    Chains....

    I have been through 4 or 5 chains this summer on my mt. bike. :mad: I am an agressive rider and have snapped them too many times. The last one was an SRAM 970. This time I am upgrading to the hollow pin SRAM and am hoping this helps. Anyone else have issues with chains breaking all the time...

    Does anyone know anything about the Cannondale head shock forks? I was setting up for a ride today and noticed that there was no air what so ever in the shock from the last time I rode which I normally ride at about 190PSI.

    Chain Tool and Broken Chain

    I once again come to the cycling community for sound advice, direction, and a chance to be made fun of (which is just fine by me). Ok, I was riding today and for the very first time, I broke my chain. I thought "No problem, I have a chain tool, I'll be out of here in no time." So I thought...

    Stripped Cleat question/advice

    I need some input/advice/"make fun of" help here. I have a pair of SIDIs that I love and I use SPDs pedals and cleats. I went on a Mt. bike tour in Utah and rented a bike (Maybe that was the first mistake). The people tightened the pedals down so tight that the first time I went to clip out, the...
