    PCWCFA- You've reopened an old thread so as you see you may get answers unrelated to your question. Generally it's best to start your own thread. Anyway, you can still get the one piece pads for...

    My guess is well over 25,000 miles on the wheels, the rims are getting a little concave. BTW, my own experience with Open Pros has been nothing but positive. Eyelets, welded rim, machined brake...

    Thanks! I don't have much experience with spoke breakage so I didn't know this was a common failure. I doubt my friend has much tolerance for ride disruption so it's probably time to think about...

    Someone earlier speculated that your seat post collar hardware may not be the normal spec. It hasn't been mentioned but is your bike an actual Pinarello or one of the Chinese replicas?

    CarstenDoc- you have reopened a half dozen dead threads about shaving. Your fixation is creepy. There are probably other forums where people share your "enthusiasms." Why don't you look for them?

    I don't think you can assume it has any "time" left. Call it a lesson learned and move on.

    I don't think you could go wrong with the new 105 group since you already have a rear wheel. A couple of hundred dollars over the cost of a cobbled or used group and you'll have a bike you'll enjoy...

    You may not be happy with 10 speed friction. I suggest you do some reading about that. As far as 8 or 9, I would not give up indexing for a couple more gears.

    My understanding is that with cartridge bottom brackets facing became less of an issue than it had been with the older loose ball type of BB because the cartridge kept both sides aligned. With...

    You need to define your goals. You mention cycling for "exercise." For lots of us that's code for "lose fat." If that's the case try to ride longer/farther. Burn more calories.

    You may want to specify what patches and cement you are using. Some folks use regular rubber cement but most prefer specific patch cement like Rema or Slime. I may have misread but it seems you...

    Yes, it would be a good idea to keep all your questions in one thread. Next time you have a question, start a new thread titled "Wabi Classic build" or something and keep adding to it. Post pics,...

    If you decide you want the freehub wheel that matches the front you can use a 7 speed cassette and spacer. This will likely work better with your friction shifting than 8 or 9.

    More padding is better on the front. Trust me, nobody wants your junk on display.

    You might want to check that your weight is appropriate for those rims before you put much money into this. The only person I know who rides those can't weigh more than 110 and she's broken one or...

    Since your "special test" is not working for you, maybe you should abandon it and go with one of the methods on the Park Tool site.
