    Another vote for fixing it up and then giving it away or selling it cheap - it may not be an appealing road bike for spirited riding, but there are plenty of people for whom getting a bike, any bike,...

    In that case I'd start by modernizing the bike most likely to be selected for a fast group ride, or the one you pick first when going fast is a priority. Or all other things being equal, you might...

    Another vote in favor of both Velomine wheels (I got an Open Pro/Ultegra set from them a few years back - very nice, needed a little tweaking to achieve perfect spoke tension, but the initial build...

    Yes. With two exceptions (8-sp Dura Ace, and Dyna-Sis from the past few years) all Shimano rear derailers from the indexing era are interchangeably compatible as long as they're designed for the same...

    I have ridden both extensively, currently have three bikes with P-R tires, two with 23mm VMs. They're very different, the VM is a narrow road tire that I describe as being very similar to a GP4000...

    I regularly get a snippet of a song in Japanese that includes the line ~mawaru, mawaru recordo~ (lit. "spinning, spinning record") stuck in my head whenever I'm cruising on my Campy-equipped bike,...
  10. Shimano Derailleur Parallelogram Disassembly: Possible?

    I have a perfectly good old Ultegra rear mech (rd-6500) I want to use - works fine but the knuckles and outer plate of the parallelogram are scraped up and ugly. I'd like to tear the derailer apart...

    Another vote for model paint: just get a purple that's a little darker and some white paint, mix them together until you make a perfect match.

    I'm uncomfortable with the idea of telling anyone how they ought to manage their money, with the assumptions and judgement that implies, but I do think it's fair to say that it's a tragedy that...

    Thread is right on - I will definitely take the icy slide with lots of padding. Admittedly I've failed to learn from past mistakes, but I have crashed hard at least 5 times in the past few years...
