Plasma is cheap, sperm requires a college degree, body is illegal. go with god.
WTF. How am I supposed to get a college degree for my sperm? There's thousands of them--I'll be paying back loans for ever.
I ment frame wise, is there anything you would want different? Alternatly, say you make your kilo your campus bike what would you want different for your trekking bike?
Should I buy a Catlike Whisper Plus?
I'm satisfied with my Lazer O2.
CWP is a cool looking helmet, though. Kinda looks like maggot holes. I'd get one if I had cash/found a deal.
Soo it turns out my Kilo Pro is probably ~1 size too big for me (thanks to my body type being the short arms / long legs variety).
I've replaced the wheelset, bars, stem, and pedal arrangement since I bought it.
Should I buy a smaller Kilo frame (Bike Island probably) and sell mine, or should I go for a different frameset (with a shorter top tube) all together? I don't know what slacker geo would be like..
i own the whisper myself, and i will say it's not spectacular by a long shot - though ventilation is great, weight is somewhat low (i have the 260g european version) and it came in a nifty case. sizing is a bit weird, my head usually measures ~56cm but the medium (54-58) fits only tightened all the way (retention systems pretty good, too). however, if i had to do it again, i wouldn't have paid 200 for mine. retails like, 280 so i'd definitely pass.
the ionos on the other hand weighs a bit more @~340g though ventilation (and comfort) is phenomenal. the newest rocloc system is simple and easy to use (similar to the specialized ones) and in general the helmets great. competitive cyclist was selling them for 120 a few days ago - which is a pretty damn good price. the prolight was 100, though i don't particularly like the rocloc SL system (or maybe i didnt have enough time to get used to it) - though i know a bunch of friends who love it. the straps are stretchy elastic to save weight.
take a look at the aeon too. ventilation (is supposedly) improved over the ionos but still keeping a weight close to the prolight at 230g i think. i havent seen one in person yet.
go to your lbs and try them out for yourself - and you can save the trouble of getting the wrong size!
All City New Sheriff to H Plus Son TB14 Prototypes (no badge/machined brake surface) for $150?
I have Nitto RB-021's on my bike but there's a set of Sakae Road Champion drops in my garage. Should I buy a roll of bar tape and wrap me up some drops for a change of pace or keep the Arby 21's on?
FWIW they both are already on their own quill stems so I won't have to ruin the tape job on my pursuit bars to switch.
I say do it, especially since you have nothing to lose except for the dough on bar tape. Drops and horns are among my most favorite handle bars due to the amount of hand positioning they afford. And nothing beats experimenting with different bars.
...which leads me to a second scenario.
I like the looks of drops with just the lower part wrapped but i don't know if i'll be kicking myself for doing it that way later.
Should I fully wrap them or just the tips? Just for a little bit. Just to see how it feels.
Should I buy some low flange Novatec track hubs and lace up some wheels?
