I have always preferred zip ties over electrical tape for cable management. As It’s easier to replace a cable that way.

I didn’t wrap my whole cable just the rear brake and shifter together with one or two wraps in one spot so they don’t rattle

I am reusing a crankset on a DJ build and was just wanting to make sure there is no conflict to run a regular front chainring with a 3/32 inch single speed chain that will be paired with a single-speed sprocket in the rear.
Thanks as always

Hi I bought a used Bontrager 150mm dropper and it doesn't behave like my current 125mm Bontrager.

- the post grinds when it goes up more than it grinds when goes down
- the post when fully depressed leaves about 4mm sticking out
- the post doesn't fully extend, leaving 3mm

1. when i unscrew the sleeve screw the post does extend all the way out
- but i can't seem to make it go in that extra 4mm ....

2. i'm waiting for slickoleum to arrive so i can service the dropper - but are there any tips to get all my extension? i don't think i should open it up before i get the slick honey?

You can also contact the manufacturers. They should be able to suggest local shops or, if you have no dealers or service centres in your area, hook you up directly.

Depending on where you are trying to reach, needle nose pliers can substitute in a pinch.

I have an SPA-1 in my tool box..... if that would help, and you happen to be in Vernon.

..... or this. https://www.mec.ca/en/product/5048-464/SPA-2-Pin-Spanner
