    I don't know anything about ......

    Complete that sentence. Silly idea for a thread, and it'll probably end up being a short thread, but I thought it might be kind of a nice change of pace.

    My list is way too long, but I'll start.

    I don't anything about brifters or ergo.

    But I'm learning. As I do every day here.

    Campagnolo. With that said, a bicycle I acquired yesterday has some Campagnolo on it. It's my first Italian steed! New thread coming soon!

    ...building wheels. Although I have built a set under the careful watching eyes of my nephew. I still just can't get my mind wrapped around it well enough to feel confident to do a set on my own.

    Don't know much about history...

    Seriously, could stand to know more about rebuilding hubs. Been real hit and miss on my rebuilds, and need some better cone wrenches.

    Stupid modern wheels!! Jeez you'd think they could make it less complicated. The hubs all seem to have their own way of going together, and don't get me started on the multitude of different spoke nipples. I saw some yesterday that looked like a reverse (male)torx? The spokes are another thing. I have been trying to fix a wheel for a week and a half now, and they had to be ordered. The nipples didn't come with the spokes, so I had to call in again. Seriously? wtf?,,,,BD

    Brifters, and clipless pedals. I suppose I should give them both a try

    Direct drive bikes! I was doing a local tv interview for a nonprofit I started this year and the interviewer asked how I felt about direct drive bikes. I was caught a little off guard because our focus is used bikes....we dont see very many of those (if any at all!)

    ...a heavy repainted frame I picked up on CL for no good reason. I also don't know anything about those funky shifters built into brake levers, flip flop hubs, chain tensioners, deep v rims, servicing hubs/pedals/BBs, etc. with sealed bearing cartridges, and countless other things I don't know I don't know.

    Vintage Campy. I know the theory but not the practice.

    Mountain bikes, they are just too heavy and the tires are too fat for me to get terribly interested in. My son has one, but I just recently built him a nice SR bike with touring bars, sort of a lightweight beach cruiser. He never rides the mountain bike anymore.

    If my coworker was here, he could finish it with....Freewheels. Honestly, my 24 year old coworker(who now has an internship as a mechanical engineer I might add!) took the rear wheel off of an 86 Schwinn Traveler, stared quizzically at the rear hub, and then turned to me. "How do you take this thing off?".,,,,BD

    Peugeots are awesome!?

    The most important thing to learn about brifters, is to make absolutely sure they're shifted all the way down before you feed a cable through. I did that a couple of times by accident... NEVER again!,,,,BD
