So what're the best tubs to get then? 

31/05/2012 at 13:14

If I change the tyres on my mtb from 1.95 knoblies to 1.5 roadies do I have to change the innertube too, or can I use the old one from the knoblies?

31/05/2012 at 13:30

depends on the tube

they should be marked for the applicable size range - if it says 1.5 to 2.1 then you'll be fine but if not get get tubes suited to the tyre size

Afternoon bike brains.

I have an option of borrowing stil's chink zips  (I think 60cm rims) for Outlaw. Question is, should I?

I am a bike muppet and would need to try and change the tryres beforehand ( I saw what a meal stil made of it!)

Bring them but decide on the day (ish). Struggled with 30mm front on Sat!

Is the decide on the day (ish) due to weather?

It would be down to the wind more than anything else. Or definitely stick on one the back, as that won't be the problem one.

Hmm. Will just sticking in on the back make me more aero and faster?

I am in serious danger of being "all the gear and no idea" if I have bling wheels.

Hello

This isn't technically a tri bike question, but... does anyone know anything about folding bikes. I'm changing jobs and the most sensible way of commuting is 1mile ride to the station, 20mins on train, 1 mile ride t'other end. (much more civilised than mucking about with the M1.)

It's not going to be practical to lug my road bike on the train, over the station bridge etc. So I need a alternative. Are Bromptons really the bees knees or can I get away with some thing cheaper? Does anyone use one regularly and could offer some advice?

Help!!!!

My lovely borrowed carbon clinchers are making a rattling sound. It is the front wheel as it goes when I put my old one back on. The noise is only there when I am on the bike (ie. weighted).

I have checked the obvious stuff (brakes, computer thingy, loose rubber).

Any ideas or advoec?

27/06/2012 at 15:30

have you checked the spokes to make sure they're all tight??   and what happens if you shake the wheel when it's not in the frame - any noises???  and if you grab the hub when it's out of the frame and rotate the wheel, does it make a noise??

27/06/2012 at 15:33

bearing ?

Spokes all tight.
No noise when I shake it
No sound when its out of the frame.

27/06/2012 at 16:10

out of the frame and hold it by the skewer and shake it ?

(Think you should just buy a new pair of wheels)

Somethings loose in the rim ? Take off the tyre and see if you can get it to fall out through the valve hole ? 

Its not the innertube valve is it rattling ? put a wrap of tape round it before you put it back in ?
