Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This seems to good to be true. Granted I have never heard of this company, but am I missing something?

Working my way through a half kilo of Italian roast I bought to try. Not a fan. I will likely go back to robusta eventually

Ive heard of them, I know someone who got a fat bike from them. No issues.

I wouldn’t want an apex 1x, but that’s just me.

My friend who works for a cycling computer company got a call from the bosses that he needs to be in Copenhagen this week to make sure all the devices are set up and working properly for a certain pro team riding kinda of a big deal race that starts there soon.

Cycling related question: Recall I set up my Ultegra R8000 groupset a few months ago and have been quite pleased. I was even bragging that I did not need a chain catcher because it "never" drops a chain.

Now, with a few months a a couple thousand miles on the groupset, the evil eye must have gotten to me because the past two rides I have dropped the chain, a total of only 3 drops but each one is a nuisance. It's dropping when going from big to little chainring, sometimes it drops outright, sometimes the crankset seems to "lock" due to chain wraparound (if that's the right term) as part of the process.

Any suggestions on whether its a tweak adjustment in the chain tension? I know I set up the limit screws etc. perfectly so I had thought that was a once-in-a-lifetime setup but I am unsure what to do to fix this.

Ideas??

The "lock" thing is called chainsuck. The ring picks up the chain from the bottom and pulls it up to the frame. I always thought worn rings contributed to this, but yours is all new? When I have had the chain get pulled up like that it sometimes tweaks the derailleur or bends the chain.

On my Ultegra bike the shifting goes bad after this happens if the front derailleur gets moved or bent. The other bike has Chorus and everything tends to come loose on that bike, including the derailleur clamp and even the stop screws. It's been working ok for a while but that thing has been plagued with dropping the chain more than any bike I've had. I shortened the chain a few months ago after discovering the shop that put it on (when I bought the crankset) left it too long.

I also went over the adjustments again and I snug the derailleur clamp often. Just go through it. Check the derailleur position and stop screws again and good luck.

I think it's a good deal, but not too good to be true. Likely will need upgrades, starting with the brakes.

Next great thing - aero cover for your OSPW!



Costs slightly less than a bike.

Thanks, will do. Everything was brand new when it went on 4 months ago. And it worked PERFECTLY until the past week. Something must have been tweaked but unclear if it's FD adjustment or chain kink or chainring injury. Will investigate.

I have the same gen RD but in 105 form, and from what I understand they are essentially identical in the way they set up and are adjusted. I'm always having to tweak mine to hit the sweet spot. It never seems to be "set and forget."

I have experienced chain suck once in my cycling career. Henceforth, and for the past 14 years, there will be precious little shifting. Likely not an issue going forward.
Good luck sorting it out

Follow-up question - is it the inner limit screw or chain tension that seems to be the bad actor? Asking for a friend.

The limit screws move a bit on my Chorus. Also, I found a video on youtube with good instructions on setting the tension and chain length. It's a video from Campagnolo.

I used to do long mountain bike rides with multiple water crossing and sandy ground. Chainsuck happens often on these rides and I resorted to smearing sunscreen and even Chapstick on the chain. Started carrying chainlube for anyone who needed it. This was with triple ring cranksets.
Also, on a muddy ride the chainsuck is terrible.

To me, this is the big advantage of a 1x set up. No chainsuck in wet conditions.

If I could get a Ti bike for this price, I would update the group set later.

Brakes look mechanical.

I don't know as I have not had the problem you are describing. I would make sure the inner limit screw is adjusted as precisely as possible.

My big frustration is the FD rubbing on the chain despite the trim positions. That said, I avoid big/big and small/small. I'm always having to make little adjustments to keep it where I like it with respect to the most frequently used sections of the cassette.
