comment Where can I buy lugs for a classic roadster frame geometry?
I can reword it, but I'm trying to state that you probably can't "buy" such lugs, though you could possibly have them made. If you've got a suggestion that makes that clearer I'm happy to hear it.

comment Will an ACS 13T X 3/32 Crossfire freewheel fit an All-City Standard 130mm Hub?
Not a direct answer to your question, but instead of using a freewheel hub, you could use a cassette hub and simply run the chain around a single 11t sprocket. You'd have to adjust for chainline in the front.

comment Why aren't Tour de France riders going any faster?
You might want to find a copy of Bicycle Quarterly vol. 8 no. 4 where an interesting analysis is done of bicycle race speeds compared with foot racing; there is a high correlation and some of the performance increases are due purely to improved training and simply better athletes in the competition. One surprising result: even introducing the derailleur didn't make a massive spike in performance.

They don't really appear to have anything suitable.

For those missing more context, it looks like @hhh has a Genetic chain tensioner, which is a semi- (total?) clone of the On-One chaintug.

comment Brompton front light recommendations?
Also note that we don't really go shopping on Bicycles.SE. So hopefully compatibility advice is helpful enough.

comment What should I look for in a mountain bike for doing BMX-style balancing tricks?
Do you want to use the bike for anything other than trick riding? At the extreme end you start getting into bicycles specialized for that, at the expense of true off-road or distance riding.

comment How do I measure a fork for suitability?
That fork will fit your wheel, might not fit your bike, and I can't say how it'll affect handling - is that the exact same fork as you measured on the other bike?

comment Is it worth switching from regular “rim brakes” to the new disk brakes?
This question answers most of your question: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/4423/… - the only difference is whether your Haro frame and fork have disc tabs or not.
