A lot of the subjects in the spreadsheet can be filled with threads found in the common questions and former stickies area.

Would drilling and tapping a regular profile for the GDH bolts be of any use? I only have pictures comparing the size of the bolts and after pictures of the spindle...

Also since I've now got an Elementary I could take some pretty pictures of how to install it?

As long as the GDH minor is larger than the original major it will work.

Might as well start snapping photos, it wouldn't hurt.

Yeah couch, I looked at the common stickies list and put some of them up there. I am hoping that a lot of this is already done in one way or another. It'll be a bit of searching the net to fill this in.

Also, if someone is willing to detail a mod or maintenance guide, just do it, it's appreciated. Even the small/trivial stuff helps because someone out there might be wondering, "What if I want to use GDH bolts in my cranks?"

Andras, I am not sure what to tell you, I just tested it on IE, FF, and Chromium (development build). I can post the list if you'd like.

I'm going to be starting the basic Wiki structure of it today.  It is going to be at http://www.legitdigit.com for now, then when we get a real domain, we can just install the application and migrate the database over.

Thanks DnixJDP I know that Carbon was also interested in working on getting the wiki up and running. Perhpas we should have a list of potential people who will be working on this project and what their focus will be. As always, edit as needed:
https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AnwRtvUPvy5CdEtCUE1hODRnUDVUbUl0aldkTmo3bVE&hl=en

I was able to find a lot of how-tos out there. So the list may look long, but there are plenty of links: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AnwRtvUPvy5CdEw0QjNGc1FwUWo0WTN2M056X2V6clE&hl=en

Well, the wiki app I was using isn't working right, so I'm going to look for some better ones.  If anyone knows of any, that would be very helpful.  I'll make a post in here when I have it all set up.

Also, if sheep reads this post, send me a PM and I'll give you admin credentials for the wiki, so that we can start to get this kind of integrated into a part of BikeGuide.

I have a new application now, but my FTP is being gay.  I have it all installed locally, and should have the FTP issue fixed by tomorrow.

Danscomp is actually a pretty good resource for bearing and thread sizes. I can write up a page with a table of parts and thier dimensions. I can also make a good gyro installation write up but someone else will have to do pics.

I just got a PM back from Sheep who said that the wiki can be hosted on BG. We'll just need to find some wiki app that integrates well.

Eggit: With Dans and the thread here in BG, we should have most bolts and bearings taken care of. Go ahead and write the Gyro guide. That's the great part about a wiki, pictures can be added later.

Deathrow: have a look at the spreadsheet of different articles to be done and see if you can knock out or even just edit down any. Or, if you know some about wikis, I am sure your help would be appreciated there.

The wiki app I'd suggest is MediaWiki, It's free, open source, and is the same software that Wikipedia uses.
