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
The axes and planes that would affect the handling and braking of the bike are well above average. Machining quality of the parts was excellent. You can see the video of the review below You can get the bike frame from the Trifox Website
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
Joe from China Cycling reviewed a Hambini Bottom bracket against a Token Cycling bottom bracket
This video uploaded by youtuber Peak Torque shows a Hambini BB having it’s engineering tolerances judged. Some key points It’s a BB86 Shimano Racing Edition Bottom Bracket The bottom bracket tolerances are accurate to 0.005mm, that is less than the diameter of a human sperm cell. The eccentricity was found to be 0.010mm (0.0005inch), the […]
One of my viewers contacted me about an issue he was having with the installation of a set of NTN bearings. He purchased what he believed to be Loctite 641 from an online supplier, this was promptly delivered with a label indicating it to be “high strength”. This is incorrect as high strength Loctite is […]
If you are about to buy a Cervelo bike, watch this video. It shows the appalling tolerances the bike frames are made to. The bottom bracket pressfit specification is so bad, neither NTN or SKF will warranty their bearings in it. This particular frame had misalignment between the two halves of the frame body.
