I just read the Sheldon chart (I saw that webpage earlier today but did not scroll waaaay down). The 28mm recommended falls just outside Sheldon's range but within biketiresdirect's, right at their...

I got out my calipers and measured 20mm outside and 13.5mm inside width, although sitting here on my couch, that doesn't make a lot of sense. Checked it twice though. I totally agree this narrow rim...

Here's the deal.
A friend just bought a touring bike with...

I see. I had made a cursory reading of the post and missed that detail.

As far as Sheldon, I may have read that years ago when I did the Peugeot trick. It sounds familiar, and can't remember...

English cups, Japanese spindle

Can't he use the existing English cups (leave them in the BB), and just install the Japanese spindle and cranks?

Coincidentally, I was planning on doing this, this afternoon, before I saw this...

Shimano PD-1056 and PD-6800 pedal compatibility

I just got a pair of these old PD-1056 pedals off a used bike a friend bought.
My son is running the Ultegra PD-6800 SPD-SL pedals on his road bike.

Are these two pedal sets compatible, using...

That's a great find! They look fine aesthetically for vintage bikes, imo. I've filled two or three quality 22.2mm stems for my various Peugeots but would have been happy with one of these.

I've put those zefals on three of my bikes, and have two more sets ready to install. I like them so much more than the old clips and straps. Easy to get in/out of and seem to be as effective.

yeah, I'm probably more comfortable in city traffic than I have any right to be. Will have to be extra careful in London, since my spidey sense may be thrown out-of-whack with traffic being reversed....

formerly sponsored by Barclays, now by Santander.

I'll be in London in June for a week and want to use their bike share network to get around. I've used it in NYC and DC before with great utility....

I'm impressed how nice the paint looks now. That was using steel wool and WD40?

Anyway, re: the bent dropout. I've fixed that type of bend with a very large crescent wrench. Mine is about 18" so...

It's interesting in that the seat tube is close about 60cm, but more importantly the top tube is 56cm. That always seemed strange to me, but actually it meant it fit me pretty well. Just looked a...

I see someone mentioned Faggin. I've got one that's technically 2-4 cm too big for me, if you can use a 60cm. Still, it's one of my favorite steel frames. Campy GS equipped. It's also got those...

keep in mind that WD-40 is more of a degreaser than a lube. My LBS mechanic told me that's what he uses to clean his chain. So I use it to clean old cable housing (if I don't have any new around),...
