After 6yrs and approx. 12k miles in all kinds of weather, I'm wanting to retire my old Dia-Compe 986's, which seem to be frozen up. I want to remove the little circlips to take them apart and perhaps clean them or something, should I even bother?
I have a ten year old Jamis Dakota (brakes are not original) with drop h/bars and road brake levers (not STI) that is my main commuting/transportation bike and I'm wondering if I should get new cantis or V-brakes? I'd prefer not to get those "Travel Agent" thingies and not spend an arm and a leg for them since I got eight other bikes and my wife is getting pissed at me for spending alot of money on bike stuff!
