Tech Bench / Kuat Sherpa 2 & Fat bike
« on: June 16, 2018, 05:00:15 PM »
Any ave the Kuat Sherpa 2 rack and carry a fat bike that can share their experience?  I want to carry a Trek Farley with 4.5 tires, looks like all I need is longer rear tire strap.  The Cradles the tires sit in do not look wide enough.  I like the Sherpa because it is only 32 pounds and bike will not contact the frame, only wheels.  Just worried about carrying a fat bike.

Tech Bench / Cassette not spinning freely
« on: August 15, 2015, 06:09:44 PM »
I broke a spoke so I removed the cassette from that wheel and switched it to a spair wheel and installed wheel on bike.  Now when I coast the cassette spins a little and the chain gets slack on top routine going towards the front chain ring.  I can not figure why it is doing this?  Does this make sense?  Any thoughts on solution?  I want to ride Sunday.

Tech Bench / How long do shoes last?
« on: September 16, 2014, 09:58:17 PM »
I have a 5 year old pair of Bontrager mountain bike shoes that are hurting my feet bad.  They look great, put a new pair of $50 insoles in and no help.  Not sure why they have started to hurt my feet.  Pain is right where the cleat is located. 

How long have your shoes lasted, anyone experience similar pain in the foot?  Any suggestions on a quality comfy mountain bike shoe?

Tech Bench / Seat Post Recomendations
« on: August 02, 2014, 02:12:41 PM »
My seat post recently allows the seat to slide back while riding.  I have tried cleaning the mating surfaces, sanding the seat rails to create more grip, use carbon fiber grease with grit hoping for better grip over torquing the clamping mechanism...  I'm ready for a new seat post any Recomendations?  Easton EC90 seems to get good reviews, anyone with experience using it.  Other suggestions?

Tech Bench / 28 or 32?
« on: February 16, 2013, 09:48:40 PM »
I have been looking and debating on new set of cf wheels, any thoughts on getting 28 or 32 spokes?  I weight about 190 and am not an agressive rider.  Wheels stay close to the ground all the time.  Think I would be ok with 28?
