    We have no way of getting individual arms. You could always just take it to a machine shop and have them helicoil it.

    Oh, and be sure to install your pedals correctly.

    2 part question for you Scrod,

    which one should I get a Cinelli Gazzetta or a Leader 722 Heritage? Currently riding a KiloTT got a bent frame from an accident so I want to slightly upgrade.

    and would you guys be able to get in the light blue Gazzetta or the white Leader 722 in 50/51cm for both?

    I would say get the one you like better.

    Everyone always asked about those blue Gazzettas. Those have been gone for about 4 years now.

    If you don't see an option available on our site as far as Leader product goes, it means we and Leader are both out of stock. They're expecting a huge restock in late August/early September.

    I've seen a blue one for sale a few months ago but regretfully didn't pick it up because i didn't need a new frame. Now that I damaged my current frame, I'm leaning towards a new frame and possibly a new build. I really want that white leader.

    Hey Scrod,

    I was hoping to pick up a Soma Rush frame before the Summer is gone. However I can't seem to wrap my head around why the frame can only fit 32mm tires w/o brakes. I can understand fenders but I don't see why brake calipers would have clearence issues for certain tire sizes. I just wanted to see this through since it seemed odd to me and I like brakes and 32s.

    Thanks for the help.

    It's pretty easy to understand, actually. Because the bottom of any given caliper will sit lower than the bottom of the fork crown/rear brake bridge, this will obviously lessen the tire clearance on any frame.

    The Rush is designed for standard-reach calipers. In order to have enough clearance for larger tires with brakes, a frame & fork would need to be designed specifically for use with a longer-reach caliper (or V brakes).

    Figured this was the best place to post this but I stopped in to grab some gear and a chat when I was in town a month and a half ago, easily the most pleasant experience I've had in a bike shop, and I feel pretty spoiled in PDX. Good man, Scrod.

    Alright, just wanted to make sure. Was just hoping somewhere along the way the word "fenders" accidently got switched with "brakes" and my preference for 32s and brakes could exist on the Rush frameset.

    Hey Scrod,

    What's the chance of getting the Conti GP 4000S II in 28C ? I see that size shown on the RG site as well as many other sites, including the Conti site, but I've yet to see it being available anywhere.

    If you mean the old one with the 1 1/8" steerer, it has been discontinued. The new I805 has a 1 1/8"-1.5" tapered steerer and is currently only available as part of the 2015 Leader framesets.

    The only carbon/aluminum fork Leader makes right now that's compatible with older frames is the I803.

    Hey Scrod,

    I mentioned this in the "Ask Scrod" thread, and thought this would be a more appropriate place to bring up wheelbuilding.

    Do you have any alternatives/suggestions to 24/28 spoke Kinlin XR270's? I was looking at Kinlin XR200's to satisfy my inner weightweenie (700 gram lighter wheelset than veeps... it's tempting!), but more importantly, I'm looking for something that would take daily commuting on Davis roads (which are very flat). I'd be riding around 70-100 miles per week.

    I currently run Velocity Deep V's laced 3x to Formula hubs.

    Thanks again!

    I'm planning on lacing a set up real soon.
    I was looking at XR200/XR270, since those rims are absurdly cheap here. I was trying to build an inexpensive, light(er) wheelset that could take abuse. Heh, if only it was that easy

    Thanks for the suggestion of XR19W, I'll look into it more!

    just wanted to thank retro for the order i just got in today.

    i ordered it on a friday that you guys said you would be away for inter bike i think it said, so i was ready to wait a little extra and was fine with that. but you guys had my order out the following saturday and it just came in on monday. i don't think i've had mail-order service that good for anything let alone bike parts no matter how small an order is. thanks for being so on top of it.

    We do, we're just not authorized to sell online. If you want one, let us know when you order your Thunderdome and we'll send you a separate invoice.

    Why can't you sell online? Do they only let certain shops do that?

    Because that's the way the industry works sometimes. We haven't been a CK dealer long enough to sell online yet.

    So its just a restriction King puts on their dealers just because? Ok then. That's weird.

    It's not weird at all. A lot of manufactures want to make sure you're an established account before allowing you certain liberties (like selling online). Even though the shop's been around for a few years now, we've only had an account with Chris King for five months.

    It keeps people from setting up "bike shop" accounts, buying a bunch of product and hawking it on sites like eBay and Amazon for less than MSRP/MAP.
