    This is great info. Hopefully it will save me some time and money from always having to take the bike to the LBS for even the smallest adjustments. I'm not really mechanically inclined, but from some helpful advice now I was able to adjust my front derailleur because the chain was not going into little ring. Normally, I would just think that only the LBS can fix something like this, but through some instruction on the website I learned that it was as simple as turning a tiny screw a half turn. Once I did it, the chain easily moved into the little ring. So, its great to have this info to help us. Thanks so much!

    i've busted my lower headset bearings after 3 months of not so abusive use, but from cleaning after every ride.

    what i think i've done wrong is using a garden hose to wash it (sprinkle). after i've replaced my busted lower bearing, i just use a damp sponge to wipe stuff off.

    according to cc aside from the lower bearing accepting most of the upward force from the fork, water tends to seep from the top and tend to pool on the lower part, hence busting it out easily.
