    Buy the correct remover for your cluster of rear cogs. Remove the assembly and you will know for sure. Helps to reduce the possibility of ordering the wrong item.

    I had the same problem over a year ago. I called Rivendale to ask if they sold the spring and they told me to take apart a ball point click type pen and use the spring from that.

    80-1.00 a piece for spokes is standard at a shop. Your local bike shop has to stock them and there are many, many lengths for each size of wheel plus straight gauge and butted plus ovalized and...

    Don't just attend meetings, speak up! If a neighborhood or urban street, ask why they are designing 11 and 12 foot wide lanes, it only encourages speeding, 10' or 10'-6" lanes are plenty wide even...

    I didn't see a broken spoke in the pics, I did see a spoke with a separated nipple. Did the nipple pull out of the rim or was it taken apart to show how it's connected?

    Looking at the pics in the C&V thread, it looks like someone may have added a third chainring. In the early 80's the Galaxy came with SR brand crank with 40/52 detachable chainrings; the Super...

    The rim size should be plainly stamped into the rim; the tires will also have the same size markings on them.

    I loved the foot out at 3:30 to try to protect himself from the left turning taxi, if that is how he protects himself from being hooked then he really needs some sense pounded into him.

    Don't ride without a front brake, most of your stopping power is from the front.
