    This is basically a cheap version of a quick link. To remove you just flex the link towards the removable sideplate and you will be able to pull it off without tools. Having used a similar but higher...

    I used to think that putting a patch on an inflated tube would put less stress on the repair but I had a few failures when doing this. I would guess that trying to put a patch on a less stable...

    Is your deraileur in the correct position for the cog? If not it could be jamming the chain preventing the wheel from going in. Easy way to get it right is before inserting the wheel shift the...

    If I recall correctly, (admittedly, a 50/50 chance) I used some brass water line seal washers from the hardware store plumbing dept. once and worked fine for years. I believe you can get a 9/16 I.D....

    The way I see this post is that since you don't have the broken parts to inspect there is no way to know what happened. There are plenty of ways a chain can break. There are thousands and thousands...

    Since your bike is an epoxied Aluminum model I would be more worried about the powdercoating heat doing damage to your frame. I'm no expert on this but know that some types of aluminum can have the...

    Another vote for Schwalbe tubes. I've used just about every brand and the S brand always needs to be inflated less frequently compared to the same weight tube of other brands. Not a life changer but...

    I have to guess at why they don't recommend the 6701 chains for their triples as this has been a big mystery circulating around the net & bike shops and Shimano isn't giving up any answers. My...

    Yes, both will fit. There were supposedly some failures with the 6700 links cracking so Shimano came out with the 6701 which seemed to solve the problem so probably best to stay away from any 6700's...

    Try emailing this seller. items in store on eBay! They seem to carry some hard to find, out of production Shimano and good prices. I bought some new 6600 shifters from them last year and no problems....

    Only experience I've had is with their 8sp Sigma quick connector link. I went through about 4 of them. They didn't last nearly as long as the KMC quicklinks and the sideplate that needed to be flexed...

    I cross chain all the time when going from stoplight to stoplight. I keep it in the big chainring and start off in the lowest (25t) cog at each stop and as HillRider mentioned my chain is long enough...

    Yes you can just use the proper sized allen head bolt replacement. Stainless would be best. An allen head will be much less likely to get feckered up when adjusting than the phillips but you can also...

    Throw a magnet in the jar and most of the silt (which is the steel from your chain) will stick to the magnet after a day or so. Take out the magnet and wipe off silt then dispose of the rag. Warning:...

    6603 is a 10 speed shifter. You said yours is a 9 speed (possibly a 6500) and plates are not interchangeable.

    My guess would be that the $19.99 price is a mistake despite what the counter guy said. That is WAY over the retail price and I have never seen any Park tools marked up so high anywhere.

    Using a Velcro strap to hold the front brake lever on also helps to keep your bike from rolling (or getting bumped) and falling over if you don't have a kickstand and just lean it against something.
