    What do you guys use for a cadence magnet? I'm getting tired of buying the little rubber ones only to deposit them along the road.

    Built into power meter.

    However, the newer style cadence meters straps onto your crank arm and the speed sensor straps onto your hub.

    Much nicer than the magnet thingamajig.

    Yes, but my set up is based around the magneto thingamajig. So I need a new magnet...

    I have several wheel speed sensor magnets. I probably have at least one of the crank arm magnets you need to ziptie one. If I do, I can drop them in the mail.

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    I found the one I lost, it was out in the warehouse next to the bike rack. Just wondering what is reliable to keep it on the bike now. I guess the rubber mounts aren't reliable. My LBS has them for a few bucks, I was just hoping there was something better. Thanks for the offer though, much appreciated.

    What brand is it? It might have a slot to put a zip tie through, my old Sigma did. That should make it pretty secure vs the rubber band or similar they come with.

    It is the factory one that came with the Bontrager Duotrap that fits in the Trek stay.

    When I had one I got one of these and it stayed put. The plastic part has a screw which threads into the magnet iirc, I'd add some loctite.

    That's the one I have on the wheel for speed sensor. But the one on the pedal is a rubber band mount.

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    Any chance someone has a garage overflowing that wants to lighten their load? I'm trying to help a friend build up a city bike and I have a CX frame/fork and the parts from their broken old bike. Need a QR wheelset, brake calipers/rotors, and maybe drivetrain bits as it's got an old mismatched 3x8 setup and making it 1x10 or something less shitty would be sweet.

    Trying to clear out stuff I donít use, Iíll keep an eye out for your friend.

    Would anyone be interested in a new Trek Fuel ex7 franeset? 18Ē (medium) frame, front and rear shocks, front derailleur, Shimano hydraulic brakes, Thomson post, seat, and some other bits? All it really needs is a boost wheelset, handlebar, and stem. Maybe $1500 obo?

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    The basket was the selling point. Although I'm in it for the real front brake.
    Found a 20" curbside for the frees. Sadly kid does not fit it yet. So this 16" will be an interim.
    Think I can jack the seat up high enough on the 20" to fit me? I'm betting yes.
    Best way to teach the skids is to demonstrate...

    Thanks bryco13!

    Pretty much done. Did the first ride with her today. Couldn't fit the front caliper on because it was hitting the spokes. Tried a hydraulic unit too and same thing. Was fun with just a rear brake though! Shifts pretty well!Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.-img_20180829_173629-jpg

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    The next time that you need a new bike chain I'm going to suggest that you don't even consider the KMC X11 chain. If you have one on your bike you might want to at least inspect it or just replace it before it breaks.

    About six weeks ago I bought a new road bike that has a full Shimano 105 drivetrain except for the chain. This weekend I found one broken side plate and four cracked ones on the chain after I put 400 or so miles on the bike. It could have really sucked if that snapped while I was sprinting over a hill in traffic.

    The shop where I bought the bike replaced it immediately with an SRAM chain and said they're going to let Bianchi know about the issue.

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    My bike has Shimano 105 components, wonder if it has the same chain? How do you check the make/model of the chain?

    I looked up the components for my bike on Bianchi's website but that might not work for all manufacturers. I tried to look up my wife's Cannondale specs and it showed all of her bikes components except for the chain.

    If you look closely the pictures my chain had sort of an X stamped into the side plates. If your chain doesn't have that then you're probably OK. Now that I've seen what can happen I'll be looking more closely for cracks in my chain when cleaning and lubing it.

    Anyone doing the Landmine race on the 9th? The LandMine MTB Classic in Wompatuck State Park

    I signed up for the baby Cat4 'cause I'm out of shape and haven't done any training.

    KMC makes good chains for the aftermarket. I am surprised to hear that and I can't say I've ever seen a chain break like that!

    Me too! I don't know if it was a defective chain or a bad design, but I'm just glad that I caught it before it snapped.

    The bike shop guy asked me if I ever soaked it in citrus degreaser. I said no, I used WD40 to clean it before lubing. He also asked me if I shift under full power. I said I think I usually back off a little, but I did notice that I downshifted under full power when climbing the other day so maybe my bad technique contributed to the chain failure?

    I bought a new Bianchi with full 105 components in 1988. I still have that bike and I think it still has it's original chain.

    Not that anyone cares but here are both bikes. I love the new one except for the chain issue.

    I'm just getting back into road biking after a long layoff so my power output probably sucks. That said, my 215lb weight combined with poor technique could have had something to do with it. I still think it had to be a defective chain.

    I gotta imagine it's the chain being defective. At the moment I'm a bit heavier than you, and I've never had a chain look like that.
