Law Change For Pedal Reflectors

Apologies if this has been discussed before (I did a search). We all know that the law states we should have pedal reflectors, however most of the pedals I use do not have them or the room to put them. I think this is a perfect opportunity to have a law ammended to state that they are not required o...

Re: shimano dynamo AXA Luxx 70 Biologic recharge issue

Hi All,

apologies I went silent on this, I haven't been getting any prompts. I am going to add some recharge protection just to be on the safe side!

Many thanks for all your helpful replies as usual!

Re: Wheel Build with Chain Reaction

Hiya, no special reason other than the dynamo hub i got was centerlock, so would like the rear one to match. That may be fussy but i have built my bike up and the only bit I had put together by someone else isn't quite right.. and as they say no one else may notice the imperfection but I will know i...

Re: Wheel Build with Chain Reaction

@ all those who helped above it appears that really is how much resistance so thankyou for all your help! The other problem with my wheel build is I specified centrelock rotors and they fitted a rear hub with bolt on .... the best they are offering is a bolt on disc as a freebie ... considering my o...

Re: Wheel Build with Chain Reaction

Re: Wheel Build with Chain Reaction

Wheel Build with Chain Reaction

Hi, always had good things to say about chain reaction, however I just had a set of wheels built with them. I had to order the front dynamo hub from Rose Bikes and when the wheels turned up: front dynamo hub is juddering like the hub is to tight, slackened off the non power connector side and all I ...
