    aluminum ones are easy to break if you don't know what you're doing. don't put more than a few pound inches of torque on one at a time and use a lug nut star pattern to evenly distribute the load.

    even then, aluminum isn't necessarily worth the weight it will save for crank bolts. that's one place where steel weight is worth the strength.

    i bought tubes.
    i had to, because lying in bed half asleep last night i was awoken by a loud "BANG!" from my bike, which happened to be five feet from my bed. crazy, because it wasn't a slow leak and i had ridden on the wheel for two days just fine. then sitting around, it blows with a millimeter long V shaped tear right where the rim tape is on the very bottom of the tube next to the stem. patch fails, nothing stuck to the tape or inside the wheel... just up and exploded.

    if i was a baller, i'd buy some avid shorty ultimates and a mw vandal. my bags and breaks are driving me crazy.

    oh, and i bought a skink copy light from deal extreme and some rechargable aaa's. they'll get here in a week or two.

    must have been the quality. ive had aluminum in my fixed gear cranks for a year and they have been removed several times. the 1994 campagnolo road cranks i have still have their oem aluminum bolts and they have been apart countless times for different ring and bike setups. despite everything, they could almost be passed off as NOS.

    Building up a track tandem. Sugino Mighty 170mm crankset 110bcd. Sugino 1/8" 39 tooth BMX chainrings for timing rings (hope they're round!) Nitto B123 NJS bars captain, B125 Stoker. Velocity Pro Elite tubular rims on Phil Wood hubs, 40 rear, 36 front. MKS Sylvan track pedals, black Captain, pink Stoker. Still need 1/8" 48 tooth drive chainring and a pair of 27.2 seatposts. Will probably go with Conti Sprinters.

    I am so lucky to find a pair of PD-5500 at the bike co-op today, however, I need to track down the cleats.

    they arrived yesterday. Put them on, took them out for a spin, and they felt GREAT. Worked perfectly with the GR-9's. Just using the mounting bolts to hold it in place. I might need to get longer bolts eventually, when the leather gets softer, but for now, the short ones are holding fine. Gave it some good crankin' and it held perfectly.






    already got em scuffed

    best thing about the crane bell is you can put it on a headset spacer mount. one bell, two bikes.

    I have a bell mount made for a 1" threaded headset sitting in my toolbox. If you want it, it's yours.

    Bought the eighth inch crank for $30 the day after thanksgiving. Too good to pass up. The ring is a little out of round... but so far so good.

    essentially new, unbranded, silver avid ultimate linear-pull brake levers. yes, they are the proverbial bees' knees. perfection. front pulls an avid bb7 mechanical disk, rear a set of ultimate v's, on a ti kona 26" SS conversion. and that's a fixed/free rear hub...and i've got a spare cog...hmm...
