Buy and Sell - Public / For Sale: Renthal 35mm fat bars
« Last post by saccades on 09, August, 2022, 09:54:19 PM »
Black, aluminium fat bars for 35mm stem. They are 40mm riser and have been cut down by Expert cycles to 780mm.

Great condition, never crashed, never raced. Only selling as I prefer the carbon bars that came with the bike.

If it's at the end it's probably more than likely that air got into the oil!! Just as Pawel said, a lower service should sort it out!!

thanks lads, @Glen, the squelching is mostly at the end
@Pawel, I guess that the shop is the sensible choice :-)

You might not be far off 50 hours first mini service Frank. Might be worth doing and this will sort it out surely

Is it squelching only at the start of compression or all the way down the fork?

Tech Talk - Public / Re: Garmin Edge530/830 opinions???

Yeah, I'd almost given up on the GPS but then went of a short loop in Slieve Bloom. I did managed a short loop, but it was a lot shorter than planned. I think that's where the GPS would have done well.

Also checked out the price of the Garmin Edge 130 Plus, best price I found was €181. In the same place the Edge 530 is only €28 extra, and the Edge 830 is only €109 extra. Feel like it's only a small saving for a large drop in specs.

I logged in so site had my real address, then prices changed. Think caused by difference VAT rate in France.
