Post a view of his back yard from your back yard and I will make my ruling.

of course not. This one was bent from an impact of some kind. It was cracked for a while. If another one fails I'll buy more but Ima roll the dice for now.

Also, they come with the special Mavic proprietary nipple. Needs a special wrench.

And I have to get them used from a salvage dealer on ebay cuz Mavic don't sell them anymore.

The question was about Mojo31 being an a-hole. He is clearly not the a-hole in this instance. Case closed.

Lol, that should have been algicide.

Apple spell check at it again.

His available options do not include illegally discharging into a storm water system or discharging into a neighbors property. Both are prohibited by state statutes, counselor.

By the way, you are not Judge Harvey.

About whether the grass needs to be cut?

Let's say the neighbor has a 14,000 gallon pool.

14000 x 8.3 = 116,200 pounds, give or take.

The next time a nipple ripped out it was close to the end of warranty, maybe just out and they gave me another rim for free. The next time one ripped out I was far from home and got dropped by the group so I tried to limp into the next city and 2 more ripped out so it wouldn't even roll. Ended up taking a cab home for $100. Mavic said no more warranty so I paid for another rim and sold the wheelset after it was fixed.

these have a lot of miles on them. I bought them from a forum member years ago. If they get that bad I'll just part them out on ebay. They don't owe me anything.

Its over 30,000 gallons. Closer to 250,000 pounds.

Oooh, that's a biggun. Ours is 21k but it doesn't have a deep end. Max depth 5'

Ours is about 32-33,000 per the builder. His is about the same, or maybe a bit smaller.

Our max depth is 5.5’, but it’s pretty long and wide.

Not an *******. An ******* would have just called the authorities and got him in trouble. That is the ruling on the field.

The fact that he was doing something illegal doesn't necessarily shield you from also being an a-hole.

If I deliberately drive the speed limit in the "fast lane" to slow people down, am I being an a-hole?

His mentioning the condition of the bushes was irrelevant to the question (tainting our view of the neighbour). But, since he mentioned it, we could judge whether or not he was objectively describing the situation.

The two little prongs on the derailleur, if you haven't gotten it adjusted, should straddle the pokey part of the derailleur hanger. Loosening up and repositioning the pokey part should improve the alignment (and shifting).

Coincidentally, my buddy just sent me a message asking whether it's normal that his Bontrager rear wheel measures 133.54mm OLD. 1.5mm isn't a lot but could make things a little more difficult to install. What does your frame and hub measure?

Now that my riding has changed itís more of an issue. It doesnít rub at all in the saddle, the instant I am out of the saddle it starts rubbing as I sway the bike. Rubs on both sides. Almost like the fork is flexing too much.

There are a lot of times that I can't get a disc brake to not rub. It's likely either a fork flex issue as you mentioned or the brake caliper mounts are not faced correctly.

I like 460s a lot. Those look a lot like Tricolor hubs. I like those a lot, too.

The hubs are 105 SC from the early 1990s.

Cubbies overdid it a little on Saturday!

You really need some momentum to get out of Bristol

back after a nice week long holiday visiting my parents and sister in the North Island. It was good to see them and catch up with them. It is good to be back home though.
