I really noob one about this matter, but Was introduced to the product by the bike shop owner when I took the tyre to to be checked. Changed inner tube. So I bought one can, now it is in my saddle bag all the time. Lol 😀

If you go to the url link I sent, you can read that it can be used on both tube or tubeless tyre.

Hi,

I have an old folding bike, XDS AFB360, 20" 8x2 speed, changing gear from 1>2>3>4>5>6>7>8 is smooth, but from gear 8>7>6>5>4>3>2>1, 8>7 is not smooth and sometime cannot be shifted. Could it be the rear derailleur or 'teeth' problem?

By the way, how can I check if my bike is having cassette or freewheel? Thinking of changing it.

One more thing, how can I find out the bike's fork is made of what type of material, I tried to use magnet test, the fork was not be attracted to a magnet, could it be made of aluminum alloys?

I tried to search some info about the XDS AFB360 bike model, no much info on the web.

Thanks for your feedback in advance!

hi guys, recently i bought used Tern Link N8 for my wife.

she have problem when uphill due to single chain ring at 52T. thinking of buying 45T chairing to ease up a bit. do i need to cut the chain later? how do i want to check the bcd? didn't see any indicator/mark on the crankset..

if i want to upgrade to double chain ring, is there such a thing like special adapter for the front derailleur? is it this one https://bicyclebuysell.com/item/208890/daho...railleur-hanger

i know there is braze on clamp, low clamp, high clamp and etc..just now go to bicycle shop and that guy said if want to upgrade double chain ring just prepare 700-800 and i was like wtf so expensive lol

Allow me to suggest changing the cassette instead of a double chainring. Much cheaper and easier to swap. Since the original is an 8-speed, I'd suggest looking for an 8-speed wide ratio big sprocket. Something like 11-42t. That would give you the lower gears for easier climb without having to change cranks and add derailleur. Much less hassle. Only the rd cage might or might not be changed but rd cage is cheap enough if it needs to be changed anyway.

in some cases, u need to change the chain coz hassle free. but if ur lbs are kind and good enough, they will extend your chain and make it longer.

try to scout 8s casette with mega range ratio.if im not mistaken the biggest cog for 8s casette is 34t is available. do remember also ur rd be either medium or long cage to accomodate that casette (in some cases rd can be tune up)

bro can you determine this rd is medium or long cage? hahaa..

btw the casette is already at 32T..if change to 34T would make no difference right..
