    I'm running the same gearing on my All-City Macho Man Disc, 34-46:12-36 and it's great for all-terrain riding. 46:11 is PLENTY tall enough for road riding and 34:36 is low enough for trails and...

    That looks truly insane. But also brilliant.

    At the very least, I'd go w/ steel seatpost clamps. There's usually a little lip on the clamp to prevent it from sliding down the seat tube. That...

    46:11 is about 27-28 mph at 90rpm. If you're outspinning that gearing, you're either a pro or need to work on your cadence. 120rpm should be a comfortable cadence that you could spin indefinitely...

    Fixing up your mtb will probably be more expensive than buying the Thruster from Walmart, but a Trek 3700 ain't that terrible of a bike, so you'd end up with a longer lasting, more durable bike. Go...

    No shifter cables coming from the brifters, he's probably just using them as brake levers. Use what you've got on hand.

    Bikeman is legit, I've ordered a frameset from them before. That's a good price for an Eno hub, if you're looking for 135mm spacing and 36h.

    It might be lighter to do external, since you've only got cable bosses to attach to the frame instead of running a structural liner through the inside of the frame for internal cable routing.

    If you're credit card touring, I'd forgo the weight and go w/ a large Carradice saddle bag or similar rackless (Revelate for example) setup. I can pack everything I need for ultra light loaded...

    As a bonus, the duct tape will leave sticky residue all over your tire when you take it off, giving you more traction when you race your tarck bike at the velodrome.

    Mini V's really limit your tire/fender size. I wouldn't put them on a touring bike. They were great w/ <35c cx knobbies and no fenders.


    At 260lbs, plus the weight of the bike, plus your gear,...

    Bummer, mine is probably on the list. I'll have to check it when I get home today. I wonder if the replacement will be plain black; I doubt they'd do a special run of orange forks for recall...

    Yes, the mini ones use 3 Velcro straps to secure. The next size up uses a buckle strap that is sort of a pain to adjust, more like a set-and-forget adjustment. I have 2 of these, one set up for my...

    Being able to move around on the bike is nice, and won't necessarily make it slugging or slow. A 56 would also fit well, but I'm sure that 54 can be made to fit and ride wonderfully. Few people can...
