    The tool for pulling on a cable is a 4th hand tool. 3rd hand tools basically hold the pads to the rim. They're sort of rare beasts these days, but they're useful for setting up cantilevers and pretty much critical for setting up rollercams if fortune frowns upon you. I am That Guy at work who constantly makes this correction.

    For people looking for a cheaper option for the internal routing tool, get fish tape. Fish tape works the same way and is generally used on boats and costs like 25 bucks on amazon

    Instead of using the cable routing tool, put dental floss in the frame and use a vacuum cleaner to suck it out of the port you want it to end up in and it eventually comes out and you can then tape your cable to it and pull it out.

    This time i am sereously disapointed. I always felt you are the Hacks and Bodges guy who is showing us how to use tools and things we already have. But i was proven wrong Seth, this time you are showing us how to spend a fortune on tools no one realy needs. I know i know all of these park tool gadgets are really nice and i also love Calvin. But in my opinion the real challenge is to make the job without buying all the specific tools you barely need. So please please Seth, get the Hack again. Best regards yout long time fan

    I’m 35 years old and live in Fayetteville NC, I haven’t ridden a mountain bike since I was 15 years old but just a few weeks ago I purchased a 2021 Cannondale Trail Bike, I don’t really know much about bikes but the guy at the store told me it was best option to go with considering the specifics of my time away from biking, I don’t know any other bike riders so I trusted the salesman word but is there anyone here who knows about the Cannondale brand who could possibly tell me something I should know or did I make a good purchase or was had and does anyone have any useful and helpful tips they could give to an old fart who’s trying to get back in shape while having fun? I would greatly appreciate it 👍🏽

    Dummy pedal... that only works on ONE SIDE as the thread on the other crank is reversed (and in my opinion they put them on the wrong side as a jamming bearing would undo a loose pedal... but that's another story)... Better off just using a set of cheap pedals that have the nut on the front instead of the hex in the tip (or has both)... and make sure you use the correct thread for the correct side.

    Knobby Knife. Good for Motorcross tyres (if your cheap like me). Pointless for Mountain bike tyres as by the time the knobs are rounded, the ones in the middle are probably non existent, go buy a new tyre!

    There is more use to the cable puller. Put it right behind the cable ferrule, when new cables are installed, before connecting to the derailleur. Then pull hard on it and leave it under tension for a minute or so. The cable and ferrules will bed in nicely to each other. This way it's much more unlikely you have to readjust the derailleur after some time of riding.
