    Goal for 2006: Standardmazation!

    My 28 inch Easton carbon bar is clamped to my

    110mm stem which is mounted to the

    1 1/8 inch steerer on my

    100mm travel fork, which holds my

    26 inch dia. wheel, built with

    260mm spokes laced to a

    110mm hub with a

    160mm rotor and a

    2.4 inch tire mounted to it that has a

    53mm case width, which in turn is all mounted to my

    19 inch frame with a

    23 inch top tube and

    175mm cranks with

    9/16 inch pedal threads and a

    27.2mm seatpost that weighs 230 grams

    which helps lighten my bike to 24 pounds!!!


    Whew! Now I'm off to look for any leftover champagne....

    Even though it's standard practise to hate the French, it's way past time for the US to admit they made the better system... Hope you found a fifth of Moet somewhere

    The standard is mks, so my cranks are 0,180 m, seat tube 0,0272 m, etc. don't you just love their standard for ',' and '.'?

    The French failed at total decimalization, they had a ten-day week with ten-day hours each hour with 100 minutes and each hour with 100 seconds. We could have had a classic Western - Gary Cooper in High Five.

    How about a Nebuchadnezzer. There's a standard I can get behind.
