I think it's the exception rather than the norm. But something to keep in mind.

You could use one of those chain fingers to help prevent it.

@ Pilot: no worries. The PITA factor getting it from here to there...

@ Taki5: its usually not an issue. Most of the carbon bikes have some sorta 'anti-eff-up-your-chainstay' gizmo either built in or added on. A properly adjusted f. der. won't drop the chain.

Slow day at the ole bike shop. Nice out but yet there's no bidness.

On a similar note, I just saw this posted on MTBR. What a great mix of trials and AM riding. What a talented rider! So freakin sweet:

You could always try a wider spindled bottom bracket.
It did work better at one time. I compared it against a new bike with the same equipment and the new bike worked better but was not much better.

I don't think it got bent, I compared the new one and this one and they look the same.

I can't do a wider BB because it is an outboard bearing crank.

I called Shimano today to get the numbers and it turns out the centerline of the bolt should be 9mm inboard from the outside of the bb shell or 25 mm outboard of the centerline of the bb shell. I did not measure this frame yet but I suspect it is not in spec. Shimano is sending a new derailuer. They might be sending a new front shifter also. I guess there have been some issues with the 5600 series shifters.

If I get time tomorrow I am going to pull the crank and bb and try to measure the hanger and see how out of spec it is.

My goals: A. not get dropped in the 40+ crits I'm about to do and I'm gonna try like heck to actually win one. The first race back's gonna be the Jefferson Cup. That = hills. I HATE hills. So, basically, I'm gonna drive 2hrs for a hilly group ride cause sure as shootin, I'm not gonna win, place, or show.

I'm about to hit the first peak of the season. After that, I'm gonna throttle back the intensity and play for a bit, then work up to cross season in the fall. THAT I'm looking forward to!

Good Luck with the Crit.

So you got a Husaberg instead of a KTM, you'll still enjoy it!

No. He had a Daytona 675. Bike-less, now.

He just bought a Trek Fuel EX8. So, we're thinking we may skip the 3S3M Challenge and just go ride whatever, wherever.

Shame on you! See below.

How much lateral freeplay is acceptable on a rear roadbike wheel? While dicking around in the garage this morning, I noticed the Bontrager Select on my Trek 1500 has 1-2 mm of wobble. Not out of true, but rather a looseness-in-the-bearings feeling. I don't recall noticing it while riding (its been awhile),but moving it back and forth with a finger while stationary is kinda scary. It has 4640 miles on it with a 220lb rider. Is this considered "normal" wear, or something I should be concerned about?
Should be no play. I'd be concerned.

I guess you and "elchulopadre", on your "turd bikes", can always be domestiques. Pfft! Black and blue bikes.....why I never.

Truth be told, all my bikes would be orange, if I had a choice.

Not necessarily a bad thing, eh?

Working at a shop, some years ago, I took out a used 'berg 501(?). That bike handed me my ass and a bill for bodywork. I haven't been on a dirtbike since.

This is my first time to the "sports" subforum. Be gentle.

So, I'm getting back into BMX.. I have a lower end Mongoose with Oryg brakes. It has the original brake pads which might as well not even be hooked up. I have some Shimano brakes on my Trek mountain bike that work awesome but squeal like a pig if there's any humidity in the air.

So, any suggestions for good BMX brakes?
