Re: Ride, from wherever yr @, to a microbrewry? 1st/2nd Fri of month

Noice! Sat was my Fri, so I tended to be dropping thru a few micro (and nano) breweries on my way home. There's plenty westwards too these days, so sadly, Goat is only an occasional visit. Boneheads and Henry St in Kensington (although not actually in Henry St) are frequent, Hop Nation and Two Bird...

Re: 10/11spd wheel set on 9spd

add a 1.8 mm spacer to the cassette to use a 9 speed on a 11 speed wheelset... should get you within adjustable limits.... :geek:

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Went out exploring today and tried the new trail that links the Warby Trail to the metro network. That is, the Croydon to Lilydale link that has been missing for many years. It's not yet officially open, construction is not complete, there are workmen on-site (in a few places) and there are signs u...

Re: Replacement wheels for Jamis Coda Sport femme

some flat bar road bikes use a mtb spacing (135mm)on the rear hub, might want to check the spacing as a 5mm spacer might be required to use a road wheelset (130mm).. ive only seen this in some lower spec stuff, but worth checking.

Re: Hire a wheel set for one - two days

Yes, I had Michelin Pro tyres on the bike before I switched to Continental. I agree the Michelin were very grippy. My experience was that they got too many punctures - hence the change. However, that may have just been bad luck?? Oh I agree, if I run them at higher pressures (100+) they will cut up...

Re: Hire a wheel set for one - two days

a surprise i got was when i managed to purchase some shimano r500 wheels for $100, they are just under 1900gms a set, so no lightweights, simmilar spoking pattern to the other shimano offerings, just a few more spokes and they use more readily available j bend spokes... after over a year of riding ...

Re: Hire a wheel set for one - two days

How do you go about making the decision? Do you set a budget and stick to it - just buying the best you can get within that budget or do you find what you really like and then somehow figure out how to swallow the cost? DECISIONS, Decisions, decisions .............. :shock: To me, it was always abo...

Re: Hire a wheel set for one - two days

.......... you can purchase sapim cxray spokes to suit ......... Hi Dale, thanks for your contribution. Yes, seeing as how I'm trying to avoid broken spokes I should pay attention to which spokes a wheel has. Sapim seem to have a good reputation. Are they the best? They are probably the best 'race'...
