Every ride, for the last week, I have tried to upload has failed with the error "tcx corrupted time data".
Strava sends me to a help page for fixing .fit files, my garmin records .tcx files.
Any ideas what is going on?
Here is another tutorial for removing the bearings. It’s a different “model” hub but it’s all the same.
The bearings will have a code on them, likely 6002RS, search for that on ebay and you will find replacements. You need 2 bearings per hub. If you need them urgently check your local bearing shop, they are a common size.
The metal is from your rims. I found the Shimano R55C3/4 pads picked up a lot of metal from my rims, causing scratching and horrible noise when braking.
I was always having to take the wheels out and dig the flakes out.
I switched to Swisstop pads and never had this issue.
What part of the hub have you knackered?
If it’s just the bearings you can buy higher quality ones for around £4 on eBay (depends on your hub). Purchase bearings made by SKF, NSK, FAG.
These are the rollers I use:
If I had the cash I would go for a smart turbo trainer and use it with Zwift.
I’m not sure if you can use a single speed/fixed bike with a turbo trainer?
Rollers would be best for single/fixed. I found them to be a bit boring after awhile as you can’t adjust the resistance while riding. It’s best to set them up in a doorway or next to a wall until you gain confidence.
I think an exercise bike would be the best option. If you don’t want to purchase a geared bike and turbo trainer.
Has anyone bought a pair of foakleys or pocs recently? Most recent links in this thread aren’t working anymore.
