What should i have for breakfast?
Flatwound for bass, or regular steel?
Birthday celebration...what should I do?
Should I buy the FTP from Nashbar? I live in the downtown core and the bike would never see a track most likely.
P.S. I am 6 feet tall. Should I purchase 58cm or 60cm?

- Seat post: Now a seat mast that once you cut it, it won't grow back if you need it to.
- Seat post clamp: The one-bolt system that may tilt the saddle nose down if you hit a bump (depending on rider weight)
- Seat post collar: This doesn't exist on a normal bike. However this slips down for many people when they hit a bump.
All of those "cool" changes were made in an effort to make the bike more aero. You probably don't care about being ever-so-slightly more aero...so why deal with the issues that arise from it?
Get a bike that uses a normal seatpost system and save yourself some headache.
Suggesting a frame for you sort of blindly would do you a disservice. When I got my Tiemeyer it took me at least a month of research to settle on that bike.
^ great post, thanks for the advice. Leaves me a lot to chew on!
I had flatwounds on my fretless and they were cool. I could imagine them being weird on my fretted. I like rounds.
Are you still in Baltimore, and have you ridden up Federal Hill? That was interesting just to walk up in my time there.
Flatwounds. On everything. Everytime. Even on my Les Paul...
While trying to refill my blinker fluid, I dumped a bunch of propwash all over the bumper bearings.
Do you have a resolution for this?
- Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.
