    Planemaker- Can you describe the noise? A long drawn out noise, short and quick, rhythmic with wheel rotation, metallic, heavy, sharp, loud, tinny, high pitched?

    Otherwise this is like some one...

    A loose hub/cone adjustment or a out of true rim...

    A loose hub/cone adjustment or a out of true rim are usually not a major cause/contributor to brake squeal. Look at the dynamics at the pads and rim contact. Do the pads twist or vibrate due to flexy...

    The bearing shown is a radial contact cartridge one, not an adjustable cup and cone. Not always but often these are retained merely by a slight interference fit (press fit). Ofyen tapping...

    Take care when chasing threads, or deciding whether to do so. It's real hard to put the material back on the shell after:) Seriously, an experienced person should be consulted before any cutting tool...

    As Hillrider says. There will be very little ride differences that won't be explained by geometry, fit, component differences. Years ago Bicycling mag commissioned three frames to be built with...

    Tange 900 is a seamed tube set, welded seam then drawn to spec. Tange #2 is a seamless set. Both could be of the same claimed gages. Just like tires, actual tube weights/walls do vary with...

    More details are good. The model numbers get right to the points asked about. Only took 10 posts. As I've said many times before my replies aren't just for the OP but for the others who read and try...

    More info is always nice to have. It does sound like the limit screw was a touch off WITH THE DIFFERENT WHEEL. Bike parts aren't just plug and play. This is why a shop charges more then a flat fix to...

    Well you could bring the bike to some one who has a selection and compare, like your LBS.

    But if the cables run under the shell (as I believe the LHT does) I wouldn't worry about breaking a...

    No reason why the jig couldn't serve as a tacking one for just the ST and shell. Although with a good miter and simple positioning/clamping this is one tacking step that can be done pretty much...

    Since the inner ring doesn't need pins or shift ramps it can be subbed with any number of different ones without much if any shifting issues. It's bolt pattern is likely to be a 74mm diameter. A...

    I should have also asked why the OP is asking for a 25 wide tire. My last post sort of covered the use of a wider, and likely a better choice, tire but why only a 25 wide is insisted on. Andy.

    Finally the best answer as to the size differences. Consider getting a bunch of spare tubes as one time. At work we special order tubes for customers a few times a year. Some riders like valve...

    Once again, Yes. Go wider. Even with the same tire model a wider one will be less flat prone (and offer greater traction, but that's another thread). If the frame/calipers don't support a wider tire...

    Cable friction is not usually dependent on amount of pedaling power. OP didn't say that the shifting was a problem all the time. (although making assumptions about what's not said can be a fools...

    Remember that a tire's life and performance is VERY dependent on the loading it sees. Also that almost all discussions about tires are focused on the middle of the bell curve.

    Funny that you should say that. Just a couple of weeks ago we rounded out a PW-4 on a stuck pedal. I don't remember the last time I did that to a cone wrench. Now I have stripped out many lock nuts...

    Cooler weather often brings other factors increasing flat possibilities. Wet roads, more crap on the roads, greater riding on the edge of the road (where more crap is), tires are that much more worn,...

    I disagree with the claim of chain length not effecting shifting when in the smaller cogs. Chain length directly determines the cog/pulley gap, which we all know is critical for responsive shifting....

    Many riders have chosen the Gator Skins because they do have tough (Kevlar) side walls yet retain some flexibility. For a fully Kevlar enwrapped casing they has about the most flexible casings. Ever...

    I've worked a few CX races for visiting pros and many have this battery powered hand held pump in their kit. Pretty cool to use. Andy.

    The OP says an old Shogun, how old? he says Shimano 600, which version/part #?

    If the bike/gear system is pre index (which for 600 would be about 1986 IIRC) then the rear der and, if still OEM,...
