I don't know, but again, I think I'll reserve learning until I have something other than pavement below me, and a lighter, better geared bike that I don't have to fuck with then put right back together (I commute on it nearly every day).

And, from another thread just minutes ago:

Pull over, take your lumps and move on. Nobody can afford that kind of fine. It is out of hand.
