Normally, it doesn't but there are some rare pieces that do support three wheels. I just bought one (Shimano 600 Arabesque), I haven't installed it yet, but it seems to fit. Thanks to Booker for his input.
Try using something like Gt85 to get rid of any muck that may be inside, this normally works but if it does not then try a thicker bike oil but would not recommend taking it apart any more as some of these bolts can be incredibly soft and easily brocken.
If you want to change the chainset, you will need to change the bottom bracket. You can change it to a square taper Shimano bottom bracket or something more advanced like a external bottom bracket. (113/68) 113mm is the length and 68 is the width of the shell.
You would not need to change the rotors as they are both 160mm rotors but both are compatible if you want to change them.
Yes, this will work. Just get any Shimano mountain rear derailleur... SLX, deore, LX, xt, xtr, etc... EDIT: This only applies for 9 speed and lower. Here's a quote from Sheldon Brown. Within a given brand/style of rear derailer, all "speed numbers" are generally interchangeable. This applies to all indexable models, basically everything manufactured ...
Usually racing front derailleurs like an arabesque will not allow the extra tolerance for a third ring. With that being said, the only way to know for sure is to try it. One thing to keep in mind is that the spindle length on your bottom bracket affects this as well. While your derailleur may have the extra tolerance to fudge it in some cases, if your ...
As long as you existing rotors are in good condition and thicker than 1.6mm (minimum safe thickness) you should have no issue with using them with the Shimanos. There doesn't seem to be an industry standard specification for rotor thickness but it is generally taken to be between 1.8mm - 2.0mm. The new callipers will self adjust to the rotor width. Clean ...
The item you removed (BB-06-PSPL - 113/68) is the bottom bracket. The 113/68 means that it s 113mm spindle length and 68mm bottom bracket length this means that it is a standard size and will be easily replaced. The PSPL means that it has a Powerspline interface with the cranks, this is a Truvativ/ SRAM proprietry system so if you wish to keep the cranks you ...
Normally to change the gearing you only need to increase and decrease the size of the cogs. The number of gears determines the difference between gear shifts, ot the end gears. No need to upgrade to 24 speed. I advise caution making too many changes as its a lower end bike and parts are expensive. Overall the bike looks reasonably geared for a road ...
First, make sure your bike is fit properly - with a bad fit, your efficiency is likely lousy. More sprockets is not necessarily going to make you go faster/easier - changing gear appropriately and becoming more physically fit will (along with better selected sprockets sizes - we went ages before the Gillette razor-blade increase in rear sprockets...). Most ...
Get some WD40 or PB blaster and just shoot the heck out of it. Do this a few times while manually moving it with your hands and it should start moving again. Throw some chain lube in there afterwards to keep it moving nice and clean.
Go for Shimano 105 instead of Ultegra. The levers are basically the same (alu instead of carbon) at a lesser expense with the same cable routing along the bar as with Ultegra. I run a cross-bike with 105 and a road-bike with Ultegra. Both work without a noticeable difference.
The cable routing is different. Ultegra is designed to allow both cables to route along the handlebar (instead of that cable sticking out the side of the brake lever like on Sora), to give you a cleaner look and less chance of the cable getting in your way. Ultegra is higher quality than Sora. It should shift a bit better, or at least go more miles before ...
Something like this?: Taken from here.
Also worth noting that you don't have to stick with Shimano parts - I use SRAM chains on my MTB and road bikes (9 and 10 speeds respectively). SRAM 9 speed chains come with a reusable powerlink connector that's much handier than the Shimano pin.
As long as you use a ten speed chain it shouldn't matter which group you take it from. Normally the higher priced ones are bit lighter but the additional price often does by far not match the lower weight. Also the higher priced ones might last not that long due to the lighter material. Therefore if it's for a bike where you know that it will see some dirt ...
Simplest 'good' solution is probably getting a conversion cassette - campagnolo spacing but with a shimano spline so it'll fit on your existing hub. This one from ambrosio would probably do the trick - http://www.probikekit.com.au/bicycle-cassettes-sprockets/ambrosio-cassette-shimano-fit-for-campagnolo-10-speed/10768425.html Things will probably be harder ...
I haven't found any campy replacement freehub for a deore... esp since shimano uses different incompatible freehub bodies for its different hubs, and Deore being a mountain group, campy being mostly road, I don't see there being any market for such a conversion. That being said, if you find a replacement campy rear hub with a similar flange size, you could ...
You should use Shimano mountain bike shifters (Acera, Alivio, Deore, etc.) which have the same # of chainrings and same # of cogs on the cassette. So if you're running a triple in the front and a 9 speed cassette in the back, you want a 3x9 shifter set. The road bike ones (Sora, Tiagra, 105, Claris, Ultegra, etc. - even flat bar ones, like the Sora flat ...
