    Hi Pierce,
    Do you find that these Ergo pedals really hold your feet in place like the BMX pin pedals do?

    I haven' tried them. Which is why I was asking.

    I'm thnking they'd be good for a 'festival bike' that you're riding in flipflops or whatever, that the pin pedals chew up too much.

    Been told by a couple folks who know, those Handspun wheels are VERY good for the price, you can't buy the parts that cheaply, and they are quite well made. Being an old school kinda rider, I like 36H. And I like how those Velocity rims are relatively unadorned with branding graphics (ditto, my Globe frame has no big ugly decals on the main tubes).

    The cheap noname hub 32H alex rim wheelset on my Globe has already got some side-to-side funkies on the front wheel and I've only put about 50 miles on the bike. :-/
    I'm really happy with these wheels, especially price/value. If Velocity and Handspun ( Owned by QBP ) can pay more attention to details when building these wheels, it will be absolutely perfect wheelset.

    Hey everybody, I'm new around here. This is my Ghost 5100 cross, which I've had for about 3 weeks. It's my main mode of transport since I got it, and it's been pretty awesome so far.

    I may change out the frame next year since this one is obviously too large.

    You guys should be brave and run these flat bar road bikes in the Hot or Not thread in the 41.

    Before you do you must follow some very strict rules (for the 41)
    Drive side shots only
    Chain on large chain wheel and smallest cog on the cassette
    Valve Stems on the bottom
    Cranks either in line with the bottom chain stay or in line with the seat tube (depending on which country you're from)
    No water bottles
    No saddle bags
    No pump
    No lights
    No dork discs
    Slammed stem with either a 5mm spcer at the top or nothing at all.
    lol

    Nice to see a SOMA on here. We get tons of Surlys but SOMA's seem to be much more rare. I look forward to getting home (and away from my employers internet filter) and taking a look at this bike. The Double Cross is on my short list of possible frames if I decide I need a new one.
