Nice! You might use some spray-on dry lube with PTFE on the pedals and also the cleats--just takes a little using the nozzle tube that comes with the can. The lube will help the cleats float and...

I'd call Shimano tech support in Irvine, CA. I'm sure a real person could cut thru the engineers' mess.

I've found that non-TR (non-Tubeless Ready) tires' beads can't handle the job. Like you, I got weeping, messing sidewalls and drying out. I now only run tires that are TR-rated. Another problem with...

Did the clamp crack or just strip out? If the latter, maybe just a stainless bolt and nylon nut?

You want about 30 degrees of leg angle at full extension. This is hard to verify w/o a second party measuring you with an armed-protractor. I learned this getting a bike fit. I got one because I was...

Bike trail to beach/pch?

Is there a 100% (or close to it) route using bike paths from Irvine or Mission Viejo to PCH coming out south of 133? Goal is to head to Oceanside from there avoiding PCH in Laguna.

KMCs have served me well. I used the 10.93 a lot when I had 10-spd. I'm currently using a Sram XX1 on my Shimano XT M8000 11 spd.

The Crossmark is a good combo tire for road and mild riding on hardpack trails. It rolls pretty fast. For more serious trail riding, I think it's a tad sketchy as a front tire--I'd put an Ikon or...
