 If you didn't know how to change a cassette, this skipped a ton of details -- so pointless. And if you did know how to change a cassette, this skipped Rachel -- so pointless. Wink

 Step one -> tell the team mechanic to replace the entire drivetrain.

Step two -> throw old drivetrain components with 10km on them in the trash.

Step three -> profit.

No i didnt watch the video.

 We have this CEO cashed up bloke come in to the LBS i work at. He lets his Shimano Ultegra 11spd drive change have max 200km. With out fail he asks to replace the entire drive chain (cassette, chain, chainrings and sometimes even jockey wheels) despite how much we tell him he doesn't need the new gear! Needless to say I have Shimano Ultegra 11spd on my road bike and about 4 other sets lying in my shed......

 As a father who specifically seeks out pinkbike videos of girls to help encourage his daughter, it was pretty disappointing to have Rachel turn into a guy in order to work on a bike. Not a great message for little girls and a lame video all around.

 I don't normally slag things like this off but I wouldn't use any of those cheap looking tools near any of my bikes. An adjustable wrench FFS, how about a proper one that fits a socket so it doesn't slip & that chain splitter WTF. If Team Atherton use these tools then they should be ashamed. And where is the powerlink?, such plug for Shimano without saying it!! Sorry rant over.

 That adjustable spanner looks of terrible quality! Silverline tools are rubbish.
