Thanks for the reply, wasn't referring to the mounting method. I need threaded for my cantis. However, several models seem to be threaded:

Missed the front half of the saddle on a remount today on my ride. Turns out that rotating ritchey speedmax tires do a good job grating thighs.

My (slightly tearful) reaction to the Armstrong news

Left crank is shot - replace or new set?

Got a kaput SRAM Force left crank. Should I buy a new arm for $120 or get a brand spankin' new Rival crankset for the same price?

It's getting to be that time.

Figured it is about that time...shaved my legs, dusted off the cross bike, and rode this weekend. Can't wait for the fall.
