    I didnt mean to imply that the riding partner would be a wacko. However, I have been on tours where my riding partner and myself were not good matches in important aspects such as pace, miles per...

    I tried trekking bars on a trip across the US and did not care for them. They offered me LOTS of hand positions but not ONE really great position. I now use drops and spend about 90% of my time on...

    Just go alone. If you would prefer to go alone anyways, dont take someone who you dont know well and that could negatively impact your trip just because of the very very slim chance of a robbery. As...

    Where did you get a Flying Pigeon and can I have one too?!?!??! I know there are one or two importers in CA but the costs have been crazy whenever I looked.

    I completely agree but thats a bit out of my budget for the moment and I would be afraid to ruin it with road salt!

    What dont you like about the coaster brake? I havent had a bike with one in years but I hear they are good in the winter because they dont freeze solid and are good even when wet.

    Since it seems like we have established that the current frame would be less than ideal to use with this hub, do you still want me to measure the width of the hub? Are all nexus hubs pretty standard?...
  14. I agree. I would rather have something more...

    I agree. I would rather have something more permanent. Can anyone recommend some frames that I might be able to find easily on the used market or frames that I can buy cheaply new? I used to have a...

    I was planning to use an old Surly Singlator to tension the chain. I know this will slightly decrease the efficiency of the already somewhat inefficient hub but dont mind all that much. Will the...

    Hi all,

    I'm a year round cyclist here in Michigan and just ran across a nexus 7 speed internally geared hub with a coast break laced into a nice 26 inch Weinmann hub. This would make an ideal...
  17. Yet another "revolutionary" bicycle invention

    Just saw this in the news this morning but it seems that we have all seen this pop up as a concept 3-4 years ago. What do you think? Will this revolutionize anything in the USA or just be another...

    Great point! Can you tell me how or show me a link? Do you mean taking off the front wheel? The back wheel?
