    Those don't look too bad, I would just throw them in a vinegar bath for a bit then clean them up with a bit of tin foil. You'd be surprised the amount of rust you can clean up with those basic...

    That there is the likely problem. I don't trust shops to do something as vital as tighten a cog and lockring, even if it was from a shop that caters mainly to fixed gear I would double check. If your...

    Those dropouts are just plain weird, I searched and can't find nothing that has that style of dropout at that angle. Without seeing more detail of the bike it is hard to say any more about it to...

    What he is talking about it how far the chain wraps around the freewheel before it does down to the tensioner. If your chain doesn't wrap around the freewheel enough it could explain the skip since...

    Semantics. I guess he could potentially use a tandem stoker stem if the angle of one works for him and he can find one with a seatpost clamp size that fits the fork steerer size. Beyond that I'm...

    I find it to be fine for me, however I generally travel on well known roads with streetlights every 100 ft. and at a speed of about 15 mph. However I would say the Blinder 4 is more of a to-be-seen...

    Bearings are fine to be caked in grease, atleast proper grease like he appears to be using. Helps prevent rust and keeps things running smooth over the thousands of rotations the bearings will...

    Cottered cranks, just a silly piece of technology. However, if I was a steampunk enthusiast I would want that bike mounted to a wall in my room, it oozes mechanical cool with that look.
