    My guess is that it has something to do with the bends in the fork. Looks like it had a front end hit.

    Most places that install hitches won't install 2" recievers on cars not rated for towing. One way to get around it is to have them not install the plug for lights. Anything big enough to need a 2"...

    If you get the spacer mounted bell, get the one with the striker and not the spring. The spring bell rings everytime I hit a bump.

    That depends on the length of your dropout and where the axle sits in the dropout currently. I usually say 2 teeth but if the axle is in the middle that will effect how much tension you can take up.

    I'm using this calculator Bicycle Trail Calculator | yojimg.net . This calc doesn't have an input for ATC but implies it from tire width. It's not perfect but it doesn't need to be.

    Basically it will change the headtube angle by raising or lowering the front of the bike. Small changes probably won't be noticed but it's impossible to guess on the interwebs. The best way to...

    Don't just look at the rake, you need to find a matching axel to crown distance too.

    I just bought it from my LBS. I guess they are brand new. Made for 26.0 and 31.8 bars. Clearly modeled after the ones that had the kickstarter but it sounds like a crane.

    I agree that the weight that high might be an issue. I haul more weigh that likes to shift around mid ride (but they respond to yell "sit down!".) Having the weight lower really helps. But bottom...

    I would echo the Brooks suggestion but for a bike that may see wet and rough conditions I choose a C15, the non leather brooks. You should pick between the C15 or C17 based on your backside and...

    Thanks. I agree about the flap, just haven't bought it yet. The frame I built myself in a class and should be the first of many.

    Not sure if I've posted this. This is my all day rider. Mix of vintage and modern parts. I clearly need better photo.

    Another difference (and the one that probable adds the 40g's) is that the TB14's have eyelets where the archetypes don't. That made building the TB14 nicer but that's about it.

    I also agree on the CR18's. I have a 27" 36 hole set laced to Shimano 600 tircolor hubs that have been great for years.
