    Thanks. I have been checking the part numbers for replacement pads and it does appear that the brake pads kits, at least the ones sold on Amazon, do come with the pads, cotter pin and spring/spreader...

    Well I would prefer to get smarter about these self-maintenance things and be able to check my own brake wear, know when to get new pads, etc.

    Looking around on Amazon, one reviewer claims the...

    Thanks. Though this sounds like the pin will be worn out / ruined as a result of bending it to remove it and then re-bending once you put it back in. Is this an irrational fear? Or do new pads come...

    Hello everyone,

    I want to check the wear on my SRAM Avid Elixir 1 brake pads, but I can't figure out how to remove the retaining pin.

    Eh, flats happen.
    One time I was at a store, test-riding a bike that wasn't even purchased. Next thing you know, BANG! Good thing it blew just after I had gotten off rather than when I was riding.

    I've definitely used Goo Gone for removing the leftovers from stickers, though I would be careful on the bike frame itself. If any graphics/logos on the frame are stuck on with some kind of glue,...

    Another thought - do you have a valve stem with one of those little washers at the bottom that steadies it onto the rim? Maybe the washer is rattling.

    I had something like this and it turned out to be a strap on my helmet rattling against itself...
    Also had an adjustable water bottle cage rattling because its adjustment screw wasn't tight.

    Indeed, this is the direction I am going even though my bike is not carbon. Though I think some guess work will still be necessary for the seat clamp since there is no value given on the bike.

  14. Correct Torque - Manual Doesn't Agree with Bike

    Hello everyone.

    I ride a hybrid Giant Roam XR1.
    I have started to do my own saddle height / position adjustments in an effort to ward off some knee issues.

    The problem I am seeing is that I...

    Do your wheels have a quick release? If so, try releasing the wheel and then hold the brake lever tight before re-closing the quick release. This will probably eliminate this extremely minor...

    I suspect that for higher end competitive riders where weight and speed are a concern, rim breaks are superior in terms of being lighter and having extremely simple maintenance.

    I think part of it...

    If it is running the Giant S-X2 700C rims, these have an internal width of 19 mm.

    Therefore, it should be safe to use tires ranging from 28-44 mm in width. (source)

    Waahhh I'm so jealous of your Italian exploration!

    Seriously though I love that country and I think it's one of the places I would consider for retirement.

    I love both moderate trail-riding and also frequently go on-road.
    I'm not competitive.
    I have a small place with room for only 1 bike.

    The conclusion is obvious.

    @Jcomer...

    @Jcomer Once you actually try riding with proper bike shorts with the chamois, you'll know why it's better.
