Sorry if you guys don't like it.

Would it be better if I put a carbon fork on it?
We all know about it. You keep posting about it. It's great that Vince from Slap Chop designed your bars and they can now melt boat anchors and sell them as cheap frames but you don't need to keep mentioning it at every turn. Maybe without the goofy floppy chop bars and if you had mentioned it once or twice, it would have been sensible but you have over done it.

The carbon fork would probably be worth more than the frame, so probably not other than for your personal comfort and as a way to lighten up the thing.

My old shop towards the end started to stock more XLC tubes and they failed most often and we probably warrantied at least a quarter of them. Though at that price one could buy a bunch and hopefully never need them.

Windsor Tourist $399 today. Legit sale compared to its actual regular price (not the fake MSRP): Save Up to 60% Off Touring Bikes | Commuting | Commuter Bikes | Windsor Bikes - Tourist
Says today only (6/9).

Edit: Definitely not a one-day sale. It's still going. They are likely clearing out inventory.

Just saw this good deal on Continental Grand Prix 4000s II tires while shopping at Universal Cycles:

https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...7&category=585

I bought four of them, two 700x23c and two 700x25c.

that's what I ride on my Wabi. Decent piece. Can't say I've ever noticed a difference in cranks but they sure look nice.

edit: Except FSA. The threads are weak on the non drive side arm (for many models) and it's a known QC problem. Screw FSA cranks!!!

TLDR; I need new 700c30 or 32 tires (new or gently used) for free/cheap/ or on sale can you help


full version: Hey all!* How have you been? I haven't been on BFSSFS in AGES! (for those from circa 2010/2011ish who may or may not remember me)

Anyways, long story short, life changing hip and back injury back in Feb 2011 kept me from using it so much, but alas I miss the ride and transportation and so I turned my rear wheel around on my Pak Rummrunner so that my freewheel is on drive side and I am now on a quest for comfort.* Starting with my tires for now, Wider, maybe a bit knobbier and comfier is what I now seek, but I am limited to a 700c with a maximum width of 30/32( if it doesn't have a fat lip thing on either side of the thread) maybe even a 33 is it isn't knobby.
However,:I am Poor as I still have not received my SSI income I have been awaiting since my injuries and subsequent mental health decline(bad ocd and anxiety got worse afterwards)*
Does anybody have any idea of good, inexpensive places these days to get tires online or if any good tire sales are going on?* I'm a cheap ass and would even consider used ones(if they aren't too worn down) that are cheap/free.

I got those same Durchee brakes on my Langster, excellent brakes even on the ScRAM TT levers. Can't recommend good pads enough though, with crappy pads they aren't as good but that is any brake really.

Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 - 23mm - $14.07
https://www.merlincycles.com/vittori...yre-47115.html

These are the older Pro III, not the newer G+, but still an amazing tire. I went through countless pairs of these at $35 each.

25's out of stock but still, a killer deal on a great tire.
