    I think it's worth remembering this is an enthusiast's forum, where most people like to tinker and mess around with their bikes. Where form and performance are more important that simple function....

    Wow. I was about to defend OP, as I completely understand where he's coming from regarding fashion. Everyone on this board is a slave to bike fashions in some way or another - we just call it 'taste'...

    A custom-built frame. One where I can choose everything like the tubing, geometry, lugs. I imagine it would be over 1000 and even though I could save up for it, there's no way I could justify...

    Can you get some clearance by adjusting where the wheel sits in the dropouts?
  5. How can you tell good steel frame-building from bad?

    I've been using Sheldon Browne's rough pricing guide to idly check up on frames that crop up on local listings, and I'm always struck by how descriptive he gets about the frames, in particular the...

    I have a colnago super 77 too! Mine is a bit beat-up, and without the original parts, but it's a wonderful bike to ride. Just out of curiousity, how much did you offer? Throwing in six bikes sounds a...

    Just out of curiousity, why do you all prefer the 400? What makes it so much better than the others?

    Clip-ons I think are best for allowing external sound. Koss KSC75 are good, also have superb sound quality.

    I began yoga by just looking at videos on youtube, and finding some poses online - there are plenty of resources. With enough trial and error you find what works for you. It's great to take a class,...

    Looks to me like you might need to straighten your back a little. I'm an office worker too, and if I don't do my regular yoga routine my posture goes to hell and I get pains in the neck too (though...

    No they're definitely not all the same. I had this exact same problem. Had to buy a new square taper cartridge. There's a little room for manoeuvre, a few mm each way, but if you have something like...

    Rather than a walmart bike - which will be as heavy as possible and probably have issues with quality control - you'd be better off getting an old road bike from cragislist and buying a flip flop hub...

    I ended up not getting it anyway as it was already sold (for €50). The fork seems damaged to me from the pics, though I probably would have still taken it just to restore it and see how it rides....

    Daccordi with Columbus Air tubing?

    Hi everyone, in my daily browsing of the local ads I came across this:

    Dacordi - Cikloberza Mali Oglasi - 2Bike.rs

    It looks pretty battered (I'm not sure about the dents on the fork, is that...

    I did the same thing when I saw a Colnago Super for only a 100 and had to buy it: 5'8'' and the bike is 58 cm too.

    I thought I'd sell it on since the typical advice on here suggests its too big,...

    Light clothes, taking it slowly, a water bottle filled with cold water every morning, and if you can, ditching the backpack for a bag that doesn't hug so tight like a messenger bag or bike pannier.

    Sounds like a great idea; easier than you'd think, and well worth it. On an old bike you may discover problems that you never knew you had, though. Stuck posts or brackets, internal rust, etc, so be...

    The BMX rider was ahead of the roadie, obviously looking to merge. There was space for one line. In that situation you let the guy merge in front of you. Squeezing the guy out while going at a...

    Oh, I missed that. I was just trying to write it down as simply as possible. I still remember when I was too scared to touch such basic things myself. I have no idea about disc brakes though.

    I would suggest maybe the following to help isolate the problem.

    On your brakes there should be a latch, or hook, that lets you loosen them. If not, you might have to unscrew them. Do that so they...

    After doing a bit more research it seems like this is a Moser Junior, made from CSS 52 Oria tubing, which is on the heavier side according to this chart.
