What have you done to your bike today?

Sanded & lubed my dropper post. It has been sticking (not returning up) lately.
I saw scuff marks on the shaft, so I sanded it and lubed it. Maybe some bad junk got down in it past the seal.
Ran it up & down a few times, hope this helps it. My LBS said if I get two years out of the dropper I'm doing good.
We'll see.
WORKS LIKE A CHARM!

where did you send them to be rebuilt?
Sent the fork and seat post to Fox which I believe is Push here on the east coast. They talked me into new stanchions on the fork. Probably cost me way more than having a lbs do it. They did come back looking almost new. Let’s see how they perform.

Unless the LBS has a nitrogen fill setup, they're not doing a full teardown of a shock. The damper needs to be charged with it... That's what the little nylon ball at the bottom of the slider is. At something like $7000+, that's out of the purvey of most "local" shops.

There are a few authorized service centers, including Fox in North Carolina.

That’s the place I sent them back to.

The last couple of times I've ridden my Trek I've not been able to shift onto the biggest cog. I know that I had to shift the limit screws for the other wheelset so I figured that must have been the problem. I disconnected the cable and reset the limits(which weren't that far off at all, maybe half a turn). Turns out when I last replaced the cable(coincidentally right before I blew up the old hub hence the new wheel), I didn't have the shifter shifted all the way down. Wow do I feel dumb. At least it's now working the way it should.

Lost this last night on the fat bike while changing some parts
Where do you get a replacement bolt and cable clampy part for a Shimano derailleur?

Enter the part number stamped on it, preceded by "ev-". Look up the associated part, bring to dealer with a Shimano account, and order. Online is a bit of a crap-shoot, since tiny parts have bad margins.

Of course, they should know how to do it, too...

Do you need special dropouts for CK fun bolts? Can't fit the bolt on the threaded side of a ROS9. Took off the hanger to check if it goes through. Way too thin to ride this way
