  Can I mount old brakes on a newer bike?
Posted by: Guest - 07-19-2008, 06:31 AM - Forum: Brakes & Levers - Replies (1)

The part on my frame where the V-brakes fit on to has broken off. Can I fit another type of brake? The frame has a bar above the brake with a hole in it like the old type of brakes.
Many thanks, Phil


  Gearing Question
Posted by: Guest - 07-19-2008, 06:26 AM - Forum: Chain, Chainrings & Sprockets - Replies (3)

Hi Alex, cool stuff. quick question:
I have a road bike with Shimano 105 double chainring cranks 53/39 and Sram 9speed 12-13-14-15-17-19-21-23-26. I'm thinking of doing a hilly century and some suggested I change the small chainring 39 to a smaller 30t (available for triple cranks) and then replace the 12t, 14t & 26t cogs of the rear cassette with 25t, 27t & 30t... is that really practical? or do-able at all?
Thanks!
Jason


  Chain slips a tooth
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 11:00 AM - Forum: Chain, Chainrings & Sprockets - Replies (1)

Hi Alex,
After a year of not using my ATB, I decided to clean the dust off it and go for a ride. After an afternoon of cleaning, adjusting the shifters & breaks I took it out for a spin, but every time I wanted to put some extra pressure on the pedals, the chain slipped a tooth or two on my back sprocket, no matter what gear. What can I do to fix it? (it has a Shimano Deore derailer from 2005).

What is the best way to remove dirt from your chain and derailleurs after a ride?


  Chain slipping every second rotation
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 10:44 AM - Forum: Chain, Chainrings & Sprockets - Replies (1)

Every second turn of the crank chain tension slackens and crank jumps, like chain is trying to catch up on the stroke.

  New Headset Indexing
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 10:22 AM - Forum: Headsets - Replies (1)

My headset is indexed. I had it replaced 2 months ago and it is already indexed. I noticed there was still some feeling of it even immediately after it was replaced. I admit I used a cheap bearing set ($40) but the only other one they had was German and cost $135. Suggestions appreciated.


  What is the best way to clean derailer cogs?
Posted by: Guest - 07-18-2008, 09:40 AM - Forum: Cleaning - Replies (1)

I have a mountain bike that in collecting lots of mud in the front and rear derailer cogs what is the best way to clean them? Also sometimes when I change to a lower gear it waits 4/5 seconds before doing it or does not change unless I change down another gear. Thanks. Mike
