    I like this argument. Either build for discs or not. Discs work fine, rim brakes work fine. And it's not clear at this point where the disc wheels are going to be in 10 years, maybe they'll all be...

    I'm sure there is some nasty stuff left behind from cerrobend. There may be ways to get rid of it, info is probably out there.

    I suspect bending with heat is a skill that requires some practice. ...

    well, since durability is a very nebulous thing, I'll just address fatigue fracture. That is an area where I have a significant amount of experience -- both professionally and as a bike rider. The...

    I always figured there is a lifetime supply of 531 out there in boxes, owned by people that were "going to build a frame someday." How to tap into that supply before the de-hoarding consultants get...

    in general, I don't care about other road users and how they think about me. Mostly because I'm pretty sure those that bother to think about me at all are thinking stupid thoughts driven mostly by...

    I wouldn't go stainless for a second frame, unless it's never going to be built. For a road bike, lugged is just fine, and you can to double oversize with 1 1/8 steerer. My favorite tubing is...

    if you can't sell it at the paceline, I don't know where you are going to sell it. I would suggest that joining an email list to sell a bike is frowned upon by most list moderators. However, there...

    well, like I said in a previous post, you should look for connection problems inside the case. Otherwise, yes, you need another light because it's going to be hard to diagnose the one you have
