    You’d never want to go small/small on the sprockets/rings anyway, but you can trim the front mech by a click to move it away from the chain.

    I broke my leg falling out of bed as a child, and as a result have a Charlie Chaplin-esq right foot, which when lying on my back points out at about a 40 degree angle.

    The only issue I’ve ever had when cycling is finding cleats that let me set an appropriate angle for my foot without bashing my heel into either the crank arm or rear stay.

    As others have said, don’t rush it. I’m sure you’ll find something suitable for your set up.

    There’s a thread for TTing here - https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/1425­37/

    Do you still TT? Yes or No (if yes, then thank you very much for your answer, we will welcome your cash).

    It was the most ridiculous of surveys. Looked like the questions were designed by someone aged 8.

    There was, and a great route it was too. Wouldn't remember the directions for it now even if they came and bit me on the arse though.

    Plus make it nice and warm so it’s as mailable as possible. Go grab your best hairdryer.

    Ah, yes. Now I remember that part, I stripped the hub down a bit before lockdown as I was suffering from slipping gears. Thanks for the reminder. Will order both and sit down with a cup of coffee one day.

    Pulled itself out of the hub. I always screw it right in then back it out a turn before attaching the cable. It pulled (or slipped) out 5mm or so, as that’s what I was able to screw it back in once on the train home.

    Indicator chain on my BWR pulled itself out about 5mm. New chain time, or has anyone experienced this and found the threads in their hub to be stripped?

    The chain has screwed back in Ok and seems to be holding fast. For now.
