  • Re: Next weekend is the big Ride

     Well, another Ride to Conquer Cancer is in the history books.  I'm 1 of only 46 people who have done the Alberta, Canada edition of the ride all 9 years thus far (and I'm pretty sure I  am the only one who has also volunteered as part of the crew each year as well). The Ride went well overall....it was +31C on Day 1 and ...

  • Next weekend is the big Ride

    Yes, it is that time of year again....next weekend is the Ride to Conquer Cancer for me once again. Monday (local holiday) I am getting the S2 cleaned up, doing the last of the fine tuning and getting ready for next weekend. Should be a grand adventure for year 9 and I'm wearing my 3 helmets again: rider, medical crew (bike patroller) and ...

  • Re: Noisy drivetrain

    Bobbob, Don't forget, noisy is relative. For the longest time, the most silent bike I ever owned was a single speed (not a fixie) with a Shimano freewheel. In general, the only sounds were the crunch of the tires on the asphalt and the faintest whisper of a click from the freewheel. Now, my S2 is the quietest when I am freewheeling along as ...

    [quote user="crit_racer"]Thanks a lot jakes and goodboyr. Used both the hot water and bb tool in vice and that got the bb out. Funny thing is the old 6600 bb ran smoother than this new sram gxp bb. Oh well, the things you do for weight savings.[/quote]  I used to run a SRAM GXP BB in my 2012 S2. I found I had to re-grease the ...

    bobbob, what are you running for cassette, chain and derailleur(s)? How old are the jockey wheels? Was the chain cleaned after installation, or was it still noisy with that crappy cosmoline grease crud that the chains are shipped with on it? Still lots of potential causes out there.

  • Re: Daytime running headlights

    I am starting to use blinkies on both ends more and more during the day. I have a PlanetBike Superflash on the back of the bike and if I anticipate much traffic at all, I have it on. Out in the boonies, I still tend not to run it, but closer to town, I'll flash my butt at the drivers ;) I've also added a little brake light on the brake ...

  • Re: New wheels....noice!!

    peislc, I've got the 2nd gen Altamont hoops and am using the same CXRays that Boyd does, but I had ProWheelBuilder put these together for me using Onyx dual sprag Campy road hubs. I do like them and they are showing themselves to be quick, dependable wheels.   In fact, on Saturday I ended up going out for a Metric and on the way back ...

  • Re: New wheels....noice!!

    Update time...really liking the wheels. There is a definite difference in handling and the silent rear hub and instant engagement is pretty unique...other than some chain noise while pedaling, the crunch of tires on asphalt is the only sound. I find that the bike somewhat disappears under you...which I think is the only way to ride. ;)  I ...

  • Re: Cassette help, which one?

    [quote user="Allanj"]Fairly simple really- do you find yourself struggling on the 39/25? If yes then go for a 28 at the back At the other end, do you find yourself spinning out on the 53/12? If yes then go for an 11 at the back. If it's no to both these questions, and you don't intend to change where you ride then no need ...

    [quote user="apwndwest"]Feels good to get the results after the money and effort..[/quote] Sure does...I hummed and hawed over my build for what seems like forever.  I won't claim monumental aerodynamic improvements (but they do seem a bit faster, being wider and deeper than my previous wheels), the ride quality is a bit ...
