You could sew your own patches on using canvas and high-strength thread. They even sell kevlar thread that's useful for this type of thing. If it were my panniers and I prefer strong-but-ugly, then I would cut up an old inner tube and use those as my patch materials. There's a very strong contact cement called Pliobond that you can use to glue pretty much ...

If you can't feel it with your hands, maybe you should look at the pedal. One of my pedals does similar thing. When a crank was getting loose on one of my bikes it was felt with hands too, and when coasting. Also, it may be bent chain ring or broken tooth on a chain ring.

New bikes at the very least require a full check and tune up out of the box. They also need to be "broken in" in many cases. New wheels can go out of true just from being ridden for the first time, one of my favourite things after building a new bike was to ride it around the shop and listen to all the spoke nipples make their "pinging" noises as they ...

It can be adjusted, but it's easy to go wrong here and make it worse if you don't know what you're doing. Most good bikes are bought from bike shops. This allows the shop to properly assemble and adjust the bike. If you know someone who can do it (and ...

Well it probably depends on how much you value your time and how fast you can do it. You can patch a tube but you can buy them new for like $3-4. It'll probably take me 10 minutes more extra to patch it then to just use a new tube. So you're effectively working at about $18 to $24 an hour... given I think most ppl will get paid more than that per hour and ...

I tend to run into the same scenario when I replace my own brake pads on my bike's TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes. TRP is Tektro's high-end division, and I use Shimano B01S resin pads or anything similarly shaped (TRP says pads for Shimano BR-M515/M575 calipers will fit). The cause of the squealing in my experience is the lack of proper bed-in. Disc ...
