10-speed hub with disc shouldn't be too hard to find if you're replacing the wheel.

If you want to replace just the rim and can identify the existing rim and it's a 32/36 hole, you might find a direct replacement. Otherwise, you have to work out the effective rim diameter (ERD) which defines how long your spokes need to be and then find a hub with the same ERD.

If you're replacing the wheel, consider a dynamo wheelset for €140 delivered. Spend another €60 on lights and you've got a serious upgrade to your commuter...

622 is a standard size wheel; IIRC 22 is the inner width of the rim. fairly standard.
should be relatively easy to get a wheel, i guess - may be an order in your LBS as you've the combination of whether the disc is 6 or 7 bolt, or centrelock, plus the 10 speed freehub, etc., making finding a specific match online just that little fiddlier?

i assume the bike is not under warranty?

Thanks for the replies bike is about 18 months old so out of warranty. I've done about 7k km commuting, maybe I'm a bit hard on it as its had a new tyre, chainset and cassette in the last 1000km + 2 new chains in that time too. The first new one snapped after about 100km but I had a lot of issues with that shop so never went back.

Any recommendations for where to pickup a new wheel today I'd order online but want to get back up and running for tomorrow! I'm in Parkwest so Tallaght/Liffey valley are handy enough to get to.

I'm going to hit the shed hard tonight and try out the various suggestions.

I'd avoid a vice grips, if it was in tight enough to round the head then the vice grips could do more harm than good. A bigger torx bit hammered in is your best bet

Alot of places will refer to the wheel as a 700c wheel, rather than a 622.

Tallaght you have Cyclesuperstore, just ring before you go but to be honest, if your in a rush and concerned about price, adverts or similar might be the place to go.

Rang around and visited a couple of shops prices varied from €100-€150 plus fitting with a couple of weeks lead time. I went back to the shop I bought the bike from and they'll do it for cost (€50) and submit a claim to the rep and refund me if they accept! Should be back on the road by the weekend.

I bought a replacement disk rotor with center lock, however I didn't realize at the moment of purchase, and the lock ring in the new one is "internal" (like this) while the one I have is "external" (like this).
Are they compatible? can I use the external lock ring to lock the new rotor?

I think they are compatible, I think the thread is the same, it’s just the tool for installation is different!

Open for correction on this one, the only experience I’ve had is using both styles of lock ring on the same disk on a wheel and they both fit fine.

Worse case scenario is the new disc will come with the new lock ring which needs a different tool to tighten it down. (That or send it back!)

That wheelset was recently 20% off with free delivery so worth keeping an eye out for.

Was considering going for this when I was being priced €100+ for replacing the other. Have just upgraded my lights too for winter but will keep an eye on this look very nice.

This one has left me a little bit stumped, I want to swap out the stem but kind of unsure how to get at the stem cap with this cover that the guys in the shop put on it when it was originally cut, its loose enough that i can twirl both it and the spacers beneath but it doesn't seem to screw off as I'd hoped. Any ideas?

Edit: got it

Hi All,


I hope it is ok to look for some advice here?


I stupidly inserted a new gear cable incorrectly earlier this morning, and I any having some real trouble removing it.
I inserted it from the wrong side, and the cap at the end of the cable is now stuck internally and i cannot get the cable back out.



I've attached a couple of pics, one (bikepic1)showing the side the cable was inserted incorrectly from and where i cannot get it to come back out of, and one (bikepic2) showing the cable i am trying to get out!


I understand that this was a silly thing to do, and not sure why I put it in this was. I am putting it down to lack of sleep and intelligence.

I'd appreciate any tips that any of you may have as to how I should go about removing it. Or is this a job for the LBS?


Thanks for reading.

I'd suggest you pull the other end of the cable entirely out of the casing so that it's not causing any twist/sideways force. Then see can you wiggle it back out. Maybe use sewing pins or similar to poke the head around as you do.

Easily done, a bit fiddly to fix, but the LBS won't have any special tools/methods that you can't use at home.

Basically, you need to release (using inner, small shifter) the "reel" that the cable nipple sits in, so that the gap in it (around the cradle for the nipple) travels around to where the nipple of the cable is sitting, allowing you to bring the nipple around to freedom.

Now, the issue will be that the spring in the lever isn't strong enough to rotate the reel as usual, due to the jamming effect of the nipple, so you'll need to help it, by locating the teeth along the side of the reel and, using a pick or tiny screwdriver, pushing the reel around as you work the small shift lever. It may help to have an an assistant work the release lever repeatedly, freeing your two hands to both push the reel with the pick and jiggle the cable all at the same time - basically, you are jiggling everything until you can get the reel back around to the 10th gear position, which should bring the nipple of the cable with it, enabling you to withdraw the cable and then feed it in from the bottom, through the nipple-seat on the reel.

Thanks for the replies cdaly and Type 17 - I've done as suggested, but still no luck.

I spent about 2hours this afternoon trying to get it out - it can get frustrating. It seems like such a simple thing to do, but it is turning out to be anything but!

Going to leave it for today and will start fresh on it in the morning.

Have a couple of days off work and had planned on a nice today, I'll be going out for a run later as a substitute for the cycle.
Hopefully will get out on the bike at some stage tomorrow...
