    I buy the 1lb tub of marine trailer/axle grease at the big-box hardware/farm store for $4 or so. I get about a year's worth of use out of it with the amount of wrenching I do. I suppose I might do...

    You really want to have 1/4" bits with a 1/4" torque wrench. You don't want to put any extension, size converter or unnecessary anything between the head of the torque wrench and the fastener as it...

    Like it was said above, SRAM and Shimano cable pull/indexing is not the same. Dump the SRAM FD and get yourself a Shimano one. This is the easiest/cheapest way rather than trying to swap out an...

    I agree.

    Simply soaking parts in mineral spirits and scrubbing with a good stiff nylon brush works wonders too. Replace any rusted fasteners if necessary, cables, chain, and it should be good to...

    I think you can still find the vinyl covers for the old Brooks saddles NOS.

    I remember my first build with butted spokes. I had built quite a few straight-gauge wheels up to the point and I thought I knew what I was doing. I didn't. While the front wheel lasted until the...

    I'm not totally familiar off-hand without any more info exactly what came on the 1986 Trek 1500. More info would certainly help. "Shimano 600" covers a whole lot of ground.

    New cables, housing, and pads will make the brakes better than new. Aero brakes brought in a new era of better leverage and braking. You'll need to remove the tape & re-wrap the bars too to get to...

    LUBRIPLATE MAG-l grease is supposed to be the "hot" ticket for ultra-low temperature greased applications. Or you can just use 90w gear oil instead of or in addition to a tiny bit of grease.
