    If it looks new, don't do much. Inspect the wheels visually. Check the trueness of the wheel. If you have a spoke tensiometer, use that to check tension. Otherwise do a casual check to make sure...

    Agree with a lot of the advice above: use the Stan's yellow tape or the Velocity equivalent, which are lower profile than Velox. Veloplugs are probably not the best idea for the new tubeless-ready...

    Sure but you would need a chain tensioner in this case. An old derailleur would do the job too.

    Since you will need new spokes, why not get a new rim and have an extra wheel? You will be happy to have it when you put your PowerTap in for service. If cost is the concern, you can get a 24h...

    A hair blow dryer works fine in lieu of a heat ***. Actually I probably prefer the dryer. If there is any adhesive residue it comes off easily with Goo Gone or similar (use a little heat in...

    If you look at Mavic's techdocs for this rim (www.tech-mavic.com), they say 70-90 for both sides of a front wheel or the drive side of a rear wheel. Pretty much everyone will tell you that you can...

    VAR, Felco, Cyclus, EVT, Shimano (if you swing that way). In general I go with Park with exceptions on a case-by-case basis such as Felco cutters. IMO Park provides industry leading customer service.
