    6000+ miles in a year and a half! I'm certainly not complaining, as I love the saddle...just stating that there aren't any visible depressions. There may have been at one point, but I tightened the...

    Saddle-to-bar drop and saddle choice

    I'm planning a build that I want to feel a lot like my most comfortable current bike, but singlespeed instead of geared. I've chosen a frame with very similar geometry, and now I'm trying to decide...

    It's a couple things, but you're definitely not wrong! The front fender is a Toba of some sort that I got for free after destroying my original Blackburn Cloudburst (longer than the Toba, but not...

    It's not completely ridiculous here...I managed to ride about 6 miles around Malden, MA, to see what my commute route looks like. Bike paths weren't cleared yet, and the main roads were iffy at...

    Here's one from Saturday morning's ride to work...it seems that my particular fender/tire combination isn't particularly effective at preventing spray from light, powdery snow:

    It's not horrible out, I'll probably take my Franken-3-speed out for a ride later. You're right about the shops not being open today, though! I only know of one in the area that stocks Berthoud...

    Not sure you understood. Aside from the fact that I don't own a single pair of bike shorts, the issue is the cloth-on-cloth rubbing. It bugs the hell out of me, because I feel like I can't move...

    Yeah, I was looking at that, too. Thing is, I'm worried about the texture. I have this thing about grippy materials rubbing against my clothes...like, I can't stand suede-backed leather guitar...

    Part two of this question: The highest points of my saddle are just under 2" higher than the top of my handlebars (not counting brake levers). With this kind of drop, how likely am I to like the...

    Brooks Cambium vs. Gilles Berthoud?

    Planning a build for what's intended to be a single-speed alternative/backup to my Bianchi Volpe. It'll probably see some wetter weather use than the Volpe currently does (although not as much as my...

    My main reasons for the modern frame are geometry (I like the steep seat tube combined with tall and relatively shallow-angled headtube), and the ease of finding a stem with a removable faceplate...

    I'm looking more for opinions on cosmetic details, figured C&V was the place to ask for the aesthetic I'm after.
  15. Help me spec out a classic-looking modern steel build?

    So here's the deal: I'm replacing a bike that was totaled in a collision with a car, and I finally know how much I'm getting to go toward a replacement, and I've got a pretty good idea of what I want...

  18. Mounting both a headlight and a canti brake cable hanger on a fork crown possible?

    Pretty much the question in the title...is this doable at all? Seems like the brake cable hanger would get in the way of pretty much every headlight mount I've seen.

  21. Choosing between two similarly-functional frames with key differences

    For a single-speed all-purpose commuting/transportation bike, I have two frames in mind, and I'm trying to choose between them.
