    That is between 5 and 7 full bags and 80-150kg for most cargo bikes this is over capacity, and over the frame weight limit. for most bikes need to restock at least once so probably two bikes per trolly.

    with the universal delivery and the increase in mailsort (junk mail for most part) and door to door (leaflets) the increased delivery points posties are delivering too, plus the increased amount of mail per round. the writing has been on the wall for bikes for delivery, for a long time.

    What on earth do you mean by 'ruins the bike' ? I'm presuming you're on about some personal aesthetic veiw rather than the performance of it. Personally i've never been a fan of the look of Pinarello framesets, until possibly now, but I could give it a bit of leeway if it worked really well.. YMMV clearly ..

    ...for whom ?... because Pinarello are so really big in CX ? I personally think it'd be more suited for harder, less irregular, rough surfaces such as cobbles, sets, Sustrans routes..

  • Worked on friend's bike. Now kinda wishing I hadn't...17 hours 41 min agoIs the rear mech

    Is the rear mech 'b-adjustment' screw (think 105 mech has one?) set okay?

    Also, I had similar issues (not 105 but Shimano Deore IIRC) where after changing rear cassette and chain, with good chainrings, still had a jumping chain in some gears - definitely from the rear.

    Rear mech adjustment was perfect and gears would shift nicely when spinning the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground, i.e. unloaded. When loaded however it jumped some but not not all of the time.

    In the end I decided that although it 'looked' and shifted fine, the rear mech bushings were probably quite worn due to its age so bit the bullet and replaced that too. In my case that did the trick and it was only when I had the old and new mech's next to each other that I realised just how much the angular alignment had moved on the old one. The rear derailleur is obviously not loaded under pedalling forces but the interaction between it and the partially loaded chain must be different enough when compared to an unloaded shift test to subtly change how it is tensioned.

    Hope you get it sorted. The bike too.

    Now I have no issues with Alfine hubs, far from it - if i wanted to add a kilo and a fair chunk to a bike in return for slick, smooth, easy wearing, limited ratio gearbox without wanting to change gearing at all and had a completely spare couple of hundred quid extra to spend I'd actually love it (no, honestly, they are some N+1s it'd be great for) but this estimate of chain life.... based on years of experience I'd imagine or, of I may make so bold, utter pig ignorance ?
    I await to be enlightened.

    Shame, the suspension unit isn't pretty and ruins the bike. What have they done at the front end? Ah well, it won't stop the people who splash out on "italian" bikes made in Taiwan. By they way Giant's new Defy claims "comparable" compliance without any "gimmicks". But good on Pinarello for trying something new (- only it isn't).
