    NO. More specifically, #10-32 is easier to find, and almost fits, but won't hold properly can will likely damage threads.[/QUOTE]

    The thread pitches are within a few ten thousandths of an inch....

    I'm running low on Chain-L but don't think I'll have time to make it to the expo this weekend. Remind me next year!

    I did some more reading and the clearance issue seems to only affect Hollowtech II double cranks. The OP should have used a 108mm bottom bracket and likely would have been fine.
  4. I'm not sure why the OP ever had an issue with...

    I'm not sure why the OP ever had an issue with clearance for the crank arms. The Nashbar frame is a 130mm frame so it should work fine with a road crankset and no special spacing for the bottom...
  5. Ramps and pins aren't as needed for a 12 tooth...

    Ramps and pins aren't as needed for a 12 tooth jump as they are for 16 but if you can get a 50/34 or a 46/36 for the same price, your total cost will be a lost less buying the 46/36. Inner rings can...

    I looked up that Truvativ crank and it uses steel chainrings which should last at least as long as a really good aluminum chainring. If it isn't skipping and you aren't getting chain suck, it should...

    I forgot about Ashtabula cranks. They might outsell square taper there but it could be closer than you think. While one piece cranks are very prevalent on cruisers and BMX bikes, all those department...

    Replaced where? Certainly not on the majority of bikes. Department stores sell far more bikes than enthusiast bike shops and those bikes are likely all square taper.

    Ride with the new chain for a few more days and see how things go. I bet it smooths out. I've had the "crunching" feeling from replacing chains, especially when swapping cassettes at the same time....

    That's an odd statement. Perhaps you meant "old tech". Much like 8 speed STI (which contrary to popular belief, is not obsolete either).

    Unless you meant something other than this definition of...

    In my experience, 8 and 9 speed links will come apart by hand while 10 speed need the pliers. I remember thinking something was wrong when I first installed a 10 speed link because it was so tight.

    There are three options then:

    1. You and your mechanic are both adjusting things incorrectly.
    2. There is a mechanical fault in the system.
    3. You are shifting improperly.

    Have you tried...

    Definitely no. Campy has always used a 135mm BCD for their chainrings so there's zero chance of things lining up, regardless of other oddball design details that might (and likely are) incorporated...

    This could be an adjustment issue and/or bad shifting habits. Tough to say without looking at it but I'm highly doubtful that it can't be easily corrected with some simple adjustments and/or some...

    Given your inexperience with brakes, I'm not sure I trust you to know what "abnormal pressure" is for a front shift. Rear shifts take far less effort than front and also can be accomplished under...

    Those pliers cost $14. For that price, unless I own a single tool already that does the same job I am buying and using the right tool every time even if it is only once a year (note that I use mine...

    What will likely make this not work is that Shimano has a habit of using offset teeth (meaning that the teeth are not centered on the mounting tabs when viewed from the side) on its chainrings. Most...

    You can buy them, but budget at least an extra $75 for a Shimano freehub like this:...

    Found my single toe clip. It is a size medium actually and now that I have it in hand, it appears a bit different where it mounts to the pedal. If I am seeing things clearly your clip mounts with...

    Take a look (it is printed somewhere on the clip but I cannot remember where) and get some more pictures to confirm the mounting arrangement. I'll check on mine when I get home from work.

    Don't bother. There's no way you are going to JB Weld your front derailler back together. There simply isn't enough contact area to make a sufficiently strong bond.

    What size? I bought a bike with a pair of those pedals years ago (I'll need a few more pictures to confirm) and of course, one was broken. I bought a replacement pair and used them both but kept the...

    I've never checked but I would be surprised to find that spring as any other material than stainless steel given its exposure to the elements. My bet is that the grease is there to lower the friction...
