    Pff, brazing or soldering... you don't even need the glue.

    Yeah sure, but you try putting all that in a simple graphic. Symbolism is shorthand by necessity.

    If you have any ideas, I'm curious.

    I'm reminded of a pretty cool story:

    A mate had an Omega Seamaster (the James Bond watch) sitting in a drawer for twenty years, because it was cactus.

    This prompted me to mention my mum's best...

    Nah, it's just a matter of time with a 7s freewheel... unless you have a 14mm axle like the cargo bikes my boss bought.

    :bang: :twitchy:

    Did you click on the pic? Are you somehow missing the fact that the chain on my 'whip' isn't a whip but a closed loop, like I described?

    This would work on Jupiter, if you...

    Hence the '30' - that's how many mm the crank spindle is.

    PF30 is just an improvement to the BB30 standard, only affecting the interface between the frame and the bearings. So frames are either...

    If you're breaking new cables you're totally doing something wrong.

    I've never snapped a cable on any of my bikes, and 'routine pre-ride inspection' is not in my language. Every so often I grab...

    I gather the correct inflation pressure is whatever it takes so that the loaded tyre is squashed by 15%.

    The square-taper BBs tend to last a lot longer than other types, but two-piece cranks are much easier to disassemble, include the spindle with one arm so you never have to think about spindle length...

    Pff to single speed - not a complete bike IMO.

    And yeah, IGH, crankcase gearbox, whatever - the point is, that may be all very well for folks who put minimal maintenance in front of all other...

    You know how many knuckles have ever been skinned because that was hard to imagine?

    Worn cogs, unused chain, shouldn't be such a surprise.

    Here's a tip - modify your chainwhip.

    IMO and IME chainwhips are wrong.

    Undo one end of the little loop, and join it onto the whip end, so you only have a large loop.

    No, it's not, they're still being made - AFAIK, as far as Shimano is concerned, square-taper is all but obsolete, with Octalink cranksets kicking in at the $40 mark.

    Also, BB length is almost...

    Belts require IGHs, therefore they can't touch a derailer drivetrain's 98% efficiency, let alone whatever inefficiency the belt has. Also, special frames.

    Did it hit the spot? Worth a laugh?

    Does it give you any ideas for suggestions?

    I'm taken with this; it'd make a cool t-shirt or coffee mug.

    You're not going to find a quality tyre for fifteen bucks.

    A quality tyre costs at least something like $50-60, probably more like $75 (AUD).

    Colour me hopeful but pessimistic.

    Let's see, it's pretty cool in that it addresses the major shortcomings of the chain drive; no derailers and an oil bath should mean epic chain life, which would...

    It's pretty much only valid for something that's been very highly engineered with an unusually low factor of safety, say if the bike weighed 3.5kg and the...
