    I would recommend the Wipperman Connex quick links over others on the market. Not cheap, but you don't need link pliers to remove them.

    Didn't get much time to look around for rides while we were there last time. Maybe more this time - I'm heading down there on Sunday the 30th for at least two weeks. I'm bringing a bike this time. ...

    I'm very pleased with the TB14 rims. They laced and trued quickly, and have held true. The polished finish goes well on the LeMond. If I was looking for a polished box-section rim for another...

    Take an existing wheel and disassemble it. Then re-lace it using any of the previously-mentioned guides. Now you have an idea of what it takes to half-build a wheel.

    Now take an old fork, and...

    The method you describe of adjusting the preload on the bearings seems simple enough and should work fine. I'm sold on the Campy method of adjusting the preload because you do it while the wheel is...

    Can anyone in the Portland area help facilitate on this bike? Would need to ship it to the Chicago area.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is there anyone that would be able to facilitate on this bike?

    I've emailed the seller to try and get some additional photos and to get a measurement on the seat tube.

    Thanks in advance.

    who has a seatpost clamp like this?

    343922

    I need to know the diameter and length of the dowel nut. I'm hoping that it's 7mm in diameter and 10mm in length. I guess we'll know soon enough. :)

    Thanks in advance.

    Or, the pin was pushed out and later reinstalled, and that didn't last long.

    My vote is for Wippermann chains; the Connex link is the best one I've used.
