  • Having procured a cog back cog for my fixed bike, can anyone suggest somewhere cheap that will swap out the old one and replace the chain?

    Was quoted a tenner at one place..

  • Spend a bit more than a tenner on a chainwhip and a lockring spanner and do it yourself.

  • or free if you hit up the >>>>>tools thread >>>>>>

  • Spend a bit more than a tenner on a chainwhip and a lockring spanner and do it yourself.

    This would be the way to go, but I travel a lot and need to try to keep tool weight to a minimum.

  • A tenner's cheap: just ask Jeez...

  • anyone paid for postage from Germany. Guy is quoting me 34 euros for a frame and wheels from Germany. Sounds too reasonable to me. Can anyone advise?

  • Have a look at the Deutsche Post web site to check, but our Post Office is expensive, especially for international, so you may have become accustomed to getting shafted.

  • Just make sure you're protected well with paypal or etc - too much hassle a trade going wrong even without international borders in the way!

  • Q
    anyone know if said headset compatible with a Chris King NoThreadSet 1" crown race/ baseplate?
    no joy googling.

    Q
    where can i get a campagnolo record 1" threadless compatible crown race (cheap)?

  • A tenner's cheap: just ask Jeez...

    Elaborate!

  • Just had a first go with my Speedplay Zero pedals last night. I have correct shims, held a straight edge up to the cleat and it was very level. I've not over torqued the screws. Cleats also lightly GT85'd.

    I'm 74kg and I had to give hard stamp down to get into them. Thats not right, shirley?

    Are they really meant to be that stiff to clip into?

  • They can take a good stamp.

  • Hmmm. I can't see myself pulling away from junctions or lights very quickly then..

  • Hi all, been asked to setup a race with eon cycle live in nottingham and they have asked me for race rules regarding the race itself and bike spec. Is there anywhere on here that already has a list of (as we all love lists) rules that i can pick and choose from? I have a meeting today at 3:30 to sort it through and i wouldn't mind having a list of rules. i was looking for the rules from either the hunt or red hook etc and i seem to be hitting at a loss?

    Cheers

    Pete

  • Hmmm. I can't see myself pulling away from junctions or lights very quickly then..

    Trackstand, or carry a walking stick everywhere so you can prop yourself up when at the lights then!

    Christ, it's not rocket science.

    Might also be worth asking in the Track forum. It might get more attention than being asked in this thread.

  • British Cycling Regulations?

  • 28 spokes minimum

    Any reason for this? Don't see why I shouldn't be allowed to use ellipses (20 spoke)

    aero-designed parts are prohibited

    Where do you draw the line with this? My forks are sold as being "aero", other people have drop bars with flat aero tops.

    Wheel switches are permitted only for wheel failures (notfor flat tyres), and must be identical or essentially identical to the failedwheel.

    Seems a bit harsh for anyone who gets a puncture, standard practice is to allow them to rejoin on the next lap I think?

  • re: 28 spokes, no major reason, levels the playing field to an extent however this is exactly the reason i'm asking you lot for help, i'll switch it for a 16 spoke min?

    re: arro stuff, i don't want people turning up on fixed tt rigs and dominating off the front in all aero gear etc. aero and bars forks are fine, trying to steer people away from tt helmets, deep profile wheels/discs etc.

    also, a few of these were pulled from the bc regs however there descriptions are a biut 'longhand' for this event.
    re: p*nctures,

  • Yeah, 16 spoke sounds good, just incase anyone's got an oldschool shamal.

    :(

    Seriously though, sounds good and I understand your point.

  • Haha, dashed your hopes have i a little, yeah go-on pop the skinsuit and deep sections back away now.

  • I'm "world champion"? Cool.

  • I appreciate that's not a question, so here's one:

    Vis a discussion in some other thread, do batteries increase in weight:

    a) At all?
    b) Perceptibly to the human hand

    during charging.

  • a) yes.
    b) no.
