If not done up too tight, then yeah you can get them apart without a puller. But if they're cranked up tight (no pun intended). With no choice yeah..... There would be lots of ...

I love when there is an open ended thread when you go to bed. And in the morning there was a visit from Scrodzilla during the night. Leaving behind a post of wisdom. Heavily coa...

Even if your cranks aren't on your bike you may struggle pulling the arms off the spindle without a crank arm puller. A big yellow screwdriver, wedges, hammers and the like will...

The problem with bull horns is the lack of variation in hand positions. Hands are always at one level. Lower the stem. Good for going hard. But not so much for just cruising a...

One of the craziest things I had done (multiple times) would have been in my late teens, early 20s. I had a road bike and I would slip stream behind buses and trucks. A real buz...

Flip a coin. Roll a dice. Shipping shouldn't take weeks. What looks best for you. Both are race proven crank sets. Just check if they come with a bottom bracket. Generally...

You get it from the box that the headset comes in, (buy a new one). If you're lucky your lbs may have parts. Otherwise buy complete. And make sure not to lose any parts. The m...

Cartridge bearings are the type of bearing. Like skateboard bearings. They are a single unit. Then you can get different types. Open, dust cover, sealed. And then different qual...

It sounds insignificant compared to the previous posts. 104km. A group ride in a local cycling festival. I was the only single speed rider too.

Longest ride you ever done before?
