    Ah, so your serial number begins with R80108. Just wondering; did your serial number have an A or B suffix? My friend’s didn’t have any suffix.

    Be advised that you can place a magnet directly on an actual aluminum rim only to potentially discover that the rim appears to be attracted by the magnet! Thus, this would seem to suggest that the...

    The OEM crankset on my lightweight 2011 Trek 2.1 road bike was a 50/39/30 with an 11-28 cassette (cogs: 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 24, 28).

    While I’d love to have a SRAM PG-1050 11-32...

    My friend’s Tri Lite Technium required a Park Tools FR-2 freewheel remover which is a 2 pronged tool (it was a suntour 6-speed freewheel). It’s the only one I’ve ever encountered that...

    Turtletop, pay particular attention to the way the tire is mounted near the valve stem. Sometimes the valve stem isn’t situated properly, which in turn causes the tire to bulge at that point.

    Greetings reltor,

    The strategy you propose will be rather costly, as you’ll incur the expense of a new rear derailleur, new 11-36 cassette, and new longer 10-speed chain.
