Ultimate Hubber

Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. A recent review; https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/brakes/disc-brake-systems/shimano-bl-mt501-mt520-disc-brake-review/ for what it’s worth I have the 4 pot SLX brakes and they have been brilliant. None of that wondering bite point poo I had on my previous XT brakes.
  2. Me and the wife stayed there a few months back, didn’t take the bike though. Look that place is next level mooi.
  3. Good question. All I can say is that I have two merino long sleeve base layers that I bought for cycling, but I wear them all the time when I am at home in the winter. Also, you don’t need to wash them much.
  4. The Core Merino stuff is good. I have a sleeveless vest and a long sleeve base layer and they are really nice. Made on China though……
  5. This looks exactly like the Avalanche branded pump I have. Bought it about 8 years ago, just recently the presta portion of the chuck failed, been looking for a replacement chuck but they cost more than R150.
  6. I have a very good mate who comes from Trieste, which borders Slovenia and has historically been in and out of Italy. We have a running joke (going on for about 15 years now) where I call him Slovakian.
  7. Looking forward to this. Tour GC this year is not the most exciting, if we have Roglic, Pogacar, Bernal and Remco at the Vuelta it is gonna be super exciting to watch.
  8. Back to the original topic. I faced this choice not long ago, the decision was made for me when I got a set of 350s with the freehub I required (microspline) for cheap. If they were the same price I would go Hope, just because changing the bearings in DT rear hub is a pain and needs specific tools etc. Will be a long time before this bites me, but I know I will be cursing then. I don’t let bike shops work on my bike, so I am gonna have to fork out for the tools.
  9. Yeah with 25mm tires on the rear I only have just less than 5mm space on either side. Removing the rear wheel is a bit of a pain too.
  10. On my old Hansom I have 25mm tires, at least for the rear I don’t think I can go wider than that.
  11. Hmpf this tour is gonna be boring, and for the next 5 years too
  12. Finally! I have been waiting for someone to make those things cool and we all know Lachlan is the epitome of cool. Could use a pair of those cleated shimano slops for riding with my laaitie. Come to think of it, maybe it is better if they aren’t cool, at least I can embarrass the laaitie then.
