Yeah buying shoes online is tricky. Sigma are pretty good about it though (pretty sure they offer free returns) so no harm in ordering several pairs to try on so that you don't realise down the track you've made the wrong decision.
Also be aware Lake have different lasts depending on which model you choose. I have wide but not high volume feet and the Competition last of the CX 238 was way too big for me, whereas the same size in a CX332 with the Race last was a perfect fit.
If you're replacing the bearings anyways you might as well spray some WD 40 in there to try and loosen things up.
There is also a small lip on the inside of the end cap, you can use your skewer to tap it out gently
My mate had the bottle cage bosses on his Standert break loose and fall into the frame. Standert were very helpful about it and ended up paying a LBS to fix the frame so my mate didn't have to send it back to Germany.
Tldr; they are very accommodating with their warranty
I had this issue with Hope hubs too. Just pop off the end cap, fit the rotor then pop the end cap back in.
Is anyone here an expert on Surrey trails? I've got a mate who's training for AMR so we're going to do a longish gravel ride on Saturday. I've taken some liberties combining a couple of shorter routes but I don't know the area well - anything in this route that we should avoid?
Got some M530 trails going for £10, bit ugly to look at but functionally perfect
Yeah pretty much, possibly even larger. They have released a new version though which is sized up on 19mm rims so the new 26mm Pirelli (replaced the 25mm version) will probably fit ok
Have a bump, these are great tyres. I'm running a pair of the 35s and I love them. So easy to set up tubeless. Good price too
