    I got a Shimano 105 Flight Deck triple brifter (on its own, no right-hand lever) at a swap a couple days ago, for stupidly cheap. Gonna try this out. If it works, though, a new issue arises: what...

    From what I've been able to find online, this appears to be one of the Bontrager models. Does anyone know if it's based on any other SSM model, or what else is out there that's similar and...

    Which Selle San Marco saddle do I have?

    I got a Raleigh One Way in a trade recently, and it has a non-original saddle. I generally find it comfortable, but the cover makes annoying squeaky sounds and it's a bit torn up, so I've been...

    I shift pretty frequently. This bike is set up so that the direct drive (middle) gear is how I like a single-speed to be geared, which is about halfway between my two most-used gears on my Volpe. By...

    I read a thread on another forum where a few people were talking about routing the cables that way and not having problems...it's just so frustrating that there's no convenient way to have the...

    Has anyone here routed the cable with a bar-end shifter under the tape all the way to the stem? Any issues with doing it that way? I'm not crazy about the idea of having a gap in the tape on what's...

    Even if I had the money and space, that wouldn't solve the problem!
  9. I want to convert my 3-speed to drop bars - let's talk shifters!

    I have a franken-3-speed built on a Panasonic Sport 500 frame, with a Sturmey-Archer AW hub.

  10. Horizontal top tube - which fit compromise would you rather make?

    Frame with correct TT length combined with very tall stem to get bars to the right height (slightly below saddle), or frame with too long of a TT, and a short-reach stem (~60mm)?

    Here's the...

    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...

    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 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...
  21. 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...

    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...
