    "keel-guard":is it possible to buy chamois padding indepedently of the shorts? I would like to convert a pair of cutoffs to make them wearable in public and not obscene

    what makes you say that?

    if you can get mtb padded underwear, i don't see why the middleman couldn't be cut out of this situationhttp://www.fanfiction.net/s/800170/1/EVANGELION_NEXUS
  2.  
    maybe i'm misunderstanding, but are you sewing chamois directly to your cutoffs?

    it just won't sit properly. it won't stay in place as well as it does on legitimate bike shorts.You're purposefully attempting to sabotage my degree project. Thanks.

    not much but you get dirty/took the guy at bicycle bill's maybe 40 minutes with a loose bearing headset while drinking beer/a multitool for the stem and two headset spanners or one and a big adjustable wrench.
    i think.
    (i had to use a lockring tool too but that's because my bike is weird)

    1. If you can't ride your commuter saddle in the rain, how practical is it? Put the vanity saddle on the vanity bike and get a functional saddle for the everyday ride. That said, saddles are no place to shave weight on ANY bike, your taint and reproductive health (i.e ability to hoist the sails) are far more important than the .00000045 seconds that you may shave off your kilo time with a 100 gram saddle vs. a 250 gram one...or maybe its not more important to you, in which case you have my pity.

    2. Chamois. Chamois needs to be right up against your taintal area for it to be effective at preventing chafing. If you normally wear your shorts super tight, then you will be OK just sewing a chamois into regular shorts, though it will look like a diaper or worse. If your shorts are loose cargo shorts, you'll have trouble keeping the pad in place when riding.

    3. Technically you need a messenger license, though if your employer allows you to start work without one...I have only heard of one person actually getting caught without a license. Though now that I think of it, some buildings downtown actually wanted to see my license (but I was working downtown shortly after 9/11 and security was tighter)

    4. Been riding a Surly Flip Flop for 8 years, year round, for 10's of thousands of miles. I recently had to change the bearings, took 15 minutes and cost close to nothing. Not pretty, not glamorous, but the hub is bombproof and as functional as anything else out there.

    5. Pete: don't you know that Narragansett is the new beer of choice, I expect someone of your social status to know this stuff.http://euphoriabeforetotalimplosion.blogspot.com/

    I disagree with +1ing surly hubs. I had to replace my bearings 4 times in 3 years, and i bent the axle. Though to be fair, i have two friends of mine who are much bigger than I and have both have ridden them for a remarkably long amount of time with no problems... as Micheal has mentioned above.

    I has a dumb question.

    Re-Gearing my Cross-Check... I've got these two screws with springs and a screw-on-head that are for adjusting the placement of the rear wheel in the dropouts. I dont remember how the hell they were installed in the first place. Anyone know how these are supposed to go in??ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."

    Just bet her the price of the window that it will break when an object is thrown at it. If you fail, she feels safe, if you win, she is obligated to pay for the damage. Remember to shake hands.

    God damnit there's legitimately nothing good out there. The only colored tire I've seen on the entire internet is a pair of yellow kendas on ebay that are probably so dry rotted they're worthless.
