If you aren't familiar with Sheldon's gear calculator, that's a good thing to look at as well. You'd be calculating for Gear Inches. Apologies if I'm repeating information you already know....

Use the gears on your current bike to figure out a good ratio for your new SS. Welcome to SS riding :)

Left front pant pocket with my keys :) I wear jeans or jean shorts 99.999% of my life, on and off the bike. I leave the wearing of lycra skin suits to you all . . .

Also, I wear men's Levi's 511s...

Moisture You can use your gears in the meanwhile to figure out a ratio that works for you. I don't know if you mentioned if you're running a 1x, 2x, or 3x chainring setup in the front but pick a...

Fair enough.



That was the only bike the shop had available to test fit in my size (44-46cm). I'm certainly not limiting it to just a Trek. It's just what I've been able to test thus far. When...

Mom is definitely not paying for any bike related parts if it isn't her bike. Although, after she said "you're crazy" she did follow with "hey, at least it's not drugs." I'll take that as a half...

Nothing broken with the disc brakes, I just hate the noise they make when wet. Great for snow, less so for my ears (and everybody within a 2 block radius).



I have drops on my current daily, I...

That's the tire my LBS recommended when given the tire constraints, hence that's why I mentioned it. In my other research, I've also looked at the Surly Knard which seems to fit your evenly spaced...

Pardon the poor pictures, the tarp is a PITA to fully take on and off. Iím usually only pulling a bike or two out at a time.

I can fit six bikes, 3 on each side pretty easily. Itís basically 1ft...

Nice. I wish I could put wider 35+ tires on my 650c frame. Would love it if their urban cross bike came in 42cm but they said it's a no go because of supply and demand. Which is understandable,...

Hmm, I'll definitely take a look at that. I keep my bike in my room and I'm tired of waking up every morning to a dog covered in grease stripes lol. We call him "grease monkey" because of it . . .

My current ratio of 46/17 puts me at 66 GI, going to a 16t would give me 70 GI. I'm sure lots of people say 66 GI is low for flat NYC (which it can be), but it's low enough to get up bridges and big...

NBD Wabi Classic

I got a new bike! It's a Wabi Classic 42cm (because I'm short). It's currently set up on the freewheel; I've got too many messed up body parts to be able to comfortably ride a fixed gear.

So far,...
