    a pet peeve of mine

    I'm really tired of people referring to "Deep Vs" as if rims=wheels.

    Don't mind me. I'm old and cranky. Carry on.

    Hey, it's better than people who call them tires. See: Craigslist ads.

    you're right! From here on out I decree that no one should refer to their wheels without listing rims, hubs, spokes (brand, gauge, material, number and pattern) and nipples. Also if you could mention what type of rim strip you are using, that would be good.

    I'll start: I think it's time to true my Black anodized Open Pros laced 3 cross with 32 stainless steel 14/15/14 gauge double butted wheelsmith spokes and brass nipples to a Suzue Promax sealed bearing front, and Miche rear hubs with Velox cloth rim tape.

    TrackENDS. You are not "dropping out" of anything, and therefore, not a "dropout".

    People who snottily insist it's a "saddle" not a "seat," but are happy to say "seatpost" or "seat tube"

    Oh sorry, I dipped the ends in Boesheild, and tuned the spokes to an A with my guitar tuner.

    That's because it is a saddle. Seats are on recumbents.

    So what does the seat post hold up? Or do you call it a saddle post?

    Yes. when you clamp the saddlepost into the saddle tube, be sure to grease it, and make sure it is down at least below the saddlestays in the saddle cluster.

    I mean, I don't care if you call it a saddle, it's the people who insist that it's the only correct term that bug me.

    My pet peeve is Schwinns. They made a million bikes, in a million models, over the last million years, and they all suck. Ugly slack fking geometry, crappy parts, gaspipe. I'm just angry to come home to see all these "sweet bikes" my brother picked up and they're rusted out 50lbs pos astabula havin varsitys.
    this bike is a pipecleaner

    Yeah same... if it's not Paramount, I don't really care about it. The Schwinn family did do a lot for the bicycle industry though.

    When I first started getting into bikes, Schwinn was all I really knew.
