    My first mountain bike was a Trek 7000, and the components (especially the fork) were garbage. I do still own my 2nd mountain bike (a 1992 Alpinestars Al-Mega XT) but the head tube has a crack, so...

    Plus they have a great warranty. If they break and it's not your fault, they give you a new pair (forever). If you break them and it's your fault, they give you 50% credit.

    Thanks. I knew about bedding them in, but now about the 40 stops deal. I think I've probably done no more than half that in the past. I have a long grade that's around -5 percent. Should do the...

    Any brake pad recommendations?

    My bike has a set of Hayes Nine hydraulic discs, and my last set of pads went away quickly after an epic I rode in October. By the end of the ride they were howling like the horn on a locomotive,...

    Our office used to have an 8-character minimum password length that required an upper case, lower case, special character, and number. Everyone made a fair attempt at making a secure password.

    Try ScratchX from Meguiars. ALWAYS start with the least abrasive solution first, and only go harsher if that doesn't work. ScratchX is designed to clean up minor scuffs and scratches in automotive...

    I swung by Performance tonight and shifted some of their 8-sp bikes with the Shimano A* groups. The shifter action was pretty sloppy. But I noticed that they had 10-sp XT stuff on sale for pretty...

    Weight's not an issue since I don't race (hence my 27 lb bike), but I do like a good feel to the shifter. I like it to be crisp and have a short "throw". My old 9700 shifters made you shove the...

    Well because I wasn't really sure if they still made 8-speed anything anymore, and if they did whether the new stuff will be compatible with my old stuff. Also, after doing a Google search just now,...

    Ok, I got the shifter halfway apart (and stripped the little nut in the process) and it looks like there's a spring on that little pawl that moves the teeth around that's broken. If I press the pawl...

    I flushed it with liquid wrench teflon spray lube (basically triflow) to no avail. I'll check the cable next. I need to find a 3.5mm allen to disassemble the shifter though.



    Thank you very...

    XT shifter won't shift to larger cogs

    I was out riding today when I went to grab a gear on my 8-speed XT thumb shifter, when I got a "pop" and the thumb lever just went all the way forward with no resistance, other than the feeling of...

    I've been a Speedplay road user since 94-ish, but I use SPDs for my mountain bike, so I'm not much help, sorry.

    But I chose Speedplays more for stack height and ease of entry rather than float.

    I'd want a shop with a sliding glass door in the back that opened right up to a nice single track trail or three. Maybe three different trails marked like ski runs (easy, inter, and difficult),...

    Decided to make a few more changes to the rig.

    Back in the early 90's when I started riding, I used a handlebar called a Scott AT3-LF. At 210 grams, you couldn't beat it for weight, as it had the...
