If he works in a shop, take the bike in and be a paying customer. If he fucks it he (the shop) has to replace it. Simple. If not its up to you what to do. Do the cranks need to ...

No no Moose, you've heard it all wrong. Black Sabbath is good wholesome family music. It's Justin Bieber who is related to satan. And he's the mofo that you need to have nothing...

Ha ha. What's a Black Sabbath? I won't be surprised if some have at least thought that.

I hate sloping top tubes too. That's why I never ride up hills.

Make sure you get single speed levers. They don't have the shifter mech's inside. Cheaper too. I've used Shimano BLR600, similar to the old 600ultegra tri colour levers from t...

Cinelli Mash Parallax need of a front brake

No arguments with the costs involved to change to discs. Just putting the option out there.

You can change the set up and use disc brakes. No rim wear ever. Or a coaster brake.

Conflicting information in the links, maybe to keep the chat rooms and forums buzzing. I'm no NJS expert, but going by the already available NJS approved cranks, I can't see t...

I'm not disputing the simplicity or difficulty of a threaded/quill setup. It was more a question of why. I had road bikes and BMXs for 8 or so years before Ahead headsets (thr...

What's a Google? Isn't it something you wear when swimming in a Poool.

You do what you can afford. Like mentioned in the other thread. The quill will look better on your bike. Old school with a modern drive train. 26mm v 31.8mm. It's all market...

The winter time riding stories from you guys makes me cringe. We've just had our winter here. The Gold Coast is sub tropical so it doesn't really get too cold. (If you go furthe...

I don't understand this thing for threaded forks. Yes, for an old school bike, or built to specifications (NJS). Quill stems are more elegant too. But why go backwards? Thread...

Ha ha. Man I couldn't see anything either. I'm just taking the piss. However the bike stand in the photo is a stabilizer. Any fins or gimmicks won't make ounce of difference.

Definetly stabilizers.

It's the lateral free play that your shoes have when clipped into the pedals. How the heel of the shoe can move left or right before it disengages. The early shoe/pedal combos...

Race the centurion as it is. Ok, maybe change the pedals and tyres. A good service so it runs well. No chain jumping or changing issues. Tighten up the spokes so there's less ...

Are the loose bearings in a cage? They should be so they don't rub against each other and to keep them evenly spaced around the cup and cone. If the bearings are dropped into th...

Too good to be true. Then it's not true. It has stolen all over it. Read the ad. If he was legit he would said what's on the bike and more info about it. Not some shit talk. ...

Wow! Make sure there's no fingerprints before the clear. I've used 'autosol' for polishing parts. They do dull and then require more polishing.

Yeah I know that. Ridingfixed said that he assembled his cranks/BB (so as not to lose any parts) and stored them in his garage for a month before putting them on his bike. Now...

Sheldon said that. Asian made cranks are generally JIS except older DA and NJS which are ISO. The taper is the same angle. JIS are further up the taper and ISO is further down...
