You guys aren't actually using these old plastic bottles are you?
Leave Hawaii to go to Taiwan? LOL might as well dive bomb into a pile of doo
Sounds like you have a lot of good ideas, just do them and start creating something there on the big island.
I had one that was stolen Speciale Limited. Loved it
I just love mine. It's a nice, lugged, triple butted steel frame
It's the best riding bike i've owned in a long time. That's including my carbon road bikes.
I wish Fuji made a road...
Looks like your bike is very similar to the caad bikes in materials but the geometry is quite different.
Much taller head tube and slacker geo focused on more relaxed riding.
I have a few pairs and if you want a bit looser fit, get a size larger
They are water resistant as you describe but nothing heavy. The blue dye washes away fairly quickly and the tan color ones...
All new cars have clearcoat except some solid colors. Non-metallic black, red, white, etc typically are single stage with no clearcoat.
water based has no effect on what you clean or protect the...
forget all that stuff. It's just a waste of money.
If you want to protect the front end, get clear 3M installed and just wash and wax regularly.
I know the new car babying thing but once you get...
It makes a drastic difference for me if the stem or saddle is even 5-10mm off,
different geometry means a lot of differences can account for the discomfort.
You can measure distances, but...
e, d (upside down), f, a,b,g,stem,c
no way to tell for sure unless you show the whole thing but the fact you are asking means you need to go to a shop
Nice, this was my favorite color scheme of this style Colnago. I think Rabobank used the orange one?
This was just before they used those gimmicky and ugly vagina chainstays
Paint looks a little...
I'm with the seller on this.
After selling stuff on CL, you get all kinds and someone that picky over a $40 bike will never be satisfied.
105 v Ultegra differences
-about half pound lighter
-more precise machining, will perform better for a longer period
-so it's a bit more durable
-different gearing selections
You said it was a pita, not me
I'm saying that system has nothing to do with a bicycle's system.
And you forgot the rest of what I said
Boardman looks great, I would get that. Plus it's 9spd and the others are 8 speed
You also might look into ebay or craigslist for some 53/39 Dura Ace or Ultegra cranks and 9 speed Dura Ace parts...
Yes it is.
Just like when the industry forced everyone to go to indexed shifting.
or when they forced everyone to go to integrated shifters
or when they forced everyone to go from 7 to 8 to 9 to...
Someone with a VFR motorcycle- linked brake system with something like 6 or 7 bleeding screws- means nothing relative to a bicycle.
I bleed brakes and it's easy on my cars and trucks as well as mtb,...
I believe the logic of the fork mount, as with mtb disc brake mounts, is that you are not pulling on the mounting bolts and relying solely on the threads and bolt head against braking force.
People have that same conversation right now, and turn cv bikes into fixies.
batteries and mineral oil won't be available in the future?
black seatpost, lol
nothing specific but that's a lot of setback. Unless you need it, maybe a nice straight Thompson or something
Yeah I hear you about modding for fun but that's a clean bike,...
I have Chrome knickers, and like them a lot
handy features built in for riding
But, I would rather wear pants or shorts since you can't wear knickers everywhere and not feel like a tool.
you really have to look at what is actually out there now.
I think it's really clean and elegant, and it's only going to get better.
Rim wear may not be a concern for the recreational rider but I...
that bike looks great as is. The Alfine 8 is nice, as are the disc brakes. Nice setup all around.
I would change the bars to narrow straight and change the seatpost, but that's just...
