What Else Did You Just Buy For Your Bike? Thread Thread Thread..... Thread

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

When I get the bike back soon, Rosa will look similar to the last attachment except that the tank decal will be red over white and no fenders at the moment.

Haven't decided yet. Would prefer 1x for cross racing but would really like more range at each end for road and gravel. Hoping to replace my gravel bike and one of my road bikes with this.

The builder can do really slick fully sealed internal routing, but has no provisions for covering the openings when a cable is not in use.

I cannot wait to see it all built up. I love a good filet braze and anything 3DV (or some form of purple) especially that of Paul Price and his Components (a good band name by the way)
I'm super stoked, to say the least. Should be done in July.

Thinking about Dodge "Plum Crazy" paint. The paint work is done by an auto paint specialist.

That won't look to shabby though being able to see that gawjus brazing would be tops.

You could do di2 and only have the fd cable exit hole to worry about then

Ritchey WCS Evo Curve bars. LBS is ordering them for me and should be in Friday - love that LBS discount. Really want to do drops on the fixed gear but is proving tough since I don't have levers at all so finding the right bar has been tough.

I got a whole bunch of things for my current favorite bike.

New drivetrain (crank, chain, and cog)

New tires

New handlebar

Newish stem (I've had it laying around, but put it on this bike for the first time)

New brake lever

And even a new water bottle cage

Now I'm super excited to go for a ride and try out all this nifty stuff.

Maybe you're like me and you like the bar but hate the Ritchey billboard painted on it?

If so, I found it is easily dissolved with a little brake parts cleaner. The base finish underneath goes unharmed; it is not paint, but anodizing over a shot peened surface. Before spraying the solvent, I put masking tape over the alignment marks in the center, because I like them.

This was on a riser bar I got last week that I assume is made the same as your drop bar.

Honestly the graphics for me, on the bike that it is on, are absolutely fine. I don't think there is a part of my bike that doesn't have a dang logo on it so this pretty much matches it perfectly. The finish of these bars is really hard to describe, but it is like a smooth matte finish that makes you think that it might be carbon at first glance but you quickly realize that it isn't.

Swung by the local Performance shop today to check out these LG LA84 shoes. Tried 'em on and they fit pretty decently, and they were also marked down to $59.99. *swish*

This light gets dimmer as the battery discharges.

It seems to lack circuitry which keeps the light at a constant brightness until the battery is near discharged. That explains the low price.

Would be an amazing light but for this one drawback.

Gettin' Lit:





Also if anyone has any WTB ChrisCross rims in 32h get in touch. I might end up going HED Belgium because they are out of stock of the WTB and not making them anymore because rim brakes are for dullards and fools (not even remotely an indirect quote). Really the HED seems to have the same profile and similar look to the WTB but just a little wider internally I believe.

Do you have any other gear from them?

I'm looking at some of their jerseys but would like feedback before I order.

How do you like that bag? The blue/black one would match my ride.

I have wondered about them as well. I've had the golden vest saved in my bookmarks for a while now.

The gold is nice. Definitely different. I like things that are different and am really staring to loathe the sponsor logo race jersey look. I've found...

Ornot
Isadore
Morvelo
Search & State
Black Sheep
Twin Six

Danny Shane wouldn't be bad except that I don't want to ride around with the words "Danny Shane" on my kits.

There are others but they are not my style or are just plain silly.

Love the seat bag, but it's the only gear I have from them so far.

It seems to be made really well and looks as good as the photos. It moves around a little while riding, but not enough to bug me.

Customer service is good too. I accidentally ordered the black one, emailed that I wanted the plum instead and they hooked me up with the only one they had left in their office since they were sold out online.

I just bought the blue/black bag. From what I read they are made by a third party and resold by Ornot.
