    What's that video that included the guy riding over a suspended chain?

    I remember seeing this video a few months back that included mountain bikers doing all these crazy tricks, with one of them riding over a thin chain suspended between two upright poles (chain fence), a feat (in my mind) of incredible balance. Argg... what was that video again?

    Can someone help identify this part on my bike? With pics!

    Thanks for the reply. The bike came with linear pull (v-brake) Tektro brakes, and the ones that you see now are replacements. The cable stop on the left seat stay WAS used for the Tektros, but they no longer fit the new brakes. Here is another picture of the thing, this time from the top...

    Can someone help identify this part on my bike? With pics!

    I've got a 6 year old Diamondback Ascent 3.0 dualie, and I can't for the life of me figure out what this part is. It's located right under the rear brake cable, and pivots up and down only a little ways because the brake blocks much of its movement...

    Are front derailler cables for road bikes the same as ones for mountain bikes?

    Oh yeah, are there any cable recommendations out there? Is there any difference between the generic stainless steel and the teflon coated types?

    Are front derailler cables for road bikes the same as ones for mountain bikes?

    Are front derailler cables for road bikes the same as ones for mountain bikes? I'm wondering this because all the roadie cables that Performance sells are above $50, while the ones for mountain bikes can be $5.

    How do you bunny hop without pedal straps/clipless pedals?

    I've tried and have always failed. I know it can be done because my friend has done it on my bike right in front of me before, wearing tennis shoes and using my strapless, non-clipless pedals. He got about 5 inches of air on both wheels. I just don't understand. Whenever I attempt to do it my...

    Any teachers here that commute on their bikes?

    Aye, I totally agree. But obviously as a teacher you should also teach the kiddies about safety like wearing a helmet, looking for traffic, etc. All I know is that I first started biking at the age of five and instantly fell in love because of the speed, but... I didn't use a helmet because...

    Know where to get those plastic pantleg protector thingies that go over chainring?

    I commute on my bike and whenever I wear long pants the pantlegs always get caught up in the big chainring. Does anyone know where I can get that plastic thing that goes over the top of the main chainring to prevent the teeth from shredding pantlegs? They're a common thing on k-mart/wal-mart...

    How much will LBS charge for truing a wheel?

    I guess my back MTB wheel needs some lateral truing because the brake pads hit the rims in one spot when rotating. Would it be cheaper and more educational to get a spoke tool and attempt to true the wheel myself without a truing stand? I don't know anything about wheel truing other than what...
