.NET applications and bicycles. That's what I know about. I wouldn't believe me on anything else.

I have that kit, which I use with my Harbor Freight air tank. Stick with the simple stuff and you can get good stuff from them :)

You can get a minimal chain tool for just a few bucks. Just spring for one.

comment Reuse oversized hardtrail frame to build a commuter bike?
@arne should I not mention the use of a drop bar since it wasn't specifically mentioned? Drop bar bikes are pretty common commuters and most people don't understand geometry that well, so I thought it best to cover all the bases from longest to shortest cockpit. Also, suggesting TT bars keeps all the problems with drop bars and adds some more. TT bars are designed for breaking, sprinting, and climbing, not holding onto for long distances, so for many they cause nerve impingement. They also have the same reach problems as drop bars for this situation. But you do get hip points, so there's that.

@Batman a 20.5", which basically an XL, is 2-3 sizes too big for someone 5'7". At that point it's more than just a matter of standover.

comment What are the advantages of filling tires with Nitrogen instead of air?
@Blam That's relatively insignificant. Nitrogen pays off when you're talking about temperature swings of 100F, 200F, or more, which is a very real possibility in motorsports racing. F1 tires can reach 300F. Bicycle tires don't come anywhere close to those kinds of temperature swings.
