comment Replace crankset or cassette for better road performance on an MTB?
Before making a crank change measure the clearance between your current ringgear and the chain stay. Some frames are wide enough that the bigger ring gear will contact the chainstay.

comment New headset cups loose against the frame
The advantage of using the correct product ("Loctite Bearing Lock" vs two part epoxy) is that it Loctite will retain the cup and be removable later if needed.

There could be a concern with galvanic corrosion with steel cups and an aluminum shim, especially if the frame is steel.

comment does anyone sell bicycle trailers with brakes?
What type of brakes are currently installed on the bike? My thought is this may be your best and simplest upgrade.

comment How to remove dried vulcaniser from cotton clothes?
Try freezing it and scrapping it with a sharp knife before using the solvent. Any bits that can be removed will be that much less for the solvent to remove.
