    Mine is probably my favorite bike, the one that I couldn't live without. She's seen several front racks and cranksets over the years, but the overall drivetrain has stayed the same. Drops with...

    Just for an opposing view, I hated my s3x. The amount of mechanical resistance of using the planetary gears made it feel like you were still working just as hard in the lower gears than you would...

    Early '60s Fiorelli -- as found photos

    I can't seem to find a complete bike shot, but here are some pics of a Fiorelli I found a couple years ago. Lots of patina, the bronze paint matches rust nicely from 10ft.

    Visit your LBS and have them order you a stem from J&B. Their house brand Origin8 has a couple of different stems with long quills for ~$25-30.

    We tried a sample bottle of Chain L at work over a course of a month or two of wet commuting. We all seemed to notice it wearing off quickly with the first application, however we were all trying...

    I still haven't made it up to the Freemont store, but Recycled in the U district also has some drool worthy bikes hanging as well as a small display case of cool parts they've obtained.

    Peugeot bmx that I found for $15. Tried selling it $25 a few times without any nibbles. Decided to recreate a bike from a former ss/fixed forum member. Mtb handlebar for seatpost, suicide fixed...

    That Mavic adapter really limits tire size. 28s are as big as you're likely to be able to fit.

    No shim needed. It orginally had a 22.2 fluted alloy post (remember how quick those bent). The handlebar is just inserted until the sweep stopped it. I tried a steel bar and it bent in two blocks....

    Yes, every person at the shop has had that same stupid grin on their faces when they ride it. There was talk of doing hotlaps at work...

  12. Just finishing up new Peugeot project -- Not what you think....

    Years ago in this forum I remember seeing a deathtrap-hybrid of a bmx bike and a fixed gear. It was from a rider in Toronto, Shiznaz (RIP). Over the years I've lost the pics of his Haro, but never...

    Big Apples in a 2.00. I love mine with the PerformanceLine bead/belt/whatever, the cheaper version isn't nearly as nice.

    K-rads are fairly light for their size. I've only used them in 2.0 size and liked them alot around 40psi. Unless the roads are really nice, I'd trade any weight penalty for a softer ride.

    While I haven't done it yet with my Double Cross, the Soma has a higher BB than the Surly. Google 650b conversions for it and you'll find several.

    I don't THINK it's nickel (it's been 10yrs since I sold it). I'm pretty sure if it was it would have started dulling in the amount of time I owned it. It stayed pretty shiny during a full year of...

    Sure. It's a Dutch city bike and almost certainly has horizontal ends. The only scary part is that alot of those frames have bolted on seatstays, which can bend/fail under hard riding.

    Two of us at the shop have our front brakes on our fixed gears setup purposely to squeal. If we need to use the brake, anyone nearby KNOWS about it.

    Anyone tell me more about this frame. I know it's designed for FGFS. However, looking at the geometry figures I was able to find it looks like normal geometry except for the short seattube (my...
