It's well-known you can use Shimano 10-speed road levers to index a 9-speed MTB rear mech successfully on a 10-speed cassette. Does anyone know if you can use 11-speed road levers to index a 9-speed MTB mech on an 11-speed cassette?
The useless little nuts which come on inner tubes are your friends. Proper old-skool bodge....
I have, but I always order extra, what sort of bolts do you need?
Stainless torx head, M5 12-14mm. Might order a bundle later, its quite a useful length. I have loads of 8mm if those are useful...
Ah, mine are all 30, 40, 50mm lengths. I've got some good M5x20 and M5x25 from a previous order too. 8mm ones would be good for mudguards and bottle cages and shit I guess?
A lot of OTPs are delivered with said spacers, I can't see why it would be an issue?
Maybe, I guess I just need to find which ones work. Will try valve nuts later.
I guess that's 'No, you can't use 'em' ?
Spotted the back part of a moped (with number plate) on the bike path on the way home. Is this a report to police non-emergency (suspected theft) or report to council (flytipping)?
I can't find a clear answer on the internet, but is there a big problem with having a through axle front axle and qr rear on a road bike?
Flytipping, assuming the owner would have reported the theft?
Nope. Might make buying matching sets of wheels 3% more difficult but usually adapters etc. are available and how often do you buy new wheels?
That's what I was thinking. The WW forum seems to have a vendetta against mismatched axle standards
A living room light that worked with a dimmer switch (rotation), and also on/off by pressing down (like a button). Now the dimmer function doesn't work, but the light turns on and off when pressing, why?
But have you changed the bulb?
It's partly broken

If you have details of the number plate I would report to the police.
JTek shiftmate to fix the cable pull differences or just get an appropriate mech on eBay.
And that's when it stopped working? Is the new bulb one that doesn't do dimming? Would explain your problem.
@essdi @Constable_Savage thanks, to be on the safe side I've done both!
Have you changed the bulbs? Some don't dim.
