    Many tandems suffer from less nice shifting then their single brothers using the same equipment. Longer cables, poor rider coordination when shifting, the often wider ring size spread that tandems...

    I don't think so. If the bike works as intended but the writing is on the other side of the part then what you prefer what is the problem? Not all rings have their stampings on the outer side. Or...

    Unless there's a manufacturer's reason to not use grease/lube when assembling many parts it's my first choice to do so. Andy.

    In the search for either lighter or unique post/rail clamping designs there are some real "gems" (as in poor ones) out there. Poor load paths, bolts that don't align well with forces, too little...

    Are you concerned about looking at the bike or riding it? Andy.

    Agreed, do not take the shifter apart! The best option is to somehow remove the cable. Pushing on the cable from the exit port, trying to prod the cable loose from it's current position, working the...

    TT- I hope your neighbors are far from your blasting area. Few like a sprinkling of sand or other media on their lawn/plants. Sure it blows off or settles into the soil in a while...

    Generally checking periods are sooner when new then expand as miles go on then get sooner as the miles get a lot. But this is a shade of gray thing. Depending on equipment grade, initial assembly,...

    Rubless chain run does depend on both matching the components as well as proper chain line (which is independent of the parts in use). Andy.

    A good practice is to not have us do the work to find out which lever the bike is using. Tektro makes many levers. Some share features but some not. Model numbers are a good idea but including photos...

    SP= Have you pulled off the snap ring and done the clean (which simple sprays don't really do much of) and lube on the separate pawl/post? Andy.

    +1. I'll add that the shifter's cable spool is plastic and can get indented a small bit by the cable end if the end isn't in it's seat but instead is riding on the outer surface of the spool. So...

    I have questioned Mavic's requirement of mineral oil before and tried common shop lubes with returning noise issues after a while. When both hubs were re done with mineral oil both have run properly...

    If you disconnect the cables from the shifters you can both judge how the cables and the shifters function without the other contributing to the assessments. Shimano shifters, trigger styles, are...

    Both the USA and much of Europe have bike standards that pertain to rider weight. But both are far larger a weight then you are. But if you are selling the bike then it's the buyer's weight that...

    I had a similar experience recently. Bike developed a on power creak that went away when wet (very wet I will add). So I did the usual take apart rings and BB. Reinstalled all with HD grease and now...

    More data! Are you talking 10 speed? Then I believe that the road and MtB Shimano 10 speed cable pull ratios are different. They're not meant to work together. You'd get a few shifts that sort of...

    And completely clean off the outside surfaces of all these parts as well as the fork and head tube bearing resting surfaces. Then apply a thin coating of wheel bearing grease before assembling. Andy.

    Control cables can effect steering feel. If a cable were to be kinked or caught under/behind something (like a computer or reflector) the steering would change it's feel suddenly. Andy.

    Things like this only count when the bike isn't in the state we hope it to be. Another words when it's not being ridden. Once the wheels are turning it doesn't matter. Andy.
