Re: Achilles Tendinitis

Fraz101, thanks for your response. I am glad you have recovered now! I find your response really interesting, that you had pretty much the worst Achilles injury but no pain. Pain seems to be fundamental to a clear diagnosis. Can I ask, what did you feel during your recovery? During recovery it was ...

Re: Achilles Tendinitis

So I snapped my Achilles' tendon around 10-12 years ago playing football. Complete 100% rupture and was re joined with surgery. Sounds painful but there was zero pain whatsoever just couldn't feel my foot I was in cast for 12weeks and 12 weeks of physio there after. Stretching,stretching and more st...

Re: Ergon gp1 grips slipping

One side is rock solid but the other just won’t stay tight. I’ve had both back off and checked there on correctly and still the same Edit just figured it out. Had to adjust my brake and gear lever inwards by 10mm as it was only 120mm length instead of the reunited 130mm. All good now thankfully. Che...

Ergon gp1 grips slipping

Hi

My new bike came with the above grips,however one side has started to slip round.

They have a bolt at the end of them which I have endured is tight.

What could I do to stop them slipping round when cycling?

Re: Opinion on my chainrings please

It looks like the small chainring is worn the most. If this is used with the small sprockets frequently the "cross chaining" as it's called could have led to early failure. Try to use the middle chainring and bigger sprockets more. :wink: Yes small cog front and rear is a habit i'm going ...

Re: Opinion on my chainrings please

In a bit of a rush now but will look later. If the gears are working fine now but you are thinking of changing the freewheel (or cassette as the case may be) why not just maintain and continue to use until things don't work so well? I don't measure for wear and I get lots more wear out of gear part...

Re: Opinion on my chainrings please

worn chain etc won't help but if shifting is poor then there could be all kinds of problems with the rest of the transmission too. RDs don't last for ever and cheap RDs can wear out in no time really. cheers It’s definitely due to stretched chain,when I put a new chain on the gear change is perfect

Re: Opinion on my chainrings please

Are you deciding that your chain is spent because it is slipping, or because a chain measuring thing is telling you it is spent? The teeth on the chainrings look a bit worn but I have seen and used worse. Chain has been measured See pic attached in my previous thread bottom post of this page link h...

Opinion on my chainrings please

Been through 2 chains in extremely short mileage as some of you may know. I now need another chain and freewheel. I’m just a bit conscious of maybe the chainring causing premature chain wear. The front rings are original and probably done around 4K miles. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180623/56...
