Fresh from YouTube is another Hambini Bottom bracket install. This time in a Yoeleo R12. This is a revision of the R11 bike Frame that The Unabiker had issues with and it highlights the problems of frame tolerances. The bottom bracket is made to much tighter tolerances than the frames they are pushed into.
Here is a video posted by The Unabiker on YouTube. In it he describes some of the problems he had with his Yoeleo frame and specifically trying to fit a Hambini Bottom Bracket into it. Yoeleo have historically had decent tolerances but it shows that nobody is immune. The check to get it fixed and […]
Campagnolo cranksets have a reputation of being well engineered and robust but they are not without their problems and quirks. This post explains one of those in detail which surrounds the myths of the preload system, the “safety clip”, the system stiffness (or lack of it) and the involved nature of a bearing replacement. Campagnolo Ultra Torque is found on many of the upper range of Cranksets including the Super Record and Record.
StylishRiding, a viewer of the Hambini Channel videoed their installation of a Hambini BB30A to Shimano bottom bracket and uploaded it. You can view it below
T47 is examined in engineering detail. Some of the quirks associated with the standard, the weights and the frame geometry limitations are discussed. Trek, Felt and Factor variations of T47 dimensional standars are covered.
Introduction Grease is an often talked about but little understood. It can have a significant impact on performance on a bike specifically in the area of transmission frictional losses (watts). This guide covers the practical aspects of using grease as a lubricant and as an assembly aid. Following a number of questions arising from a […]
The Winspace Hyper X 50mm are highly regarded, they have very good aerodynamic properties and are comfortably the fastest wheels you can buy in 50mm rim depth. The Winspace hubs use standard 6000 series bearings of common sizes. This video shows you how to remove the bearings and replace them if they are worn or […]
This Scott Foil had it’s aerodynamic credentials severely burned on the Hambini barbecue. Staggeringly, the frame was the user’s second. The first was found to be out of specification. This frame was also found to be out of specification.
A user from Australia sent these video clips in showing the before and after on his SRAM Quarq dub power meter crank set axle. As always, an unloaded test is not a good indicator of loaded performance but it does highlight good alignment Here is after
