    Not sure what the question is. Are you unable to identify the parts you want to use a torque wrench on from that list? Or are you not sure what a torque setting is?

    IF your goal is to learn how things fit together, work and are adjusted you can learn all that without wasting money on new parts. Just get your tools out, and strip the parts. Then disassemble,...

    By drastically reducing the number of gear combinations you also risk reducing the bike's usefulness. Find a bike that fits, has the geometry you are looking and comes with plenty of gears. When...

    I don't see how a difference in weight of quick release skewers would have any measurable effect on your riding a hybrid bike. They need to be hefty enough to do the job on Clyde sized wheels. Tire...

    It's amazing what the right tires, pedals and gears can let one do with a bike. They make nice riding light to medium trail a joy and the Altus derailleurs do their job very well. No pictures of...

    Yes it is interesting how a bike with the same name can have different specs. In this case I think the 2008 FCR3 sold in the USA has specs that are different than yours and mine. It looks like the...

    I've got a Giant FCR3 that came with 11-28 8 speed rear and 52-42-30 front. I switched to 13-26 to tighten the spread a bit and get rid of the 11t & 12t that were never used. I'm considering...

    Your bike should be stored indoors, preferably someplace where air conditioning or heating can help to dry out your bike and minimize corrosion. If you do just that and keep your bike reasonably...

    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...

    Ride with her at a speed that allows you both to ride together. By yourself go off on a faster ride.
