    Nothing wrong with some vestigial cable guides, I guess. I just get a bit obsessive about design detail. Even in a rat build.

    I'm going with your advice. This frame is real light and sounds tinny when tapped with a screwdriver. The steel spec is 20XX (rest of label gone). There are only a few cable guides to deal with, no...

    I was considering removing the downtube shifter bosses from a Cannondale ST400. I don't know how they are attached or what is left when they are removed. Has anyone ever done this?

    White Eno eccentric hub question

    I assume that, if the White Eno eccentric hub moves the hub center in a circle around the axle, then it could potentially position the wheel higher or lower rather than just forward or backward. This...

    Joe, Beautiful bike. I'm speculating here, but you may grab the FG as your primary ride after you get comfortable. The ride is serene and smooth and peaceful, even in traffic. That's what happened...
