I have built four sets of wheel using the BHS hubs, mostly the SL211 and UL66 front. They are very well made for the price. I agree about the DS flange spacing being narrower than I like, but it's...

At this point go for time, not distance. Don't worry about how fast you are. If you can keep pedalling at a reasonable rpm that's good, because that's what serious cyclists do- no coasting unless...

Friel is kind of advanced for the OP's purposes. It's for racers. I'd suggest Tom Chapple's Base Building book.

Cleave- good luck today.

1984 is 29 years ago, so 30 years is not that far off the mark for LOOKs.

I got LOOKs in '86. SO much better than clips and straps. Safer and more comfortable.

The advantage of cycling shoes,...

I tested the 11-32 XG1090 cassette and Wifli derailleur I got for Everest this morning. It's noisy and the chain derails if I back pedal in the big ring and a large cog. Adjusting the tension to...

The problem with Campy is you have to...

I agree.

I do not think that analysis (or anything else) is a foolproof way to prevent crashes and did not say that in this thread. If you think I did, you have misread my posts.
