I have found the throw on Shimano 9s shifters to be tough for people with really small hands. My wife complained about grinding on shifts and it was because she has difficulty pushing the levers far...

If it looks new, don't do much. Inspect the wheels visually. Check the trueness of the wheel. If you have a spoke tensiometer, use that to check tension. Otherwise do a casual check to make sure...

Agree with a lot of the advice above: use the Stan's yellow tape or the Velocity equivalent, which are lower profile than Velox. Veloplugs are probably not the best idea for the new tubeless-ready...

Sure but you would need a chain tensioner in this case. An old derailleur would do the job too.

Since you will need new spokes, why not get a new rim and have an extra wheel? You will be happy to have it when you put your PowerTap in for service. If cost is the concern, you can get a 24h...

A hair blow dryer works fine in lieu of a heat gun. Actually I probably prefer the dryer. If there is any adhesive residue it comes off easily with Goo Gone or similar (use a little heat in...

If you look at Mavic's techdocs for this rim (www.tech-mavic.com), they say 70-90 for both sides of a front wheel or the drive side of a rear wheel. Pretty much everyone will tell you that you can...

VAR, Felco, Cyclus, EVT, Shimano (if you swing that way). In general I go with Park with exceptions on a case-by-case basis such as Felco cutters. IMO Park provides industry leading customer service.
