    It didn't start out like that. At first I thought she was joking. She went from joking to all out hatred in just a few seconds- she was in front of my cubicle and my other boss was waiting for...
  3. so I had a heated discussion with a bosses about cyclists

    I'm pretty upset and I need to unload this.

    I just built my first set of wheels last weekend and last night. I finished the front and put it on today and I have put about 100 miles on the rear and I didn't stretch out the spokes enough so...

    I'd like to throw out a thank you too. I live in the valley and am trying to do 10-30 miles before heading home from west LA, so I am going to use your map to skip the sepulveda bus (761) because it...

    I already took it apart.... sorry. Let me try it again this week and maybe the second time around it will click. Mick ran and got the similar number I did- or close thereto- to I am going to try...

    I was hoping that someone here would say that a 1 mm mistake is enough to make it so the wheel would be flimsy. I guess not, so I'll post more info. I tightened the nipple to the point that no thread...
  9. building a new wheel- spoke length question

    This is my first try at wheelbuilding. I got the parts and followed the sheldon brown method. So far so good. Laced the wheel and tightened each nipple until the thread just dissapeared on each...

    It was really cool. They drove us to the top of a decent size mountain/hill, and we just rolled/pedaled down to the base. We went through about 6 or seven villages, even encountered a small school...

    yes Air- I meant the cartridge... I was a little tired at the time of my post... I finally figured it out- it was that my cassette must have been just a hair loose and one of the rings was rubbing...
  13. bottom bracket problem or chain length?

    I replaced the front chainring and something's wrong- the crank seems to have resistance at every 1/2 revolution; it seems to increase in tension, then eases, then increases tension, every half turn....

    cny- that's a good point about better understanding the parts, not the rules. That's my big problem.... I need to sit down tomorrow and tend my rear derailler, so I'm reading here to get a feel. I...

    It was a fun ride. They had a cop who would stop at the intersection while we blew throguh the red lights. But then he'd have to speed past us to catch up, which didn't really make sense. Two cops...
