Hmm, never been to that one. Sounds like the guy just made a rookie mistake, which can happen anywhere. I used to go to Bicycle Revolutions for a lot of stuff. The owner there is a good guy and...
Yeah, he most likely didn't know what he was talking about. What shop was this? I used to live in Philly.
Not sure if totally punk or totally materialistic.
But isn't the Dura Ace logo half the point?
I wear size 9-10 Chucks to ride very often. I'm running medium MKS toeclips, which feel OK. I would've gone for the large if I was planning on using them for skidding or actual foot retention. You'd...
Careful out there.
Nice, looks like a fun ride. How's the braking on those Ellipses?
That Bianchi is
I'm not the type to give a **** about cars, but that is a fine looking machine.
Today I did 30 miles. Had to map it out on Google afterward because Strava went bonkers on me. I checked it halfway through my ride and it told me I had gone 40 miles at an average 49 mph. Probably...
Cruising the majestic Los Angeles River.
Check Ebay for good deals on used high-end saddles as well. You can find some good stuff in decent shape for around $50, often less.

I think that's one issue where almost everyone can agree that no one needs to care what anyone else is doing.
If you cut a cross section of the rim and looked at it head-on, it would look kinda like a box -- hence, box section.
You can replace the existing hub with a different one, provided it has the same number of spoke holes. You will likely need all new spokes, though, and the cost of rebuilding the wheel might end up...
A chain tensioner will not work for fixed riding. And it sounds like what you'd be doing is removing the wheel and flipping it every time you want to change? Sounds tedious to me. Here's the hub I...
I can't think of any bike with a dropout big enough to accommodate drilling out a derailleur hanger. Might be possible to use a hanger that mounts on the wheel axle. But then how you'd fit a geared...
I've now got a Pre Cursa frame on the way. Heeeeelp, can't stop buying ****.
The intimidation factor of clipless goes away VERY quickly.
Yeah but that grey is super uggo.
Leader geo is a little weird because they have steep angles but long wheelbases. I could never get really comfortable on mine, though it was probably a combination of fit issues, frame geometry...
