    No it did not. In U.S. English, the spelling, d-i-k-e, is indeed the standard one for the earthworks that you described. The other spelling in both British and U.S. English is a pejorative and not...

    I bought a vintage road racer from an old time LBS. I was able to re-use the tape on the new bars I installed. And re-use it again when I changed brake levers. I was seriously impressed. I asked the...

    Why Acid... it sounds as if you might prefer a little American style autochauvanism to what I assume you feel to be excessive personal scrutiny on the part of European employers. I am HWP,...

    Has it been mentioned that more than a few U.S. employers actively discriminate against car free job candidates. I know hiring managers personally who require not just valid drivers ID but actual...

    Police don't look the other way when someone that looks like me runs a stop sign. So, thank you very much, a LAW that says I can do exactly that would save me a lot of time and hassle since a cop...

    What part of:

    I wish I did. Its a close thing around here, but I see way too many goody-two shoes, letter of the law types in town. It's probably 50/50 but I erred on the side of civic obedience.

    I didn't realize there was a belt in the drivetrain. The sync "chain"? Clearly the drive to the rear wheel is conventional? I still think your problem is chainline. The length of your BB spindle is...

    A lot more than salt is added to cooking wine. Nasty stuff. Is it me or is the o.p. a tad defensive. Probably just me... but I am pretty right on about these things. Yep... classic guilty conscience....
