Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks! It's definitely a work in progress.

I think my Fuji might make it, at least in the budget thread, but you've posted a subaru in what is supposed to be a ferrari thread. Or something like that.

K,

I'll take judging a mountain bike over the off-topic blah-blah-blah anyday!
I'm just happy someone posted a bicycle today! It brings the thread back to bike-talk.

Posting your work email on a forum is not smart. But then, neither is posting a Yeti in a road thread.

That Spooky is missing parts, so not hot.

The Specialized has shocks and nothing even resembling a big ring, so not hot.

If you don't like my platform pedals or how I took the picture, you can bite me.

Such a beautiful day in Brooklyn today mid 50's sunny crisp....



Leather seat experiment over. I like my old selle san marco caymano just fine.



25c Conti 4000s w/ reflective strips. Actual measurement of the 25c is 27mm. They look pretty trippy/cool at night - two rolling rings of white.

Ooh, that yellow bike is HOT!

So is the silver one that coasting posted. HOT.

That Spooky frame with the big Walmart welds is NOT.

Beautiful Bridgestone. Nice execution on the stem conversion.

Really? That is the one thing I don't like about that bike. If it were mine I would put a modern threadless fork, carbon perhaps. Not only would it be much lighter, but it would get the stack height lower for a better more aero bar height. I think a -17deg stem would look better as well with the flat top tube.

if it was a bridgestone rb1 from any other year than the 1993-1994 series then I'd actually go "full weight weenie" on this build. but the 93/94 RB-1's had the unique double crown forks that they are known for.

I do have the urge to at least try out painting/matching a 1" carbon fork (maybe a a easton EC90) that would drop almost 2lbs off... but then I might as well buy a another bike and work from there (hint.. I'm thinking of doing just that with a colnago master x-light).

Why would you take off the stock RB-1 fork? It's a beautifully made fork with a ritchey crown. The bike rides and handles better than pretty much everything out there as it is, and you'd ruin it with a carbon fork...
