I noticed this the other day, have no clue what it is. At first I thought it was the cable somehow catching somewhere, or the cable end somehow hitting the barrel adjuster in the lever hard, but it isn't either of those. Anyone have any idea what's making ... more »

iMovie on the iPhone is what I used before I got my Mac to make all my edits. I haven't used it in over a year but it was really good and has a lot of features. Well worth the $5. I took it off my phone though to save space, but I can still redownload ... more »
Added reply in a thread Cracking sound from stem 9/17/2014 9:48 PM
could be a loose headset, or that there's no grease where the headset bearings sit. always grease bearing seats. I would suggest it could be an ovalized headset, but you said it's a new bike so that's unlikely, but still possible.

this question makes no sense, the 1 & 1/8" refers to the steerer tube, the 3/8" refers to the dropout size.

Added reply in a thread brakes making noise when I pull the lever hard.. 9/16/2014 7:13 PM
So I fixed it, or at least for the moment anyway. Bikeshop owner advised putting a lick of grease around the cable end that goes in the brake lever. Did that and it stopped. Just commenting that for future reference if anyone ever searches for this same ... more »
Added reply in a thread What do you use to cut linear cable housings? 9/16/2014 7:09 PM
I use these at the shop, and they cut right through any type of housing. You just gotta be quick with the cut, if you slowly cut it or don't use enough force, you'll fuck the housing up or it won't cut right.

That shop is retarded, you can relace it all you want as long as it still has life left to it.

Thanks everyone, I'll reset the tension later & see if that works. Oil the cable too a bit. And it sounds like it's coming from the brake lever primarily

I thought the same thing about the dimpled chainstays. I don't think I've seen those things since older stock bikes and shitty low end completes nowadays. Regardless, I'd still like to know what this frame is geared towards; Street, flatland, or what ... more »

This is what happens when you use fucking aluminum for something that small that potentially takes a lot of pressure. My friend just bent his brand new ones in half last week when his wheel shifted on a flair, and the second one when his wheel shifted ... more »
Added reply in a thread cheapest bike&roof rack? 9/15/2014 8:28 PM
Roof racks are expensive because of the fitment pieces, there's so many different style cars out there, they can't make just one universal one, so they have to make several different ones to fit a wide variety, which isn't cheap. I know Wal-Mart carries ... more »

This. I had to stop riding to my fullest for almost 2 months due to fucking my back up, and lately I've been getting back into riding just about as hard as I usually do, and my body's been so sore. Stretching really helps though.
