    A lot of this stuff is pretty hard to screw up. It might be better to try it first and keep the LBS as a backup plan.

    s0ckeyeus is right, you have to screw things up really bad to break something. Just give it a try first.

    Great Food for thought Guys, Sadly I am really time poor so the bike shop may still get the work!! But I do enjoy being a grease monkey on the odd occassion.

    Thanks for the great article! I'm sure I'll get back to read it quite a few times before I'm totally familiar with the whole procedure

    From the guide:
    I would always refer beginners to the manufacturer’s instructions when installing components. If you’ve bought something new, the instructions should be included.
    Sound advice, as well That's what my father always says related to every technical device: "Read the instructions first!" Doesn't matter whether I'm putting together a new bookshelf or programming the VCR

    There should be a link to this in every bike manual!
    very nice!
    Never settle! There is always a BETTER somewhere. Go find it and shred it!

    Bike Protection

    Protect your Rig from Cable rub thru on frame & fork
    and put a crankskin on crank to protect it as well
    then GO RIDE!
