    Sorry didn't mean to offend (note that I didn't suggest you give them away). But if you're not going to make any more, just figured you could get some return on the R&D.

    Need more knicks! I would have jumped on them if the 32" hadn't sold out so damn fast.

    If you're not going to re-stock, maybe you could sell instructions/patterns for making them?

    I believe it's because Mike asked for input then largely ignored the responses. I'm sure he couldn't accomodate everyone, but if I remember correctly, the key things that were overlooked were:

    What I neglected to mention was that the bike in question is a fixed gear, so having the chain on would be helpful--although I might try bracing the opposite crank arm with a 2x4 before I re-assembly...

    Yea, I have tried the impact approach by holding the wrench and hitting the pivot point (on the wrench not the crank). I didn't have a helper, so the force was likely absorbed by my hand since I...

    Do you want to replace it with sealed BB? If so, you'll need three pieces of info:

    1. The diameter of the BB shell
    2. The width you'll need for the cranks you plan to use (check with Sheldon...
  9. Removing pedals that seem to be held on with a thread locker

    Just picked up a bike with some speedplay frogs that cannot be removed. I'm figuring there's some loctite sitting in the thread--or the previous owner cranked the pedals on so tight that the threads...

    The required spindle length is based on the crank and has nothing to do with the bike frame. You'll need a new BB with a 110mm square taper spindle to use the All City Cranks. The SRAM/Truvative BB...

    You could have saved your self a pantload (assuming you wear small pants) of your time by not watching it and saved us a small pantload of our time reading your grumpy post...just saying.

    The problem is that you have to cold set your forks/rear triangle every time you switch.

    Don't ask me how I know this.

    Safety... in that it's one more tool a thief has to bring to remove parts from the bike. I know, it's all smoke and mirrors. I carry a 15mm wrench, so why wouldn't a thief.

    But thanks! I'll check...

    Quick-release to solid axle

    I picked up an old Motobecane conversion that still used the original QR for the front hub. I'd like to swap for a solid axle. I've not done this before and it seems pretty straight forward. Is there...

    Thanks TRON. Yea, my wife is trying to get a bike locker now--no more locking a decent bike unattended. I did some searching yesterday, but couldn't find any theft reports from those boxes.

    No, not yet. My fav bike shop is The Bike Club in Arlington. I don't know if they can hook you up for $200 but it might be close.

    The next place I would recommend is the Saturday Flea Market at...
