    Just take it back to the shop that you paid to do the work and have them figure out what is causing the problem. If it isn't chattering then I'm trying to understand how the chain is slipping. Does...

    Ok, we should cease trying to convince you to do something you clearly don't want like a front derailleur.

    If that's all you want then go down to the hardware store or a sewing/knitting supply and...

    The simple solution that would work is the seat tube or so-called suicide shifter mentioned above. Not as elegant as a down tube cabled shifter but it works, is rugged and would not add to the...

    Well, I think you should take your bike back to the shop that did the work to have them figure out what the problem is. There is more than one possible cause and the best we can do is guess.

    That is a lot of money for a bike with a 6 speed Tourney derailleur and what I take to be nuts (lock nuts) rather than quick release hubs. It is the kind of entry level bike one would find at...

    I'm not sure what "old school" is supposed to imply. That it doesn't work? Or that we've got a group of riders who won't take the time to learn how to use a bike. But that's nothing new. Before...

    I have yet to find a use for the 48-28 and I'm familiar enough with the bike that I anticipate gear changes. There are so many others to choose from. There are so many benefits to a triple I don't...

    If the gearing you want is not available as a double then no amount of online complaining about Shimano not caring is going to change that fact. Shimano is selling plenty of gearing combinations for...

    Why buy a damaged 3 year old bike for essentially the same price as a new one? Makes no sense. Also please consider the poor setup you will likely receive from such a shop. It might be a deal for...

    You can lose weight if the energy you take in is less than the energy your body burns. Look first at your diet before starting on an exercise program to lose pounds.

    In the granny gear he is going to be pedaling easier but movin' a lot slower. According to Trek it has both a 34 tooth chain wheel and cog so it is geared 1:1 right now. Much lower and he could...

    Best way to find out if the Ultra fits is to ride it. However, if the Quick rides too big a different stem and seat adjustment could get you a better fit. And cost a lot less.
