My favourite spd pedal. They made a new one that has half a cage but is rubbish. The A600 was Ultegra level. I bought another set in case they stopped making it. They stopped making it I think ;(

Left hand front brake lever and caliper (euro) normally front brake in UK is right hand. Parts for bikes very hard to buy at all right now, anything under rrp is good.

YouTube is your friend in this instance. Most big brands have tear down/fixing videos. Park tools, all suspension manufacturers etc. Any oddities will no doubt have been experienced by forums like single track, Mbr etc. There’s a lot of American stuff out there but it’s still relevant because of the prominent bike manufacturers.

michaeljb

Personally I can't, I'm not a member on any of the forums myself, most of what I know about bikes (which ain't much) I learnt hanging around bike shops when i was a kid, way back when. For keeping up to date with new bike tech i normally just watch a few bike related youtube channels like GMBN tech, Pinkbike, GCN and ParkTools. Many of those channels also have their own forums as well.

Perfect! Thanks a lot for the knowledge! Can you please recommend a good site for walk through's when it comes to bike repair and one for general bike info - maybe a forum?

Thats a straight fit BH59 style, so that kit on ebay you linked above should be fine (y)

Very good question! The only banjo's I know have strings ;) I asked and he said, no, it's not a banjo (y) The model of the front brake is br-m486 and the bike is a Carrera Subway Eight (I bought it used so I can't say which year, sorry)

Baby oil is dirt cheap :D I have mounted the levers of these euro style set ups upside in the past. Probably not recommended, but it certainly worked OK until I got a second brake so I could swap the hoses over.

£16 for a litre, which will last forever since it doesn't absorb water. The 3rd party bleed kits are better than the factory ones and maybe £15-20 for a good one.

Gawd, the amount of double checking and research and hundreds of photos I took just to rebuild my old bike, jesus wept these bike designers are contrary sadists. One bearing should not require multiple specialised $$$ tools to disassemble, when you can repair an entire Citroen 2CV with nary more than a 10mm spanner

speedygonzalez

Apart from different bottom bracket shell size/thread, there are two entirely different versions of Octalink which look similar. Fit the wrong one and the steel bottom bracket will grind your alloy chainset into dust and might even cause an accident. Don't ask me how I found out. See https://www.sheldonbrown.com/bbsize.html

The 3 speed nexus is very reliable over the long term, it's basically a clone pretty much of the sturmey archer 3 speed hub. 3 speed hubs are very simple engineering and very low maintenance. It's worth considering because they are ideal for a folding bike admittedly though the gear range isn't as good but remember folding bikes are typically slow and low geared because of the small wheels so even a 3 speed hub will get you up the hills but will not deliver super fast speeds on the flats unless you have a super high cadence. Lots of old folding bikes have 3 speed hubs, the old Raleigh Twenties and Dawes Kingpins plus early Dahons and Bickertons it was seen as the obvious gearing to use for a folding bike.

Krs-won

That's great! Thanks a lot for taking the time to give me your insight (y) My usage would be limited, as would be the distances I'd use it for so as usual, it's finding that balance between cost and quality, hence my thoughts about buying used. I'd never considered the stresses taking their toll on an aluminium framed bike - so that really is something I'll consider. I'd still take a range of gears and the issues that comes with having a derailleur over a single speed. I think the majority of people buying a folding bike would be looking for something for commuting and using it daily, but for me it would most likely be just for shirt shuttles into a city when I couldn't park within walking distance. At the end of the day, if I can't find something that'll do the job at the right price point, I'll make do with my hybrid and messing around taking the wheels out and struggling to get it to fit! But your message has given me some food for thought and I'll certainly have a nosy on ebay to see what the going rate is for some of the models you mentioned.

