If you wear skinny jeans, a white plastic belt, and neon Wayfarer sunglass frames, people might not notice your tiny bike frame.
I have a 2008 Schwinn Madison and need a new seat post. If I remember correctly (can't find the thread right now), the correct seat post size is 27.0 mm. The previous owner installed a 27.2 mm post. It's a tight fit and the post is pretty scratched up. Can/should I go back to a 27.0 post? Seems like there should be enough flex in a steel frame/clamp for it to work.
Also, is there a thumb rule (like X times seatpost diameter) to follow for minimum insertion depth if it isn't marked?
The previous owner of the 2008 Maddy I had crammed a 27.2 post in there as well. Removing it was hellish. I'd go back to a 27.0 if you can.
If a seatpost isn't marked, the general rule I stick by is to make sure the bottom of the post is at least an inch below the bottom of the top tube.
Vtrack straps + MKS Sylvans from RG for a 2010 Fuji Track Comp? Yea or nay?
I need to get pedals for it and there are just way too many options.
For an inexpensive commuter; Moto Track or Windsor Hour.
In general, what is the cost of getting a wheel trued?
I have to get my rear done, and don't want to be overcharged.
Dear Mr. Scrod,
I am shopping around for a new saddle. I would go with the Selle Italia Turbo, but since it rains on/off here and my bike may subjected to it from time to time, I'd like to avoid leather (for now). Because of this, one of my choices is the Leader Cosmic saddle, which I noticed is stocked on your site. Since there aren't very many reviews on the interwebs for it, I was wondering if I may possibly get your opinion on it (comfort, etc).
I'm assuming since it's vegan, it's made of synthetic material that'd hold up well in the rain, correct?

It looks like a turbo but is a lot cheaper. Mine's been in the rain a lot and it's still doing okay, and even if it does get ruined it didn't cost much. Also I'm finding mine to be really really comfy
you want to examine his ass?
