"As with Castelli bibs need to go up a least one size, can usually fit into a M or L with all other makes needed XL saying that they are a great fit. Comfort as never been a problem with Castelli bibs, both quality of material and manufacture are very good."

Get to grips with the NEW (2015) Schwalbe Nobby Nic 26 inch tyre. It features a new tread pattern & V-grooves for additional braking & grip. Seen at cross country events & technical Enduro competitions, these are tyres that are much loved & adored.

"Not one of my better moves, first time out in very muddy conditions acted as a mud magnet, second time out in the dry ripped outer cover in center of tire now in bin!
Have had no problems with the old version Nobby Nic's, just unlucky I guess.

"These bottom brackets last 2 to 3 yrs on my hard tail considering the amount of muck and bullets they put up with that's pretty good, dare say cleaning agents and pressure washer also shorten there life, but on the whole pretty good."

Slowman's Questions
 
T.A have been making chainrings for 60 years. The teeth are cut in the traditional manner on a lathe which produces a much better and more accurate tooth form than stamping, which is used by most chainring manufacturers.
 

Can I run this chainring on my shimano tiagra.

Have a shimano tiagra FC 4603 triple chainset 10 speed can I run
this Zelito TA 74 PCD chainring.
Cheers.
