    Maybe try backing off the high limit screw a tad, or reducing cable tension a smidge; if the cable's too tight when in the big ring, that could conceivably cause your issue, not to mention give the...

    Some bikes sure have more than their fair share of problems, and to be fair you can't always pick em in advance; it's not just down to cheapness.

    Sometimes it's fair dinkum gremlins.

    Doesn't sound all that cheap to me... right now our dollar is getting 75 US cents, and we sell SS spokes for $2 each, and charge something like $30 for a spoke replacement, for which removing the...

    If you've ridden it, I'd expect more enthusiasm... it's bloody brilliant. As for reliability, by all accounts it's pretty well sorted, and battery life is epic.

    What cheeses me off is all the...

  7. The more cogs you have and the closer together...

    The more cogs you have and the closer together they are, the more critical cable adjustment and condition is, not to mention hanger alignment.

    If it's not behaving consistently, it's likely a...

    Well may you employ quote marks on that term in your query about suicide levers.

    Unless you're going for a period look (in which case I'd recommend the guidonnet levers), the best way to go is...

    Those two I posted sites are the places to start (I'm just about to chuck em in my tag, come to think of it); they're in a sticky here too.

    The clunk probably won't cause any major dramas soon. If...

    Wow... a job like this, we'd knock over on the same day, even while you wait.

    As for the clunk, it's probably a tired BB. That adjustable cup seems to be hanging out a bit far... if there's a...

    +1 you want a pump with a hose, like the Topeak. Miles better.

    Aside from eliminating the possibility of bent or broken presta valves, it's a hell of a lot easier to pump when you're not trying to...

    Anything you build up from what you've listed should be pretty sweet. Although given your heft it'd be nice if you could find a good off-centre rear... reducing the tension difference is the #1 way...

    Did an image search; seems the slick way to do it is off the BB, and most others are mounted either like a kickstand or off the mudguard mount on the chainstay bridge.

    There's no conceivable way a manufacturing defect would impact the derailer's geometry.

    Shimano's 10s systems are damn fussy; it doesn't take much for them to behave as you described.
