    Fisher cr_7 Bottom bracket query

    Hi, Only ever saw these with circlip grooves back in the day but if they are not there then you’ll have to install everything like a Klein does and use loctite. Mark

    help for dismantling and servicing a trek mogul fork.

    So maybe there is another circlip at the top of the lower section once you remove the seal/bushing? As shown in one of your images....then the lower section is gently tapped with a hammer and block of wood to separate from the stanchion.

    Specialist KLEIN bike shops??

    Hi Connor, You have a late nineties/early noughties Klein with a conventional 1 1/8” headset from what I see so you have plenty of options and any good bike shop can help as no special Klein tools are needed for headset or bottom bracket. Mark

    Klein Headset Compatability

    Hi there, It will not be a straight fit I’m afraid. Although the Adroit and Attitude frame tubes were the same the headset was different. You could make it work but the Adroit would need an adaptor set so you could run the 1 1/8” fork Mark

    20mm through axle to 9mm QR adaptors?

    Hello all, A couple of years ago I obtained a lovely set of Ritchey disc xc wheels from this site. Wheels are still going strong but they are 20mm through axle and I have a possible need to fit to a different bike/fork running a 9mm QR. I see 15mm axle adaptors but confused over the...

    Revisiting DDS3 - a 1992 Trek 9000 Fork

    Hi, It’s been 25 years since I worked on one of these but fluffychicken is correct from memory. Expel the air then gently push down on the valve/metal top section (a suitable sized socket works) and this will expose a thin wire circlip on the inner stanchion. Use a thin bladed screwdriver to...

    Resurrecting 1997 Klein Mantra Comp

    Yes it's a 97. The weld between the pivot ears and down tube was a weak point, main reason the yellow rear ends were replaced with black ones very soon after release. Check all the welds carefully, if not cracked by now you should be ok.

    Klein 1999 MC2/MC3 Headset / Fork options

    Don't think so... I might be wrong but the Klein steerer was something like 1.5" to 1.3" tapered. The new all taper to 1 1/8" (although I've not got a bike newer than 2002 so happy to be wrong!) A good workshop could machine a Klein steerer that could fit to a modern fork, just depends on...

    Klein 1999 MC2/MC3 Headset / Fork options

    Hi there, MC3 is really just the branding on the stem. The frame uses the same bearings as MC2 so plenty of options to purchase them if required like from Jon at Not used the reset racing stuff but good quality I hear. This does however mean you need to run a straight 1 1/8"...
