    49, not including tootling about town on errands/leisure.

    Gee, thanks Todzilla, I thought that I had over a decade to go before I hit 50; now you've got me thinking that I've less than a year.

    Are you sure they're plastic? I'd be surprised if they aren't powder coated aluminum, considering that they offer them with either machined or non-machined sidewalls. As to their attraction, I don't...

    PennyTheDog I was wicked lucky. Dude was driving a car, not a truck, and he slammed on his brakes right before he t-boned me, so his bumper hit the bike below the frame and fork. Wheels were toast,...

    Nailed it. The cassette came zip tied together with the spacer between the 11t and the lockring, so I assumed that was the order that it needed to be installed in. Now that I've gone back and looked...
  8. Chain slipping in smallest cog, new chain and cassette

    I just changed my cassette (Shimano 105 5700, 10 speed 11-28) and chain (Wipperman Connex 10sb), and the chain slips terribly in the 11t cog. I've tried adjusting the b-limit on the derailleur, to no...

    I guess something similar came up a couple of days ago. And yeah, it does look a lot like the bottle generator tabs on those old Peugeots in the catalog pics.

    For some reason I thought that V-brakes wouldn't fit on canti posts, like the distance to the rim was markedly different. I've got an extra V-brake and lever floating around, so I'll try that.

    Drum brake questions

    I've got an old MTB Xtracycle cargo bike conversion with cantis in the front and a disc brake on the Xtracycle extension. The disc works great and is sufficient to stop the bike when loaded, which is...

    I don't know about "most hideous", but it is pretty ugly. Here's a less hideous version of the same concept, albeit more expensive.
