    New Derailleur Jockey Wheels; Wait Until I get a new chain/cassette?

    A month ago I took apart my derailleur to clean it and accidentally dropped one of the spacers down the drain while cleaning it (womp womp womp, laugh at me if you want). The chain rubs against the outside of the derailleur cage as a result; still shifts fine but I need to get new jockey wheels...

    New bike geometries and sizing

    Some of you may remember that I built up a new-fangled, model year trail bike this summer (and cracked it very quickly, but that’s another story). I was really excited for the bike, and while I knew going in that companies like Santa Cruz were making bikes longer, lower and slacker, I didn’t...
