    I love the people who don't tick me off. The rest of them I could do without. :lol:

    I should add that my estimates are ebay prices on a good day. Craigs list local sales, if you can find a local buyer knowledgeable enough to appreciate what you have, divide by 2.

    It's actually a good thing that she was put away with oil on the exterior parts. Rather than risk messing something up if you are not a competent and experienced bike mechanic, I would recommend...

    When I removed an apparently well-cared-for Campy Record pedal from a Campy Nuovo Record crank arm, the threads from the arm came out on the pedal's threads. It was all over pretty quick. Had to...

    I've got plenty of car repair war stories I won't bore you guys with, but related to the discussion about lost parts above, there was the time when I was reinstalling the 24-valve DOHC 6-in-line...

    I've ended up with black tires on a few of my bikes and they just leave me wishing I could have found Continental GP4000's and Sprinters in tan. The black makes the wheels look bulkier and heavier.

    Nice job! Makes good sense, too, because it ventilated the on- the- hoods grip area. Go to Harbor Freight and get some countersink bits so you can make the hole and taper in one pass.

    In RC model boat racing I hand-cut my own lettering from Monokote vinyl trim sheet with an X-acto knife. These pictures show a 2-layer cut I did to produce a shadow effect. A sign shop might do the...

    ppg667, you don't say, so I'll ask, did you inflate the tires to riding pressure while they were mounted to stretch on the rims overnight? I've ridden tubies for 40+ years and never had to wrestle...

    If the difference is 2mm, you only have to move the wheel 1mm to make it equal spacing (what you take from one side you give to the other). One mm is .040" or the thickness of three playing cards. ...

    I put a cheapo post in the lathe and turned in down .2 mm. Chucked it by the bottom 1" and then cut off that last 1" when I was done. I would never do that to a great post.

    I've never found anything of note on the road while bicycling. Unless you count rattlesnakes. One weekend on the Skyline Drive, it was like a rattlesnake rally or something. Luckily most were...

    Give it a go and keep an eye on it. If the HS bearing starts getting loose, take a closer look. I have no experience with broken steerer tubes, but I do know that when things fatigue and break, it...

    Just be aware that all the removal methods suggested above, except the vise method, have the potential to bend the axle or the skewer, so check your work before and after reassembly.

    Looks to me like it wore a groove in the steerer tube all the way around, just above the lower crown race. If that's the case, I'd be worrying that the steerer tube could snap off right there at the...

    That's a good question. I hesitate to use anything that is held on with a double-stick tape adhesive. I can well imagine it pulling the paint off the frame when I try to remove it.
