How long is the rear end on a Sunday Wave? I need a longer frame and could buy one of these for about $90.

Got knocked off my road bike today. Fairly slow so nothing too bad but what should I check on my bike to make sure its still safe to ride? It's a CAAD8, think the forks are alloy steerer with carbon legs. Thankfully it looks like the only damage is the wheels slightly out of true, the guys car came off a lot worse haha. Road cleats can make quite the dent and scratch when you're trying to keep yourself upright on a car bumper.

good to hear to came out unscathed!

id take the fork out of the frame and have a good look around the crown/steerertube and make sure it isn't stressed looking or cracked. check the blades for any damage, as long as theres nothing that penetrates through the paint or through a few layers of carbon you should be good. check your bars & stem for cracks or damage as well

They are shite. You have a full chain of bent links that are trying to straighten themselves out everytime you crank. And we all know a bent peice of metal fatigues over a straight peice.

Also they suck dick

i have two sets of gold female bolts for shadow front hubs.

These;


I want to run them (pegless of course) on my female Kink Incite rearhub. It has a steel ht axle at 15mm i believe.

The original bolts have 30mm of thread.
The bolts i want to run have 20mm thread.

Will the hub be fine if i run these shorter but nicer bolts? I'm more concerned about the drive side than the non drive side, because well... the driver does nothing for the axle's integrity halfway down. But the original ones don't go that deep into the axle either.

The shorter bolt is taking about 13mm of thread. till about right under the driver's teeth.

No, really!

Can you run spacers between the sprocket and crank arm on spline drive sprockets/cranks?
