Nick has every right to ASK for a break, everyone. We all know we'll get one in due time, but asking never hurt anyone.
Take it easy Nick. PM me or something if you need to talk.

I have 185mm TA Carminas on my road bike, I like them very much. I wouldn't mind a set of surlys for the touring bike but they are a little pricey, I'll live with my 180 ritchey (suginos) for now.
Zinn Cycles makes cranks up to 220mm I think. There is nothing like riding a bike with the right size cranks. 175mm cranks are for clown bikes....someday I'll be able to afford a set of Zinn cranks. The downside is that you don't don't want to guess wrong on a $700 crank. Do you go with the 205mm or the 210mm. Not quite the same as the 172.5mm or 175mm debate, 'cause those folks know they'll be able to trade someone (evenutally).

ISO/WTB - Ferrules for Gran Compe brake levers. I have a set of cheapies that will work (from a *-Mart brake cable set) but I would rather have the right ones eventually.

I don't know if all Gran Compes were the same, so for reference, the cheapies fit two different sizes, and the smaller size is the one that fits the Gran Compe levers I have.

Willing to trade for other small parts from my parts bin, or ???

I will be posting items for trade in the next month or two, once I figure out what I have to put on the block, along with what else I am looking for.

They were not. I did a photo essay on this a couple of months ago (bump it up if you wish to start a discussion about it):

The one on the left is like mine... I think I saw in a search a reference to a threaded ferrule too... so I looked closely to determine that mine isn't threaded.

EDIT: Now looking at the rest of your photo essay, I see that I do need the threaded ferrule... to be "correct".

If yours is the same as the left, you need a non-threaded ferrule.

You're right Kurt.

If your pedal hit the ground on a turn you'd be launched into the air... And hopefully you'd land, still leaning and turning, but a good few feet off from where you started laterally.

Ever done it?

Okay...teach me to fish.

Why not use a crank longer than 190mm on a conventional frame? Because of the likelihood of clipping a pedal?

Got them. WTB decent square taper triple MTB crank w rings in the 48-36-26 realm. Arm length unimportant.

Thanks!

Shimano Bottom Bracket Needed

Last week I posted that I was seeking several Shimano 600 EX Abaresque components for my Giant road bike rebuild, post # 1534 on page 62 of this thread.

I also need to find a Shimano bottom bracket, English thread 68-W-116, Shimano p/n BB-6207, to properly complete this rebuild. NOS would be preferred, but I would gladly accept one in used, very good to excellant condition. Below is a picture of the BB taken from the Velobase web site.

I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but... I just don't see why you would want crank arms that long. It's true that longer arms give more leverage, but in my experience any crank arm over 150 mm or so gives perfectly adequate leverage for my purposes. And it's not because I'm too short (I'm 6'). I gather you're bigger than me (how tall are you?), and can handle something longer; and from your handle I gather you do more off-road riding than I, so longer crank arms may be justified. But longer than 190? I just can't see why anyone would need that.

Can you maintain a cadence of 90 rpm indefinitely? If not, I'd suggest you work on that.

I know, I know, this isn't the answer you were looking for. I'll shut up now.

That, and longer cranks put more strain on your knees. It might not seem to matter when you're young and flexible, but you may change your mind later in life, and by then the damage is already done.

Do you want road pedals or platforms? I've got a set or two of cheap road pedals and you could have either for $10 plus the cost of shipping. Drop me a PM if that meets your need.
