    any chance you can tap a bunch of 15mm nuts so that they have 10-32 threading on the inside? cause, like you said, 10-32 nuts are tiny -- certainly too wimpy looking for a bike. the alternative is to get a pair of allen-bolted nuts from qbp for $2 each (part # qr5500 -- on page 483 in the new catalog).

    also: mcmaster-carr is IN-***ing-credible. wow. they have so much ****ing ****!

    actually, mcmaster doesn't have it, or anything close. the longest 10-32 thing they have is a 6" bolt, but it's got a tiny flat-head screw head, so you'd need to augment it with big old washers. better to go to home depot, get the 12" 10-32 rods for like 89 cents each, cut them in half, and toss two hex nuts on there...

    mcmaster has, um, pretty much everything else you could want, though, that's for sure. and they probably ship stuff in a sac...

    plain and zinc-plated steel threaded rods, 10-32 in various lengths 1/2" up to 72"
    the whole catalog is online, not sure about the easiest way of going to a specific page of it though.
    edit: maybe this link will work...

    oh yeah, that was a brain fart over here...i thought you were referring to the QBP catalog. i can't believe how much of a ****ing pain in the *** it must have been for mcmaster to put all of their itty bitty products, in all shapes, sizes, coatings, quantities, colors, gauges, etc online...it's incredible, really.

    i think the way to go iszinc-plated steel. (if only they had just plain stainless, but whatever)
    part # 95475A525 = bag of 25 6" 10-32 rods, perfecto for front skewers (exactly the same, actually, as front skewers). $13, and I'll gladly share. hopefully poopncow can create some 15mm (or similar) hex nuts...or else we go with QBP.

    non-track front hubs, i loathe thee no more. problem solved! ok, almost solved!

    you are almost always better off going with something you can buy off the shelf. I really don't feel like looking for a chunk of metal that I can fashion into a nut, and then have to drill it and tap it (and run the risk of snapping a $12 tap in it) when you can buy the **n**a**6 for $2. For me, at this point it is an excercise in fun stuff you can make for cheap...which is always cool . If only we can also create a fastener head that no one else can remove, then I will be really interested in MAKING those nutz.
    Remember, you are torquing on that thin little 10-32, so you can easily pull it into 2 parts. I watched one of my guys use an 18 inch wrench to snap a bunch of 1" threaded rods while setting a 32 inch journal bushing (he was angry and wanted to prove a point). so best to use a good grade steel.

    Meanwhile, my mine wonders off and starts thinking about fasteners for plastic part in auto interiors that may have 10-32 threading and oversized flanges. Or that knob on my night stand or cabinettes that also have 10-32 threads....lalala

    Laundry, build bikes, clean, ride...yes ride!!!!

    will sparks at this time of the night keep me awake?
    how did I end up with 2 front brake calipers?
    darn those tufo tubular clincher tires work! and look great!
    would this saddle make my butt look even fatter?
    would installing a chromed Colnago straight blade fork on a Kalavinka just so that I can run front brakes make me look fat, or will it just get me beat up by roving gangs of NJS kitted film majors?

    Sigh......

    OK I just got my new wheels in yesterday (WooHoo!). I usually go to the bike shop to get any adjustments, parts mounted, or repairs for fear that I'll f**k something up (leave it in the knowing hands of professionals). Well I've been feeling pretty lazy having them do everything for me, so I thought

    "Hey, putting a tire 'n' tube on should be a pretty easy intro. into doing things myself from now on, right?"

    WRONG!

    First it was alot harder than I thought getting that goddamned tire the whole way around the rim and don't get me started on that last little three or four inches of tube that refused to clear the rim and get under the tire.

    So I finally get everything together. I properly inflated the tire to the recommended 120psi. I squeezed the rim and carefully inspect every inch of that thing. I have a seat, wipe my brow, admiring my hard work and patting myself on the back. I think to myself

    "Take that wheel! You thought you would beat me, Ha Ha, but you were wrong. You're just an inanimate object, and I'm an intellegent human being."

    No sooner did I complete my thought befor BANG!! Th f**ker exploded on me.

    I'll be taking everthing to the LBS bright and early tomorrow.

    you probably didn't have the bead seated completely in the rim right. i do that too. no biggie. new tube, try again, look to make sure the tire is completely in the rim.

    CALLING ALL PIRATE ALCOHOLICS-IN-DENIAL and CHAMPION DRINKERS!
    anyone up for some high life countdown? 5pm asylum $.25 pints?
    Ring me up, brothers and sisters, and see me there!
    Pre-bar ride funness and post-bar foodness may ensue as well... and maybe even some post-bar trivial pursuit if anyone wants...

    Hey, thanks for the tips, and good to see you're back safe and sound.

    I have a question for you (since you yousta' work there) does City Bikes regularly carry the tubes with the longer stems for deep-v rims? I need to go there anyway this morning cuz I need them to mount the new cog and lockring on my new wheel set, since I don't have the tools for that.

    yup, every bike shop should carry longvalve tubes. city bikes does, and i think just about everywhere else does too.

    i'm awake, have a lockring wrench, and have extra longvalve tubes. call if you want.

    and give us a shout out if you're in AM. I think tink and i may ride this AM, but I'm likely to turn it into a 30 mi brunchfest. you should come.

    ok, let's just do this...
    the 4pm get julie drunk early so that she quits whining about jet lag ride.

    4pm, sherwood (14th & K)
    we'll ride out the Cap Crescent trail to Bethesda, then ride Wisc Ave back to civilization and get drunk at asylum between 5-7 on $.25-$.75 pints. If anyone is silly enough, we can get dinner elsewhere (or at asylum, of course) and I'm keeping the trivial pursuit board at the ready just in case.
