put new lock grips and a used saddle i picked up, on my ride today. really liking the grips,they dont budge, my old ones would move around on me quite a bit. as for the saddle, lets just say its gonna take some getting used to
Really nice tires there Alphadogg!
28's slicks with 130 PSI will be about the fastest possible rolling tires ever
Here is my 2009 Bad Boy - purchased it for $300 on craiglist in perfect original conditiona and left frame and wheels - evrything else was changed

Weight is about 23.8 and can be reduced by changing the wheels to the road ones.
It does indeed look a bit "bad" ... nice bike

I put some old toe clipped pedals on my bike today. When I say old, I mean 1979 old. They look pretty out of place on my bike. I will take a shot of the bike with them on it either later tonight or tomorrow.
Here she is, with her new (to me) pedals.

My Rocky Mountain RC 30 D
[QUOTE=AlphaDogg;13023831]I just got new tires. They are 28mm and can hold 130psi. My old tires could hold 80psi at 38mm. They are grey Serfas Secas.
how are you liking your new tires? im debating on getting 32 or 28 since im mostly on streets, leaning towards the 28. im currently working with 700x40
I'm just curious what type of frame you have (to avoid them in the future

I use fork mount rack all the time and road bike carbon forks, mtb forks with V-brakes or disk are fit the same into the receiver.
The only thing I don't like about these narrow tires is that sharp rocks on the road always stick in the tires. It makes a thump sound after every rotation of the tire, so it gets pretty annoying. I end up having to stop and pick out the rock so that it stop making the sound. The rocks don't penetrate the tires, so it's all good.
