  1. What's the difference between XC and Trail mountain bike shoes?

    I was shopping for a new pair of bike shoes and Shimano has XC series cross country shoes and M series trail shoes. It is not obvious to me what the differences are. Both shoes indicate the same...

    I commute on 42mm and then went to 40mm for my new tires. There a tiny tiny difference in speed but because, but what I noticed the most was that because the new tires turned out to be more supple...

    No idea, that was just my guess. You'll have to wait for the other guy to explain.

    I ride Schwalbe Marathon Supremes on my city bike. It's 700x40 and weighs 500g which is super light. Nice tire but expensive and the smallest size is 28mm - these are touring tires after all.

    Based on nothing more than appearance, I would guess that the reason is these bikes put more weight on the back wheel compared to more aggressive hybrids like Marin Muirwoods 29er or Jamis Coda.

    I used a 8mm wrench to push the pistons back in, but I don't remember if that is with the pads removed or not. I remember sliding the wrench into the caliper and then pushing both ends of the wrench...

    There was STX-RC also. STX was 7 speed and STX-RC was 8 speed. Deore reemerged as a 9 speed group early 2000s or late 90s and took the place of STX/STX-RC.

    Maybe because it is your area? I had to go to several bike shops, but I was able to find cones for two Formula hubs. I got the impression it's pretty rare someone like me comes around looking for...

    The higher end cassettes have an aluminum spider and the three biggest gears are rings with teeth attched to the spider; although I swear I've seen one where the five or six largest gears were...

    Marathon Supremes. Good grip on the road and corners very well, more supple than the Town Ride tires that are OE on my bike. Supposed to be very flat resistance using Vectran fabric. And the...

    You cannot use a 8 speed shifter with 9 speed cassette. I mean you can, it just won't work well. The shifter is built to move the derailleur the defined amount of space between two cogs on the...

    If you mean $250 for an upgraded wheelset, I'd say keep your current wheels and save up some more because that's not much more than OE wheels. If you want some equivalent to your current wheelset,...

    I rock 40mm tires on my rigid MTB-style-hybrid commuter and it's like riding a cloud sometimes. I put 45 PSI front, the minimum recommended by Schwalbe, and 60PSI rear since I have pannier and often...

    Yes, shift cables are the same for both; only on brake cables do the heads differ.

    The cable head for road and mountain brake levers are different so you'd need three if you have a hybrid and road bike.

    $15 for cable install, maybe $3 for a cable, another $1/ft for cable housing that may be needed. The ship may charge a bit less if you get all four cables done; the prices I quoted are typical for...

    Brake cables are thicker than shifter cables, likely because they transmit more force. Shifter cables use the same head regardless if road or mountain. Brake cables have different heads for road...

    That chart is very conservative as stated on that page. Some Trek and Lemond bikes came stock with 700x28 on 13mm rims. Trek Portland and Lemond Buenos Aires to name a few.

    Yeah, no stunts while loaded maybe aside from trackstand.

    Traditional road rims are somewhere around 13mm to 15mm wide at the bead seat and both will take 23mm tires. Can you measure your rim width?

    130mm disc hub is uncommon and the rear wheel would double in cost to add 4 spokes.

    Yes, I've decided on 32 double-butted spokes 14/15 gauge. I want the wheel to be durable for my loaded riding and those occasional dirt roads and bunny hopping. Right now I run 28mm road tires...

    Going around a turn, the front wheel may cut a larger arc compared to the rear one. More noticeable in tight turns where the bars are turned fairly far.

    People probably worried about their bikes and its sportiness or sporty appearance. I put a cargo rack on my Lemond Poprad and many people think it is blasphemous.
