  • By day a Microsoft Platform Web Developer.
  • By night 1/2 the year, a H.S Basketball Coach.

I am a mixed mode commuter - sometimes I ride, sometimes I drive, and sometimes there is a bus or train ride mixed in there.

My rides:

  • 2008 Specialized Roubaix Comp (pretty much stock)
  • 2004 Novara Randonee - racks, fenders, lights and an upgrade to 105 on the rear after a crash.

Started commuting as an adult on a 1993 MtnTek Vertical - rack, fenders, slicks - Sold in 2013.

comment MTB Crank on a Cyclocross Bicycle?
Vorac, that's a good point but not really an issue here since it sounds like Andresch is planning on replacing the entire crankset, not just a chainring.

comment Pedal arm inside pedal screw hole stripped
Typically bike applications use a light lithium grease as a lubricant. In fact, I would put a dab on the pedal threads every time you remove and re-install your pedals. This would be the same grease you would use when you repack hub, bottom bracket or headset bearings.
