    As far as I'm concerned, if a bikes headtube area takes the brunt of the damage to the point where there is bending of the top and/or downtubes, then I consider the frame trash unless it is...

    I recently had to move from a house that had a dedicated bike room and a garage to a much smaller place with no garage and no spare rooms. I no longer have a garage but have a small shed on the side...

    Its done and dead. All the angles and joint points of the frame are now compromised. When you bend a frame that hard, it just doesn't affect those 2 points, it also affects the joints by the...

    Oh no, the hub was given to me super cheap, 5 dollar donation to them for it. I already have the rims and spokes from a wheel I disassembled a while back. I will put it together and see how it...
  5. Can i use a non-offset 32 hole hub on a standard 3 cross wheel build?

    I got a hub from a friend. It is a no-name hub, probably a joytech or something. I am looking to build up a spare set of disc brake wheels for my disc brake bike (700c). The rim is just a vintage...

    A few of my bikes have mismatched wheels. Never really cared one way or another if they weren't obnoxiously different.

    i'm the complete opposite. On my daily outdoor commuting style rides, my average moving speed is about 10.5 to 11.5 mph. On my trainer, I'm doing around 14-15mph on the average. And I do have my...

    Well I have spun so far 4 times this week. I notice that I am much more tired when I ride on the trainer than I am on the road. I try to push myself. When I setup the trainer, I tighten the...
  9. Is riding the trainer harder than riding on the streets? 380 pound rider here

    I have a Cyclops fluid trainer that I got from a thrift store for 20 dollars this past summer. No wear marks at all on the roller.

    Finally the weather has been so windy and cold that I took it...

    I'm a super clyde and will shoot for at least 200. 300 would be great but I am not sure how the weather will hold out in the NW where I live. I hit exactly 300 in Oct so I was happy with that. I...

    Man, that Trek is way over priced. I see those nineties era Trek 8x0 bikes all day long on CL for around 50-150. Great choice though, strong durable reliable bikes.

    Nothing with any type of suspension unless you are willing to spend at least 2 grand for a new bike. Front suspension forks able to withstand a 390 pound rider are NOT going to be cheap. Same with...

    380 pounds here and during the summer I was riding on some 700x28c tires that I generally kept about 120psi on my Specialized Sequoia. Lately I have been riding my Motobecane Fantom Cross with...

    I had a Mavic Open Pro 28 spoke wheel on an Ultegra hub (smooth as glass). It was one of the older Open Pros. I got it used at my old bike co-op about 2 years ago. I am a bit bigger than you at...

    Here is my latest thing. Got the basic bike for 10 dollars at a yard sale complete. I wanted it because it was a Cannondale. At first when I saw the yard sale ad, I wasn't interested in...

    Funny thing is that is what I thought at first. I saw the bike in an ad for the yard sale on a shop and swap posting on Facebook. I saw the bike and saw the Bud Light on the top tube and...

    I finally got lucky and found a decent Cannondale bike yesterday at a yard sale. For 5 dollars, I got a mid nineties complete Cannondale Bud Light MTB. The bike is in pretty decent shape considering...

    Whooops. I meant to put this in C&V, not general. They are big on MTB drop bar conversions there.

    I hate mixing old Suntour with modern Shimano 7-8 speed indexing. It sometimes can be "ok" but usually just ends up being an exercise in frustration. To me the hassles are not worth the...

    You really think you are averaging 36-48mph?

    As for the bike, don't put the money into it. Totally not worth it in the least. Kind of like putting an expensive paintjob on an junky old Yugo car....
