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'.

IMO this question is too broad. For example, here is a 71 page forum thread with the same idea and many links: click.

comment Problem during installation of Rockshox Reverb Stealth product
@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.

"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).

I have this mask and it is hard to breathe through. I use it during winter to keep my breath warm.

Trials "bike" is somewhat similar to the DJ one.

comment Can you take apart rear derailleurs, and how do you put them back together again?
Your derailleur has silver in it? What, is is some Super XXXXTR series? (this is meant as a joke)
