    Yes, foot retention is great if you want to spin for efficient power. All I'm saying is that if your bike has both front and rear brakes, you do not need foot retention. If you have some very steep...

    You actually don't need foot retention at all, if you are running brakes (front and rear).

    Those seem like nice enough cranks, but 151 bcd? Don't know how easy it's going to be finding new rings to go with that, especially since it comes with a 50t ring which is fine if you're riding on...

    Link is borked, but it looks like you bought a Masi. Solid bikes that seem to be quite popular in my city. Shouldn't give you any problems and you can feel good about upgrading your parts here and...

    Hmm... I actually didn't take anything off of my bike. But you're right, I'm getting out the drill when I get home.

    Also, love the smug and superior "brah". You're like the guy that trolls the...

    Y'know, I don't wanna be "that guy", but seriously? What happens when your wheel collapses dropping off a curb? What happens when you bust a crank? What happens when your handlebar breaks?

    These...

    I couldn't tell you how much actual distance ride in any given time period, but I commute to and from work four days a week, but the ride is only about 15 minutes. Some of those days I detour to the...

    What are you on about? Are you just here to rag on people, because the words you strung together don't even make sense.

    I'll address your cons first:

    Foot position just becomes natural. You'll either learn to lengthen your line with some gentle and aware weaving/carving or you'll learn to unweight your back wheel...

    I suppose not, but perhaps he can get a free rebuild out of them and then take it to the new shop and get it properly trued.

    These are not satisfactory answers. These are garbage answers. I've been riding a wheelset for about 8 or 9 years now, Mavic rims, Miche hubs and a quality build by a friend with a shop who spent...

    Nice, clean ride, but from a purely aesthetic standpoint the angle of your bars drives me mad.

    Is it common to go without a lock ring on the track? I rode my local 'drome a couple times back in the day, but I just used my street rig with the proper drops and some fresh rubber.

    Bontrager and Giant stems are ugly, imo. I'd go with the VO. I guess it depends on if colour or form is more important for your build.

    Then again, what do I know? Five out of my six bikes have...

    Whatever that pin is holding your chain together does not belong there. Find the correct pin, take out that link and put a new one in, or buy a new chain. The noise you're experiencing may be that...

    That's a damned delightful looking bike. You must be tall, based on that head tube and the length of your stem/bar/lever combo.

    Go to your LBS and ask for a new freewheel. They run around $15 to $20 and unless they have a manufacturing defect it should run fine until you wear the teeth out. A hundred dollar, or even $75...

    I'm voting chain too tight as well. What you want to do is loosen your hub bolts and pull the hub back as far as you can by hand then lightly snug the bolts down. Then slowly rotate the wheel,...
