Gear Talk / Rear Derailleur
« on: October 26, 2007, 05:01:09 pm »
Need advice on Rear Derailleur.
The jockey pulleys on Shimano XTR need replacing [teeth are worn to points ]went to LBS $35 each for new ones . A quick check on Net.$18 each but only top pully is available.
Nashbar has a complete Shimano Deore Rear Derailleur on sale for $18
I would like something durable for touring .
 Has any one had experiences with Deore ? Any suggestions appreciated.

Jim

 :quest:My chains are stretching prematurely.
Both were Sram PC 48s
  1@ 3000 mi.
 next@1500 mi.
  I have been told that Sram 48 is as durable as more expensive 58 and 68 .
Does anyone know of a longer lasting chain ?

General Discussion / Wish I Had Thought Of That

How about posting good ideas you have thought about or learned from others

1. showercap-rain cover for handlebar bag and rear trunk and saddle.
2. rubberband - put on handlebar - stretch to front brake leaver when parked - keeps bike more stable.
3. 10/32 bolts fits eyelets for fenders and racks.
4. use regular water bottles instead of standard issued bike water bottles - wrapped them in colored electrical tape for stability
