    I've had good luck with Maxxis over the years, but their sizing is all aver the place. I've been testing some Michelin tires (RockR and GripR) and they seem up to the task. I particularly like th...

    I keep a dedicated SS for SSimplification.

    Mountain biking, in it's purest form, is far from simple.

    I use 'em and inflate all my tubeless setups with them. Not sure if it's been mentioned, but if your stem is not long enough to bottom out the adapter that could be another source for the problem.

    Some rotors are prone to squealing. If you are not losing braking power, your pads/rotor are probably not contaminated. Often times I've found that vibrations from the frame will ping heavily into...

    I recently had this problem. Mine was worn rivets on the the d'er cage causing tension in the opposite direction in higher gears to "pull" the chain off of the pulley. I have since purchased a new...

    As long as you have an easy reference to the valve stem, then you're a-ok. ;)

    I am still uncertain which is the proper direction for the hub stamp. All I know is that both front and rear should be faced the same direction.

    I got the Micro-Adjust 100-5c, today. It mounted up perfectly to my PCS-1. I did a few installations and my impressions are that it still has a little flex, but less so than the original clamp that...

    Too many to name.

    My most common mistake is having a few "extra" parts after a fork rebuild.

    I would agree that the tolerances aren't really up to "American" standards. I probably should have pointed that out in my post. I guess, for the money, there may be better import versions, but this...

    I recently had some issues with the weld where the clamp arm meets the rotating clamp on my PCS 1. It too was a "consumer"/economy stand in it's day. I called them up and they offered to repair...

    After a quick search, I found out that Stanley actually makes one. I'd probably go for a lock jaw version, though.

    Seems like a lot of work if you had to make a "set." Wouldn't it be nice to have thin walled lock jaw pliers? I know the average bike mechanic turns their nose up at anything less than precision...
