Similarly, my best purchase was a Hozan Fourth Hand tool. Made adjusting my cantis and centerpulls much easier and cut down on my drinking and cussing. I just picked up a used TS-2, so we'll see how...

There is a big difference between data and graphs. I like BQ, own several 650B bikes, and I like Jan's enthusiasm. But when I read BQ, I see tables and graphs, not data.

What pressures are you using front/rear? I only ask because I find people moving over from the racing tire world tend to over-inflate 650B tires, understandably. I like 50/55 psi for the standard...

I've always thought the Simplex SX610 was the the econo version of the SLJ 6600 (T/SP versions). However, the SX610 has a max wrap and max cog size of 28 teeth, while the SLJ 6600 has a max wrap of...
