    I've also found that park tool cone wrenches seem surprisingly soft. I marred one up pretty bad when a cone was seized to the axle on a very poorly maintained bike.

    The only difference between 10 and 11 speed chains is the outer plating diameter. The inside dimensions are the same. The distance is so small that in many anecdotally evidenced situations, there's...

    You would notice a massive difference for example of you ran a longer spindle i.e. BB30 vs. BB386EVO when trying to get the chain line correct. For reference, those bottom bracket standards, albeit...

    Also you will need to replace the shifters because the left shifter is indexed for three chain rings where you'd be switching to a double. More often than not, moving to a different "speed" setup, if...

    When I fell dragginess in the bike is normally my brakes rubbing. I once rode a really inexpensive heavy wheelset for 35 miles just to see the difference to my other set and they inherently felt slow...

    I personally use michelin aircomp a1 tubes and i have yet to flat with one. If avoid REI Novara tubes. Those fail regularly around the valve stem. I only carry one tube. No need for two. Just carry a...

    I check my tire pressure every time I ride, look for possible debris embedded in the tire itself, clean and lubricate my drivetrain when it gets squeaky, gunky, or gritty from road dirt to limit...

    From what I've seen, those are already pretty good wheels. I upgraded from Shimano RS10's that came stock on my Cannondale, and threw on the Vuelta Corsa Lite wheels and there is a huge difference...

    Since PF30 bearings are directly molded into nylon sleeves that are also pressed directly into the frame, you need to replace the whole thing. You can do this easily at home with the park tool punch...

    Avoid extremes in gears that are opposite each other. In general, try to keep a straight chain line. Not only does it avoid chain rub, but it will also limit the amount of excessive wear on the cogs...
