    The "new version" is the Heritage Edition.

    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.

    Score. I want to keep it budget friendly for now. How are the dimenson risers? I guess it doesn't really matter, she's skinny as hell and not very powerful, not like she'll flex them. Hahaha I thought the URBANASSULTWTFBBQ were 31.8 all the way through. I am the crazies. You can tell I don't run risers at all on anything, but the spare bike I have is a bit long so I think risers will fix that for her. (yeah yeah fitment calculator).

    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.

    They had a Sugino GT stamp on them, never heard of/seen this crankset before.

    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?

    Nvm, they're Sugino AT: http://sheldonbrown.com/bbsize.html#sugino

    115.5 + 2 mm spacer Square 42.5 139 110/74 Shimano UN-73 BB.

    Is the standard fixed gear rear spacing 42.5? This **** is confusing brah.

    I was thinking you'd be using a new crankset, which is why I said you should just use the correct BB for that crankset.

    Eh, I may just replace them at a later date. Maybe I'll just have the shop service the current one so she can get out on the road. No sense in getting nice cranks if she decides not to ride much after all.

    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.

    Cut means less trouble for me. I'm assuming their cut to a manageable, normal length, to fit the grips and brake levers?

    Are the Dimension risers the same ones you sold me in silver a while back? You had them in multiple colors?

    I think they might be. So many things are branded and re-branded by everyone, it's hard to tell.

    Sorry Jaytron, I missed that. Between this and the 'Ask Scrod' thread, it's hard to keep track.

    nbd sir.

    Let me know when you shoot me an invoice for the bars! I hope the Mrs. clears the standover for this bike, she's not much shorter than me with long legs so we should be good.

    I want hubs.

    24h front/ 32h rear
    Sealed bearings
    Light
    Silver

    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.
