    Another plug for getting the seat position correct first, then adjusting/replacing bars and stem for the desired reach and drop.

    I'm firmly in the camp that moves the front tire to the rear wheel, and install the new tire on the front.

    I have Pocket Earth on my iPad 3, and the downloaded maps are excellent. But I've been very disappointed in its ability to maintain a GPS connection for tracking my route when I've used it hiking. Is...

    Scaramoosh,

    i think you're confusing indexed shifting with electronic shifting (which is also indexed). With indexed shifting, the lever movement is still mechanically coupled to the derailleur,...

    There are excellent - light weight, fast rolling, smooth riding - 28's and 32's out there. I am quite a fan of those offered by Compass (and also sold by others), but the much less expensive and...

    There should be plenty of Shimano crank arms out there from the 90's. I had several unmatched left arms until a few months ago when. I cleared them out by donating to Recycled Cycles here in Seattle....

    That and what followed certainly made me L'laugh. But probably not in L'shape do anything of this length too soon.

    I was an avid Klein guy for a decade and have the t-shirts to prove it, but mine was the long wheelbase Performance ('92) version, so no help with Quantums, although I'd think they would have the...

    I polished a Shimano 600 tricolor front and an XT 732 rear hub with Dremel buffer wheel and rouge before building them, and haven't noticed them losing much shine in the 1.5 years since then.
