    Funny enough, but not surprising this sticky doesn't really seem to be doing it's job.

    Oh, I think it's having some effect. Just not as much as we'd hoped.

    I wonder if it's possible to set the Subject in a color so it stands out in the list. I know I can't do it. Maybe a mod can.

    Sadly, the subject only comes in one color.

    I bought that bike at a garage sale last year. Freaky.

    I just read this and realized that the thread count would be at least halved if new people actually read and kept this in mind.

    I don't recall, but do new users get an email with a version of this, perhaps tweaked to be relevant to all the "serious" sub forums? I hope they do.

    Or maybe just say something to the effect of please use the search function before starting a new thread if you need mechanical help - this is the only place where we get annoying repetition that isn't severely flamed.

    Great post,

    I found the UtahMTB and BicyclyTutor sites the most helpful (I'm a visual learner)

    It would be nice, but sadly no. However, I think it has been having good effect. There doesn't seem to be nearly as many clueless threads as before. But I might just be mellowing with old age. Still, if you can suggest a better way to get the message across, I'd love to hear it.

    No change. They are and always have been different pieces.

    The "bottom bracket" (BB) is the thing that attaches the crank to the bike. It might or might not include an axle, but always includes bearings. (Nor does it include the frame cross tube - the "hanger tube".)

    The "crank" is the axle and and arms assembly. One or both arms might not be detachable.

    Thanks to this thread, being as I'm a bike newbie, I didn't make a spectacle out of myself asking about what's creaking on my bike. I do agree that this should be made a sticky (or just more easily accessible info) for people like me to read as soon as they see/join the site. The bike acronyms were very helpful as well as the link to Sheldon's site as that helped me pinpoint the "creaking" problem I've been having : ) Knowing the standard info kept me from making what is a common mistake on this site.

    If you are having a mechanical issue please provide answers the the questions listed below. They are ones you will hear from any good diagnostician, but when not interacting in real time it's wasteful to ask the them one by one, or to scroll through to see what's been covered. Giving such information up front saves everybody a lot of time and helps cut down on the shotgun approach (try these 5 things) and irrelevent guesses. It also shows respect for the people offering their time and expertise.

    1. What is the make, model, size, age, etc. of the item and/or component you are having problems with?

    2. What exactly happens? Include what it looks like, sounds, feel, pattern of sound, etc.

    3. When did the problems start, and did you make any changes or remember any significant events just before it started? (In the case of a bicycle things like new part, repair, an accident, the bike falling over, being transported, friend borrowed the bike, etc.)

    4. Is the problem constant or intermittent (comes and goes)?

    5. Under what conditions does it occur? (Such things as gear combination*, pedal pressure, in/out of saddle, hard braking, etc.) *In the case of multispeed bike gear problems DO NOT use 1st, 3rd gear, etc. Rather use "smallest rear cog with all chainwheels," "3rd smallest rear cog with small chainwheel".

    6. What sources have you checked for info, what have you tried to fix the problem, what have you eliminated (and how)? If it is a new bike have you returned it to the shop? If no why not; if yes what was the result?

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me why the stem of my 2006 Cannondale Synapse 3 with all original parts would crack like this. I don't want to replace it with another of the same make if it's going to crack as well. Thanks. Attachment 158915
