I don't find two-bolt seat clamps difficult to adjust.

On the two bolt clamp tighten the front bolt relative to the back bolt, to nose down. For more nose up, tighten the back bolt relative to the front bolt.


thanks. What did I do wrong to cause the spasm?

I received this awesome marigold bike into inventory at the shop today.

I do, however, dislike these things.

Always clamp the seatpost. They're easier to replace than a frame.

makes sense. Iíve only used it one other time. Should have known better.

I have fond memories of those old clamps. Really fun when all the guts came apart.

However, if you had 20 days of 92F highs, with less than an inch of rain (see post #14713), your grass wouldn't be growing great, either.

Same here. Our grass goes dormant under those conditions, too, and did from the first week of May and all of June but it has now re-awakened.

Pass.

Apart from inventory management, I was on wheel duty today. All I have to say, is that I dislike aluminum spoke nipples.

Alu nipples: possibly worse than "those things"

Local racer's wheel. In for a true. Wound up replacing four nipples.

That's one of the other things that I like about the 303S - brass nipples. When I had to send in the Assaults for the broken spoke, the nipple was broken, too; not apparent to me as to which caused the other.

Reminds me of the Nipple episode of Seinfeld.

My Tesch was the stiffest bike I ever rode. I don't have a pic of it but I found this. Right color wrong size.

Do you put something on aluminum nipples like Spoke Prep or grease?

What soil pH is good for lawns?

I never saw the sense in aluminum nipples. I have enough trouble with wheels.
