How to Replace Shimano Pressfit Bottom Bracket

In this how to I will be showing you how to replace your Pressfit Bottom Bracket. This method can be used on most of the pressfit from Shimano to BB30. Please note that this is not the recommend method from Shimano or any manufacturer in a sense, it's more of a home mechanic style so please take care when working and again I can't be liable for any of your damages. I could have taken this to the bike shop and get it done but what fun would that be and then I won't be publishing this post for you to read.

How To Install & Adjust Your Rear Derailleur

This How-To can be used on road bikes with Shimano rear derailleurs whether you are installing a new derailleur or adjusting your dysfunctional derailleur. This guide can be used on most Shimano derailleurs with some small variance on some models but the principle of installing and adjustments are the same.

If you are looking at tuning your shifting performance or to re-index your gears or performing a maintenance on your rear derailleur, disconnect your gear cable, turn in your barrel adjustment and jump on to Step 2.

How to replace hydraulic disc brake pads

In this guide I will be working on the Shimano Deore M596. This guide can be used for most hydraulic pad replacement. They all share the same principle of two moving pistons, pushing on the pads with a spring sandwich in between the pads to push them out as you release the leaver. In face the pistons themselves move back as you release the brake leaver, the springs in between the pads are there just to make sure that the pads stay in the correct place.
