    Check your crank arm bolts (where the crank arms bolt onto the bottom bracket spindles). I just lost my first ever left-side crank arm. :/

    Havana Club Anejo (seven year old Cuban rum) with Sprite. I've never used Sprite as a mixer for rum before...they definitely work well together!

    Great thread, you guys are an inspiration! I'm 33 but hope I'm still in great health and still riding in my 60s and 70s! Riding fixed gear with front and rear brakes will definitely help me get there...

    Not only that, I swear some LBSs have mechanics who don't know their asses from their elbows, or don't really care to fix your bike up right!

    Thanks guys! I did watch several videos and used the parktool site and it still took me all day to get it just right; I didn't think I'd have to increase the cable tension to get the derailleur to...

    I now live in HK and I wouldn't say there are anymore scammers than usual! HK has some very, very nice bikes on the roads.

    HK doesn't have any import duty, so even if the bike is sent by FedEx or...

    Fixed my Front Derailleur!

    Just got back into biking after a 10-year hiatus and my new bike was having shifting issues, even after I took it to an LBS to set it up. The guy got the brakes right and told me to check out the...

    True, but the specs on the Eastside are good and $715 isn't a bad price for one considering it has to be shipped over from Taiwan. I just have to wait until the end of the month...

    I live in Hong Kong--they originally offered to ship from Taiwan for $300 (USD), but I said I'd just take a frame for the 20% off. Then on Monday they did the Eastside for $395 shipped, so I jumped...

    Also, to further complicate things, I'm a stone's throw away from Colossi's factory, and prices on their frames are very fair here.

    Well the Fyxation is chromoly and the Cinelli is aluminum--would be nice to have a steel-framed bike for a change! I don't mind running cantis. Would they work with the smaller wheels/tires? I...

    Cinelli Mash SSCX on 700x28c tires?

    A local dealer has the '13 Mash SSCX for a very nice price. Could I run 28c tires on it? I picked up an Eastside Fyxation on Cyber Monday for a good deal, but since I'm in Asia they're going to ship...

    I'm 5'11.5", so I think a 56 or 57 would be just about right, but it depends on the manufacturer and the individual bike. Hopefully my bike fits me well. I can always let it go locally--who knows,...

    Building my first fixed gear bike

    I agree, until you get up close! It's a $65 (retail) Chinese market fixed gear. The seatpost is so crappy that there is a pebble in the clamp to prevent it from snapping under the riders' weight. The...

    That Eastside looks pretty sweet, but out of stock in 58 cm and the shipping will cost me almost as much as the frame. Since I live in Hong Kong, I'd just buy a complete bike from across the border...

    The only dangerous part is the seatpost IMO--the bottom bracket is fine, but has a cracked plastic cover on one side. I can probably work a notch into the bolts so they can be removed with a large...
