Wow, I've been a member since 2008 and I can't even quote a post with a photo in it....

Anyway, yes, the second photo is the one I was trying to post earlier. If you have the bracket attached to...

I'm still blocked from posting a photo, but yes, trying to retrofit a modern vintage-style light. It's hard to explain, but the connector is basically a metal loop, but I could remove that an add the...

Looking for front light/lamp bracket (?)

Hi everyone,
Recently bought a 1971 Raleigh Sports. It has the Raleigh Heron bracket attached to the headset, but it looks like there's another bracket or sleeve that was used to attach lights to...

I went to three bike shops here in San Francisco-- including the aforementioned Freewheel on Valencia-- and no threadless stems in 48mm. Weird no? Of course then I decided I had to have them and...

So, with removable core tubes, I'm assuming the whole valve stem is replaceable as opposed to the little metal bit that keeps the air in? Again, I've never seen/noticed this before so I'm just trying...

So, wheels like you're referring to require stems longer than 60mm? Otherwise I'm not sure why you wouldn't just buy tubes in the appropriate length.

Also, what I'm hearing is I don't need to...

Feeling dumb: Removable valve cores?

Hi,
I've been on a search for new Presta tubes: 700c, 18-23, 48mm smooth stems! You'd be surprised at how hard this has been.

Now I'm seeing that there are tubes with fixed and removable cores....

Picked a tire (Michelin Krylion), width question

Hi,
My Conti Gatorskin Ultra front tire is looking pretty ragged and I've heard good things about the Krylion tires so I thought I'd check them out. I'd convinced myself that I should go with the...

Thanks for the input so far. My post was a little random. I'm digging my new frame but I haven't sorted out the stem and bar situation yet, hence the frustration.

The way I understand it, a...

Frustrated: Should I go back to threaded?

Hi,
I recently bought a KHS Aero Track with a threaded fork converted to threadless. The (crappy) threadless stem has a seriously aggressive angle which doesn't suit my street riding and looks...

I just picked up an extra long 26.8 mm mountain bike post on eBay for 6 clams. A little investigation shows this size is not super-hard to find although I'm sure there are more options in another...

How much arch needed in my front brake cable and housing?

Total noob question but:

How much arch is really needed for a brake cable and housing, especially in the front? I use a basic mountain style lever so the cable can be *really* short. I generally...

Good to know. No, it doesn't seem like much difference. Is this size still readily available from bike shops?
Anything special I should know about getting a new seat post? Sounds stupid but I really...

I just picked up a KHS Aero Track/Aerotrack frame. Based on what I see on the bike now (and Sheldon Brown's seat post database), the frame is made for a 26.8mm seat post. It looks like 27.2 is a more...
