    I like the look of them and functionality of pulling the wheel right in place but so many times they are a little tweaked when I get a bike. But, recently, I scored this tiny hammer, about 6" long,...

    There's just a little something off about this bike. Hmmm. What could it be.

    I should have mentioned that. The drive side slowly came off and I should have taken note that the puller was giving me fits at that time. It's a cup and cone style BB so it is possible to pull the...
  9. Removing a crank arm when no threads exist

    I have not headed warnings of the Park CCP-22 crank puller and tonight, I wished I had listened. Long story short, I now have a reamed out crank barrel with only a touch of threading left. Not enough...

    I went and looked at one of these in Portland about 3 years ago. After seeing it in person I was backing away quickly. It is not an impressive frame in terms of build quality or features and as Timmy...

    Yep, nailed it with the bar tape. Wonderful pop. Brooks even, huh!? Impressive. I haven't bought/used any yet. How did you cap off the bar tape? Looks like black twine but I can't be for certain.

    What a stem. Any idea on costs? If it's anything like the custom MAP stems, it should be around ~$400.
