    I bought the 16mm velox strip last night and installed it. I cleaned the rim REALLY well with a rough sponge and soapy water. I pressed the strip on centered and then pushed on it with a box end...

    I do use baby powder in my tires. I'm going to buy a new size of rim tape. I think there's no sense on purchasing the same size and expecting a different outcome.

    Thanks for the replies. I cleaned the rim with simple green first and then acetone. It was definitely squeaky clean. You can see the pictures of what the rim cross section and measurements look like...

    Velox rim strip slipped

    If you remember, a few weeks ago, I asked what width of Velox rim tape I should get for my rim. It was decided that I use the 16mm wide tape, so I purchased it. I cleaned the rim bed to get rid of...

    I am 16, and like you, I'm looking for a job at a bike shop as well. I tried ~4 times at various bike shops near my house, but none hired me. I was able to find out about a local co-op, and started...

    Maybe the headtube isn't round, and thus has a minuscule egg-shape to it. You may be able to bore out the headtube with a brake cylinder bore, but I suggest not to.

    IMO, waterproof grease is kind of redundant. Most greases have natural water-repellant properties.

    Lubricants I use:

    Greases: Coastal All-Purpose EP Grease. It's gray, so it's hard to tell...

    So my dropouts were bent but not misaligned, if that makes any sense. I built up the rear wheel yesterday (did I tell you I destroyed the rear hub?) and installed it without a problem. One minor...

    I'll try that later today. Thanks. So if the dropouts turn out not to be aligned properly, do I just bend them into alignment with anything? Or does it require special tools?

    Your chain looks a link or two too long.

    I agree with picture #1 . #2 is definitely too long.

    I have SKS plastic fenders and they don't rattle or dent and do the job. I took them off recently, considering how often it rains here in Arizona.

    My 2 cents:


    Since you replaced cones once because of pitting, it may be possible that the cups inside the hub were pitted slightly as well. The bearings binded and metal scraped off, caused...

    Chain is not too narrow. It's a single speed, 1/8", 4/32" chain. I switched the cog for a different one and it fits perfectly. Now I'm curious why the cog is a shorter pitch. Could it be that it's a...

    Chain has VERY little to no wear according to the 12"
    ruler method. Probably the cog then, yes?

    I did leave the proper slack in the chain. I built this up with help from a friend and he suggested I leave at least 10mm of slack in the chain and I've always made sure to leave that much slack in...

    Yeah the low temp may not seem like much but we're used to 100+ degree weather so that's pretty cold to me. I'm not bald, and I've been wearing a thin, wicking beanie from Nike. It helps a lot but I...
