    We have been blessed to have many very helpful members over the years on this site.  One such member is @matty-f.  Matt is always ready to help and armed with all the info we’ve needed to solve many of our bike setup and maintenance issues.

     

    As part of the new site, Matt will have his own weekly column, Just Ask Matt.  In this column,  Matt will select 1-3 topics from here in this new Tech Talk forum and respond to them in his column.    You’re free to ask whatever you like here, but the more specific the question the more likely it is to get a response.  If you would like to have your questions considered for the column, simply tag your post with Just ask Matt.  It’s important that you tag it correctly so that we can all search this and Matt can find the topics which you have identified as being one for him to consider.

    Matt will also be writing some more involved technical features that are sure to provide us with all kinds of useful information to make our bikes and gear work at their best.  These features will also be reposted here for further discussion.

    We look forward to your questions and the solutions that Matt provides.

    Thanks Matt, we’re lucky to have you here!

    I’m excited I get the oportunity to do this. Thanks Marc for ringing me and asking me to join the RFG team.

    Note that while I’ll obviously pay attention to posts tagged Just Ask Matt, I browse this forum regularly, and will often consider general, untagged posts as well if I feel I can contribute to them in the column.

    Hey is it true you can decontaminate brake pads by putting them in the over/bbq at a high temp? I have older XT hydraulics and it’s a pain in the ass to find pads.

    @prestonmtb

    It’s possible that it’s the hub, but most commonly this is caused by the wheel being thrown so out of true that the tire rubs the frame. Take a look at the inside of the seat and chain stays to see if the tire is pinned up against it.

    @prestomtb I don’t mind taking a look if you haven’t been able to pin point the issue yet. Let me know.
