Thought you guys might want to see a pedal refurbishment and modification. Also gives you chance to get aquainted with my blog :cool:

My favorite pedal mod turns 737's into a very nice feeling full floating pedal. Take the two axles out and swap them into the other pedal body so now the right pedal will fit into the left and visa versa. Now you take the baseplate on the pedal and you file off the back lateral stop and half of the inside stop. You leave half of the inside on just for a stop but it is really up to you if you want to dissingage to the inside or not. Now with the cleet you will file off just a little bit of the center part under the back of the cleat. Now your pedals are full float and you will never have a problem getting out of the pedals no matter how much mud you like to ride in. The only problem is if you ever clip into normal SPD's you will pretty much never get out of them because you filed off the part of the cleat that pops it out of the pedal. If you have any old 737's laying around it is a fun little project. I haven't really tried with any other SPD's though.

The bike room is great. I am so envious because my "bikeroom" is the inside hallway of my apartment - it has a very low WAF.
....what's a "WAF"

Wife Acceptance Factor?
LOL - I actually used to have a vintage road bike mounted over the fireplace. The WAF was very high (and suggested by her actually) - for that one bike. The rest are relegated to the garage.

Yep, WAF is Wife Acceptance Factor. I am already pushing it with the pile of bikes and parts that are an ever growing presence. I am open to storage tips regarding maximizing the number of bikes that can be kept in a small space. When I was single I had 5 bikes in a tiny New York studio. There were two on the monitor of my computer. It was madness.
