    I thought this may be a problem (hence the post). If it is a problem (which it seems to be), I'll likely suck it up and use mechanical BB7s.

    I mostly wanted the widest slicks available. I'm willing to think about something else, for sure. I guess I should go back to looking at Big Apples or similar.

    Please make some suggestions on...
  3. Suggestions for Really Wide Rims (for Rim Brakes?)

    I am going to build up a Surly Troll soon for commuting, camping, mountain biking, and everything in between.

    The goal is to run smooth Maxxis Hookworms (26x2.5) for commuting and the widest tires...

    Thanks, everyone. I'll probably grab a Nitto Periscopa (which has sub-2.5" minimum insertion line), but it is good to know that others generally think it will be okay.

    After some measuring, it seems I need the bottom of the stem to minimum insertion line to be approximately 2.5 inches instead of the 3 inches that are pretty common on stems.

    I have a old Nitto...

    Well, these things certainly have liberal safety factors, but I would hate to do anything but abide by the minimum insertion and have something happen to her.

    What do others think?

    It is a 19 inch (48 cm) frame. I'll get you the relevant measurements when I get home from work (how much insertion, headset, etc).

    Ideally, I wouldn't cut the Nitto stem simply because I can...

    Minimum Insertion to Bar Height Ratio

    Hello all!

    My wife rides a 1984 Trek 660 road bike. She's not a fan of drop bars despite my attempts, so we switched her to mustache bars. The consensus seems that you have to get mustache bars up...
  11. Oops! - Garmin Edge 500 Start 60+ Miles from End of Ride

    I accidentally started my Garmin Edge 500 after returning from a 67+ mile charity ride today, and now my Strava ride reads that I cycled 131 miles!

    I likely won't be doing full tours, just 200k at light loads or 60k for higher loads. Not really out far enough where help is outside the realm of possibility.

    This is helpful. I'd certainly like 36h wheels, but I found some for my budget (~$300) and 32h.
  14. (Not Quite) Touring Wheelset - 700c 32h Velocity A23 with Ultegra Hubs - Thoughts?

    Since there's no "bike camping" thread, I thought this would be the best place. Wheels are generally super-important to tourers.

    I'm looking for a "budget" wheelset for camping, commuting,...

    May look at something slightly lighter duty, suited for bike camping, commuting, gravel grinding, and randonneuring. At least 32h (36h preferred) with a rim wide enough to run a at least a 700x35c...
  16. WTB: 700c Touring Wheelset (Mavic, Velocity, VO)

    Looking for a touring wheelset of pretty high quality, hopefully Mavic A719, Velocity Dyad, Velo Orange Diagonale, etc. No preference on 126mm or 130mm spacing. Strongly prefer all silver/gray.

    The versatility of this frame is simply ridiculous. Redone once again, this time as a true gravel grinder.

    Also, the new wide version of the Soma Sparrow takes barcons.

    Personally, I've used them on those and the Nitto Albatross.

    I was worried that the Campee or Big Rack were my only options.

    Looks like I'll have to sell my M12 to make room for one of them. Nitto really should make stand-alone lowriders.

    Vanity - Low Rider Fork Mounted Racks

    I'd like to find some lowrider racks for my '88 Trek 520 so I can finally get into some bike camping and more extensive bike errands, but there's a little problem...

    Transormation

    Found myself an '88 Trek 520, so my Cross Check went from a classy lady (pictured first) to a fat-tired single speed. Note the flipped Nitto Albatross bars.

    I'm in a very similar situation. Last Thursday I picked up a '88 Trek 520 with Reynolds steel. The thing may have been ridden once; it was in perfect condition besides the dust.

    It seems we've...
