    If Jim bought into the eBay International Shipping Program, that wouldn't have happened. The seller is guaranteed not to have to issue a refund for delivery failure if sold internationally through...

    Nah, the issue was that when you'd turn the valve to shut it, it failed to shut off completely. The internal rubber washer had disintegrated. The unit itself wasn't corroded. The plumber knew this....

    Indeed, same old story across many markets. I was told by a reputable plumber in my area that a simple shut-off valve for my upstairs bathroom couldn't be fixed-- too old. It would have to be...

    For Neal to pose a mechanical inquiry indicates a serious problem given his Mad Mechanix Skilz.

    I don't think the resistance caused by either rub scenario is significant enough to worry about. I...

    My Lyon is the best bike in my collection in terms of everything I want in a bike: smooth, stable, fast, good climber. It also happens to look great! Here it is on its maiden voyage:

    Damn. I was going to offer $33.50, but missed the window. Do you offer a sniping service, Neal?

    Bump. Seriously? No one has a bashed up fender they're willing to let go?
  9. WTB/WTT: Your banged up, cracked or bent alloy fender

    I'm looking for some bashed up, broken or otherwise unwanted aluminum fenders (Honjo, VO, Electra, etc). They're not for a bike, but to re-purpose as a display for the taillights that I am now...

    I've got two if the other two are secured, and I've got four if you still need all four. They're dirty but not mangled or scratched to hell. They'd clean up just fine.

    Got an 8-speed or 9-speed...

    Are they all drilled? Or are the cast with the bore? I'm also interested to know whether that bore diameter varies not only from sample to sample but from model to model.
  13. Correct! Don't try heating! Too much heat will...

    Correct! Don't try heating! Too much heat will concentrate at one point along the arc, and will collapse the fender. You'll end up with a sharp kink and warpage and you'll never return the fender...
  14. A favor to ask of Nitto quill stem owners

    I need to take a survey of Nitto stem measurements as part of R&D I am doing for the development of a dynamo switch for quill stems. I am focusing on Nitto stems only, any and all models (Technomic,...

    I've had a few comments by people who come up to my bikes to ask questions. Usually it's because they're _not_ familiar with it but they find it interesting. But the most gratifying comment I got...

    I will have a web store set up soon, but I wanted to wait until I could launch both the taillight and switch simultaneously. Since the switch is having production delays, I am selling the taillight...

    Thanks! The stem is the only part on the bike that I had a hand in designing-- I had originally ordered just a frame+fork, expecting to use a stock 9/8" stem with shim. Along the way, I discovered...

    I always have to capture the glamour shots before they get dirty. Unlike popular belief, my bikes aren't usually as clean as in my photographs!

    That Holdsworth conversion is pretty neat, and it...

    Since this thread was resurrected, I'll post my new randonneur: a purpose-built randonneur by custom frame builder Jeff Lyon, who is based in Grants Pass, OR. Jeff has been building 650B randonneurs...

    While true that most bikes can be used for randonneuring, I wouldn't recommend touring bikes. Touring bikes tend to be overbuilt, for carrying heavy loads. They are not designed to be sprightly and...

    Jeunet 630 (Reynolds 531 DB frame and fork) converted to 700c 3-speed porteur. My winter beater. It was in the teen temps when I took this. The only change since this photo is there is now a mudflap...

    I'm glad it worked well for you! Yeah, I hate Rt 28 and usually avoid it like the plague, but I figured a couple of miles wouldn't hurt you and you'd get to cross the bridge. But what you mentioned...

    Great! One slight modification you might consider is taking Main st (Rt 28) from Delhi on the return leg for the first 3 miles (1st mile is in town, the next two are 55mph), then cross Fitch's...
