    Hmm. I don't know anyone else who's doing it old school like that, but to each his own. The screw-type master links seem to do ok for the pro keirin riders in Japan, and though I don't yet have any...

    Hmm. Ok, thanks guys, guess I'll pass. Only thinking of changing cuz I've grown tired of the NJS screw and nut system. It's fiddley and after I while that link has a tendency to stick a little.

    The Rippetoe line is to look at the floor about 6-7 feet ahead of you, but definitely not up. I'd like to hear Quinn's thoughts on this.

    Those narrow things suck. "Cooling down" on them is more stressful than racing!

    It's not the tubing that's NJS or not, it's the builder. I've seen NJS frames built with Columbus. And aero shapes, too.
