    Ringle Chinese Skewer Repros

    Thought I'd give a review of the repro crank caps improvepart offers which are a very close match to the rare and expensive Cook crank caps. I had hoped the finish would be a bit shinier as an NOS black Cook crank would have some shine to it through the anodizing, they have more of a satin...

    1993 Cannondale M800 BOTE

    Thanks, now leaning toward 2mm or 14 straight gauge to match the front wheel 👍

    1993 Cannondale M800 BOTE

    @stephan I'm now seeing 15 gauge or 1.8mm isn't sold as a straight gauge option, 14 gauge 2mm straight gauge or butted 14/15 2/1.8 are probably my two best options, the front wheel is straight gauge 14 or 2mm so probably the way I'll go The spoke length calculator produced lengths of 268.56 &...

    Thanks so much for this, looks like the spokes previously used to build the original wheel were the correct length according to the on-line tool. Realizing this is a subjective question, what spokes would you order? Straight gauge 15? Or possibly 14/15 or 15/16 butted?

    Thanks so much for the cautionary advice and pointers from you both, very much appreciated. Overall way my plan is to be as involved as much as possible and lean on other people for their advice and experience, I know a couple locals with a few wheel builds under their belts. Possibly I'll do...

    @Vesatoro A big thanks for pointing out a "need" to replace the rear hub :LOL: I've been in possession of the matching rear Ringle hub to my front hub for a few years now, trouble is one flange is broken. It's a Bubba freewheel version. Your kind suggestion motivated me to start watching...

    Rocky Mountain Vertex 1996 (Revolution Cranks Content)

    This 1996 Vertex was the obvious choice when decided which bike would get these. Already having the Syncros stem and post, also being in the same era this version of revolutions was produced. Pretty big upgrade!! 😁 :cool:

    Rocky Mountain Vertex 1996 (Revolution Cranks Content)

    I’ve always wanted a set of Syncros Revolution cranks but had always assumed they would be unattainable. Cooks are my number one favorites with the Revolutions being a close second. Nice thing about Cooks is they are less rare and typically less expensive. With Revolutions typically going for...

    Replica Ritchey Z Max- seems like we´ve been heard!

    Hmmm, this link shows this unbranded version has expired. Too bad, I would have loved to grab at least one pair

    Replica Ritchey Z Max- seems like we´ve been heard!

    These look great. I'm trying to create an account but can't get past the additional security ask for my phone number. There are no options to enter a Canadian phone number. Anyone else have a work around?

    1993 Cannondale M800 BOTE

    Thanks @Vesatoro for the measurement and @stew-b for encouraging me to add this missing decal. It's not perfect but overall I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I've included the SVG file used in case anyone else would like to try making use of it, hopefully a dropbox link will work...

    1976 Schwinn Suburban

    I'm taking that as a big complement @MattiThundrrr , yes @Guinessisgoodforyou it is largely a repaint. I'm going to say one of my more successful efforts (IMHO). Try as I might, I've found it very difficult to achieve a finish as smooth as this one while I've worked on other DIY resprays but...
