It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Cable routing around bottom bracket
I've never seen anything like that so I don't have an answer for you, but I'm curious - what kind of bike is that?

@MadsSkjern Weeding is precisely the reason that contributing to an on hold question through edits is not a good practice. We don't weed heavily or often on this site, but there is no doubt that an on hold question will eventually be deleted. Then all of your work will be for naught. Another alternative that might be easier is to edit out the duplicate parts of your question. The edit will automatically cast a reopen vote. You can then use the edit history to past your "answer" into a genuine answer post.

Please do not edit answers into questions. If you feel that the question was closed inappropriately, please ask a new question, cast a reopen vote, or flag it and note the reason that you believe it was closed inappropriately. In this particular case, I would recommend asking a new question limiting, yourself to the specific parts of your question that you feel weren't addressed in the duplicate. Note that it is perfectly ok to ask a new question and immediately answer it.

comment Why do my tires keep losing air, even after having the tubes replaced?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. A tiny hole in the tire isn't likely cause this problem. As others have mentioned, it's more likely that there is a small object embedded in the tire. A piece of wire from an automobile tire is a frequent culprit.

comment Can I run rim brakes on a disc rim?
We really need more information for this to be a complete answer. As others have mentioned, it depends heavily on the type of rim. And as @Benzo points out, the rim of a properly dished wheel would still be centered within the forks.

comment Replacing bottom bracket on 98 trek 820
@DWGKNZ Fair enough. I did mention that I've never used one and said that "as far as I can tell" it didn't make a difference. Feel free to edit in correct information.

@Blam, I certainly will not delete your comment. It would be an abuse of my mod privileges. And more importantly, disagreement is important. None of us know everything and we all get stuff wrong once in a while. If no one disagreed, we'd never make any progress. I'd be interested in hearing why you disagree, i.e., what you think could could go wrong by using QR's and Tuggnuts, but we should probably move the discussion to chat before it gets too long.

@Blam The grip isn't so important as long as you have something to keep the wheel from moving. I've actually ridden my fixie with the bolts loose and not realized it because my chain tensioner was keeping the wheel firmly in place. The only thing that clued me in was that it finally unscrewed a millimeters or so and was rattling against the frame. I have no idea how long it was loose before it finally unscrewed enough for me to hear it.

@Blam the chain stops it from slipping the other direction when braking. If the chain is loose enough that the wheel can slip backward, it's too loose and needs to be tightened.
