Bike Ride Profile | Evening Ride. Strava y u stop recording mid ride? near Kingston | Times and Records | Strava

First ride outside since about October; first ride on the new superbike.







Strava stopped recording... presumably while i was waiting at a light. Can I modify the ride to include the milage? Its only like 1.5k, but still.
It looks like you also have the same GPS problem I do when the stop and go city riding. I need to figure out how to make strava use my 10Hz bluetooth gps rather than the 1Hz one in the phone.

Not the cutting out, I dont know what that is, I mean your speed graph is all totally inaccurate.

Why do you say that? Going from feel, it seems pretty on, but I have no dashboard cyclometer on the bike to compare against. I know I maxed out the gearing (53x12 rings) just before my first big turn on woodbine and the speed correlates with that, so I assume the rest to be accurate.

The elevation graph isn't as representative of what really happened IRL though. lots of slow hills don't even show up on it, but they are really leg burners.

It looks like yours missed some stops, which is what mine does sometimes, and you have a couple weird speed spikes that look like you accelerated quicker than possible.

I only stopped like 4 times. the rest of the corners I had lights for that just happened to be green.

I'm not sure, I emailed the wheel company this morning and asked them what they'd like to do and if they're interested in reviewing the failure. That hub is pretty torn-up from the cassette gears cutting deep into the raised "teeth" on the free-hub body. The important thing is that I have spares laying around for stuff like this and not stuck, off the bike.

Is it one of those overseas hubs?

Novatec or something?

Impossible. They might be able to send you a freehub body, getting small parts like springs for that is generally impossible. Especially for a lower end/non-branded part.

Bike industry is stupid.

Is there a balleur freehub that I can swap over? Time to buy $800 of Chris King hubs?

I need a better phone mount/saddle bag.


I had my phone in a Ziploc bag, with 3 giant zipties holding it to the top tube by the stem. (best place to mount it this way, super flat topped there on my frame)

I doubt it... a lot of that stuff is sized different so you can't swap it. you can probably track down another novatech/formula/whatever freehub though. just buy 2.


haha King hubs are nice, but there are plenty of options that will last just as long and not cost so much (shimano). Besides-King's (MTB) hubs are super loud and buzzy when you coast. Kinda neat for a while, then it gets annoying.

What different sizes between hubs? There's only a few standard axle diameters and hub widths. Gearset connections are pretty standard. Maybe he'd have to change the length of his spokes?

generally speaking (having looked into wheelbuilding for my bike) I noticed there were a lot of different flange widths avliable though they were more or less similar (few mm here or there). also flange diameter would make a difference as well.

means to upgrade hubs with different specs, you need new hubs and spokes, which if you have or use aero spokes gets very pricey @$2+ each.

On top of that, if your not a wheelbuilder or don't want to try it out your going to have to pay someone to lace and true/dish/tension your wheel.... gets pricey fast.

I suggest if you want different hubs to repair your current set and sell them, then build the new wheelset with the hubs you want. least investment that way.

I would hate that, even from the get go. Do they use a light oil in the prawls vs a grease or something?

I am super impressed with the (lack of) noise on the ksyriums. super quiet, and I like that.

I would clean that freehub and re-assemble. It should never do that- which makes me think that it was assembled incorrectly. You can adjust the spring tension, also clean out the hub shell. Re-grease with slick honey or Shimano grease and re-assemble. Don't use wheel bearing grease.

The notches are to be expected, only worry when they get over halfway through. Lightweight and cheap isn't always great.

Ksyriums have their own freehub issues. Only use mineral oil for freehub lube and clean them at least once a year to prevent the pawls from sticking. Also, don't lose the springs and pawls when you open them up. They are like $5 each and no one remembers to stock them. I took apart a hub the other day knowing they were in there and still spent 5 minutes looking on the floor.
