    I've had this happen with tubulars and clinchers.

    The only thing I can offer is that it seems to take a lot longer to get out than it did to get in. :)

    Mostly.

    You can get close though.

    Put a straight edge or ruler over the part of the saddle where you actually sit and measure to the BB center from that edge using a tape measure.

    Now put on...

    ProGold ProLink.

    2 drops per roller, let it soak in, wipe off all excess from top, bottom of rollers and side links of the chain.

    Do not mass apply, it is a waste and helps nothing at all. ...

    Why be a mule and carry on your body that which can easily be carried on the bike?

    Camelbaks make sense on a Mt bike where dirt and mud can end up on bottles, but that is not a big problem on road...

    I've got a Waterford and love the crap of of it. Rock solid and very comfortable. Gunnar will give you the same custom build, it just won't be as fancy on the finish work.

    I replaced the 6600 group on my Waterford with 6800 a few months ago.

    The brakes are the cat's meow, very noticeable improvement in power and feel and just damn solid feeling.

    The high end Shimano hubs have always been very good.

    For comparison purposes, you could say that Dura Ace is equal to your NR, Ultegra is 99.99% as smooth and 105 is 99.98% as smooth.

    The faster you go, the farther ahead you need to look for debris.* I regularly ride down the improved shoulder on loop 360 in Austin at 30-45 and have never had a need to move into the travel lane.

    I no longer say anything as the rider I am passing:

    A) has something jammed into their ears and can't hear a damn thing anyway.
    B) Is easily startled and swerves left the moment I say, "on your...

    Absolutely correct answer.

    The only tolerable excuse would be trying to remove some heavily corroded part on an old bike. You might end up having to mess up that part, but screwing up...

    Not really. The forward and rearward facing glass on trains has a very stringent spec. It must be able to withstand a 22LR shot as well as a cinder block as well as rocks and other debris before it...

    This is best.

    RR tracks should be crossed at a 90 degree angle. If the tracks are not perpendicular to the road, you'll want to get set up in advance to cut across them.

    The hanger should not move just because the QR is tightened. Take it off, check the nubs or whatever alignment bits are on it and file away until the hanger sits on the frame perfectly. Then bolt it...

    I believe the suggested standard is 2mm per side, 4mm total travel.

    For me, I quit getting FD rub out of the saddle when Octalink (BB-7700) came out. Everything since then has more than stiff enough to prevent FD rub which is all I really care about.

    Yes, that was...

    I'd guess you'd get blown out the back within 10 minutes of the start even in a Cat 5 race.

    Go ride a Saturday or Sunday morning A ride with the local club or team and see how you fare.

    A much larger portion of rolling resistance is the type of road surface you are riding on. You can lose 2-3mph on rough chip and seal road vs. a nice smooth black top for the same watts of effort.

    The only reason I can think that it wouldn't fit would be that the down tube or seat tube extend into the BB shell and interfere with a cartridge style BB. Frame builders could be a bit sloppier with...

    A frame of that vintage should have a very standard Italian threaded BB shell. If you measure it, it should be 70mm wide.

    I hydroplane all the time. You just need to dial in 400 watts to do it.
