    I'm trying for the full hundred, but riding with my dad, so he might not be feeling it. I'm not sure if registration's closed now, but you might still be able to sign up. I did 55 miles of it last...

    Yeah, I'm really sorry, but I yell at people like you when I do happen to be in the park. It's WAY too crowded now, and there are too many unpredictable novice cyclists, as well as tourists playing...

    I knew you have to pay like $25 for a year's membership. Not so sure about the site itself.

    The weekend after labor day I'm doing the NYC century. Maybe 9/14 or 15?

    davidad & @ sreten, I'm planning to replace eventually. Right now I can't spare the training/riding time, it's been WAAAY too nice out in NYC. Anyone who went through last summer up here knows how...

    Nope, other end of the A: Inwood.

    9W comes and goes, but generally I like it because of the wide shoulders. I'm not sure how it gets north of Alpine NJ (basically state-line), but I understand...

    Absolutely, definitely, positively, 110% no offense ever taken, and I never actually thought you meant to insult. I was just being snide is all. Besides, having spent more than my fair share of time...

    Yeah, I was thinking about that. But it seemed like maybe the NYCC crowd is a bit older than my age bracket... I was hoping to do some socializing with folks in the 25-40 year-old range on top of...

    Haha, sorry. Russian's a b$tch for auto-translate b/c the syntax is so out-there. What I said was, [interpose accent here] "why do you insult the motherland so?!"

    NYC: Looking for Road-Riding Buddies

    All, I posted something similar a while back on someone else's thread, but didn't get a reply. Giving it a shot here.

    Anyway, so I'm in my early 30s, decently experienced road rider, full-on...

    Need to replace spokes after chain jump?

    I had my chain jump off the inside cog recently. I didn't notice at first, but when I was cleaning the drive train I saw that several of the drive side spokes were looking pretty shredded. Do I need...

    Yeah, I used to ride the park loop all the time, but it's just too crowded during the times I can get to it (ie the weekends). I'm figuring it'll calm back down come late October or November--good...
  15. Kmc chain, shimano mech, SRAM cassette -- any issues?

    Hi all, it's time for me to replace my road cassette, and I'm thinking about getting a sram instead of shimano. I understand that shimano chains and sram cassettes are compatible, and vice-versa, and...

    FBinNY, no no, not at all. I'm totally sold on the chainwear idea. Especially if, and this didn't occur to me earlier, I'm wearing them out at a faster pace than other cyclists due to size, etc.

    bikeman715: I think the chainline is OK--see the photos above. The straight shot would be 1-4, I think, so it deflects a bit in 1-1, but nothing too extreme.

    Thanks for that! But sorry, I'm an idiot: not 1/8, but btw 1/16 and 1/8. Shop guy measured with his tool and said it was (just) within the limits.

    Not so sure about that: this is the second or third set of pads I've used on this bike, and the first time I've ever noticed an issue. I'm guessing it's pad-related.

    But the real question is...

    Nope, the squeak is gone. But I'm just wondering what the other 2/3 of the pad is for if I can stop the bike with the first third. Oh well.

    Canti brake EXTREEEEEEME toe-in?

    Apologies for the all-caps. It's just the angle of this toe-in only conjures up one thing: the image of Macho Man Randy Savage yelling "extreeeeeeeeme" while eating jerky.
