@leelau: I've rode a few saddles that were definitely making an effort to reduce the amount of kids people have.

10 Pro Mechanics' Favorite Tools at the Albstadt XC World Cup Season Opener
The classic Park Y is what I used for my first 10 odd years of wrenching on bikes. Late 90's-early 2000's it seemed like every bolt on a bike was a 5mm SHCS. Those were great times for working on bikes.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Width, Cleaning Tips, Shock Setup, & Buying a Bike Without Trying It First
@SATN-XC: drying it with a rag is a great time to inspect your bikes for cracks, worn brake pads, etc. Plus, at least for me, it leaves water spots if I don't.

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@fssphotography: it's truly amazing that someone can be so utterly clueless of the fact that they are a complete mysoginist and speak as if they have something insightful to say. Sorry to break this to you, but many women accept "free" drinks and dinners in order to avoid getting raped or murdered. And let's not pretend you aren't expecting something in return.

@hamncheez: women often take more time off than men to raise children BECAUSE they are paid less.

Review: DT Swiss EX 1700 Spline Wheelset
@muumuu: I don't read BOOKS, Sir. I'm a man of the people and have my websites read to me with an app, thank you very much. I'm not some fancy, highfalutin, cosmopolitan consumer of literature Read BikesBoatsNJeeps comments above about pre stressing. Mostly about consistency I guess. I think as long as you don't have wind up, and you stress enough to seat the spokes in the flange, it should be good enough.

Review: DT Swiss EX 1700 Spline Wheelset
@BikesBoatsNJeeps: now that you mention it, I think I stressed the spokes by squeezing them by hand at the end per one of those websites. It turned out solid AF and I've been thrashing it on a heavy ass E-Bike. Sounds like your setup is better though, but mine works good enough for the few wheels I'm building.

Review: DT Swiss EX 1700 Spline Wheelset
@BikesBoatsNJeeps: I used to stress relieve wheels on the floor, but the last wheel I built I tried the method of bending the spoke over the flange (some tap the spoke on the flange with a mallet, but that seems sketch to me - BTW if you are not doing one of these, that may be why you are breaking spoke heads - no disrespect meant, it sounds like you've built many more wheels than me, but I read that from Wheel Fanatic as well as Sheldon Brown), and did a 1/16th reverse turn on each nipple every time I tightened. No other stress Relief required. It's by far the best wheel I ever built.
