    I was just thinking the other day that this would really suck if it were cold and dark out. I am a wuss when it comes to cold hands and fingers. Maybe the strategy would be to lock the bike up and...

    Some pictures of my Cannondale SR600. I bought the bike from a member here a few years ago. I changed the handlebar/stem setup to get a more upright riding geometry. I'm also running Ruffy Tuffy 28mm...

  4. Easy Off Oven Cleaner - Is it safe on parts?

    I was wondering if using Easy Off Oven Cleaner is safe for cleaning components such as cranks, chainrings, and derailleurs. Will this stuff mess up the finish/paint of a frame?

    Thanks

    Try your community bike co op. You might have luck finding the part there. Your profile says that you live in the DC area so I looked up a link to community bike shops in your area.

  7. DuraAce down-tube front derailleur shifter is ghost shifting / won't stay

    I recently setup a new build that has DuraAce down tube shifters and Ultegra derailleurs front and rear. The front der is a triple. When the front shifter cable has tension on it (when the bike is in...

    This was a brand new frame. I read and watched a lot of tutorials about facing bottom brackets but didn't think about the fact that my bottom bracket only had one cup face. Inexperience I guess....
  9. Faced bottom bracket shell now exposed. Do I seal it?

    I am currently building up a Bob Jackson touring bike. I gave the frame the full treatment because it deserved it - faced the headset, bottom bracket, and also chased the threads. I installed a...

  11. How did you get all of your tools, tool kit or slowly accumulate?

    I enjoy going to the local bicycle co-op to work on my bike - it is a great experience. More frequently, I have been wishing that I had my own repair stand and a full set of tools. For all of you...

    Coluber,

    Thank you for the informative post. I've never used a front rando bag before and now I have a better understanding of their design. I like the idea of not having to use a decaleur because...

    I've looked at the Acorn Bag and it looks nice. Is it really only the cinch cords, which connect to the drops that keep it stable without a decaleur? If so, then wouldn't any bag work with the same...

    Thanks for the info so far. So it seems that triple-izers are perhaps harder to find than triple crank sets themselves thus being counter productive to find a double and a triple-izer instead of just...

    Triple-izer for Campagnolo Cranks

    I recently posted a thread asking for advice on classic Road triple (52/42/30) cranksets, and I received some good suggestions. It seems like vintage doubles are more abundant than road triples. Who...

    Thanks for the very informative reply! I live in a very hilly/mountainous area so I'm shooting for a 45mm chainline.

    I've been eyeing a Sugino XD600 but I'd have to spend some money to switch out the chain rings. 52t 110BCD rings aren't cheap and are not readily available unfortunately. Why do you like 110/74?
