Correct - most of the guys that ride in SoMo are much more hard-core than me and the Fargo...no suspension and I don't bounce like I used to.

am I hack for not messing with the sram chain 'master link' and just using my chain punch on it?

Looks familiar....




And later...

@ Pierce: yeah yer being a hack. The whole point of the master link chains is that you don't need a chain tool to take em off an put em back on.
T-day ride this AM. Was sposed to go out to Thoroughfare Gap and then come back thru Airlie. Slept too late for that, so I decided to go lookin for Shenandoah Path Rd. ...an realized I didn't have time for that either! So I ended up on a shorter loop. Still a good 1:45 with a trio of intervals tossed in cause I was runnin late for levin for dinner. Turns out I didn't hafta worry bout it cause dinner's not on the table yet.
Any of yall wanna get in on a Gore Tex group buy? I'm tryin to get the shop to become a dealer... PM me for details if yer innerested

well, I read you're supposed to replace the clip each time you take it off, and I didn't have a spare clip handy.

reminds me, I've got a scrap of a chain left on my worktable, I need to see if its the same SRAM as the chain on the kid's bike, and use a couple links to lengthen his chain.


hey, that silver trek, what model is that? you can look up the serial # stamped on the BB on www.vintage-trek.com to find out model and year. Ian's is a 1977 TX300, 2nd year they were in business. Is that a 27" frame with 700c wheels, and if so, how did you get the brakes to reach the rims?

I dunno about the 10 speed stuff, but I've reused 9-speed power links plenty of times with no ill effect.

X2, it is only the 10sp SRAM that you can NOT reuse the links. 10 speed KMC chains are fine, they're links are reusable. if you look, you will see a lot of KMC 10 Speed chains on the Specialized bikes for 2011, with sram and shimano drivetrains.

S'what I thought. I've broken my 9sp stuff and put it back together without issue lots of times. I *hear* about guys doing it with their 10sp chains too, but SRAM sez specifically not to do it.

They say not to do it on the 10sp stuff but I don't see much of a difference between the 9sp and the 10sp master links. But for the cost of a master link I don't see any reason to risk destroying a derailleur of a frame.

Issat sposed to be OR a frame?

Found a Syncros stem on ebay (new) just like the ones I had the last time I had a Specialized of the vintage I'm building up. Can't wait to get it built and rolling under its own power. In theory, its a 'rain and/or trainer bike' but I know how I am and am prolly gonna find more SPD-Sls and add it to the 'ride it everyday' fleet.

there's some flake in it, but not much.

it's a 1978/79 frame.

I did the string thing on the trek, from the rear dropout, around the head tube, and to the other rear dropout. at the seat tube, it was 27mm on the DS and 30mm on the NDS.

measuring the photo, rear-seattube is 140, while rear to headset was 340. seat tube to headset is 200.

so... at the dropout thats 1.7:1 of 1/2 of the 3mm error, or 2.5mm. so I think I need to coldset both stays by 2.5mm towards the drive side.

did I get the math right?

A drivetrain combo that shifts brilliantly on my '11 Stumpy, I might add.

Yea, the "r" and "f" are pretty close together on a keyboard.
