  6. Is all double-butted 4130 created equally?

    I was hoping this would be a good forum to clear this up for me. I see a lot of small-scale frame builders working exclusively with double-butted chromoly, just like the likes of Surly, etc. Outside...

    Anyone here commute with front panniers?

    There seems to be a growing trend at least in the touring community opting out of rear panniers and front loading bikes, specifically with lowrider racks. Anyone do so on their commutes?

    going 1x on my cross bike

    I currently have a compact double and was thinking of going 1x9 on my cross bike. I assume I need a new crankset. Do people ever use track cranksets for this purpose?
