    I'm sporting a 22 small ring in front and a 30 big cog in the rear. The hills are a little slower, but they sure are a lot easier on my body. I don't know a lot about the kind of offerings they had...

    There's some secret that Salsa seems to know that makes their bar tape particularly plush and comfortable. I'd highly recommend it. It's worlds better than the cheaper generic stuff, and with that I...

    Australia would be cool, but camping there with all of the biting things that kill you would make me nervous... And I think it's expensive to fly there from the US.

    A friend and I have been working up to doing a big tour for ~2months. We were shooting for Europe, but unfortunately things didn't get wrapped up in time before the weather is getting rainy and...

    I was also considering how to use these as front panniers. My bike doesn't seem to like a lot of weight in the front anyway, so a pair of these to put the sleeping bag, pad, tent, and perhaps a few...

    It looks like it's probably of decent quality. I also bet it would fit a 700c bike. Most say they're suitable for 700c or 26". Just take your bike with you, or perhaps just a wheel if you have decent...

    30cm? I've never seen anything close to that. I would ask the person who did the fitting for a recommendation. Maybe there's a bar for a kids bike somewhere that measures that narrow?

    Are you saying that what I said is rubbish? If so, which part of what I said is incorrect? And I wouldn't count on roadies to correct anything. They're no better than anyone else.

    Luckily for me, The Golden Boy is fairly local and his Nitto wasn't working out for him. That resulted in me getting the Nitto I wanted and I do really like it. It was just what I needed. Thanks...

    Thanks, bwgride.

    Cheap, wide front rack?

    I was thinking it might be nice to have a wide front rack that would be capable of hauling a bundle of firewood when doing campground camping. Anyone know of anything?

    OK, so this chain measures 7mm and the Missing Link II measures 7mm. I'm guessing they're both 7.1. The Missing Link is in fact too wide, and it wasn't a packaging mistake.

  22. Chain Problems - For the love of everything, and my sanity, please help.

    I bought a Shimano chain(which will never happen again). I think it was an HG70. It says 8sp, HG, and Narrow on the chain. It came with a stupid little single use pin to connect it. I needed to...
