Re: Campagnolo Centaur 2002 crank arms and bottom brakets removal

Is that crank the self-extracting version? If so then just the correct size Allen key is needed to remove them.

Re: Vitus 979

Used to time trial mine but really was a fraction to big. That was the main reason for selling but found it very comfortable and would have another .

Re: Shimano cable pull

10 speed Campagnolo shifters have the same cable pull as 8 speed Shimano and work spot on.
Also have the advantage of the cables routing under the bar tape.

Re: Slippery Mountain Bike SPD shoes

I have glued strips of inner tube to the raised sections of the soles of a pair of SPD shoes. Initially fine but gradually comes off. I have tried superglue, Evostick and Shoogoo. I presume the action of scuffing and bending gradually un-sticks them. Did last a bit and re-did them a few times before...

Re: Garmin Live Track - not working

I had an issue with my Garmin/phone connection and tried the disconnect/reconnect and uninstall etc. with no luck.
As NickJP above suggests, it was clearing the cache and data in the Connect App on the phone that cured the problem.
No idea if this will help. :roll:

Re: How do you know a bike is NOT STOLEN ???

Go to the persons house. Still not a guarantee but there's a fair chance it's good. Bit of a risk if they bring it to you or meet somewhere else.

Re: Route for LEJOG

Just had a gander at your route, and what I presume is on day 1, you go through Newlyn East and Lappa valley. This was the only climb that defeated a few of us. Very steep and getting to the end of our first day. Couldn't see a good alternative get around without using main roads but I know which I ...

Re: Likely to damage crank or BB with overtightening?

A few years back I have fitted a couple of bikes with spacers to offset the cranks to stop exactly what you are experiencing. Fitted between shell and right hand BB cup. Worked a treat until I got the correct BB length. In fact I think one may still be on a bike? I'm not sure but seem to remember us...

Re: Polar H7 erratic readings

When my HR monitor (Garmin) has not indicated it has just been a bad contact with my skin. My old monitor's instructions said to wet it before use. A bit of saliva usually gets things going again.

Re: Asda Click and Collect What a Shambles.....

Daughter did a C&C at Asda without any real problems. So probably depends on which location and also time of day. Morrisons have now altered their website so you can book a delivery slot and then fill the basket. Originally you selected your items and then booked a slot. Trouble was the avaiable...

Re: Planning ahead, tent wise...

So what do you want to do camp wise ? On your own, couple or family ? Just one night and move on or long stays.? Do you want to be able to fit chairs, table as well as beds ? Stand up and If so then a something taller. I generally find it's all the other gubbins that takes the time to set-up or de-c...
