Re: Old Dawes Galaxy or New Super Galaxy?

An update on the brakes....... I fitted new inner and outer cables, straddle wires, brake levers (one was damaged) and bought some Swiss Stop brake pads. I cleaned and greased the pivots. What a difference. The brakes now perform superbly. I have also fitted some wider handlebars, new inner and oute...

Re: Shimano 105 Cassette Problem

I do know yes, however I have solved the problem now. I removed the cassette again and the securing nut for the freehub. I placed the washer behind the securing nut and put everything back together. All is now fine, I'm not sure how it came to detach itself in the first place. Thanks very much for y...

Re: Shimano 105 Cassette Problem

Thanks for your replies so far, much appreciated. I have removed the cassette from the freehub and I have re-secured the free hub with the locking nut. I have replaced the cassette i'm not sure where the spacer goes though. I have tried putting the wheel back on the bike without it and the wheel wil...

Re: Shimano 105 Cassette Problem

Apologies for my lack of knowledge, having looked at the cassette again, it appears that part of the free hub has become detached from the wheel and is attached to the cassette.

Shimano 105 Cassette Problem

I have just repaired a puncture on my rear wheel and noticed that the cassette seemed to be loose on the freewheel. A nut and a washer (see pics) were loose behind the quick release. I'm not sure which order these go on in order to hold the cassette on the freewheel. I was under the impression that ...

New Chainset and Cassette for 2005 Dawes Galaxy

I have a 2005 Dawes Galaxy and want to replace the chainset, cranks, chain and cassette in preparation for JOGLE this summer. They have never been changed in 14 years. The chainset is a Shimano Deore triple (square taper bottom bracket) - 48/36/26 with 170mm cranks. The cassette is 11-32 (9 speed) I...

Re: Old Dawes Galaxy or New Super Galaxy?

Thanks again for all the advice, I will definitely be sticking with my trusty old Galaxy. I will try the recommended actions on the brakes (thanks Brucey).

Re: Old Dawes Galaxy or New Super Galaxy?

Thanks for your replies. After reading them and giving it more thought, I think the new bike will only give me disc brakes, and STI shifters (I have bar end shifters now) I have decided now to fix up my old Galaxy. On that note, it had Tektro Oryx brakes now. I've never been over impressed with them...

Old Dawes Galaxy or New Super Galaxy?

I'm riding the end to end in June this year. I already have a 2005 Dawes Galaxy. I was planning to do the end to end on this bike but it will need some money spending on it in terms of a new chainset and brakes. I have been looking at the new Super Galaxy too as an option to replace my old Galaxy. D...
