    paired spoke rim question

    I'm toying with the idea of adding some paired spoke rims to a road bike I'm rebuilding, mainly for looks. Looking specifically at some Rolf Vector rims (20/24 spoke count). I know there were issues...

    thanks. I took it out tonight for a local shop group ride. Got a few looks like 'what the hell is that'. There's a section they've deemed a sprint zone towards the end of the ride that is more or...

    Sticky: Schinn 974

    A 1989 Schwinn 974 I picked up that was hanging in an LBS a few months back. It was a mess when I got it (functional but extremely dirty). I used the Tiagra group, rims & other parts leftover from...

    My LBS made me a hell of an offer on the same bike. I took it for a test ride on one of the shop's weekly 20ish mile group rides. Damn thing was much faster than my Trek & I loved the Ultegra. The...

    agreed on the PDG bikes. They fly under the radar. I had a PDG 3 series & ended up selling it when I got my '84 Waterford built Paramount. I won't get into the debates of which is better. Each has...

    First, if this isn't the right forum feel free to move. Now, I've got a Schwinn 754 I'm rebuilding. I'm not interested in stripping the frame down & refinishing the whole thing. I am interested in...

    The fork isn't installed upside down but it is backwards (where does the spoon go?). Guess I'll need a special tool for that.

    The trek is a press fit, not threaded. The BB I've got didn't come from the Trek (that one is in a box). This is one that was on a different crank a friend gave me.

    I actually have that one but it won't screw into the BB shell. It was on another crank I got from a friend. I just assumed it was threaded different than the Schwinn. Will check again.
