ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.
I want to get risers for my sqrl. Leader risers vs the Nittos, wat say t3h scrod?
Also, are there OURYS that fit bars this skinny? I don't know the actual size that OURY grips are supposed to be on, but I've seen them on 31.8 bars so uhhhh
Also: Is there only one type of Bern helmet for women? Is there an actual difference? HAhaha

Dude, there are no riser bars that are 31.8 all the way through. That would be nuts!
Typical width of the grip area on all risers is 22.2mm.
If you don't want to spend a lot, I have some Dimension risers hanging around at the shop in both black and silver.
I edited a helmut question up top, what say you sir?
OH are there any spacers I can use/install to change the spacing on an axle from 120->130 without the need of special tools? I also need a cartridge type BB, but I sure as hell don't know what kind of chainline this thing has. Maybe I'll do LBS for that, because I have to have them take this crazy BB off.
I thiiiiink that's all I need.
The Dimension risers have a little more backsweep but are comfortable and plenty stiff enough. I have a set on my rain bike and I'm a beast. I think we even have a set around here that are cut to a width of around 17" that were on one of Angie's bikes a while back.
Bern makes a few womens helmets but the Berkeley is the best one. The only difference between the womens and mens helmets are the womens ones come in size XS and have girly-looking decals (which can be removed).
If you don't want to mess with cone wrenches and all that, you could always just use the spacers as washers on the inside of the dropout but that's janky. Your lbs should only charge a few bucks to add spacers.
What crankset are you using? If the BB shell is 68mm and the rear wheel is spaced correctly for the frame, use whatever the crankset typically calls for.
Ninja edit: Looks like they're hella old from like 1980. Quick google search says 113mm to accept a 42.5 chainline (I know nothing about chainlines and stuff) The C&V guys seem to say they're alright cranks.
Not so ninja edit: I'm going to assume that this old 70's schwinn is a 68mm BB shell. More research shows that it may not be 113mm. I now have no idea. Is there any way you can find out for me? Or can I measure the current BB while it is installed?
Also, how the hell do I take this old BB off, I only have a LR wrench, I think that'll do it?

Shoot me a PM with how much you want for the dimension bars, what color are they? I need to pick up some other stuff from you as well. 17t freewheel, and grips for hers, bar end plugs for my bike.

The Dia Compe Shot Lever takes a mountain brake cable type?
I want hubs.
24h front/ 32h rear
The front can even be a road hub, but I'd prefer it to be nutted (can I convert a QR to nuts?)
Tell me what to get, I'll send you money.
