Ok- new project bike for me- I haven't ridden seriously for a few years, but I know I will at some point. Anyway, I couldn't pass up a early 90s Klein Quantum frameset (although I probably should have).

If you know kleins, you know about weird proprietary headsets and bottom brackets. The headset seems to have been taken care of (it's got a cane creek threadless headset and a carbon fork). The bottom bracket has pressed in bearings and a square taper spindle, so I guess I need to find a crankset that works with this spindle, or find some sort of retrofit/conversion.

Any brilliant ideas? Anyone got an old crankset made for a square taper/120mm bottom bracket, triple preferably?

You *may* be in luck... Cannondale and some others have come out with a BB design that *may* fit yer Klein. BB30 I think they call it. Check it out at a Cannonball dealer near you. Failing that, www.ChucksBikes.com has some square-taper carbon cranks for fairly inexpensive.

Sugino makes some nice square taper cranks.

Just got the racks finished today. My girlfriend made them. They come apart for traveling. We leave for our baja tour in three weeks!

I finally got out for a ride after work the other night along the bike path. Dark and cold. This was my first real dark ride since forever. When I moved out here eleven years ago I gave away my lights. Never had the time or inclination to get out there.
But, I just had to ride, so I hopped on the old steed and headed out.

Damn cold, at least there was no wind. OK, not that cold when compared to real cold, but for an old softy here in the OC, it was cold. My nose was running pretty good and my toes went Popsicle in an hour of cranking. It'll be another few days before I can get back to the push bike again. But it felt good to be out there.

Darkness,

Those are some very nice looking bicycle racks. I didn't look at anything but the one picture. Is this something she makes for everyone, or just something she wanted to do for her bike and your bike?

Any singlespeed ideas

Sold my F/S rockhopper last year along with the full carbon Prologue. I am down to an old steel hybrid Mongoose with a bent rear triangle.
For some reason I have an itch for a single speed, front susp. mtn bike (with discs of course) Anyone riding one something like this?

Ragbrai

RAGBRAI is having an overnight stay in my home town. Maybe I should ride a couple of days of it.
