    Remove, clean and apply grease or carbon paste to your seatpost. Had the same noise the other day and the seatpost was the culprit.

    Unless your current crankset is broken, there is no need to replace it. Any improvement in shifting with better chainrings will hardly be noticeable, providing your current setup is adjusted...

    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.

    Measure the outside diameter of the seat tube and buy a bolt on seat clamp. QR seat clamps suck.

    It sounds like you bled them without a spacer(bleed) block installed between the pads. You can do as FB suggests and open the bleed valve slightly and push the pads back, which will let a small...

    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...

    This is what I use in my frames. It is basically the same thing as Frame Saver at a lower price.

    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.

    Is there a reason why you can't just buy a 3/32 single speed cog and avoid buying a whole cassette to just to take it apart?

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

    If you just want a longer cage, a long cage from a Shimano mechanical derailleur should just bolt on to your Di2. There is no need to buy an expensive aftermarket one if you have an old long cage...
