Re: Cargo trailer, must be single wheel

I’m selling a Webber Monoporter - it’s a top quality single wheel trailer - look in the for sale section. If you are interested send a PM. I’m open to and offer and happy to negotiate via PM together :wink:

Re: Removing square taper Shimano BB

I use and old crank bolt and large washer on the axle to keep the standard tool on place. A large spanner usually provides the leverage. If really stuggling, try removing the seat post and spraying some penetrating oil down the seat tube and leave overnight.

Re: 26" disc fork?

Measured from centre mudguard bolt hole to drop out is 410 mm. Is that going to work for you?

Re: 26" disc fork?

Si, measures 240mm of steerer tube. They are in reasonable condition, have the posts for V and the mount for disc. Mudguard eyes only on these - no low rider mounts.

Edit: I re read your intitial post and the need to know the crown to drop out measurement. I'll find that out. :wink:

Re: 26" disc fork?

I'll take a look at the fork then. From memory the bike it was used on had a long head tube so you could be in luck. PM if you like.

Re: 26" disc fork?

Si, What steerer length do you need? I have a Kona P2 in the garage and could measure it up for you.

Re: How long do disc rotors last?

Changed a pair of BB5 rotors that had done approx 12,000 miles on the daily commute bike. They still worked fine but did have noticeable wear on them.

Re: Good news, bad news and a mud flap question

Double sided sticky foam tape - sort of stuff they stick car registration plates on with is good. Has a bit of flex, stick like something to a blanket and can easily be removed with a thin blade in future. Araldite is good for some stuff but would be a devil to remove in the future. Hope this helps.

Re: Surly LHT or Cross Check?

I have a LHT disc. It is a good strong touting bike, it rides well on the 26x1.25 tyres. I built it up for comfort, brooks sprung saddle, tubes cargo, marathon plus tyres. It sure is a heavy beast. But if touring ' long haul' is what you want it's great, solid reliable and bomb proof. Most of my dai...

Re: Fat Bikes

Medium, I'm up in Aberdeenshire. Happy to take photos and investigate postage. Recently sent an Airnimal Rhino to Germany. Don't mind doing a packing job.
