comment Does Shimano XTR RD-M9000 SGS 11-Speed Shadow+ MTB Rear Derailleur Long Cage work with 10speed XT shifter?
What ever your decision verify if the replacement will fit your hanger there are direct mount and conventional mount types.

comment Shimano Deore shifters not returning to neutral position
Check the screw for the brake lever clamp. If mispositioned the shift levers will move forward but don't return. I have done this several times after a spill in the woods. The first time I thought I had broken the shifter.

comment How to clean a grimy old bike frame?
I have had good luck with a "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser". I spray the frame with the foaming bathroom cleaner, then scrub it the Eraser Pad. So far I haven't damaged any paint or aluminum.

comment one side of cantilever brake pads does not spring back
Can you check the plastic collar between the brake arm and the frame to see if it has cracked?

comment What's this cotter pin on the barrel adjuster for?
If the detents are big enough to hold, I would remove the adjuster, slide the plastic knob off the screw. Install the small spring the adjusters typically use, onto the screw prior to reinstalling the screw in the knob. This will push the plastic onto the detents to hold it in position.

comment Upgrading to new hydraulic brakes - should I put same sized rotors on front and rear wheel?
Check with the fork manufacturer, some limit rotor size as a liability issue. If you exceed their maximum they will likely void any warranty.

comment Bottom bracket feels rough, should I replace it
Even the best stuff wears out eventually. I would just buy a quality name brand replacement and follow the manufacturers instructions.

comment Increasing the size of tyres on a hybrid
As an added issue of concern, I have had tires that clear the frame fine but the front derailleur would hit the tire while on the smallest chainring
