    My "shoulder angle" changes all the time with my position -- it can be ~90 degrees when I'm dodging a headwind in the drops, but it's often not. "Shoulder angle" sounds like one of those BS metrics...

    Just remember: if the frame can't be made to fit you, it won't be a "good deal" at any price. If you don't *know* it'll work out, it's better to buy a whole bike that you can try out.

    Suspicious decals are suspicious. I wonder if we'll ever hear from the OP again.

    At the risk of sounding flip, do you brake hard, a lot? With experience comes the ability to look further ahead and anticipate when you can just coast down or actually apply the brakes. Sometimes...

    Ooh, I love this topic! I use mineral spirits, and reuse it many times, letting the grit and sludge settle out in the storage jars. :thumb:

    What's "correct" probably depends on your specific bike. Alf Engers was using 24H wheels in the 1970s, for what that's worth.

    I zip it a little, but it's not necessary. They do hold up well, even if you ride around with it on. To store it, I shake off any water, fold it on itself a couple times, then stuff it inside the...

    The Sprint technically has a max cog size of 26T -- you may be able to push that and run a 14-28 Shimano freewheel ($15). 6-speed would mean no goofing with the frame, so that would get my vote. ...

    We can ask Russia or China if we can tag along on one of their trips, that's all we can do at this point. :p

    It doesn't matter how much know-how and desire we have -- we could not send a person into space tomorrow. That's the only definition of "ability" that counts here.

    In my experience, the Brooks saddles that were "for me" felt good right away, and the one that wasn't, never did, despite Proofide and 1000+ miles.
