    I've never heard of a Simplex rear derailer failing because a Delrin arm cracked.

    It has been my impression that Suntour freewheels have excellent internals, but they shift no better than any other flat-toothed vintage freewheel. Am I wrong?

    I'm sure that they still carry them, but nobody sells Tufos for 3/$50. If they did, I'd buy 6.

    Comfy 28 mm Tufos. I've never had a flat. Butyl tubes are heavier, but you don't have to pump them every day.

    These are 30 year old tubulars on 40 year old wheels. The sidewalls are crispy and there are loose threads hanging from the base tapes, but I love the way they ride.

    You're not alone. the rollers that are contacting the cog teeth are definitely under load. Easing up on the pressure would seem to make it easier for the jockey pulley to move the chain over to the...

    I got a great deal on a set of high dollar T.A. pedals because the protruding quills had been cut off by a previous owner.

    It is an AO8 and that is the very bottom of the line, but the low end Peugeots have always had a reputation for being very nice rides for the money. That's why they sold a bazillion of them. You got...

    You need to use glass cleaners without ammonia on your car windows if they have a tinted film on them. Ammonia turns the tint purple.

    What do you have against clay? Have you used it?

    I've used it on my truck and my only objection is that it's a lot of work. It leaves the paint very smooth and ready for wax. It seems to cut less...

    If it cracks or gets damaged, just peel it and respray. I've used it on some chromed plastic emblems on cars. A friend did the wheels on her truck and they still look good a year later.
