    Ok I have to admit here that I haven't actually ridden it with that 80+ gearing. Though I have done 48x16...

    Love the first pic with all the parts. And always loved that frame! (And fork!)

    For some reason my knees don't like downtube bosses in general. I had to cover the unused ones on one of my frames...

    So apparently I am still riding with Presta tubes in Schrader drilled rims. Re-discovered it today when I swapped in a different tire on my 26" bike which I never flat on. I've been using the Wheels...

    Yup - I have an Absolute Black n/w chainring on the middle of my triple cranks (for my 26" beater). You will probably need single (shorter) chainring bolts, and as TwoWheelsDC mentioned, the correct...

    Ha, I go plenty slow enough, and not particularly interested in being unhorsed any more than I already am! As the owner of a rigid 26" bike as well I can't imagine wanting to ever go back to that on...

    Found it - looks like I stopped once but that may not been because of stairs. It is pretty narrow, and there's no curb cut.

    I think I had perhaps one or two wheels with Presta tubes in Schrader rims with grommets, but total mileage like that was probably under 2000, maybe a lot less. I don't remember exactly, sorry! I...

    Np! I don't ride the MVT often but with any route even if 99% of it is clear, that 1% of unseen ice can really get you. I've crashed enough times on ice not to want to do it again!
