    In my opinion this is the best mirror available and is so durable it will last for many years. It fits both straight and drop handlebars and I've found it indispensable. The Mirrycle mirror.

    Thank you, but having re-read the thread I find that Downtube first asserts that "....a solid majority (of hubs) are overtightened at the factory."

    In over forty years of working with bikes I've yet to find an LBS that adjusts hub cones as part of new bike preparation and I know that given the time pressure I certainly didn't.

    That's impressive but I did the same a week ago.


    As soon as I get out of traction I'm going to do it again.

    A chap in his eighties took part in the last 100 mile ride we did which was organised by my Cycling Club. Not that I could do that distance now mind you as it was quite a few years ago.

    Exactly right. I do have a long body but the stem was just a bit long. Now changed the Nitto Technomic for a Cinnelli 1A which is 10 mm shorter.

    To be truthful the bike's too good for me as I'm...

    Ah.....but the 105 FD is a braze-on and could not drop far enough to meet the large ring. That's just another part of the problem.
