    Do you do the restorations or are these in original condition?

    Rip VanWinkel, here,

    I just woke up from my nap and suddenly bicycles have "breaks" instead of "brakes". WTF? Has the Tea Party finally implemented their education plan? :50:

    Mr. Burkhart,

    If one reads between the lines here, one can sense that the main reason for the S3X failures COULD BE incorrect shifter adjustment. I looked around and didn't find a tutorial on how...

    19 may be a good cog.That's a bout 2.5 to 1. It's comfortable. You may try and coast once or twice but your muscles quickly remember not to stop pedaling.

    You're strong, bro. I never rode a century on fixed.

    Anyone know if these are near the quality of the Champions? They come in boxes of 100 with silver brass nipples for $34 -$44. DT doesn't mention them on their website.

    Nothing wrong with some vestigial cable guides, I guess. I just get a bit obsessive about design detail. Even in a rat build.

    A thin greased washer around the braze would serve as a blade guide,...
