Can’t wait to get a pair of these special glasses so I can keep an eye on @Zimmerframe and @Gary to make sure they are not attempting any fancy overtaking manoeuvres on my...
Anyone thinking about their ebike too much?
I decided to make a sandwich to take my mind off it but as I turned the key on the corned beef tin I couldn’t help noticing that at the start one turn of the key equalled one revolution of metal seal (just like the crank : front sprocket ratio on the...
Anything to be careful about in sub zero temperatures?
Isn’t metal supposed to be more brittle when cold?
Could a motor component, drive train / spoke break more easily or even the bike frame snap?
The door of my car froze once and when I tried to open it the handle snapped off in my hand...
Just a basic question,
I weigh 100kg and don’t really do jumps etc but I’m more concerned about comfort on very rocky trails.
considering my weight, would a 120 suspension e.g. Cube Stereo hybrid 120 be a bad choice? I don’t want to be bottoming out all the time.
I feel I’m stretching a bit to reach the handlebars. The most comfortable position is simply touching the grips with my fingertips but obviously not a good idea riding like that.
Do I simply add a couple of spacers to the stem or is it more complicated than that?
Got a big road trip coming up. Smooth tarmac. Not sure what pressure to use. Any suggestions?
tyres:- Nobby Nics 29 x 2.6 with inner tubes.
recommended pressure 20-45 PSI
bike:- Cube Hybrid Reaction Race hardtail
rider weight and baggage 100kg
Decathlon Stilus £2699
Focus Jam 6.7 £3999
Both seem to have very similar specs despite the huge price difference.
Bosch gen 4
RockShox 150mm travel
Admittedly the Focus does have a 625 battery as opposed to the Stilus’s 500 but am I missing something here?
is the Focus a much better bike and...
Anyone got any tips on making their tyres look new again? I use tyre gloss on my car tyres and they look amazing but wondered if anyone uses any particular products on their bike tyres. Using water alone just makes them look a bit dull and dry afterwards.
I’ve just received these Clarks resin brake pads for my Shimano XT brakes.
Ive noticed a little metal tab on the spring but not sure if this tab should be on the bottom or the top when I insert the pads into the Caliper. There are no right or left or up or down markings anywhere. Not seen this...
The gen 3 is lower powered (65nm) than the gen 2 CX(75nm) and used mainly on hybrid bikes. Anyone know what gives the CX more torque? I’m assuming they are both 250w motors. Is it just the gears inside which are different?
Every 2 weeks or so my total distance travelled and also trip counter lose about 50 miles suddenly. I’ll basically switch the bike on the next morning and I’ve somehow lost 50 miles on my odometer
ive got a Bosch purion.
anyone else had this issue?
