    Thanks all,

    Yes, I need a fatbike! Especially today with 12+ inches coming down.

    I settled on some high quality MTB racing tires. Panaracer Fire XC Pro 2.1. I took the advice of a local LBS...

    Yes, maybe I'll just get a set of those studded tires. I like how the center is clear of studs. I'm running a fancy SON front hub and big light because about half of my 14-mile commute is on a trail...

    Hi all-

    Commuting on a 26-inch wheel bike for the first time in winter (previous years I ran cyclocross tires on assorted 700c bikes) and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a fast rolling...

    I think all my bikes end up as gravel grinders. Indianapolis has so few interesting places to ride that you really need a versatile and sturdy bike.

    From new to vintage:

    I have one. The new one in silver, all parts still in the bags and never mounted. I'm looking for one of the older ones (MTB) in silver. But I'd consider other trades. PM me if you're interested.

    I like these racks, but they are sometimes hard to find. My experience is that going with the wrong sized rack will result in a tilted rack platform. I jut put a vintage (tall) one on a modern Surly...

    Beautiful bike. I watched that on Indy C-List and if it was my size I would have snapped it up in a second. Tried unsuccessfully to get a friend to buy it.

    Beautiful.

    I agree with the above posters. Avoid shifting both derailleurs at the same time. A properly adjusted rear derailleur will not be able to push the chain further than the gear closest to the spokes....
  10. 2012 Big Dummy color and bags / Bar suggestions.

    Has anyone seen the new Big Dummy in the grey, or seen any pics?

    My LBS said he couldn't get the grey one until mid-April, don't know if that's nationwide. The black is in stock so maybe someone...

    Have to say that it does seem time to try a "higher quality" frame, just to see the difference. An 80s Trek or decent Nishiki (or the like) could provide an interesting comparison for under $100 and...

    Thanks, the cable color is growing on my but it really looked like dark forest green on the website and in person it is more of a teal. No big deal.

    I got this frame and fork in a trade with another C&V member last fall and it is finally finished.

    The goal was a fast rough stuff/light tourer and I think it worked out.

    Where do you live? $200 is more than $50 but that is an interesting bike, with interesting components, in what looks to be very restorable shape. $200 seems to me like a decent price to pay for a...

    My two cents: lock your bike up where it is legal, safe, and not causing others a problem. It's a bike, so put a u-lock on it and lean it...

    How would you compare the Hookworms to Big Apples? I'm working on another build (1993 Bridgestone XO-3) and I want big (1.75-2.00) and fast tires for a rough stuff ride.

    Seems to me it's a total loss and the only comparable new bike is a surly LHT. I'd try another bike store.
