A 1980s Fuji should have an English bottom bracket with a left-hand threaded fixed cup. A few methods I have used to remove very stuck bottom brackets: Use the Stein Fixed Cup Wrench Clamp (FCC-2) to secure the wrench onto the fixed cup. This will allow you to apply more leverage without the tool slipping off. It also allows you to pound on the tool ...

You have a loose bottom bracket. It needs to be replaced. You need to buy a new bottom bracket, along with two special tools: A crank puller and a bottom-bracket tool. If your current bottom-bracket is cup-and-cone style (I'm betting it is), it can be removed with basic tools and elbow grease. If it's cartridge style, it can be removed with the BB tool. ...

I'm only going to answer your first question here: The rims on my wheels are pretty thin, and I very much like the look of deeper rim wheels You can't easily fake deeper rimes to get the carbon fibre aero look.

The problem is that you have the cable incorrectly routed under the pinch bolt / washer. You need to route the cable down the same "side" of the pinch bolt, but the washer needs to turn 90 degrees clockwise, so that one "claw" sits in the hole in the derailleur body, one "claw" sits outside the derailleur body next to the free end of the cable and the cable ...

The problem with a lot of mnemonics is that it depends on which side of the bike you are looking at. Since Shimano pedals are attached using a hex wrench from the side opposite the pedal, the "righty-tighty" rule does not really work effectively. What I remember is the way the bolt has to turn is "ride on, back off". In other words, if you want to put the ...

The shifter has a broken pawl mechanism inside that prevents it from shifting up (to smaller, harder cogs) reliably, when the rear derailleur cable is under tension. This is causing the rear derailleur to shift up 2-3 gears at a time for every use of the shifter. Given the difficulty in fixing shifters a replacement one is the course of action that has ...
