comment Use a lock nut on a presta valve?
Lining the logos up is useful for finding what ever it was that put the hole in your tyre in the first place.

comment how many bike I can carry in my sedan?
I'm sure the racks will say on them. Have you looked or read the descriptions? Also, too broad?

comment Shimano cleats, Exustar shoes: Which bolts to use?
They're standard M5 bolts, I believe, you should be able to find them almost anywhere.

comment Valve Extender for Kids Bike
Yeah, an adapter is the best idea, that's why I didn't add it as an answer. But, wheels that are too small to fit the pump head inside of are not usually under that much stress. I tried this because specialist bits and pieces are hard to get hold of here.

You'll need to fill the old hole with something too, or it'll pop the tires when you try and pump them up.

I don't think these'll work, they're usually not bendy.

Might not be practical, but I had a similar problem on a pram with plastic wheels and drilled new valve holes at an angle.

comment Do more expensive bib shorts make a difference when sat on a turbo trainer for hours on end?
I've found quality shorts make a bigger difference on outdoor rides. At home I use which ever shorts are clean at the time and whilst the fancy ones are more comfortable to wear, fit better etc., there's not a lot they can do to stop my bum going numb. This is most likely a personal thing though, not everyone's riding or nether regions are the same.

comment Felt carbon steerer compression plug removal
Looks to me like you just twist the top plate clockwise. Have you tried that? A strap wrench or jar opener might help if it's really stuck.

comment Tools needed to perform groupset overhaul
A cheap stand and an expensive pair of cutters are the best tools I ever bought. Those two things alone make life so much more bearable in the workshop.

comment Replacing a groupset in step purchases
This is a very expensive way to do this. A much better way to do this is to save up and buy a whole new bike.

comment Problem during installation of Rockshox Reverb Stealth product
I wouldn't clamp the hose at all, they're not keen on that. If it's going to unscrew, it should do so by hand. Don't force anything or you'll regret it. Are you sure you have a threaded hose barb?

But you don't have to buy a brand new one.
