    Some of the home work before spending a lot of $ is to figure out what aspects of the current bike are the worst fit wise. Not all lengthy riders are proportioned the same. Some have long legs and a...

    I should have added that E bikes are significantly harder of their tires for a few reasons. So much so that the Euro market has it's own tire specs for some E bikes. Andy.

    Flat tires come in all speeds of deflation. Fast, slow and in between. What do they all have in common? They all are flat tires. Unless someone let the air out on purpose the OP has a flat tire. Sure...

    Sounds like none replying have had a really tight freewheel before. One where the tool rounds off. One where the internal core's cavities for the pawls break and round off. One where you end up...

    I would be careful about how light/thin walled tubing you use, especially at the motor mounts. Unless there is a weight requirement or significant hills having a couple more pounds in the frame will...

    And I see some of the problem. You are using a lever with a poor match of leverage with that caliper's leverage. Like I said before one needs to match the lever with the caliper. Top mount levers are...

    I guess I should have first asked that the OP explain exactly what about the current brake system is not to his liking. Also That most all caliper designs are thought to be controlled by a drop bar...

    First thing to figure out is whether the frame is clear coated over the decals. If so then any removal will damage the clear coat. If clear coated then sanding is the most likely method with the...

    Brakes are pretty simple lever designs with the reach (mounting hole to rim) determining the majority of the "power" (assuming a lever is matched to the caliper. So first step is to know what the...

    I don't see a problem. Is there pad rub on the rotor on either side/ is the rotor becoming warped from the slight bending during braking? If no to both questions there is no problem with the brake....

    Since freehub's with loose balls usually don't have an adjustable bearing race and require a slight looseness to the bearing adjustment rather then risk the chance of messing up this "adjustment" on...

    I service a number of year round riders' bikes (I'm no deep winter rider myself) and the WORST time to do a complete service on the winter bike is just before the winter comes. Why? because this...

    The OP gives good reasons to have a fitting done by someone with experience, if only to guide the OP's understanding of how body positioning effects pedaling/power/balance and handling (let alone...

    QV- Thanks for including some shots.

    A few comments- can you see the SS/ST crack inside the ST? Reason I ask is that the ST looks to be very thin at the top. It's a known concern to weld stays to...

    The practice of a welded steel frame having a second heat cycle of a bronze or silver fillet added onto the joints isn't new. GT did just that years ago with some of their Excell tubed CO built bikes...

    Your answers are really judgment ones. How much wear/no wear, how well the pawls pivot and their springs work the pawls. I have rebuilt more then a few AWs where only a cleaning and lubing was needed...

    If using a bare axle (10x1) or bolt as the inserted lever a nut that can be tightened against the hanger will further support it and reduce any in the threaded hole oblonging. Andy.

    Moving the seat around is no solution for a reach issue, if you actually have a reach problem... Do you have a previous bike that worked well that you can pull fit data from? Andy.

    With the exception of Campy's 110 patterned rings pretty much all 110 rings interchange WRT the fitting on the crank arms. Various brands have offered 38T rings in a 110. Sugino comes to mind first...

    While cable ends do break or come off the cables it's not a common experience. To have this happen 3 times means either each cable had the same defect or the set up is somehow wrong.

    First is the...
