    Lots of dudes with trucks and bolt cutters. Angle grinders too for that matter. But a dedicated thief might think 4 seconds was an acceptable risk for a KiloTT whereas 45 seconds to angle grind...

    I would lock it to something where I could get the Ulock through around it and through the frame. The way it is now, somebody drives up with a truck, bolt cutters through the cable, throws the bike...

    I had toast for breakfast and the raspberry/blackberry jam did exactly what OP was looking for.

    How many laps do you suppose they were doing? It looked weird because they neither seemed to be going all that fast or terribly bunched up.

    If you want to install the cog yourself you will also need a chain whip and a lock ring tool and grease. If you get a 1/8 inch cog you should also get a 1/8 inch chain whip.

    The dropouts on that frame are nearly vertical so you would need to use a chain tensioner or an eccentric hub or bottom bracket. This bike could never be a fixed gear. If you are looking for a...

    There shouldn't be any spot where the tube sticks out. Put in a little more air and use a tire jack to get the tire on the rim.

    I was a messenger for week in 1997 or 1998. I couldn't hack it. It was better than being a substitute teacher. I only lasted a day at that.

    Hasn't the whole KOM thing been ruined by people driving around with their GPS's in their cars yet? That's what I figured would happen. It's like playing on-line chess. If you play against anyone...

    But it isn't timing. It's the location. If it were timing then then you could keep the location and angle of the turn constant and still be able to affect the outcome. In your sentence above you...

    It is hard to say whether the wheel will come with the cog in place or not. Since you may very well want to change your gearing lockring pliers or a lockring tool are good to have. You can also do...

    Sorry, I don't buy it. Not getting pedal strike has more to do with learning to bank less on you turn and almost nothing to do with "timing". This does go with what hairnet said about slowing down...

    You have to skid in order to avoid pedal strike? It seems like it would be worth it to not have a bike where this is an issue.

    Really. Supposing the location of your turns to be a constant, how does "timing" have any impact on pedal strike at all?

    I always assumed that if my frame were straight that I could pretty reliably use the ruler for centering. You can always flip the wheel around as well. I put paper clips on the ruler as well. ...
