    Can I replace my 105 5700 10 speed front mech with 105 FD-R7000 11 speed ?

    How tight should front brake retaining bolt be?

    Had an issue with the front brake, OK set up on the stand but after a short distance, would be rubbing one side. Applying the brake stopped the rubbing, but came back again shortly. Adjusting the centring screw seemed to make little difference. On investigation, the main retaining bolt...

    Squealing front wheel

    I'm struggling to work out why my front wheel makes a hideous squealing noise. It only does this when freewheels and is stopped immediately either when I pedal or lightly apply the brakes. This has come about after I installed new wheels which had been gifted to me. They were setup for thru...

    Front rattle

    My Giant 2015 Defy 1 has developed quite a rattle which seems to be coming from the front and is very noticable when going downhill and over bumpy ground. I can't figure out if it's coming from the wheel or the headset? Any advice on how to diagnose, or are there any likely causes? I've never...

    Front racks

    I am thinking of adding a front rack to my Dawes Galaxy It it best to have high level rack, which I assume goes above the front wheel or the low type which attaches just to the forks

    Braze on front mech adaptors

    Hi, Am I right in thinking that adaptors to mount a front mech are universal with respect to the brand of front mech - I know I have to get the right size for the seat tube. I can't recall a frame with braze-on being manufacturer specific. It's a Campag Veloce front mech if it turns out it...

    Difference between front and rear brakes

    I have bought a front and rear set of Shimano T610 v brakes with the cassette style brake pads. I can't see any difference between the versions other than the brakes shoes are mounted differently to avoid the pads shooting out Does that sound right?

    Front brakes , what are they good for ?

    I was pondering the other day that in the last ten years I can't ever think of ever using my front brake, I've never even fitted a new brake pad, my rear brake stops me fine at any speed and if I used a front at any kind of speed I would go head first over the handle bars. The only use for it I...

    Front wheel vibration

    Did a quick search but couldn't see anything - my front wheel has developed a vibration, like I'm going over a bump once per revolution. It's quite noticeable and I'm a bit worried cos I'm going on a long (for me) organised ride on Saturday. I've just swapped back to 32c Gatorskins from my much...

    Front wheel clicking

    Bought some second hand wheels recently. Spin well and seem mostly trued, but when I went for first ride on them today there was quite an annoying rotational click from the front one. I thought it might be to do with the set up of the bike - catching on frame or brakes - so I then tried it on...

    How safe are UPVC front doors?

    A couple of nights ago somebody broke into my neighbour's house and stole is car keys and mobile phone. He said they prised his front door open with a couple of screwdrivers. Is this possible? It's a UPVC front door with multi-locking points, just like my backdoor.

    Random idea for front forks.

    For various reasons too boring to go into, I've got a spare set of Chromoly front forks for a quill stem, 26" wheel. One of our kids bikes is a small framed aluminium fishtail. It's okay, but all the boys say the suspension forks raise the handlebars too high and make it a less comfortable...
