Re: Advice for a Bike mod noobie - Mech Mtb Disc brakes & bull horn bars on a SS

Id it helps we've used Tektro RL and TL series levers with Hayes and TRP HY RD calipers without any problems.

Re: Bullbars.....(Show us yours?)

Old style Tiagra levers with cables coming out of the side - ideal for bullhorn bars. Image

Re: 6 speed 14-47 tooth sprockets

Sjs do a 13-32 freewheel. The 13t would enable you to reduce your chainring size to maybe 36t nearly maintaining your high gear, but reducing your low gear quite a bit. A 36t ring will depend on your bcd though.

Re: 6 speed 14-47 tooth sprockets

It might be easier to reduce the chainring size?

Re: Flush / recessed chainring bolts

Thanks for all the replies. One thing I have done which improves things is fit the inner ring the correct way. They are not symmetrical!

Re: Flush / recessed chainring bolts

I've now realised that the only way is s recessed chainring. It's so obvious I feel stupid.

Re: Flush / recessed chainring bolts

Sorry if I have mislead you, but that is not my chainset. It is merely an example of the sort bolts / nuts that would work for my application. I will post a picture.
I thought buying bolts / nuts would be cheaper than a new chainring!!!???

Re: Flush / recessed chainring bolts

A chainring bolt / nut like this would be great. I can't find out what brand this is?

Re: Flush / recessed chainring bolts

Thank for your replies. I'll try a description but will add a picture when I am back home. The chainset I have built is as follows, hopefully you can picture it? :) : - SRAM Rival 22 crank arms (from compact 34/50 chainset - had 5 arm 110bcd spider) - SRAM 2x10 64/104bcd spider (modified to accept c...

Flush / recessed chainring bolts

I am using an outer chainring from a triple chainset on a double chainset. I have gone from a double ring length chainring bolt to single ring bolt. It fits and works fine with the exception that the chain catches on the chainring bolt nut. This only happens when on the inner chainring and using the...

Re: Internal Cable Routing - Shifting Problems

Test ride today - still not happy with all the shifts whilst on the big ring. In short the cables were twisted in the down tube. Rear shifting fine on big ring and small ring with front mech cable slack. Re-routed front mech cable now all is good :) I'm a trendy consumer. Just look at my D5803 using...

Re: Internal Cable Routing - Shifting Problems

Just a quick update.... I've fit a SRAM rival right shifter. Rear indexing is now spot on. Tick in the box for SRAM me thinks!

Re: Wheel Build

Thanks everyone for your advice. My ideas seem to be ok, but I will checkout the Velocity S23 rims. It's a shame there is little choice of thru axle hubs for road bikes. :)

Re: Wheel Build

I now have a few ideas for rims and number of spokes. I also appreciate the advice on the hubs but finding sub £100 for the pair thru axle hubs is rather difficult - any suggestions?
