    Since it's a touring bike, why not bring one more little bungee cord to tie the back of the wheel to the downtube?

    Ah, that makes sense. I was just curious -- no judgment at all from me about TTing your commute. :thumb:

    I don't have any strong feelings on the looks, but for some people, they don't look enough like the originals.

    Okay, fine. So the Shimano/SRAM/Campy hub standards are now close enough to be compatible. For a couple of decades this wasn't the case. Now tell me which disc brake standard will work for all...

    Did you have a question that wasn't answered in the thread, or by searching? By all means, go try some rubber cement and report back on how well it works.

    I certainly like 7-speed, and with a cassette hub (I live in Shimano-Land and can't speak to how well Campy or Simplex handle 7-speed ;)) there aren't any tradeoffs that I can name versus 6-speed. ...

    REMA still makes tire patch glue and it works great. Why bump an old thread to add no info and "explore your options" rather than just buying something you know will work? :crash:

    That doesn't follow at all. Support has to know whether a rider/team is using Shimano or Campy or whatever, so they can just continue to support whatever the particular rider/team uses. They're...

    Same here. I could probably be accused of TTing my commute by some factions of the Commuting subforum as well. My commute is about 6.5-7 miles each way and if it weren't for stop lights/signs, I'd...

    "Quicker" to me implies an indexed system and a HG-ish cassette/FW that lets you "click" and get back to the handlebars right away.

    But what fun is that? Especially if it gets banged out of...

    If the manufacturer of your new crankset is nice enough, they'll provide a recommended BB length, and attachment type. From there, you'd just get the right BB for your frame. :)

    Ooh, good point! With a "tripleizer" chainring, you can attach a granny ring to the now-middle 42T inner chainring. I think pastorbobnlnh has started making those, after other outfits stopped. ...

    41T is the smallest possible chainring for 144 BCD, and that's pretty rare. You'll probably need to switch to a different crankset or freewheel/cassette to get lower gears...

    From what I understand, a gear like 50/21 is a strain on the rider, but not really one on the rear hub and pawls. For that, you need the leverage of a much lower gear. (Shimano has rated some...
