    Thanks. I should have mentioned that I'd like to keep it in the $30-40 range or less if possible. I do have a couple of 1 mm spacers laying around, and I have wanted to try a sealed bearing headset though...

    Would The Sci Guy be experiencing what he is if his wheel were somehow sliding toward his crankset, decreasing the distance and, thus, introducing slack into his chain?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Wait, are you now asking about the number of points of engagement in a freewheel?

    The rims Miche uses on the Pistard wheelset are Ambrosio Pistas. They are excellent.

    You answered my next question regarding ambrosio and miche pista/pistard wheel set.
    I haven't decided if I'm having another front tb14 wheel built to match the rear or drop the rear tb and get the ambrosio pista wheelset.

    would be on a purple pake rr with black lugged fork and components.

    just dont know what to do. most places local quote about 140 or so for a front wheel where as ive seen the ambrosio pista set for around 250.

    It's been a few years since the 721 included a collar.

    Yes, it's 31.8mm.

    dear mr. scrod,

    if im not mistaken, retrogression used to carry a compact drop with a clamp section for old school 26.0 quill stems. it may have been made by civia or soma but im not sure. anyways, i need one now. silver in a 420mm width. do you no longer carry this item?

    Hey Scrod,

    What do you think about the integrated clamp design on the new 725's? I'm debating whether or not to stick with 2014 or go for the newer frame.

    Thanks!

    We still have the Soma HWY ONE on the site but available sizes are all over the place until Soma makes more.

    It's a good design but it looks a little too "futuristic" for my taste.

    What's your opinion on Colossi? Specifically the Low Pro model.Any thoughts or experience with them?

    Colossi makes very good frames. A lot of the frames coming from pretty big name companies are actually manufactured in the Colossi factory (I can't say which ones but you can probably figure it out with a little bit of research).

    I've seen the Low Pro and it's a cool frame. The quality is definitely there.

    Scrods, I am looking at buying a new frame and in the description it says that the bottom bracket shell is best suited for 107mm bb. I am hell bent on getting Sugino 75s for this build which suggests a 109.5mm bb. 2.5mm is pretty marginal, but will this be an issue in any way?

    That makes absolutely no sense. The BB spindle length is always determined by the crankset being used, not the frame.

    I thought it was a bit odd that in the frame description it stated that a 107mm bb would work best with the frame....

    Hey Scrod, do you know if the 722 Heritage you guys are restocking on in August/September if they are a 2015 model? or will it be restocked with the 2013/2014 Heritage. Because I was planning to order from you guys but you guys are out of my size at the moment, I stopped by 2 local bike shops (not that local) and they said they can order the white Heritage 722 but they would charge me $40 for the "custom order shipping" not including tax so I held off for the moment. And I was wondering if theres a new 722 Heritage model coming out or not (or new colors).

    also whats the difference between a 722 Heritage and a 722TS Heritage? Thanks in advance Scrod.
