    Own a disc bike? Try changing the skewer tension and watch the brake rub. You did notice the fleet of disc bikes in my sig? I've also run a free bike clinic for 6yrs and this is in fact a thing with...

    I've built a few Disc Truckers and Stragglers,and if I was going to go with a drop bar steel disc gravel/cross bike,I'd pick an All City Macho Man. The Tektro brakes aren't as nice as the Surlys'...

    Can't help with just the frames,but my '05 Coda Elite weighed 24lbs 4oz for a 19" complete bike. I also had a Comp,but didn't weigh it,but I'd say it weighed maybe a pound or so less.

    ^^^ We just built up one of those ECR's last week. They are pretty sweet. With some balloon tires they'd be a super comfy commuter.

    I've built a couple Bianchi Vigorelli's and they're pretty sweet. My friend has an older model that he loves. I've also built a couple All City Mr Pinks. They're all steel,and will take 32's if you...

    I'd like to find another Mezzo D10(wish I hadn't sold mine). Also considering upgrading to a superlight Brommie since I work for a shop that's a dealer now.

    The BB2 is what's called the Bad Boy Ultra over here. It's basically a MTB with 700c wheels and skinny tires. If you swap on a 26" wheelset,you can run wide MTB knobbies. So with a 2nd wheelset,it's...

    Count the number of turns when you open the skewer,then tighten it the same number when you close it. If you use a different number of turns on the skewer,it will make it tighter or looser than...

    Pics would help. From your description,it should be ok as long there's some slack in the cable when the bars are fully turned in both directions. The Surly Stragglers we build at the shop get inline...

    My Speed Pro TT has a DualDrive setup(stock). It does give a nice wide range,and you can shift the 'triple' at a stop. But it's heavy(3lbs 11oz for the wheel w/cassette),you need to carry a 15mm...

    Shimano's hydros are pretty nice. Unless you're looking at an Xmart bike whose parts just say 'Shimano',I wouldn't worry about it. You could also prolly look up better specs on GT's own website.

    Flea 2.0 Front & Rear USB Combo - Blackburn Design

    Not cheap,but they're bright enough to be my only lights. They're on my helmet so I...

    These are the old levers:
    464076

    If they're more 'crooked' that those,they're the new ones.

    Dude,be nice. If you don't like someone's posting,just ignore it. You're not required to involve yourself in every thread. You've been especially grouchy over in the Mechanics forum.

    While it is a proprietary system,it's been around for like 15yrs or so. I don't think C'dale has gone a year without at least one model featuring it. So it's not some one-off thing that you won't be...

    I think you'll have better success if you sweet talk her. :p :D

    You could always try getting her and your son on bikes and turn it into a family thing.

    I've seen these,but never played with one. I believe you put a hex key in one side to hold the bolt and loosen the other side until the stem moves. Try it and see what happens. If you have a local...

    Just curious,but which levers do the Shimano bikes have? Here in DC,they started upgrading the standard brake levers to curved 'dog leg' ones. They have much improved feel over the old ones. Brakes...

    We carry Felt at my shop. They're decent bikes,about as good as any of the other name brands;pretty much on par with the Cannondales we carry. That parts spec looks decent for the price. Can't...

    Planet Bike's 'Hybrid+Touring' size will fit,as will SKS's in the similar size range. Most fenders are aftermarket and not OEM.

    What other bikes? Riding position,weight,gearing,are all factors that are going to make a difference. The high gear on that bike is only about 72",which isn't much. I doubt that just swapping the...

    Check your rim size here just to be sure:
    Tire Dimensions | Schwalbe North America

    Somewhere on your rim should be a sticker that says something like "622xNN" with NN being your rim width.
