    This is a dangerous thread, makes me want to find another old MTB to set up for dirt instead of a commuter. Nice bikes in this thread.

    I've got a Polar H7 chest strap, it works with my treadmill (using the older 5mhz signal?) and also works with my Polar M400 watch. The H7 strap also works with my android phone and the Runkeeper...

    I think he's putting a slick tire on his MTB rim so all should be well.

    As to keeping the MTB ridable, I'd suggest a similar slick on the front just to keep handling friendly. And if you do...

    Brooks B17 Imperial reviews ?

    Just curious how people are doing with their B17 Imperials, either those of us who were fortunate enough to get one of the prototype ones, or those who got a regular production one. Are you still...

    What are you thinking? I'm thinking I need to make this a primary event and plan my summer around it. Adding it to the 2015 calender now (while haunting this thread vicariously).

    In some of your...

    I sold the one I had, needed gas money to get to a new job, seemed like a nice bike and I"d probably still have it even though it was one size too big for me.

    My vote would be a lube and tune and...

    Many of us here have buckets or bins of take-off parts, much of which is just in the way or waiting for some unknown project to come along in need of those random parts. If you were local I'd let...

    Oh yeah, no complaints, worst case is I get two free skewers. I'll probably remove the offending rim this weekend and toss the cracking rim, or maybe make a table out of it or something.

    hmmm, an...

    Quickly becoming a bike-art project. Or maybe a photo prop.

    His 5 year warranty ran out last month and was denied, so dead end there.

    Is a evenly spaced 24 hole rim an option here? https://www.dtswiss.com/Components/Rims-Road/RR-585
    Of course now I'd be...
  13. Bontrager paired spoke rim replacement options

    Background: a guy at work had a set of wheels that have the rear spoke holes starting to crack at the nipples. He thought they were still under warranty but was told no by both the LBS and by...

  15. Small milestones, stepping stones, and weighpoints

    12+ years ago I picked up my Colnago from a small local shop. Then I got married. And for awhile before then and up until a year or two ago my weight began to creep up and peaked around 250ish....

    When did Specialized first offer the Rockhopper? Bikepedia shows them only going back to '92. I guess I'll have to try and check component date codes on the one I got recently. I'm going to take a...
