    Haha, I'm well aware of that, I just don't feel like it's always sufficiently accurate to measure in SAE and convert

    Thinking further on this subject (and having potentially solved the other issue that had me wanting to do the frame transplant), would a 60mm stem and modern compact drops be weird on a 21" frame? I...

    I found a non-lipped cup and installed it yesterday...I've only ridden maybe 18 miles with it so far, so it'll take some more mileage to be sure if my issue is actually solved, but my initial...

    Weird thing is, it'll thread in perfectly happily, and the threads don't appear to be stripped at all! I'll have to see what I can find...I might be able to find a lipless cup like that where I work.

    Realizing that this is an old thread, I have a question about this! What problems can arise from having a shim on the DS, if it causes the NDS cup to not torque correctly against the BB? I have a...

    Are there any out there with horizontal top tubes?
  8. I'm not sure I'm explaining myself well enough. ...

    I'm not sure I'm explaining myself well enough. I like my bars below my saddle, but I'm concerned that using a 19"/50cm frame will put the bars too low unless I use a particularly tall stem.

    I'm assuming those would have cantilever studs, though, which I don't want

    I think shortening the stem enough to make it work for me would negatively impact the handling.

    The Gios and Shogun mentioned above both have cantilever brakes. My plan is to take an existing...
  11. Vintage road bikes with shorter top tubes (or taller head tubes)?

    I have a Panasonic Sport 500 and a Raleigh Marathon, both are 21" frames (please excuse my use of SAE units, I don't have a suitable metric measuring device) with top tubes measuring approximately...

    I got to take one of those for a spin at a tweed ride last month...interesting bike, and that "stamp brake" in the front was interesting

    I have Wellgo BMX pedals (the aluminum ones with sealed cartridge bearings) on two of my bikes, and the Fyxation Mesa pedals on a third...they're great, and I agree with pretty much everything that's...

    A couple people made that comment, haha! I wear that as my regular winter jacket...it's a bit light for walking/standing around, but it's perfect on the bike, even down into single digits if you...

    Mine? WWII era Swedish. Typically referred to as an M39/58, since it was modified in the late '50s to more closely resemble the new uniforms of that period, and not waste the old stock. Mine is...
  16. Rode in my first Tweed Ride last weekend...

    There were some really cool vintage/antique bikes there! Didn't take any pictures, myself, but I saw a restored 1923 Columbia with wooden rims, the requisite high-wheeler, lots of 3-speeds...

    Worth mentioning - I don't think it's happening until summer 2016, but a section of Comm Ave is gonna be rebuilt with a separated cycletrack.

    I angled the bars up slightly yesterday morning, and it seemed to be ok all day, especially if I kept my hands farther back on the hoods. Gonna leave it like this for a while and see how it works...

    One more observation made this morning...higher tension on the wider saddle than the narrower one...I wonder if this would lead to subtle saddle discomfort on the narrower (new) saddle that'd have me...

    It's actually a noticeable difference in width...we're talking about centimeters, not millimeters, so it's an overall difference of the better part of an inch.

    I would be surprised if things are...

    I can't get my hands comfortable!

    Ok, so here's the deal. I have a Bianchi Volpe that I generally find quite comfortable....I spent practically the whole day on it a couple days ago, for example. It's a 51cm frame, 2011 model. I...

    Thanks, Tom, I was hoping you'd reply (I remembered you had a Volpe). I got the Marathons on, the 35 fit on the back fine (listed on the tire sidewall as both 700Cx35 and 37-622)...I could probably...

    I'm gonna put the Marathons on the Volpe and try those out first, since using them doesn't mean taking another bike out of commission. I'm mostly concerned about a couple longish night-time rides I...

    Don't get me wrong! The Volpe is also fender-equipped, and I do like to try to keep it nice-looking to a point as well, but that's a bike that I bought in part for its ability to handle the...

    Maybe if it didn't have aluminum fenders and other bits that I'd like to keep looking nice....
