacing so that rules out a dynamo. So the orginal question stands what is the long burn time front light. I build wheels for a living. I could build a set of dynamo wheels if I wanted to but I dont want to. I do alot of night riding and a...

Longest burn time lights.

What light gets burn time lights out there on about 200 lumens for the front. I still have built a dynamo whee and I am not likely too if I can avoid it. The cateye volt 1700 does 15hrs. With a spate battery I can get 30hrs. That enough for a a few days in the summer. But I'll need more for race aro...

Re: Hand built wheels.

Miche primato gubs are not speedy. Nothing wrong with cartridge bearing hubs. Your rim choice will depend on do you tubeless compatibility or not. If your tubeless only the light rim is the mavic open pro ust. For tubed and tubeless tyre compatibility the best choice is the kinlin xr22t. For a 70kg ...

Re: Broken spoke

It might be possible rebuilding wheel without interlacing the spokes might reduce the bends at the nipple. I have had this issue before and this was a solution.

Re: campagnolo experts help please

actually this freehub is meant to be the correct replacement so I wanted to try it. I will send it back and get a replacement. I thought there was something fishy with it and I will when I get chance replace the bearings in the original freehub but that will take a few extra minutes which I do not h...

Re: campagnolo experts help please

I agree it looks like the spacer is missing which rather odd. I will have to send it back and get a replacement. I have found getting the inner bearing out is rather difficult as the retaining ring is bit difficult to remove and when you do it is bend beyond reuse.

campagnolo experts help please

I have a set of chorus hubs pre 2007 on an alloy axle in need of a new freehub. Well FH-RE415 + new axle should be the parts I need so thats what I have. However the new freehub is very odd, the outer bearing is not in the same place as on the original free hub, it is buried inside the body itself. ...

Re: Cleaning cones/cups

I nuse brake cleaner and a paper towel. If the races are rusty then there is normaly wear anyway. I rarely re use balls. theyt are so cheap even for grade 10. Replace the balls re pack with grease and it will be good to go.
