    Yeah, uh, your bike's bas are 1" diameter at the center, where the stem clamps down on them. They're 7/8" in diameter at the grips and controls. That's basically the standard for cruiser...

    The way I look at it, it's a more universal way of expressing the ratios. Your 44/17 seems like a good medium-sized gear for on-road cruising, but a 44/17 on a 20" would be quite low. For a...

    Gear-inches are a throwback to the time of highwheelers; the pedals were grafted to the front hub, so the gearing of your final drive was measured by the diameter of your front wheel! So, having a...

    Yes. You'll need 1/2" spindles; MKS does make excellent pedals, but most all of them are the 9/16" spindle size for 3 piece cranks. I've down well with VP beartrap-style pedals, but really, you...

    Never heard of it either, but your bike looks Austrian or German.... Cottered cranks would be a deal-breaker, for me.

    https://www.google.com/#q=pasela%20sidewall I'm not alone. The tire would be great, if they beefed up the sidewall. They cut weight on a tire that's not exactly lightweight anyway, at the expense...
