Re: Titanium seatpost

I fitted a Ti seatpost (Kent Eriksen Sweetpost) for comfort, I do find that it helps smooth out bumps over an alloy one. It's also lighter and shouldn't corrode which is a plus.

Re: 54cm Kinesis Racelight - Shimano 105, Carbon Forks

For example, if the bottom bracket height is different, then you will get a different measurement. Once sat on the bike, the height of the saddle an...

From the floor to the top of the saddle is 95cm, to the top of the bars (next to the stem) is 92cm.

Any other questions just ask.

Re: Drilling hole in steel fork steerer

Thank you both for your replies. I'm not overly keen on drilling holes anywhere but my thoughts were similar to Meic's comments. I suppose I could try making my charger smaller so it fits inside the steerer and then I would only be drilling a hole in the top cap.

Cheers

Drilling hole in steel fork steerer

Hi All, I'm looking at installing a usb charger to connect to my dynamo. I've made one that fits inside my stem and thought it would be neat if it was kept in there with the cables from the dynamo coming up the steerer and the usb cable coming out the top. All it needs is a small (probably 5-8mm) ho...

Re: Shifters not working after tightening clamp bolt -Help!

It does not make sense, yes its bolt 10.

Perhaps something where the cables are is being clamped somehow?
