    Yes, its not ideal but as someone who's built a lot of eBike wheels I'm used to design compromises . This wheel is a 16" eBike motor for a mobility tricycle. The spokes are 87mm Sapim Strong.

    That thing is awesome, in it's own unique and special way.

    I used to work with stuff like that, and most of them are not missed here (good intentions, but terrible quality). Would that hub take 13g spokes, and does your machine thread them or they are 14g at the end?

    This is lame, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. This is not imitation, plain ol' copying by Park Tool. Albeit these are obviously much klunkier than the Abbey Tools.

    Yes the morizumi machine rolls 13G but you have to change the dies over. This wheel could be built with 13G spokes but the 13/14g spaim strong work perfectly in a tight fit.

    This trike is actually a very high quality German made machine. It costs over $4000AUD with the electric conversion. They are well made but yes, more generally a lot of eBikes are terribly made and the wheels that run on them get found out very quickly.

    Seemed like there was quite a bit of new tools shown at Interbike that were Abbey rip offs.

    Gattonero,

    Nice one Adrian! Mine arrived last week too and I've just finished fine tuning it; the first spokes of of the machine are going into some wheels this morning: joy! Got the tensio through as well: goodbye Park TM-1!

    Nice! May want to add a drip tray to catch oil that comes off the machine.

    This pair of knipex wire rope cutters just arrived direct from Hamburg. Ordered based on recommendations from this forum.

    Very impressed with the crimping function. Puts a perfect little dimple lengthwise along the cable end cap.

    Personally I do not consider any other brand, it's such good quality you can't go wrong with Knipex

    Just ordered a set of those. It's not often I have to cut cables (all my bikes are hydro disc, the roadish is Di2, and my main MTB is SS) but every time I do I think "this tool sucks."

    Cracking deal!

    This model of Knipex rope cutter has a flaw anyway: not very good for people with small hands. When opening the jaw to cut gear/brake outer, the handles would spread quite wide and it won't fit well unless you grab it in the upper part of the handles (=less leverage).
    If they had a better design in this, and a less finicky closing device, they would be perfect. Still, I'm not giving up mine

    Ha, I think we bought up all the closeout Knipex wire rope cutters. I got a pair the day after this link was posted for $35 or so, now the best price on Amazon $50.49!
