    My 500 definitely increases elevation accuracy as you let it sit before a ride.

    My typical ride starts with turning on the GPS and letting it sit clear of big buildings (and of the sun) while I...

    At least with 7900 and 6700, the "Lock Nut" piece has a fixing bolt on it, indicating it doesn't stay put on its own. That would indicate the need for a washer. As for the 4600, the "Lock Nut"...

    As well as my BR-7900 and BR-9000 Which are NOT the same model as the OP is talking about.

    Go look at the parts diagram on si.shimano.com for yourself. It's plain as day.

    You definitely don't need any kind of additional friction washer or carbon paste or anything else like that. If it was necessary, Shimano would have included it. When properly tightened, the brake...

    When you've wrecked hard enough to have your ass hanging out, you definitely aren't worried about onlookers during your ride home. I had it happen once. Didn't even really realize my shorts were...

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

    I work in risk-mitigation for stuff that's significantly more dangerous than a bicycle quick release and one thing we have to always come to grips with is that if people are still getting hurt...

    Oh, nevermind, I thought you meant to flip it around so it's in front of the fork (which is the usual suggestion for people worried about the axle coming out of the dropouts)

    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...

    Shimano has a number of things going for their design that makes them preferable over others in the market. First of all, since you're riding in San Francisco where they have real hills and you've...

    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...

    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...
