    While this does suck, you lost me with the comment about 36 spoke wheels being "fat person"
    wheels, maybe you should be more concerned about the attitude than a wheelset no normal person
    will give 2 c...

    I guess unless you're doing a lot of climbing or racing, why worry about a few grams? :)Well..I
    DO do a lot of climbing. Nothing huge. The highest rated climb (according to both Strava and
    MapMyRide) ...

    A second related question...Is there anything I should be worried about regarding putting my
    old wheelset on my bike to use in the meantime? They have been sitting in a box for two years.
    Everything s...

    After two months of not trusting my read wheel after a terrible LBS experience, my decision was
    made for me when I broke yet ANOTHER spoke on smooth roads. So I am going to take advantage of
    Nashbar's...

  • Posted in thread: Could this bend/warp a cassette ring? on 07-01-2017 at 12:35 AM
    I took it apart and checked it out again...the smallest cog was no on right. Because it is so
    small and has its own "spacer" it seems to fit even when the notches aren't actually lined up
    properly.In ...

    A couple months ago, I took my bike to the WRONNNNNNNG bike shop after breaking a spoke. (see
    my post from May about the slight fishtail sensation I've had ever since.) I also noticed hat
    my gears wer...

    What I would do is go into a shop and ask them to check spoke tension and true the wheel. That
    IS pretty much what I did yesterday. I don't know why he seemed to think I just wanted advice,
    but I thin...

    New update...and not one that makes me a happy camper. I decided it simply wasn't worth the
    doubt in my mind so I took it to the LBS with the best reputation in my area. I wasn't happy
    that a simple s...

    New update..After taking the wheel off, and checking the tire and tube, as I was pumping it
    back up I heard some noises coming from the spokes (I think the spokes.) This happened
    twice...which I suspe...

    I think it may just be the spokes aren't quite right.Let me ask you all one more
    question...aside from the spokes...all the other issues with the wheel itself should be very
    noticeable right? I just t...
