    Thanks for the suggestions, guys, but I don't really want to spend the extra money on the 3rd/4th hand tools and yokes, when I've already got a setup that has worked well for me in the past....never...

    I was about to suggest a San Jose frameset, until I looked it up and realized that it has track-style rear dropouts, so it wouldn't really work as a geared bike, unless you used an IGH.

    Here's my...

    All that's left of the original parts on my Fuji Royale II is the frame, fork, headset, and crank arms (chainring is modern Origin8). This is my wet-weather commuter/transportation bike, though, and...

    Cantilever Z link cable lengths?

    I know that there are 5 standard lengths for these cables, but how are those lengths measured, and how can I best determine the correct length for my setup? Like, is it from the end of the grey...

    If anyone was curious about the resolution on this....I took my original BB into the shop where I bought the new one...the original measured just over 110mm, and the Shimano 110 measured closer to...

    Not that frequently at work, because everyone's used to it and I work in Boston, where there's a lot of bike usage, but I'm frequently asked, "did you [really] ride your bike here?" (or variations on...

    Picked up a Surly Hurdy Gurdy chain tensioner yesterday, and also checked/tightened the cones and locknuts while installing it...I've only taken it for short rides so far, but it's all feeling pretty...

    Received and installed the Dajia Cycleworks shallow drop bars yesterday, along with an Origin 8 26mm quill stem. They look good, but it's a huge pain to get the stem around the sharper bend at the...

    It's bugging the hell out of me that I spelled "Tiagra" incorrectly in the thread title :roflmao2:

    I have a 1983 Fuji Royale II that I converted to single speed...I replaced the original brake levers with Cane Creek aero levers, and added cross levers. It actually never even occured to me that...
  11. Stupid aesthetic question: Shimano Tiagra 4500 and 4600 - same colors?

    As indicated in the thread title, I realize this is a stupid question about something that won't matter in any practical capacity, but as someone with an eye for detail, I'm wondering if a Tiagra...

    I'll take the original with me, and see what they say. Even if it's only on the non-drive side, I'd still probably notice the difference.

    FWIW, I like the Sturmey Archer XL-FD 90mm drum brake on my Fuji single-speed conversion. It's set up as my wet-weather bike, and will be getting a 5-speed internally geared drum brake hub...

    Brought home the 110mm BB, and upon removing the cranks and pulling the stock BB out, it appears that 110 is actually slightly LONGER than the original! I'm gonna pop by the shop tomorrow afternoon...

    I called up a local shop that's a Bianchi dealer, their service department told me it should be 110.
  17. BB spindle length for 2011 Bianchi Volpe with Sugino XD500 triple crank?

    Since I don't have a quick and easy way to check this without completely removing the bottom bracket, does anyone know what length came stock on the 2011 Volpe? I read that this crankset uses...

    Trouble is, this would provide me with basically the opposite of my end goal. I'm trying to make two bikes feel MORE similar to each other, not less! The bars I already have are the correct width,...

    I have a cone wrench and know how to use it...but to be fair, the last person to adjust the hub before I found the source of the clicking noise wasn't me. In any case, I've had a local shop order in...

    The original stem is a Nitto Young, 80mm. I've just found these, which look like they'd be perfect for what I'm after, other than the fact that it would mean replacing the stem as well...but at...
  21. Single speed - rear axle moves slightly in semi-horizontal dropout

    I've had a recurring problem with my wet-weather single speed, where it would gradually develop a loud clicking sound. This will usually show up after doing a slower social ride where I'm standing...
  22. Shortest-reach 25.4mm clamp diameter drop handlebars?

    I'm trying to make my vintage Fuji Royale II fit me more comfortably, and it seems like the way to do that is to shorten the reach of the bars and/or stem. I'd like to stay with a classic-looking...
