    Not a problem, I run like that all the time on my 27" wheeled bikes.

    Yeah, I think he got pissed that we were cutting into his ride talking about the bike. He took off before we were done talking and we didn't realize it. Screw him, how often do you see an Alex Singer...

    The guy was definitely not a bike guy, figures, they always have the nice bikes. He had an idea that the bike was nice but no idea why. I said I loved the custom rack and seatstay cluster with brazed...

    I was doing a ride with my 5yo daughter today on the Farmington Valley Greenway when a group of older riders passed us. Amongst the blah bikes was an orange beauty, but they were gone before I could...

    The mullet is totally fine, the Huffy, inexcusable.

    Seriously man, you have done what never has been done in the history of BF. Most times the beleaguered Huffy enthusiast would leave in a huff....

    I've received the most compliments on my hot rodded Peugeot U08. I think a lot of people remember them from the 70's. Another time a guy correctly identified the fillet brazing and complimented me on...

    Way to be resourceful. Moped parts can indeed be used on bicycles from time to time. I need to hit up teatland.TV for some cables for vintage MTB brake levers I've got. Glad your experiment worked...

    I have stem, DT, and thumbie friction shifting bikes in addition to indexed DT, brifter, and trigger shifting bikes. I have to admit that shifting the friction DT bike with Suntour freewheel and...

    Be careful about listening to the "experts". There is more to bicycles and riding than just the weight of the frame. This mentality comes from a focus on racing, where 1/2 of a pound on the bike may...

    I think of they can show it will put out enough power to run a nice B&M light, then I am all for it. I doubt it'll do that though.

    I agree with this. I am a dental hygienist and in our field the link between periodontal (gum) disease and atherosclerosis is well known. Periodontal infections are a huge source of chronic...

    I don't ride clipless on any of my bikes. It's just too expensive to figure out which system I like, get the shoes, and a dozen of the same pedals. I just ride what's on the bike with a stiff soled...

    I sold the framesets to a forum member at a swap a couple months ago. I wish him luck with the sale, I'm just happy to have some space back in my basement.

    I think you know what the deal is from this excerpt. Riding at night is cool, a completely different vibe than riding in the day. In addition, geeking out with lights is fun.

    I say do what feels good to you. There are plenty of people doing it the "right" way who experience pain. If it's wrong for you, your body will tell you.

    I wouldn't be concerned about the cranks at all. They look like a 130bcd road double that someone threw on there. I seriously doubt they are original and I would look at them as an item that needed...

    Dynamo lights are much cheaper in Europe. I believe the new Cyo lights can be had for around $60 where they are around $100 in the US. Sidewall dynamos are also much cheaper if you are OK with them.
