I was quite proud of myself for a while.
Popped the wheels off the roadbike, stripped off the cassette, chucked it on the new ones all about 5 minutes. Felt a bit like a TDF mechanic. Then about 10 minutes into my ride gears started jumping and skipping like a bugger. Got off and to my surprise the cassette has gone loose. But the lockring is tight.
Got to where I was going after about 10 miles of single speed as I found a gear that worked. Turns out Mavic hubs need a spacer before the cassette no matter how many gears on the cassette. Which should be a Mavic one but I've got a couple of Shimano ones I'll try first. Failing that the posh roadbike shop in town sells Mavic wheels so might have some knocking around.
So much for being like a TDF mechanic. I think they might know that.
Try the bike station Taz, theyre bound to have what your after given Edinburgh seems to have more bikes than Amsterdam
Spent all day applying F/polish to my TV unit.Decided to completely break with conventional French polishing and added a red pigment to the shellac
Really cant make things easy for myself
If it comes off it might well look not too shabby
Also just bought a hope X2[5 mins ago]
now have both callipers and one lever for the purple upgrade so just the last lever required.
Dave[TK] I like the look of that and its a not too bad price for effectively XT groupo.Really nice to see steel still available at all levels
What was the brake set up on it?
Well done MK.though i suspect theres a reason lurking under the surface
