    Chances are it's the shield or cassette mechanism, but I would check if the bearings are properly adjusted. Since removing the inner assembly is only two steps more than adjusting the bearing cone on...

    Sometimes the steel shield or cover behind the sprocket is dented or slightly buckled and engages with the rubber seal behind it, causing the hub to put power back into the sprocket and chain when in...

    When I started looking for an apprenticeship as a mechanic, being an enthusiast was actually what held several shops from hiring me.

    One shop told me they didn't want to hire me because I'd have...

    FSA are supposed to be compatible with Hollow Tech 2 BB's, but I've had some funky business go on with fitting FSA cranks to Shimano BB's. GXP is definitely not compatible with Shimano even if GXP...

    Well put. There is just no way to make a roadie mamil understand this theory. They are utterly brainwashed by the industry and its buzzwords. My time in a roadie shop made me hate roadies. If I may...

    +1 on it being a cable issue. Do you run full length housing? The cable run has to be as smooth as possible with no sharp bends or kinks.

    How is the angle of the cassette joint? I've seen...

    Guys, the problem is not press fit BB's (eventhough I hate them with a vengeance, having worked on various press fit standards in a roadie shop).

    Having worked a lot with BB30 cranks, I say check the bearings for play as well. They wear out fast, because basically BB30 is a crap design, introduced to sell more bearings and have shops earn more...
