    I'd try a wide range 12-13-15-18-21-24-28 or a closer 13-14-16-18-20-23-26.

    Some high carbon knife blades rust very fast. Instead of polishing them every day, some owners use vinegar or some weak acid to achieve a "grey rust" finish and then keep them lightly oiled.

    I drilled an oil port in my hub and injected 20ml ATF on it, drained and refilled every 5000km or so. I'm hoping the ATF reaches the drive side cone - it's not sealed from the rest of the hub, and as...

    You can have as many as 30 or 33 separate gears (meaning combinations of 3 front and 10 or 11 rear sprockets) in a bicycle today, but some of these are duplicates or not recommended, so the actual...

    Don't know about the slipping, but I have a Nexus 8 with 13000 kms and it always felt like grinding in 4th gear. No problems so far, Shimano says it's normal to hear noises in all gears in certain...

    I saw that as a kid. Another boy had a bike with tubulars and there was a skidding contest.

    I was assuming an aluminum alloy stem with recessed bolt. If you can weld an hex wrench there without ruining the stem, then you're a Master Welder! And you don't really need a chisel, an old 1/4" or...

    Welding would ruin the stem. I'd rather grind a small chisel and force it into the hex recess, then turn with vise grip. The bolt probably isn't too tight.

    Metal platform on my commuter, short toe clips w/o straps on my dirt/gravel bike, clipless on my road bike.

    A complete bike would probably be less expensive, unless you can pick all the best bargain offers on groups, wheels, frames, etc., but I'd rather build my own bikes because I enjoy it.

    I did some touring with my True Temper KHS and it performed very well. I suppose any good quality MTB steel frame with rigid fork would be good for touring, esp. if it has eyelets for racks.

    Never been too close to a lightning strike, but it must be really scary!

    I'm 172cm/5' 8" with long legs and ride a 54 and a 55. I've been told they are on the large side for me, but I feel comfortable on both.

    I had pulleys as worn out as yours after 2-3 years of riding in dusty dirt roads, with some mud now and then, and I cleaned and lubed them regularly. I don't think it's abnormal.
