    Ditto to all of the above. I've built perfectly suitable and durable wheels using nothing more than a flipped-over frame to true the wheels. Dishing was just a process of flipping the wheel around to...

    I find that the cheaper Shimano stuff- the Tiagra/105 level- is more attractive than the more expensive groups. Plain silver aluminum stays pretty and is easier to clean than black or multi-shade...

    Definitely start with a complete bike. I'm starting with a very weatherbeaten frame, fork and handlebars, but I have a garage-full of parts and I'm going for the restomod treatment anyway. Mine's...

    One bike I had made a strong creak-click with every pedal stroke. I removed the bottom bracket, greased the threads, then reinstalled the BB. The noise went away, but soon reappeared. I did this...

    Clicks, creaks, and chirps are incredibly hard to diagnose, even when working on the bike. Noises can happen in one area of the bike, then resonate and sound like they come from a completely...

    Ditto here. I'm 6-foot-4 with a 36 inch inseam. I have a 26" Superior that's getting the restomod treatment, but I anticipate riding it with less than a fistfull of seatpost showing.

    It does depend where you work, but at one job in Portland they bought us reduced memberships at a nearby health club. At another, the building had secure indoor bike parking and a public shower.

    It would work if the TRP levers and Magura rim calipers use the exact same hydraulic cylinder diameters and stroke lengths. I would bet that they do not.
