Bloody cold day. Air temp was about minus 3C but there was a very chilly wind on top of that.

Re: Todays ride

So today was just a short local bimble with coffee,.... .. I must admit though, when the moment finally came, and just when I'd nearly given up hope,....... it's just a bit of fun. Or, in the words of Sheryl Crow: if it makes you happy, it can't be that bad. https://www.instagram.com/p/CKY84KMFjye/...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Finished something I started last March. I had to take a hacksaw and file to a set of XTR cranks so that I could fit a Trickstuff Exzentriker BB. As a result, I've been able to remove the chain tensioner I'd fitted and the bike looks much "cleaner" now. Are these for threaded or press fit bb bearin...

It should fit the 29" (622mm rim) wheel but this could be dependent on the rim width. It'll be too big for 27.5".
No not heard of 28" either
Look for the erto no. On the side wall, this the circumference of the bead seat. Schwalbe have a guide advising type width vs rim width. Hope that helps.
