PROBIKEWRENCH.COM Featured on The FredCast

Last week, I had the privilege of being asked to join David Bernstein on his internet cycling podcast, “The FredCast.”  It’s one of the most (if not THE most) popular cycling podcasts on the internet today.

David wanted some insight as to what cyclists could expect when going into their local bike shop for a spring tune-up.  I also gave a few good tips about what minor repairs cyclists could do to their own bikes to keep them in good working order, and what kind of tools the home mechanic needed to have on hand in their workshop/garage.

You can find “The FredCast” online at http://www.thefredcast.com.  There are links to all the shows and the show’s sponsors there.  You can find Show #148, where I’m featured, at http://www.thefredcast.com/?p=1258.

Cane Creek Headset Fit Finder

On VeloReviews Podcast #2, I answered a question regarding the number of standard sizes for internal/integrated headsets and how to find which one is right for your bike.  I advised to contact the manufacturer of the bike, via their website, or to use FSA’s Headset Gauge to find out for sure (as seen below).
In my constant search for technical innovations in cycling, I have stumbled across a new tool that has come into existence. Cane Creek Cycling Components, makers of the 110 Headset platform (which has a 110 Year Warranty – it’ll outlast YOU), has created a seemingly foolproof database of most major manufacturers and models and their headset standards.  It’s easy… you type in the brand, model, and year of your bike, and… voila!  It tells you exactly which Cane Creek Headset(s) will work with your bike.  A screenshot is found below:
