Re: Is Trump Mad?

The title is a loaded question. Trump possibly isn't mad, when he's made billions in real estate. You could say he's corrupt, conniving, dishonest, sneaky, but not mad.

Integrated Headset Bearing Seals (2 vs 1)

Some integrated headset bearings have a metal side where it fits into the head tube, like this: https://i.imgur.com/XMoockg.jpg Others have a seal on both sides: https://i.imgur.com/DN9HTGx.jpg Assuming everything else is equal, is there any difference between having one seal on one side, or two sea...

Oh yeah it's SRAM, sorry I assumed it was Shimano (24mm spindle). :oops:

Re: Gang of six-impact on Xmas

Excess deaths? It was flu season. In the US I think it was $39,000 per person or something like that, if they died from covid. Are you confusing the Medicare payment for treatment with something to do with death ? https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/medicare-hospitals-covid-patients/ https://eu.usatod...

Re: Gang of six-impact on Xmas

Well a lot finished up in wooden boxes which is a strange way of playing it safe. At the same time as deaths from other things like heart attacks and so on, magically reduced. They just put the cause down as covid and were even told to do that. There's also cash incentives involved. In the US I thi...

Re: Gang of six-impact on Xmas

Well something filled the hospital my son was working in during April. Are you saying it was something else? People playing it safe, assuming any little sniffle they have got must be coronavirus because the TV told them to worry. What's the "something", please? Coronavirus. It's the same ...

Re: BB Spacers

OldLimey it's not a dust cap, it's a preload cap. I can only find metal ones that use an allen key (which is better because the proprietary Shimano tool isn't needed then). Why it says "15Nm" I have no idea, they seem to have missed out a decimal place there :? It should probably say 1.5Nm...

Re: Gang of six-impact on Xmas

Let's just ignore it and have the usual Christmas. I certainly will be. But given that you ignore all scientific evidence that doesn’t surprise me. In this case your wilful ignorance will kill. The evidence for this virus is not based in science though. Science involves a dependent and an independe...

Re: Play in (tapered) integrated headset cartridge bearing?

I got both forks side by side. I got the steerer tubes both looking square with the A4 card underneath, then took a photo of them together. In Photoshop, I flipped one of the forks so the slant is the same way around as the other fork, then drew boxes around the slants on the crown races and put the...

Re: BB Spacers

The bike never had a cap that screws into the crank spindle. I made sure there is no play. If there was, it would affect the FD. It's meant to have one, I'd get one, but it's another thing that's overpriced for what it is and if your setup has no play that you can feel, it's probably OK. The trick ...

Re: Play in (tapered) integrated headset cartridge bearing?

You are correct in thinking that the fork in the photo has an integrated crown race and any crown race supplied with a headset shouldn't be used on top. The external bevel of your lower headset bearing is 45°, so you could try inverting the lower bearing and offering it up side by side to the fork ...

Play in (tapered) integrated headset cartridge bearing?

I have got a tapered fork that has a metal crown race fitted to it (that came with the headset) and the headset I used was the FSA Orbit No. 42 - it worked without any play in the headset. I just got a new tapered carbon fork and noticed that the top of the crown isn't flat like my last fork - this ...
