    Then I'd be worried about hitting them with my legs!

    On a related note - I'm building up a bike that has no cable braze-ons on the top tube at all, and I'm wondering if there's any elegant way to set it up so that the bike is still easy to shoulder. ...

  4. Recommend a fast-rolling, comfortable 35+ mm road-oriented tire?

    I'm rebuilding a Shogun 300, and have found myself being given a bunch of higher-end parts for the build, so I've decided to make this more of a go-fast type bike. Part of the plan is to sort of make...

    Yeah, I spent quite a bit of time on it, actually!

    dddd - I tried your suggestion, and it seems to've helped, although it wasn't quite as effective or immediate as I'd hoped. I think it's good enough, though...certainly much better than it was.
  7. Origin8/Formula hub dimensions for wheelset build

    I just ordered a pair of Formula hubs, which appear to be unbranded versions of the Origin8 RD1100 hubs. Does anyone have the dimensions necessary to determine spoke length? Alternatively, has...

    The OP is most likely looking for an in-line/cross/interrupter lever. I've seen them in 22.2mm, 23.8mm, 26mm, and 31.8mm, so that they can be mounted on either the "grip" area, or on the clamping...

    Any specific oil you'd recommend? I have easy access to Triflow, and I was figuring I'd give the shifter a thorough coating of T9 once I've got everything moving happily.

  12. Modify Tektro R539 for slightly more reach?

    Is this a horrible idea? I'm working on a frame-up rebuild of an old Shogun road bike, and I'm converting to 700C wheels and dual-pivot brakes. In the rear, I have to have the pads pretty much at...

    Recommend a seatpost?

    I'm looking for a 26.4mm seatpost that's more finely adjustable than the typical Laprade style, but the only thing I know of that meets the criteria is a zero-setback two-bolt post. While I don't...
  14. Question about repairing Shimano RSX 7-speed STI shifters

    Not sure if this is more appropriate here or in the Mechanics subforum, but I'm trying to resurrect a pair of RSX 7-speed shifters that a friend gave me. The left-hand one was pretty easy to make...

    It's actually the shop where I work as a mechanic, not an apartment...but it is sort of in the basement of a house!

    I store all of my bikes inside. This one is primarily planned to be more of a...

    It turned out that the frame was actually in overall great shape and cleaned up nicely. I'm still looking for a few parts, but I started installing what I had, and here's how it looks right now:

    Shogun 300 Rebuild

    A number of you probably saw this thread: http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vintage/1044226-shogun-400-unusual-geometry.html

    I ended up being given a Shogun 300 for free, the same size as the 400...

    I wasn't trying to be rude, it just doesn't make sense to me. I don't know offhand, and am not in a convenient place to measure. I typically wear pants with a 30" inseam, but I ride with rather...

    Why does "without shoes" matter, if I'm not riding barefoot? I have no issue with the 170s, and I do remember feeling that the crankset on my old Raleigh Sports felt short, and that was closer to...

    That video focuses mostly on performance - I'm much more interested in noticeable differences in fit, because I have 4 bikes with the same crank length that are set up to fit more-or-less the same,...
  21. How much am I likely to notice 2.5mm difference in crankset length between bikes?

    To clarify the posting title: I'm 5'6"ish, and normally ride 170mm cranksets. I have a build I'm planning with a frame I've been offered for free, and some other parts I've been given by other...

    I've been offered a similarly-sized Shogun 300 for a better price - gonna check it out to confirm the size, but may go for that, since I'm trying not to spend much on this build. I think I read...
