    creaking PT SL hub

    Yes, I'm sure it's the hub flange/spoke interface that produces the noise. I can reproduce it by grabbing and pulling together two leading (or trailing) spokes on the same side (mostly on the non-drive side). As I said the noise is *not* loud, but sometimes I hear it and it's annoying.

    creaking PT SL hub

    Hi all, a couple of months ago I got a brand new PT SL that I laced 3x with 32 dt comp spokes to a dt rr 1.1 rim. Now the wheel started making a creaking/ticking noise when I pedal, not loud but I can hear it. I think I isolated the problem, IMO the noise comes from the spokes/hub flange...

    Equipment...

    You should go to a shop and try them, especially the shorts. By getting them online you will only end up wasting time and money.

    fi'zi:k Arione saddle coverings

    I'm using an all-black Arione for two years and there's absolutely no problem, I cannot tell a difference between the central strip and the rest. Very stylish and comfy saddle, if your rear likes it, go for it!

    What constitutes mashing?

    When talking about mashing everyone always says "Ullrich". But have you watched last year's tour? He climbed constantly at at least 80 rpm, which is not mashing at all to me. Mashing means 60 or less in my opinion, and anyway I don't understand how every amateur racer claims to climb at...

    are you a true Italian....

    Everybody in Italy knows who is Coppi, Bartali and Cipollini. Of course Pantani. Probably not everybody knows Campagnolo.

    CyclingPeaks Version 2.0!

    I don't know if you were referring to my post, but in case, I never said explicitly or implicitly that cp is a bad software. The opposite is true, as I mentioned in another thread it's one of the best and most useful programs I've used lately!

    Opinions on this file

    Hi all, here is the file from a race I did yesterday (powertap sl). The race was a little less than 20 km, starting with a steep hill, then a little flat, a second hill, some flat and a third very steep hill. Almost no downhill. I felt pretty well and I was definitely pushing to the limit, so...
