Daniel S replied to Domestique's discussion A selfish question re: Descending. But I need some help....
"If you feel like the narrow bars are making you a bit sketchier, they probably are. I would suggest trying some bigger bars - just get some second hand if you want to try them out without spending too much money. Swapping bars is a pretty straight…"

Daniel S replied to Keith's discussion Is my LBS fobbing me off
"I'm pretty sure some teeth are manufactured shorter than others to make shifting up and down smoother. Its the same on your cassette if you look closely.  Your chain should be fine I would imagine. The front derailler should be sitting a…"

Daniel S replied to Rid3r's discussion Your favourite Adelaide Hill?
"Aldgate Valley Rd - surprised this one hasn't been mentioned yet!"

Daniel S replied to Steven Ellison's discussion Azzurie, BMC, EMC, Giant, Fuji, Merida.... whats the difference?
"But a frame that fits you right and that you like the look of. That's about all I care about nowadays. Then choose components and wheels to suit your budget and purposes."

Daniel S replied to Stewart Caldwell's discussion Criterion in Vic park
"Wednesday nights is the Vets racing (vlcc.org.au I think) - you need to join their club and then you can race. You need to be aged 35+ for this racing. Tuesday nights is racing run by Norwood CC - norwoodcc.on.net - this is sanctioned under Cycling…"

Daniel S replied to Simpson's discussion Chain life. What is reasonable?
"I generally replace them when they start skipping. Anecdotally, Shimano 10sp road chains seem to get about 5000km and Campy chains closer to 10,000km. For an old 6sp chain you might actually get a lot more - everything is chunkier so it takes a lot…"

Daniel S replied to Simon Lownsborough's discussion Headwind tips
"Compact cranks?  Just kidding :P Your own tips sound good. Not much else you can do. I've found that swearing at the wind, doesn't seem to help, but it can feel good."

Daniel S replied to Alex's discussion Touring/Wet weather bike
"I had the narrowest SKS mudguards (P35s?) and they fit inside of Campy brakes, but only just. The problem is: if you get a frame that is compatible with short reach caliper brakes, then fitting full length proper mudguards is going to be super…"

Daniel S replied to Alex's discussion Touring/Wet weather bike
"Surly Crosscheck. For the the type of bike your considering, you probably will need V-brakes or cantis to get the clearance required for mudguards etc."

Daniel S replied to Gus's discussion CX: Lisa Jacobs, Allan Iacuone win inaugrual CX Nationals
"Also: Josh Smith from PACC/SA won the Masters Mens 30+ race. Josh has been racing CX in SA since the very first race, and has often come very close to getting a win but has always just missed out until now. (Side note: He also built the barriers…"

Daniel S replied to Richard Stevens's discussion why does my cassette keep rattling/coming loose?
"Put another spacer in there. On my CX bike I have had the same problem (Ultegra 12-25 cassette, Mavic something-or-other wheels). At first I only used one spacer and I could just crank the lockring down tight enough, but the cogs loosened up after a…"

Daniel S replied to Gus's discussion How does extra weight slow an Alpe d'Huez climb?
"That's correct. Cadence means nothing in this test because its just a test of mechanics, not of physiological strain. The rider could have been replaced by an electric motor pumping out 275W at 4000rpm and the results should be the same.…"

Daniel S replied to Gus's discussion How does extra weight slow an Alpe d'Huez climb?
"To me this shows the opposite - that tyre pressure has much less of an effect than we might think. Note that his 'low pressure' run was at 3 bar, which is just 43 psi. Can you imagine how squidgy that would feel! He rode at 5W lower…"

Daniel S replied to RD6's discussion Numb nuts
"Selle SMP made a massive difference for me. Pricey but very much worth it."

Daniel S replied to Brett's discussion Does anybody have a good vintage racer they want to sell?
