    I think it's legit to weigh bikes w/o pedals and cages. That would save at least a pound. You do need to weigh with bar tape, I think. :thumb: Check hot r not for tips about aligning your valve...

    I think it's the stack under the stem that has folks scratching their heads. And yes, an actual scale weight would be appropriate if weight is to be mentioned at all.

    That sounds right. Work on the shoe and the plate, if needed.

    The old Cannondale STs are like that. I think mine looks fine, they get lots of love in C&V.

    Oh Lordy, he's popped up in the cyclocross section. Whack a mole!!

    Well to be fair, the pic does look like about level saddle to bar height but with something like 60mm of spacers and a riser stem to achieve it. I think all anyone is saying is take some of the...

    I'll give the benefit of doubt and say clearly clueless. This has been going on so long I think a troll would have become bored and gone away. Having said that, seems as if all that can be said...

    I'm not sure it's really such bad advice in this case. OP isn't going to want to ride it with that tall stack of spacers and he already has a high rise stem. Maybe he should just set it up properly...

    The cost of shipping a bike to you from the US might be prohibitive.

    The thread title itself should have been enough to send this to P&R. I asked days ago but the mods apparently thought otherwise.

    You can thread the axle of a spare wheel into the hanger (remove the derailleur.) Google it.

    Well, you've already made up your mind and bought the tires.... Were you able to get the green ones? Very cool and unique.

    Please post your impressions of the Athena when you get it together. Best looking group currently available, IMO. I've been tempted to try it but concerned about the PowerTorque bb.

    Maybe you could remove the spacers and measure the stack. Put them in the freezer for awhile and measure again. This could confirm that your analysis is correct. Interesting problem!

    I don't think it would be a problem for any of the bikes you listed to give good service for 10 years. A bike designed for your weight should hold up, regardless of material. Consider also that if...

    +1 500# on any bike (2 wheels) disappointment and disaster are predictable.

    That's a good review of the Khamsins. I also like that they appear to use standard j bend spokes. Let us know how they ride when the bike is finished.

    He won't answer this. He's obviously never been a bike mechanic nor worked at a shop. He's new to cycling, may not even ride at all. I don't understand why someone would want to pretend they know...

    Dented frames are not uncommon. You haven't seen any because you are new to riding and don't ride with others. Seat tubes have been dented by over enthusiastic clamping of the FD. Top tubes are...
