    You probably know this, but just in case, you realize that the right side (which goes on first) is reverse-threaded?

    True, but I think we're all anticipating that even when turning in the right direction, common everyday hand tools (such as a big crescent wrench) often don't work very well in this application, so...

    There's one school of thought that unless you're replacing the BB (e.g., just regreasing), leave the fixed cup alone. There are many tricks and a few special tools designed to help remove it - I...

    Hope you heal well. Get into PT as soon as your doctor and pain allows and stick with it religiously. I think the statistic is that every 4K steps (I think I got this from a Bill Bryson book) of a...

    This makes sense, but then multiple sources on the net that all say that SRAM road group 10- and 11-speed shifter cable pulls are identical must all be wrong.

    That's not what SRAM says. From their own documents, "Upgrading to CX1 on your existing SRAM-equipped cyclocross bike can be as simple as replacing your chainring and rear derailleur. The chainring...

    Well, I come back to my original question. If the cog spacing is different on a 11-sp vs. a 10-, how can the same RD and same shifters work correctly on both? I must be missing something.

    Thanks for your reply. I guess I'm confused about 10- vs. 11-speed cog spacing. I thought the extra gear was achieved through narrower cog spacing, but it sounds like the extra cog is just stacked...
  10. SRAM Conversion to CX1 - 10 speed vs. 11 speed

    Hi, I'm thinking of converting my CX bike with SRAM Rival 2x10 drivetrain to their new CX1 1x10 or 1x11 drivetrains. SRAM's document on the conversion says that if I keep it as a 10-speed, I can...

    I did a little checking and found that the list price of your LHT in 2008 was $1048, so apples-to-apples, that's a $252 increase or, if you do the math, about 3.7% per year increase. And Surly bikes...

    The first thing to check is, of course, the adjustment of the RD high gear limit screw. If the cable tension is slack, then this screw should allow the RD to move far enough to drop down to the...

    I also typically carry a spare tube and don't patch a tube on the roadside, but I do make at least a cursory attempt to find the leak so I can remove any foreign object which might have caused it. ...

    Well, you've had no "loss" with respect to the frame to date, so what you're really asking if that you be covered for any potential loss in the future. If you can delay the proceedings awhile to...

    My $0.02 is that if you got the wheel in true to good tolerances once, it will be easy to do it again after you adjust tension equally. If tension is low, bump everything by the same amount, then...
