comment Saracen Blown Up Diagrams
I'm closing this question because we don't do learning material recommendations. However, if you ask a new question stating what the part you're looking for is, we may be able to offer some guidance. As other users have mentioned, a picture in that new question would be immensely helpful.

comment Front derailleur is hard to shift into the big ring. Where to start?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail. Please consider expanding your answer to how the user might "tweak the front derailleur." A short, one-line answer like this is likely to get downvoted, flagged for moderator intervention, and possibly deleted.

comment difficulty in shifting to lower gear on shimano (6 speed rear gear)
Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail. An answer that says little more than "take it to a shop" should say why we can't give more specific advice and/or why this is the OP's best or only option. A short, one-line answer like this is likely to get downvoted, flagged for moderator intervention, and possibly deleted.

comment Why is a steady cadence so important? Or is it?
I'm not sure if this actually answers the question at hand. The first paragraph is relevant, but in order to answer the question, it would also be necessary to explain why stressing your muscles to a peak level and then resting is bad. This actually sounds a lot like intervals, which are widely accepted as a great training practice. The second paragraph basically boils down to "it looks silly," which is just an opinion (though not one I disagree with), not a reason that steady cadence is important.

This conversation is bordering on hostile. I would like to remind everyone to be nice on this site. If you do not believe someone's questions have value, simply vote to close and/or flag them. If someone antagonizes you, do not respond in kind. Flag the content and move on.

comment Identify: 26in dirt jumper/bmx bike “fetish” brand?
Serial numbers are not as helpful in bicycle identification as you might think. As @Mσᶎ mentions, a picture will help much more. A picture of the bike as a whole, and then close-ups of the head tube, rear drops, etc. would be best.
