comment Is there a difference between mountain and road stems?
Most steer sizes are 1 1/8" in MTB world, while most popular handlebar clamp size is 25.4, with 31.8mm on a rise of popularity with dh/freeride crowd. Also I've never seen a MTB stem with rise more than 15 degrees.

These are not "hybrid", just cable pulled. Also known as "mechanical".

comment Why such a tiny difference in crankarm length?
I can't imagine pedaling 220mm cranks. I don't think my knees will take it!

comment do I need to change my disc if the brake pads got oil on them
I've tried to fix too many contaminated pads to learn it is not worth the effort. They will not be as good as before contamination. @Poorav, you can give it a go, but don't expect magic. As for bleeding breaks - it is quite tricky, and requires special tools.

comment What are the most common causes for hysteresis in the rear derailler?
What do you refer to as "bearings"? In my cycling career I've seen only experimental rear mechs with bearings. The rest of them were just connected together, so they can move. But, of course, there are bearings in cog wheels.

comment How to shoulder a bike?
bottom pedal does not really on a way, so place top pedal wherever comfortable. One hand on the fork, another on bottom crank/pedal. See the guy in red on right/bottom on the photo.

comment Converting my bike to use quick release wheels
On some front hubs, you get 9mm axle. Don't forget that!

@WTHarper there are trails where you can go with no rear suspension, but you'll be missing out on fun.

comment Unknown freehub, trying to source
you might be out of luck with these ones. Probably would be easier to replace the whole rear hub and re-lace the wheel.
