    Good for you lordbikely, Nice ride. That Univega looks totally awsome. With a SA 5 it would go anywhere just fine. Deraillers suck. I would set up the Redline and give it to your friend and keep his...

    Looks like a girl size Tri bike, maybe 50 cm. Won't be good for much else.

    I haven't been able to download anything from YT for 6 months. My RealPlayer goes thru the motions, but at the end it says "cannot finish, try again". Bugger.
    Dailymotion stopped it over 2 years...

    I have the XL hub. Just loosen the brake side lock nuts and realign.
    Maybe the right lock nut needs to be tightened a hair.

    Get a new FRAME. Prolly 64cm.
    Both of you.

    The Linus is for sure a better+ more stylish bike. If you live in flatville a 3spd would do, but I would get one with a Sturmey Archer 5w. I have used that hub 5400 awesome carefree miles, with oil...

    For me, too loose is when the spokes easily move without digging into your fingers and they make a crinkle/squak sound.

    Too tight is when you are turning the nipples and they make a very high and...

    If it is a real metal on metal scraping when braking hard, then it is the disc being pushed into the bracket by the pad that moves. (cable type)
    It then needs the inside pad adjusted to be closer to...

    I'm no expert. but IMO the aluminum in those days was the same as on house windows, and NOT the same as new stuff.

    Total waste of time.

    There is likely nothing wrong with this bike's fit. She just has this girl mentality that you need to plant your feet on the road while seated. The cure is a crank forward bike. Otherwise, just learn...

    I would try using the bottom screw and a hose clamp as close to the BB as possible.
    I used 2 hose clamps on my POS China bike.
    I've also tried a HB clamp dohickie and it was a total FAIL. Unstable...

    My first thought was it went to the Maldives. It used to be a nice friendly place with Hindus, but now is a typical MUSLIM dictatorial PRISON camp still disguised as a tourist trap. This is basically...

    Oooooh K Nice Team TT movie there minnie.

    I agree that futybol is the 3rd worst lame sport after cricket and NBA dunkfests.
  16. No they don't have a team pack TT event that I...

    No they don't have a team pack TT event that I have ever seen. It's all run individually. Adding up team numbers is not the same as team group pursuit like at the track. A bunch of guys have won 5 in...

    Since the whole setup is based on teams, Why don't they have team a Time Trial day ?? Same as in the Olympic track team events. Say 5 or 6 of the 8 riders count at the finish line. That would look...

    Easy Question.... NONE of them hybrids.
    700 bucks or less = Windsor Tourist.

    I have to agree, that's why I never really watched it much. They did finally come to my back yard in Alberta this year, so I went to see the sprint and one spot of a stage. The Tour has been a...

    Mine went 9,000 miles on a Spez hybrid with not a lot of mucky use. I also changed 1 rotor. It was thinning and wearing on the edge because the inside pad kept moving out of adjustment, causing the...

    It wouldn't hurt to get one with a 3spd IGH hub. Much more efficient with or against the wind.
    SS is basically only good from 10 to 20 mph.

    I also got a SA dyno last year and first used my old filament lights from my old Ralieghs. Only lasted a few rides until the front one jiggled to death and the tail fried right after. Then I got 4 of...

    15 mm also fits pedals BTW A stubby one will fit in a pocket fine.

    Front skewers are 5 mm hex, I also put those on my new bikes before I take delivery.

    Ok Thanks
    I did what Cbad said. The other way is rather cumbersome.
    Sometime last year the default was changed I gather.
