    380 pounds here and during the summer I was riding on some 700x28c tires that I generally kept about 120psi on my Specialized Sequoia. Lately I have been riding my Motobecane Fantom Cross with...

    I had a Mavic Open Pro 28 spoke wheel on an Ultegra hub (smooth as glass). It was one of the older Open Pros. I got it used at my old bike co-op about 2 years ago. I am a bit bigger than you at...

    Here is my latest thing. Got the basic bike for 10 dollars at a yard sale complete. I wanted it because it was a Cannondale. At first when I saw the yard sale ad, I wasn't interested in...

    Funny thing is that is what I thought at first. I saw the bike in an ad for the yard sale on a shop and swap posting on Facebook. I saw the bike and saw the Bud Light on the top tube and...
  6. How to remove lettering/logos off of a nineties era Cannondale Bud Light bike?

    I finally got lucky and found a decent Cannondale bike yesterday at a yard sale. For 5 dollars, I got a mid nineties complete Cannondale Bud Light MTB. The bike is in pretty decent shape considering...

    Whooops. I meant to put this in C&V, not general. They are big on MTB drop bar conversions there.

    I hate mixing old Suntour with modern Shimano 7-8 speed indexing. It sometimes can be "ok" but usually just ends up being an exercise in frustration. To me the hassles are not worth the...

    You really think you are averaging 36-48mph?

    As for the bike, don't put the money into it. Totally not worth it in the least. Kind of like putting an expensive paintjob on an junky old Yugo car....

    I would put a cheap front suspension fork on your lightweight racer. :)

    Is it possible that the braking path is worn down to the point where its somewhat weakened allowing stresses that would normally not affect a rim to allow it to bend too easily?

    That is it I think! It looks like the Silca head. I will test it and see if it works. The gasket is in place, I was just expecting a reversible setup like on most pumps. Didn't realize that it...

    Actually I'm curious about this. I bought a standard compressor air filler like the ones at the gas station with the pressure reader thing that pops out of the body at my co-op. It has 2 filler...

    Echoing the others. I would bend that back in a heartbeat without any reservation. I was picturing in my head a dropout that was bent nearly 90 degrees, this is so far from it.

    Left, skinny inner cage profile for 52/42/30 (middle ring size is the most important). Right, wide inner cage profile for 50/39/30.

    Okay here is the deal with front SHimano derailleurs for triples. I know a lot about them because that is all I run (triples and Shimano) on all my bikes currently excluding my mountain bikes.

    I think I might have a 9 speed Dura Ace right side shifter that I would let go for cheap. It might be the 7700, I will have to look at it.

    It does work. I flushed it out a couple of years ago...

    If it rotates, it will come out provided there isn't any oddness like a water bottle bolt sticking into it. You just need more strength. Strip the frame so there is no fork, no rear wheel and maybe...

    The problem is that you lose the center range. You have to realize that you lose all those gears in the 42t range when you go to the 34 and so you will have to shift back and forth the front...

    I see where Drew is going with this. If you had a 10 or 11 speed system, it wouldn't be as much of a deal. You would have a wide variety of rear gears to give you more choices. You only have 7...

    Well then if you are changing everything to Dura Ace 7400, then everything should work just fine. I probably wouldn't bother mixing a standard SIS rear derailleur with a 7400 shifter or a 7400...

    Hmmm. I am not positive but I think the 7400 rear derailleurs are the oddballs that require 7400 shifters. They pull different cable. However you can work around the issue but it would easier to...
