    Great, thanks a lot! But... that doesn't look like 700Cx20. Actually, 700Cx20 are usually sew-ups. What is the width of the tire, exactly? Did you mean 2" ?

    Taiwanese bike frames are excellent. And by "bike" I mean both bicycle and motorbike.

    I mentioned two sites, and I could find a lot of good deals. But that's just me - we all have different levels of skill, interest, attention span and strategy of searching.

    Chinese sources of bike components?

    I've been shifting my purchases towards Chinese web-shops. I found out that, if I use common sense I can find good or adequate quality products while saving a huge deal of money. I've been purchasing...

    That's actually quite interesting. What size tube/tire did you ride? How exactly is the knot positioned? Tell us more.

    This is all the more interesting because it's a snakebite puncture - i.e....

    That front fork looks like it may actually work. In which case, this is the most awesome bike I've seen the whole year.

    Are you 100% sure about this? In Finland, it does certainly not contain any glycerine. It does contain denaturants, but they are all volatile solvents.
