Lol sorry, venting about someone today that does this in conversation and text here.

Write a report to say "no" in the personal case.

Ive been wanting to try carbon deep profile wheels recently.

Those wheels make me want to even more.

That chainring looks HUGE.

Props given for excellent explanation and cutaway diagram.
We have them at work and they were custom made for us... let me see if we have enough to spare one.

What does that ford part look like? Also what kinda bike do you have- the valves stick out a little bit and might interfere with linkage or something on certain frames.

It looks like this:


Thread on the modification can be found here: Fox Float nitrogen fill thread

The bike is a 2011 Trek Remedy 8. As far as I can tell, there should be no clearance problems at all if I were to replace the screw with a valve fitting that stuck out up to an inch or more.

Interestingly, as I was replying to your post and looking up the Ford part, I came across a thread which suggested using this valve from Amazon:
Fox Racing Schrader Assembly Fox Racing Schrader Assembly



I couldn't verify that it's the same threading, though, nor that anyone has successfully used it on the RP2 shock. I'd be interested in your thoughts on that.

Or, if you do have a spare one of yours lying around, I'd be grateful to buy one from you.

I know for a fact that the Fox part you have does NOT work- the threads are the wrong size. You should order one of those Ford parts and try that. Our valves work pretty much identical to that. If it doesn't work, I can probably send one of our valves.

You'll be fine on clearance with that frame...

Anyone have a pair of old 7spd RSX integrated brake/shifters for sale? I'm converting an old steel frame to newness. Having to reach to the down tube all the time gets old, and at times a bit squirrely. This is about as much as I'm willing to invest into road biking - sorry.

I am so close to excellent trails that the MTB is where any cycling funds go - which are not many as it is.

Cool, thanks. I ordered the Ford one for $15 shipped. The procedure I read involves drilling a hole through the puck behind the set screw. Is there a reason to do this instead of just removing it altogether?

the puck is made of rubber and will act as the seal between the shock body and the valve- i'd do what that other thread says. Normally you stick a needle through the puck to fill, then tighten the set screw and it closes the needle hole.

let me know how the valve works out...

Cannondale CAAD10 52cm Frameset

Tempting. Seems pricey though.

I don't get it.

You can buy fully built CAAD 10's for $1000. Much better ROI there to buy it and then sell the parts off.

1. Show us a build CAAD10 for $1k
1a. How much do you expect to get for poverty RS10 wheels, poverty FSA crank, and poverty 5800 derailleurs?
2. Please, STFU with ROI ****.

There was a bunch of $1000 CAAD10's through the winter.

Doesn't appear to be the case now since its common time to get out of the house.


I almost bought an ultegra (6700) CAAD10 through the winter, but it was $1,200 and I didn't have the cash at the time.

I shopped CAAD10s from November-February and I never saw a 54cm bicycle nor frame at a cost that justified not going $100-200 more for "new with warranty". I really hear this a lot about CAAD10s, but i don't know of anyone who was able to find a 52 or 54cm frame/bicycle that was worth buying used. If you ride a 50cm or 58cm+, then you can find many more deals. I'm sure you found one, single offer of a 6700 CAAD10 for $1200 with no dents and no rash with almost no wear, but it was the only one, ever. I clearly can't go to eBay or CL and pick one up right now because there are none on there.
