    You could use a frame mounted bag also. You would probably lose the use of your bottle cages, so would need a hydration pack or handlebar mounted bottle cages. The rest of your questions, I can't...

    We lucked out here with only 8 or so inches with higher drifts. Usually we are in the bullseye here, so I am not going to complain for one second having shoveled multiple 2ft storms. As for the...

    That sucks, but any time you can't pick a bike up immediately or exactly when the seller wants, there's a good chance it'll get sold on you. Something else will pop up, they always do.

    I have a Japanese SR crank labeled Motobecane and it takes the standard Park JIS puller. I'm not sure of the thread measurements, but it's the same as all of the Japanese cranks I have. Hope that...

    My experience with the more modern Shimano index capable derailleurs is that they have a lighter feel. The "Light Action" derailleurs that Miami Jim recommends are nice shifting derailleurs. If you...

    Now there is a man who understands professional sports chewybrian. As a Pats fan, I am amused at all of the sour grapes by the Ravens and Colts.

    I think Grand Bois pretty much nailed it on this. As for the bike being too large, I don't think we have enough info from the OP to determine that. I ride bikes with a fist full of seat post exposed,...

    Thanks for putting these pictures up. I love to check out how they set up their bikes, gravel grinders take note.

    I can only imagine the horror of some of the velominati upon seeing the saddle to...

    I have both a roof rack and trunk rack and like the roof rack better. First, the bikes stay separated and don't rub on one another, ruining the paint like on the trunk rack. The bikes also don't rub...

    What kind of bar setup do you have? If drops, there are Sunrace DT clamp on shifters that work well with Shimano derailleurs and are friction front which will work with your current front...

    If you are concerned about bone loss from only cycling, I suggest you incorporate some mountain biking into your riding. The body can take quite a bit of pounding when hitting rocks, roots, and bumps...

    I don't believe anyone suggested getting a nice used road bike. A sport touring bike with dropout and fork end eyelets would allow for rack/fenders. A really nice bike can be had for ~$300 in my area.

    Cycling doesn't always mean that one is on a racing bike with 5+ inches of bar to saddle drop. There are upright position bikes, recumbents, Nitto Technomic stems, etc. If my neck was preventing me...

    It is tough to get any riding in when it's this cold. I rode for the first time in a while 2 weeks ago and could feel the difference in my legs. Hats off to anyone dedicated enough to get ready for...

    ^^Wow! that's a lot of love into that dork disk, shiny. Ride with pride:thumb:.

    That sounds cool. I really hadn't been following the L'Eroica posts because I also know I won't be doing it. Your post made me check into it, and I am surprised that it's being held so early in...

    That's funny you say that. For a while I was really enjoying working on my bikes more than riding. That has shifted to wanting to ride more and wrench less. All of the projects don't give me the joy...

    I've used automotive headliner glue to adhere loose vinyl. It comes in a spray can and I've found a coating on the inside of the vinyl and the saddle create a more permanent bond.

    I'm in the chrome or alloy DD camp. Some bikes, like vintage Schwinns look good with them.

    I've really got to do the ride one of these days. It's in my backyard and I had never even heard of it until a few years ago. I think it would be kind of cool to be out there with all those other...

    I get what you are saying, you don't like that someone is trying to profit from your work. The thing is, if you priced the bike like this person it could still be in your garage. There is something...

    Now that you've got the offending crank arm off the bike it may be easier to hammer it out. I would try to give it a good soak for a few days in penetrating oil first. I feel your pain, as I had a...

    As Bikemig said, it's a reasonable choice if you don't want to keep it period correct. You may need a derailleur claw if your frame doesn't have a derailleur hanger on the dropout.
