Re: Off Topic - siezed, rusted, possibly double threaded, sheared bolt extraction advice!

My point wasn't really that this was or wasn't a reasonable price, nor whether I would or would not pay it.

But that internet flaming and stating things are a rip off is all too common when we haven't used a service.

High mount bottle cage?

Anyone know of a bottle cage with the bolt holes right at the bottom, so the cage essentially mounts very high up?

Cheers

I know of the little bar things that move cages up or down, these are the second best option :grin:

Re: Trailmech hubs

Same as everyone here. I suspect the hubs in the first post are Novatec / Bitex and will more than likely be absolutely fine.

I have a set of hunts, trailwides from 2021. They need new grease in the freehub a bit more often than some DT Swiss I have, but other than that just keep on running.
