    The top cap on should be set to the same amount of preload as an ordinary top cap. It is the responsibility of whoever adjusts the stem to make sure it is straight.
  2. You shouldn't have to loosen the top cap bolt,...

    You shouldn't have to loosen the top cap bolt, even with the proper preload you should be able to rotate the stem.

    Is it possible that the handlebar is not clamped at its center? This is purely cosmetic but it looks like the shim is upside down.

    All you need to match is the number of teeth, the number of speeds, and the bolt diameter. If you change the number of speeds, you'll have to change both pulleys at the same time to keep the cage...

    It's kinda weird. Jagwire cables are now single ended but these are made by Jagwire and are still double ended. If you cut carefully, 2 cables can be used for a road and mountain bike. I don't get...

    Novara brake cables

    I was at an REI store today and saw that their Slick Stainless Brake cables are 275cm in length and are only $4.00. The shift cables were 230cm so they should work for FDs but you still have to shell...

    I never got a good cut with a Dremel. I cut my housings with a Park CN-10 and square off the end with a Dremel grindstone.

    Just subtract your rim width from the mounting post spacing and find a matching pair value on the chart. Of course going too far off the chart will change the cable pull geometry and might...

    The lugs are blocking access to frame blocks and the down tube looks too far gone for frame blocks. And IIRC the chrome plating can make brazing hazardous.

    Too much resistance in the pivots or cable. Turning the rim sends vibrations back loosening whatever is stuck.

    I'm pretty sure that SRAM never made a 9-speed disc hub with a 130mm OLD.

    There's something wrong with your measurements. The eccentric has at least 1/2" (12.7mm) of adjustment so center to longest will be at least 6.35mm.

    For Shimano RDs, the minimal length (1" of slack on big-big) is the optimal length.

    There are not that Many High pressure tires in 559. There is a HP version of the Kenda K193 rated for 100 PSI, the standard K193 is rated for 65 PSI.

    Add me the list of people who say don't bother changing them until you need to, but when you need to the ones linked to in post #5 should be correct.

    These measurements are from memory so they're not precise.

    I'm running 35s on mine and I'd approximate having about 10mm of clearance to the unicrown. I'd say it's somewhere near 390.

    Tandems East has pads for the Arai drum (or at least their website claims that). You might get lucky and find a set at a BMX shop.

    I stand corrected. At the time they didn't have a MTB double to rebrand for road use so they made the double shifters compatible with existing road doubles.

    IIRC they go as far up as Tiagra but are non series, R4xx corresponds to 4xxx. I'm not absolutely sure but I think the only unique component is the front derailleur.

    Not really, drum brakes have an advantage in that they don't warp when overheated, let them cool down and they wok just as well as before. If you overheat a disc you'll warp the rotor.
