Call for links to technical resources.
« on: January 25, 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.

If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.

It's not the despair... I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand.

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.
