    Hm, good to know. I thought you sized down for a tighter fit: I find when I'm going over off-road stuff, I don't stay in my seat too often.

    I've got a similar problem, but I was thinking of using a spare Dura-Ace 7700 9spd (short cage) RD (or its Ultegra counterpart) & 12-25 cassette in back with a 38T Race Face or Wolf Tooth wide-narrow...

    Well, I was just about to ask a similar question. Time for me to purchase a set of CR-18s; thanks, guys!

    On a side note, I'll be putting these on a CX bike. What's the widest 700c tire they can...

    I don't know how it is in CA, but in MI, you can do way better than a 20-year old Schwinn for $105.

  12. Garmin Edge 500 Issue: Should I reset it to factory defaults?

    Crazy thing happened to me recently: it seems that my new computer won't detect my Garmin 500. I downloaded the Web Updater from the Garmin website, and it won't detect the unit, no matter what USB...

    I know my mechanical stuff, and I know my battery-powered lights, but when it comes to stuff that connects to dyna-hubs and external chargers, I'm at a bit of a loss.

    It's grinding a bit, probably needs some grease. While my wheel is similar to the OP, it's hardly high-end.



    I'm going to assume that the set screw is the 2mm Allen bolt. So I take that off,...

    Except when bicycles were used back in the 1800s, scaring the crap out of horses when used on the streets and causing harm to pedestrians on the pavement.

    I'm going to assume that for distances less than 50 miles or urban routes with constant stops, SPDs are the way to go, but for long distance runs, SPD-SL is preferable?
