Re: Wobbly Cassette

Thanks Brucey I gave it all a good clean this afternoon. I was not sure about the large washer which had attached itself to the hub. There was some dirt in the area around the washer. I will give it all another clean before reassembly. I always hope that all this information helps someone else along...

Re: Wobbly Cassette

Hello All. Recently, during an after ride clean, I found the cassette to be rather wobbly. It is a 7 speed RSX, so pretty old, but not huge mileage. After some internet searches I decided on complete disassembly. I found the swaged head of the 10mm bolt to be partially sheared off the main bolt. a n...

Re: Electric cars - Noise (or not)

Electric cars need noise to warn that they are around. They also need to have control on their acceleration, they can be very quick. I can imagine a lot of problems with uncontrolled use in the future. In the wrong hands they will be a menace. To many they will be like playing a computer game in the...

Re: SON Delux hub feeling rough

Good afternoon all. Just discovered my Schmidt K179 (2006) hub very rough and stiff, but no play. I have details of what to do from SJSC but slightly confused about whether they will need to dismantle the wheel to send the hub off to Germany. I asked the Lady on the phone and was told it would be cl...

Re: Developers- New Housing

Just an update on the land grab: I started this last week and I am not surprised by the responses. It is clear from the information that I have, the developer is definitely trying a "land grab". The boundary is 170feet long and is not uniformly straight, and has an ancient ditch on their s...

Re: Developers- New Housing

I am not really sure what has happened to our country, it is now consumed with greed and selfishness, perhaps I am getting too old and grumpy!! :lol: It seems that many of us across the country have experience of the poor development of LEGO houses, cannot call them homes!! We have urbanisation almo...

Re: Developers- New Housing

The deeds for my property and that of my neighbour show a clear boundary as a ditch which has not altered since my place was built in 1963. They are trying to put the new boundary fence up to 1M inside my boundary!! Apparently the surveyor is using Ordinance Survey Data to determine my and the other...

Developers- New Housing

Morning All. I am sure many people are experiencing building development in their area, this is not about whether development should take place or the alleged lack of housing. This about the way developers ride rough shod over communities. I have a development just starting behind my property, the p...

Re: Shimano Acera Rear Hub

Very grateful for the replies. I have looked up the links and found the part that most looks like the one needed. However I have noticed that the rim does not have much life left in it. The bike is for a friend who will do limited mileage so I have reassembled with new bearings, just to keep it goin...

Shimano Acera Rear Hub

Good Morning All. Just stripped down a Shimano Acera FH-M290 rear hub. The Non drive side ball bearings are badly pitted and the cone has some pitting. I have some replacement ball bearings but I am having trouble locating the correct replacement cone, part number. I cannot find a date on the hub bu...

Re: Suspension Handlebar Stems

Thanks RickH The Redshift looks very much like the ITM and wonder if there is much flexibility in the adjustable stems available widely in UK. Perhaps the lack of response indicates that suspension stems were not used a great deal during their (probably) short life on the market. I would still like ...
