    It's a 1050 crank wearing 48T and 38T Sugino rings,...

    Me too! I have a nice '67 Beetle and a not-so-nice '74 Thing in pieces, a Rickenbacker 330 and a handful of tube amplifiers that I built, all languishing because I've been on my bike kick for the...

    FWIW, the sound produced by my freewheels and freehubs after flushing with solvent makes my skin crawl. The balls rattle, and there is a metallic scraping sound that I imagine to be the pawls...

    It's not a problem. My bike with a 38t ring on a 130BCD crank does the same thing. Just ride the thing. :thumb:

    I'll try not to be a wet blanket, but I achieved my goal of acquiring no new bikes in 2014. However, I did finally finish wearing out a set of 700x30C tires, and my goal for next year will be to put...

    My braking needs are pretty modest: just to attenuate speed on the flats, and hold my speed in check on descents. Pretty much any braking system involving aluminum rims and Kool-Stop pads will do...

    In the absence of ramps and pins, I find that the faster I'm spinning, the smoother and more successful a small-to-big front shift is. The chain gets swept up the side of the big ring and onto the...

    I agree on ETRTO/ISO, and perhaps one of my New Year's resolutions will be to switch completely to its use. :)

    The "27.5" nomenclature isn't so weird in context -- the MTB industry likes coming...

    Old threads are a wonderful source of useful information, and I often find the answers I need in forum searches. All I meant to say in my post above (from a year ago) was to consider the age of...

    Not "upwards of 20%", rather the study referenced found a 20% spread between the absolute best and worst tires evaluated. Unless you are on the heaviest, thickest, stiffest tires you can find,...

    I think the goal was to use the bike as-found. He only resorted to a newer front wheel to keep it rideable.
