    On those brakes, centering is achieved with the adjusting screw on top. If you just turn the calipers with your hand, they will return to off center after a few pulls on the lever. Perhaps they just...

    My land line gives me the option to add numbers to a list that will not get through. I've added probably 10 or so, and rarely get solicited anymore. Comcast, btw.

    If you run out of options on the BB, try heating the BB shell(I've had success using a small flame, judiciously applied) it will expand and loosen its grip on the BB. A skewer works well to hold the...

    The shock is probably fine, the spring has a 1.5" stroke, and is a 750 lb coil. The 4.25 inches is the rear wheel travel. That frame may not actually need any new bushings of shock, I would...

    Does your steerer have a maximum spacer limit that you know of? If not, then it is mostly an aesthetic choice. Personally I'd use the stem to achieve my position rather than a large stack of spacers.

    I would never think of asking for a different price than advertised, because I don't want to be a dick. My LBS now won't let me pay full retail because they love me so much.

    I work in a hospital, on my feet, and swear by croc bistros. I tried most other types(clogs, sneakers, walking shoes) and my feet would always hurt at the end of the day. Not anymore. If those...

    I get them occasionally. The only sure way to get rid is to stay off the saddle (meaning for me, running-yuk- or literally only riding standing up)for at least a couple weeks, maybe more. Kinda sucks...

    IME the building is easy(spoke calculators do the math for you and Sheldon.com shows you how to lace). The lateral and vertical truing and tensioning can be the trickier part.
