    It's pretty tough if you have a crappy chain tool. After messing with a link, it will be stiff and you'll need to use the "loosening shelf" on your chain tool to free it up. If your chain tool doesn't have one, hold the chain with both of your thumbs on the outer plates of the stiff link and give it a little push.

Honestly, people do ask stupid questions here and often we, instead of explaining why it happens to be stupid, we just troll them until they give up and go away. I am guilty of this as much as anyone, so no one reading this should think that I'm simply pointing fingers. I know that to a point it help to weed out complete morons, but at the same time, everyone has to learn somehow.

    I honestly don't think the dude who said this:

    will ever amount to a "valuable member of the forum" (but that's really not for me to decide). As a mod, I try to diffuse as much as I can - although it often backfires and I end up leading the hazing - and I almost always send the new user a PM explaining that he's not being picked on or ganged up on. So far, it's worked and the ones who want to stick around do.

    I know that using a shim on the steerer tube side of a stem is fine, what about for the bars themselves? Is this unsafe at all?

    been trying to wrap my head around affordable 700c wheelsets with the lightest possible weight. recommendations? dp18's arent that light from what i heard, and there are just too many versions of the same brand wheel out there to really decipher whats what. so for lets say under 175 what sets would be in my best interest?

    thanks

    DP18s aren't the heaviest rims out there but definitely aren't light.

    Under $175 may be tough because even if you find a wheelset with relatively light rims, they'll most likely be overbuilt using heavy straight-gauge spokes. If you want really light wheels, having a set of KinLins built using nice double-butted spokes is a great option.

    I didn't know you did that. Makes me feel better about the hazing.

    Call me corny, but there's nothing wrong with Cake's "The Distance" or Eminem's "Lose Yourself" to get pumped up. Oh and don't forget about "Fred Bear" by the Nuge.

    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Scrod,

    I'm tired of trying to find an avatar that I like. Will you please give me one for me to use for two weeks? Your choice on what it is, but keep it reasonable though.

    Dear Scrod,

    I want to get a carbon fork for my visp which comes with a steel/alum fork. stock rake is 43mm, how would putting the leader I05tr with a 30mm rake on my frame affect how the bike rides? the visp supposedly has track geometry.

    thanks!

    Just for the record here is a carbon fork with your proper rake on Nashbar:

    http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...0052_515806_-1

    It's about the same price as an I05tr too.
