Karma or Coincidence?

Controversial topic here! Do you believe in karma or coincidence? Maybe both? Do you find that events/situations happen for a reason or just at an oddly given time?

Crank arms.. crank arms... Headache.

Having a difficult time browsing the web to find the right set of crank arms. I decided to get a new bracket, because the one I got is a tad too long. I currently have a 117mm, but dropping down to a...

83 gear inches huh? Well I did look at a chart yesterday, I was figuring what lower number I should go into. I'll try the 70. Thank you! Some charts are different with the measurement.

I believe the second cog gear on the freewheel may just be a 16T. I could place the chain onto it and it hopefully won't slide off since there is no derailleur on it. Either way I have to get a new...

Deciding on a single speed gear ratio!

I have an old road bike that I fixed up. Replaced a bunch of parts on it. It used to be a 12 speed, but since I only cruise around the park I decided to leave it on one speed. I had bought a new...

Are 26" wheels more common than 700c? I read that in some article. Aside from that I had no luck with Craigslist... Found some decent ones but were rather vintage and $300+ .. Upon further research,...

Luckily I am mechanically inclined. Lots of tools in the garage, so no issue there. I wouldn't mind a 3 speed. I find myself jumping into this too quickly. Need to research more on sizing, spacing...
