Re: Wanted: QR adapters for Hope Pro 4

Older Pro2 (Non EVO) use different adapters. I should have remembered that as I've converted my Pro 2 (Non EVO) to EVO spec by using an EVO axle/spacer and freehub, I did it at the same time as going from QR to 142. The hub bodies are identical they just changed the axle/freehub for the EVO and onl...

Re: Will XT bottom bracket work in road frame?

I only know 'cos had same question recently so fresh in mind. The beauty of Shimano H2 chainsets is a small degree of flexibility on crank width on the spline unlike SRAM / Raceface which bottom out and rely on additional washers. Guess thats why H2 hasn't changed in 17 years (I have gone and done i...

Zwift F500. My take on this is no one knows what things will be like at Christmas. Could be better, could be worse.

What width are these please Shaf. Should be written in centre. Stated width please not some random measurement?

Also which version; previous models Cowchipper2 or Cowchipper3. Current version Cowchipper or cowchipper delux?

Thanks!

Re: Strong 29+ wheel recommendation

Gave up on Duallys because of the tubeless faff. Succeeded but was hard work. Also had burping issues (the tyre not me obvs) when cornering hard. Think its because the bead shelf isnt properly flat. Shame as really strong rim.

Arcs and WTB are superb, See CRC have WTBs for a good price.
