  1. I would check out other videos on how to remove the wheel. At least if you want to remove the wheel without getting chain grease all over your hands. Is this a degree at UO??? :-)

  2. With respect to the smallest gears or "hardest" gears, to which number (on a bicycle where the shift levels are numbered) would those gears correspond?

  3. University of Oregon Bike Program??? He must be a Super Saiyan IV Hipster.

  8. Man!. Everything you say in the video is Mickey Mouse. I was hoping for you to teach how to align the wheel which is where I have a problem with. I mean, the tire moves from side to side. How can I explain it?.
