    Dawes SST AL for $329.95

    This about $100 off the normal price and a very good deal on this bike IMO.

    Like I said above, it simply does not matter. There's a lot of opinions out there, none of it supported by any real evidence as to what is better. Whatever floats your boat.

    The most important factor in wheel building is to get sufficient tension in the spokes, such that they always remain tensioned regardless of the loading.

    Don't worry about it. Wheels can be laced either way, symmetric or anti-symmetric, and it really doesn't matter. But if you're starting from scratch, do it symmetric, since it just looks better.

    You've got lots of good choices at that price point, but I'd recommend this:

    FSA Orbit X headset | Retrogression

    Excellent value in a very good sealed headset. I've got one installed on my 2011...

    Dang you leegf ! That is totally my size. Seatstay dent looks ok to me, since it is not a highly stressed area and not bad enough to affect alignment. Must resist !

    Any single freewheel should work. Simply remove the 5-speed freewheel and screw on the SS freewheel. The threading is the same. You may need to move some axle spacers and re-dish the wheel to get a...

    He said dead lift, not squat, big difference. Anyways, there are large heavy track sprinters who can do a lot better, and they don't break stuff. I've broken stuff too, and it's always been due to...

    Neither. They are both overpriced and very low quality. I own a Vilano frameset, and it is fairly light, but the quality is terrible.

    It's a mini-skirt and the frame is a step-through girl's bike, so I'd say no problem. The helmet over the eyes, OTOH...

    I'll bet the little girl on the blue bike with the helmet tilted down over her eyes smokes him.

    You are indeed wrong. You have 19 skid patches, not 49, but then again what makes you think the OP even cares about skid patches ?

    P-clamps are fine for fenders but not for main rack supports IMO. Since your frame dropouts are aluminum, it will be very easy to drill and tap them for rack mounting bolts. That's what I would do.

    Yeah, suspension on the street, even on very rough roads is kinda dumb. An old rigid mtb with fat tires with a road tread run at low pressures goes a long way to solving this problem.

    You need to read up on gearing. 47 x 15 is a much much much higher gearing than 48 x 17.

    Yeah, I'd sure be a tough hombre if I ate pedals for breakfast. But, yeah, Egg Beaters pretty much taste and cook like real eggs. They are actually made with egg whites and some sort of egg yoke...

    I wonder why no one so far has mentioned townie/pullback type bars. For casual riding while sitting in an upright position they can't be beat.

    Cock is not an obscenity any more than penis, so it is permitted. OTOH, for some reason *** (handheld firearm) is verboten.

    The world of selective censorship is crazy.

    I'll definitely second that. Also, they mount easily and are extremely round.
