Love it. So all I have to take with me is my chain tool, which is always in my backpack anyway.

Sorta.

Its like triage for people: first do the easiest fix. Lots of times its the hanger. Then move on to the more interesting things like making a SS, using the bottle cage bolts to hold a broken shifter cable in place, etc.

Unfortunately, a stick in the chain and spokes, at the same time, doesn't break the hanger. Ask my MTB partner. He's done it twice.

When is your next trip down here? The Biology trails at Collegedale are turning into a very nice system. Many improvement have been made since they opened last winter.

arggh, telephone and internet went out sunday early AM. just came back...

yesterday, I swapped my 122.5 stock BB for a UN55 110mm, and yup, my math was spot on.

middle ring is exactly halfway between gear 4 and 5 (out of 8), and with the front derailleur readjusted into sanity, it now shifts all gears, and the only ones that make any noise are the crossover 48:26 (both big gears) and 28:13 (both small).

Running in the gears you /should/ be running, the machined alloy chainrings are MUCH quieter than the stock stamped steel ones.

now, if it just stops raining long enough for me to get out and do a 10-15miler as a shakedown.

Not sure.

I haven't been on that trail system, as I only had a couple days, the last time I was down there.

Campy and Shimano have slightly different tapers, so says the late, great Sheldon Brown;

(if you want a good condition 10 spd Campy crank, pm me, we can maybe work something out, I don't have a BB though).

Do you guys face your BB's and head-tubes when building up a bike?

if I was building a new frame, I definitely would do the headset. With a cartridge BB, its less neccessary.. so far, I've only rebuilt existing bikes, and I've not faced the BB and not yet had to replace a headset.

Any more? Not needed.

BB30 (and other assorted new 'standards') and bearings that sit directly in the head tube means is ain't necessary.

Prior to that? Nope.

I'm just finishing a build(first one) and had the head-tubes and BB done. Bare frame, doesn't hurt. The only thing I couldn't have done was the drive side BB shell. It has an ISCG plate and I was told he didn't have the right tool to do it. The facing tool was too wide. He had never seen one though so he may have been mistaken. I went ahead and built it up anyway. Hoping I don't have any issues because my BB is external.
