Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I typically use Finish Line ceramic grease but any lithium or marine grease will work just as well.

Cool, got a Home Depot gift card for Christmas, I'll go buy some grease with it. Thanks.

In terms of components, where do you think I should start to drop weight on the CAAD10? (aside from wheels...)

a 1/8th chain is compatible with a 3/32 chainring and cog right? Not the other way around?

I have some Zefal plastic toe clips that still are not large enough in the toe box. Local bike shop said that just by riding, it will enlarge the toe box. I did not think resin would stretch. Does that sound correct?

The shop said that metal would be worse for the toe box. But I have seen people talking about bending the metal clips. I would think that if you can bend them, then the MKS deep clips would be a good candidate for modification if I need a bigger box. Does that sound correct?

i run a 3/32" drive train & am pretty sure that it is the 810 that comes in 3/32

if you are going to carry kmc k810sl at a decent price you can consider 1 sold...

Brain fart. The 3/32" version is called the 810-SL.

Scrod,

The Kagero is touted as a limited edition, limited stock deal. I was curious if you knew what the productions numbers are roughly?

I'm not sure but I could find out. For some reason the number 600 sticks out but that may be something I made up.

No big deal, I was just curious since I don't think I'd seen it on the internet anywhere.

Is the Park BBT-19 the tool used to install/remove GXP bottom brackets for Sram Omniums? Just want to double check.


Also, on a scale of 1-10 (10 being absolutely necessary) how crucial is it to use a torque wrench when installing bottom brackets and cranks?

scrod do you know why my bike would make a rattling noise.

I have a PW cog on the 722, and I know they're loud but this is different. Like I'll hit some bumps and it sounds like I'm rattling change in my pocket. I've never heard a noise like this, so often, before. wabi wheels, omniums cranks, pw cog/lr, was thinking it might be the chainline?

I've used a torque wrench but I've gotten to a point where I go by feel. GXP stuff is pretty easy because it bottoms out when it's tight enough.

Chainline would be the least likely cause.

Is there a loose piece of metal inside your frame? My 725 had a small shard of aluminum inside it that drove me ****ing nuts until I finally took my whole bike apart and shook it out.
