    Off Road Gearing

    Im thinking about a motoredbike build, but instead of the (wonderful) board track style Im thinking of more a dirttrack, or off road style. I did a little bit of search and found nothing.......so, what gearing would be good for low end pull with, say, the typical Grubee Skyhawk 66 and/or...

    Gcrank1 has learned how to do pics!

    'Old dog, new tricks' & all that........ I had to find out what all the rave is about 'stretch cruisers'; and I had to do it without breaking the bank! Being 6'1" x 205ish#s I wanted more than most cruisers offer, though my GT Dyno Deuce with a setback seatpost is a pretty good fit in its...

    Sprockets that work for me

    Given that Im am not a power rider, but try to do a min. 5 mi./day on our country town road with some lowish, rolling hills, that is, we arent flat and we arent hilly, I get a varied workout and a good feel for what rations are working. My bike for 'serious' is a Trek 7200, set up 'English', but...

    Dyno Fireballs

    Is it just me, or are these typically a 'chunky ride' because of the flame tread design?

    Straighten a bent fender stay?

    I have bent stay on my Electra Jester. These are the rather hefty chromed steel in a 'V' shape for strength. It looks like it took a localized hit and is somewhat of a compound curve. My attempts at hand tweaking cold do nothing and I would like to 'do no more damage'.

    How to pick good springer fork...

    I havent got a definitive answer to that either (yet) though I asked a few people about it during the winter. Im inclined to go with what the motored bike people have been using with some successful history behind them. The Felt Jerry Springer and Abraham Linkage 'seem' to be built to a higher...

    Twist grip shifter relocate

    I dont remember where I stumbled across this, but I dont think it was here........ Anyway, it is so clean and cool (wish I had pics, but you will get the idea). The twistgrip shifters are (moslty?) made to fit 7/8" dia. bars. They also make a 7/8" 'stubbie' mount for other handlebar...

    KK Deuce stem ?

    My GT Dyno Deuce has the straightleg, triple tree fork with 1 1/8" threadless steertube. On this is a 'threadless' stem, but for 7/8" clamp area bars; really cuts my options for using bars in my bikebar jumble. On the later KK Deuce versions did they go to a 1 1/8" x 1" clamp stem, or no? If...

    CWC Roadmaster toptube length?

    My rat OCC is on its way

    My oldest Grandson (now 20), thinks Grampa is pretty cool ( :D ), he offered up his old rat snowbank OCC bike to me after I told him about the stuff I saw online about 'gravity bikes'. Since I go a bit over 200# and about 6'1" the typical BMX bike frame would scrunch me up pretty well, so this...

    How to 'anti-rust' steel rims?

    So, Im cleaning up my old 'spaceliner' (Murry 'M.O.' stamped) steel rims (complete wheels); I have to wire brush the inevitable rusty spots on the tube liner side and am thinking that some kid of paint might be a good idea in there. What do you guys recommend ? Id like it to be good for another...

    I found it at my local (new in town) O'Reilly Auto Parts; they also have Krylon, which has been good to me in the past.

    Fork fit ?, GT Dyno/Felt

    Does anybody know if the 1 1/8" Felt Jerry Springer fork will bolt on a '99/2000ish GT Dyno Duece (it has the threadless 1 1/8" fork) and/or what I need to make it fit? I know there are 'cheaper' forks, but I would rather have 'better' than 'cheaper' if it really is (and I do want this one to be...

    2 spd kickback coaster hubs

    So if Im looking at a bike at the 'recycle center' or St. Vincent's, etc., how can I tell if it has the hub in question if I cant try it out? Quicker would be better than slower if I have a crack at bringing one home.
