    Whew! How about the fact that I'm looking for a 49T, when I have perfectly good 48T and 50T rings on the shelf? :lol:

    WTT: my low-miles Surly 49T/130BCD Stainless Steel chainring for the same specs in silver aluminum, straight across. Preferably Shimano, but might be interested in other brands as long as they're...

    All of this stuff (except the FW itself) would work with 7-speed shifters and chain -- RD might have a little trouble reaching all the way across an 8-speed cluster, but might not. Haven't tried...

    It's mostly "confusing" for people who thought that dietary cholesterol had a major impact on blood cholesterol. Seems like we've known that genetics, saturated fat, and sugar intake have far more...

    Probably my "rando" bike. I have other bikes with 28-622 tires that would look more appropriate in the spring classics, but 37-590 tires are way more comfortable. :)

    Perm Across America -- I like it! :thumb:

    I Googled RR3's suggestion of the Pac Tour Elite ride, and that looks like the closest thing to what the OP envisions that's all set up and functioning:...

    +1. Just because the tire is strong enough to hold when pumped up to fantastically high pressures, doesn't mean that you necessarily should. ;)

    Sorry if my reply came off snarky, but if you think about your crank basically being the smaller two rings of a triple, lots of options open up. :thumb:

    Same size, isn't it? 57cm center-to-center, but 58cm/23" from center to top like Bianchi measures it?

    I don't think Bianchi made any bikes that they would call a 57cm at that time but I could be...

    A regular triple road FD will do the job fine, like in the last thread you started: http://www.bikeforums.net/bicycle-mechanics/995076-shimano-double-chainset-36-22-sti-fd-will-work.html

    Much nicer than the Sport SX I built up with a mishmash of 6/7/8-speed 105 and centerpulls. :lol:

    +1 to parting it out, though, unless you want to give away your nice DA/600 stuff for less than...

    I've used nail polish so far, but it chips easily. Thinking about trying Testor's next.

    Looks nice, @Homebrew01! :thumb:

    As for me, the sentimental value of my first road bike precludes me from getting rid of it. I bought this '91 Bianchi Eros shortly before my first RAGBRAI and...

    That is funky! Everybody else was in the ballpark of 5mm for 8-speed, so I'd just go for it. :thumb:

    My plan is much simpler:

    1) choose a Brooks saddle that feels good right out of the box when set up correctly -- no chafing from being too wide, no perineum intrusion from being too narrow/wrong...

    So what are you guys disagreeing about, again? Are you defining the "assist" as coming from the rider's legs, as opposed to the motor?

    Taller teeth may help prevent the chain from falling off, but that's probably a non-issue if your chainline is in the ballpark of being straight and your chain isn't too loose. On an SS/FG, there is...

    I've been experimenting with my M&Gs, and have dropped them from 30/40 to 25/30 this winter. Traction and comfort have improved, and I still don't seem to be in any danger of pinch flatting. ...

    Shouldn't be *that* surprising -- making both high-end/name-brand and low-end/knockoff products to be rebranded is a great way to hold more market share. Lots of companies do it.

    Compared with a lot of posters in this thread, I'm still a relative newcomer at only 3800 miles fixed, all on 3/32" rings/cogs with 1/8" chains. Largely "road" rings, but I have yet to drop a chain...
