Anyone know if a dynamo hub with an output of 2.4w can power a decent set of front and rear lights or are they just suitable for front light only and would need a hub with an output of 3w to properly power front and rear lights .
Going to be starting to cycle to the station soon and im in 2 minds as to whether to wrestle by bike onto the train and lock it at work, or leave it at the station.
The station im using has one of those new (ish) cycling hub things which are keycard entry (which anyone can apply for) CCTV...
When it comes to choosing hubs for a wheel build, I was just wondering what kind of options are out there re: shims and adapters (which don't compromise performance or durability) to cater for changes in systems and measurements down the line?
I'm weighing options up for a build at the moment...
Here is an unusual situation.
I have a pair of 28h hubs and 28 hole rims.
Went to build them up today and while lacing discovered that there is NO offset between the left and right hole drillings .
amused - not a lot.
Any ideas folks ?
Yesterday on a ride where my bike got caught in the rain and where I ended up doing a spot of inadvertent CX, my rear hub started making an alarming noise like a bag of spanners, first when freewheeling and later all the time.
I know the hub races and bearings will need inspection and at a bare...
I hope this guy stripped and re-greased his hubs and bottom bracket after this bit of bravado.....
I plan to do a full service on my winter bike over the summer a Islabike Beinn 29 ,I am thinking of getting a hub dynamo for it ,does anyone have any thoughts or experience with modern hub dynos ,what sort of drag effect do they have when in use or when off, is the weight penalty noticeable...
After nearly 3 years and health issues, I'm well enough to resume my project do it all bike....
I've gone for the Hope Pro 4 148mm Boost rear hub. It's recommended to pair it with a boost chankset..... I have read comments that you can still run the hub with a standard crankset without...
In 1986 I had some bespoke wheels with Campagnolo Chorus hubs made. The bike has been lightly used recently and not ridden in bad weather. I noticed today that there was a lot of float in the bearing as the cones can't have been fully down. I think it was probably caused by them unscrewing when...

I've recently been experinceing brake judder on my front wheel (disk brakes). I couldn't find anything wrong with the brakes - disk not warped at all, pads and clearance seem okay. So I dug deeper.
Front wheel is spinning freely, but perhaps not quite as freely / long as I'd like, although...

I brought some new campag khamsin wheels just before xmas. Due to ice etc I've probably used them about 3 times. When cleaning the bike the other day I noticed that the rear wheel doesn't spin for a long as the font. I've backed off the brakes etc, but the rear doesn't spin anywhere near as...
Couple of questions:
Do cyclocross wheels usually feature road or mountain bike hubs? I'm assuming there's no such thing as cyclocross specific hubs?
I'm looking for 6 bolt disc hubs, 28 spoke (front) and 32 spoke (rear), can anyone make any suggestions on particular models that won't break...
I have front and rear Maillard hubs going spare. Fitted with a Maeda Ind. Suntour Perfect 14-22 5 speed.
I know l will never use them so if anyone is interested l am after 25 euros for the lot plus postage. I don't yet know how much that would be but will find out.
Just having a browse at components with an eye on a possible wheel build for my single speed disc brake bike next year, and wondered what people riding similar use and would recommend. The bike will mainly be used for commuting so good bearings, general durability and ease of maintenance are my...
I'm looking to buy a new bike and add to the frameset myself. My main concern is avoiding buzzing hubs, like the Hope hubs on Mavic wheels. I've currently got some very old Shimano hubs on my road bike, that are sweet and silent.
I was just wondering if there were any known hubs that ran...
With my new lease of cycling interest, I'm once again keen to commute into London. The issue is not working at a fixed place of work,but all within Central London, visiting customers
Previously I carried everything i required on the bike, but a slow pace didn't stop me looking a little...
I wonder if you anyone can tell me, if I replace my back wheel which has a 9 speed Sora cassette with a wheel that has a 11 speed hub (105 5800) is there a detriment, i.e. does it working, rely on the derailleur stop setting, to prevent the chain coming off? I don't want to change the group...
Flanged hubs were very popular in the fifties & sixties, but went out of fashion. I must admit I've always thought they look good on a road bike with a decent chromoly frame, but what was the idea behind them and was there actually any particular advantage / drawback to them - ?
My Novatec hub cassette body is showing signs of wear, some indentations on the raised parts, I've only run Ultegra cassettes so was surprised to see this wear after only 4000 miles or so.
Is this normal?
Do I need to replace the cassette body or have I a bit more life left yet?
Oo-er missus. Mine can be pulled off easily by hand although they press into place without play. In a built wheel I assume there is a colossal amount of force holding them in place (and keeping the holes in phase relative to the rim), especially in a front wheel where the flanges are further...
This rear axle has a cross threaded lock nut...which is the red bit....Sealed bearings...On using the back wheel associated with it the cones came loose and I found the cross threaded lock nut which even the bike shop could not release... This is a hollow axle of approx 170cm so what I really...
I currently have Shimano m475 and whilst the front has and continues to put in sterling service the rear Fhm475 is once again on its last legs with worn cups.
The usual mode of failure is the bearing grease gets contaminated and manky and then unless caught soon enough the cups get grotty. The...
I have a pair of vintage wheels, and the rear one feels notchy while turning the axle.
It's a Sachs hub which, when stripped, looks decent quality. I degreased and cleaned the races, but on one side the bearing race is slightly pitted. Having discovered I could knock the race out I'm now...
