I currently use SRAM Rival crank/chainset, with no problems. I have a heel-in pedalling style (confirmed with a sports therapist) to alleviate knee pain. This means that my right shoe is not far from touching the rear mech cable alongside the chainstay when pedalling through the upstroke.
Shimano Dura Ace hubs in silver with Mavic CXP33 rims, 36 hole. Freehub takes 8,9 or 10 speed cassette.
They have been used a fair bit, the hubs are absolutely fine and run very well. The rims still have a bit of life left in them but probably need replacing soonish, depends on how much use they get I spose..
Asking £60 for the pair collected (Bristol) but willing to send but that would be an extra £10.

I'm selling a pair of Shimano RT82 SPD road shoes in size 43. I've only ridden them for about a hundred miles so they're in great condition and include all original documentation and packaging. The cleat mounting plates and waterproofing stickers are already installed, so just screw in your SPD cleats and you're good to go!
I'm selling them as my feet are slightly different sizes and the right shoe is just a bit too tight - otherwise I'd be keeping them as they're great for commuting, road riding with regular SPDs, Eggbeaters etc.
I bought some new wheels at the end of last year and I was doing some maintenance on the bike a few weeks ago and noticed that the rear wasn't spinning as freely as I'd have expected. I took it off and spun it in my hands and it still wasn't spinning so I decided to take the rear cassette off and see if I could figure out what the problem is.
After releasing the locking nut the first few cassette rings came off the hub without any trouble but then I couldn't get any more off. Whilst I haven't been to the gym recently I didn't think that my strength had abandoned me entirely so I had a good look and realised that the rings had 'bitten' through the splines on the freehub and locked itself in place.
I bought a Cube Streamer at the end of last year, and although I had only done a few hundred miles my gear shifter broke. The bike shop replaced it but was off the road for two weeks. Now after just another 1000 miles it has gone again. I hope they replace them but again this is pain to not have my bike. Has anyone else had any problems with this gear shifter
Hello, I'm in need of a new chain. The one I want to get has 112 links, but the one I currently have has 116. Is there going to be a problem fitting the new one? I'm assured that it is Shimano 10 spd (which is what I have) compatible. I've seen all kinds that are compact only, different widths, pin lengths etc. I feel im in a minefield and am guarenteed to buy the wrong thing.
I currently have a Shimano 105 5701 chain on an 11-28 cassette with a compact chainset. and am plannig to get this chain: http://www.highonbikes.com/drivetrain/chains-road/kmc-x10-93-silver-grey...
