    If you'll be buying anything else from Nashbar, their house-brand cables are reportedly rebranded Jagwires and a lot cheaper. Reviewers seem to like it:

    I'm starting to get the impression that even comfort/city bikes might not be safe. Noticed that Schwalbe did make a production run of their Big Ben model in 650b x 2.0 and it sold out at every online...

    Another bad assumption. I'm already at the smallest chainring size available for my bolt circle diameter. Or are you suggesting it would be somehow "cheaper" for me to replace the crank in addition...

    No, the OP also said that "When it is upside down, I can spin the back wheel and it keeps going on its own for a looong long time." If the brake was rubbing, it wouldn't do that. Definitely sounds...

    I'd go further and say with an attitude like that, he should stop bicycling completely. He's a grade A menace on the roads.

    Thanks again, Charlie. Yeah, that's a good thing about derailleurs - Shimano makes them with quality build. The cheap tensioners get so many complaints about springs and whatnot breaking. I've never...

    Thanks, Charlie. That's what I've been thinking, but people here seem to selectively read what they want to read. For instance:

    There you go with single pulley tensioners work fine again. Read on:

    I don't think a 16-year-old novice is going to know how all the tricks of the trade necessary to properly assemble a bike from parts. Asking a LBS to assemble it would increase the cost considerably....

    Whoa, no way! You're telling me that putting the chain below the tension pulley wouldn't engage enough teeth or give enough tension? You mean just like the single pulley tensioners you keep trying to...

    You're assuming I would thread the chain between the pulleys. What makes you think I wouldn't just cut off the bent tab and route the chain beneath both pulleys. I don't see you addressing any of the...

    I've got an M360 in my parts box if you're interested, in very good condition.

    So much for the assumption that bikeforum members are helpful.

    All of you saying "buy a tensioner, it's cheaper," seem to miss the point that the cheap single pulley tensioners don't work well. I've read plenty of reviews about them including on MTBR and here...

    A chain tensioner should have the cage at near maximum extension, which means it would be extremely difficult to pull the parallelogram to the rear. With low normal, I could pull the parallelogram to...
  16. List of low-normal/rapid rise rear derailleurs?

    Is there a list of all the models that had such reverse action, preferably with short cage? I'm looking for one to use as a ghetto IGH chain tensioner and don't know which models to look for. I...

    Oh, yes, I forgot. I strongly suggest taking Bike New York's free classes. They'll teach you a lot about riding and staying safe on city streets.

    As I wrote, I use Big Apples, which are great, durable, cushy road tires. So I'm not really concerned about 26" knobbies, but rather 26" road tires. It seems most of the so-called "comfort bikes"...

    The future of 26" wheels

    I don't really ride off road, but my absolute favorite bike does have 26" wheels, on which I have the fattest Schwalbe Big Apples. I've seen several posts in various subforums here where people said...

    Add my voice to the chorus. I really enjoyed Bicycling from 1980 through about 1993 or thereabouts. Never missed an issue, and didn't like the winter months when I'd have to wait two months for an...
