    This is definitely the 119mm OLD version. I'm using it on a 126mm-spaced frame, with the 4mm keyed anti-turn washers on the inside. Not sure what that would have to do with the chainline, though --...
  2. Sturmey Archer X-RF5(w) chainline weirdness: help?

    I picked up a wheel with a Sturmey-Archer X-RF5(w) rear hub from eBay. It looks great; all the locknuts and washers are in the right places, according to the instructions. However, something seems...

    W/R/T the Dynohub: on the early models, the terminals are set into a black plastic disc on the coil armature. That plastic gets brittle over time, and it's possible (I know, because I did...

    Most of the country dogs around here are some kind of pitbull mix. I've found that they top out at around 16mph. So if it's that kind of dog, and I'm in a safe place to ride fast, I just zoom up to...

    This is correct. IF it's a straight-right lane, and IF it's wide enough to share, then you'll want to wait on the stop bar at the LEFT side of the lane. NOT the right side. If you wait on the...

    Interesting. How do you tell the difference? Are the ones in my photo above the all-plastic model, or the aluminum-shank model?

    Mafac plastic brake levers -- safe?

    These Mafac guidonnet levers came to me on, of all things, a Raleigh Superbe. I was thinking I'd like to use them with moustache bars on a city build (Takara touring-ish frame, Sturmey 5-speed hub)...

    I've found that after the initial fiddling to get it right (pro tip: use the narrowest chain your rings and cogs will allow), the Chainglider does not produce noticeable drag or noise.

    Sure, if...

    The cheap (and excellent, in my experience) alternative to the belt drive is the Hebie Chainglider. I can't figure out why they're not more widely available in North America. With the current...

    +1 on the cones-too-tight. Also (something I've done frequently myself, so don't think I'm insulting your intelligence -- seriously, it took me a while to figure this out), sometimes it's not that...

    I did not find that to be true -- after I removed the balls, the lever was much too loose to use. It definitely needs a thin washer of some kind. (Also: that little retaining clip is easy to get...
  15. Friction Washer Suggestion (Suntour Command Shifters)

    Hi. I'm preparing to de-index a Suntour Command Shifter (as detailed in this thread), and see that people recommend replacing the ball bearings with a plastic washer as the friction surface. Any...

    Why don't you just go test-ride 'em (arrange all three appointments for Saturday afternoon, say) and find out what feels good to you? The proof of the pudding...

    +1. Solvents are a much bigger deal than lubricants. As far as where that grease is going, you'll put a lot more of it into landfills on rags, and into municipal water systems from washing your...

    For regular maintenance, I use SnoSeal rather than Proofide. After buffing it really thoroughly, I haven't had any problems.

    For rejuvenating old Brookses, I use Lexol. It does leave a bit of a...

    I've never tried a NuVinci hub, and I'd believe that they're super fun and all, but it really looks terrible on that bike. Also, shouldn't a "city bike" have some kind of chainguard, if not a full...

    Nice job! Tell me you just posted the wrong Specialized in the "before" photo -- you didn't actually change the angle of the top tube, did you? If so, my hat's off.

    Yeah, I wasn't all that impressed either, after all the adoration Kupel's gets. W/R/T the Super Course: what kinda bottom bracket have you got in there?

    Great thread, Neal! I was just thinking of 4 summers ago, when we went for a ride and you very kindly replaced a spoke on my Peugeot (so I got to see the fabled basement). That Lenton Tourist is...
