    Looks nice. Your pride is justified. Were some of the Benottos made in Mexico? You should flip your front brake shoe holders over so the pads don't slide out when braking. Also, it appears the...

    I bought a famous-name-brand luggage scale. Soon found it was reading two pounds light at 22 lbs. I'd hate to be counting on that one in the airport check-in line. Took it back and bought another...

    Part of the comprehension problem here is the measurement:

    The OP says .010 thousandths - I think he meant .010" (10 thousandths of an inch).

    The next guy says 10 mils. Mils is machinist...

    As a C&Ver, I find that the carbon guys sometimes seem to bear down and pass me going as fast as they possibly can, I'm guessing to express their belief that steel does not constitute a real bike. ...

    I guess it's possible, but I have trouble imagining any current bike becoming a C&V grail in the future. There are just so many, and they all seem to be mass-produced in cookie factories by hourly...

    I think I see a Shimano FFS (front freewheel system) and the seat looks like it would hurt one's behind. The seat could be replaced cheaply, but you would be stuck with the FFS.

    I think we should notify the physics department. He's breaking the laws of physics.

    I also see that he'd better put some air in that rear tire if he expects to go 7 km... :)

    Bike Shops? I don't need no stinkin' bike shops.

    I'm a competent mechanic, have my own tools, and can buy online and fix my own bikes if the shops don't like seeing me coming into their brick...

    I looked but couldn't find a question in your original post, but I assume you are asking for my opinion. :)

    A, 3. No patches, mostly tubulars, and a few clinchers with new tubes. I don't flat very often, and I don't patch, patches have let me down too many times. Life is short. I just throw them away.
