Hey Lou,
Can non finned D01S pads for the the Saint-M810 be used with the new Saint-M820, or have they altered the pad sizing?

Thanks for the what to grease post pedal hound and Lou.

But I am about to press my headset in on my Carbon Operator frame and am wondering if I should use any grease? Aluminum cups and carbon head tube.

The stock cups didn't seem to be greased but that could be factory lack of prep. Thanks!

Fattirerider, I would use a little BLUE, as in loctite, a little lubricant to slide 'em in, then it dries, and cures GOOD!

Santa Cruz recommends grease on their frames.

Lou! Can you get small shimano service parts in, such as the clutch mechanism for an SLX/XT rear derailleur, part number Y5Y198120:

yellowgogx, I dont mind the PARK TS-8 stand.

its fairly stable and can handle most wheels to 29 inches
its one-sided, so you just have to flip the wheel a couple times while working on it…

Retail is $149.99

Hey Lou do you have in stock or can you get retro fit bar clamps for an Ispec SL-M980 shifter.

The raw, primitive, unrefined trails that see little to no maintenance are the kinds of trails that really build skill. What kind of skills do you learn riding a trail that was made by a machine, groomed to perfection and void of any rocks, roots or other obstacles that could send you careening over the handlebars?

I can get the converters from bar clamp to I-Spec, but Shimano does not list the bar clamps as a seperate item…

Let me make a phone call this week…
