Does anyody recognise the Headset?
I think, it's still one of the best headsets ever made.






Looks like Mavic to me. without looking at it closely.

Nice collection of stuff.

I should know what they look like! I'm STILL pissed at myself for screwing mine up. Still have it in my bin o' parts cause I'm hoping that I can use it on something.

Stick's bike has an American Classic Tri-lock on it. IMO as good or better than Chris King HS-s

No ride on Saturday IOM TT with friends took the day. As did watching this:
Corsair

But, Sunday I got in a big, (for me) climb and a bit of a ride. 16.5 miles beginning the ride to the top of my hill. About 3/4 mile to the top from the garage, and a 17% grade. I did not have to stop, but considering puking...

The rest of the ride was my usual flat river trail ride, though I did stop at the park for a nature break and had some go beads or gummybear go juice thingies. Those worked great.

This week will be weak on riding with getting ready to travel for a bit. But, I expect to be back on the pushbikes big in a couple of weeks. Feels great to be back on that saddle.

Just don't tell her that some of those cost as much as a new moto.

my last two rides, I've noticed that when I stand up on the pedals, I hear something rubbing. I talked to a friend who's very familiar with bikes, and said the same thing happened with his old Specialized Epic. He said it's likely the bottom bracket flexing, and something's rubbing against the front derailleur.

anybody else had a similar experience?

is ignoring it the best policy?

does it sound like the chain rubbing, and does tweaking the front derailleur position with the shift levels affect this rubbing?

Ignoring it is NEVER the way to go. If yer buddy don't know what it is, take yer bike to someone that does

Javarilla,

How are you liking the Big Apples? I'm on the fence on which commuter tires I want to get for my 29er. I hear the apples are awesome but their quite pricey.

I said buddy, but maybe I should have clarified: its a partner at the accounting firm I work at. However, he's been riding for over 30 years, and is a pretty good bike mechanic.

it sounds to me like a brake rubbing, but he said it was unlikely.

Is this a sign I'm too heavy for the frame?

more likely that you're in too tall of a gear for the riding conditions.

I seem to have very limited play in the front derailleur. Should I see if I have the same problem on the little wheel up front?

I like 'em, but...

On a Salsa, with a Big Apples, and the Brooks B-17, a high cadence sets up an amusing bounce affect...

And while you'll roll over everything in comfort and style, you won't accelerate with much aplomb...

And, while you're visible from the side at night due to that nice wide retro-reflective sidewall, you won't fit in your average bike stand.

Rolling resistence is minimal.

You're quiet as a mouse as compared to knobbies.

I'm a fan.
