Bicycling Pictures and Other Stuff
The following pages have lots of rather large pictures, all of which link to a jpeg that you
can download. I've put in
decent descriptions, so you can turn image loading off, guess which you'd like, and then
download the jpeg's. The numbers (in parentheses) after each link indicate the approximate
size of all the GIF's on that page, so if you have a medium-fast link, you can guess which
pages will load quicker. Yes, I have a really really fast connection (100Mbps and up, mostly up), but I've tried to keep these pages as simple as I can.
I also have a picture of the Rivendell/Brooks B-17 saddle. (Download

Steven Sheffield began, and Rivendell maintains a page for Rivendell Bicycle Works.
If you ride rollers, and find them as boring as I do, check out my "Rollers Song."
Then there's my corruption of Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz," from a fixed-gear point of view.
Are you a gear chart weenie? Can you handle Excel for the Mac files that have been binhexed (.hqx)?
Or can you handle Excel 98 files with a silly DOS extension (.xls)? If so, I have some Excel spreadsheets that might be of interest to you:
Are you wondering how to use a short cage rear derailleur with a triple crank? Well, I have a rather lengthy explanation of how to do that.
- gc3x7.hqx Compares the Sachs 3x7 setup to a standard 3-chainring 7-speed setup.
- gc3x7.xls Same file, Excel 98 format.
- gc8sp.hqx Compares two 8-speed 3-chainring setups. You can just leave some fields blank for fewer cogs and/or chainrings, and if you're handy with excel, you could modify it to handle 9 cogs.
- gc8sp.xls Same file, Excel 98.
- gcp7.hqx Compares the Sachs and Shimano 7-speed planetary hubs to each other, and lets you compare them to a single chainring, 7-cog freewheel system.
- gcp7.xls Ditto, Excel 98.
- gcplan.xls Planetary chart as above, but adds the Sturmey-Archer 7 and the Sachs 12 and the Rohloff 14. Just Excel 98 this time.
- gcr14.xls Here's one that just compares the Rohloff 14 with a 3x8 setup.
Are you contemplating changing from a double-chainring setup to a triple-chainring setup? I have another lengthy explanation on that too.
