Is 32 much different than 28? Yeah I know, 4mm and all. I bumped from 25 to 28 and didn't think it made much of a difference. Maybe I need to switch back and see if I notice. I have been doing...

Umm, no. If you'd read what I quoted, I took umbrage to "riding downhill on a bike is dirt simple". You then missed where I said MTB'ing was harder.

I just located a recent creak on my bike to the seatpost area myself. By grabbing the nose of the saddle, and the rear of the saddle, and up/down motion, I can make the noise. Rocking the saddle,...

Umm, I found myself posting for 100-200 yards at a stretch, at 35mph this weekend on my road bike. While dodging road cracks and potholes. I recall a few years ago (ok maybe ten) a bicyclist on...

Ugh, did 20 miles (1,500ft climbing, 15.2mph avg per MMR) on Sat, went out dehydrated and ran out of water in the 85F weather. Went to do 40 yesterday, took lots of water but felt wasted after 30...

Not sure how that is harder than changing a tire... I mean, I think changing a tire is more physical labor than adjusting the brakes. Have you taken a look at various videos on youtube and/or looked...

Missed this post. Ok, I wondered when I saw the setup if it might be old-school--I did mess with the cup and cone BB on my Raleigh, so I know the tool you are talking about. Of course I don't have...

While on the subject... looks like the same tool required here. Same 40mm OD on the lockring. But on this bike, what are the two dots on the crankarm bolt? Is this a self extracting crank arm? ...

Got my 12-26 and 39T FSA chainring on. I get noise on left pedal going down; I suspect it's the FD rubbing. It seems to do that in in gear though. I suspect it doesn't like the 39T diam, and I...

I know there are different ways of doing this, but at the moment I put the chain into a sour cream container (sans cream) and shake; and pour the mess into a used container, like auto washer fluid. ...

Do you "need" 28's to ride a century? I put 28's onto my bike and it's nicer, but I wouldn't say dramatically better than 25's. Maybe I have too much psi? When I ran the 25's it was not uncommon...

Personally--no idea, not a bike mechanic. Looking at Sheldon's site and elsewhere, it looks like an ISIS drive. Octalink doesn't spline the full length. I did something about 8 and 10 spline...

I've been looking but can't figure out what tool I need to get to replace my BB. I pulled a crankarm off the bike and verified it's an ISIS drive, but after that... I don't know what I'm looking...

2 hours is a bit of a hike. I drove across WY once and I know it's a long drive; heck it's 40 minutes for me to hit Walmart or the mall, from where I live.

Anyhow... sorry, I feel lazy and won't...
