    1940s hiawatha build.

    I've used this saddle. It looks even better once you remove the front spring.

    Cottered crank is too close to frame. Help!

    try reversing the spindle. It may be longer on one side to compensate

    How about a single pedal tandem?

    I've built a couple of stretch bikes out of tandems, as have friends of mine. It can be done, but don't expect to weave through slaloms easily!

    3" Tire on a 4" rim?

    Thanks! Due to a knee replacement it will be a while before I'm up and building again, but the pics give me a pretty good idea what to expect. :thumbsup:

    Bike shop horror stories.

    I had one where the bottom bracket cup was misthreaded and frozem cockeyed in the frame. The customer rode it long enough loose for the left hand crankarm to wear a 1/4 inch divot out of the chainstay from repeated contact. It took 2 days to get the cup out in 3 pieces.

    3" Tire on a 4" rim?

    I posted this in "how to" and got almost no responses so I thought I'd try here. Has anyone tried mounting a 3" tire on a 4" (aka Mongoose Dolemite) rim? I'd try it myself to find out but I'm not in a position to get to the basement workshop- literally! (recent knee surgery)

    3" tires on a 4" rim?

    I know I've seen some daring souls stretch out a 26x2 1/4 tire across a fat bike rim, but has anyone done it with a 3"tire? Just wondering how it would look and what the longevity is...

    It's tough, but if I had to pick just one, this would be it.

    You guys see any problems with this idea?

    That sounds about right, that's what I usually pay.
