    Thanks! These may come in handy.

    Everyone else - thanks for the opinions. I was asking for these prices because the insurance company was asking for them (for whatever reason). I instead sent...
  2. Retail prices for Shimano 600 tricolor components and same-era Deore DX/XT

    Hi, kind of an odd request. Does anyone have the MSRP of the components from the Shimano 600EX tricolor group? And for components from Deore DX and XT groups from the same era - late 80s/early 90s?...
  3. Abus Bordo Granit X-Plus 6500 lock impressions?

    I'm getting a second lock for my bike as I'm moving to NYC where I want my bike to be as unattractive to thieves as possible. I currently have an OnGuard Bulldog U-lock, I normally use it with a...

    This is what I'm thinking to. It will make it a bit more tricky to make.

    OK, well I will put this on hold until I can think of a clean way to get the rear fork to pivot. JiveTurkey, I remember reading about the bungee on bikesnob a while back! Too funny...

    Hi BCRider, thanks for your thoughts. I think you're right in your points about the flexiness/unreliability of the connection, but now I'm thinking those issues could be solved in part by actually...
  7. Extra-extra wide fork = three-wheeled tandem?

    Hi all, I had an idea a while ago for a quick way to create a pseudo-tandem bike by using fork(s) with really wide spacing. Specifically, I thought that if you welded together a fork with spacing...

    In case anyone is curious or finds this thread in regards to another one of these frames, here's my built up version of it. I also took the decals off. It has DA shifters and RD and the rest is...

    Sweet, so since my shim is taller than my shem, and tall enough to compress the headset, I can just do without spacers and use the shim as the compressor? Does it look like my shim is tall enough...

    Great guys, thanks for the tips. I should have mentioned though, that I'm using a 1" fork with a 1 1/8" stem, so there's a shim in there. I think this makes things a bit more complicated, because...

    Spacer needed for 2mm headset gap

    I am just finishing up building a bike with a 1" threadless headset (first bike I've built with a non-threaded headset, so sorry if this is a dumb question!). There's a very small gap between the...

    Looking for a ~120mm, ~20 degree rise threadless stem, for 25.4 Handlebars. 1" or 1 1/8" mount is OK (the fork is 1" and I have a shim). Aluminum is fine, titanium bolts are a plus (but not at all...

    Cool, good to know. I wouldn't say that I let them do it so much as they did it before I bought it!

    The head tube IS basically the same length - on the order of a few millimeters different. The guy who built up the frame, however, cut the fork's steer tube to the absolute minimum height, while on...

    Steer tube too short - new fork or new stem?

    Hi guys, I just bought a new frame/fork/headset. The frame is a great match in size to my current bike, but the fork's steer tube is about 1.5" shorter and as a result the seat-to-handlebar drop...

    Not to answer for RFC but, careful selection of the gears will suffice :) Sheldon has some nice words about building up single speeds in absence of horizontal dropouts.

    Nice bike! I was planning on taking of the decals, and you have just confirmed by urge. Is the frame fairly light? Looks like you have it built up as a singlespeed, cool! This will be my...
  20. Help identifying mid-90s Performance Ti frame?

    Hi all, just snagged this frame at a good price. The owner didn't know too much about when it was made, and who made it, but it's a Performance-branded Ti frame with really nice welds, he thinks...

    Thanks for the tips guys. Hitting upwards with a hammer, with wood between stem and hammer, didn't help, unfortunately. On the one hand it doesn't make sense that the stem is down too far because...

    Bizarre stuck stem problem

    Hey guys, I'm working on a bike (threaded headset) where I'm swapping out the stem. Yesterday, the stem was loose enough that I could easily rotate it independently of the fork, and remove it with...

    Huh, interesting re: the shorter teeth, I didn't realize that. At any rate, I did file them down and it works quite well now!

    Squished chainring teeth

    Hey guys, I was working on my girlfriend's bike today and noticed that two of the teeth on the outer chainring are basically squished down on the top. The tip isn't just flattened, the metal is...
