Re: Shimano M324 pedal prob

Sorry Sweep no link as I bought them in a bike shop in Lossiemouth (MORAY) 3yrs ago and haven't seen any since.
They're brilliant because they hang at the right angle to clip in for the recumbent trike.

Re: Shimano M324 pedal prob

I've got some "MONZA" brand M324 copies. £19.99 The have the traditional locking washer between the cone and locknut. Ball bearings inboard & out. Makes you wonder why "Shimano" didn't go down that route. Easy to service and adjust without special tools. Did have the problem ...

Re: The Disc Brake Naughty Corner Thread

You do wonder whether some of the current innovations are driven as much by the need to make current bikes obsolete as by anything else. But there again, old fuddy-duddies will always think that :lol: Like mountain bikes going 29er from 26" wheels. Starting to find getting hold of "Qualit...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

I use "Mirrycle" but I have the bar end version that's also for mountain bikes.

Re: Removing and refitting rear wheel on bike

This is the problem I've noticed with disc brakes, it makes refitting the wheel a lot more fiddly. With my ICE Qnt I lift the rear, put the wheel under hooking it through the chain then lower the trike onto the wheel lining up the disc/axle and rear derailleur. It's easier than the two wheeled recum...

Re: Pedal Standardisation

Easy.
Wear shoes & socks and take the sandals for when it warms up. :mrgreen:

For me this morning in Scotland it was easy rain gear and thermals. :roll:

Hope you enjoyed the ride.

Re: Why many rear racks no longer triangulated?

IMO
The majority of people using pannier racks aren't travelling fast enough for aerodynamic racks to make a (significant) difference.
They're more interested in load capacity and stability.

Re: Disc Brake Rotor Torque Ratings?

I don't worry about it. The bolts have blue threadlocker (medium strength) on them and mine have never come loose since I started using disc brakes. P.S. I do understand where you're coming from though. Surely they "should" all be the same torque, they are after all doing the same job in b...

Re: Chain Size 9/10/11

Thank you both for that.
Brucey, I didn't realise that the size was the internal dimension.
If they've got the same internal dimension, Why are the chainrings different?
I can understand the cassette being thinner & closer spaced (otherwise the wheel would get wider), but not the chainrings.
