Why do Shimano make these things so hard to remove? The splines of hard the removal tool never go in far enough, so as soon as you apply some needed pressure it slips. You have to apply a clamp/screw & washer to keep it in place.

Yup, cleaned it up and sounds like a cement mixer, unfortunately due to the weird sizing I've had to order one from eBay and put this back in for the moment. Once the cassette/chainrings are on there way out I'll upgrade to a better model.

Glad I went tubeless. Pulled this out my tire after a ride home, might of been there for a few days and not even noticed. After pulling this out, spun the wheel around a few times and sealed it straight up. Winner.

Totally agree. But if Samsung are putting this into their smart TV's then I'm not buying one. Not that I'd need a smart TV with cable & chromecast as an option.

+Richard Dowd​ this is what I have to deal with in Stoke. Tried on three different networks, it's 4-8mbps in other areas :/

Other times it's no connection at all.

Reason no. 1 i upgraded to a tubeless wheel set that Seb and a few others helped me with. I'm not even sure how long this was in there but pulled it out, spun the tyre and sealed itself after a few revolutions.

Throwing this out there for the people who have Android wear devices. For some reason my jacket seems to activate the watch while cycling (anyone else has similar issues?) so this stops that during this cold weather at the moment until the short sleeves come out when cycling. 
Showear is the most configurable lock screen for Android Wear.Using the app...

Tried that. It just so happens that a double tap was simulated while cycling around. So unlocked itself.

I'm hoping someone in here can help me. I've recently had some wheels built as the hub was busted in the old one after having it a couple of years. But what's confusing me is the new rim specifies 599x25. I'm seriously struggling to A. Get my current tyre to fit B figure out if I need to buy some new tyres to fit the darn things. All I keep getting is wheelchair wheels on the results from Google.

For reference I was using some rubber queens 26x2.2 but obviously this seems to be wrong.

+Johnathon Thompson I used to take one side of the tyre off the rim and clean inside . Over time the sealant hardens and sticks to the rim . If you get lots of punctures and ride a lot then of course you'll use up more sealant so depends how much you ride and depends how much you put in to begin with . Also in winter time because of the cold it speeds up the hardening process of the sealant . 

So only put in as much sealant relative to where and how much you ride .
