    Good bike fit tip for reach issues.

    My other half had a bike fit recently as was having a few niggles, mainly knee and lower back, plus a bit of saddle discomfort. So he did some good stuff on cleat positioning and a shim that has completely sorted the knee issues, and recommended a wider saddle. Additionally, the bike is...

    Recommend a pannier that'll fit this rack

    I want to get a cheap and cheerful pannier that'll fit onto my folding bike, but the rack on it is a curved shape rather than straight, so normal panniers won't fit. I've already got Altura panniers that I use on my tourer, but they won't fit onto this rack because they have a rigid strip that...

    V brake pads dont fit

    So my old v brake pads are 55mm long and I replaced them with 70mm pads. They seem to fit the rim properly without touching the tyres however, when I try to connect the brake cable again, It doesnt not connect as there wasnt enough space to pull the cable in any further. Please help me.

    PlanetX Shoe fit?

    Does anybody know if these come up on the narrower or wider size of things? I could really do with some new shoes, as my current ones are a bit narrow and my feet are in agony after a couple hours, but I don't want to spend that much money for something I don't really use that much.

    Not as fit as i thought i was

    Hi again, This year has been a funny old year for all of us, and with plenty of time on our hands during the spring / summer lock down cycling really took off for me. At present I've covered just under 6000 miles for the year on the bike, which for me is record breaking territory. It's been...

    BB386 Press Fit bottom bracket

    I have a question not so much about a bike but a bike component: A few times i have seen some quite negative reactions when a bike has a press-fit bottom bracket - what is the issue with this type of bracket and can they be upgraded if there is an issue? Thanks

    26x1.95 tyre, can you fit different width trainer tyre?

    Hi. My bike has a 26x1.95 tyre. It is knobbly so not ideal and noisy on the turbo trainer. If I change the tyre does it need to be 1.95inch to fit? Do different widths fit on the same rim? There seems to be no trainer tyres this size? Could I use a slick regular tyre? I dont do huge mileage.

    Inspired by watching the video below along with some of the others in this series and from different content creators. FWIW I like Francis Cade's stuff - him and his crew seem like decent folk and his mate James (in the video below) seems to know his stuff.. Anyway, as most will probably be...

    Will this rear wheel fit on my bike?

    Hey all. Quick question ❓ Will this wheel with a disc brake mounting fit on my bike that has a rim brake. It looks like the mounting can't be removed so wondering how it will fit as the seller said it will fit with no modifications as the wheel's meant for either brake system. Looks too...

    Road fit vs MTB fit

    Anyone had "correct" brake pads refuse to fit?

    I'm having trouble fitting new brake pads into my calipers. The brake is a Promax DSK 717, it's basically mechanically identical to the Avid BB5 and has two round pads which secure in place with a spring. The pads come out one by one through the slot where the rotor sits. These are the pads...

    (Another) bike fit question

    Hi all. I have a question regarding my bike and the fit. I bought a used Cannondale CAADX about 6 weeks ago, and with one thing and another I’ve only last week started putting decent miles on it. I’m finding when out I’m fine and the bike feels really comfortable up to the 12-15 mile mark...

    Bike fit on a 6ft5/60cm combination

    I bought this Cannondale secondhand online so didn't ride it before buying, but 60cm is about what I should be riding based on a few guides and Cannondales size up large apparently. The next size up, 63cm, has an extra 23mm of stack which I don't really need (34" inside leg), and only 6mm extra...

    Easy to fit Tyre Suggestions

    Morning CC'ers. I dearly love my Triban RC520, but I truly hate the tubeless ready wheels/rims. Incredibly hard to fit tyres on, and I had to send back a very nice looking pair of Continental GP 5000s, because they would physically not get onto the wheel. Hours of pain, swearing, and nearly...

    Gloves That Fit!

    My gloves are nearing the end! I had a bit of a struggle finding any last time. I never really thought of myself as having large hands but then I tied to buy gloves in every bike shop I found on my travels and; nothing fitted. I liked the look of Planet X's traditional track mits and ordered...
