    Yeah, but the person even threaded it on a bar to verify, but they didn't put it on far enough for the threading to see that it didn't match, and insisted it couldn't possibly be 26 :P

    Would I...

    axle nut - the horror!

    So because one problem taken care of seems to inevitably mean another will soon follow, I find myself miraculously alive after the morning commute.

    Stopped at a red, I glance down and notice that...

    Figured there might be a way to measure it out. Big to big, but not on the derailleur, correct? Only thing I can see is that it *might* end up a little loose that way, but I highly doubt I'll even...

    Got the crankset last night, went on without problems, ~10 minutes to get it all going - still need to properly calibrate the front derailleur though. Chain's really tight now though, so I'll need a...

    I just changed my crankset, my new one is bigger, about a dozen more teeth. Went on without a problem, but mine's currently looking a bit tighter than yours - in fact riding it this morning for the...

    I'm sure the pedal is removable, but I'd guarantee it'd take the aluminum threads with it. I'm certain it's completely bonded.
    It's the left side (although both are seized), and I'm turning it the...

    Everything. Heat, hammer, leverage...nothing. I'm betting it wasn't lubricated when built.

    My bike's a dept store bike, it's a beater just to get to/from work. Pretty sure it's square based on...

    awesome, thanks. doesn't sound like it really makes a whole lot of different though, i'll go big since i'm tall :P

    Thanks all, I'll give the hammer a go first after a few days of penetrating oil

    With regard to the winter - inside's not an option, I rent a basement apartment and it's already cramped. Cold's...

    winter storage, pedal wrench

    Evenin' all.

    So I cracked a pedal, but I can't get the thing off. All I have is a slide wrench and it doesn't give me the leverage I need, it's kinda rusty (It's the right pedal, so I'm going...
  14. disc brakes - replace the rotor when replacing the calipers?

    So I'm really tempting fate right now, no back brake (tore a pad off), 2 broken spokes + 1 loose on the back wheel, hoping it'll last another month before I need to replace the wheel. Trying to put...

    Thanks. It seems to have broken right at the rim, I'll post a pic in the morning. Its a department store bike, so I wouldn't assume much care was taken during assembly. I'd hate to have to replace...

    So yeah... Airing up my tire on the weekend, when I noticed a broken spoke. Strangely, the spoke and nut look fine, looks more like the nipple broke. Spoke is just sitting loose in the rim. Simple...

    That's unfortunate, sorry to hear it!

    Up here, people leave their bikes unlocked when going into stores all the time, I don't think I've ever seen a locked bike other than my own when I'm out. ...

    If only it were 10-20 cars backed up, it's usually more, and on Friday it's insane. I've seen it backed up solid then entire length of my trip!

    That's what I'm worried about, if I'm taking up too...

    That's really the big question - there's no dedicated lane, but the lanes were widened for cyclists, with that little dude on a bike stamped all over the road, so is that sufficient to assume it's...

    What do you mean by filtering? I don't pass cars in the intersection, I'm not nearly fast enough, I generally just keep moving forward while they are stopped. There's plenty of room on the sides,...

    I'd love one. I get strange attacks of weakness when I ride sometimes, usually about once a trip. This would help compensate, but an 800$ part on a $300 bike doesn't make sense... that, and it...
