    The Bikepedia link shows DA7800 (10-speed) while the Dura Ace parts on the bike in the ad are DA7700. I smell a parts-bin build. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, except for those junk wheels...

    Your method of transport shouldn't be causing BB failure but it still can't be good for the bike. Best case scenario I imagine it sliding and banging around back there. I used to have a truck with...

    I bought some stuff from Trail This, I've only been in the store maybe twice though. Seemed like a nice shop. I'm not sure if they specialize in MTBs in particular but maybe.

    I do almost all my...

    It's definitely the feel good "if I wear a helmet this hopefully won't happen to me" thought process. At least that's where my mind was at, intentional or not.

    Thinking about it more I suppose it...

    But did you already buy all the new 105 parts??? Because those brifters are definitely not going to work with anything 6-speed... If you're really paranoid one thing you could do is run a 7-speed...

    First off let me echo the sentiment that I'm very happy you survived. I doubt the pedal caused a crash that bad but anything is possible. I'm wondering if a car bumped you but that's impossible to...

    They are "set it and forget it" in the sense that you should never have to adjust them if they were done right the first time. But they do play a big factor in proper shifting and need to be fine...

    +1

    8/9/10 speed Shimano/SRAM cassettes all fit on the same body. Swap the cassette over and you should be good. Do consider the frame spacing issue as mentioned above. Tiagra should be 130mm but...

    Brakes and RD will be fine with the Sora, FD probably not. Since it's indexed you would need a Shimano "road" FD to make it work. Note that the Shimano "MTB" FDs use a different cable pull.

    There's a BMW Z4 that's been "priced to sell" on the local craigslist for probably a year now. I wonder who he thinks he's fooling.

    Now that you have a set of new wheels my recommendation would be to replace all the nipples now with brass ones, before they get corroded and cause you problems. I'm assuming these are machine built...

    Your question is sort of like, "how do I keep my unpainted steel car from rusting?" Answer: in the long run, you can't.

    If they were the same price or very close I'd get the Ultegra. At that price difference I'd get the Tiagra. Both will work just fine.

    That's a good idea. I've never ruined a crank arm from pedal damage before but I have a few that look pretty rough.

    Cool old bike, the 531 tubing is going to be its claim to fame. I'd put that in the title of the ad for sure. Also, axle to axle length is pretty much meaningless. Instead list the dimensions of the...

    As they are no longer available I feel it necessary to hoard them for myself. Sorry! But you can still find them on ebay. I've found quite a few attached to cranksets at my local bike co-op. IMO...

    This is a little off topic but FWIW they did make a 50T Biopace ring in the 110 BCD (of which I have at least one) so something like 50/38/26 could theoretically be run on a 110/74 compact triple. I...

    It will work, yes, but front shifting to the middle and big rings will not be great. You will probably have to "overshift" a little to get into a larger ring and/or cut it some slack. As much as I...

    Until you actually listen to all of us telling you to POST PICTURES I'm done wasting my time on you. A hopeless cause if I ever saw one.

    Yep. I bought and then re-sold a very similar one for $50 a couple years ago. Wanted to like it, my butt hated it :(

    +1 Bike is way too big for you if you ride it as pictured. The give away is the seatpost slammed down to the frame.



    No, the 6 or 7 speed cassette will definitely not work with modern brifters....

    As far as I know, and I could be wrong about this, ALL Campy Ergo have the ability to shift a triple. But I have never used them with a triple so I don't know for sure. Hopefully someone else will...

    The exact year is not terribly important, it's definitely later 1980s. Nice mid-level bike. It's obviously been sitting for quite a while judging by the old, flat tires and old looking...

    The Motobecane is way too big for you. Pass.

    The Shogun looks about right but it's not a touring bike, if that's what you wanted. Realize you'll see about 100 used road bikes for every 1 *true*...
