comment How can somebody with Type I diabetes keep blood sugar levels acceptable during and after a multi-hour ride?
Can you also post which kind of insulin you use at what times? What kind and how much basal insulin do you use? Before bedtime? Do you eat after your workout, or does your level rise without injecting or does the level rise on its own with no food?

comment Size of Pedal Threading on old German Glockenlager?
Thanks for the ideas. It might actually be a normal thread. It is fatter than 14mm, more like 14,2mm, therefore it can't be French. After measuring again it could be 20 tpi. Somehow I though 24 is normal, but it is actually 20 tpi. Some shop was selling 24 tpi drills, that must have thrown me off. Because I can only there 4 threads it isn't very accurate, but I will just try my luck.

Did so now. See if they still answer today. But I still want to build this tool, just for the sake of it.

comment Calibrate Tensiometer
Thanks, but not quite yet... I still think the forces are in no comparision. Imagine the whole costruction (scale, spoke and frame) are under 1600N of tension. If I now apply a small perpendicular force (maybe 25N through the TM-1) against the spoke, the measured weight may increase max. to 1625N, which is neglectable. The tensiometer only measures relativly how easy it is to bend the spoke sideways given a certain tension. Other components such as the scale don't get any perpendicular presure, and are therefore not part of the measurment. I still don't see a hazard for seriously wrong results
