Is there a Di 2 Guru here?

If so can you answer a couple of questions please? Are there two sets of wires around for Di 2? Would these be the older 4 wire system and the new e tube (2 wire system)? Are the two types interchangeable ie use the same connectors? Where can I find a definitive list of the e tube cable lengths avai...

Re: Juin Tech service

Thanks for the replies.
I do most things on my bike but hydraulics I leave to my lbs.
The bleed instructions mention various Shimano items and piston gap gauges.
Also I don't have the fluids or the disposal facilities so I will let them have a go.

Juin Tech service

Does anyone know if Juin Tech R1 calipers are serviceable?
No response from agents.
Are there any parts such as seals?

Re: Bike Stand

Re inverting bike to repair punctures. I have done it and occasionally will do again. However I found out the hard way that with some elderly hydraulic brakes this is not a good idea as they may cease to function for a while after. First preferred method when away from home is to hang the bike by th...

Re: Juin le Pain

As you were.
Managed to get the bike up in the stand and have a close look.
Screwed the adjuster in and I have a front break. :oops: :lol:
Pads are worn though so just pads not calipers required.
If it wasn't raining here in sunny Devon I would take it for a ride.

Re: Cape Wrath

but as to path not really you just pick your best way south


Is it a bogfest or easy going?
The gpx I have shows the 'path' making detours inland to cross some of the streams and OS shows these as quite steep sided in places.

Cape Wrath

I keep seeing references to a path south from Cape Wrath to Sandwood bay. OS do not show a path and walker reports say there is no path just have to pick your way. Aside from it being a firing range is this doable with a bike and is it worth it or just a death march? Planning on going north by the c...

XT/Ultegra

Toying with building an off road tourer using XT Di2 groupset but as using semi drops will require STI levers/shifters. As far as I can see the Ultegra 6870 STI Levers will run the FD and RD but they are designed for rim brakes cable operated. Reluctant to go hydraulic disc at present unless I can p...

Re: 240s Rear Hub tight

Finally took the wheel to the LBS who sorted it out in no time. Turns out the freehub end cap was ever so slightly distorted. They only found it by swapping for a new one which solved it. Nothing you could spot until you look very closely on a flat surface and even then you would think that's someth...

Re: 240s Rear Hub tight

That's different to any other exploded view I have seen.
The answer may be 42 but what is it?

240s Rear Hub tight

You know those five minute jobs that somehow just grow well got one of those. I am planning on changing a set of wheels of one bike to another. Fronts are the same but rear is currently 135 QR and needs to be 12 x 142. Simple just change the freehub and end caps job done. Just to make sure I have th...

Re: Retro fitting a headlight to a bicycle helmet

I have one of those cree double led lights £10 of ebay as a back up light for off road use. Two or three light levels and flashes. Largish battery pack and dodgy charger but hasn't burnt the house down yet. Bought a rounded mounting thing for the helmet so can mount on helmet or handle bar. I think ...

Cleaning Hope bearings

Got a used frame I bought in and would like to give the Headset & Bottom Bracket bearings a clean while things are accessible to see if any mileage left in them. Bearings feel smooth but slightly notchy which I am hoping is the old grease. Headset is the Hope equivalent of 44/56 inset zero stack...

Re: Power bank

As pass through was not part of your original question I assume its not required. I use the Pebble to charge batteries for etrex, SPOT3, phone and lights. For trips over five days I charge the Pebble via SON dynamo and e-werk USB during the day then the batteries at night. Pass through can be hit an...
