    Today I learned that it is a bad idea to try to turn around in loose gravel in clipless shoes.

    Today I cut the steer tube and installed a star nut on the Mr P at the co op.

    Though I noobed it up and trimmed my FD cable and forgot I didn't have any more cable ends. So I left it over night and it frayed on me.

    Meh. My bikes never get cable ends unless the LBS is doing the job.

    Today I had to write the same article three times because I suck at not accidentally deleting everything.

    Do they end up fraying? There were a few times where I didn't put a cable tip (just too lazy) and they didn't fray. Seemed perfectly fine.

    The cable on the FD got frayed really badly, though. Probably due to the ****ty cut from the Pedros cutters.

    Yeah mine tend to stay intact unless I'm a total idiot about cutting them.

    oddly enough i find that if i cut them really fast they dont fray, but if i sit there dicking around not squeezing the cutters hard enough it gets all mangled

    You can melt some solder on the end if you have the materials... sorted. Course if you don't have ends, probably you don't have a soldering iron kickin around.

    Nice job. Glad to see the CL kustom fixay post wasn't just spam, and you got steered in the right direction. Now go ride the wheels off that thing!

    Never had any luck getting the solder to stick to stainless steel.

    Our design professors told us we couldnt solder copper wires to staples to hold a project down... Four kids came in to crits with exactly that done, it was somewhat amusing to see their bewildered faces

    Today I had a good 40 miles and the new fork arrived for the 930.

    Tomorrow I will install it.

    no idea what kind of staples they were, just werent supposed to be solder-able.

    But if you cant solder to stainless, just wrap a thin gauge copper wire around it and use a generous amount of solder

    For a stranded cable, just swipe some super glue along where you want to cut it. Wait a minute, then cut.
