    actually i think the chain checker is not to be underestimated. If you religiously check your chain and replace it, i bet you save tons on chainwheels.

    I’m 35 years old and live in Fayetteville NC, I haven’t ridden a mountain bike since I was 15 years old but just a few weeks ago I purchased a 2021 Cannondale Trail Bike, I don’t really know much about bikes but the guy at the store told me it was best option to go with considering the specifics of my time away from biking, I don’t know any other bike riders so I trusted the salesman word but is there anyone here who knows about the Cannondale brand who could possibly tell me something I should know or did I make a good purchase or was had and does anyone have any useful and helpful tips they could give to an old fart who’s trying to get back in shape while having fun? I would greatly appreciate it 👍🏽

    Dummy pedal... that only works on ONE SIDE as the thread on the other crank is reversed (and in my opinion they put them on the wrong side as a jamming bearing would undo a loose pedal... but that's another story)... Better off just using a set of cheap pedals that have the nut on the front instead of the hex in the tip (or has both)... and make sure you use the correct thread for the correct side.

    Knobby Knife. Good for Motorcross tyres (if your cheap like me). Pointless for Mountain bike tyres as by the time the knobs are rounded, the ones in the middle are probably non existent, go buy a new tyre!

  • McQueezi

    Alright so basically the cassette/gears on my bike are good and all but even in the highest gear it’s easy to pedal it and I end up going so fast that my pedals feel like they’re in first gear. What is a good gear set that I could swap out so that I could go faster and have more resistance in the top gear

  • yeet.748

    There is more use to the cable puller. Put it right behind the cable ferrule, when new cables are installed, before connecting to the derailleur. Then pull hard on it and leave it under tension for a minute or so. The cable and ferrules will bed in nicely to each other. This way it's much more unlikely you have to readjust the derailleur after some time of riding.

    The Tension Meter is insane probably more like a Road Bike thing but its worth it if you wanna get high spoke tension without overshooting any limits some do it by sound but that's only usefully to compare them not so much for a absolute reading ...

    Did I miss the part that says this is a paid promotion? ....of a very expensive bike tool company? So many options out there just as good and for a fraction of the price. The only good thing about them is the extremely wide selection, occasionally they are the only option. Otherwise, save your your hard earned $$$ and go with a cost efficient brand.

  • trogdoor17

    I totally need a cable puller whenever I tune my derailleur. I’d rather not get my hands greasy if I could help it.

    Hey Seth. If you do see this maybe try the “zip-tie” method when truing disc rotors so just put the zip-tie on the lower part of the fork for the front or maybe the seat/chain stay if it’s the rear and true it like a wheel kinda with the “dt2”. Like I said Feel free to try this however I don’t know if this will work with all bikes and forks. Love your vids have a great day!

    The tire numb cutter is for dirt bikers since I am one I do use one and it is really helpful. But our tire numbs are bigger so it’s more useful

    Added tip for anyone using the headset cup remover - push a longer size gear tie bent into a u shape through the headtube and up into the cup remover. When it pops the cup is just left hanging on the gear tie instead of flying across the room. (for those not familiar with them, gear ties are basically bendable pieces of wire with rubber coating)
