I have a broken STI for triple chain ring but still would work for double chain ring. I would like to ask about the measurement of my present bottom bracket spindle used in conjunction with my triple chain ring. I'll be replacing it with a couble chain ring that fortunately I have already. I just need to buy the correct spindle length. I went to LBS this morning but they're clueless about bottom bracket specification.
My bike is a road bike and I'm presently using a sealed cartridge bottom bracket with tapered spindle.
Are all Tiagra Brake Lever/Shifter can be used for triple chain ring or any specific model number only. Most LBS confused me by saying that Tiagra shifter is only for double chainring, only a few LBS claimed that Tiagra can be used with triple chainring. I don't want to buy such a thing if I'm not sure whether I can use it or not. I already installed triple chain ring in my road bike and the next thing I have to do is to replace my shifter. Also, do I need to change my front derailluer? I'm presently using a Shimano Sora.
Anybody knows of a roadie brake lever / shifter for eight-speed sprocket as well as for triple chainring?
I'm a roadie that uses eight-speed sprocket with double chain ring (39/53). I'm using an old Shimano STI (brake lever slash shifter). I'm upgrading to triple chain ring (30/42/52) for a very important reason. My LBS (or any other LBS I can find here in Manila) only recommends Triple Tiagra for shifter (which I think the only stock available here in the Philippines). The Tiagra shifter is for 9-speed sprocket that LBS also suggested that I may be upgrading to 9-speed cassette and a freehub too. I'm not using a cassette sprocket. I'm using a threaded hub with 8-speed freewheel sprocket and I only want to spend for the brake lever / shifter.
Anybody knows here where to find or is there such a thing as a brake lever / shifter for 8-speed sprocket as well as triple chain ring? If there is, please let me know where I can find/outsource them. I tried to search the web but to no avail.1 AnswerCycling1 decade ago
I'd like to replace the knobby tires with something so slim since I'm only using the bike to squeeze through urban traffic...3 AnswersCycling1 decade ago
I bike commute daily and I always bring two pair of shoes, one for cycling and one for walking. But since I'm on limited cargo space as I only have a back pack with me, I wanted to have only a single pair of shoes where when I get down from my bicycle arriving to work, I can use the same shoes to walk here and there.8 AnswersCycling1 decade ago
Is there any road bike hub like Phil Wood (uses cartridge bearing) but costs only more or less US$40?
A good Phil Wood brand costs US$409.00 (for the rear hub) which is just too heavy for my pocket. I've heard that there are cheaper brand but are of the same specification (i.e. cartridge bearing) but I don't have any idea where to find. Please help...
