    YES!! Thank you both!! It was actually a Philips head.

  2. Can't see way to loosen brake lever attachment to crossbar

    Hello,

    My girlfriend has an ancient 1995 Rockhopper which, according to Bikepdeia, has "Shimano Alivio brakes, Shimano Tourney levers."

    I simply want to move the brake levers an inch or so up...

    Just had my 2004 Bianchi Axis frame stripped and re-painted by a local frame painter. I was never crazy about the checkered flag design, and it also had a couple of corrosion spots I wanted to...

    Santa Cruz Superlight 29er, D kit

    My first MTB since my 1998 Trek 7000.

    Test rode about 10 bikes and did a fair share of hand wringing between hard tail and FS, but decided to go with the most comfortable fit and feel for my kind...

    I'm about 6' and weigh ~210. Pretty much a clyde. The Tallboy is super nice, but also about $600 (the D xc 29 kit) more than the Spark comp. I'd rather not spend much above $2100.

    I think I have a problem

    After having not ridden my ancient 1998 Trek 7000 for about 9 years in favor of the road, I've been hitting the trails again lately.

    I then began noticing all the fancy new MTBs out there and in...

    Thanks, Chombi, for all the feedback. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of at least having that entire section of the tube re-painted. Then I think, well, I've never really liked...

    Thanks, dabac (and everyone else). I'm going to see if a local frame painter can take a look and give me a better sense of the frame's health. I hope to be able to at least stop it, and I'll start by...

    The frame is Easton Ultralite aluminum. But yeah, it does look a bit like rust of some kind.
  16. Paint flaking off aluminum frame. A problem?

    I know nothing about the properties of the various bike frame metals.

    That said, on my 2004 Bianchi Axis - on the underside of the downtube - I've got some paint bubbling and flaking off around...

    Ah yes, that's a great ride! Done it many times...the tri-state: 142 from Bratt, down into Gill, over to Northfield and up 10 to 119 in Hinsdale. Now I just wish they'd fix Rt. 5!
