    I think the same thing. Omniums are weird.

    It's probably really difficult to properly torque a bottom bracket when you only weigh 85 pounds.

    I would not be working on a bike of that caliber (or any bike for that matter) without a torque wrench. 40nm feels like a **** load of torque if you don't have confirmation.

    Lol it's an issue I have.
    But really I wasn't entirely trying to be funny. I'm a big ass dude and it isn't the easiest task to drop that kind of torque. It would be a lot harder if I was tiny.

    Bet money he was using a little hex wrench too. Ain't no way he's torquing enough with the deck stacked that much against him.

    long shot, but ive got a reynolds 531 ronkit frame from the 70s with 120mm rear spacing, and im ordering a wheelset with a formula high flange rear hub spaced at 120 also. using a generic crankset like this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/290799865183?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649
    i know the same exact one is under several different brand names, same with the formula hubs.

    im not trying to play musical bb spindles too much, based off what little info i can give you, what do you think a good bb spindle length to start with would be? trying to just have my chainline real straight. gonna be using a 52t ring. should i just use the exact length spindle as the one it came with? it used to be a ten speed but a lot of the parts had been swapped out for ****tier ones or been mistreated over the years, so im just going to convert it. i know this is a really ******** question to ask but i figured maybe randomly from experiencing a similar situation you might know.

    Those SHUN cranksets use a 103mm JIS spindle for a 42mm(ish) chainline.

    cool, im probably going to use a tange or shimano JIS taper cartridge/sealed BB. so how do i know the chainline will be straight if i grip on a 103? the 120 formula flip/flop hub fits right into my rear dropouts, so i dont have the ability to use spacers to get the chainline straight.. but thats probably good cause i dont want my wheel dished all weird. im pretty new to all this stuff, sorry if i ask ******** questions. are you saying that the formula track hubs are for 42mm chainlines? also idk if a 52 ring would bang the frame or not on a 103 spindle. im gonna go take a rough measurement of the bb spindle that came with it.

    You're drastically overthinking this and would never need to do such a thing if you use the correct BB.

    Yes, as most track hubs are.

    If it hits the frame and you use a longer spindle to overcome this, your chainline will be off and there's no way around it. Use the right BB and a smaller chainring.

    Again, you need to use the spindle length appropriate for whatever new crankset you're using. What's in there now doesn't matter at all.

    Also - your run-on post made my head spin. Capital letters, line breaks and paragraphs exist for a reason.

    That's crap. You need to use an Italian-threaded lockring (Phil, Campy or Miche) but any English-threaded cog will work. The only thing I would advise against is using an EAI cog because they are really thick and your lockring may not have enough threads to engage properly. Some people have done it and the universe didn't implode but I wouldn't risk it on such a pricey hub.

    thats more along the lines of what he said now that i think about it, because i currently have EAI cog. Think i'll go with a phil cog and get it over with.

    If you want a 17t, I know a guy who is selling a very slightly used one for a great price.

    whats your take on: H+Son's EERO? ...& have you heard of anyone using brakes on them???

    Weight: 790 grams
    Material: 6061 Alloy
    Height: 43.33333 mm
    Size: 700c
    Drillings: 32 36 48
    Colors: Subject to change due to NASDAQ fluctuations and the RMB's appreciation.
    Joint: Welded
    ERD: 555 mm

    Eero is a response to the demand for a stronger rim. With a similar profile to Formation Face, Eero is wider, slightly higher and significantly heavier. The new design will accommodate wider tires and withstand much more abuse.

    The EERO was designed for trick riding and are very heavy. Like Formation Face rims, you can't use a brake on them without damaging the sidewalls.

    If you want deep H+Son rims but want to use brakes, get SL42s.

    I recently purchased a fixed gear online, but with 22.2cm bmx bars that I want to exchange for drop bars. What size drop bars should I be looking for?

    Are the Suzue hubs a significant upgrade from Novatec or would they be something you'd only buy if you were upgrading wheelsets already?

    They definitely look prettier. The overall quality and materials used are most likely a little nicer but I wouldn't go through the trouble of rebuilding your current wheelset just to switch hubs.

    Nice. I wanted to do the reverse of my current wheelset: silver hubs and nipples with black spokes and rims whenever I end up building up my next bike.
