tubeless or tubed?
yeah, I totally told him to buy a smaller freewheel
guy says he has bmx background, he probably gets what a gear ratio is. depending on when he rode bmx, they used freewheels that went down to 12t...
all fillet brazing looks like that.
eric at winter bikes is killing it on the lugs and brazing. seriously beautiful shore lines going up in there
the idea that fixies are being ridden by anyone remotely hipster is pretty far off the target. that ship has sailed on to randonneur/mini touring and hardtail 29ers/650.
pretty sure every...
acs on the cheap, white industries for a good one
don't buy smaller than a 16t. different diameter. some 15t freewheels are available in the proper size, but better to play it safe.
definitely threaded headset, you can see the locknut
yep 58, need something more around 54. It might be going to a friend, but if he backs out i still have most of the original nuovo record that it came with (albeit in cosmetic condition similar to the...
bumping an old thread coz why not
assuming OP meant stuff like this?
raleigh that doesn't fit me and will probably be on the way out (still have all the original parts in a box)...
have: silver thomson x2, 17deg, 100mm extension, 31.8 clamp
want: same in 120mm ideally. want at least 10 deg rise, silver, and 31.8 barway
120mm formula with 10-15mm of washers, i believe you'll need M8 or M10 washers. throw those under the locknut on either side
**** titanium and **** david lynskey and the cracking piece of **** horse he rode in on
or a low. looks about the same price as a mash
as far as i can tell he had a lot of difficulty finding a builder that could put out a large enough number of frames for a decent price that would be willing to use filler aluminum and filing the...
bumpin this to see if there's any more real world experience with this frame. a friend is selling one and i'm interested. i'm also wondering if this frame is actually good, or if it's mostly urban...
i'm such a rebel, talking about my friends flipping bikes then deciding that they'll hook up bros instead.
brb, hoarding all the food in the world so just my friends can eat.
i think you can have it a little above the top of the cut and be okay, i know there's some leeway on road frames with ISMs. the danger of having it too high above the cut comes from damaging the...
you grease the threads on the cog and lockring first?
rotafix or a good chainwhip/lockring should be fine (seriously, i'm in love with the shimano track tool). hunker down on it with all your (or...
was about to say this. vinegar treatment can help too, it's an amazing solvent for cleaning and doesn't stink once it dries.
thinking about buying some tools for when i move out of davis and shop bro is now too far away to reasonably borrow tools from. mostly cone wrenches, felcos, and some pin spanners.
other thing i'd...
i use metric allens and metric sockets the most, along with necessities like good tire levers (i like pedros) and a good floor pump (i use a silca) (i'd also like a shimano track tool, which has a...
my mind is completely bottled
well he bought them to hook up people who missed out on the deal.
and even if he was marking them up, there isn't a big margin for markup when citygrounds is selling them with a fork for 350, and...
yummygooey: lollin, that's my friend's bike.
and loving how non-integrated fork and bar clamp size get called out before twisted spokes.
yo carlton you like my new grocery getter?
