[RBW] Re: Racks for the Clem

2015-10-21 Thread Wayne Naha
Just when I thought that having a mid-to-high trail fork would rule out any substantive front loads, now the Clem's long front-center is ruling them back in! What to make of it all? I do like the look and functionality of the front porteur type rack, but had despaired of mounting one on the

+1 on this. Friction shifting the 8 speed cassette on the Clem is loads trickier than the old 5 cog freewheel. Obviously, it's a matter of practice and familiarity, but trying it with 10? Nope! On Monday, November 9, 2015 at 10:44:10 AM UTC-5, Joey Korkames wrote: > > I find it difficult to

Each size Clem got it's own specific crank arm length. My size, the 52cm, was spec'd to get 172.5mm crank arms. The arms are actually marked '173' but I suppose marking them '172.5' would be overkill. The small Clem was supposed to get 170mm arms. I forget what the large Clem would get,
