    I understand what a rivnut is and how it works. I am not interested in drilling holes in my frame.

    As I mentioned before, my bike does not have the rivnut in the seat stay.

    I read your post but I was a little confused, it sounded like you drilled holes in the frame.

    I have used roll charts many times for enduros but never for cycling. I don't see any reason it shouldn't work, seems like a good idea actually.

    Do you refer the 132 or 177? What are the reasons? I am trying to justify buying a 26mm stem just to try the noodle. All my other bars and stems are 25.4.

    I am running a 40/52 on one of my bikes with no shifting issues so I don't think a 39 would cause a problem. Bikes of that era always seem to be geared for going down hills, not up.
