The Breed is a sweet bike but has that stupid 135mm dropout spacing.
Doesn't really matter. It will just have a wider base. Depending on your headset, it may look fine. Here's a carbon fork meant for integrated headsets on my Bianchi:
One of my old roommates had one of these. He got it with the Downhill build kit and DHX air/ float combo (to "save weight," lol) and never rode it except around campus. Pretty jackass.
Some of us actually wear out equipment before replacing it. I know, crazy, right?
There is no (new) geared road bike worth recommending for 300 dollars, IMO.
It is a cyclocross bike. I have no idea what you're rambling on about, but cyclocross bikes use 700c wheels.
Haha, I love that this dude is still here defending himself, days later.
Michelins pretty consistently run large, no matter the type of tire. Their 23mm road tires are usually a 25, and the Racer 29er tires are about a 2.2 though labeled as a 2.1 or 2.0. On the other...
Oh. Hard to recognize a leader without the Aerospokes and 50mm stem.
I'm working in Grant County and I have no qualms about going on long rides in remote areas. It is way more rural here than anything you'll find within 40 miles of Portland, or more. Worrying about...
Is that the newest version of the Kilo TT?
Can't you just photoshop out the dirt during your next glamour shoot?
I freaking suck at riding my bike and even I don't think riding road tires on flat packed gravel like in that photo is anything approaching difficult. This sort of thing is why when people say they...
Why are you carrying your bike?
Cynikal is spot on, especially with his point about torque, which confuses a lot of people. A larger rear cog and smaller chainring is going to put the most torque on a hub.
Lots of SS mountain...
New Shimano 105 or Ultegra. You will need a 10 speed chain and cassette.
Lots of $$ for cosmetics.
I was looking at the Alphas year ago, but heard bad things about durability. Went with A23s and Velocity said you can convert them to tubeless easily, though I haven't tried. They're like half the...
This is the most boring thread title in the history of bikeforums.net.
"Yeah, daddy did it"
Don't do it. At least not if your reasoning is more ground clearance. First of all, I can't think of an off-road situation where you want 60 gear inches and the trails have enough technical...
Scott makes some excellent bikes. Clearly these are not some of them.
Time ATACs on my ss cross and mountain bikes. They feel like the best in-between to the respective strengths and failings of Shimano and Crank Brothers. I have liked Shimano road pedals but don't...
We don't need to know about your weird kinks dude.
