Re: Old Centaur 'V' newer Centaur ?

As mentioned up thread I changed the top jockey wheel and there is definitely some improvement but not enough to be happy with. So will ponder on what to do next.

Re: Old Centaur 'V' newer Centaur ?

QS refers to the front mech and front shifting, not the rear. Can't remember how much play mine had, but as I had a medium cage mech, the play was quite visible at the bottom run. Maybe 5mm in/out. There's a thread on here about my issues with it, but I can't remember any key words to search for. A...

Re: Old Centaur 'V' newer Centaur ?

Thank's for the replies and inputs guys. Hampster - as far as I understand my QS shifter is one that spares are not available for and not sure it has a "G" spring . Although a stronger spring may be a cure for it. ? Thanks. Linus - Veloce seems to be the only practical option now but not h...

Old Centaur 'V' newer Centaur ?

I bought a pair of replacement new Centaur ergo's as my old ones started jumping when operated on the button. I have a Centaur 2008 rear derailleur and 2012 (?) Ultra-shift Centaur shifters. Both 10 speed. But I can't get a good sweet change on the cassette. I have read on Velotech that it is known ...

Re: Favourite local climbs

I once lived in Pilling on the Fylde, surrounded by flat. It was depressing. I believe hills should be prescribed to flatland cyclist on the NHS. Cugel My neck of the woods. We go through that area on the way out. For me the A6 is 15.1 miles away with ascent of 346 Ft. We try and vary it now and ag...

Re: Bikely - map not working

Have you looked at RideWithGPS. I don't know if you can transfer your rides to it. I use a motorbike App' that also has stopped using Google maps so now use RwGPS for all my planning. RwGPS still has the "little man" so easily can see road conditions etc. Choice of various map formats such...

Re: Favourite local climbs

A surprise descent on a ride that took in Hawes. Head south up "Fleet Moss" ? :roll: and on to Hubberholme & Kettlewell. Climb for about 3 miles (starts easy but gets tougher.) over the top and then gradual 13 mile descent following the river Wharfe down Wharfedale. With a bit more cli...

Re: Openfietsmap - map data updates

Just updated the GB map. Dated 26-3-2019. And definitely has a new road junction that has only appeared very recently. Also updated Majorca as the last time I did that was in 2016. A larger data download now but no idea why ? (Hope to test it soon :) ) I have 3 maps on my 810. 1 = INTL standard base...

Re: downloadable cycle map of France?

Does anyone know of a source for a downloadable cycle map of France? I have a Garmin Dakota and could use one. Thanks I presume that the Dakota is the same as most Garmin units.? Most of us use OSM (open street maps) See DCrainmaker for how. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2013/05/download-garmin-70580...
