Thats bloody awesome we dont get that privledge here in Ontario,Can. they just completely lose there license here. We do have alot of old people in my town that normally dont drive much faster then 40kph which isnt great but better then nothing. Do liquor cyclists get annoyed with the roadies.

Tech question

I am currently running Wilson 30x wheels that came shimano compatible. Over the course of the year, the cassette sprockets are starting to cut into the free hub (aluminum),. Noticed when cleaning everything.The standard hub is a FH6600 Ultegra.

I know that I can replace just the free hub body. Can I replace it with a DA titanium free hub body? I am not worried about weight, but hardness of the body. I'm sure being a heavy rider right now does not help, but I am willing to spend a little extra money for something better.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Joc

First take a large flat file and file any bumps that have formed down even with the top of the freehub body. Slide the cogs on and make sure they don't catch on any high spots.

Next, look up the torque rating for your lock ring on your cog set. I am willing to bet it is 40-45NM. Torque it to the correct torque. It is a lot tighter than you think. It should put an end to the cogs cutting in.

There is a similar phenomenon on motorcycle clutches. The clutches cut into the clutch basket. This is pretty much unavoidable. The thing to do is to leave that basket in there and file the bumps off so that the clutch moves smoothly. The spots where the clutch cut into the basket are now hardened and will not wear any further. It is the same thing with your freehub body. Just insure it is torqued properly, I have seen many mechanics simply tighten until snug and leave it.

I am not sure the DA freehub compatibility. If you are interested I have a interchangeability chart at work and I can look it up tomorrow.

Thanks Trailer;

I did just that with a file and torqued the lock ring down to the proper spec.

Life goes on and thank you for all your help.

Not usually. Most of them get a laugh out of it but there are always a few that get annoyed and think they are being picked on.

Yer best bet is to get a cassette with an AL carrier.

I have several FH bodies with the teeth indentations in em. They haven't gotten any worse in the 20 years I've been riding them wheels, so I don't bother.

Both, mine and her 'cross bikes have SRAM Apex derailleurs, cassettes, and 1091 chains. They're both quiet. My MTB has X0 and X7 derailleurs, Shimano cassette, and KMC XX chain. It, too, is quiet. I test rode another that had full Rival and it was quiet, as well. Nearly all the LBS employees' bikes are SRAM and have never heard any mention of noise. So, I don't know about their stuff being noisy.

Yep, just got a few miles on my schwinn, now with sram cassette/chain, x9 rear derailleur, X0 shifter. Quiet and quick shifts. And I really like the gripshift so far, after years of not giving it a chance. (well, not since 1997 or so).

Ultegra used cost

I've been thinking about swapping the '11 ultegra stuff off my cross bike and running sram. has less than 100 miles on the stuff, anyone have an idea of what i could get for it?

(it being 2x10: fr derailleur, rear derailleur, both STI shifters, and cassette)?

Here's my poor video taking skills from Sunday. I need to find a way to mount the camera so I don't have to ride with one hand
