comment Can I install a front derailleur for my bike?
I love it how trend-following mountain bikers pay $1000 for having a single chainring in the front (SRAM, I am looking at you), while sane users attempt to upgrade to more speeds.

comment Can I use a hardtail for MTB trail riding?
@AndyP, actually, exactly due to outdating of the 26", spare parts hit some insane price reductions. Browse around the German web shops. Chris - the best explanation on wheel sizes I have read so far. Ever!

comment Alternatives to buying a repair stand?
I just got a full-sized 4DOF repair stand from Lidl for exactly 30EUR. The same promotion was on 2 years ago and local cyclists, who purchased then, swear by the product. It even features magnetic small parts trey. Nq nq nq.

comment Minimalist setup for a “travelling bike mechanic”?
I have seen (online) similar cases, sold in department stores, for about 40EUR. Of course the quality would be bad, but how often do we remove the cogs or BB or replace the break cable housing?

@ElliottB, for example, on this 40 liter backpack, the piece of fabric, holding the designation and front zipper, is intended for a helmet.

comment From Trek to Surly - advice on frame size
@oldjimmy, keep in mind that a complete bike usually costs maybe* 30% less than purchasing the parts and assembling it yourself**. ///////////// * - a rough estimate off the top of my head, don't trust the number ** - id est without the cost for a bike shop to assemble the bike

comment Should I be continually weighting the handlebars?
Oh my, so there are 3 possibilities now: pull, nothing, push. Maybe pulling could be dangerous for the knees?
