The Knowledge / Re: Gear shifting issues
« Last post by Brucey on Today at 12:04:01 am »
a couple of questions

1) what gear system are you using?

2) do the cables feel 'stretchy'?

3) how well do you think the cable is running though each cable run?

cheers

While on a ride from York rally we stopped at a bus stop in Riccall as the tea stop wasn't open. Dawn said there's a bottle in the bin. I pulled out this!



And I imagine you found a couple of flutes, some caviar and a packet of crackers nearby.

You spawny git.

I've ended up with a 105 triple, but have sub'd the 30t for a Stronglight 26t (~£10); so have a 21.7" gear, with the 32t cassette.

The Shimano 30t chainring  I removed, is a pretty thin affair, weighing ~30g.  I wonder how many km people normally get out of the Shimano chain rings...
So far the 105 chainset shifting seems fine; shame the TD2 didn't work out, as it seemed a good looking, robust chainset

If it's any consolation, on cycling to Sandwich in Kent, and entering the cafe/tea room on the main square called "The Sandwich Shop" I asked if they did bacon sandwiches. I a reply along the lines of "I'm sick and tired of telling people their's no demand for us to do bacon sandwiches..."

Turns out it's surprisingly hard to buy a sandwich in Sandwich...

GPS / Re: Wahoo Elemnt / Bolt Users

Mine has been faultless until its first long ride yesterday - 56 miles and at 46 miles it began dropping the gps signal for minutes at a time, briefly reconnecting and then dropping again over 10 miles or so, when it went back to normal. It gave me straight lines on my Strava route map and several speed spike of 486mph, which messed up my averages rather. This was in open countryside, no rain, and with a GPS accuracy reading, in between disconnects, of 5-10. Others on the Wahoo google forum have seen this behaviour on longer rides. My bolt has also developed a slight rattle in the supplied mount.

I've never had an issue with the app, used it to set the Bolt up and again for a couple of tweeks, it doesn't run in the background for me (Android). My uploads are automatic via wifi as soon as I get home - works perfectly.

How much charge did you have left on the device. I had this happen on a 200 and as soon as I plugged in an external pack the problem stopped straight away. I think I had about 20 percent or so left.

Not sure, but it was 100% when I set off, so it probably was about 50% as I wasn't following a route or had it linked to a phone. It doesn't explain why it eventually corrected itself and I've used it this evening without recharging and without issue. I've put a support request into Wahoo, having noted several others have had the issue on the Wahoo google forum.

Your nettle adventure reminds me of an accident as a kid. Riding along a bit of off road footpath, big expanse of soft grass on my right, epic nettles on the left. Log in the way on the path, I notice it too late, screech to a halt. Where upon I fall side ways. Lawn on one side, nettles on the other. Anyone wanna guess which direction I went?

Bloody nettles...

As a yoof Honking was what your guts did after a bottle of sherry and a party 5 can of beer like "Shouting at Hughie"
