Just be aware that with red loctite you will need to use heat or a 'BFH' to get your crank arms off again.

I have always been told to grease spindle surfaces or as I've mentioned previously, any...

In my experience, this is a good first place to start. The 'I have a click' posts are rather common, and I post the same in each, but FBinNY has it. Remove the pedal, clean and regrease the thread...

Take apart the BB, clean it, regrease the bearings if possible and see what happens. If you do this, don't forget to add grease to every surface where two parts meet. Its important with any work...

So the simplest, most efficient method gets the most push back. Interesting. You are certainly more then able to sterilize your chains if you want, but I spend maybe 4 minutes a month cleaning chains...

Cant say if it will help with the thoughts but you definitely need to eat and drink more. No doubt about it unless you weight like 100 pounds or less.

Sorry if this sounds insentitive, but I have to be pretty precise where my 'baggage' is located in my shorts when I ride. Sometimes I have to pull it forward, sometimes backwards. I am not...

Looking at the pic I should have figured that out. Sorry.

QRs don't take much. If you feel the cam pressure at all when tightening, then its tight enough. When putting on a wheel I typically close...

The claw marks were a stupid case of 'hey watch this' in my younger days when I, admittedly, was not wearing the appropriate shoes. Lesson learned. The sad part is the 3 or 4 people that witnessed it...

I like them! Those are pretty versatile. Wish i had those on my MTB. I went with straight platform pedals which I struggle with on the muddy trails. I still have the claw marks on my calf to prove it!

I think you are covering it just fine. I'd say be gentler on the axle tightening and you'll be fine. If you think it isnt tight enough, put a dab on BLUE locktite on it but I don't think thats...

Good question. With a wrench I guess you just have to guesstimate. Don't be afraid to give it another 1/8 turn. Grease it and see what happens. I think going with the Shimano BB is going to be better...

Ah, pretty simple... remove the axle and stick you finger in the axle hole. Rotate the bearing all the way around. If they are smooth, put just a tad more pressure on it and turn it again. They...

Absolutely. Oddly the upper level Shimanos only need a correct sized cone wrench to remove the axle. Sounds like the no-names are similar. Once apart you should see a regular nut on the other end to...

For the future, they can be rebuilt fairly easily so don't be afraid to dig into it. For the lower line of pedals you will need the little plastic tool to remove the spindle. Its only about $5 on...

I have 5 sets of shimano 105 pedals. They all spew grease in the beginning, HOWEVER, the one pedal that spewed the most actually had the bearings mis-adjusted from the factory. I would check the...

Agreed. the procedure is the same for cone-type bearings. Youtube it once and its the same for all. If you don't have the right cone wrenches, I'd take it to the LBS. Its a quick 3 minute job.

Its not the price of the chain thats the point. Its that the difference between spotless and 'good enough' doesn't drastically extend the life of the chain enough to warrant the extra effort.

Geez, WAY too much over-thinking of a chain. Take a rag with some kerosene and give the chain a good wipe every couple weeks. If it takes you longer then 20-30 seconds, you are over thinking it.

I used to put it directly into my bottle and shake it. It was gritty when I did that. I started making a pitcher and stirring it with a large spoon and it was fine then.

Seems to be okay so far. I did throw the chain off the big chainring once, but I tired to duplicate it again by any means I knew of and couldn't. Hope it was just a fluke.
