high five bmike

My name is Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. I can't answer every troubleshooting question here (my paying customers have priority). If you have an exceptionally tough problem to solve, I do love challenges. Help me help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

I've heard they work very well for compatible 8-, 9- and 10-gear chains.

This dollar bill trick is one of my all time favorites. A dollar in the repair kit can be most handy indeed.

@zenbike what environment are your miles? @iantius and @Neil - feel free to pit your comments as real answers - they stand alone and maybe we could get some consensus on specific models? Thanks for the great answers so far all! I'll hit up some local bike shops and answer myself later.

So basically, I will probably ride the rest of the bike well into the ground before a sealed hub. I could service the hubs when I swap out rims and spokes.

comment combining friction shifting with indexed components
Do elaborate on that in the original answer! The effective radius of the friction lever might be different than the indexed one. Well done!
