Sports writer. Too much time in front of a screen, not enough in the saddle.

I drive the 3/8" sheet metal screws into the outer knobs at an angle away from the tube. Sorry for the crayon attachment, but using MS paint is like using an etch-a-sketch.

Wow, for a new repair person, you've got a much nicer setup than most home mechanics and probably quite a few experienced hands. As far as the PRS-15, it looks like a top-notch stand. I have a PRS-1...

Longer axle to use old wheel on new bike?

A friend gave me a new aluminum frame (Trek 7700) and I've been having a nice time hanging some old parts (I have a lot) on the thing. My problem: The frame is designed for newer 700c wheels (I have...
