i have a bar end lever and a cross lever on my compact drops to allow me to have multiple braking positions depending on where im riding. But thats not practical for quick removal at the track.
doesnt look look like you have much drop out to work with as far as chain tension?
feel like it should have risers not drops
went from s100 to omniums. not overly impressed for the money.
has anyone figured out the fitment of the french 75 and sram omniums?
ive several comments on them not fitting but ive also seen several builds with them.
Thing that irritates me is that when i see people that are on expensive bikes that have no appreciation for the machines they are on and dont maintain them a lick
why not make a sheath for your lock?
if you know your body and listen to it you should be fine. But legs are something else when they are sore, so it will probably be difficult to do both for the first couple weeks or so depending on...
i did this with a cross lever and a tt lever mounted at the end of my drops to give me a cleaner look and let me have a lever when im in the drops
is that $800 worth of wheels on a $150 bike?
59 cm Schwinn Madison Track bike Fixed Gear
arent new 735 frame sets about that much? maybe 650...?
asking top dollar and this is how they maintain the bike?
"You should know that the rivet fell out of the rear brake lever. I didn't want to have to replace the whole thing, so I put a piece of...
are refrigerator's lighter than i realize? im a fairly large guy and dont see that being possible personally.
^ that wrap job is top notch
ever considered a mid 90s rigid hybrid/flat bar road bike that came with 700s, rapid fire shifters and usually cantilever brakes? It would probably be sweet at as a 1x7. Ive seen cannondales,...
id say a hard tail that has a lock out on the fork with some street friendly tires. That would be my personal choice over a hybrid anyways.
looks like a standard BSA bottom bracket. I would recommend a shimano UN55 68x110 or 68x113 if you are going to be getting a single speed crank set.
make sure the crank arms are tight, cant tell you the number of "internet fixie's" ive seen with loose crank arms.
i agree. i have a ss im building right now with just a front brake and it does not feel safe on the couple of test rides ive been on.
if your tires in good shape, id suggest looking into a 27 1/4 rear fixed/free wheel.
you can get a double walled rim with a sealed bearing hub. it would allow you to leave the original brakes and...
ironically came across this vid the other day
the only varsity ive ever seen that i like. i was also curious how light you could get them. 30% weight reduction isnt bad but dang still 29 lbs.
Started bringing this thing back to life. The wheels are not my exactly my cup of tea but I got them on a bike I stripped and flipped on CL.
