I love working on any and every part of my bike, just me?

As for worst part to break, mine has to be cranks. You think you're about to ride away from something, might even be something you've done a million times before but all of a sudden, you end up headbutting your bars and twisting your ankle. And then, at least in my case, you have to walk home on a twisted ankle.

tightening rear hub/chain because my dropouts are chewed up

I keep contemplating smaller bars. And bigger sprocket. But I'm worried my bars will be too low, and I'll hit my sprocket. I don't hate anything about my bike, or bikes in general though.

I hate seeing a gyro on a bike though. Don't know why, I just hate them.

The only thing I really hate is when I have to take my rear wheel off. Everything else is somewhat enjoyable for me honestly. I just hate having to take my back wheel off cause I hate fucking with the chain tension cause I like it a very certain way to spin for crankflips. Plus my driver nut likes to tighten itself up sometimes

chains and brakes are fucking nightmares for me to work on, probably because I've never really spent any time working on either haha

Interesting. Chains and brakes are nightmares for me to work on, and I've spent plenty of time working on them! In my defense, I think a lot of it has to do with how particular I am. I want everything just so. Due to me breaking my brake (discussed in another thread), I'm now brakeless, though.

|

for me it is chains. Mostly cause the break at the worst time, and I am not super patient when dealing with getting them to be the right length etc...

but like many others, I love every aspect of my bike for the most part

I hate anything to do with rear wheels..
Truing, tensioning, and hubs (my hub needs constant repair) can be a wee bit of a hassle sometimes

Wheels are expensive because of the materials. That is wheels worth a shit! Problem I hate and get annoyed of is trueing my wheels. I have to do it all the time and because I'm 6'2" and 190lbs and I ride heavy! But it is what it is and gets easier and easier over time

I used to, but now I run a gyro lol.

Hate cranks, love the Profile race cranks but they were always a mother to fit.

brakes are a love/hate thing.....it seems like if I get my front brakes dialed, my back brakes feel like shit and vice versa. I swear it takes me at least a 3 or 4 tries to get everything dialed.

chains....fuck them. especially when they get twisted. and when you think you're good but you end up short. then you add a link and now its too long.

putting on tires can be a pain in the ass sometimes.


best solution: just pay a little extra and let the bike shop deal with that bullshit haha

I.Hate.Brakes
I still have them on the rear but they are such a pain in the ass and make so much noise everytime I land a trick. They also take an age to set up and I had to change my spring cos it died.

Bottom brackets. Installing them is fine but I cringe at the idea of bringing a hammer anywhere near my bike to get em out.

Any bearing puller for something of roughly the same size will work. Like for a pf or bb30.
Although, bb bearings are plenty strong enough to cope with a swift tap of a socket extension and hammer.
