    Manufacturing a custom touring handlebar

    Hi,
    I've had an S&S bike for over 6 years now. About 3 years ago I switched from drop bars to a horn bar with mtb bar ends configuration. The main motivation was to make the bike easier to pack into...

    Just sad that there is yet another shifter ratio. As to why I want to go 10sp: 11-36 cassettes, can't do that in 9sp. I'd happily stick to 9sp otherwise. That and my drivetrain is pretty dead...

    That is disappointing. I was hoping to switch to a shadow derailleur + 11-36 cassette. I guess I'll have to mix&match 3 groupsets to make it work. 10speed 7600 barshifters, 9speed shadow + 10speed...

    10speed mtb + what durace shifter?

    I'd like to run new shimano 10speed drivetrain with a durace barend shifter(in index mode). Does 10sp mtb use 7900-style cable pull ratio or will it work with 7800 shifters instead(or both?)

    OS stem with lots of stack height

    Hi,
    I'm trying to reduce the amount of flex on a bike's frontend. It has a carbon steerer and a few spacers under the stem. Could anyone recommend a stem with lots of stack height?

    Any idea where you can buy such bars? Do you know if the bar in the picture is aluminum? Mine is steel.

    Alternatively it could be using split drop bars that come on $100 walmart road bikes. That's what I did.

    Actually you may want to get a better seatpost. I had the same problems. I'd break all kinds of saddles within a year due to having them as far back as I need to be comfortable with my long legs.

    I don't have any photos or concrete plans. I'd recommend that you get the 3speed variant for $450-500ish unless you love tricky projects. They are a bit hard to find but should work. Otherwise if you...

    I wasn't aware 700C Dahons were still being made. I think ritchey breakaway is the same bike and from what I've read the frame isn't as stiff as S&S and the big is actually over airline limit.

  22. threaded quil fork -> normal fork + stem?

    I have an aluminum frame with a quill stem and a threaded headset. When I upgrade the fork, can I go with an unthreaded steerer if I replace the stem/headset? Will the frame take a normal headset?
