    Haha Sounds like a good night, but definitely smart to call it quits.
    I did the whole blurry vision city ride one night after drinking all day at a festival then heading downtown. It was fun but a bit too stupid to do on a regular basis. 2-3 pints and I'm happy to ride around for a few hours.

    It's actually heavier than normal tires and tubes. The tires are about 100g heavier each, and sealant is another 50g. They just handle so nice, and I love being able to run 23s at 80psi. Comfy as hell.

    Yes, it's painted over just like Cinelli's carbon track forks. All you need to do is (carefully) drill through the existing hole in the back of the fork to remove it.

    Renovatio page says seat post size is 31.6, seeing lots of Thomson Elites being used, the right size be the 287 not the 330??
    Also, you know the max tyre size that'll fit the Reno? Been digging around for answers but a guess of 25 seems to be the best answer I can find.

    cheers

    The 287 and 330 you are referring to are lengths that 27.2 Thomson seat posts come in and have absolutely nothing to do with diameter. The shortest post Thomson makes having a 31.6mm is 367mm.

    The Renovatio will fit a 25c in front and as big as some 28c tires in the rear.

    Hey Scrod,

    1) Will a 700x32c tire like a Pasela PT fit properly on a Velo Orange Grand Cru track wheel ? How wide are those rims, anyway ? Also, is it possible to replace the rear axle with a shorter one, so that there isn't a bunch of extra axle extending past the axle nuts when installed in a frame with 120mm dropout spacing ?

    2) How long is the straight outer grip section on the Nitto B260-AA riser bar ?

    TIA - TT

    VO PBP rims measure 19mm on the outside and 13.2mm inside. According to their site they can handle up to 32c tires.

    Not sure of the exact measurement on those bars (and I'm not at the shop to measure) but it's more than enough to mount a lever next to an Oury grip before the bend.

    Looking to maybe build a SS bike here in Cambodia and want something that will handle a larger 700c tire. Looking to run some PANARACER 700x42c TOUR GUARD Road Bike tires.
    What frame would you recommend that would fit these?

    There is no such tire as a Tour Guard TG, however, there is a Tourguard tire that is available up to 42mm width. It is massively heavy, weighing 870g in the regular model, and 1000g in the Plus model which has extra puncture protection. You will need to find a SS cyclocross style frame, such as the Surly Cross-Check SS to fit these tires. That frame also requires a 130-135mm rear hub.

    He's talking about the Pasela TourGuard, now known as the Pasela PT. They're not very heavy at all and do come in a folding version in some sizes.

    For 42c clearance you're going to need a cross frame as TT suggested. Even the Surly Steamroller only has clearance for up to 38cmm

    Scrod how do you like Novatec hubs? Any problems with the hollow axles? Novatec/Joytec had a bad reputation for awhile but seems like they've gotten better maybe stepped up the QC? Can you get the version of their hubs with the solid flange?

    Novatech are better than Formula ... but not enough to worry about. They're both a reasonable value, reasonably priced hub. Not rubbish, nothing special. [\ Scrod (but better looking ) ]
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    Please stop with the "/scrod" stuff. There's an entire forum here for everyone else to answer questions.

    Novatec/Joytech, like Formula, make a fairly wide range of hubs - some good and some bad. The track hubs on our site (which are the only ones we can currently get) have bearings, hardware and axles better than found on common Formula track hubs and are amazing for the price.

    I'm pretty sure the solid flange version has loose-ball bearings and I have no direct experience with them.

    Hey Scrod, I just realized that when I get my new Soma Rush frameset, it will be the first time in over 30 years that I've needed to cut a threaded fork steerer tube. I know that when I cut the last one I used a hacksaw, but I wondered if it would be possible or even advisable to use a pipe cutter. How exactly do you do this ? I was thinking that if I use a hacksaw, I could first screw on some old headset parts to act as a guide to get a square cut, and to help reform the threads when they were removed after cutting.
