    My major problem with your view is that it supports an industry with no regard for developing a long-term interest in cycling. These bikes are not made cheap to be reliable; they are made cheap to be...

    So it's not crappy that this bike does not stop safely as-sold? Or that it is assembled so poorly that most bearing will destroy themselves within a year? I'm all for riding cheap bikes and not...

    Yeah, that's why I didn't bother mentioning the crankset. Just run your chain on the inner chainring, OP. You can get replacement cartridge bearings pretty easily. They just might be a pain to remove...

    Strip off the derailleurs and shifters, then either respace the axle for a usable SS chainline and redish the wheel to recenter the rim on the axle (usually not worth doing on older cheap wheels), or...

    I would vote for a Miami Sun Revolutions. It's not the most blinged out bike on the market, but it's no slouch, and the 2.125" tires could easily handle some curb hopping. It will certainly be a...

    Spokes pulling through a rim is hardly a "normal thing", you ******' ding-dong, regardless of miles used. Sidewall cracking from brake track wear is one thing, but spoke holes should not crack under...

    Today I got around to editing and uploading pictures from my moto trip. I should have hit a few of you guys up when I was in the Bay area. Oh, well. Here are some highlights.

    Gonna need some details on that. We have been lucky with no bike thefts, but one time a guy reached into our cash drawer and stole about $100 when we were super busy. We caught it later on security...

    Word. Looking good. Have you tried certifying in SMAW yet? Will you get to do a gas welding & brazing segment? That should really stoke the desire to build your own frame. At least it did for me.

    I would pass for $400. I would not want to ride anything with so much white componentry--it's going to look like ass in short order. I would buy a decent condition used geared bike and strip off the...

    I have personally seen several of these rims have their eyelets pull through. Perhaps a problem with overtensioning spokes. I don't remember if Velomine wheels are handbuilt or machine-built, but...

    The third picture looks like you have attached the housing from your rear brake caliper to your front brake caliper. I think you should install either black or chrome BMX cranks on this build. Some...

    Probably a cheap chainring and/or cog that is not very round. The ellipse causes a tight, slack, tight symptom as the drivetrain circulates. You can try centering the chainring better by following...

    I remember someone riding fixed in the TdF Prologue TT one year, but can't seem to find who it was. I did find an example of Stuart O'Grady riding a fixed TT bike for the '05 Giro Prologue:...

    Whoa, didn't look very closely at the bike until now. Is that a dynamo under the chainstay bridge, AND an engagement lever on the back of the seat tube?! Strange that this rando bike is not set up...

    All is well with the A/C now. We have a balanced 3-phase 240v system, and it was not so bad after watching a few videos. As long as incoming power is turned off I don't see why you guys are so...
