    Sounds to me like the new cassette is slightly off laterally (side to side) from the original cassette. I suggest following the rear derailer setup/adjustment instructions on the Park Tool website.

    My 820 has a stock 1" threaded rigid fork.

    I did put a Dimension rigid fork on my wife's MTB commuter, in 1 1/8" though. It replaced a low-end low-travel stock suspension fork that had worn out...

    Use the chain tool ONLY for breaking the chain, NOT for splicing back together. Use a master link to connect two inner (thinner) links. If it's a Shimano chain, you can use a chain tool with the...

    The lower level Shimano MTB lines are (from lower to higher): Altus, Acera, Alivio.

    Before replacing the shifter, try dousing the moving parts in WD-40 as you work the levers. Often the old grease...

    Trek made a 96er bike: 29" in front to better roll over obstacles, 26" in back for quicker acceleration. There may have been other manufacturers.

    ERD (effective rim diameter) is the diameter, in mm, of the circle made when measuring where the spoke nipples sit. Since both rims have the same ERD, if their respective hubs at the same dimensions,...

    I've done it successfully.

    You can also rip off the old patc.h and apply one of the longer, rectangular patches over both holes.

    Bear in mind that 700c x 45 mm is equivalent to 29 x 1.75".

    You might find a 29" Schrader tube with the appropriate width range.

    Best to get the pulley as close as possible, without it bumping into any cogs during forward pedaling. Sounds like you're there.

    It's possible to make this work, but lots of things need to align and/or it takes a lot of modification:

    On the original brake arm: Remove the fixing bolt with an allen wrench, then remove the boss with an open-ended wrench. Next, re-install the brake boss to the frame.

    The shifter, cassette, and chain need to match number of gears (though you can actually have a higher-speed/narrower chain). They come in 7/8-speed, 9-speed, and 10-speed)

    The RD doesn't care; it...

    No. Shimano 10-speed MTB ("Dyna-Sys") front and rear shifters and derailers are incompatible with everything else.

    Look for Shimano's "flat-bar road" 10-speed shifters, which will match the cable...

    The rear cables are probably long enough to be re-purposed as front cables. I do this when I re-do cables before their time.

    The slots, that the brake pad posts slide up and down in, are only so long. So, on a long-reach caliper, the pads can only go so far up/in, which won't be as far high/close as the short-reach caliper...

    In my experience, I've had to over-bend the rotor to get it straight. Even if the boards could flatten the rotor completely, I suspect it'll spring back to some extent.
