    Whoops, I meant the 116mm one. That's what the "YL 116" means doesn't it?

    Both frames look exactly the same, the only difference is that one is 22.5 inch, while the other is 20 inches (distance...

    +1 to seeing a doctor.

    Have you been riding long? I'm 24 and, after not riding for 10 years, hopped on my Dad's bike and cycled about 6 miles on gravel (also on a hybrid bike). I'd never do that...

    The crank seemed solid. Since I thought I had done it incorrectly, it took a fair bit of force for me to remove.

    Cassette/freewheel and a new chain

    I'm once again buying bits for my bike and I need a new freewheel or cassette. I don't know which one I should go for, but the freewheel looks a lot like some of the 6 speed ones I have...

    When aluminium oxidises, it goes a dull silver colour. If you've ever bought an aluminium drain cover, they start off really shiny and, over time, become dull. This is because the aluminium exposed...

    Removing Lacquer

    I bought a rather scrappy bike frame with the idea of "doing it up". Unfortunately, I seem to be stuck quite early on.

    Rear Wheel

    How far back is the rear wheel meant to go in the frame?

    Currently, my rear wheel doesn't sit all the way back. It's about halfway in the slot-that-the-back-wheel-slides-into.

    I'm only asking...
