"Grid covers worth £250k stolen in six-month theft spree in Stockport"
Be careful and all that...
Good afternoon you lovely pedallers.
I have this turbo on loan from a club-mate who says he's only ridden it once since purchase a couple of years ago. The idea was that if I like it, I can have it from him for half what he paid. So I stuck the bike on it last night, but it's not centred on the drum - the drum isn't even perpedicular to the wheel, so using it would result in uneven tyre wear.
I have a slight wobble just at the top of my headtube, Its only about 2-3mm laterally but its annoying! Ive checked that the fork isnt preventing the top cap compressing but i think it may be the top cap itself.
So having had my bike stolen ive gone and spent the insurance on (hopefully) all the required components to build one myself!
Planet x Carbon frame and largely 105 gruppo, Just before i begin wondered if you guys had any top tips or tricks that i may not get from books/online help? Anything appreciated! Cheers
I'd really like to learn how to index my gears and true my wheels after London's roads buckle them again and again, can anyone recommend a good maintenance course?
I've opened up, cleaned and re-greased my SRAM BlackBox GXP BB, one bearing spins perfectly, but I still feel 'grittiness' in the drive side's action. Any tips on how to get the last bits out?
In the last year my rediscovered enthusiasm for cycling has transferred to my family, which is fantastic, apart from the fact that it makes maintenance potentially expensive.
Two of our bikes currently need their chains replaced, my Specialized Sequoia is used for rides of up to 200k, my son's Trek 1000 for rides of up to 100k and criterium racing.
Fenwick’s Frame & Shock Finishing Spray isn’t a polish so much as a protective spray designed for preserving seasonal machines and equipment in storage (e.g. Sunday best road bikes or summer-use-only tag-alongs).
It’s silicone free but includes a trace of lubricant, providing a showroom finish in seconds while safeguarding suspension and bearing seals. However, it does attract surface dirt more readily than furniture or car polishes and it can highlight any blemishes in flamboyant, metallic enamels and clear lacquers.
I've got a pair of Campag Zonda wheels on my best bike and I've always really liked them. They're light, stiff, fast and look the mutt's nuts (IMO). A few hundred miles ago, when the wheels had done about 7.5K miles, the bearings on the back wheel started feeling rough so I took the bike into my LBS and they replaced the bearings (which cost me £60!)
