The bike is a 1971 Triumph and obe checked that it can in fact fit a 9mm axle. I don't know how I'm bending a front axle either. Te first time i recalled a large pothole that may have been the...
Good point. I was just talking with a friend who says he has a 9x1 solid axle. I have a 9x1 qr hub I can take the cones and locknuts from. Thanks for being honest though!
another issue I wanted to bring up is how well the cones will fit since most 3/8"x26tpi cones are made for rear 1/4" bearings. How well will they fit with front 3/16" bearings?
The front hub on my fixie is a Suzue sil-sp track hub. It's the lowest end of Suzue hubs, so the axle is also low end, with 5/16"x26tpi threading. I want to convert it to a 3/8x26 axle for strength....
A little debate me and a coworker have been having. Should you grease the headset cups for press fitting or should you leave them dry? I've never done it, and haven't had problems, and my coworker...
it was blue and white. I stripped the paint off so right now it's just bare metal until I can get it powder coated. got it for free because the seatpost was siezed. I got it out fairly easily though,...
Can anyone direct me to a spec sheet for an 89 specialized rockhopper comp? frame
specs such as tube lengths, angles, head tube diameter, and the like.
Shoulda seen that coming.
I clean mine with simple green and a rag/brush. I clean mine waaaaaayy too often so it never gets too gunky at all.
I recently switched computers going from a Bontrager Trip 1 to a Cateye Enduro 2, in an effort to clean up the dashboard. I had nearly 2500 miles logged on the Trip 1 and I'd like to enter that into...
Giant Doofus, I've got to say your username fits well for how I feel when I assume drivers are going to do something.
I've got a SR Super Custom Crankset (originally 28/42/50) and switched it to 28/42. A UN-55 bottom bracket, a drop bar and levers, the original brakes, and the wheelset is from another rockhopper...
How many valve extensioners did you need for that rear wheel?
Hills are a necessary evil to get stronger! To me, anything longer than 80 miles is long.
IMO, it's for reliability and ease of use. There's no shifting to fine tune every few months, longer chain life (no wear from side to side movement), and less of a chance that something goes wrong. ...
Trying to identify whose logo this is for a friend but I haven't had any luck so far. Can you guys help? The frame was painted over and has no decals so we just have to go off of this really....
You won't get faster acceleration with a smaller freewheel. How many teeth are on the chainring?
Faster cadence is good imo but but it should not be too high. Faster cadence builds up your quads!...
^^^^what gearing do you have set up on that?^^^^
I'm building up a single speed commuter bike over the next few weeks and I'm in need of something to give me a few ideas. I'm building it from a 1989 specialized rockhopper frame and parts from my...
Building up a single speed mountain bike from a 198? Miyata Terra Runner frame. Sorry for the shoddy pic, I'll try to get...
Your chain looks a link or two too long.
I agree with picture #1 . #2 is definitely too long.
I have SKS plastic fenders and they don't rattle or dent and do the job. I took them off recently, considering how often it rains here in Arizona.
