  5. Hi SickBiker (and fans!) I own a Systemsix HM 2020 that I build from scratch and it was my first build experience, so I'm not an expert but have experience with bike servicing (and watching SickBiker !) I already did maintenance on headsets and stems on different bikes and always managed to get it right (no play !) With the systemsix, I'm not able to remove a very little play/wobble on the headset. It does not move a lot but I can hear it when I apply pressure on the fork. When I brake the front wheel, push down very hard on the stem, I'm able to almost fix the issue
  6. I bought this used aluminium road bike again. It had been with me, when I started my YouTube channel and now I decided to go back and find it on craigslist (or actually a Polish craigslist - like website). This was the best alloy frameset of Cannondale in my opinion. No useless aero features, the sifting cables routed externally (yesss!!!) and of course the only one routed inside the frame, namely the rear brake cable, brakes the housing when turning the handlebars a lot The bike is light (frame weight 1150 g in 56 cm size!), it absorbs small bumps greatly. The SAVE system, along wi
  7. Here are one of the cheapest carbon road bikes you can find, equipped with a high quality components. These are of course just 5 examples, you can use as a comparison for any other racing bike you're looking to buy in 2021:
  8. I've been using Topeak Prepstand for about 3-4 years and it's been one of the most stable stands I tested, but you can buy a cheaper one, with a similar design / frame. I think, that such a frame might work well and it is much cheaper: Conquer portable bike stand. As for the tool, I would rather but one by one, unless you have the budget to buy a big toolset and still lack some specific tools. I'll make a video about that.
  9. I have the same question ?
  10. Square taper crankset / bottom bracket requires special puller (cheap on eBay, Amazon), in order to remove it from the axle. There are some hacks for disassembly though. Here's a great video tutorial, that present view bike hacks for that:

    Fork upgrade ( Recon? vs Markhor )

    Well I also put new tires, wider and tubeless, new hubs and tapered headset with industrial bearings. Bike is unimaginable better than before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Many cyclocross riders have amazing technical skills. Enduro training is probably the closest to how you prepare for such an event, though it requires a lot of endurance.

    Wahoo roam or sigma rox12

    Wahoo Elemnt Roam gets quite good reviews. Sigma ROX 12 had been crashing a lot, when I was testing it in 2018 and 2019 season.
  17. Good news - you've got the cassette and not a freewheel, so your hub / freehub will be compatible with a great budget drivetrain, which is Shimano Claris, that you can get cheap here: eBay, CRC. With the new Claris R2000 you get 2x8 or 3x8 drivetrain, but more importantly stiffer 2-Piece crankset.

    Spongy brakes after bleed and burp

    It isn't very likely, that just by working the brake lever you would have pulled so much air into the leaky system. Try the procedure below + tap the hoses well: https://epicbleedsolutions.com/blogs/guides/how-to-bleed-quad-disc-brakes
  19. Alex, the cable should be routed ABOVE the axle and not below. It might have been done wrong before. Video tutorial below:
  20. 2021 best suspension forks, as a budget Mountain Bike upgrade. In no particular order, top forks, that will make your MTB ride faster and more enjoyable. 1. Manitou Markhor: might be the best in terms of low weight: 1843g (26") 1826/1878g (27.5") 1870/1910g (27.5+/29"), pretty good stiffness as for the 30 mm stanchions (I used the fork in MTB marathons), adjustments: TS air spring hardness, TPC Rebound Damping, Kwik Toggle Compression Damping lockout, 100 mm or 120 mm of travel, for 26", 27.5", 27.5+/29" wheels, 1 1/8 or taper

    Carbon wheels in Poland

    You may contact: https://fitwheels.eu/ (they build pretty good wheels, based od DT Swiss 350 or 240 hubs), http://lampartwheels.com/12-lampart-twoje-kola-karbonowe (they have build for me the 1100 g XC 27.5" wheels).
  22. Friends, I just mounted several bikes on the wall hangers, stands and many other bike storage designs. Here are my first thoughts on what will save you the most space, without damaging your bike. Full YouTube video soon...
  23. From what you say about lowering the tire pressure, you probably want to get more small bump sensitivity. Try to go in two different directions: either lower the air pressure in the fork and add set firmer compression, or actually higher the air pressure and open the compression setting fully. The Judy might feel spongy anyway, but changing a suspension fork to a rigid one and adding just a bit of tire width won't make those "small descends" more enjoyable.

    Fork upgrade ( Recon? vs Markhor )

    Manitou Markhor is the budget fork I raced on the most and for its price I loved it. It's light and stiff enough to be used even in Cross Country races. I know some riders though, who had problems with a little play on the stanchions, from the very beginning. It is also worthy to note, that I had to set 0% SAG on the Markhor, because it is very linear and goes a bit to easy deep in the travel. It has the rebound adjustment and no compression adjustment - just the lockout (I almost never use compression on other forks). It weighs 1875 grams with 1 1/8" steerer. RockShox Recon Sil

    Spongy brakes after bleed and burp

    Hi there, Did you ever find a solution to your problem? I am having the same issue with my brakes. Cheers, Daniel
  26. Shimano Tourney TY21A RD + Shimano TZ31 Megarange. Are they compatible?

    Fork upgrade ( Recon? vs Markhor )

    Hi, I am in the same position coming from an XC30 coil fork. Any updates on your decision? Regards!
