comment 8 speed free wheel with single speed crankset
@poroy: Are your chainrings riveted to your crank, or can you remove them? Good quality cranksets you can remove the chainrings, and you can replace the 42 with a 50.

Fortunately pedals are one of few things on a bike with basically one standard that everyone plays by.

comment Are Hövding helmets safer than regular helmets?
Everyone is always "happy" about an expensive purchase initially. You'll need more than "a few days" of ridership for your testimonials to have any meaningful value.

comment 22 to 11 speed conversion?
Depending on his crankset he may be able to take off one of the chainrings, replace the chainring bolts with single-stack bolts, and be ready to roll.

comment Why aren't hub/drum/roller brakes suitable for touring?
@DanielRHicks: I'm pretty sure what you are thinking of is an auxiliary drum brake used specifically during descents, and not as the primary brake. The Arai model is an example. I don't think non-BSO tandems have ever been equipped with only hub brakes, tandems have the greatest braking demands of all bicycles.

This method is only suitable when removing a crank arm that is already headed to the scrap heap.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about manufacturing processes.

comment Road Bike Tire Throwing Rocks
And when the stones hit other cars on the road, that's their problem, not yours. That's normal wear and tear.

comment Chain vs chainless options
There is a lot of false information in this answer. Chain life in years will depend on how much riding, what conditions, and how much maintenance it receives. Rear derailleurs have almost no involvement in chain life. Single speeds the chain doesn't wear any slower than multi-speed, you just don't necessarily notice the wear as easily as when a multispeed starts skipping due to uneven wear amongst cogs.

comment Shimano Hollowtech II bottom bracket: milling the frame necessary?
@DavidG: Not really. A lot of frames don't come faced, for their BB shells or their head tubes.

@Blam: perhaps then you should just say "A torque wrench is recommended as carbon fiber can be easily damaged by over-torquing" and be straight to the point.
