Agreed, and me too!

I was going to sell mine to fund an All-City Macho Man Disc, because my 51-year-old knees were telling me to get some gears. But my 14-year-old son said, can I have it? So he...

Yeah I wrestled with the same question, but when I found the Deda stuff at a fraction of the cost, I figured it was worth a shot. Love it.

Just a stock AC Macho Man Disc. Their new color scheme is a red-into-white thing (http://allcitycycles.com/bikes/macho_man_disc), but I think orange rhymes with hot.

So far so good. I have one really speedy corner on my daily commute (down a hill and a quick left turn if the light is green), and it feels supremely capable and stable. But not sure if it's a...

Front: Kenda Small Block Eight 35c

Why, yes they are.


Aw, I'm only 6'1", 34" inseam. It's a 58cm bike. I'm amazed at how glove-like the fit is.

A buddy of mine who was in the bike biz had a minty Masi fixed gear from 2007 or so. My 11-year-old son saw it and started drooling. Size was right, and my friend gave it to me for a great price.

NBD: Yeah, it's technically a cross/gravel bike, but it's a dream on the road.

All-City Macho Man Disc.

It's like a limousine. Super smooth and stable, even with gravel tires. An absolute joy to ride.

Yeah. My beer belly.

Yes, yes, I get that entirely. If we all rode walmart bikes, there's hardly any need for this forum.

The post about tires and rolling resistance was fab, though. :thumb:

If I don't race, any reason to need something other than Shimano RS21 wheels?

I currently commute around five miles each way on my Surly Steamroller. Not a long ride at all, but there are a few hills, and my 51-year-old knees really like the ability to gear down going up the...

Back in olden times, I went to the University of Minnesota, where squirrels outnumber mosquitoes.

I was biking to my German class, and I ran over one. (A squirrel, not a German.)

Wilier GTS Ultegra. I've had it a couple of months now. You know what? Gears are really, really nice.
