    If anything, a speed difference may be encountered from the big difference in aerodynamics but that's about it.

    And now the two M6 bolts that hold the caliper on are in tension and become new failure points.

    I have to agree with you. If you have a process that is continually being improperly peformed by the average end user, is it really correct to blame it on the average end user or more correct to...

    I'll toss in my vote for this exact pump. It's got a gauge and a tiny little foot-wedge along with the folding handle to make pumping easier. I have one that i use in lieu of CO2 cartridges on my...

    BB7s don't self-center or compensate themselves at all. Only one pad moves. That means to get reasonable lever action without rubbing you have to adjust the caliper so the rotor is super close to...

    At your weight you need to be sure to stick with 160mm rotors (no 140s).

    As a provider, the last thing I'd want is for a customer to see any indication that my work wasn't excellent.

    Sounds like you only got the "Maui Cyclery to Summit 10,023" segment. Did you start at the little "Lower Paia Park" public parking area just east of Paia? That's where the 10,016ft climb segment...

    BB386 takes the cue from BB30 of a larger diameter spindle being stiffer but it fixes the massive design error of BB30 of having the bearings spaced so narrowly. BB386 bearings are spaced the same...

    You can't reuse the spokes from your SL+ to rebuild the wheel with a G3. The spokes would be too short to use on the G3 since it has a 17mm lower flange diameter than the SL+.
