    Why won't these (old) gears index?

    The kid's bike is a bitsa bike. She's only recently started using the gears on it, and hence I've discovered they do not index. On closer inspection I thought I'd diagnosed it straight away - I'd inadvertently fitted a 6 speed grip shift (because she likes grip shift) with a 5 speed cassette...

    Hi, Recently upgraded to Shimano 105 r7000 about 3 months ago. All fine until a recent ride. Changing gears all seems fine, but shifted down to smallest gears on a long fast stretch of road and then it started skipping or slipping on certain sections of road where it became quite rough...

    I was in the market for a car so I popped off to the local dealer. I saw a car there, nice colour, it weighs about 1600kg. The sales guy told me about the different gear options: younger Sora, tiagra, and so on up to Dura Ace. He said each gear set weights 1kg less than each lesser model and...

    Olive oil for the gears and chain?

    Not just olive oil but extra virgin olive oil. :smile: I couldn't find my bike lube yesterday,so i put a spoonful of the stuff on the chain and gears. It stopped the squeaking and grinding,giving a smooth running sound. Have any of you used it on your tackle and if so what do you reckon?
