I'm a Computer (Web) Programmer/Analyst based in Anchorage, AK and Minneapolis, MN. I use (among other things) ASP.NET, C# and SQL Server.

I build things. Bicycles, computers, websites, guitars, cars, motorcycles, sound sytems... lots of things.

comment Why offset the rear rim to the hub and not the hub in the frame?
So are you saying that the chain line is so near its maximum limit that it just cannot handle a ~5-10mm shift to the right without the same spacing from the chainrings as well? Are you certain of this?

I know they make offset rear rims to accomodate this, but this is another compromise as the rims are weaker on one side. It seems we try everywhere else, Why not the frame?

Where can I buy Micro-cellular urethane? If I find it in tubing, should I install it in 6" and 5" lengths, or cut it into 6x 1" and 4x 1.25" lengths?

They say you should show research in your questions... I just take that like a fundamentalist does the parts of the bible they like. There are questions in there somewhere.

comment What brand / model of brake is this modified U-brake?
That's my best guess, I bought the setup from the guy who built it when I was in high school, and it seemed like it was something he had bought around that time. I think he called it a "C-Modified U-Brake."
