    Strange but true:
    it`s actually the hub that supposedly needs to be compatible. Look at a the line that a spoke makes as it crosses between the hole in the hub and the nipple. With crossed spokes,...

    They call that "radial" lacing, and since it`s the fasionable way to do things these days, radials are maybe more common than traditional style for the front. Whether that or crossed is "better"...

    Sounds good, but most of the other Cyclists I see are screaming along at like 15MPH or better :lol:

    Anyway, congrats on the just ridden century and have a good time on the permanent.

    Beating the owner in front of his dog often sounds appealing too.

    Re: shooting from a bicycle. I`ve tried it. In six passes to shoot at a gallon paint can hanging in a bush right next to the road,...

    Modernizing a bike from the 80s or 90s really doesn`t present any major issues. You can still buy brand new and smoothly working replacements straight from your LBS, Amazon, or any of the big online...

    If the wheel actuially did slide out of the slots, as I read in the first post, it sounds that way to me too. I agree with VT Speed- probably not a set up all around. Although it would require some...

    Haha, three posts that imply PARTIAL agreement with His Rivness! If the whole world kinda-sorta agreed with him (and He toned down the preaching a bit), it`d be a mo betta place :)

    As long as the pedals are plenty big and have steel pins, I haven`t noticed any difference (only a pool of four models fitting that description). The one pair I`ve tried with molded plastic pins I...

    Photoshop projects, so hopefully you aren`t already screaming down the highways on it? It looks pretty scary as is, Rambomert. Although I`m no engineer, bikes with odd designs that eliminate the...

    I just use two or three bands of black electrical tape on the fork legs, light wire run in conjuction with the computer pickup wire. IMO, it looks clean enough (nicer than coiling around), and when...

    11 speed on a folding bike? Doable, I`m sure, but doesn`t sound like a good idea IMO. Although I honestly can`t claim any personal experience with paper thin sprockets and high count drivetrains,...

    Maybe SO works a control. If he or she is a people watcher or sociable type, it`s a nice way to spend at least a good chunk of the day.

    That wasn`t me. I`m Brian D in Lemmon Valley, northern outskirts of Reno. Hadn`t noticed that the guy you mention is now off the list. Maybe he`s staying at the Mizpah now!

    Since some news sources are billing it as a "supercarretera", I think it`s a safe bet it`s a bit freeway-ish. It does look cool, though. If riding the shoulder of a freeway doesn`t turn you on,...

    Why, why, WHY can`t we get them like that??? If I ever find one, I`ll buy a whole batch before they disappear!

    I believe that! I did end up riding the Wmcca-Glch-Reno route shortly after this thread`s first appearance. It was one of my first multi day rides, and I`ve since...

    Whoa, you`re right! It says his website "expired" on 01/15, the same day that I posted the link. I wonder if he retired? FWIW, the spokes I bought from him are single butted- 14g at the elbow and...
