    I, like many others, say CL is your best bet to get something quality, since you're not going to get any kind of good new road bike for $100-$200. Perhaps an OK single speed, if that suits you. I...

    I did my first century o a franken mountain bike with slicks and platform pedals. Definitely doable.

    Thanks for the replies everyone, certainly food for thought. Heck, if I wasn't a college student on a budget I'd be inclined to buy a nice set of panniers and be done with it, but alas I don't have...

    I had completely forgotten about Nashbar as a source for this kind of thing. The capacity looks great too. I suppose these also qualify as Chinese panniers too :D, glad to hear you've had no issues...
  6. Oh no, another pannier thread! anything wrong with the cheap Chinese panniers?

    Hi all,

    Hoping some of you experienced tourers/loaded commuters can help me out. I recently picked up a Cannondale ST400 to use as a commuter, and am now looking at a set of rear panniers so I...

    Well, I've been doing a bit of research into the old Suntour index stuff after I bought my new commuter recently, and believe the Cyclone was the third best offering from Suntour during that period....

    Generally yes (given that your bike is 8 speed), but the cost will depend on your drivetrain specifics. Could you provide info on what it says on the derailleurs, perhaps? That or the name of the...

    But what it will do is protect the material underneath it from corrosion for some time.

    WOW. That is some material failure right there, wonder if it was just improperly cast or tempered or what. Check your PMs (can people with <50 posts receive them?)

    Definitely worth the asking price, I see these regularly on my local CL for $150. My riding partner started on one and it's been his backup cyclocross and child hauler bike more recently. In the 3...

    Then you understand the pain of searching for a frame in our size! I waited a good month and a half with no hits until I decided it might be a good idea to post a WTB ad. Glad I did!

    Nope, 48cm (technically 19" by the 1990 brochure). Ah, the adventures of stumpy-legs-long-torso-man :D I was ever so excited when the fella selling it replied to my CL ad

    Dunno about any standard, but for me it differs depending on the type. My road bike with brifters has them darn near flat, as though they are extensions of the top of the bar. When I was setting up...

    Awesome, thanks guys! I'll certainly look into the levers you mentioned. Would the Cane Creek ones be the SCR-5?
