    Apropos of tires, how does one tell what range of tire widths one can run on a particular rim?

    You can consult http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html#width but it's really conservative. In practice, it would be unusual to be able to cram a tire into a frame that's too wide for the wheel that came with the frame.

    Always ask Sheldon. If you can't find the answer, ask here so someone can give you the direct link to Sheldon's answer.

    This is usually an easy fix -- just poke at the exposed base of the stud with something like a narrow slotted screwdriver to re-seat it. A couple times I've noticed half-gone studs like this on the front tire. If you watch the tire spin, you'll notice that a stud like this is brighter because more metal is showing. With fenders of course it's much harder to spot this on the rear. And as I think Peter White noted, it's no big deal to lose a few.
