For QR/rim brakes get a MTB hub that has at least 2.5mm worth or removable spacers on the NDS and move 2.5mm to the DS. Or...

Run a straight edge across the top of the steerer tube through the clamp gap, if it touches the steerer tube at 2 points and clears the clamp bolt it is low enough. Too low can be remedied with a...

The two holes in the non drive side chainstay are for a kickstand, not a rack. The E-hub torque arm is attached to one of the rack mount holes and it's blocking access to the other hole. It's hard to...

Do your MTB shorts have a separate lining? The lining is worn against the skin.


Triathlon shorts have less padding than typical road bike shorts.

just do a search for 2mm brake cable, there's plenty of NOS cables in existence. Alternatively you can try a motorcycle shop.

What hand positions did your stoker use on the old bars? IMHO getting flat tops for the stoker is just a waste of hand position because the stoker handlebars don't contribute much to the overall drag.

Search for part Y5X998010. The bolt isn't available by itself but is part of the B-axle assembly. This assembly is used on many of the 2nd gen 10-speed RDs.

28/38/48 was a common combination when paired with 7-speed freewheels with a small cog of 14 teeth*. With a move towards cassettes with 11 tooth cogs, 22/32/44 made more sense.

The CX50 like most CX specific cantis use road pads. They also use a long spacer and longer bolt so you need to keep the original bolt.

IIRC the original stem on my Trek 7.1FX was 90mm 10 degree 1-1/8 steerer 25.4 handlebar. If you're interested send me a PM and I'll try to dig through my parts box for it.
