Reply to a point? This is what I call dynamic alignment. The tips can effect it and all the hard work of a mechanic will be left dis-functional if the set in the frame works against things like axle bearings .. I really enjoyed this and I think it should be a requirement to read and learn from Dr Bikes - Sheldon before you ask or even ride --performance is the result of loving that bike as much as your own hide.

Those Titanium crank axles where great if you just wanted to weigh the bike, Put a Big sprinter on a bike with one and watch the performance go down.

A fully tuned machine is always going to enhance the rider, and the Mechanic that has the riders program in the process, is going to make a big difference. Listen to each other.. That is my wisdom for today.

Sheldon once again proves his genius. That's one of those--"Duh, why didn't I think of that?" inventions. The only issue I can see is that a bike with misaligned dropouts might bow the axle a little more that one that is properly aligned, but the slight difference is probably the least of one's worries when working on a bike like that.

I remember a fresh mechanic at the shop where I worked who was bragging about how smooth he could adjust a Campy hub, until another mechanic showed him that after clamping into the frame, the valve could be set at 9 o'clock and it was just sit there.

Steve Barner, Bolton Vermont, -18 degrees F this morning, full moon, 2' of snow, does it get any better than this?
