  • Posted in thread: is it normal to have to have one fewer chain link? on 05-06-2015 at 09:08 AM
    Now I have a new issue. The B screw doesn't seem to be doing a damn thing! Is it just that I am
    used to making very minor adjustments so I am being too timid in how much I adjust? I've given
    it at lea...

    Here is a video about adjusting your RD towards the end they go ovewr the B screw and this is
    where your problem is. https://youtu.be/4sm-tTbfamMThanks...I knew I had read about the B screw
    before, wh...

    Avoid cross chaining. You should be fine.It isn't cross chaining. It is just the opposite. It
    only happens with the small chainring front, big back like for hill climbing. so it is a
    straight shot. Th...

    I just replaced my drive train with some minor changes. The crank is 52/42/30 instead of
    50/39/30 and the cassette is 12-27 rather than 12-25. I have never done this before but my
    friend had done ever...

  • Posted in thread: dented rim a problem? on 05-04-2015 at 02:40 AM
    Here is an odd twist..The first day it happened, after trying some minor DIY fixes with a
    wrench and some metal flat edges, I took it out and it was bad. Not rubbing on the brakes when
    riding, but the...

    The rim won't fail but you'll feel it braking and it will drive you nuts.Yeah, I gave it a late
    night test ride and it was noticeable. It was not enough to make my brakes hit when not
    applied, and som...

  • Posted in thread: what could be causing slight fishtail sensation? on 05-01-2015 at 05:11 AM
    No cracks in the frame. Nothing else that I could find that could be causing it. But now with
    my dented rim, I can't really test things to see if I was just imagining it. In the 2 1/5 miles
    before I h...

    Upon further inspection, I see the razor blade DOESN'T quite lay flat. With one side pressed
    against the rim, there is enough space on the other side to fit the very edge of another razor
    blade (so li...

    I hit a pothole today and it caused the dent n the pictures, how concerned should I be? It is
    very small. I've seen some videos online about fixing much larger dens and the "after" footage
    of the rim ...

    I checked each spoke pretty thoroughly, an they all seem fine. I also keep my brakes pretty
    tight, so if there was any wobble at all, it would rub and it doesn't. The eyeball test
    suggests it is strai...
