    You are over thinking this. Get out there and ride. If you have any doubts about a purchase, borrow someones road bike. Another good source before making an "investment" is craigslist.

    It's go time (and 60T doesn't have an age handicap).

    Your conjecture is two for two and I got two strikes - Only in cycling would someone say I'm big - 180lbs (on a lean, flexible 6 2" frame) which also has me maxing the 20mm (nonadjustable) offset...

    Ahh, good terminology - conical mating surface (more lucid compared to "cylinder").
    RESULT:- With a half-dozen impacts using rubber-side handle-end of a hammer, I was able to loosen the frozen inner...

    This is more a Can This Be Done project - little practicality other than to amuse and satisfy the wants of the end user. (you will fit in fine on the 41 - AKA road bike forum)

  17. Fastest way to effectively replicate a unique rubber bushing IN chain stay

    Going in a different direction, what about the Fulcrum Quattro? Just 65g heavier than the 5LG but provides a stiffer, (aero?) 35mm rim depth. (That is my current puzzlement)
