TBL Onyx Pro(ss converted), Pake SS (starting to look kinda pimped)
i remember it well...we were joking that if we'd closed the doors he'd have won just by running himself against the boards. what he needed was a mechanism to lean that back wheel, it was taking on some serious lateral pressures.
Ciocc fixed, Raleigh record winter bike, Bianchi Grizzly SS, Pinarello Surprise, Raleigh Twenty, Bridgestone Picnica, various sundry bits and pieces...

That sounds like fun. We could sit by the road side smoking big stinky cigars.

I'm running 26"x1.25 specialized slicks on my MTB now but am always looking for something different (read better). Even pumped to 90 or 100 psi I can still feel and visually see the sidwalls of the tire folding over when I'm out of the saddle pedalling hard. They work....but still a little unsettling... like I could rip the tire apart if I bounced off a curb at the wrong angle
I'm going to hit up urbane/cavern in a couple. You guys think I need new brake levers for bullhorns?
And for ****s sake, where on earth can I find Deda bar tape locally (in stock, not order I can do that myself) ? Free beer to anyone who knows.
you can run those levers on bullhorns but the cable routing can be a bit of a hassle. The best brake action will result from putting the levers on with the lever blade facing forward...to aid in a clean cable run. The downside is if you ever clip anything with yer bars you will likely hit the lever...not good.
i haven't used 650c rims in years but i remember trying to mount a skinny tire on one and it wouldn't take; the tire wouldn't seat properly because the rim was too wide. those tri geek rims (and tires) are a different diameter than a MTB too.
I have some NOS Velocity mtb rims that are super sweet...I will give you a deal. If you are interested, P.M. me. i have also dome quite a few 26" to 650c conversions on peoples mtn bikes. The rim is slightly larger diameter but the brakes usually have enuf reach. This swap makes a mtn bike a little steet rocket.
