Today's bike #bike ride went well.
Apparently I didn't secure the cotter pin on my front brake pads. The pads fell part way out. Had to break the rear pin in half to be able to secure the front pads.
The cut was from trying to bend the brake pad clip straight, since the caliper as pushing on a loose set of pads (thus bending the clip).
Electricians! I'm having an issue with an inline potentiometer on a light switch. My question is, while the potentiometer is off, or even somewhere in the middle, the voltage between the input and output (the two red circles) should NOT be 120v, correct? I'm reading a steady 120v whether off, in the middle, or on full.
Can anyone explain why my front disc brake on my #mtb sounds this godawful? I don't see anything in the pads. It does it after a few minutes of use, goes away some if I make them hot (by "riding the brake"), but then comes back.
It will do this... creep up and up to around 80mbps, drop, and then crawl up again.
What is this behavior? Normal for home networks?
