comment How much is too much - spokes protruding into the rim
Thanks. I decided to shoot them an email expressing my dissatisfaction, but I'll probably end up filing them down myself before taping it over.

comment What size nipple should I use for granny bike rim?
I also wondered why the Ryde website didn't say anything about it, it it's a special thing. In their PDF catalogue, some of the other Westwood type rims are mentioned to have the 5.5 mm spoke holes though.

I guess DV means Dunlop Valve.

comment Hydraulic disk brake stops working when hot; back to normal after cooling - is this expected?
This reply misses the point of fading due to boiling brake fluid and that this is expected behavior for hydraulic disk brakes (which is really what this question is all about). To me it doesn't sound like the OP needs to bleed his brakes as much as change braking patterns and adjust his expectations.

comment I need help to identify this bike
As David pointes out, the curvature of the frame doesn't quite match, but also the fork has "twin crowns" on the rusty one, but the Schwinn has a unicrown type fork. Kevins answer below seems much more likely.

The bike pictured here looks very much like the one in question: brickhouseantiqueshop.blogspot.dk/2012/06/… (Picture link: 1.bp.blogspot.com/-eqwlDwMr1EU/T9-yUlUXQtI/AAAAAAAAAkY/… )
