    That looks like the stays got filled with water and froze, causing those splits. Repair is not practical, but for rail trail riding it might last a while. When it fails, it won't be catastrophic. ...

    A pair of appropriately sized sockets and a bench vise will work. You need one socket that will fit inside the shock eyelet and and catch enough of the edge of the bushing to push the bushing out...

    This is exactly what happens when the non drive spacer shown in the picture below is left out. The spacer with the spline pattern is critical. Without it, the fixing bolt will bottom out and there...

    +1 to zip ties. Those clips look nice, but they always pop off if there is any stress put on them from the cable.

    It sounds like he used the tube for a ghetto tubeless rim liner/valve setup by slitting the tube. As far as how long the sealant will last, it depends more on the porosity of the tire sidewalls and...

    In reference to the rattle, check your cassette. Mavic freehub bodies require a fairly large spacer (1.75mm) behind the cassette. If you use the shimano spacer, the cassette will be loose and...

    I think you are right. Maybe I should just restart from scratch. I just hate taking off my tubeless tire because it is such a pain![/QUOTE]

    If you think you want disc brakes, get cable guides instead of stops and run full length cable housing to your rear brake until you switch. As far as other braze ons, get everything you think you...

    It would appear that simply lifting upward on the handle would allow the lock to be removed. It looks like gravity is the only thing holding it on there.

    You're kidding right? The photo shows an arrow and the word "front" on the pad.
