I picked up this Ron Stout frame recently and built up a fixie. This is #7451 - anyone know what to make of that? The seller said it was from the 70's, so I think it might be #51 from '74. The...

Ron Stout

This is the only mention of Ron Stout on this forum, and one of few on the internet. From what I read, he was a custom frame builder in Salt Lake in the 80's and 90's. I picked up a frame and the...

By electro-mechanical drivetrain, are you talking about a system where you generate electricity with the cranks and power a motor in the wheel? If you could beat the efficiency of a chain based...

Lube n00b

I cleaned and re-lubed my chain, then went for a long ride in the rain and the lube did not last. Does anyone have a lube they recommend for riding in the rain?

I found a listing on Bike Recyclery for a vintage Chris King 1" 2Nut that looks exactly the same, so scratch the FSA Duron question. Looks like my cups are the vintage 2Nut and the top is for...

Alright.. I have a mixed headset. The cups are from an older no-logo version and the adjusting ring broke and was replaced with a newer GripNut with collet - the old one is just an adjusting ring and...

Hi, I have a 1" Chris King GripNut with a bit of play when I rock forward and back, even if it's tightened to the point of stiffness while turning. I flipped the fork around to test the cups, but had...

You're missing the point. A 10 speed Dura Ace shifter hacked on to a 9 speed bike may shift your gears, but I can't imagine that it would perform better than a 9 speed tiagra.

Yup, by the time I really want to buy that much upgrade, I'll probably get a nicer bike and keep this as my trainer/commuter. Nice bonus for myself next time I switch jobs.

Thanks Jake, pulled the trigger on the ultegra 6600 (left). Dunno why it was cheaper than a 105 or tiagra, but thanks ebay! I think I would really appreciate a 10 speed upgrade, but I don't want to...

I'm just talking about the left shifter. Sorry, think I forgot to mention that.

After reading up a bunch on it, I think my issues are more with gear ratios than with shifting. Either way I'd like to replace the broken shifter with something more durable.

Will an ultegra...

I'm happy with the tiagra shifter/105 rear, but the front tiagra set never shifted that great. How much of that is caused by my chainring ratio, 50/34?

I just want to replace the left shifter,...

I really don't want anything that will be poorly compatible with the setup. For me to upgrade to 105 shifters, i'd have to replace my rear cassette, chain, and possibly FD? What are my other...

Will new 105 shifters work on a 2x9?

I broke a shifter (Tiagra), so I want to replace them with the new 105's. Shimano's compatibility chart shows that it will work with my 105 rear on a 10 speed, but mine is 9. It also doesn't...
