    @jerry You can def hear the difference when tapping if there's delamination. Even on a tiny chip in a steer tube.

    If you're trying to find the words to say "flood it with epoxy", you're about right. You wanna remove any cracks before rebuilding the area though or they'll continue to propagate underneath your added material.

    Hmm, I rode it for almost a year and it didn't change, so maybe it's not bad.
  • LurveyLurvey Riding Level: 416

    RDQ: Let's say I changed the spacers out on a 126 or a 130 spaced freewheel hub to make it fit a 120 spaced frame without having to stretch/widen the stays or anything. How big of a freewheel could I fit in there? 5 speed? 6? Not enough information given to make a definitive answer? Too pointless a project to even bother with, just get a Sturmey-Archer or something?

    why are you trying to put gears on a track bike
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    and Dan what I was trying to get across was that lurveys untrained Canadian ears wouldn't be able to tell, not that the tap test isn't useful
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    sorry

    @Miguel - Because the bike I have is a singlespeed and the commute I have needs many speeds. Or at least more than one.

    @jerry - For $300 I could probably get a basharound bike that would work at least as well. I've seen references to a 120 spaced freehub that Shimano supposedly made way back when, but I haven't seen one outside of questionable-looking eBay auctions.

    Possibly related question: Instead of trying to kludge together bike parts, would it be a better use of time to update my resume and find a job that isn't in the ass-end of Tigard?

    stack paper
    get a better bike atmo
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    @wookie im not sure if you can even buy that thing yet, but figured that would give a good idea of what's possible. I'd go the IG hub route, or stack paper

  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    no way! that's the 26er version so it must be tiny
  • S_L_D_S_L_D_ Riding Level: 453
    That looks to be the same size as my monocog, 17". I'm 176.5 cm tall and feel real good on it mtbing.
  • S_L_D_S_L_D_ Riding Level: 453
    Bummer that it's not disc and doesn't have sliding dropouts bur still probably a great bar bike atmo.

  • CekteCekte Riding Level: 1,167
    My lower abdomen and back are in serious pain from a bike accident the other day. The pain is constant and radiates down to my testes. Do I have a hernia Dr. Jerry?
  • CekteCekte Riding Level: 1,167
    Kidding, but not really kidding :/
  • jerryjerry Riding Level: 4,339
    yeah probably, or internal bleeding causing swelling
  • CekteCekte Riding Level: 1,167
    Hmm, kinda what I thought. Not sure what I should do, if anything. Def can't afford a doctor/hospital visit. Pain is not getting better or going away. It's weird because it didn't really get seriously noticeable until late last night, but the wreck was midday Wed.
  • wookiewookie Riding Level: 1,146
    Isn't there something where people who get hit by cars sometimes feel fine right after the accident but start getting aches/pains a good chunk of time after the accident? ~18 hours does seem a little long for that though.

  • CekteCekte Riding Level: 1,167
    Yeah I was sore all over my right side from the accident, but didn't feel the abdominal pain like this until late last night which would have been a bit over 24 hours, Maybe like 30 or so. Pain is on my lower right side of abdomen and radiates to my lower back and down to my right nut. It's like a constant blue ball, or similar to perpetual punches to the teste/abdominal area. Really rather uncomfortable

    yep, your insides are broken.
