    Pretty much all new Shimano cranksets will have ramps and pins. 'Q factor' refers to the distant between cranks if they were clocked in the same direction. Think of it as how far your feet are spread...

    It is worth mentioning that cup and cone suffer mainly in regards as to the contact points that 'cup' and 'cone' press the bearing. Since bearings are spherical, as the cone moves inward during...

    It isn't just the chainrings you have to consider, but the spider of the crank. Often times one of the arms can get bent, causing any chainring that is installed to get bent too. I don't think its...
