Went looking for the 'Ask Scrod' thread to ask this question and noticed it was closed back in July...
But anyway I was looking to replace my drivetrain (just the Kilo TT's stock cog, chainring, and chain) this coming Spring and was thinking about the following:
- All-City standard track cog - 17t - $20.00
- SRAM S-series Courier alloy ring, 130BCD x 48t (3/32") blk - $43.46
- KMC Z410 chain (1/8") - KMC Z410 chain - black - $8.00
Does anyone have any additional 130BCD chainring recommendations? I found a Sugino chainring as well as the Sugino Messenger, but I'd rather not pay more than $50 for the chainring. Thanks a bunch!
used road rings from ebay should be a lot cheaper than $50
also that chain should cost you no more than $10, its 8 @ RG
ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.
should i go with some red tires?
can i get away with just the rear?
I wouldnt do red tires, red accent or two, maybe tape? the black tires look good.
Should i black andel fluted cranks or factor fives f5 lattice crankset in black?
im leaning towards the f5's because they look so close to my shimano 600ex cranks...and that chainring!
If you look on my pedal room, you can see im running silver cranks and they look out of place i think.

I'd also go with a 1/8th chainring if you can since I've found that 3/32 are a little more prone to be noisy.
i feel like another splash of colour, to tie the bike together. i had red zafiro's on my last bike, on white wheels, and i liked it a lot.
i'm not a big fan of grayscale bikes n' things
Which Nitto Bar should I buy for use on a track bike (for actual track cycling);
price new for these are fairly close to each other so it is negligible.
should I... build up a steel CX/all rounder a la a Rychtarski? We have a lot of trails and a cx scene that my current stable would have a difficult time tackling.
For a while i thought about parting out my caad10... but then i remembered n+1..
seems like a nice frame at a decent price, for a custom at least... i am not opposed to comparable suggestions

You could buy a frame, move your parts from the CAAD10 over for a few months then make the call on building something up. OR Another option would be to go the all-rounder route and move the parts from your CAAD10 to a CX frame with a lower BB. You'll gain 1-2lbs but you wouldn't need another bike (want, maybe, but not need).
I've got two sweet frames but room for only one in the stable. Should I sell the Klein Q-Carbon or the Felt F1X?
My other two bikes are commuters: a Raleigh RX1.0 / Cannondale Capo. The Klein would go to a friend of mine who has been eyeing it since day one, the Felt would go on CL. In either case I wouldn't be losing any money.
I'm an angry angst ridden anarcho-punk socialist you should just generally disregard my posts--Germany_chris
In this case they're both vying for the same slot: road bike. The Klein is the latest in a string of frames that I've had those parts on. Over the summer a complete Raleigh RX1.0 fell into my lap and I found that I really enjoyed taking on what limited rough terrain the NY area has to offer (Highbridge Park, Old Croton Aqueduct). This is what put the idea of a "do-everything" road bike in my head.
I'm down to one bike. Need a commuter, maybe a trail bike too.
Budget ~400, but you all know me.
