  • Definitely sounds like a headset. You should be able to test this by holding the front brake on and rocking the bike back and forth. Can you feel any movement?

  • My rear DT Swiss 370 track hub axle is a bit mashed and need to run it through a die, but i'm unsure if its a M10 x 1.25 or M10 x 1.5.

    Anyone know what specific die I need?

  • Signed up for a Komoot Premium trial, and completely forgot about it because I don't think I ever used any of the features (it doesn't add much). Just been charged £60 for a year's subscription, and despite sending a very nicely worded email (IMO), they're essentially saying 'tough'. Anyone know of any loopholes or regulations I could use to get out of it? I want my £60 back...

  • How long between the time you signed up and sending the nicely worded email?

  • i'm unsure if its a M10 x 1.25 or M10 x 1.5.

    I don't know for sure, but it's far more likely to be M10×1.0 in common with 90% of other rear track hubs

  • Maybe an hour or two after being charged. 4 weeks after signing up for the trial, and as pointed out in their response, a week after they sent a reminder that the trial was ending...

  • they sent a reminder

    You're bang to rights if they sent the mandatory reminder in time for you to cancel before they charged you. Consider it a lesson in the cost of being disorganised.

  • Thanks! I had no idea really as i haven't had the reason to think about it before. Appreciate the help!

  • Can anyone suggest a good bulk (25+) supplier of stainless m5 bottle bolts?

  • Screwfix? I work for a company that supplies fabricators we would see bulk as many many thousand

  • Fair point. Bulk for the consumer.

  • Accu Group are my usual first port of call, many options available. I like the low height Torx for general purposes. 30p each when you buy 25 or more­ead-screws/14469-SHCL-M5-12-A2

  • Bulk for the consumer

    25 isn't even bulk for a consumer 🙂

  • Looking for some black/yellow bartape in the style of 1993 Lemond/GAN. Everything seems to be out of stock or wont ship to Sweden.

    Any suggestions? Also top of the Campagnolo around 1993 would be Super Record 8 speed?

  • top of the Campagnolo around 1993 would be Super

    It wouldn't. Just plain Record, 8-speed Ergopower. Only the hubs and cassette were offered in a Super option.

  • Easiest method to weigh a 3 wheel trailer?

    Scale under each wheel on level ground.. or will that not work?

  • How big/roughly how heavy? Could you hold it while standing on some scales, then subtract your own weight?

  • Yes it will work you might get a discrepancy because of the thickness of the scales. I used to check the weight on individual truck tyres with some super thin scales.

  • ...anyone cycled in Bavarian, Allgäu Alps ? looks like a lot of gravel climbing / MTB rather than alpine road climbs.....apart from road tours along the fantastic german cycleways of course.

  • what would be the appropriate Power Torque campag BB to replace a shimano press-fit on a Defy?

  • Fulcrum make some, but apart from that you're looking at handbuilts. Campag/fulcrum factory wheels are excellent though.
    Discs just slot into the existing calipers, provided the rotor is the same size as the one it's replacing.

  • I need a bolt for nds SRAM red crank. Anyone know what one I need and where to find it?

  • guys did you ever try to talk to brooks about replacing a C17 with a broken nose without warranty papers?

    i bought in in a real shop a few years ago and took good care of it, still it broke.... will brooks even offer to help me at all? replacement of the broken parts on a better price??

    i am super angry that an "expensive" saddle died like that....
