    Longer stems

    A stem is a metaphor for a phallus...why RC rides a bike with a short stem. Anything longer and RC is subconsciously reminded of his shortcoming. RC...I have to say, I would have to see your diploma before I would ever believe you were an engineer...lol. Must have been a community college...

    Torque

    Isn't that the problem Bore-troll?...you have taken too many pills...lol. You don't even know what a box a.k.a. paradigm is let alone think outside of one.:p Engineers create the boxes you stooge...you only wonder about them and not very well I might add. Now wipe down my bike my pet after a...

    Torque

    Then to your point you better not wrench on any racer's bikes where the stress/failure threshold is being challenged. :eek: George

    Torque

    You of all people should know better Art. My guess is you may be a degreed engineer like myself but you do not do engineering for a living. I am a product development engineer in the auto industry and establishing torque specs is fundamental to design...not only function but reliability over...

    Should I ship my bike?

    I have flown quite a bit as well on business as well as pleasure. Anybody knows that has that airline handlers are some of the worst although in the sea of mediocrity...likely on a par with UPS ;) I fly with high dollar golf clubs each year. Anybody who has knows that a hard case is the "only"...

    building up a bike.... what first frame or components

    Agree with lohsnest. No disrespect, but you mentioned you are cash limited. If building a bike from scratch, it is almost always cheaper and much easier to simply buy the bike you want. Particularly...since you are asking the question. HTH, George

    Should I ship my bike?

    Bore-troll...you are my pet. Now fetch me my morning paper and be careful not to slob on it. After that, check my tire pressure and then be gone with you back to the lighthouse. A perfect day for a ride. :D George

    Should I ship my bike?

    Bikes are shipped via carrier services all the time. Most, but not all probability of zero damage pertains to how effectively the bike is packaged. I bought my new Bianchi from a shop in Ohio and had a long conversation with the tech who packaged it to ensure it was done properly. Its all in the...

    Torque

    Connie, I will save you some needless aggravation. In the name of "sense" and bore-troll's mindless musings are mutually exclusive. Best not to engage the pestilent troll. As if any lucid dialog were possible. HTH, George

    lokstah...what are you talking about? Bore-troll, the moron that he is, has never used a torque wrench in his life. Connie you are indeed correct. George

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    It is you lohstah who is the lightening rod and perpetuating this thread...lol. As a non gun owner I do not take exception to the placement or the content of this thread at all. It has in fact been informative as I would have never imagined that so many car a gun when they ride their bike. I...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    excuse me lokstah for butting in but please. You are incensed about the spirit of this forum being violated...when you don't have the guts to speak out against the most derogatory person on the board when he is perpetrating his hate speak like water under a bridge? What a joke. And for the...

    Steel Riders- paint care?

    Tonto, Colorodacyclist.com is where I purchased a roll. Not expensive. Great stuff. The Lizard Skin that Connie mentioned is quite popular for the chainstay. I have a factory vinyl chainstay protector on my new Bianchi that I covered with mylar to protect the graphics :) HTH, George

Shane, every once...
