    +1

    I got mine from this place... A lot of combinations available. I got black with the "Atomic Blast" design, and kept my original silver cap screw... Sometimes it makes me think of Big Bang...

    I use an Avenir Excursion Rack top bag, and from what I see of the Wald rack, it should work well for you.

    There are some hitch racks that provide some rise directly out of the receiver.

    Even today some 7 speeds use freewheels... The thing that often makes me think freewheel is if the high gear is 14 teeth, then it could be a freewheel.

    Since the 950 wasn't an entry level bike,...

    Nice looking bike!

    Is your bike a 7 speed freewheel or cassette? You mention freewheel in the subject, and cassette in the text. They are different beasts.

    Freewheel or Cassette?

    As far as...

    I don't know about what you think of the color(s) but the Surly Disc Trucker (complete bike) is in your price range. It has cable activated disc brakes, but I don't really know about the pros and...

    As evidenced by the image RonH posted, the difference between 23 mm and 25 mm is 211 vs 210, so the difference is less than 0.5% That is probably about the difference between a new tire, and an old...

    I haven't tried that specific saddle, but of the few cheaper noseless saddles I have tried, I have not found one that I find comfortable.
    I am currently riding a Selle SMP TRK saddle (not noseless)...

    A short internet search showed several medical article summaries that explained that there was a small rise in PSA for long bicycle rides (I know one was based on 250 miles in a few days) but that it...

    If you don't know much, how do you know you want to go to 23 or 24 mm tires?

    My guess is someone has convinced you that anything over 23 mm is inefficient.

    But, to answer your question, brakes...

    Unless the customer asked to replace the pedals... I don't knoww if this is the case, but the use of the term, "Thus far, I've had them..." makes me think that the customer was making the decisions,...

    If you simply must ride that, I would suggest going to the local hardware or auto parts store and getting 4 or 5 hose clamps of the appropriate size to add some lateral support.

    In this case, I am guessing that someone turned their nose up at the fact that he was riding an Ultegra group instead of Dura-Ace, or that he was using that old cable activated group when DI-2 is...

    I thought I would help and I looked, but the Asian section in the regional forums here seems to have only minimal activity... YOu may want to ask there anyway, in case someone checks in occasionally...

    Things might be different depending on where you are, and who gets ripped off, but when I had a $100 portable CD player stolen many years ago, along with several CDs from my car, the police couldn't...

    I find it interesting that they suggested a specific bike without more info.

    So, I will ask what they should have.

    What sort of riding do you expect to do?

    What made you choose the Gran...

    Absolutely!

    For chromed steel rims, Peugeot (and possibly others) even tried textured rims back in the 70's, which didn't do anything to help braking in wet conditions... In fact, as I recall, my...

    Every steel rim I have seen is chrome plated, so if you are seeing rust, it has probably bubbled through the chrome. Depending on how bad they are, you will never get them close to where they were...

    If you were buying a $400 bike, I would say skip it. But for a more expensive bike, I would do it, to get the best out of the bike. However, one caveat... I would never assume that once things are...

    I just scanned the thread, but I don't see a 3x9 as 27 speed. If it were a car, I would see it as a 9 speed with a 3 speed differential. In other words, don't shift the front until the conditions...

    I agree with the expense issue. With the expense of most things on bicycles, anything under $100 is pretty minimal.

    Trek may have thought things through enough that whatever comes in the future...

    Don't you think it is silly to have a proprietary attachment that will mean nothing after about 4 or 5 years when Trek abandons it, or moves to DuoTrap 3? If a standard mounting method was developed...
