    Thanks! I have a few of these and that does look like a good enough fit that you could get the headset snugged up well enough without marring things.

    I gues that's what I'm asking, is for identification of the "special tool."

    Honest, yes, but stupid/clumsy. 30 seconds on Google would have told the seller there is no Zephal model for Lotus. And the Eclair, the actual model, is a pretty nice bike.

    Interesting. A bike model with the pump brand in its name. Couldn't the seller have worked the tire brand in as well? Maybe the saddle?

    This may be part of your problem. If the bearings are "nice and tight together" you likely have one too many bearings in there. Rule of thumb with loose ball (not caged) bearings is to fill the cup...

    Is your commuter a beauty or a beast?

    I'm guessing more than half of us on the forum have two or more bikes. The designated/de facto commuter is often one of them. I see a number of posters who run a commuter that can be stolen or...

    I just installed on my commuter and tourer the IRD QB55. I've been running them for only a month, so can't speak to durability, but they feel very nice. They also make two higher end models, 75 and...

    Yep, a lot of marketing involved on both ends. And I think they're both right. It's fun to just ride. It's also fun to go fast. Some like one and don't feel particularly drawn to the other. Some...

    Yep, 27" wheels originally, and 126mm rear hub (vs 130 now). The cantis on the bike had enough room in the slot that they slid down the 4mm necessary. And they actually grab the new rims more...
