I'm on the hunt for some shorter reach levers for Black Ewe's road bike,
I'm after 7 or 8 speed ones but finding them is proving difficult online as most results bring up the newer electronic or hydraulic kit.
If anyone's able to point me in the correct direction of what they're...
So I was cleaning my bike yesterday and also cleaned up the front disc caliper as it was a bit sticky. After cleaning I noticed that the front brake didn't really work, maybe I let some air in when I extended the caliper pistons.
So I went to bleed it, something I have done a few times before...
I put my bike into a bike shop for a gear service last week. I knew there was a couple tweaks required at the rear cassett/derailleur area and that has apparently been sorted out.
However as part of this work and changing gear cables (I expected this to be done) Apparently the left gear shifter...
looking to try and source a left hand shimano ultegra ST-R8000 shifter.
mine has developed a problem after getting gear cables changed as part of a service. Does anyone have a left side one available?
I'm looking to replace the chainset and bottom bracket for my 9 speed mountain bike (Saracen Mantra 2015). Current chainset is Shimano FCM391 (Altus I think) and bottom bracket CH-52.
I've had Hollowtech on my road bike and prefer that to the set up above, but am confused as to the range of 9...
Hey - (3 newbie questions from Tampa, FL, USA) I need to replace my cables because one is too short, as referenced in my only other post here, meaning I don't have much range in turning and I need to but can't raise the handle bars (recently acquired used Cannondale). The brake cables are fine...
Still having a clear out!

Brand new unused ENVE SES 5.6 Wheelset - Chris King Hubs clincher Shimano 11 speed
They were purchased to go on my current bike but Covid has struck.
looking for £2500 or a good offer.
The shifter (forgive ignorance) transfers the chain smoothly and accurately but the "raise" lever needs so much thumb and wrist movement that I fear an attack of arthritis. Can someone point me to instructions for adjusting it please? Down tube levers were so simple - sigh.
Profile Design "Century" Tri bars for 31.8 diameter handlebars, including shims for 26mm diameter handlebars. Very good condition. I added a small plastic bridge, cable tied into position for mounting bike computer - useful but easily snipped off. Now SOLD..

This is getting annoying. I've just lost the friction material off another brake pad. It's not worn away, it's broken off the backing plate and been ejected out of the caliper.
*The good pad in the picture is not the other pad from the pair it's one that's been kicking around my box of bits...
One pair of genuine Shimano G02S pads including spring and split pin.
These were removed from a new caliper because I use sintered/metallic pads and are unused.

I have fitted Shimano Di2 ST-R785+ BR-RS805 hydraulic brakes to my new build but am not impressed at all by them.OK they work perfectly but there is just far too much lever travel for my liking.I've bled them,no joy so I took them to a LBS who bled them and basically said that's as good as they...
Well I just picked up a Specialized cross trail needing some tic
i could replace like for like ....BUT
maybe a upgrade maybe worth while ...tho I’m sure not really needed
if I was to upgrade the original Shimano Acera derailleurs what would you recommend
thanks in advance
Shimano Tiagra 4600 front and rear brake calipers. Complete with two new brake shoes and two on their last legs. Generally good condition with small amount of tarnishing to some fasteners. £15 plus £3.10 p&p
I had a new shimano Bb71 bottom bracket and ultegra groupset fitted yesterday. When the BB and cranks were installed, they didn’t spin anywhere near as freely as the old stuff we took off. Installation was done using a press in kit so no boDges.
The specialist I use advised that it’s probably...
Anyone here have any Shimano RC7 shoes?
Sigma have some for an ok price they look nice, I know they fit me, but it’s the finish especially on the white looks a nightmare to keep clean.
I found some new R321 on EBay that I’m watching they’re in my price range and look nice as well.
Anyone using them and can advise on use in workboots?
So having just got myself a new job I may need to be commuting by bike a couple of days a week.
It's not very far, and certainly not far enough to warrant getting all kitted out for.
So my plan is to stick to the mountain bike and throw...
Hi guys and gals,
I would like to know if Shimano HG50 9 Speed Cassette 13-25 would be a direct replacement for a 12-25 HG50 cassette? Assuming it's just a minor difference on the gearing and it should fit my PR2 wheelset fine?
My PR2 wheelset had a 10 speed tiagra cassette on it but I...
I've set up quite a few Shimano front derailleurs recently and thought I had the hang of it, however I've just put some new chain rings on my first road bike (almost 2 years old), and the top trim position isn't behaving as expected no matter how many times I try (I've been fiddling...
This has come off a bike that has done less than 1000 miles. Only changed as I far prefer SRAM
In very good and clean condition
£22 delivered (£19 if you also buy the shifters in other thread). Payment by BACS
What a clown. I fitted Shimano Tiagra levers to go with my nice new Shimano cantilever brakes on the Raleigh Amazon. The brake lever clamp was rubbing slightly on the left upper shift lever and causing it to stick, so I tried to bend the shifter down a little. Wish I'd left well alone - the...
