Re: 10-sp 'road' & 'mtn' cassettes the same fit?

AFAIK all Shimano 10 speed cassettes fit any 10 speed freehub. (also fit 8 & 9 hubs as well). I did have a 10 speed cassette that came with a thin spacer which I think was an Ultegra. Currently running 11/34 SLX cassette on Ultegra hub with a Deore 9 speed RD on one bike. Not sure whats on my ot...

Re: Any other motorcyclists here?

Currently got a Triumph Tiger 800. Really too heavy for me now. (couldn't pick it up if I dropped it.) so thinking about swapping for something lighter.

Re: Athena crankset replacement

As far as I understand Athena and Potenza are "power-torque" chainsets not "ultratorque" Just being a bit pedantic. :wink:
As it is any 11 speed power-torque Campag' chainset should just be a straight swap.

Re: Dyson vacuum replacement.

Thanks so far for the inputs. I was really impressed with our first "normal" wheeled Dyson. Had it for years and nothing wrong with it except for the weight. We don't have dogs but did have a pet daughter :D who had longer hair than most pooches. Unfortunately we were persuaded to part ex'...

Re: Dyson vacuum replacement.

We'd always felt Dyson were overrated. When our Miele eventually became too heavy - or we became too old and tired - we bought a G-Tech. Never looked back. Thanks and appreciate the reply. We have a G-tech Multi really just for the car. Not sure what it is but for some unknown reason I just don't l...

Dyson vacuum replacement.

We have had a Dyson "ball" vacuum cleaner for a few years but never been really happy with it. Yes it works fine but it is hard to handle and heavy. We are considering possibly getting one of the "cord free" battery types but have no idea whose make to get. Originally we had the ...

Re: Hollowtech II spacers - too many?

The 5603 is a road chainset and should have a chainline of 45mm. ie- The distance between the centre of the downtube and the teeth of the middle ring. http://www.sjscycles.com/Instructions/Shimano/Shimano_105_5600_Chainset_Instructions.pdf I seem to remember that the tech' document didn't seem to ma...

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

I went down to the local library and when I got there I noticed a large notice outside that said “health week”.
It said that to start the New Year off they were having a health week and that they would be selling vegetables.
Well, I thought that’s a turnip for the books isn’t it.

Re: How was Cycling 2019 for you?

Not the best of years. Only 2300 miles. A lot to do with the weather such as a very windy and wet days. Has this been one of the windiest years. ? Even on sunny days we seemed to have had strong winds (20+ MPH). Had 4 punctures this year, one of which was a snake-bite and the others thorns. Best rid...

Re: Has anyone bought wide shoes recently?

You could try a Sidi "Mega" shoe. Their add's say about 4mm wider than their normal fitting across the ball of the foot.

Re: Favourite smells

Cycling up through the lanes of Cornwall last year I would get a sweet perfume smell. It happened a few times before I realised what is was. Honeysuckle.
