comment Can I change my large chainring without changing the entire crank?
I am not able to locate any documentation on that FD, here the closest I came across. That's why in my first paragraph, I say probably.

comment 26 X 1.75 front and 26 X 2.0 rear tyre?
You can have a look here (at the green and red table) if your front rim is compatible with such a tire. It almost certainly is.

comment 26 X 1.75 front and 26 X 2.0 rear tyre?
This is not a complete question. Please provide a lot more detail: what bike? what rims? on what terrain do you ride? why do you want different tires?

comment Why does the glue in a puncture repair kit dry up so quickly?
+1 I have found pre-glued Zefal ones suitable for long-term repair of small punctures. It's the snakebite that mortal patches are powerless against and one needs a large patch and proper rubber cement.

@Angelo, just use pre-glued patches then.

comment What are my options for replacing a Shimano Hollowtech II BB?
I got it replaced under warranty. The bike had been handled as is normal for an MTB: some rain, lots of mud, some careful washing with hose under pressure, some salty air from around the sea. The BB was so badly rusted/worn, that the cranks wobbled, plus a handful of red powder poured to the ground.

comment Front disc brake noise only at high speed
I suspect it is touching somewhere very lightly, and going at high speed puts enough energy into the vibration to make it audible. If it is rubbing the pads, a few hard stops down hill should fix it.

Always easier with a video.

comment How to select gearing for descent?
@Blam, watching races in youtube, everyone does as you suggest - spin very fast on the flat sections. I need to rethink my question. It certainly feels more comfortable to give a short, firm push, instead of a whole spin, in some situations.

comment How to select gearing for descent?
The idea is not that you can go faster through an 1/4 turn in a difficult gear, but that you will be in a better position to recover is case of surprise.
