    I wouldn't worry about that either. If it does break mid-ride you'll be in a bit of a high gear stuck in the small cog all the way home but it's not the end of the world.

    I like this MRX better,...

    Yeah, on those you just pull the cable out and push it back in. They're a little sloppier shifting than the white body MRX but should shift better than a Falcon.

    Yeah, that's a pump peg. Made for a full size frame pump, like olde Silca frame pumps. Zefal hpx comes in 4 sizes to fit various frames, spring loaded to fit a range. Couple of other modern...

    I'd only ride that for lockup commuting at a school if they have those bike boxes there. Bike rack rash will eat up that beautiful bike and theft is a very grave concern at most schools.

    Falcons are like the mid-'90s gripshifts when it comes to cable replacement. It's not for the faint of heart, my first one took me about 3 hours, but now takes about 15 minutes.

    I wouldn't mind having a go-fast recumbent. I'd have to get a 1st floor apartment or house with a garage first, though. :)

    Not much really. Mainly when I get a bike with bars I hate. Like my Scapin came with some godawful ergo bend bars with olde style brake levers. I wanted to put my Cinelli 66 bars on there and some...

    Toughest road climb around here gets close to 20%. It's not too bad 39x27, just gotta stand up and stomp.

    It's a little harder on the fixed gear 43x16.

    A little easier with the Lemond and its...

    I usually just swap stem along with bars in such situations. Swapping from olde style brake levers to brifters is usually good for around a 3cm shorter stem swap.

    The 890's stays are 470mm. Might be able to get 40mm tires on the 890 itself. I've done several 700c on 26" frame conversions. Makes for a high bottom bracket and mud clearance is poor with the...

    If you put the posts in the right place you can handle both 700c and 27" rim sizes by moving brake pads, it's only a 4mm move.

    Even carbon rails will flex just fine. If you are indeed fabricating a rail clamp, the main issue would be sharp edges. Machine/file/sand those edges.
