Call for links to technical resources.
« on: 25 January, 2012, 07:28:28 pm »
I'm going to introduce a third sticky thread* with links to official and definitive technical resources around the web.  It will include the obvious such as Shimano, Campagnolo and Sram tech docs, Mavic tech manual, Park Tools , Sheldon, Jobst Brandt and the like, but if you know of others please post them in this thread.  I'll then compile a seperate sticky to incorporate and reference the best.

*The universal shoe size sticky will become unsticky at the end of the month as everyone who wants to contribute has now had a good chance.

Sorry, I'm no good at bookmarking this kind of thing (or even remembering what it might be called), but there's a great power requirements calculator somewhere. You enter in target speed and then tyre size, head wind, position on bike, gradient, etc etc and it spits out the power required to maintain that speed under those conditions. Anyone ?

Fix Me Up magic gear calculator for riding fixed on bikes with vertical dropouts
 Fix me up gear calculator is a program that calculates possible gear sizes for any chainstay length. It takes the trial-and-error out of choosing a sprocket-chainring combination when setting up a single speed or fixed gear, and can calculate magic gears.

Mike Sweatman's  'Disraeli Gears' website has an enormous archive of documentation related to derailleurs. It also contains good scans of SunTour and Shimano catalogues from the 1980s (amongst other things)

you can wallow for hours in nerdy retro-tech heaven....
