    Is there any difference in rolling resistance between All Conditions and Armadillo All Conditions? Or is the only difference the weight?



    Is that because Armadillos are meant to be inflated to...

    I've been looking for rollers myself but they're all so expensive. For $30 you should definitely get them, because most of them I've seen are 5 to 10 times that price.

    You'd also have to change the brake controls and shifters, no?

    Actually, telling me it is a POS is exactly the kind of info I was looking for. No, posting links to the catalog did not tell me what I wanted to know, as I explained.

    I'm sorry if my second post in this thread came off as being whiny. That certainly was not my intent. I was a bit presumptuous in saying that he didn't read my initial post, and for that I...

    Did you even read my post? I'm not asking what model it is. I already looked through the catalogs and figured out the model. It's a P6 from 1983 or 84. I want to know how good that model is/was...

    How good is this early 80s Peugeot?

    A few years ago my father randomly bought me an old Peugeot road bike at a garage sale thinking that I would like it someday. I am now at the point where I am considering getting some new tires for...

    Are you unscrewing the little top part of the Presta valve? If you don't do that then no air will be able to go into the tire. Using an adapter, the full process is: unscrew the valve, screw on the...

    If it's a Presta valve (French, as you called it), then you need to make sure the fitting on your pump can do Prestas. Most pumps can only do one or the other... Presta valves or Schrader valves. ...

    How about a flat bar road bike like the Specialized Sirrus, and just switch the rims to tougher cyclocross rims to stand up better to the offroad parts.

    Yes, that's what I figured out... tightening the ring while the nozzle is on the valve to grip it better, rather than trying to put the already tightened nozzle onto the valve.

    Aha, I knew the Sirrus was lighter! :D

    From what it sounds like, you have reconfirmed your decision to go with the Sirrus. I didn't want to impart my own opinion before you made your mind up, but...

    Yeah, you can't flip the rubber washer inside because the way it's designed doesn't allow for the plastic ring to be screwed over it when it's on the other way. I tried that also originally.

    That is what I did at first because I didn't think you had to do anything to switch... just go from one style valve to the other without doing anything. But that doesn't work. When I lock the...
  17. Question - switching between valve styles on my air pump

    I got a new air pump (a Specialized Air Tool floor pump, if the model matters) on Ebay. One of the main reasons I got it was because the nozzle is supposed to be able to fit on both Schrader and...
