    What is the least expensive North-American-made bicycle frame, or complete bicycle with a North-American frame available today?
    I am not asking because I think NA made products are 'better', but...

    To get back to the actual topic, I purchased an inexpensive basic (~$15) folding chair that had a tag saying 'max weight 250 lbs'. With my clothes I was probably 253 lbs. That chair survived two...

    I can do that, too, but not with any reasonable typo:

    Ride the bike so much that parts start wearing out and need replacing. Then replace with slightly nicer but obviously different (colour, shape, style) replacement parts. This will give the bike an...

    I assume a typo in your title confused the autcensor, but I can't think of any even remotely rude or controversial words that are close to 'hair'.

    His known internationally as the highest volume purchaser of Lee Press-On products.

    in my opinion, if the only thing broken is the shifter, and a direct replacement is available, then just replace the shifter. But your broken chain complicates things a bit. If the chain is...

    Carries a tiny bicycle in a utility belt. It is too small for him to ride so he also carries a very tiny cyclist.

    You also should consider, if you haven't already, getting your BB shell faced, as slight misalignment can drastically shorten bearing life.

    Moved from Foo to Alt Bike Culture, then to Duluth.
  12. You measure the chainline at the crank after the...

    You measure the chainline at the crank after the arms are properly torqued. Measuring before they are torqued is like deciding on the fit of a shirt without buttoning it up. If you remove the...

    Correct.

    The old 'why would I pay $500 for a bike when I don't even enjoy riding my $79 bike' syndrome.
  14. This is the right answer. The chainline can be...

    This is the right answer. The chainline can be measured at the freewheel as well as at the crank.

    You need two measurements to do the chainline calculations: The OLD (distance from the inside...

    If the marks lined up before, and the only thing that happened was you unhooked the cable, removed and reinstalled the wheel, then re-hooked the cable, spending any money on this problem is a waste. ...

    I don't deny that. But as hard on stuff as I am, my Ti frame keeps on tickin'

    Someone gave me a Nashbar Reynolds 853 mtb frame a couple years ago. My friend thought my Ti frame was super comfy...

    If you have a black front rim, get a black rear rim... if you have a silver front rim, get a silver rear rim. And get a rear rim that is generally similar in profile to your front rim. And use a...

    My Ti MTB, although a Russian built frame of unknown alloy, is the only MTB to ever last me more than two years without breaking - going on 11 or 12 years old now. And most of the miles over the...

    You are moving the goal posts. Your initial post was generally focused on titanium parts that were no longer available, and most of the explanations mentioned the rise in popularity of carbon. Now...

    Sadly, I recognize the bird-poop welds as being from Raleigh Canada. The 'Laser Robotic Technology' they employed up until the late 90s resulted in extremely cheap production costs and enabled them...

    Having a less effective rear brake than front brake does not make endos more likely. I have heard this myth many times, generally given as advice that to avoid an over the bars crash (OTB) you must...

    That bike is not an American classic - 'classic' generally refers to something desirable to collctors, and AFAIK collectors have not run out of less crappy things yet, and, as much as I hate to admit...

    I have seen this before, but I seriously doubt they would give any benefit for riding on ice, which is when studded tires are necessary. Regular knobbies work fine in snow.
