    Bike stand arrives today from Amazon. Cost seems to have gone up but I paid $229 with prime shipping. Very solid and folds up nicely. Same/similar one is available from CCR under a different name...but basically same cost, no customs and this one comes with an Uber cool tray!

    update about my rear wheel grinding noise - went into the bike shop today on 12th ave with my rear wheel. told the guy (james) my story and he diagnosed the problem in 1.5 seconds. it's called the "mavic howl" or the "mavic death squeal"

    the hub and bearings are fine but the inside bushel is made of a hard white plastic which gets worn down over time/with use. this then vibrates against the hub during free wheeling to make the noise if i understood it correctly. he did a quick clean, lube of that area which may help temporarily but didn't have that piece in stock so have ordered it in ($50) and the system will be good as new once installed.

    I've had that on a couple Mavics as well. I changed to a well reviewed hubdoctor freehub off ebay (like this - careful to get the right one but you can contact the seller https://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-Up-HUB...sAAOSwo6lWK74Y) which uses bearings instead of the plastic bushing and haven't had any issues in about 3000km. Apparently you're still supposed to lubricate but I haven't touched it yet. I got new pawls as well which are slightly noisier. He sells better quality bushings too.

    I just did the exact relube procedure on my wife's mavic wheel. Seems better, but still drags. Thanks for the info on the freehub part - I might order their new bushing or the entire freehub.

    I have seen this rack for sometime now and thought of getting it for my bikes. It's a little expensive but I think worth it especially for full carbon bikes.

    That is cool. I'm looking for something like that. I've seen some cheaper ones that look similar on Amazon. Does anyone have any experience with this brand or the amazon ones?

    Finally a nice day to strip

    Anyone recommend a specific grease for the ball bearings?

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Perfect thanks @ercchry ! I have bearing grease

    Where do you go for parts locally? Need tyres, tube, saddle, and grips. Paint soon!

    You’ll probably need a combo of shops if you’re searching for stuff in stock... Ridley’s supplies most shops with inventory, usually a safe bet... MEC carries Brook saddles

    Holy shit you read my mind. I’m looking for a B66. Or is the B17 adequate? No shocks on this bad boy but would only see pavement anyways

    Most shops get their stuff from distributors not Ridleys. Ridleys gets their stuff from the same distributors.

    For regular stock... I’ve been at a couple shops though when they’ve actually called Ridley’s for stuff and send a runner to grab it
