About MeMy name is Greg Heil, and I am the Editor in Chief for Singletracks.com. I've been mountain biking seriously since 2005, and I love to travel and ride new trails. My travels have taken me across the United States multiple times. To date (April 2017), I have ridden well over 650 different trail systems in 20 different US states and 6 foreign countries, and am adding more singletrack to my trail resume every year! I enjoy all types of mountain biking, from ultra endurance cross country all the way up to chair lift-accessed downhill runs.

Sure, but if you want to ensure that the screw hits as close to the middle of the stud as possible, seems like it's a good idea to take more exact measurements. If you're hanging some hand tools from the track, that's one thing. If you're hanging 120lbs of mountain bikes that could be worth…

Yes, Shimano 9, 10 and 11 speed all use the same hub. Keep in mind that you’ll be investing a decent chunk of change into the cassette, derailleur, shifter and chain.
Interesting start to the year for me, but it's beginning to look up. I started slow due to ACL rehab, and then I thought I was crushing it....and then I went backsliding...
