    Yep, I was thinking about this. A piece of leather or sheet rubber inserted between the cables and frame would probably do a decent job of protecting the bike. The top tube hook is really just to...

    So would the clamping arm on the front wheel work OK if you tried clamping to a spot on the wheel that was 6-8" further forward?

    The top tube clamping carriers do avoid the fenders, but most of our bikes have top tube routed cables, making that a bit iffy. Clamping the wheels seems to make the most sense overall... which I why...

    Trailer hitch bike carriers and fenders...

    I'm looking into mounting a trailer hitch to my car (2007 Honda Fit) for the purpose of using a hitch mounted bike carrier. I'm looking at the type that supports the bikes by the wheels, as this...

    I'm pretty certain the assembly is correct, especially as I simply loosened the bolt enough to pull the old pad out and slide the post of the new one in.

    After a ~2 hour ride yesterday the pads...
  8. Suntour XC Canti brakes - can't get new pads tight enough!

    I have a new old bike, with circa 1990 Suntour XC canti brakes. They're conventional cantis on the front, 'self energizing' on the back, but the pad mounting mechanism is the same front and back....

    Thanks, so it seems like I'm looking for angular contact sealed bearings with ID 15mm x OD 28mm x Width 7mm Dimensions (got those from the BocaBearings site, but will try to confirm).

    These are...
  10. Super grindy cartridge bearings in old Specialized (Sansin?) tandem rear hub

    I recently acquired an old but good quality tandem (Burley Bossa Nova). I'm estimating that it's from about 1990 (due to having Suntour XC Pro, with indexed barcons, but a 6 speed freewheel... seems...

    Thanks for that info Nigel... Good to know there's a low cost option available anyway.

    New update from bike shop - while getting ready to replace the spoke they noticed some of the eyelets on the rim pulling through... however, they have a NOS Wolber Super Champion 27" 40 hole rim in...

    I measured the dropouts and my calipers read 142mm between them... which from some googling doesn't seem to be a standard width. Although 2mm is pretty small, so possibly it's intended to be 140. As...
  14. Rear wheel for 1990 tandem... anyone used Wheel Master hubs?

    Our just-purchased 1990-ish Burley Bossa Nova has a 6 speed Suntour XC Pro drivetrain, with a non-Suntour (Specialized?) solid axle rear hub and a 6 speed freewheel.

    When we bought the bike I...

    New tandemists! (tandemizers? tandemistas?)

    Hi - long time member of bikeforums but totally new to tandem riding.

    My wife and I picked up a Burley Bossa Nova from Craigslist as a bit of an impulse buy over the weekend. From the drivetrain...

    thanks for the feedback. The soft roll-ring looks problematic for bike use because it looks like it could be easily knocked out of place, although the idea of using a (rigid) ghost ring is appealing.
  17. State of the art (heh) in chain tensioners for single speed conversions?

    About 7 years ago, I converted my old steel Stumpjumper to a singlespeed. At the time, all the chain tensioners available used a single jockey wheel to tension the chain. I tried a generic one, which...

    For some reason this shellac seems really resistant to alcohol. I've tried cleaning some drips with 95% ethanol and it really does not dissolve. I don't think wiping it off would be feasible.

    You can definitely do it. I built my first wheel (an 8 speed rear) with just Sheldon's instructions, a cheap Minoura truing stand, a Park Tool wrench, and some patience. I attached little tape flags...
