    Oh yeah guess they aren't guaranteed to be 8sp. 7 sp looked pretty much the same. Maybe 6sp too...

    Nope. Sorry, forgot about your 6-sp freewheel. You'd need 8-sp freewheel, to respace/redish your wheel and probably spread your rear triangle a bit.

    Like Thermionic said, 6-sp indexed DT...

    You could always grab a 7400 rear derailleur. With a little patience on eBay you should be able to score one for $20

    I ride 43x16 fixed. I go a hair lower SS usually, since I don't have to spin it down the hills.

    That would be a long ride. Not even exactly sure where abouts in Oregon that is but it's gotta be a long ways out in the sticks.

    You can make light bikes out of anything. Aluminum light bikes are generally cheaper than Steel, carbon, or titanium light bikes, however.

    Actually bike frames are alloys also. Typically 7005 or 6061 these days.


    The alloy composition of 7005 is:


    Aluminium 91.0% - 94.7%
    Chromium 0.06% - 0.20%
    Copper <=0.10 %
    Iron <=0.40...

    40mm tyres are beginning to be back in style again.

    Was that ATC measurement with you on the bike?

    I'd go for this $30 one if you're handy with a rattle can. The 410 ATC might drop the front end too much, though.

    I would glare at the mechanic as he unboxed the bike.

    If he reached for a sticker : "Don't even think about it. I'll cut you! " ;)

    Waitamminit, so you essentially paid someone to take off a sticker and a license plate frame?

    I wouldn't think that kind of spreading would weaken it much.

    Is it completely deformed now? As in, if you remove the nut, does the bottom of the stem remain splayed out like that?

    14mph on a 35 pound comfort bike with the rear brake dragging a bit is a good workout.

    Even MTBs are getting away from triples. Plenty of high end MTBs with 2x and 1x setups these days.

    11-42 cassettes are widely available and there's even an aftermarket 45T big cog, so a big...

    I like triples because I gotta have a 1:1 low gear (or thereabouts) but dislike the gaps even in a 13-34, let alone an 11-34 cassette.

    So 50/40/26 up front and 11-26 in back = best gearing ever! ...

    Which orange? Crux Expert?

    If you like the frame, it looks like it's available separately.

    It doesn't look that dirty to me. It's more a job of lubing/cleaning all the rust, cleaning out all the old grease from bearings and repacking with new, etc.

    I don't remember Trek doing wishbone seatstays, either.

    Probably not any later than 1996, since it has a canti stop on it.
