Tiagra 9 speed triple front derailleur smallest chainrings?

Current set up (approx 10 year old) Tiagra 9 speed triple STi levers/brifters, triple band on front mech, 50/40/30 Tiagra chainset. Has anyone successfully changed a to smaller ringed triple chainset? Is the Tiagra FD likely to work ( keeping the Tiagra STi levers ) for example on a Spa Cycles XD2 4...

Re: How to calculate metres travelled per crank revolution?

It's distances up to a max of 200 metres I'm trying to reasonably measure - cos parking the bike on sometimes dangerous fast (aren't they always to us no car cyclsists), bendy narrow main roads and then pacing out an approximation could be dangerous :roll: Yesterday I consulted an OS 1913 6" to...

Re: Cycle Travel question!

. . . scale all the way to "long distance" and use A3 - I can get the northern half of Oxfordshire on one map, for example. Just pan/zoom the map to the place you want, then click once on the map to move the orange box there, and change the scale/paper size accordingly. I'm also strugglin...

Re: ... if Lion Bellworks is operating?

They're still showing the silver ones to be out of stock, but the brass ones are listed as available.

I'm sure I have a new unused silver (handlebar mount) one that is now surplus to requirements - I'll have a rummage later. PM me if interested?

I have 4 of their excellent bells in use :)

Re: risks of buying old steel frames

Depends on so many things surely?

Every purchase of a used frame is a risk regardless what it is made from

My most favourite, most comfortable, all day long ride frame is a 1948 Percy Stallard "Montlhèry". Accles and Pollock Kromo SAQ tubing.

I take the risk and enjoy it immensely :D

Hadn't considered that at all :roll: So no not really has to be the answer

Re: Portable Charger External Battery Power Bank Reccomendations?

Thank you ^ all for your replies and advice. So very much appreciated.

I'll order an Anker PowerCore+ mini 3350 :)

And yes will buy from a reputable dealer rather than eBayers who don't accept returns!

Portable Charger External Battery Power Bank Reccomendations?

Thinking it might be a good idea to procure one of these to be able to charge an iPhone SE when out cycling for long rides. Would this be worth considering? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANKER-Astro-E1-5200Mah-Compact-Portable-Charger-External-Battery-Power-Bank/113697261369?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26al...

Re: How to calculate metres travelled per crank revolution?

….....GPS positioning isn't near enough........... I'm surprised by this. With the 2 1/2" map on my phone, I reckon its accurate down to a metre or two.....as in which side of the hedge the bridlepath is. If mine was that accurate I'd be very pleased. My iPhone SE GPS tends to jump around by +...

How to calculate metres travelled per crank revolution?

Whilst trying to locate, photograph and log local remaining Ordnance Survey Benchmarks, I need a way of measuring distances up to ~250 metres, whilst out on the bike. If I could find a gear to pedal in that equated to say 5m per crank/pedal revolution, this would be very helpful. GPS positioning isn...

Re: Ascent replacement? Strava?

How about? (and I'm so far from a computer geek so may well be/probably irrelevant) Backwards thinking seems a good capability these days :( If you can still access all your historical stuff on Ascent, how about creating a bootable clone of your current Mac Sierra OS onto another drive before you 'u...

Re: Moulton SST -- reasons (not) to buy?

Perhaps AI could be employed to prevent thread drift (the collective scourge of fora) - or any other means, please?
