    A fine choice! Just be careful not to turn it on whilst looking directly at it (as I did). Retinas took a little time to recover Cool

  • TRP Spyre mechanical disc brake1 year 10 weeks agoPossibly your slight noise

    Possibly your slight noise came from using discs that have been used with a single moving pad. They work by flexing the disc a bit to touch the fixed pad. I am convinced that this has given mine a slight wave. Can't see any other way of that happening.
    Now which shall I buy?

    You don't have to count, just lay both chains out on the ground straight. If the old chain is fractionally longer and the links are out of phase just nudge it a millimetre along until they are in line, keep the links side by side until you get to the end and the right number.

    Or count them... is that such a hard task?

    Chill out - why do cyclists have to comment on every road incident, even ones where no bicycles are involved?

    Because the sort of driving that leads people to believe they are invincible when they drive into fog above the speed limit makes you wonder how much they really care about their own lives and those of other road users.

    And because we can Wink

  • How many links?1 year 10 weeks agoAll you need to do is wrap

    All you need to do is wrap the chain round the large chain ring and the large sprocket. Don't feed the chain through the derailleur. Line up the ends so the chain is taught. Add on two links. Then break the chain. If using SRAM you will have a power link so you should have two inner plates opposite each other to be attached. If Shimano then you will have a outer plate and inner plate ready to be attached with a rivet. Remember to feed shortened chain through dérailleur before joining. Hope this helps.

  • How many links?1 year 10 weeks agoThe chain does stretch but

    The chain does stretch but not noticeably, measuring tools range from 1/4, 1/2, 1%. So just count the links on the old chain. If you have a chain splitting tool you can get the longer length and reduce, especially if you have an odd number. Fix up the same number of links and it will be all new, just tighter...

  • How many links?1 year 10 weeks agoSheldon's and plenty other

    Sheldon's and plenty other websites will tell you how to determine right number of links.

    But the sure fire way if your current chain was the right length is to count the links yourself. Tedious but reliable, providing door bell doesn't go or small child comes into room and shoves a toy in your face mid count. But how certain are you that your chain was the right length to start? If you aren't then head to Sheldon's...
