Is it possible to remount a removed pressfit bb?

If you have the tools to press it out without damage then it is possible.
Whether if is actually worth it is another thing.

Why do you need to get it out?
Is there an issue?

I have Mucky Nutz seat flap, and the full length front (face) fender.
Could I use this shorter version face fender:
Would this fit in the seat stay for a REAR fender on my Carbon SJ FSR?

Of course I'm pretty sure it will, but thought I'd ask in case someone knows for certain before I buy one.

ScaryGuiTarS,

If it doesn't fit perfectly, you can trim it.

I bought a new pair of Specialized 2FO Roost Clip shoes around December. After about two months of tightening the laces, one of the eyelets of the shoe came out and the lace started cutting through the fabric. I have pushed it back in but it came out multiple times. I do not have a way to fix this and I cannot return the shoes to the dealer I bought them from. Does anyone have any solutions I could try. I really do not want to buy another pair of perfectly good shoes just because of a ripped out eyelet.

Is there a cobbler or shoe repair place close to you? Maybe they can refit a lace eyelet for you. Likely it won’t perfectly match, but that shouldn’t matter too much.

It is a 24mm bb and I have gxp cranks so I got an adapter and the bb has to be removed to install the adapter. + It will help me to route the brake hose

Glue it back in

İt is possible to run 12spd shifter on 11 der with 12 cassette but it will be a twitchy setup for 11 cassette

To make things easier, for shimano 10/11/12 spd only :

shifter and cassette must agree, any derrailleur can work as long as it can take the slack and tension of the chain. I use a slx 12 spd sgs derailleur on a 10spd 11-45 t cassette with a shimano saint 10spd shifter. I wrecked my saint derailleur and could not find a cheap alternative. Slx 12spd was 80euro and works perfect, lighter action than the saint, less chain slap and quieter overall

Has anyone had issues with loose caps on DT 350 hubs? I'm running a pair of 350s on E1700 rims - the rear is perfect, but the front fit is loose even when nipped as tight as it'll go. I'm using X-Fusion Sweep HLR forks (15x110), if that makes any difference. All of the forum threads I've found say that the hub caps do float a little, but will sit firm under axle tension. Mine don't. If I lift up the front I can move the wheel a good few mm side-to-side with the axle threaded and clamped.

it will only work perfectly on your bike if it's orange in color.

might need trimming though like RMR said Razz

Does anyone know the dimensions of the rockshox bearing eyelets? Ie what OD and width for the bearings, and what's the total width of the eyelet too. Trying to figure out if I can get a bearing eyelet shock to work on my bike. Thanks!

You can use oven cleaner to remove the anodising all together and bring the alloy back to raw, if you want a faster result use drain cleaner or caustic soda. Should be able to do just the heads if you dip them in. Otherwise I’d use a fine wet n dry sand paper like 1200 n then move on to polishing once the ano is off

if the eyelet located on top of the shock(reservoir side) it is 28mm, im not sure for the stroke side
