    There is some wisdom is starting with a cheap bike and riding for a while. Then again, I started on a cheap guitar and found no joy in it, left guitar alone for several years, and then found I loved...

    I have a Trek 7.5 FX and I love it, although I've since put drop bars on it. But it handled quite nicely as a flat bar bike. Take a step up and get the 7.6 if you can.

    PAC Designs out of business

    Anyone else hear? Pretty sad :(

    Well, I thought I'd ask in case there were any Sheldon Brown types with all specs of all bottom brackets ever installed on any bike memorized. You never know. There are those crazy sports statistics...
  5. Bottom Bracket Spindle Length Gary Fisher Tassajara 2001 model

    Anyone know this spec off the top of their head? Maybe 118mm? Pretty sure the shell is standard 68mm. I'd like to figure it out without removing the crankset if possible.

    By all means try the padded shorts first if you want. They probably won't help a lot, though. I had a lot of pain when I first got into cycling and I tried out many different saddles. Padded shorts...

    Back wheel goes in horizontal drop outs on that frame, so it's going to tighten with a nut rather than a quick release skewer. That's normal.

    I'd buy the best trainer you can afford and then get a...

    Yeah, it's pretty terrible. Spinner brand? One with the big rubber boots on the stanchions. A suspension fork I could make due with would probably be $150, 3x the cost of the Nashbar. I've got single...

    No.
  11. Do you find you can still jump off curbs with it?...

    Do you find you can still jump off curbs with it? That's one thing I sometimes do while riding on the sidewalks.

    If money were no object, I'd almost definitely stick with suspension, but the...
  12. Rigid forks for riding down the sidewalks?

    I picked up an old mountain bike on craigslist, and it came with a crappy suspension fork. Does it usually work out well to replace those old suspension forks with a rigid fork like this one:...

    Well, if I only replace one, I'll put it on the front. The tires still have some tread and they aren't worn horribly, but I'm noticing that in some instances I don't have the same traction on the...

    That's OK. I was expecting someone to bash the question eventually, like, "Dude, which leg is most important? Your right or your left? *yuk* *yuk* *yuk*"

    Bump... anyone know the difference between the red and black o-rings in the spring kit? Rockshox/SRAM is pretty much impossible to contact.

    3 votes for front, 1 for back. Sounds like front is winning. BTW, it's a mountain bike if that makes any difference.

    Which tire is most important?

    If both front and back tires are worn down and you were to replace just one, which is the best choice?

    Ah, that sucks :| Probably best I look for another fork then.

    Is there any easy way to tell if my hub is convertible?
  21. Economical options to mount 9mm hub to 15mm thru-axle fork?

    I found a good deal on a fork, but it uses a 15mm thru-axle. What are some economical ways to mount my current 9mm hub to it? I don't want to buy a new wheel.

    Yeah, it's the latter...the stopper for 80mm just prevents further compression. So it seems 100mm is the best choice.

    On the old spring, no o-ring was used on the black cap end of the...
  23. Rockshox Dart 3 Spring Swap - Travel Question

    I just swapped my Rockshox Dart 3 spring for a firm spring. The original spring was using the longer plastic stopper, which I believe gives the fork 80mm of travel. I used the shorter stopper with...

    I guess I'll just have to keep waiting, or not sell it. Obviously these bikes sell new or bike shops would be out of business, and people aren't getting a better deal used than what I'm asking...

    Craigslist and Selling Used Bikes

    I'd like to hear opinions of people that have used Craigslist to sell their used bikes, and I'd like to know if I'm wasting my time on there (because it feels like it). I'm sure it's great for...
