    if my rims looked like that, i'm talking about the series of symmetrical gashes close to the tire line here, i would assume i had sliced into a curb or two.

    i've been building all my wheels for the last decade or two using only the preposterously overpriced Park Tools spoke wrench and the front and rear dropouts of my bikes. :lol:

    more substantial boot material, and less PSI will approach the solution to the problem from both ends.

    if lever is not bottoming out, as OP mentioned, it's likely that something got on the pads. it could be the rotor cleaner or just some oil or grease. if so, the pads are probably useless. if you can...

    choose a builder first. he or she and you can then decide on what parts you'll be using. the builder will then build appropriately.

    if i were going to buy any new tools (and i'm not planning on it), i'd most likely get a set of 3/8" Torx sockets. i've been inconvenienced a couple of times...

    i don't think it's fair to assume from the description given to think a bent frame is the cause of the rear wheel mis-alignment. of course it may be, but there are other, IME, more likely suspects.

    once made the embarrassing mistake of bringing BBQ sauce to one of those Grand Fondu's. never again... people looked at me like i was carrying a dead cat.

    recently, in order to make a valid comparison, i ran both a disc and a dual-caliper brake on the front wheel for a time.

    i think, if rowing machines had bearing mounted foot supports it could be a valid comparison. but pedals, due to their construction, offer little, if any, opportunity to exert fore/aft leverage.

    to my surprise, i received a couple of "free" CF cages with a frame i bought. i'll have to admit that they are worth the price, i guess.

    why are we assuming it's a bicycle tire, the OP gives us no clue as to proportion. maybe it's a 57x75. if so, it's probably a kid's wagon tire, and the OP is trolling. :lol:

    if you like to search the web and local LBSs and hardware store for parts, like my sisters do (they call it shopping), then maybe a look for some thinner locknuts. IME, they do vary somewhat.
