Sorry to hear about the injury Pawel, that sucks . Hopefully it wonít be that long before your hand is better and that itís not too painful.

Whenever Iíve been injured I found it can be a struggle to stay positive but just know that recovery will be over before you know it. At least youíre not missing the summer months of riding.

As youíre fit it wonít take long to regain your fitness once youíre able to get back on the bike. Just donít push it too hard too soon.

Are you able to use a turbo trainer in the mean time?

General apologies to anyone you going spinning with (but sure that's not happening).


Just try and get out a little more often which helped me.

You need this set Aaron. Its a 10 minute job to install. There is also 36 tooth set a bit cheaper. I also saw a chinese version on alibaba for 5 eur but didn't want to risk damaging the hub. You can remove it when selling bike and use on other wheels etc.

I would recommend doing a quick hub service while you are at it. Check out servicing 350 hubs on YouTube, that's what you have on 1700 wheels. You will need a special dt swiss red grease for lubrication. I have a couple of spare ones i can give it to you. You only need a tiny bit

Dt swiss 1900 is unfortunately the pawl system which is not very durable and not many point of engagement. Dt 1700 and 1501 with 350 or 240 hubs are bomb proof ratchet system, you can amend points of engagement if you wish. I used to have 18 poe and amended to 54 and it made huge difference. Anything beyond is pretty much pointless as 54 gives instant response when you crank up. You can use non boost wheels on boost frame by using spacers but not the other way around...


Got any more details on that, Pawel? I have a E1700 as a spare wheel and find there's an annoying amount of play in the hub compared to my Hope Pro 4.

I used this crowd on a couple of occasions  when buying wheels and great service and value. All wheels hand built to your spec weight, terrain etc

Hey Guys,


I got a hand injury end of november and it means I will be off any type of physical activity for 2 months. I am already dreading the coming back with my fitness gone and any kind of strength.


How do you guys cope with it?


Any thoughts welcome!


Take care
Pawel

James, I have the DT Swiss E 1900 wheels on my bike, and while they're a decent, solid wheel, I can wait to swap them out for something a bit better spec - lighter and with more points of engagement (POE) on the free hub.

The free hub body is a 3-pawl set up, which is just 18 POE, so you basically have a lot of play in the cranks.  It's noticeable when you accelerate out of a corner etc. and when track standing, or ratcheting.  The Nukeproof hub by comparison has 102 POE, which is a hell of a lot.  The average is more around 40 - 60.  Hope Pro 4 for example is 44 POE 

Have you spoken to Expert Cycles?  They could price up a build for you.

James,
You need 142mm spacing if your bike frame is non-boost. As you said the 148 is boost and would be too wide for your frame spacing.


I had a SRAM GX 11 speed on my old bike and it was an XD driver rather than HG (Shimano/SRAM NX) driver.


Yeap you're right it's definitely not boost - 142mm it is thanks.

Think that HG or xD would work for an 11 speed GX cassette. I reckon it would be better to go with xD, particularly if you're intending to go to 12 speed at some stage.

Thanks Dave!