bonzobanana

I wouldn't dismiss a bike like this, some of the higher end folding bikes trying to achieve a lightweight folding bike have had high failure rates, Tern for example with a huge number of recalls. Seems like aluminium is not the ideal frame material for a folding bike because of the stresses around the hinge. A folding bike that often goes overlooked is the Giant Halfway its exceptionally well made and many were sold with single sided stays and single fork leg so they fold quite flat. Unfortunately like this bike they have a non-height adjustable stem normally so the range of people that can use the same folding bike in height terms is not as good as those with a height adjustable stem. Also bear in mind that derailleurs are not ideal for folding bikes because of the small wheels. A hub geared or even single speed folding bike can be a good option as less likely to get damaged. Derailleurs on folding bikes can get absolutely caked in mud and dirt as so close to the ground. Good folding bikes to look out for s/hand; Carrera Intercity Carrera Transit Giant Halfway Compass Fast Forward Brompton of course but they rarely go cheap. Muddyfox Evolve 200 (same bike as Carrera Transit but with a 7 speed nexus instead of 3 speed nexus of the Transit) Dahon are worth a look but I would buy by spec as they do some low end entry bikes that are fairly poor with freewheels which they charged up to £500 retail for but personally I would pay no more than £50 for s/hand. Remember most bike brands are just importers really so it's up to the consumer to assess how good the factory is they used. Same as Dahon almost all their bikes they buy from other factories. Brompton and Giant make their own bikes. Lastly bear in mind weight limits, some weight limits on folding bikes are quite low. I think the Giant Halfway is the most at 160kg total load including the bike weight so a good model for touring. Some models sold can be as low as 60kg for the rider, these are typically bikes sold on ebay or some Argos models which are basic low end chinese market models. Most are in between. If you are buying a aluminium folding bike a few years old the frame will not be as strong as when new. Aluminium frames always weaken with use and time, its the nature of the material as it has no endurance limit. So an old Brompton may still be good for many, many years but an aluminium folding bike is more likely to fail. Dahon did some chromoly steel folding bikes which are still relatively light, ride very well because of the flex of the steel and are likely longer lasting than their lightweight aluminium models. Steel makes a lot of sense for a folding bike for so many reasons although ideally you want a higher grade chromoly steel based frame rather than just basic high tensile steel. Saying that the Brompton is a mixture of steel types with both chromoly and high tensile steel used in different areas so it achieves the perfect feel and strength in the right areas. Brilliant engineering but reflected in the price.

montyburns56

To be honest I don't know that much about these new fangled electronic gear shifters.

xchaotic

Ok, so I have found a front derailleur from someone else and also ultegra DI2 levers which I fit my setup as I have hydraulic brakes. I assume all I need now is the cables / junction and batteries?

montyburns56

That's why it's a good idea to buy the groupset individually as you can sneak it into the house more easily. "Is that a rear derailleur in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me"

xchaotic

A whole new bike doesn't pass the wife test ;)

montyburns56

In theory it's probably cheaper to buy the complete groupset if you can get it at a good price, but it might be easier on the credit card if you buy it in dribs and drabs. It would be even cheaper to just buy a complete bike fitted with it from one of big companies.

Yes, totally agree on the risk front but there are plenty of second hand bikes available that have barely every been ridden. If you’re lucky enough to find one of them or buy a previous season model direct from the manufacturers shop.

bonzobanana

Well Giant are great and manufacturer their own frames to very high standards but Ribble frames like Planet X are sourced from some pretty decent CF factories in the far east like many of the major US and EU brands who often charge a lot more. However there is still the issue if buying secondhand you don't know the history of the frame and forks and most people don't bother to scan CF frames and forks they purchase so its much more of a gamble even with Giant.

irishman21

Decent although with a bit of effort and luck you could find a great bike second hand for that money. I picked up a Giant TCR with Ultegra for not much more than that.

I prefer spd to spd sl as the positioning of the foot is better for me. However I would not wear spd mtb shoes as I am a road cyclist.

They are mens shoes so mens. What I would say is that they are more contored that their MTB shoes ( which I go up a size in) they are pretty snug (even with the size up) with merino socks but should be a bit more room with summer socks. There are seperate women specific versions.

