My shimano ultegra left shifter is super stiff/hard to push in; what is going on?

Try flushing out the shifter(s) with WD-40, use plenty. The next step will be replacing the shift cables and cable housings.
  • Take the bicycle in an area free of cars and obstacles, such as an open parking lot. Concentration is required when learning to use Ultegra shifters or any other type of bicycle shifter.
  • 2 Mount the bicycle and rest both hands on the proper Ultegra hand control. The left-hand control operates the front derailleur. The right-hand control operates the rear derailleur.
  • 3 Start pedaling, smoothly and evenly. While pedaling is crucial to propelling the bicycle forward, it is also necessary when shifting the derailleur. Pedaling forces the chain to rotate. The chain must rotate before it can transfer to another gear.
  • 4 Push the outside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller rear gear.
  • 5 Push the inside right Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The rear derailleur will shift the chain to a larger rear gear.
Rear Ultegra Derailleur Control
  • 1 Push the outside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to larger front gear.
  • 2 Push the inside left Shimano Ultegra lever in toward the bicycle. The front derailleur will shift the chain to a smaller front gear.
  • 3 Use the front and rear Ultregra hand controls interchangeably. For small changes in gearing, using the rear control. For larger changes, choose the front control. A smaller gear causes the bicycle to travel a shorter distance per pedal stroke but also requires less energy to use. A larger gear requires greater effort but in turn causes the bicycle to travel farther per pedal stroke.

I am looking to replace Mavic x138 wheelsets on our 2000 kona lavadome bikes. They have lasted well, with about 25000km. of loaded touring but are now cracking round the spoke holes. What replacements...

If you have been happy with the Mavic rims, I would stick with them again. One of the biggest considerations for your application of loaded touring is getting a rim that is strong enough without adding too much additional weight. The skill of the wheel builder is also going to have a dramatic effect on durability. The XC 717 is a cross country rim, available in both disc and standard brake formats with ceramic coated side walls for better stopping if you are using non disc brakes.

The front wheel stutters when the brakes is tensioned

Either you have something on the rim causing the stutter, or your wheel needs to be trued up (much like balancing a car tire).

Cant remember what seting my schwinn speedometer is suposto be at can some one help?

If its model sw 654 like my wifes'You need to first determine the circumference of your front wheel.Try this,with the valve stem at total bottom of the tire ,on the front wheel where you have the sensor mounted,make a mark on a sidewalk.Then slowly move the bike in a straight line, untill the valve,again meets the surface of the sidewalk.With these two marks, measure with a tape measure, on my wifes 26 inch front tire its 82.25 inches.Take these measurements,multiply 25.4[the number in millimeters in an inch} write this number down! Now on model 654 odometer,hold down both the left and right side buttons,there seems to be only one button,but there is two,hold it in for aprox,5 seconds.and this resets the entire unit.The first thing it asks for,is this figure,a four digit number,in millimeters,on my wifes tire it is 2089milllimeters.Enter these numbers in a right to left fashion.Its tricky ,but it is a good unit,in the end if you can't figure it out,buy a new one ,and this time save the instructions,unlike myself!

I cant remove the tyre form my wheel.

I personaly wouldn't recommend loosening any spokes,ive never had to do this and you could get into all sorts of bother trying to straighten up the wheel afterwards.
First make sure that you have let down all the air out of the inner tube (if theres any left).Next with both hands grab the tyre and make sure that the bead of the tyre (where the tyre sits in the rim of the wheel) is loose and away from the rim (sometimes the bead can get stuck against the rim and this will make it much harder to remove the tyre).Do this all the way round the tyre and on both sides.Now if you have a very good quality tyre lever,wet it slightly and the tyre casing as well with some soapy water and try to lever the tyre bead up and over the edge of the rim of the wheel.While holding this position use a second tyre lever in the same way about 2 inches further away and do the same thing.Once you get both levers down you should (hopefully) find the rest of the trye starts to come off a bit easier.Just wiggle and push one of the levers along the bead of the tyre until most of the tyre is off and your there.
Putting the tyre back on is just as much fun!Only try not to use the tyre levers as much as you can very easily damage the new inner tube that your trying to put in.So eat 3 weetabix and you should then have the strength to attempt this.

Good luck

Brake adjustment promax aluminum linear pull

assuming the wheel is centered in the frame and all is working well, the pressure springs need to be adjusted. using the pressure screws (small screw sticking out of thr side of the brake) you can adjust the return pressure of each side. Loosen the screw on the side that is moving a quarter turn, tighten the screw on the side that does not move. squeeze the brake lever, check operation, continue until the brakes work equally.
