comment Spoke tension - is a left tilt ok to prevent explosion?
@Vorac I'm not trusting my tension measuring tool. I'm currently building a frame where I can install a spoke and increase the tension according to a scale. Then I can evaluate if the relative values from the tensiometer chart are correct. As soon as this is done, I will give you more feedback.

@markd it is slightly asymentrical in the frame. However, modern brakes have an adjustment screw to shift the brake center a few mm to the left.

@DanielRHicks The nipples are stable, but the spoke breaks inside of the nipple, hence if you look into the nipple from the side that the spoke was screwed in, you see a few unused nipple threads followed by the broken off spoke threads. This is tipically a sign of to loose spoke tension.

comment Brakepads are burning tyres out
Can you post a picture? Maybe from the front but slightly rotated to one side, that we can see the pads and the rims. Best break at the same time, that the pads touches the rims.

Can you also post which kind of insulin you use at what times? What kind and how much basal insulin do you use? Before bedtime? Do you eat after your workout, or does your level rise without injecting or does the level rise on its own with no food?

revised Do skilled cyclists really “use the front brake alone probably 95% of the time”?
