    Take it into a shop, ask for an evaluation and estimate. If you have not figured it out by now you will learn nothing of value by fiddling further.
    Nobody has asked and you have not mentioned what...

    NO - tires can be overinflated way beyond the recommended max if intact and if the tube and tire are properly seated when inflated. The bit that comes out when you release the pump nozzle comes...

    The main problem with your analysis is that you are looking at the bearings in isolation rather than as part of a system (the bicycle). Even if the friction is 1/2 as much on an unloaded bearing, the...

    There is simply no way that you are running out of gear with a 52-12, particularly in a flatter area. That's good for over 40mph, and even world class riders cannot maintain that pace for an...

    Don't derail the thread? All the responses were relevant to your OP, not off-topic. If you don't want others to question the (unspoken) assumptions behind your question this is the wrong forum for...

    If you want a double up front just adjust the derailleur to ignore the small chainwheel. I agree you will gain little by upgrading derailleur or crankset, so you're down to chain, shifters and...

    It's important to address this soon, as if the tube is underneath the tire bead it could push the tire off and cause a blowout.

    Odd, my previous reply as well as some others have disappeared. Again, the part you point to is NOT a nut but part of the adjustable cup, and the nut inside the crank arm tightens the arm to the...

    I doubt the OP is currently capable of doing a BB overhaul, including obtaining the correct BB for his particular application - best to get in-person assistance. Also, there is the matter of removal...

    The item in the 2nd pic is NOT a "securing flat bolt," but part of the BB cup. Your pic from previous BB thread shows a BB with flats instead. Whether either of those or holes for a pin tool the...

    Well, that's about 1/4 an answer. How long ago did you email them, did you check with the seller for advice, did you refer to the manufacturers tech docs, and would you please tell us the exact model...

    Have you checked with the business you bought it from or with Wheels mfg, either their tech support docs or their customer support email address? That would seem the most logical place to start.

    Back to original query - If your overall tension is fairly good then it only makes sense to loosen the low area, followed by tightening the rest, but do both by small degrees.

    Why on earth would you not just ask the seller - who would undoubtedly tell you that is just the edge of the decal. In any case how is the opinion of a stranger on the Internet any better than the...

    It is quite possible for the wheel to be physically bent. If you try to true it yourself and you find the spoke you are supposed to loosen already loose, and the one to tighten already tight then...

    Unless you have a very specific need having the manual for each component is a waste of time. If you know how to adjust any derailleur/brake, etc. it's not a great leap to do another. Fine if you...

    A long cage will almost always work. A short cage needs to have enough wrap capacity for the range of front and rear gears. Google derailleur capacity. The person at the bike shop should know WHY it...

    Cranksets can take different spindle lengths depending on where the chainrings run in lateral relationship to the area where the crank arm seats on the spindle. More recent cranks take a shorter...

    How about not overinflating outside of the tire for a fix? There is no reason at all to inflate more than enough to give the tube shape. In 20 years of working professionally I did not even once have...

    I always had great success using a BB wrench such as the Park HCW-4 (with pin inserts removed). They are generally thin enough to fit between the chainrings, one can use the base of the crank or the...

    +1 If you can get a great deal on the larger range crankset I can understand it, otherwise I think it's a waste of time and money.

    External bearings are a bit stiffer, but the performance diff is not worth a minute's thought, as the overall impact when all factors are considered is negligible. It's amazing what people will spend...

    Yes, in '76 there were still 70mm/26tpi bb's being sold. Velo Orange makes threadless BB's. A simple Google search will tell you if there is another or cheaper option. Some study of Sheldon Brown's...

    No, most all recent chains are 6/7 speed compatible, so the chain likely will work OK with a narrower freewheel, and there will be no problem with the chainwheels.
