    For what it's worth, and I know I'm late to the party - I made some measuring sticks out of nipples and spokes.

    I hit the spoke threads with a chisel, so that the nipple wouldn't move without some...

    On vintage steel, the quill stem just looks better to me. Adding a quill-to-threadless adapter and a stem just adds bulk that doesn't do anything except look out of place.

    On a CF bike with a...

    Agreed on the Sunlite 2-bolt quill stem. I have one for an IGH build on a Univega frame because I don't want to remove a grip to remove/swap handlebars. I only have a shifter on the right bar end,...
  4. Shimano Nexus 8-speed shifter cable housing specs

    I have a nexus 8-speed hub (8C31) that I'm using for my first IGH build. I didn't buy the Shimano shifter because I'm going to use the j-TEK barend shifter with it.

    I'm in Cadiz too, would like someone to ride with on the road or the trail. Losing some weight would be good for me too. If that works for you, leave a message here and we'll figure out when we can...

    I have this exact bag and the two small pockets you can easily reach while riding are really handy. I have not noticed much flopping around with mine, but depending on your stem and headtube height,...

    This SKS Airchecker gauge works on presta and schrader valves, and has proven accurate for me. I've checked it against about 10 different gauges and it's right in the middle of the bunch. Before...

    Wouldn't it be simpler (and less messy) to carry a spare quick link? What does that add to the underseat pack, 1/2 ounce? I carry several with me, for different chain widths. If I can help someone...

    I must have missed something here. If the quick link fails, how does a chain tool help? Wouldn't you just use a spare quick link?

    I guess that if the chain actually breaks, you would need to...
