Oh, I tweaked a bit with PM settings, maybe I messed something up. I sent you an email, anyway.

And who are YOU to tell ME what to do? I'm giving a piece of advice from my own experience. Don't like it - ignore it and STFU.
Going downhill is the best part. Don't use the brake, just resist the pedals. Excellent exercise.
I do warm ups for my knees. I'm very anal about my knees, so worry about something else, ok?
With what? He'll blow me away with his propeller cadence? I ride 50 miles a day easily. And not on a pansy SS, but on fixed gear, with a good gear.
The important thing here is that track cycling...
He won't develop any muscles this way, that's for sure. Spinning techniques and good cadence - yes, but no muscles.
I rode 50 miles almost everyday last week on my fixed gear 48/17. I even made 80 miles a day on it. With average speed of 17-19mph. That's not hard at all, I'm changing the gear for 48/16 tomorrow...
Ah, my first experience with a fixed gear. I was so scared of it, lol.
How about putting a rear brake? Not cool?
Axles are 8mm, and you also need a 110mm hub (113 is for chain tensioners). I know that Dura-Ace and Gran Compe hubs have such spacing. There's maybe more.
Have a problem with my motherland?
And to all of you. Don't be so ****ing mean. People ask in the other threads much more stupid questions like how do you change cogs and lockrings and so on. I'm...
Oh, I see how it works now. Thanks.
Haven't seen one of these before. Strange thing.
And another one.
So it's some oldschool thing or what?
What's this thing on the rails? Can I take it off? Can I use the saddle with a normal seat post? I'm planning to buy this, I only have this picture, so I can't try to see how it works....
Grips + new pedals + bottle cage. Also changed gearing for 48/17, still too low, will put a 16 cog next week.
I don't want to mess up the frame.
BTW, it's more aerodynamical this way. :)
Oh I'm glad that you're so happy to see me. lol.
I just rode 80 miles on my Schwinn (48/17). And I try to ride 50 miles a day. I need to do this on my keirin bike really.
Well, any more...
I need a clincher wheelset for training on the road on my keirin bike. The bike is NOT used for commuting, so I need strong and reliable wheels, so no deep-vs or formula hubs or whatever. But no need...
Well, yes, different colors would be interesting, but it may be too expensive/too much hassle to recover the saddle.
I'm in Tokyo.
Hmm, that's interesting for me as well. I live in Japan as well and have 2 worn Fivegold saddles.
But, maybe it will be easier to just buy a new one? They're not expensive.
Got cleats today.
Actually the keirin guys recommended me to buy...
