    I'm doing the Bs this weekend. I usually finish in the 50s in the Cs, so this is going to be interesting. Weekend after, I'll be back in the Cs.

    Raced the Cs. I've got neither fitness nor bike handling. Finished 55th, then 54th on...

    CycleOps Trainers, Joule 3.0 Questions

    Does the Joule accommodate multiple users?

    There's no definitive info online. In the manual, CycleOps refers to a "multi user accessory kit" that takes USB dongles, but the kit itself is nowhere...

    For perspective: in cross they say if you're rim doesn't bottom out at least once, you're running too high a pressure.

    Of course, they're referring to tubulars; but I use that as a standard for...

    My wife landed on the rear lever today. It still works, you can stop the bike; but if you squeeze beyond the point of contact, the whole thing gives, the lever will end up against the grip, and the...

    Thanks. Load off my mind. That threshold adjustment sounds nice, makes lockout more useful than just for getting to the trail and back.

    Newb here,

    I tried riding with a hydration pack for the first time today, and I thought it was throwing me off my line and just making the big rocks hard to manage. Then halfway through the ride I...

    Believe me, I appreciate the front brake. I'm primarily a roadie and almost never used to touch the rear brake... that is until I started CX and then XC.

    So do you guys modulate your speed with...
  12. Switching brake pads front to rear? Non-OEM pads? Rotor life?

    Hey all,

    My rear XT pads are worn enough to expose the springs to the rotor. Since I use the rear 99% of the time—I'm new and still learning the ropes—I'm going to rotate the pads while I shop...

    Hey thanks for the advice all.

    FBinNY, thanks for the offer. I'll take you up on that.

    Help. Mystified by Rusty Chains.

    I've never had a rusty chain in my life. Not on any of the 6 bikes my wife and I ride regularly or on the 8 bikes that see only seasonal use. Not even on winter bikes that have seen quite a bit of...

    I figured it out thanks to the Park Tool site. Shoved the pistons in, engaged them against the fat end of the bleed shim thing, put everything together, squeezed the brakes a bunch of times. Much...

    Do hydraulic brakes swell in the heat?

    The reason I ask is between Saturday (when it was warm) and today (when it is HOT) my rear XT calipers got much, much tighter. It rubbed during the entire ride.

    I tried to center the caliper on...

    I'm afraid the freehub on my pre-built Shimano wheel (WH-MT75, UST) has started slipping. It's supposed to be XT level with XT internals.

    It's sad because it's less three weeks old and it rides...
