    My LBS made me a hell of an offer on the same bike. I took it for a test ride on one of the shop's weekly 20ish mile group rides. Damn thing was much faster than my Trek & I loved the Ultegra. The...

    agreed on the PDG bikes. They fly under the radar. I had a PDG 3 series & ended up selling it when I got my '84 Waterford built Paramount. I won't get into the debates of which is better. Each has...

    My kids found petri-fried (pun intended) french fries in the car and ate some. Didn't seem to bother them much (some drooling but no vomiting, think they got a buzz from some of the preservatives)....

    clear coat question

    First, if this isn't the right forum feel free to move. Now, I've got a Schwinn 754 I'm rebuilding. I'm not interested in stripping the frame down & refinishing the whole thing. I am interested in...

    The fork isn't installed upside down but it is backwards (where does the spoon go?). Guess I'll need a special tool for that.

    Seriously though, I'll be putting the bike back together this weekend...

    The trek is a press fit, not threaded. The BB I've got didn't come from the Trek (that one is in a box). This is one that was on a different crank a friend gave me.

    We've already removed the old...

    If you're wanting to upgrade to 10 speed, look for someone that just replaced their tiagra or 105 with something else. That's how I got my SRAM and just missed out on a hell of a deal on an Ultegra...

    mine is about 24 lb. A weak point on some of those is the seat post. Most use an internally adjusting/ratcheting seatpost (similar to a quill stem set up) that would tend to crack. Look for cracks in...
