comment Chain Splitter vs. Chain Tool vs. Chain Breaker
Also the tools (pliers) to install/remove 10-speed quick links could be referred as chain tools, i guess. Btw, I have only ever seen the second tool referred as 'chain whip' or just 'whip'.

@alex, yes, from the manual: "Hold the hose barb by hand, then turn the remote assembly counter-clockwise to unthread the hose barb from the hose."

comment What are the most important accessories for a new biker to get?
In the city I don't carry a helmet. In the mountains I don't carry a lock. And I carry panniers only on road trips. So the only common accessory between all rides is ... a bike :D

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.
