    I also had a Milano,but it had the 8spd hub(with roller). A little draggy but not too bad. I bought a wheel from a friend that had one of the original 7spd/roller hubs and built my 1x1 around it....

    BB5's are more fiddly than BB7's because only one pad is adjustable. They work fine. If you want to upgrade to BB7's or other dual-adjustment calipers,check around your local shops first and see if...

    I think that's the same frame as the Tripper,which had a 3spd hub.

    BTW,where is the EBB coming from? I don't see anything on Raleigh's site about it,and Googling the BB shows it's a standard one.

    Here's where you need to take your measurements. Also note,wider tires are also taller.

    Pretty sure that rear wheel has a 135mm hub. What's the spacing on your frame? If it's close,you should be able to get it in,otherwise you'll need to cold-set(ie,very carefully bend) the frame.

    Wonder how well those gold plated rims stop in the rain? And how long before the cassette/rings/chain are trashed? Also note,gold's not light.

    Yeah,I like 26" for commuting. Easy to find wide tires in both knobbies and slicks,and no toe overlap issues with fenders.

    It should do it,with the right cutting wheel,but it will be way more effort and mess than proper cutters.

    Usually the smallest cog,but you'll def know when you install the derailleur. Whatever style it is,you'll connect the cable with the derailleur just hanging there,without moving it.

    Using the cutters on my needlenose once at my clinic convinced me to make room in the tool pouch for proper cutters. They're really the best tool for the job.

    Wow dude,really?



    I've got an older version of that with 6 bikes on it. Great for long-term storage,but a PITA to get to the inner bikes,so not something I'd use daily. I've got 2 of these and...

    Curious as to what you mean by 'slow'. That bike has reasonably tall gearing and shouldn't be heavy,plus it has decent tires. Were you expecting it was going to make you drop roadies?

    SRAM and Shimano have different pull ratios for their rear derailleurs,so the shifters must match. SRAM makes shifters for both,Shimano only makes shifters for their stuff. If your bike has Shimano...

    Pretty sure it's a front wheel. That looks like a fork end;a rear track end wouldn't have a longer lower lip.
