I don't set the adjustment screw the same for all bikes. It's dictated by a lot of factors such as max cog, chain gap, tire clearance, etc. Rather than restate what T-Mar already wrote with great...

I was laid off from work last month. Strangely, despite the extra time, both my riding and wrenching have dropped off dramatically. On top of the lack of commuting miles, I feel a responsibility to...

Great to hear. I've been wanting an excuse to try out their service, but I'm swimming in spare tubulars and tend to do my own repairs. Still nice to know they've served you well. I understand they...

That's a fantastic find, especially at that price. I daresay it may be too nice for commuting unless he has a really secure place to store it (sounds like he doesn't). And please teach the boy how...

I like the current wheels, too. I would stick with those wheels if you still have them. C-record hubs are hard to beat, even if they do not match the rest of the tri-color group you are gathering.

For what it's worth, I do find the tension 7401 on pedals is stiffer than other Look pedals of the period and can take a bit more force to click in compared to other Look or SPD pedals. But not so...

As for Froome breaking the rules, yes, there is a rule against finishing without your bike as well as advancing on the course without your bike. So, technically, yes Froome broke the rule. But it...

You do have the correct cleats, right--i.e., the older delta Look cleats rather than the newer Keo cleats?

Also, I would suggest against the "tin/aluminum foil trick" on the chrome. It's not really fixing it, but rather flaking off the aluminum into/onto the chrome pits, which gives a fine appearance but...
