    [QUOTE=gt eunuch;17349322]Can I play? I think this is a mid 90's bike, but has 1" threaded headset and a lugged fork crown....

    Of course, I'm going to like this. Sweet looking ride!

    So just to provide closure here, I raised the FD slightly and that helped some because the cage tapers narrower towards the top. I also put a 9 speed chain on and that solved the issue entirely. I...

    gsa103, those look like the derailleurs I found in the used parts bin that didn't work. I was bummed b/c they were only $5! The problem, I think, is that they're designed for triples. I couldn't...
  4. Anyone ever spread a front derailleur cage? 10 spd cage too narrow.

    Ok, so here's the set-up: I've built up a new cyclocross bike by moving over a bunch of components from my old one that got wrecked. I run a 2x8 drivetrain. I run 8-speed because I have a flat bar...

    I just mounted tubies on a second set of wheels but I don't think they'll be hot swap-able because the rims are different widths. The first set are Major Toms which are 23mm wide rims (great for...

    I second bikemig's suggestion. If you will mainly be riding on hard surfaces (this includes gravel roads) an older road or touring bike could be just the ticket. Cross bikes, especially those...

    and that was my point.

    However I notice the OP is "planning" to try cyclocross next year. So in reality he's getting a commuter for now. If he actually tries 'cross and gets into it, he will...

    Hey feitsbob, no need to be snotty, I got these Dugasts from a guy for less than half price, which is cheaper than cheap tubulars. They were unmounted like new, so I guess I scored. So why wouldn't...

    You'll be just fine. For actual cyclocross 36-28 is plenty low for your lowest gear. Most racers run a higher lowest gear than that. I'm running 46/36 with a 13-26 cassette. Cylcocross is not...

    Sure that's one approach SlowJoe, but you only go through the whole conversion process once, setting it up for commuting after 'cross season and converting it back before. I assume you use one of...

    I think you're right about that. And yeah this gunk is very sticky and won't likely come off even when it dries. It's been 24hrs and it has firmed up, and it's not about to come off, so I think the...
  12. How do I remove mastic from a Dugast tubular sidewall?

    So I just m˘unted a pair of Dugast Rhinos and got some Vittoria Mastik as well as Belgian tape adhesive on the sidewall in squeezing the last bit of the tire onto the rim. How do I get this off? I...

    +1. This is the bell. Way too expensive (I see the price went up after I got mine in the initial batch), but it is a great bell. Very discreet and streamlined, people don't notice it (but they do...

    If you get seriously into 'cross you're going to end up with another bike anyways. Setting up your bike to race will make it less and less suitable for anything else - well maybe some trail riding. ...

    That's the beauty of tubies, you can run them stupid low. They don't pinch flat. I could only run clinchers down to maybe 35, and even then a pinch flatted once in a race. I've been working the...

    Yes cantis really are so lame. Take a relatively slender road-type fork, put a cantilever brake on it, and especially with the typically long cable run they usually have between the hanger and the...

    Well the upcoming turn was a right hander, so staying left would put me on the outside to enter it which is generally the preferred position, but I wasn't so much thinking of that at the moment, it...
