It's a dork disk. It's called that because a lot of cyclists are dorks and therefore remove the disk. Eventually, due to rear derailleur damage, the rear derailleur gets out of adjustment and causes the chain to get between the spinning wheel spokes and the stationary cassette. You get spoke damage that way. In contrast, non-dork cyclists have a completely ...

Also, financially it may be cheaper to replace the rear wheel rather than rebuilding your existing (steel?) rim onto a suitable hub. Then realising that you got a 622 mm wheel when it might have been 630 mm, so you need new tyres. And it looks odd with a 630 front wheel+tyre so that needs replacing as well. Now the brake arms won't reach the rims, so you ...

A crank like that is easy to turn into a 1x because 110bcd 1x rings are readily available. You will need a new bottom bracket and the one you have is probably asymmetrical. The easy way of making a modern off the shelf BB work with an asymmetrical crank is use a 73mm one even though your shell will be 68mm, and use 4mm of spacer under the drive side cup (2.5 ...

It appears you have this hub or one much like it. The washers with your cone/cup piece ("Body Fixing Race") are what Shimano calls "adjustment washers." Removing one or more of those washers is how you adjust play out of most Shimano freehub bodies. Generally speaking, start out by taking one away and put the hub back together like that. ...

The worst is the sudden lost of traction when moving under acceleration. The chain suddenly skips multiple times, forcing you to roll slowly at best. Really not a fun in a roundabout in front of the car. This happens for fastest gears first. At later stages when you slow down too much at fast gear you cannot accelerate again, same as in the car (but, unlike ...
