    I never noticed any big-small wheel difference with the cold. My studded tires on big wheel bikes are about 5mm wider. I hardly ever ride through the snow; but the studded tires make a big...

    It is an interesting design. Mounting a freewheel onto the frame is a twist ... did Cinelli produce a frame/freewheel bike in the 60s? And from the website I see that you alter the wheelsize to fit...

    I don't know enough about the fork -- or engineering -- to say it will break, but unless this is just a fun project I agree with Thor that it's a waste of time and energy. If it's just for fun, good...

    As an aside, I think the fork crown is generally considered part of the fork. Your fork lacks cantilever mounts on the fork blades.

    Really? If it's a NWT then you can normally fit close to 50mm wide tires. Maybe they exist, but it would be unusual to have a set of caliper brakes that reach around a wide tire with a fender.

    If you're careless when folding the bike with the front derailer, the chain can get stuck on the front derailer and it can get bent out of shape. I'm guessing that this person screwed up and the...

    There has been a lot of testing on the front rack. It's been around for over 5 years with lots of people giving it real world use. I'm not worried about it. My personal experiences is that the...

    I suppose; but it doesn't worry me. But what I really need to know is whether the Tektro BX3V sits flush against the brake boss.

    Assuming that we are moving the rack forward because of a new set of brakes, a spacer -- something like a washer -- would move the eyelet mounting location in the wrong direction. One would new a...

    There are three mounting locations. In front of both brake studs and a fender eyelet. The three mounting locations make it very stable; but reduce the tolerance for changes.

    Hey! Look at that! Maybe there is hope. I wonder whether the other BMX short pull v-brakes are similar? The 80mm arm length will create problems with the fender. Tektro has a BX3v with a 85mm...

    Unfortunately, I tried a set of Tektro RX5s ... and they did not mount flush against the brake boss and was incompatible with the front rack.
  16. looking for short pull v-brakes that sit flush with the brake boss

    Hello folks,

    I was modifying a folding bike from a MTB to road setup and decided to change the v brakes from long to short pull. Mechanically, everything works fine except that the short pull...

    There is a learning curve. The boss thought that the Strida was a bit awkward until I showed her a handful of tricks. And the Strida really is the easiest bike I've ever rolled while folded.

    A lot of this is hard to quantify. So some of the disagreement might just be due to the vagueness of language.

    What type of riding are you doing with this bike? Any bike that is cheap and compact for crowded trains and buses is going to come with compromises.

    NuVinci 360 is supposedly very robust. Glad to see that it's working out for you.

    Related to your question, should we assume that you've already tried fat tires and it didn't work out for you?
