    I'm at a point where I don't see a reason to spend time to try to recover a skill that rusted away long ago.

    For most people it won't make any real difference in efficiency. You should be able to ride what feels best to you without worrying if you are reducing power output or efficiency. 170 mm cranks feel...

    Yep. This method came to me after reading Sheldon's technique. I wanted a way to do this without having to strip the bike down to the frame.

    My solution to this is to reinforce either chainstay with a length of 2x4. I rest the ends of the 2x4 on the rear dropout and the headtube and clamp the center of the 2x4 to the seat tube. The seat...

    That actually is not a 2x4. Looks like a 1x6 (real dimension 3/4" x 5 1/2") in soft pine. I'm not surprised it broke. A 2x4 will be 1 1/2" by 3 1/2". Anyways, congratulations on getting that frame...

    Hey, it's not like I'm putting a lot of miles on my Paramount. It get's ridden on sunny Sundays. I'm setting up a Trek 660 as a road bike.

    In my own experience, if you have the saddle too far forwards, your upper body is not supported by your legs but by your arms. On a couple of bikes, I moved the seat back a bit and,...

    I use short reach/short drop handlebars with upright riser stems. I like the flats of my bars to be about 2" higher than my seat and most of my bikes now have cyclocross interrupter brake levers so I...

    Actually, if you couple them with a quill to threadless stem converter, you get the advantages of both types. They are fugly, but I don't care.

    I don't care if I'm annoying someone in a vehicle and I'm pretty sure the flash mode on my Fenix BT-10 headlight is annoying. It is a brilliant flashing strobe that lights up an entire intersection...

    I rode this very bike (or rather the frame) in 1974 when I was a junior at Ohio State. It still has the Ohio State bicycle registration sticker on the seat tube. I built the bike up from the frame. I...

    I have both types of pedals on my two commuter bikes. The RMX do not have the same grip when wet that the VO pedals do. They are also heavier.

    These are known in old tool circles as eggbeater drills. They work well with a sharp bit and the more sophisticated versions have racheting mechanisms. The bottom drill is a Yankee 1530a, made by the...
