    Cycling app for iPhone 4?

    So I have an iPhone 4 running Apple's latest OS (7.1.1) and I deeply regret ever upgrading (or downgrading in a sense) it. Every app is sluggish and battery life is horrid. Before iOS 7 was released,...

    I doubt it, but replace your rotor anyway. Try bleeding them again to see if there's still more air in the system. If your rotor is flexing when you brake, your pads and/or caliper may not be aligned...

    I have a front brake on my fixie, and I'm replacing the front tire. Currently it is a Continental Ultra Sport 23mm tire. I'll get a picture of the cracking as soon as I can.

    Need help deciding which tires to toss

    First of all, sorry for the insanely large images.

    I didn't know that was possible either, but I don't see why it wouldn't work! If you do this you'll need to add a few links (two, maybe three) to compensate.

    You can definitely go to 26, but not more. With such a short derailleur cage, your range is very limited. If you find your self wanting more range on the cassette, you'll need to find a longer cage...

    This wasn't during a commute, but it was on the same route as my regular commute. This was along a canal path, with one side paved concrete, and the other a dirt path. This person was on the dirt...

    The grease is blue, not yellow. And I am very very confident in saying I am the only one who has taken this cog and lockring on and off. No loctite either, I'm not that dumb.

    Lockring is the All-City stainless steel lockring, cog is a Surly cog, which I believe is Cro Moly.
  10. Strange color change in grease blue to bright yellow

    Took the rear cog and lockring off my fixie today to do some spoke work and I noticed this strange color change in the grease. I used the exact same grease on both parts, and tightened them on the...

    I was just curious. I don't think 1mm is serious either, but you may have to keep the wheels in better condition and more frequently than if you had more clearance. I personally prefer more...

    I have a quick question here. How does

    I have a quick question here. How does <3mm clearance pose a safety risk? My good friend's road bike can't fit a tire larger than a 700x23c on the rear, otherwise it'll rub against the front...

    When I got this frame from my co-op, it originally came with 90mm dropout spacing (on the front, of course) and I used our frame bending tool to spread the spacing to 100mm. It could very well be...

    I've already ruled out road slope, but the leaning is exaggerated when on a sloped road.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I've kind of branched off from what some of you said and I came up with another possibility. The bike is leaning to the right as opposed to steering/turning to the...

    I've also ruled out myself leaning, because a friend of mine experienced the same issue when I asked him to test ride it. Also ruled out the roads as well.

    No, it is adjusted quite well in fact. Could another possibility be misaligned headtube faces?
  21. Bike leans to right with no hands- would new headset correct it?

    My fixie, a converted 1971 Triumph, has had a problem with leaning to the right when I'm ridin with no hands. It's getting pretty annoying, so I started narrowing the causes. Seat misadjusted, no....

    Ughhhhh I absolutely DESPISE it when people tailgate me. When they do that I usually take up the full lane just to show that I'm not going to budge. By not looking around me, I'm hoping to send the...

    Do you look behind you when someone honks?

    I've gotten way too used to not responding at all when someone honks or yells at me when I'm riding. In fact, I've had many friends from my high school call my name when I'm riding, and they get no...
