comment cable housing with braided metal hard to cut?
For those without the right tool, a Dremel with a cutting wheel works very well.

comment proper tube size for bicycle tire
If I couldn't find a wide 700c I would use the narrowest 29er tube available. Most likely a 29x1.75( approx. 44mm).

comment Fix a wobbly Shimano freehub?
With cassette removed can you tell if the freehub is loose on the wheel or is the axle loose where it goes through the freehub?

comment Hybrid bike stolen, trying to weigh factors for how to replace
I would add, if you have a LBS in your area that you are comfortable with ask what they might charge to give the bike a quick once over. I agree with all the comments used is by far the best value.

comment Can I replace the crank on a Raleigh m20 with one from a Schwinn Ranger?
After removing the cranks, measure the bottom bracket shaft lengths. If there is a difference of more than 4-5mm you may need to swap them also.

comment Using 9 speed Deore front shifter with 10 speed Ultegra front Deraileur
Bear in mind that the front derailleur does have a maximum tooth capacity. The mountain lines tend max at about 46 teeth per spec. I have had decent results exceeding the spec by a few teeth. As long as your crank doesn't exceed 50 teeth you should be alright.

comment Will these suspensions fit my bike
This fork is classified as a "city" fork by Suntour, my guess is it is not designed for off road use.The 700c fork will be longer and this may effect handling. You may also not have sufficient tire side clearance for mountain bike tires. The 255mm is an uncut steerer. Unless you currently have an XXL frame the steerer will have to be cut or additional headset spacers needed.
