    Hub spoke holes are finished as the manufacturer dictates, not as we wish them to. Some chamfer/countersink/deburr and others don't. But to expect the hub manufacturer anticipate how the builder will...

    Is that frame an Alu or a steel one? Alu post will dissolve with a strong base like Easy Off oven cleaner. Andy.

    Now that I've looked at the video I don't see any cage movement from the large ring trim function. As others have said this happens when the cable is too tight. If you loosen the cable's anchor bolt,...

    The road BB-7 should have the same caliper mounting relationships as the ATB version does. Only the pad actuating arm movement is different. I wouldn't claim the BB-7s need less frequent tweaking,...

    The LBS should be specific about the total cost up front. Shipping, actual part and any other cost other then tax. Any less then full disclosure is a bad sign. So the first thing I'd consider is...

    Not familiar with the stated grips and bars but- I first mount grips dry with only my breath as a lube. If I can't get them on, including using compressed air and a air nozzle, I'll try Finish Line...

    Be real conservative in your component choices. Pick stuff that has been around for many years. Lots of spokes, wider then fashionable tires....

    I'm not sure if you're experiencing what's commonly called "shimmy" (speed man's wobble). Some of your description does match up but some not. There is a lot of words written about shimmy. A few...

    So this last post has more detail. That the caliper can be adjusted/centered to allow for no rub. In the shop world I work in this is acceptable. We see all the time that rotors slightly shift to one...

    For a few years many of the Mavic rims' plug, which is used to align the two ends of the rim at the seam, would work loose over time. There was no issue with the rim's integrity as the spoke tension...

    I have run across a rotating grip shifter on big box bikes that has no access to the cable for replacement. I believe that the OP has the same. After I replaced the complete shifter with a SRAM MRX I...

    There are some of us who will run their pads flat to the rim to get max contact and deal with squeal differently then with toe in. Squeal is distracting, is annoying but is not wrong. Andy.
