    Àll those cheap ones are for 10 mm axle, so they are ruled out even before quality is considered as I have QR wheelset, so I will just buy the Surly one then.

    Is there any cheaper alternative to Surly Tuggnut for tensioning the chain in track ends of Longitude, compatible with QR axle? I already have Allen key skewers.

    Here is the most informative article on topic of dynamo hubs performance I have ever seen: https://www.cyclingabout.com/dynamo-hub-­power-drag-testing-schmidt-son-shutter-p­recision-shimano/

    Not sure if there is any topic specifically for MTB tyres, so will just ask here.
    I have 2015 Longitude with Halo Vapour 35 wheelset, I would like to turn it into 29+ SSMTB, would this 30 mm internal rim be enough for 3.0 tyre like Maxxis Chronicle? I can buy those tyres slightly used cheap, would like to keep this wheelset as I love the instant engagement. Just not sure if going 3.0 will be worth it or better stick with a big 2.6 tyre like Mezcal.

    I'm going to turn my Longitude into 29+ singlespeed, but can't find 19/20t single speed cog for HG freehub anywhere (preferably with wider base). Do you know where can I find it? Best would be any place in Birmingham.

    I have recently bought a 931 Equilibrium Disc (frame is Di2 compatible) and suddenly found used ST-R785 shifters for about 70 GBP here. Now contemplating whether to go Di2 and swap the current RS505/5800 drivetrain for Ultegra Di2. What parts exactly would I need apart from derailleurs, and is it good to buy everything used or something particular is better bought new with warranty? Also how much do you estimate would I need to spend to get all the needed parts?

    Are Hutchinson Fusion 5 Performance in 30c size durable enough to serve as all-year tubeless tyre for road riding?

    For flip-flop hubs like Novatec A186 or Miche Primato, is there any difference in chainline between fixed and SS side? Thinking about upgrading my Singlecross, but not sure about what chainline would I need.
    Also, how do you rate the square taper Sugino cranks that are mounted in Singlecross stock? Wondering if I should keep them and only buy a new chainring, or swap everything for e.g. Alfine crankset or SRAM S350 (not sure about the optimal chainline, one is 42,7, the other 45,5 mm).

    Do you know any shop in the UK that has fork-mounted cantilever hanger? Trying but finding only the steerer tube one so far.
