    The tiny dark colored phillips head screw at the bottom of the V brake arm adjusts the tension on the spring. Tighten the one nearest the rim a turn or two and loosen the opposite one the same...

    I'm a bit slow today. Just noticed how funny the thread headline is.:thumb:

    The crank puller is fun to use but beware. I am probably not the only amateur mechanic that forgot to get the crank bolt washer out of there causing the puller to strip out the threads.

    I agree with what has been said above. It will be a piece of metal or glass or sharp gravel in the pad. It happens more to me when riding in wet conditions. But assuming you find it and dig it out of...

    I don't think you'll find an adjustable stem for 1 1/4 steerer. That's what I have on my Santana Tandem and the best I could do was buy a high rise stem from Yellow Jersey in Madison WI.

    p.s. I...

    This will sound like a joke but how about "Drogue Chute". In the tandem world they have an expensive gadget called a "drag brake". I don't live in steep country but I have thought about having my...

    I run my shift cables all the way under the tape. I do use a bar bag and don't like the way "flying whiskers" style interferes. It adds a small amount of friction to the shifting, but you can...

    Thank you for the follow up. It is encouraging that they (you?) are still riding after this horrific experience. I am also curious about civil liability in this case. I assume there was a policy...

    What is your vision for the cargo carrying structure? Before I would make irreversible changes, I'd look at how the seat post and it's stays might be needed to support a rack (perhaps made out of a...

    For end caps I use a couple of drops of fabric paint. It prevents fraying and stabbing but comes off with fingernails when you want to run it back up the housing. You can even get a color that goes...

    I have the 3 degree rise that came stock on my '98 Arriva but it's not quite what you're asking for. I think it's 10 cm. I replaced that with an 8 cm high rise which I got from Yellow Jersey so I...

    Better, you don't have to keep up with and fuss with another piece of gear. If have on long pants, it's there on my ankle waiting. And I don't need bash guards on all my bikes.

    Get some elastic chord or ribbon from a fabric store and cut and sew it so it fits on your ankle over your sock without stretching. When you get ready to mount your bike just fold your pant leg and...

    Nice triple to quad conversion for two kids in the middle. The first kid has to be very light, the seat post is waaay canted.

    On the trouble getting the tandem to your third floor balcony, perhaps you could get permission to mount a pulley and use a rope to hoist the bike up there with your partner to swing it in over the...

    OP, I think you presume too much. I wear buds so I can answer the Iphone when my wife calls me. Not every ear bud is blasting heavy metal music. I can still hear you.

    I'd ride what you have but look for a donor bike actively, even put your own "bike wanted" add on nearby Craigslist. The 26" wheel with freewheel cogs is very common to mtn bikes and hybrids. I see...

    Jona, I don't mean you should go all the way down to a wheel with structural rust. Just that used bikes with suitable wheels (7 speed freewheel) are very common. You may have to ride what you have...

    There's a good chance you can find a "donor" bike on craigslist etc for less than a wheel at a bikeshop.

    My bikes take 7 speed and one 8 speed. The chains run about $10. My wife has a 9 speed but hasn't put enough miles to need a new chain. My son has a 10 speed and we went to the Lbs for a new chain...
