Shimano Sora R3000 9 Speed Road Bike Front/Rear Mech Derailleur.
Part of a used groupset I bought but I needed a short rear mech and band on front.
The rear is the GS/medium cage for cassettes up to 34t.
Well used. Rear has some marks and for both the screws show...
I've got a faulty Di2 Shimano RD-6870 rear derailleur, medium cage.
the item is faulty. The derailleur causes the di2 battery to go flat in a couple of days.
My local bike shop did a diagnostic test, and found that this derailleur was the cause of my flat battery issues.
When I go into a bike shop and look at the wall of tools—usually Park tools—I am stricken with a serious bout of envy. My own shop tools all fit into one small carry box, though it has many of the necessaries like a torque wrench, chain tools, spoke wrench, etc.
I've long considered the...
Skip this thread if you already know enough to follow the directions in the box.
Okay, for the rest of us who plunge right in and do what our manly sense tells us is right and after-all-I've-done-this-a-million-times-before:
A few months ago, I destroyed my beautiful old Trek. Please...
I recently purchased an 80’s road bike, I know little about Campagnolo and apart from the logo I cannot see any other info/serial number so can anyone identify what model rear derailleur this is please.
#Thx4Ride parallelogram derailleur kit for an old frame (non P Line) to run 7 speed
Stock frame compatible
Stock Wheelset compatible up to 4 cogs (with #MiniMODs yet to release X4UnibodyCogset or X3+1 setup. 5 cogs might be possible)
7 speed in this demo video was on dedicated wheelset
I need to replace my Shimano RD2300 dérailleur as it's making rattling noises and The pantograph pins also seem to be worn, and it's not reliable changing down.
I was wondering if I can replace it with a Shimano Claris mech.
My Allez has been skipping gear and making a rattling sound from the cage on the derailleur. I have fitted a new chain and cassette, but the gears still skip. On closer examination, I think that (a) the jockey wheel bearing are a bit worn (They wobble) and (b) the pins that hold the body...
Quick question, I was checking for the source of a creak, and noticed that the screws that hold the derailleur hanger onto the frame felt very loose. The frame is aluminium, and the screws look like steel, so don't want to risk stripping the threads on the frame. Anyone know what’s the...
Ok, random question time I'm on the lookout for a 12 speed SRAM Eagle Derailleur for a possible future project and came across this one on Ebay Kleinanzeigen (German Gumtree).
Can I assume that the spring that is housed in the rear derailleur barrel adjuster actually helps with the cable tension.
I lost the damn thing whilst replacing the cable!
Basically, my smaller cogs are jumping, despite adjustments (two evenings after two rides)
And, what does the (B-Tension)...
This is on an 87 Raleigh Randonneur. I've just changed the 6speed block to 7 (the dizzy heights of 1989 now) it went in fine with the addition of a washer on the drive side to space it a little. I have put SIS dt shifters on which came from a 7sp Galaxy recently so I know they work.
1 - Cateye Velo 9 bike computer, still in box (which is a bit tatty and written on), but unused and complete with all tie cables, magnet & instruction booklet. A new battery will be supplied as the clock has been running for some time
2 - Shimano Tiagra flatbar shifter & derailleur (FD4700)...
Rear derailleur cable snapped today out on a ride.
8 speed sora (sora is now 9 speed but bike is from 2013 so was sora at time).
On taking old cable off to replace new cable I couldn't get the barrel adjuster back in.
On inspection the thread on the actual derailleur seems to be...
I've just been given an old bike which i thought I could get working.
The chain was actually snapped, so I managed to get it fitted again and borrowed a friend's chain tool to close it.
I repaired a puncture on the front and was all set to give it a try.
The rear gears don't change .. on...
A new company in Belgium has come up with a very clever replacement hub gear that does away with the front derailleur. It's controlled by Bluetooth and can even shift under full load:
Could this be a game changer?
This happened on my ride to work yesterday dinnertime
I was just exiting a roundabout too, thankfully not too busy, as it was rather an undignified (& rapid) stop!!
Aberford Road, at the junction with Bar Lane, if anyone knows Wakefield
I didn't take a photo of it, in the...
I have a 2014 105 10 speed groupset, and have just upgraded my cassette from an 11-30 to 11-32. I got a new chain at the same time, however I didn't realise I had to also get a larger derailleur.
I'm not up to speed on these things, so how can I tell which dersilleur is correct - as I also...
I have a rather high mileage 9 speed Shimano Ultegra Rear Derailleur and the Lower Jockey Wheel retaining screw will not tighten or bite.
As a result, the jockey wheel was only held by the one (outer) side and was not locked in to the inner side.
It had worked loose.
If I remove the lower...
