    I tried tire liners once and got one in OK, but just could not get the other to sit properly and have the tire run true.

    I'm into tires with a "raised tread", if that is the correct term. I...

    The first thing that struck me as odd was that it appears to be a welded SLX frame. SLX decals are readily available, though.

    I'm assuming this lever has the spring to balance the feel.

    If so, it's possible to mount the lever incorrectly so that the spring does not do its job (I've done it). Proper mounting is with the...

    I really wish these things were still available. Great way to color a bike without buying a new seat.

    I recently had a sidewall cut and repaired it with a piece of plastic soda bottle and Gorilla Tape to hold it in place. It's been holding fine with no deformity.

    I keep some Gorilla Tape on a...

    Back in the last days of Winning magazine, one of the articles on the back page mentioned some kid coming into a shop asking for a "27 dot 2" seat post. This was as Internet speak was coming into...

    I discovered these the other day, $200 and free shipping from Amazon. I don't have problems with any of my spoked wheels, but the idea of something (that ought to be) bombproof is intriguing.

    I've been wearing bibs for over 20 years so I'll admit that the cut is not as noticeable to me. If I were wearing regular shorts I'd be very picky.

    "Shorter than a T-shirt" is correct length, though cycling jerseys of different brands will have different fits.

    A guy gave me a Hincapie jersey a couple years ago, size XL. I couldn't turn down...

    It's been quite awhile since I've removed a square-taper crank, but with a properly threaded removal tool it doesn't take much threaded force to get it off.

    I'm wondering if an arm could be...

    I like my cranks long (180mm) and have SRAM Apex on one bike; they're the least expensive way to go long. They're often available for about $100 and free shipping from good eBay sellers with both...

    While driving a couple months ago I saw a rider at night with plain old basic spoke reflectors and was surprised by how well they lit up, and the attention-grabbing motion. I bought some to put on...

    Awhile back a car passed me in a bike lane without providing any extra space; not dangerously close, but close. A person in a motorized wheelchair was about 50 yards ahead of me in the bike lane and...

    I bought some 700x28 Pasela PT tires in the last 6 months. One sidewall blew out from some type of cut it sustained. I've patched it up and it has been holding fine. Another one developed a bulge,...

    When I swapped some brakes between bikes, a set of Ultegra 6500 brakes ended up on my old De Rosa and the rear brake pads were maxed out in the calipers and still not quite in the correct position. ...

    I hear you on that observation. I have a 57cm '04 LeMond Buenos Aires (1/2 True Temper, 1/2 carbon) that I used to love but since picking up a 60cm Guerciotti and 62cm Torpado last year, even my...

    I'm not far off from an oil change so maybe I'll take my wheel along to the auto shop and see if they can pop the lockring loose.

    It is mounted on a Velo Orange Grand Cru hub (aka Dia Compe ENE)...

    As for lube, I use plenty of grease on threads around the bike, just have never put it on cassette lockring threads.

    I doubt it can be rust because the cassette has only been on the hub for about...

    No, I've never used any type of lube/anti-seize in all these years.

    I don't have too many Shimano cassettes on my bikes anymore (mostly SRAM these days because I've found them cheaper) but I...

    Cassette lockring won't budge

    I have a 9sp Shimano Ultegra cassette that won't come off. It's not that I NEED to get it off right now, but it bugs me that I CAN'T get it off.

    I am trying to remove it from its first install,...
