    OP, a stripped thread can happen. Sometimes they're even due to poor quality parts. However, stripped threads to the extent that you're describing only come from heavy handedness. Either stop letting...

    Looks like you've put a lot of work into it, and done a good job. Can't say I like your colours though (too young and brash for this old phart), but that's okay. If that's fixed gear, or you have any...

    It all depends on the questions you ask. They can't lie and say it's the equivalent of Reynolds 725 when it was actually drawn out in a milking shed out the back end of China somewhere, and I'm sure...

    The bear logo is okay, a good artist can easily paint something in its mouth, a leg bone, car panel, Cossack sabre.

    This is the right starting point. You're not only looking for noise, you want it to feel smooth as it spins - don't worry, you'll notice if it's not. If there is any roughness, go straight to your...

    Basically, what Leuky said was 'don't be so bloody lazy and do your own research'. If that's too difficult a concept, just read a couple of pages.

    1/8 chains are designed for straight chain lines so aren't designed to flex sideways, unlike a 10sp chain which you can tie in knots. However, a chain is made up of lots of little bits so you'll get...
