You got a ways to go before you can top the old woman with two sacks of melons on a coaster-brake girls frame bike who rode past me on the bike path while I was all decked out in my best Fred-wear.
I could not catch here, and I am damned certain she had more miles in those melons than I had that day.

Sadly these days I have all I can do to get in and out of a hire car. My back is crap, I am fat and ugly but at least I can't hear too well.
I'll get back to passing the kids on hills, there's still time.

I ain't dead yet.

sigh, I bought it online as noone local had what I wanted so it would have been a special order.

I've pretty much decided I need a 110mm as I likely have a 122.5mm if I believe Shimano's specs on my old crankset, and I do the math.

which crankset is on there now again? model. I've got a buddy that works for a shop and can probably look up the crank/bb on J&B's website and tell you definitively.

the new crank is an Origin-8 Trekking crankset, this one
http://www.origin-8.com/?page_id=91&...+ARMS+%26+SETS

and I can find /nothing/ technical on their webpile, nor was their anything in the box.

the crank I removed was a Shimano FC-M191,
http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830657743.pdf

which that says had a 47.5mm chain line (I didn't measure it before removing, DUH!), and uses a 122.5mm BB (wow, thats wide).

I measure my current chainline at 54mm, so...

54 - 47.5 == 6.5mm
122.5 - (6.5*2) == 109.5mm

so I figure I need a 110mm BB.

but yeah, if your friend can verify this, awesome. I have the bike ridable as-is with the funky chain line, just that the front derailleur is cranked out as far as it goes.

That reminds me of a book written by Lewis Grizzard, a now-deceased southern humorist and writer:

Cycling-related Christmas gifts?

I'm so excited. My wife mentioned that my Christmas gift, a pair of cycling shoes, is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. She also said I wouldn't have to wait to enjoy them either. I get one tomorrow and the other one on Christmas Day. True love I tell you! True love!

Make sure you have room for it before you order. Look to make sure the chainring bolts and crankarm will clear the chainstays.

I know this sounds basic, but I got bit by it the other day.

yeah, there's a mile of aisles between the crank ends and chainstays... and the old 28T sprocket was in the same position so surely this 28T will fit there too, but I'll measure that before I commit too.

from an inmate's FB posting:
It also reflects my feelings that we have become a nation of mean. Bullying, refusing to compromise, anything goes, incredibly violent. The issue isn't the guns themselves, it's us. When will this sort of behavior become unacceptable? When it does, we will have real progress toward murder.

While they're discussing the shootings in MA, it could very well be changed slightly to say cars, MCs, trucks, etc vs cyclists ...and people wonder why 'we' get upset with car drivers' attitudes? We're on the receiving end of all that hate. REGARDLESS of whether we're riding 'in the right' or not, we get it 'cause 'we're in the way.'

I realize its hard, but stop and *think* about your actions. Are you following the Golden Rule? (do unto others as you would have them do unto you, in case you've forgotten)

I agree.

I never relized how vulnerable kayakers were, until I bought one. We mostly stick to secluded areas. However, we went onto a large lake and wanted to cross over. The sight of a potentially-drunk bubba in his 70mph, metal flake fish wagon flying at us is truly scary. Vulnerable, just like a cyclist.
