I already wrote that my LBS doesn't measure. I can't do it because it's not easy to measure a hub, especially a disc-compatible hub where the flanges are not symmetrical on the centerline. You can't...

Formula DC91 hub dimensions?

Does anyone have dimensions for this hub? I want to build up a wheel but can't calculate the spoke length without proper dimensions. The biggest LBS in this area can't measure and can't cut spokes to...

If the registrations above are already sold, just keep an eye out on newyork.craigslist.org as the date nears. There's almost always someone local who'll need to sell for whatever reason. Use proper...

Cutting the line for the ferry is as rude as joining the tour after the start line just because you don't want to be part of the mass start.

A possible solution would be to mount them on the handlebar ends, the widest part of the bike. When you signal left, the right signal comes on solid as a reference, with the left blinking. Vice versa...

Good point. It should be obvious that that's a bad idea in today's world of security theater. After all, these are the same people who tell us we can't have backpacks, handlebar bags, trunk racks,...

You don't have to do any fundraising. That's only for people who want to be in the charity start wave or want to help a charity. Everybody else just pays the registration fee, or at this late date,...

Since the course is closed to the general public with barricades and other barriers, this law would seem to apply. Same thing if you tried to squeeze onto a blocked-off parade route. IANAL.

Go ahead and try to raise the money. Keep an eye on Craigslist a few days before the ride. There's almost always somebody who can't ride and has to unload theirs. Also ask on the New York Cycle Club...

It's true that you'll be at nearly the front of the first wave, just behind the VIP riders, but that wave also includes 1/3 of the 32,000 riders. With marshals keeping the front of the ride in check,...

It did not sell out in one day. It took over a week. I don't think it sold out in one day last year, either. The last time it sold out that quickly was sometime around 2011.

Single speed splined freewheel?

Is there any such thing as a single speed threaded freewheel (not a freehub) that will accept a standard Shimano-type 9-spline cog?

There was no doubt they would sell out. But it's simply not selling out in a day or two the way it used to.
