  • Bike: indexed shifters: 8 vs 7?

    My bike (Raleigh) has 7 cogs on the rear and shifters with 7 positions. Now, the shifters are worn (rachet mechanism worn) and I have some shifters with 8 positions. Is the spacing between the cogs the same so that I can use the 8 shifters and just adjust the limits so that only 7 positions are used? Thanks in advance for you help...

Am I correct that iPhones do not handle Flash? Any hep would be greatly appreciated.

Is there some sort of little circuit card that is unique that can be swapped? Thanks for any help that you can offer..

Also, I don't get any credit for answering. I suppose it's a little silly of me but I also feel like I've been taken advantage of. I just answered a question regarding using recursion to get the sum of the squares of an int. I was quite proud of the help that I offered and *** poof *** it's gone immediately. I do boycott posters once I realize that they do this but it does take this first insult for me to know who will do that. Please don't do that.

    I've been using the format(..) method from the Formatter class as a Static method as shown. I can't figure out why I can do that. In other words, I don't see the connection between the String class and the Formatter class that allows me to do that.
