    Help with an old Kona Hahanna (1999 model)

    Hi, ive got a 1999 hahanna that i use as a rider, it has a 16" frame

    ive installed a set of manitou shocks, after a while of riding i can hold the front brake and feel that the stem is loose in the frame, although i dont know how to tightenit all the way.

    Also,my 2.5" Michelin hot S tire is too large for the fork and it rubs when the shocks compress.... is there anything i can do for more clearance?

    also when i shift into my high gears i get the oldclickety clackclickety clack. is that my rear derailer that needs adjusting?

    Thats all the questions i have for now

    thanks
    -aaron

    What fork is it? Threadless headset I assume?

    Does the fork have rubber boots? Is that what is rubbing when the fork compresses? If not, what is it rubbing on...the arch?

    And yes, it sounds like your rear derailleur needs a quick adjustment.

    The Park Tool website is a good resource for repairs.

    Adjusting your rear derailleur:

    Adjusting your headset (make sure your steer tube is lower than the top of your stem):

    Use a smaller tire.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
