  1. Tighten cartridge lock ring with pedals?

    I bought a new wheel and cartridge. I knew I didn't need the chain whip because the old wheel and cartridge are trash. But I didn't realize I still need the cartridge tool.

    It seems to me that...

    Thanks, Bob.

    So if I understand correctly, I can use any crank that uses the same length spindle as the M151 uses. Right?

    Looking at the specs I attached to the OP, the spindle length is "D-NL...
  3. crank / bottom bracket compatibility questions

    I am looking to replace a Shimano M151 crank. I want to get something that is compatible with the current bottom bracket, which seems to be fine (no noise, no wobble, little resistance).

    How can...

    tire / rim problem

    I took my tire off of the rim to change the tube last night. I put the tire back on, but a small section popped off of the rim while I was inflating (around 60 psi, on the way up to my usual 105). ...

    chain / cassette replacement questions

    I have about 5k miles on my Cannondale Quick 5 hybrid. (About 99% of the mileage is on paved roads, but I'm not sure that matters.) The bike still has the original chain, which I'm guessing is...

    Agreed. I was just looking to make Hill #2 take 30 minutes instead of 23.

    Many of the posts here seem to be addressing whether a weighted vest would help with climbing speed. That isn't my issue.

    The biggest hill near my home is Hill #1 , which is a little less than a...

    Without rocks, climb at 6 mph for 1 mile = 10 minutes of intensity.

    With rocks, climb at 5 mph for 1 mile = 12 minutes of intensity.

    Very nice work, and congrats!

    I started riding in April about 5 years ago, and set a goal of doing a century by the end of the year. I set intermediate goals throughout, including mileage,...

    If you can already ride 90 miles in a day, you have enough stamina to handle the mileage. I would work on two things:

    (1) Hill training. As I'm sure you know, the Bay Area is a bit bumpier than...

    Where I live, there are lots of hills, and even some steep ones, but none of them last very long. If I turn a bigger gear to increase power output, the hill ends sooner. If I want to make a hill...

    Quintano's jersey for stage 21

    Will he wear white or polka dots? And who will wear the one he doesn't? I'm curious how that works.

    If the women started 30 minutes later, they would finish an hour later, or more. TV networks would have little if any incentive to cover the end of the women's race.

    Copious water consumption

    I drink more during bike rides than anyone else I know. For example, during a recent group ride, most riders had two bottles and didn't finish them before the rest stop. I had five bottles, and...

    It is a metal spoke on a stock wheel for a cheapish bike, so I can't imagine that the spoke cost much at all. It was on the rear wheel, but not on the cassette side so I didn't think it would entail...
