    Biopace should have no impact on crank removal, as it refers to the rings. Square tapered fits can be quite tight.

    The charger on my knock off was defective. Kind of scary inside. I replaced the thin wire and re soldered the connections and get it to work.

    My solution as well. I don't know if it is old grease getting stiff or moisture, but the WD-40 flush worked for me on 'old' freehubs. The fact it didn't reoccur makes me believe it was old grease.

    A picture and details of the rim and bike involved would allow a more informed answer. Front or rear wheel? For casual riding of a single wall rim I would put a washer behind the nipple and ride it,...

    My coldest 5 mile commute was -26F. At this temp eye protection becomes the biggest challenge for me, esp if there is any wind.

    I actually look forward to temps below 32 F when water becomes solid.

    The timing suggests it is related to the chain going slack during the front shift. The chain must have snagged the rear derailleur. Quick link came loose? Stiff link wouldn't pass?
