    Pardon me, but does anyone know the specs for this hub?

    Oh yeah for sure. Thanks for the advice alfeng. The rim I'm using is a 36h 700c Velocity Deep V (ERD is 882). I found this pretty keen spoke length calculator on Mr. Brown's website: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/rinard/spocalc.htm It's an Excel spreadsheet works well with the info on the hub...

    Bianchi custom hub from a 2006 Bianchi San Jose. http://www.bianchiusa.com/06_san_jose.html I'm trying to figure out the size of spokes to buy. Thank you kindly for reading.

    Powertap Wheel Buildup Question

    I'm about to do the exact same thing on a Velocity Deep V, with 36 holes, and a Bianchi hub, with 32 holes. So far from I've been reading online it is possible to do. Here is something I found concerning a 48h rim and a 36h hub: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080625102638AAeLc3g...

    about to build a really nice bike, however there is one little problem.

    yeah, tomorrow i'll be in search of the piece. i went to one and was a bit discouraged when they told me that it was a canondale specific thing; i so hope it isn't so *crosses fingers*

    about to build a really nice bike, however there is one little problem.

    the frame i have is a canondale caad9. however to set up the gears and such i think i need a little piece that guides the cables. it's located on the bottom bracket. where does one find such a piece? it's really frustrating to not be able to complete the bike due to this...

    I just got a 2001 Bianchi Pista frame

    Oh nice, I can't believe you were able to get your bike back. How lucky to have it around this long and in great condition I presume. Seems like you take care of it. This frame I just received belonged to two other people before me. The previous owner wanted to get rid of it since it was...

    I just got a 2001 Bianchi Pista frame

    I swapped everything I had to it (wheels, chain, drop bar, brake and levers along with everything that comes with it) and rode it... For some reason it's the most comfortable bicycle I've ever been on. It's ridiculous. It feels as if I'm floating on my seat. I thought it was going to be more...

    rebuilding a hub

    i just got an old motobecane bicycle called the super mirage. it's in a sweet condition. about the only thing that i have to do is get a new headset and new wheels. the wheels have a bit of rust on the spokes. so i'm thinking about taking apart the hub and clean it and regrease it. i'm wondering...

    hi there, i'm wondering what is a fair price for a bike witht this equipment set up?

    Oh good to know. I'm just interested in all of the parts. They would probably take a while to get it all together. I don't really care for the frame. It's just the wheels, and seat. They have had their fair use. The tires are for sure new. Would 600-800 be fair?

    hi there, i'm wondering what is a fair price for a bike witht this equipment set up?

    The bike frame is a steel Motobecane Olympia, I think it's from 1981 and still has a great original paint finish. It's got the stock seat stem, fork, front brake, bottom bracket, and headset. The front wheel is a black Aerospoke. The rear wheel has a flip-flop Phil Woods hub laced to a machined...

    building a new bike

    i'm thinking of finally going geared for a new ride. i've been riding a single speed a a fixie for quite some time now :) what exactly is the difference between the shimano 105, ultegra, and dura ace groupsets? is it just weight savings? or is also function? meaning, does the dura ace shifter...
