    You've got me rethinking the Fantom Cross Pro Titanium I bought for a couple of reasons:
    1. Price
    2. Those discs are mounted inside, so I wouldn't have to buy a new rack and fiddle with that at all...

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I've already removed the cones on the axle an taken the freehub body off the hub. I'm talking about the internal cone inside the freehub that holds the bearings on the drive...

    Mine's been ridden through Oregon winters of constant wet and submerged a number of times going through rather deep puddles (see ponds) along the MUP. I think all the lube has just been flushed out...
  7. Any reason I shouldn't plop freehub into ultrasonic cleaner?

    I think it's probably OK, but wondering if there's any reason I shouldn't do this. I've removed the freehub from the main hub body and will take the rubber seals off. If I run a few cycles, blow it...

    Currently I run 105 on my winter bike and Nashbar Microshift on my fair-weather bike. They have different mechanisms for shifting and I don't even have to think when I shift between the two bikes. ...

    Talk me out of a new bike (with disc brakes)

    So I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and the rims and brakes are wearing out to fast on my winter bike (Windsor Cyclo from BD). I'm too lazy to clean off the rims after each ride and I tore...

    I don't like getting wet, and here in PNW you definitely get more wet from the outside rain than the inner sweat (in rain gear). Even on a really long commute, you can't get any wetter from sweat...

    Nashbar tech agreed to send me a 108mm bottom bracket. They don't have one in stock, so they have to order it and send it to me, which will probably take forever (especially going from Ohio to...

    So first some quick background on why I ask this question:
