    Why are all the cool 58cm frames out on the east coast!??

    You'd be surprised what you can get out of a short cage derailleur with a half-step setup. Not completely apples to apples, but I am running a short cage tri-color RD with an 11-34 7s cassette and a...

    That is a great list, we should continue it. I see that there was a posting of it in General Cycling way back when, but I think one must be in the right frame of mind to understand the list. Bit I...

    Elliot Bay has closed, but Bob Freeman might still be willing to do drillings to convert your crank into a triple... if you don't mind drilling your crank. Too bad jonwvara at red clover doesn't...

    Gotta be a bit more specific about your bits. Wheel set, check. Drilling? Offset? Box? Aero? Long reach brakes? Length? Style?

    This works. I had an old 26" wheel that I found in our alley. I unlaced the POS hub and made 9 dogleg spokes. I laced them to the rim (36h, just like the hub) and inserted them into the drive-side...

    You're right, not many show up. They were a licensed version of the 1988 PP 75 Competition model. The only difference was the grey color (I have the Looks on black).

    Now that's an interesting data point: Campy made a version of the '93-'94 Look MP-90 "mountain pedal." That's only the second pair I've ever seen. I got mine on super close out. (They only sold for...

    Read my above post. Arc can apply to both the cleat and the pedal. The system that is pedal-specific is called "Free Arc" and they have four different positions of "float": 0, 3, 6, and 9 degrees. ...

    That's a creative guess! In English perhaps, but in French it would be CAR for le contrôle actif de rétention. And it's not really "active" in that it doesn't respond as you pedal.

    Perhaps...

    Before Shimano came up with their own design, they did license the Look design starting in 1991. I have a PD-6402 (Tri-color era 600) pair and at least one pair of PD-7401 (Dura Ace) pedals from the...

    Are you perhaps thinking of Delta vs Keo? The two cleats look similar, but are incompatible. There are "fixed" cleats (black - 0 rotation) and "Arc" cleats (red - 9 deg rotation) in both Delta and...

    Not sure about the round ones.

    Check out some old Look catalogs (use Google Translate to read the French). Unfortunately the first one only goes back to 1987. If anyone happens to have earlier...

    Lots of great advice here. You can estimate tire spacing - one of the early 650b conversion links has a great way of showing you how before you even invest in anything.

    My suggestion is to look...

    Now that's just brilliant! :lol: Clips on a clipless pedal. I've been trying to figure out how to French some clips onto my shoe+clear so I can fake out the "Heroic police@ of the Cino, but this...

    I hope your butt likes that saddle more than my wife did, Drillium Dude. The first thing that came off her Kona Jake was that saddle, to be replaced by a women's anatomic saddle (that she loves). ...

    I've heard it'll work. At least I know that "carbon" glue works on aluminum. :)

    I'll second the vote for touching up paint and not worrying about putting "the first scratch" on it. I've touched up a bike in better shape and it is a great 5-footer (looks good from 5 feet away)....
