Muddy bike:


After Saturday's ride

Washed bike today:


Wet 'Snatch

Then clean and lubed the chain using Finish Line. Cleaned the rotors with alcohol and realigned the brakes. Now its ready for next week's ride. Poor full suspension bike is hardly used.

I have built bikes, replaced forks and installed headsets and its straightforward and easy. Matanong lang--saan ka nahirapan at papaano mo nasira ang headset?

The only way I can think of para masira yung HS is kung sumobra (as in sobra!) pag-tighten sa bolt sa itaas ng cap. This will likely result in crushing some components on the HS.

Related question: If you don't have a fancy tool for extracting and installing headsets, what's the best way to go about it?

If the bolt on the top cap (over the stem) is over tightened, hindi headset ang masisira. Its the star fangled nut.


Star fangled nut inside the steerer tube

When I was new sa pagkalikot, I almost overtightened it. When I realized it was starting to move, I stopped just in time. My friend actually broke his. You want to tighten the stem bolts first before cranking down on the top cap.

On headsets:

Installing the headset isnt hard. Without the fancy headset press, you can build a DIY tool. Google homemade headset press. Another friend made his own. Or do it the old fashioned hard way--2 x 4 piece of wood, rubber mallet and grease. Make sure the frame has been "faced and chased". Apply grease on the headset cups and the headtube and hammer into placed using the rubber mallet and wooden blocks. Wag lang masyadong malakas ang palo at siguraduhing pantay ang headset. Same applies when using a press. This is how I installed mine.

In regards of headset removal, you can use PVC pipe that is smaller than the head tube. Kakapain mo yung edge ng headset cups (patabingi ang pasok) sa loob ng headset then hit with rubber mallet. Dahandahanin ang pagpalo para pantay din ang labas ng headset.
