Thanks guys,

This thread was extremely helpful, one of my goals for this year is to learn more about bike maintenance. I still hold my breath and say a a prayer when I ride in hopes on not getting a flat. I am learning little by little.

My bike has a Quick Release for the seats and wheels, so this information was helpful. This season I added spacers to my pedals. Minuscule I know, but I would have brought the bike to the shop to have this done. I have new grips I am putting on tonight before tomorrows ride on the Heritage trail.

I have stripped (striped?) my quick release on my Jamis because the post would drop 1/2 inch or more on rides. I had just over tightened too many times is my thought. swapped out the post clamp for a good bolt on and no further issues.
