Where's the dumb questions thread?


#2981

5’ drops to flat, break dropout, warranty, flip for profit


#2982

The stoke from making someones month/year is worth way more than the stress of selling it and a coupla fractions of a bong… and way way more than paying to build up a bike you dont need.


#2983

Masi is giving me this bike in a size 49 for a sponsored trip and Ortleib is giving me bags to equip it with. They need to know what size seat bag, frame bag, and handle bar bag to order for me. I have no clue how to figure it out.

Bike is being built next week, so I don’t have it in front of me to measure. Thoughts on sizes?

Top Tube (Effective) of 49cm = 520mm minus 30mm (40mm if you want to be conservative) = 490mm
FRAME-PACK M width = 40cm
FRAME-PACK L width = 50cm
FRAME-PACK TOPTUBE width = 50cm
Frame bags should stretch a little, I’d go with FRAME-PACK M but if you want to YOLO and they are giving you the bags go FRAME-PACK L.

Bar Width on 49 cm = 40cm. HANDLEBAR-PACK S is 40cm so you probs need 44cm or 46cm handlebears since biek comes with Claris R2000

SEAT-PACK L - looks like a parachute pack get the SEAT-PACK M

Basically avoid doing this:

Jebus that seat pack is giant.


#2986

HY Marley!


#2987

Will a FC-U5000 Outer Chainring - 46T work with FC-m8000 double crankset? (The outers are both 96 BCD)

Basically this:

+ = ?


#2988

Try it


#2989

If you do this, please report back


#2990

#2991

chainline 48.8, q-factor 176 though…


#2992

I think it’s 168 if you use the xtr instead of xt. In any event, q apparently doesn’t matter for some people, or wider q is better (I don’t know if you’re one of those people)


#2993

Guess I’ll have to try to find out


#2994

Chainrings are largely Q agnostic. Any chainline can be adjusted with spacers.

I’m assuming this is for some nerd crank setup? 46 to 22 is a pretty big throw. Are you going to use something bigger for the second ring?


#2995

46t - 28t or 44t -28t


#2996

SRAM road dick hydro levers mated to Guide RSC calipers?

Yes?


#2997

How can I optimize this shifting situation:
5700 Shakes + 46/33 cranks + Tail Hook + Deore M591 9sp Dangler + 10-speed 11-42 Cassette

It works ok but not optimal, should I go this route:

5700 Shakes + 46/33 cranks + Smolf Tooth Tanpan + Deore M6000 10sp Dangler + 10-speed 11-42 Cassette

or concede defeat and do a full sram thing? I know it sounds horrible :confused:


#2998

Need more details on this suboptimalization?


#2999

Chain drops down a cassette tooth when back pedaling
There’s a 2 second delay around the 42 and 36 shift (up and down)
Slappy chain when going grav grav


#3000

Slappy chain in the rough is just a thing. Either shift into the big ring when going down, or invest in a clutch dangler.
