Re: Chainring slotted female nuts ?

It's more a click click twice per revolution,anything other than an extremely light pedalling will cause it to click.

No play or roughness in bb bearing or pedals.

It's definitely coming from chainring/Bb area

Re: Chainring slotted female nuts ?

Re: Chainring slotted female nuts ?

I have a creak at the BB only when pedalling hard. Wanted to check my chain ring bolts for tightness but they look like this?

Re: Bike spoke broken

Just took spoke out. It is 264mm in length.

I notice they are cheap on eBay, how much for an average spoke at LBS?

How do I stress relieve spokes/wheel?

Re: Bike spoke broken

Yes the spoke has broken right where is it goes through the hole in the hub. So if I can remove the spoke from the nipple, I can measure the length of the spoke and replace it with the nipple still in place? In that case why would I need to know the nipple size? Sorry if those Qs seen stupid! Edit- ...

Chain lube

I never clean chains with any degreaser or other solution, wet weather and winter usually does a good job of clearing muck and lube off a chain so every now and then I just give them a lube of ep90. An old cloth sometimes to run the chain through to remove most surface gunk other wise just an oil u...
