    Thanks guys. So any idea if it's Taiwanese or American?

    Also, what are your opinions on the ride? I never actually built this one up, and now I'm second-guessing my selling it rather than actually...

    I know this matter is settled already, but when I once asked a big Ti maker about making me a fancy Ti track frame, he told me there was "No point," and I should stick with aluminum, which was, in...

    Is this a Paramount?

    It was sold to me as a generic 853 steel Schwinn frame, possibly Waterford, possibly Taiwanese. There is no serial number, or other indicator of origin, and now I'm trying to sell it. Since the...

    I'm relatively certain that T1s of this year came with some kind of outboard-bearing Truvativ crank, which means that the Truvativ crank in question here should probably work just fine.

    It's a Tiemeyer-made GT, which would generally classify it as a totally badass bike, but unfortunately, in this case, I think you'll be better suited tracking down a real track bike for cheap, rather...

    The Fixed Gear Fever classifieds are a great place to start. Otherwise, your local cycling messageboard. Finally, eBay. Come winter, it's very easy to pick up top-shelf track components for cheap.

    I doubt that Felt's bike designers had much to do with this one; except for the graphics and some components, this thing smacks of "catalog fixie."

    I don't know anything about their bullhorns, but the track drops are clearly a step above your entry-level "fixie" junk from J&B. As I said, it would appear to an objective observer to be made by the...

    I think that the best deal for track drops are the Origin-8 variety. Any bike shop can get them, but ones that cater to track racers or hipsters may well stock them. They seem to be made in the same...

    Wow, the Motobecane is sped'ed significantly better than 2010 FTC. I mean, we all know that the maker of the stem and bar are largely irrelevant, but who wouldn't take Deda over "Fuji Brand X" or...

    Please explain to me what about a Wilier is so much better than a Madone, or any other top-shelf carbon bike.

    Also, as I understand it, George and his brother Rich own Hincapie Sportsware together. Rich runs the company, as Big George is usually busy losing Paris-Roubaix for the 13th time.

    I have some Hincapie stuff from an old team. The chamois is comfortable, but the rest of the material is thick and breathes like crap. The best way I can describe it is "chunky." I actually don't...

    I'm not some kind of Trek-crazy fanboy or anything, but there's really nothing better about a high-end Wilier frame than a comparable Madone.

    Lawyers already charge an (arguably) egregious amount for their services, and a premium for 4 AM phone calls. I'm pretty sure that if a bike shop told a customer "We'll stay here until 8:30 selling...

    I thought this was going to be about how much the Saxo Bank mechanics suck. Because Flanders, Roubaix and yesterday's stage all indicate that they do.

    Has no one hear ever used a dollar bill to boot their tire? It's still the best patch I've seen.
