Re: Bag to be used with Scott Sub10... help !

I have a Scott Sub 10 fitted with a Scott rear urban 700c rack. I need a trunk bag to fit this rack and can’t find one. I have asked Scott but their response was very unhelpful. Due to an shoulder arthroscopy operation I can’t use a backpack. The 700c is oddly shaped. Does anyone have any ideas or ...

Re: mid-weight tourer rims

I’ve built wheels using all 3 - tk 540, lx 17 and zac 19, of those 3 I have only personally done long loaded tours using the zac 19 and lx 17, both performed faultlessly until worn out, no cracks or premature failures, they are fit for purpose low cost rims. The tk540 is wider than the lx 17 and pr...

Re: What is a Gravel Bike?

The second machine seems to have less wheel clearance, any other differences? Different prices? No same bike Brynporth..I suppose I was being grumpy and pointing out that in the early 1990s it was possible to buy a lightweight, fully rigid, bike suited to cross country riding on unsurfaced tracs th...

Re: mid-weight tourer rims

Thanks for further comments. Sounds like LX17 "like for like" is the way to go. I've done a hub-swap before on a wheel, so a rim-swap is do-able. Yes, I run Presta valves, so need to check the hole diameter. My existing LX17's are Presta. If they do come as Schrader sized, then I can make...

Shimano centrelock dust caps ...

But are those dustcaps available to purchase anywhere? I have a couple of unused ones lurking if you need some. Thanks for the offer, but it was just a question of idle curiosity because I'd tried to locate a similar item for a Acera X hub and didn't find any availability. Out of interest where did...
