Thanks for the responses everyone, it's what I was hoping to hear. I'll lace it up 2x with some silver double butted spokes. I think that will look good with the 3x 32H rear, the spoke tangent...

Advice on building a 24 spoke front wheel - campy hub

Hey folks, I'm looking to build up a new wheel set for my lugged steel classic that's rocking Campy 9-speed. So I'm looking to keep it classy with shiny alloy bits, but want to take advantage of...

I'm also interested in the Kidztandem, but hoping for actual accounts from folks who have ridden one. Nobody?

So just to provide closure here, I raised the FD slightly and that helped some because the cage tapers narrower towards the top. I also put a 9 speed chain on and that solved the issue entirely. I...

gsa103, those look like the derailleurs I found in the used parts bin that didn't work. I was bummed b/c they were only $5! The problem, I think, is that they're designed for triples. I couldn't...

Anyone ever spread a front derailleur cage? 10 spd cage too narrow.

Ok, so here's the set-up: I've built up a new cyclocross bike by moving over a bunch of components from my old one that got wrecked. I run a 2x8 drivetrain. I run 8-speed because I have a flat bar...

I just mounted tubies on a second set of wheels but I don't think they'll be hot swap-able because the rims are different widths. The first set are Major Toms which are 23mm wide rims (great for...

Hey feitsbob, no need to be snotty, I got these Dugasts from a guy for less than half price, which is cheaper than cheap tubulars. They were unmounted like new, so I guess I scored. So why wouldn't...

You'll be just fine. For actual cyclocross 36-28 is plenty low for your lowest gear. Most racers run a higher lowest gear than that. I'm running 46/36 with a 13-26 cassette. Cylcocross is not...

That's the beauty of tubies, you can run them stupid low. They don't pinch flat. I could only run clinchers down to maybe 35, and even then a pinch flatted once in a race. I've been working the...
