    Actually, the coaster brake is the one part of the equation that I'm not thrilled about (my bike has one).

    I hadn't used a coaster brake in about 25 years, since I was a child thrashing on a...

    Almost 20,000 posts on the site, and you still can't see yourself as a cycling enthusiast? Why is that such a dirty word?

    For what it's worth, the only trouble I've had with valves have all...

  4. Old School Finnish Tunturi Mountain Bike

    Nice. I see Tunturi bikes all the time here in Sweden, and my daily ride is a Finnish Helkama. I never saw a Finnish bike in the USA!

    It certainly does seem consistent with the 531 Ted Williams. The headbadge looks to be the same, as well. The headlugs look to have a rim around where the headset would seat, too, which is a...

    Coz,

    I'd be concerned about the "Pac-Man" opening of the rear drive-side dropout. Until you are confident that you have that resolved, I wouldn't go through the trouble of stripping, repainting...

    Out of three of my bikes, that looks a lot better than at least two of them, and I could make a strong case for the third...

    I would polish it as is and re-assemble.

    You can "feel" the difference in "smooth" where the BSD circumference is 1.29% greater? Have you considered working for the space program?

    I've switched several bikes over from 27" to 700c rims,...
  10. Car-Light Lifestyle: Choosing A Place To Live

    Usually you would rent from the first hand contract holder for short periods of time while they're traveling. I was mostly ignored when I sent emails about these places. Or I'd go to see a place,...

    I'm actually moving from the small town where I've lived the past 5 months or so (and worked) to a smaller town with similar character along the train line here in Sweden.

    A lot of the value in the Wabi bikes is actually in the components, although I like the frames, too. For my tastes, they make the compromises that I would make and the bikes look good, too.

    The brooks I bought 6 years or so ago at a yardsale has been the most comfortable saddle for these hindquarters. I don't know the model, but I suspect it was made in the '60s. A couple years...

    I have a Canadian-built HLE Peugeot that I bought for $5 about 7 years ago. I never liked it, and it used a 15/16" (23.8 mm) seatpost, so I was sort of forced to keep the too-short, steel seatpost...

    By the time those colors were in vogue, the frame and components on that model were probably very high quality. It looks quite small, too, and people at either end of the distribution of frame sizes...

    It's not a perfectly slick tire, and I'm not taking 70 MPH descents on my 40 pound city bike, but the thick, round profile of my Schwalbe Spicers is pretty fun to lean into high-speed descents. My...

    You get a front derailleur that has the stop integrated into the design of the derailleur. I have a Suntour Cyclone like this, and there are many others. Then, you run housing between the stops.

    Did the rim have a single, clearly machined depression when you got the bike? If so, that would be the wear indicator. When you can't see or feel the depression anymore, the idea is that it's time...

    Warning to anyone with Cree headlamps

    This is precisely why, as a component manufacturer, I wouldn't want my brand as the face of the subassembly. I brought this up before, and a lot of people disagreed.
