Thanks, both! I had the feeling that the caps were unlikely to be pry-offs. An MKS dustcap wrench should be on the way to me by Monday, from Ben's Cycle in Milwaukee, $6.98 - not quite as good as...

Removing dust caps from MKS Sylvan Touring pedals?

Anyone know how to do it non-destructively? The wrench where I bought them (a storefront shop, but I bought them via the web) suggested that I brute-force them off with a screwdriver, but that...

I need to change my email address since the old one evaporated, but to change it requires that I remember my current pw, which I don't. But to get a new pw, the old address must still work, which it...

Replacing a 7-speed gear cluster - what is it?

I have a mid-range off-road bike with a 3x7 setup (1995 model, but I'd be surprized if any of the parts involved are original) The teeth on the smallest gears are quite worn, as I discovered after...

What's the best (cost x sturdiness x performance) repair stand?

In trying to do more of my own work, I'm hampered by not being able to get the bike off the floor. So I'm resigned to buying a stand, and probably a wheel-trueing jig as well. But I have very...
