The question has probably been discussed before but what are peoples preference to chain lube.
Wet?
Dry?
I currently use a dry lube, smax wax which seems to work ok until the chain gets wet. I find that I'm cleaning and re applying lube after every ride. Every few rides I give the entire drive train a clean.

On the road bike I used a wet lube, whilst this attracks grit and grime it seems to leave the chain running smoothly.

What is the best chemicals/cleaning products to use when cleaning the dirty black grit out of components?

Single speed conversion Advice

I thought I would have a crack at converting my old 2002 Giant Yukon to single speed.

It has just dawned on me that I may have to get a new crank set.
Ive never pulled it apart and I dont even know what the Bottom Bracket looks like.

I found the Archive specs for the 2002 Yukon.

The Crank is a Shimano Acera, after doing some research I think my bottom Bracket is a JIS square taper 68mm.
Can I do a single speed conversion with this?

Buy a bike for Christmas

Why buy gifts that will be burried in the garage or closet and rarely get used. Put that cash to better use and buy a bike.

Get into gear with this great gift, because everyone loves a bike. UNICEF has found that in some parts of the world a bike is one of the most important modes of transport for villages.

It is particularly helpful for health workers to reach vulnerable children in remote communities. It is often used to transport other Inspired Gifts like the vaccine carrier.

Restored hunting trails from the description ... nice scenery and great rock armouring. ... not sure about the white pebbles, but doesn't seem to be scattered all over the place.

31.8 riser bar needed

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I have a mate who wants to replace his narrow, flat bar with a nice wider riser bar. If anyone has one with a 31.8 clamping area, let me know.

I could get one off T7 as they're cheeeeeap, but I CBF!
