    On the Cyclingtips podcast they said that they weren't going to offer spares for the cleats, but were open to it in the future if it was clear there was demand.

    Chip Hawkins (CEO) and Ian Boswell (sponsored athlete/tester/product development) were on it.

    Has anyone had any success glueing the tread back on to gumwall Vittoria Corsa G+?

    Got a bike that's been stored over winter and got it out to bits of the tread coming up at the sides, maybe someone knows a glue that will help?

    Hi all, spoke length help needed. Building some Novatec D791SB CL and D792SB-CL hubs to DT Swiss R470 DB Rims. I've put all my numbers into the Dt Swiss spoke builder and it's come out with the attached.

    I'm going to use Alpina F1 spokes because I can get them cheaper but then probably get the DT Swiss nipples as I know the threaded lengths can vary, and if I'm using a DT Swiss calculator, they probably have it right.

    What spoke sizes should I get when I can only get even increments?

    I'm thinking x38 284mm and x14 282mm because always round down....
