  1. Interesting ... I find Permatex Plastic Welder, which is a 2-part epoxy, and Permatex Plastic Bonder, which appears to be a cyanoacrylate activator. Both products are new to me. Anybody have experience with either? I don't have a broken KLF 30, but this might be good general info.

    Update: I bought the Michelin Lithion 2 for US$27 from Jenson USA. Just installed the rear tire -- it fits, with only 2½ mm to spare. (So when I hit 100 mph or so the tire might expand enough to rub.) Haven't done a test ride, yet.
  3. I've had very poor luck with epoxy -- or any kind of glue -- on plastic.
  4. No. FIR filters have whatever delay you design them to have. For a linear-phase (constant delay) filter, the lower the frequency the greater the delay, but not due to the wavelength. It is due to the longer period of the waveform. Of course, the wavelength is also related to the period of the waveform, so in the end the effect is the same. That is generally correct, but there are also many other things that affect the tap count.
  5. It's not just Parts Express that hides the diffraction slot -- B&C hides it in their literature, too. I just went through exactly this situation with a friend who asked me about this horn. I suspected a diffraction slot and my friend contacted B&C about it. They confirmed it.

    Thanks, but at US$56 each, that's a bit more than I want to spend. For that price I can buy two Lithion.

    Thanks. Fantastic puncture resistance https://www.bicyclerollingresistance.com/road-bike-reviews/continental-gatorskin-2015. Not quite as wide or tall as the Michelin Lithion 2. I'm not sure whether to go for the puncture resistance of the Conti or the comfort of the Michelin. The season is still young.

    For competition I agree, but my racing days are 35 years and 35 pounds in the past. 🙁 Age is starting to catch up with me, but I still try to push hard. Thanks for your suggestion. Yes, in fact I've been looking at the Michelin Lithion 2. I measured the clearance between the rim and the rear brake bridge, and it's only 27 mm, give or take a millimeter measurement error. I'm finding that many 700x25c tires are taller than that, so my selection is even more limited than I thought. The Pro 4 Service Course that you mentioned looks to be a really nice tire, but at 26 mm height it's just too close for comfort. EDIT: Just measured the front clearance -- it's even less, at 26 mm.

    Out of production for decades, now. Currently running Vittoria. They're just OK. Zero road feel. Have never run Conti or Michelin, except on my motorcycle, so that's not really any kind of comparison. There actually wasn't an other question. On my old Waterford Paramount, I always ran 700x25 on the front and 700x28 on the rear -- necessary given my weight. But anything larger than 700x25 on my current Fuji rubs the brake bridge, so I run 700x25 front and rear. I inflate to 100+ psi, but still occasionally get a pinch flat due to my weight and the miserable condition of some of the roads around here. (You don't always have time to bunny-hop a pot hole, or even rise out of the saddle enough to unload the tires, especially in a paceline if the leaders don't bother to point out road hazards.) Yes, thanks, I'm well versed in flat repair, out of sheer necessity. Been riding for over 55 years.

    Thanks for the suggestions on retailers, but I am looking for recommendations on make and model of the tires themselves. - Greg

    Hey, folks, I know that there are several bicyclists here on the Forum. It's time for some new clincher tires for my Fuji Altamira, and I'm looking for suggestions. The frame won't allow for anything larger than a 700 x 25c. Roads around here range from OK to pathetic, and these tires have to support my 225 lb carcass without puncturing or giving me snake-bite flats. My favorite tires of all time were the old Avocet Fasgrip slicks, so if anything can come close to that kind of road feel I'd be very happy. Thanks, Greg
  12. All kidding aside, I recall the SA3000 to be quite a nice sounding preamp.

  14. What power level and price range?
