  1. As always, a lot of bitching and no action. If you feel so strongly about it why don’t you quit your job and go be a nurse. The hours are long and the pay is bad. Forget about buying a new bike again and you will probably miss a lot off races as you will have to work a couple of weekends a month. Or alternatively put in leave and go feed some babies, change bed pans, after awhile you should get use to the 12 hour shifts. The doctors are not striking and still the patients die? Patients dieing is a hospital management/government failure. The Government now want nurses to work back 4 years after studying. Taking in account that they work while studying so I assume even less people will studying nursing in future.
  2. If they can’t find a way to make the road safer they are wasting there time. I don’t see that happening so will not bother to take out a licence again or do races.

  4. 38t is the smallest you can go on a 130 BCD. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> Compact are usually 50/36 or 50/34. Campy front derailers have a 16 t capacity so a 52/36 should work. I used a normal FD with out problems on a compact. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> You don't need the 52 as you can make up the speed by dropping one tooth on the smallest sprocket. See pic. Here is a nice tool to see what difference the gearing makes: http://sheldonbrown.com/gears/index.html Ox_Wagon2010-02-11 10:32:49
  5. It will depend on the frame you?re looking at. Some full sussers are designed for 80mm forks. The rule off thumb is that you will steepen the head tube angle with 1 degree for every 20mm that you drop in travel. The effect is that the 100mm frame with a 80mm fork will be a ?bit? more ?twitch? (steer faster). So look at the head tube angle of the frame your looking at. Most are around 69-71 degrees. Hardtails are normally 71 degrees. So it should not be a problem if the frame you?re looking at has a head tube angle of 69-70 degrees. Only a Giant Anthem can get away with a 72 degree head tube. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> I build up an old Kona that feels like it steers slowly(wide) compared to my hardtail. I later found out that it should have an 80mm fork instead of a 100mm fork that it has now.
  6. From a previous thread: Paraffin may cause problems. So cleaning the disk may solve the problem. Someone at the 24hr recommended Car Disk brake cleaner. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> Ox_Wagon2010-01-13 08:02:55
