    The only thing I did recently was to swap stems for a longer one with a bit of rise (actually the original stem it came with) and throw on an 11-30 8s cassette to match the 8s brifters. Amazing what...

    @WhereIsWaldo, check bike co-ops or university bike shops, they often have extras. I found a chrome Miyata fork in one town a week ago, but had no use for it so passed. Take your fork with you to...

    Thank goodness you removed that ugly crank - I just can't abide the looks of those Hollowtech cranks (even though they are dead easy to install/remove). I hope you saved those SLR brake levers and...

    Nice! Are you making a 1x setup? I did the same but left all the chainrings on. Technicall I can still use them, I just have to stop and shift.

    My FIL had his old plastic spring covers wear out. I simply replaced the brakes with some spare linear pulls. I can't imagine there are replacements for them. When they start to crack, spring tension...

    Coming along nicely! It seems odd that the new cables are not long enough. I would think an LBS would have some tandem cables. I had to get some for an extra-cycle project. That looks like a large...

    Criminy!! I thought I got a good deal when I paid $300 for a well worn RB-1. Go post in the "official bridgestone" thread, you'll see there is a bit of a cult following. How could anyone pass that...

    I haven't read Bicycle Gearing, but they way I understood half-step gearing is simply that the target step in chainrings is half the target steps in the sprockets. My chainrings dictated a step of...
