Hi All, This morning I was readjusting the headset on my '89 Cannondale crit bike (no idea why it's loosened up) and the Vuelta was on the tube. While piddling with the bike my attention centered on the front forks of those on TV. I guess there's a good reason for them to have no offset, but I prefer the gracefull offset on my bike's fork, and in it's day was a pretty serious race bike.
My questions are a) Why no offset anymore? and b) Just for my own piece of mind, what is the term for the reason that one BB nut and one crankarm pedal are reverse threaded... I know the term, but just can't remember.
