    The framebuilder who's doing the job said he'd charge a nominal fee to take care of it, so I believe I'll just leave things in his capable hands. Thanks, all!

  3. Remove and Reuse Headset Races/Bearings?

    Apologies for posting what I fear may be a stupid question, but I haven't been able to find an answer on the boards already.

    I'm having my frame stripped and painted, so everything's obviously...

    Right, we're talking about just spinning with my fingers, no cranks attached. The left side spins without trouble, as you might expect; it's just the drive-side bearing that's feeling chunky. I put...

    SRAM Rival BB -- Time to Replace?

    Greetings, all. I recently removed my cranks (2013 SRAM Rival with GXP BB), I noticed that drive side bearing doesn't seem like it wants to move freely; instead, it clicks in uniform increments, like...

    It won't budge, even when I extended the leverage on my allen wrench with a pair of pliers. I'm supposed to go counter-clockwise (i.e. lefty-loosey), right?
  7. 2012 Rival Cranks - Can't Loosen 8mm Hex Bolt

    Hi all, as the thread title says, I've got a 2012 SRAM Rival crankset, which I'm trying to remove to get my bike painted. The setup is with a 10mm outside bolt, with an 8mm inside; I understand the...

    That's a pretty solid testament right there (beautiful bike, btw). Beating-taking is definitely high on the priorities list, especially given my size and where I ride (in/around NYC).

  9. Thoughts on Mavic CXP22 + 105 wheels for heavier rider?

    Hi all,

    My factory wheelset is reaching the end of its useful life, and I'm looking to replace/upgrade. I'm a big guy (about 235-240 lbs), and I ride a heavy-ish Surly Cross Check. A friend of...

    Thanks! The reason I ask is that I appear to be putting too much weight on my saddle, causing the rails to bend. (While no delicate flower, I'm well under the weight limit for the saddle; the...
  12. Surly cross check: shifting COG forward?

    Hi all. I have a 58 cm Surly Cross Check, which seems to fit pretty well, generally. However, I'm hoping to shift my weight forward a bit more, and I'm thinking of moving my stem down to do it. The...

    Avid Rim Wrangler 2s on Canti Brakes?

    I can't take the squealing from my kool stop "Cross Pads" any more. No matter what I do, they won't shut up. I need an alternative (threaded post-style) with good stopping power.

    The bike came...

    Brakes are the stock Tektro Oryxes (Orices?) that came with my bike. I'll look into the fork crown stop, though if possible I'd like to avoid it, for purely aesthetic reasons (this is a heavy...

  18. SHRIEEEEEEK! Kool Stop Canti Pads are Killing Me

    I've just recently put my second set of Kool Stop canti pads on my front wheel, and I'm suffering from some really horrible shrieking during heavy braking. My first set were Supra2s in all-black,...

    That's a really good call, thanks. Do you happen to know if a 9 speed hub would be compatible with 10 spd cassette? Frankly, I'd rather just have stuck with my 9 spd drivetrain, but it's getting...

    Replacing/Upgrading from Tiagra 9 Spd

    Thinking of going SRAM Rival. Anyone have any thoughts on the 11 vs 10 speed systems? Obviously the 10 speed is cheaper, so that's a plus right there. Is the added cost of the 11 balanced out by...

    I'm trying for the full hundred, but riding with my dad, so he might not be feeling it. I'm not sure if registration's closed now, but you might still be able to sign up. I did 55 miles of it last...

    Yeah, I'm really sorry, but I yell at people like you when I do happen to be in the park. It's WAY too crowded now, and there are too many unpredictable novice cyclists, as well as tourists playing...

    I knew you have to pay like $25 for a year's membership. Not so sure about the site itself.

    The weekend after labor day I'm doing the NYC century. Maybe 9/14 or 15?

    Nope, other end of the A: Inwood.

    9W comes and goes, but generally I like it because of the wide shoulders. I'm not sure how it gets north of Alpine NJ (basically state-line), but I understand...
