    I simply used a 5/8-11 threaded rod with large nuts and washers. I then did one side at a time using the frame as a reference for squaring and the rod had sufficient diameter to be centered on the...

    This thread should probably be in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. As for what fits, koolstop road pads shouldn't have any problem fitting as it's the standard thread on pad. As long as the pad you are...

    Yeah it sounds like a BB, but it could be a rear axle too as sounds transmit through the frame quite regularly. Were you spinning the crankset with the driveside pedal? If so, see if the noise is the...

    +1. Unless the chain had several thousand miles on it with minimal cleaning and maintenance before the skipping happened, I'd say they are probably fine. You'd have shark tooth syndrome at any rate!

    As long as it's cleaned regularly I can't see why you wouldn't get 3k out of it. I normally retire my Ultegra 6700 chains around 3k just to try and keep my components from wearing too much, but I've...

    If it is stretched that much I am amazed the chain isn't skipping or wrapping up. That kind of stretch has GOT to have some sort of wear on the rings and cogs.

    I've experienced this same thing with my Topeak Joe Blow Sport. I think it has to do with the valve sticking a little bit and that stickiness will make it quite difficult for the pump to overcome as...

    ^+1. I have noticed that FSA cranks tend to be quite tight in shimano bb's. Just go with the direct replacement FSA MegaExo and it'll be fine. Curious, how many miles did you get out of your current...

    I would personally just do them at the hoods, since it is already there and the cables aren't to be routed under the bar tape. Also allows some small tweaking when riding if necessary rather than...

    With the cable disconnected, can you manually shift the bike through all 11 gears? That'll tell you if your high or low limit screws are off. I'd highly recommend cables too since it has been a...

    Are you referring to 105 5800 or 5700? Both for example are Hollowtech II and they are significantly different in appearance. The 5800 looks more like a spaceship between the two IMO. As for what...

    Yeah this guy is a world class dick. I have had that happen to me before and I lived. I figured that was good enough for me and didn't care to pursue any legal action since it isn't exactly a regular...

    It sounds like there may be excessive friction somewhere in the mechanism that isn't allowing the shifter to work properly.

    Along with light oil in the freehub body, check your headset tightness. A pop could easily come from there if it is even SLIGHTLY loose. A very small shift up or down can cause quite a bit of noise...

    +1. Schwinn rarely used hard coatings on bikes of this vintage and your cups do not seem to be shot, although pictures may be deceiving! As long as the spindle looks good, and a light steel wool...

    Most cranks flex to a degree, but often the frame flexes more. When you say you got a new bike, which apparently had bent cranks, was it from a LBS new, or new to you? If LBS it certainly should be...

    If it is spinning freely and smoothly, then I say it is good to go. Going around 4-5 times is still pretty darn good. It's not, say, brand new, but I don't think you have anything to worry about....

    I say go ahead and do it. If it makes you feel faster or makes you enjoy riding the bike more, then there's no reason not to!

    Pardon my nitpicking of terminology, but be careful with this. The number of gears in the back still cannot determine if it is a freewheel or a cassette. A freewheel threads onto the wheel hub. A...

    Sounds like you've been busy! I rarely put that much effort into repairing tubes. I might patch one up during a ride if I feel like it, however I normally just throw in a new tube and scrap the other...

    I've also found that park tool cone wrenches seem surprisingly soft. I marred one up pretty bad when a cone was seized to the axle on a very poorly maintained bike.

    The only difference between 10 and 11 speed chains is the outer plating diameter. The inside dimensions are the same. The distance is so small that in many anecdotally evidenced situations, there's...

    First and foremost, it's helpful to know what bike you have and what standard of bottom bracket your bike uses to be able to determine how to fix it as not all are created equal. The noise could even...

    You would notice a massive difference for example of you ran a longer spindle i.e. BB30 vs. BB386EVO when trying to get the chain line correct. For reference, those bottom bracket standards, albeit...
