Dhb Dorica 45

Bought these on eBay for a punt. Was advised that size was out and indeed 45 is too big. I've now bought a 44 which is a cracking fit. Used once by me and half a dozen times by previous owner. Great nick with spd-sl cleats. £25ono and I'll cover the postage.

Thanks,
Robert, Worcs.

Re: Campagnolo BB Power Torque : What tools required?

What prompted all of this was creaking from the bottom bracket. Now the 14mm Allen I need arrived today and I removed the crank bolt. There should be a washer in between the bolt and axle - it was absent. Could this cause a creak?

Re: Campagnolo BB Power Torque : What tools required?

I plumped for the tools. Most of the reasoning being that the current state of life means that I could do with a project. Thank you all.

Re: Campagnolo BB Power Torque : What tools required?

Many thanks, having a shop remove it then swap over to a good quality square taper seems like a good idea. Any good suggestions out there? Stronglight seems the obvious choice, although I have a Spa own on my tourer that has been great. It is currently a Veloce 10 50/34. Thanks again. If you fancy ...

Re: Campagnolo BB Power Torque : What tools required?

Thanks. I returned to Campagnolo after years of grappling with 105 and Ultegra. Always having to adjust and wearing quickly. I may indeed ask a shop to do it, but would rather not.

Campagnolo BB Power Torque : What tools required?

People, my new secondhand bike is Campagnolo fitted, which I'm really pleased with. However the nice cyclist in Notts I got it from told me that the bottom bracket was the original and being six years old was in need of replacing. He even gave me a new one in the box. It is a power torque variety. N...

Road cleats LOOK

People, having acquired some look keo pedals I may have a try at some road shoes. Just a see how it goes, why not type of thing. I've ridden with SPD for years by the way, happily. Cleats for keo come in floats of 0, 4.5 and 9. Any thoughts on which I should plump for? Thanks, Robert. P.S. if it hel...
