    RST Omega

    Im in need of a new cheap 100mm-ish fork (My RST Capa is holding up my abuse well, but I need more travel), and found this RST Omega TC http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/product.php?pid=101749 It says it has 70-110mm travel, but then http://www.rst.com.tw/product/pd2006/omega-da.htm there...

    Help to determine spoke lenght

    Hello, I'm going to be building a front wheel, but don't know which spokes to use! I was planning on using a shimano m525 36 hole disc brake hub, and my current alex rim. I plan to use a 3 cross pattern. Any help to determine the lenght is appreciated! Dan

    Mech. disc brake lever

    I was just wondering if the Avid BB7's can be used with any v-brake lever. And, which adapter do I need to moung a 185mm caliper on a 51mm mount? Dan

    Disc brake setup

    Another question- Can I use any normal V-brake lever for the disc brakes? and what adapter would I need to mound the 185mm caliper? I weigh around 125 pounds. Yes there are some pretty long descents with the trailer (100m-150), and stopping with the V-brakes has been a pain... Dan

    Disc brake setup

    Are there 475's with 36 holes? I was thinking of the 185mm rotors because sometimes I ride with a small trailer hooked up that we can load with 100 pounds of stuff (collecting news papers, etc), and I was opting for more brake power. And, how do the shimano mechs compare to the avid bb7's? And...

    Spoke length and wheel bld. question

    Hello, I've been thinking of installing a 185mm Avid disc brake on my fork, and I have a couple of questions- The new Hub requires shorter spokes, do I have to buy a new set(how do I determine the lenght?), or is there a way I can use the old ones? Is putting a wheel together hard? Dan

    disc brakes disc brakes..

    Okay, found that my current hub is 36 hole, so the shimano hub should be compatible. About the spokes, can I use the old ones, or do I have to purchase a new set, and is hub installtion something that the average guy can do? Dan

    disc brakes disc brakes..

    I now have an Alex rim at the front, with a shimano hub, I'll go count the spokes and see if I can find a match. good thing you told me, because I wouldn't have wanted to buy a whole wheel, that would have increased the intl. shipping charges dramatically. Dan

    disc brakes disc brakes..

    Hello, I've been riding on a new bike lately, but I feel that I don't have enough brake power at the front, so I've considered installing a set at the front. I know I need a new rim, and my fork has the 51mm attachment system. I was looking at some brakes, and found some Hayes, Shimano, Suntour...
