    Something is creaking! - see Sheldon on creaks
    I just wanted to echo the first line in the quote above. A couple of days ago I loaded up this sub-forum with the intent of starting a new thread. I was experiencing a strange creaking that I for the life of me couldn't solve and my LBS hadn't been much help. But I saw this thread, and figured I should heed the plea to read it first.

    It didn't take long before I had clicked my way over to Sheldon's site and discovered that I may be experiencing spoke rub. Armed with this new knowledge I went out into the garage, and after a few minutes of troubleshooting I had identified exactly what was causing my problem. Not having the tools and know-how to fix it, I had to take the bike back to the LBS, but since I could tell them exactly what my problem was, they fixed it right away.

    So yeah, for me this thread was great. And considering the wealth of information in the OP I bet the same is true for many others.

    thanks for the sticky! the following two hyperlinks in the OP were broken when i tried them just now:
    Park Tool Repair By Region
    Park Tool Repair Bike Map

    i went to parktool.com and got the same error message when i tried to do a search. so maybe they're having trouble with their site.

    Looks like they re-designed the site. IMO not an improvement.

    I'll change the link.

    I changed it immediately after the reply above, and it works fine today. What problem are you having?

    Btw, Park Tool has put the bike map access method back. Other than being way slow, the site seems improved from what I saw back in October.

    I agree... thanks for the noob tips. The only thing I feel shorted on was the lack of the picture that was so inspiring.

    I know. I had to drop my hosting service and have been too busy to crank up another. If you're of an age, just think "Annette Funicello" and "Barbara Eden".

    Here is a new bicycle repair site that seems to have a lot to recommend it. Multimedia, with clear pics and small steps. Conversational, easily understood tone with attention given the what could go wrong - something the main sites are all that good at.

    http://www.madegood.org/

    It is a non-profit group. Please let me know if you find it valuable.

    To the Mods. Is there any way you can make entering a location mandatory when registering. All to often we get questions where the best answer is a referral to a local resource. But that's impossible if we don't even know where people are. For example, there's no sense referring someone to a US source if they;re in the UK and have comparable sources over there.

    Likewise, there's no sense saying go to the local bike ship to someone in Vladivostok where the nearest decent shop is over 1,000 miles away.

    Obviously a city is most useful for a location, but folks concerned with privacy can list another city nearby to preserve the last vestiges of anonymity if they prefer.

    Let the OP worry about that, and ignore it if you can't help due to the lack of needed info. I think its a basic stuff...

    This usually an issue with newbies. As such, they have no idea what is or isn't useful, and end up giving their location when asked. It would serve them and save time if this were included originally, but they have no way of knowing that.

    BTw- anyone concerned about privacy can post a broad area, or even a false or fictional one.

    Annette is back, thanks to Wordbiker.

    So is Barbara Eden, thanks to me figuring out how to use the forum features. BTW, the image is 400x500p. If anyone has a larger, I'll use it.

    Shimano has moved its site. Most of the tech docs (part sheets) seem to be there, but the Tech Tips seems to have disappeared. If you have a link, especially to the IGH docs, please post a note here.