Nope, they have air vents these are road shoes so you would normally wear covers. If you want waterproof shoes they are a lot more expensive and more MTB.

Glad you got that off your chest. Rather than read through all this chit-chat, would advise anyone considering purchase to look at the independent review I linked to above. It's taken from someone who's used this set on a number of rides, with different tyres on different terrains, and by the looks of things for hundreds of km with them. Yes it's a 5yr old post, but these are effectively New-old-stock wheels anyway, and priced accordingly. Vive la difference.

apreading

Have you read the title of this deal? The same title on the Wiggle website. Tell me where on either it says its a gravel wheelset rather than a road wheelset? This has a REALLY narrow inner width, limiting the tyres you can use - counting out most of the wider tyres used by Cyclocross. Its got a low spoke count and aero spokes - neither of which is really ideal for gravel/cyclocross. Sure it will work but so will any other wheel. Its cheap yes, but that doesnt mean its good. Its probably no better than the wheels that came on your bike when you bought it. So for anyone looking for an upgrade, this is £70/£80 wasted. There is nothing wrong with them but nothing special about them either - if your current wheels work then no sense in buying these. I cant post a better wheelset at this price because there isnt a wheelset that would represent an upgrade on the wheels that came with your bike. If they are still fine then stick with them or save up for something that would actually be an improvement. I am going to jog on now, because I am bored of discussing with someone who doesnt know what they are talking about. But I suggest everyone else pass this one by unless you really need new wheels and cant afford something better. Sorry if that is not what you wanted to hear.

meggie_dude

I would warrant a wheeler suitable for a gravel bike would be more robust than a wheelset built for road only, which the Prime set you list is. Read the spec. Then ask Shimano and Prime which is more appropriate. Maybe buy yourself the RX31 and ride your bike off-road and see which wheelset lasts the longest. As I say, if you have a better deal, post it, rather than bitch about this one. Or, as you don't think this deal is any good, fine, jog on and find something better. I really don't care.

Just what do you think the difference between a road wheelset and a gravel wheelset is?

Yep to ride on the road it’s a legal requirement, hence the case with the fixie bikes, on a 4x/dirt jump bike it’s usually rear or both

yadiyada

Front. When you need to stop, all your weight is going forward...a back brake just won't get you stopped. Obvs you really want both brakes (and I think it's actually a legal requirement)

So if you were going to only have one brake on say a cyclepath road mild off-road,which would be better front or back?

Yeah you can in theory use it as a rear brake with a longer hose and olives/barb and a rebleed wouldn’t cost too much That’s my plan

It depends what and how you ride, you will sacrifice the top or bottom end but as you say cassettes are far larger 9-51t on 12 speed and even 11-50t on 11 speed (sunrace), I’d forgotten Shimano has brought out the deore 11–42t 10 speed cassette, for trail / enduro riding I like the simplicity 1x brings, it also frees up the space for a left hand dropper post lever , If you ride on the road a lot or touring (with more weight from panniers and bags on the frame 2x/3x drivetrains will offer the flexibility of gearing. Remember a 3x9 setup only has so many effective gears anyway due to same-same gearing rations across each chainring and lower or high gears cannot be used in all rings

yadiyada

So I just discovered that Shimano do an 11-42t option https://www.bikeradar.com/features/shimanos-massive-10spd-cassette-is-backwards-compatibility-done-right/ Which makes this SLX derailleur + Zee shifter a much more interesting option. I currently use a 9 speed HG400 12-36 cassette with a 48/36/26T triple up front (I never use the smallest of the cogs up front) What do you think? You know a lot more than I do... :)

darksideby182

Even cheaper nice.

vornstar13

(strong)

yadiyada

It's more of a bikepacking/29er rig (carrying around 7kg of gear + food/water). So not really a traditional touring bike. I'll just stick to the cheap/simple setup I have right now :)
