comment Replacing a shifter
@DWGKNZ, I have heard that the pull ratio for FD for SRAM is 1.1mm/shift and for Shimano is 1.2mm/shift. That is, they are close enough to work, but not identical. Do you think this is true?

comment Bike type xc ht or cx?
It might be worth mentioning that a Shadow+ rear derailleur is a huge improvement over non shadow-plus variantm with a revaltively small increase in price.

"pgrades and tweaks" - e.g. helmet and knee pads.

comment Bicycle Components: What's The Real Difference?
@Blam, I have no idea, haven't ridden either. It's that some people on this site insist that above mid-level the grams-shaving could result in lower durability. And it makes some sense: a racer's top concern surely can't be "will I need to spend money on a new FD this season".

comment Why does my bike crank creak and come loose?
However, your cranks are with suqare taper interface. Maybe they need to be tightened more (with a dynamometric wrench).

comment Why does my bike crank creak and come loose?
Had the same problem with a Shimano Octalink left crankarm. The problem was that I had lost one washer during installation. On the third fall the crankarm got very damaged. I fixed the latter issue by purchasing new cranks (not very cheep task).

comment Are there any 'anti-fly' masks on the market?
I have this mask and it is hard to breathe through. I use it during winter to keep my breath warm.

comment Are Hollowtech II bottom bracket normal?
Did you use a dynamometric wrench (in case this is not a press-fit bb)?
