    My understanding is that they make cars so I assumed they fab a lot of parts. My high school had a fully equipped machine shop. I once cast and machined a water pump for my small block 350.

    This.

    What may end up being the simplest solution would be to machine your own hub shell using existing internals from a double sided FG/SS hub like the one pictured above. You would just need...

    Some great pics in this thread.

    So far nothing I've seen I wouldn't ride on my normal road bike. It may not be optimal but I sure as s**t ain't going 'round.

    Before this hi-larious thread gets closed it think a reiteration is warranted.

    As has been pointed out the ability to work aluminum has improved. Klien was perhaps the first to butt alloy tubing...

    I'm sure it does. As I said, the numbers that chart give will give you a very comfortable ride at the cost of performance and possibly puncture resistance as well.

    Yes, I think we all know you can crush carbon by over torquing a clamp. No dispute there.

    As to the quote from Spec it's more about covering their arse than anything else. Objective TESTS (not...

    ^^^ Yes. The threads are a pretty typical thing from Conti. Just remember to CUT or BURN and not pull these threads (just like a sweater from your Nana).

    Threads aren't peeling from the bead. It's coming from the chafer strip that wraps around the bead. Just cut them off.

    Belief? That's an opinion. I'm talking FACTS. Quantifiable FACTS based on specific tests.

    And honestly, your opinion is founded on virtually no experience and some google work. Go back to google...

    I'm sorry but you are incorrect.

    Since you linked to a Pink Bike Blog, check this video comparing alloy vs carbon. Pay particular attention to the last bit where they take the carbon frame and try...

    That's really interesting. I'd love to see that in action. There are a few things to consider, however.

    This means only tube to tube construction. This seems like a step backwards.

    My point is that those fears you have are completely baseless. There are no massive carbon failures. You can go on line and find failures of pretty much anything.

    Carbon is NOT fragile. It does...

    Carbon isn't cheaper than steel or aluminium to manufacture. Materials are more expensive and the processe requires more expensive equipment and a lot more additional labour.

    A few things:

    That website is old. The newest photo is from 2011. Also, considering how many millions of carbon bike there all around the world, right now, it isn't hard to come up with a few...

    Stupid auto correct as well as trying to post, put my shoes on and hustle the family out the door to brunch.

    But why 15% drop? What is this number based on and where did it come from? It seems to have been an arbitrary mumber pulled from someone's rump and has not meaning at all.

    I would be more inclined...

    Yes. This will become a concern going forward. This surfaced already with the Specialized SCS bikes.

    Yes, the alloy itself has evolved.

    It has improved in terms of both materials and processes for both the manufacturing of the alloy itself and methods used to draw or shape the tubes. Both of...
