    Looks like a Baby Park from here. Probably works just fine, or can be cajoled out of any annoying quirks (more easily than with people). My only concern is that it appears to want to be...

    Glad it all worked out. You got the bike, and those weasels got the finger. I went from shop to shop up where I live, pretending to be a neophyte and asking lots of questions. It was like my "Naughty...

    Good!

    There is no excuse for selling someone a bike that doesn't fit them. I hope that sales-weasel gets his next job in a shoe-store. :notamused:

    The Avid SD 7 v-brakes I run are coupled to these:

    Love Lever 2.5 from Paul Component Engineering

    And they are capable of throwing me over the bars if I'm being a ham-handed twit that day.

    You can always get some fine emery-paper and buff them smooth - if they disturb you.

    Perhaps you need a spacer. I've seen this problem many times and often that's all that's needed.

    Good luck!

    I once built a real junker of a bike as a joke. It only had a front brake, and I Tefloned the rim of the wheel to reduce stopping power. It was a 10-speed frame, so, of course, I put BMX handle-bars...

    A big enemy of tires, and other rubber-type compounds, is UV. Ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. So if you are planning on storing tires for an extended period, make it a darkened place away from...

    You could always drop a stack of money buying the bike from a shop overseas and have them ship it to you. Or go over and buy it there and have a nice vacation. Then you could ship it back.

    I remember Ross bikes from the 1960's. They were basically good, inexpensive transportation - making a range of styles that were quite similar to Schwinn bikes of the day. Huffy's were known to live...

    It all boils down to this: Is the cost differential between the 7.3 and 7.4 worth the "better" grips, tires(?), carbon fork, and Deore/Acera derailleurs? Parts is parts. When you buy a new bicycle...

    It depends on your wheels. I built a pair out of Mavic A719 rims, Ultegra hubs, and DT 14-15-14 gauge spokes - 36 rear and 32 front. Those wheels could handle Yak-paths in Tibet! Make for very tough...

    Rather than buying a bag of 20 right off the bat, try politely asking your local bike-shop if they can spare a couple. If only to entice you to patronize the shop, many will gladly fork over some.

    The ferrules should be the same diameter as the cable. You want a ferrule? Or an end-cap to prevent fraying? Anywho - poke around here to see what you need. If it's just one or two, many bike-shops...
