    You're right, there is a nut. The adjustment at the top is quite loose. And you're also right, that it probably can't be cut off due to the mechanism. I didn't get any instructions... I'll talk to...

    Update, I had to go to the LBS with the existing good nut and they had six kinds of threads that all looked exactly the same but had small differences for bike wheel axels. They IDed mine and ordered...

    Nashbar spring seatpost questions

    Hi, I got a 350 x 26.0 spring seatpost for my bike to ease my back pain a bit. There was no length stamped on my stock seatpost so I just figured 350 would work--turns out it's probably 50 mm more...

    I wondered about that but wasn't sure what to do. I have simply used its soft travel case as a dampening layer directly beneath it when its lashed to the rack.

    Guys, I ended up getting a JBL flip and tying it down to the rear rack when needed. Playback is Bluetooth. Really liking it.

    Bear spray/foam is sounding good.

    The friend that got brought down by the pit bull had some nasty bite marks. Personally I am not worried about the well being of any dogs that chase after me, I am...

    Cyclists' self defense

    Dogs and crooks, as well as raging drivers, come to mind as physical threats to the cyclist that don't necessarily involve a bike wreck. I have a friend who was taken off his bike while going 17 mph...

    Should I get this tandem?

    I was offered $450 ("a good deal") for a Schwinn Deluxe Twinn. Seems to be working pretty well, finish is a bit rusty but not awful (Kool Lemon). This would be for my wife and I. I'm 5'10'' and an...

    I hadn't considered something like that. Good idea. I guess they could connect to the rear rack by a net or some tie-downs.

    Good audio output for rear rack?

    I go on the Denver Cruiser Ride all the time and lately I've been wanting to play some of my own tunes, not off of a PA or anything like some of the riders tow around but a fairly basic...

    More stuff to carry. No thanks.



    I'm a writer/researcher as part of my job description--it goes with my everywhere I might work.
  13. Tired of the sweaty backpack look... need help

    I commute to work daily and it's getting to the point that every day I have a big sweat mark for the first 15 minutes at work due to my backpack, which houses my laptop and some tools. My bike is a...

    It's not as if riding a bike is free but it is still ultimately much cheaper than driving and maintaining a car the majority of the time, unless you are just constantly rushing to the bike shop for...

    Ran into this thread by chance and thought I'd zombie it just to say, I've been riding my 56 cm black Oxford for something like 4 or 5 thousand miles now and with regular maintenance it has done...

    They are both QR, but since I lock through the rear I am more concerned about the front. Jeff Wills probably has the best advice for this problem.

    I failed to get pics in my excitement but I basically just flipped the C-clamp to the original in-front-of-bolt position and wedged a flathead screwdriver on the other side to pry it open... used...

    This thread has been enlightening so far... thanks all! I will try to get things adjusted more properly tonight, pics forthcoming.

    Thanks guys. Regarding security, I tend to lock through wheels anyway but it's a pain to lock through *both*, which is why I dislike the relative "convenience" a QR presents to a thief. Especially...

    It worked for a TDF winner so it should work for me as a commuter? You can PM me if you want to explain more without derailing the thread.

    Okay, so maybe I oriented the loop wrong. Otherwise though I really don't see any way to rearrange the parts that wouldn't be incorrect (i.e. the way the last guy did it).

    Okay so after putting it together more like the photo above I felt much more confident about its ability to hold the pitch at tension, but now the diameter is too small for the post. Before you jump...

    Should I ditch the quick release nuts in favor of something more secure?
