It's funny how 15 years ago the Stiffee was a great bike, but now everything has to be compliant. Back then all the shore hardtails were built like that and then the pussies took over.

I still ride my 15-year-old Stiffee on the shore many times a week, it still seems to work great to me after all the whole point of riding is to smile more.

Changed some parts on my Shan. Not yet sure what to do with all those gears, but it certainly works pretty well.
Lost patience half way through throwing on the new drivetrain, so cable routing is a bit messy, unfortunately. Will have to fix that.

Can anybody confirm the Torx bit size for the clutch preload bolt on 11s Sram derailleurs? Is it a T50?




p.s. Any tips for removing rubber mastic tape?

The only gripe for me is the seat tube length. But there is a cure for that Wink

Pedals are excellent. Most grippy I ever tried. They wear out shoes pretty quickly, though.

3M adhesive remover is awesome for most adhesives.

Good luck with running a Rekon on the rear in autumn.

Using a seal pick, pull out the plastic plug in the middle of the clutch cap, there's a T55 Torx drive under there.

DO NOT TURN IT YET.

Locate the little metal pin on the left side of the clutch housing
Using a file or dremel, carefully shave away some plastic around the pin
Once you have a bit of the pin exposed, cut a notch in the pin so that you can grab it with pliers or drive it out with a small chisel. You may need to turn the T55 cap slightly, less than a millimeter, to loosen up the pin hole.

I've done this a number of times, but always been able to use an 8mm allen key instead of the big torx bit. This time it did not work...

Thanks!
