    are most of these bearing repack-able or sealed designs?

    So here's the skinny ...

    I got home from work early yesterday, skies were clear, mid-60s, figured I'd go out and grab 10-12 miles on my 1+ month old Trek 820 before the wife and kids got home.

    About 5 1/2 miles in, my <expletive> chainring cover (I think that's what it's called) popped off. It's hard plastic, and there seems to be 3 tabs that should hold it onto the crankset (again, might not be the right term), but 2 of them had snapped off somehow. Coincidentally, I took it to my local bike shop the day before to take advantage of the (belated) free 30-day tune up ... maybe the guy inadvertently mucked it up somehow. So here I am with this round plastic perforated disc thing-a-ma-bob dangling next to the pedal as I'm riding. A-nnoy-ing. The largest "hole" - part of the molded design - was too small to just slide off and over the pedal, and I couldn't (didn't want to) break it off.

    Think it's an important piece, or is it just cosmetic and can I do without it?

    Hey,

    Chainring cover is not really an important part of the bike. It basically keeps your trousers away from the dirty chain and outer part of the chainring which is also usually dirty. If you have shorts on, than it doesn`t effect you. You easily remove it. A picture would be great how it looks now.

    Get that gay chain ring cover off there and get yourself a cool and hip pant leg strap for riding with pants. Lots of the cool companies make them, sometimes give them away, and the have reflective material and even utilize recycled bike tires etc!

    Lots of kids tell me they want to be firefighters when they grow up, I tell them they can't do both!

    It means one or both of the pads are dragging on the disk.
    get it where you can look thru the disc brake
    make sure the moveable pad has clearance when relaxed
    make sure the adjustable pad has clearance
    about the thickness of a credit card should do it
    Gravity ... is a harsh mistress

    Quickie, I know this is an old thread.
    I sprayed my bike with Inox (CRC type thing) BEFORE reading this excellent guide.
    Back disc rotor cleaned up great with isopropyl, front still either makes noise or slides with an obvious "ticking".
    Is there something I can do to clean the pads or should I chuck em and get some new ones?
