    Why is this different from having a bike stolen from a public rack?
  2. I'm not clear why you want to remove the...

    I'm not clear why you want to remove the cleat/clamp from the pedal. It doesn't get in the way of using them as platforms.

    That being said, I agree with others who suggest that dual-sided...

    The best I've found so far is to use an online map that has satellite or aerial imagery. This is highly dependent on having high-resolution images for the area, however, so may not be suitable in...

    The "My Ten Speeds" website has a lot of really good information about assessing the quality of older road bikes.

    It is my understanding that what you are proposing should work. I have a 105 crankset and FD from the same era (1055 groupset), and I'm successfully using it with a 9-speed cassette. This thread has...

    I'm not sure if they're doing powdercoating on existing frames, but bike builders True North Cycles have a powdercoating shop.
  7. DIY option

    I kludged an adaptor similar to the one that no1mad linked. I just grabbed some of the flat straps with holes in them from the hardware store, bent one of them, and bolted them together.

    This blog post gives a ride report from KW to Toronto, hope it will be helpful. If you're aiming for the west side of KW, I find this to be a great route from Cambridge to KW.

    Seems like it would be a good way to practise formation riding when one's riding partner wants to access their drink on the go.

    Cyclists must use the bicycle-specific infrastructure where it is available though, right? That's what they told me when I rented a bike in Montreal. I don't think that's true in most places.

    I'm interested in your perspective here as a bus driver. What is it about a cyclist passing on the left that is a problem?

    I try to avoid playing leapfrog with buses, but sometimes I know the...

    Another example along these lines is a heavy, tightly woven cotton shirt, like a rugby shirt. I find that keeps a surprising amount of wind out in dry, cool conditions. In fact, I find it too warm...

    Yeah, I plan on relacing to be sure I got it right. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't normal for things to be off so much.

    Wheel build initial tensioning problem

    I'm building my first wheel. It's a rear wheel. I got the spokes at the LBS, they measured the hub and rim for me to figure out the correct lengths. I've also confirmed their measurements using the...

    You mentioned the Keen Coronado earlier. Keen also makes some nice sandals (I have the men's Commuter II and quite like it), and the Presidio looks like the closest you can get to the Coronado, but...

    For the sake of comparison, my commute is about 22 miles one-way and consists mostly of fairly small rolling hills.



    I ride 2 or 3 days out of 5. I sometimes take the bus for most of the...

    Another good resource is The Bicycle Wheel, by Jobst Brant. I am planning to do my first wheel build soon, and I'm a lot less nervous about doing so having read the book.

    The gunk is from some tape that was on the frame. I think the intention was to plug the holes in the bottom of the BB shell. It was duct tape covered by electrical tape. I'm not looking forward to...

    I'm thinking I'll try to clean it up a bit and ride it for a while. If I really like it I might try to do a proper repaint to match the fork, assuming I can get the fork usable again. Right now...

    Okay, here are some more shots of the frame. Looks like the rear dropouts are forged and say "??EV CAMPAGNOLO".

    As for the poorly done Sprite can seatpost shim, it's a temporary fix so that I...

    Thanks Bianchigirll, I will get those other detail shots. I still fairly new to this, wasn't sure exactly what would be helpful.

    I didn't see anything stamped on the dropouts, but the frame seems...

    Frame identification help needed

    Hi all,

    I recently bought a frame from a friend at my local bike co-op. It has Brodie decals, but had a Fiori fork installed. I emailed Brodie with some photos and the serial number and they say...

    Mud flaps

    Electra also sells some nice add-on mud flaps.

    I had one that worked pretty well, until I managed to kick it into the tire as I was starting off from a light. It ended up getting pretty chewed up,...

    Another way is to lay a straightedge across the fork, so that it is resting on both tines of the fork. Then line up the bars so they are parallel to the straightedge.

    Can't claim to have thought...
