has anyone found any pads that are quiet in this awful weather?!
my original sram pads lasted ages but were noisy, tried some uberbike sintered and they are even noisier!
any suggestions? back to organic for quietness?

got for sale a year old endura mt500 waterproof jacket jacket is in great condition, only used in the depths of winter maybe once or twice a week max absolutely…
cheers guys – will have a look see if I can get up near a store this weekend, I could order online I guess too, the decathlon stuff is mint for the money, ive got a few down jackets from them for 35 quid a few years ago, still use them now and still in perfect condition, worth a check out for sure
FWIW ive just been shop at lunch, mtr shell is…[Read more]
ideas on fit?
Half way between a roomy walking jacket fit, and a more fitted bike jacket fit! Not too short at the front, and not massively flappy at the rear.
it gets terrible reviews
Happy with mine!
cheers, sounds probably what im after in terms of fit then , will see if I can get to a shop that sells them, im not…[Read more]
fathomer – looking at the blurb on the MTR shell its rated at 20000 waterproofness, so similar to the mt500…that could be the winner if the fits good on it too!
will have a look at the mayhem too, just had a brief search of the thunderstorm one and it gets terrible reviews!
Can be found in budget, I think.
Nicely designed, good venting and reflective. Removable hood, etc.
that looks decent cheers, will defo look into that one, very similar in looks to the mt500 cheaper, but any ideas on fit?
yeh am coming to believe the fit just doesn’t work on my body, long torso, and the jackets just too short for me, arms are perfect, but then so short it just rides up on me, sounds daft but I actually dread wearing it as im forever pulling at it to get the front and back down….
ill have a look maybe they do a mtr waterproof version that’s a…[Read more]
I may well pop up the shop at lunch and have a look at what they’ve got ( get a good deal on endura, so hopefully the mtr or singletrack perhaps are a different shape?)
ive got a softshell, not waterproof but great for cold clear days, I do like having the waterproofness of mt500 for when its just wet through everywhere, like now, so I still want…[Read more]
ive got a 1 year old endura mt500 waterproof jacket- which is bloody mint in all truth, but im going to sell it as it just doesn’t fit me, im a size small/medium, the medium was a bit too big everywhere, and the small fitted better at the time (when I was slimmer!!)
so now I cant actually bare myself to wear it anymore, it…[Read more]
I have the same knocking noise on mine too
I’m assuming it’s in the grip2 damper somewhere… My mates serviced them and it seemed quieter, but now it’s back to just knocking on the initial travel.. You can’t hear it deep in the travel it just seems to knock as it either compresses or comes back up from full compression
It’s not so…[Read more]
The chain works on any of the rings I’ve tried so far (hope, sram and ab oval)
The quiklink shimano produce is tighter and only really works on some chainrings( didn’t work on the hope ring)
To remedy the above a sram powerlink cures it
bugger ive just got the mw7 with the boa and they fit me like a glove in 44, real comfy…..bugger ive not had the boa before, I like the idea of no soggy wet soaking laces, but in reality sounds like its up to the job of winter shit!
if these give up the ghost and fall apart I will have a look at those scott heaters, they do look…[Read more]
agreed 1000000000000000000000% only run a shimano chain on the cassette and mech, you get the benefits of the hyperglide+ if you go down the other chain option you are missing out on the best bit of the system
just an update – ordered mw7 in size 45eu (being a uk size 9), and they bloody mahoooosive!!! even with thick socks on they are huge
so unless you have really odd shaped feet id stick with what ever normal size your shoe is if you are buying shimano winter boots
size 44 to arrive today hopefully these will fit much better
on the plus side they…[Read more]
