What's this guy's deal? I remember some video about replacing and adjusting brifters was pretty detailed and informative, but his review of some bar bag I was eyeing felt more like an advertisement than a genuine test. Close ups of a brand new item with him going on about all the amazing features it has. Is he legit or a corporate plant?
I'm thinking of buying an 80–90s road bike frame and kitting it up with modern components as a summer project.
I'm thinking Campagnolo components for the more classic look and to make a change from my low-end Shimano bike (I'm not totally set on this, but they have to be silver). I seem to remember reading that almost all prebuilt wheels come with Shimano/SRAM-compatible hubs and won't work with a Campag cassette. Is that true? And if so, can I put another brand of cassette on and have everything else Campag?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>967912 Are you talking about vintage Campy parts, as in friction downtube shifters, or modern Campy shifters? If the former, friction shifters don't care what cassette/hub you have, they'll work fine with any 10sp cassette (but be finicky, because the distance between cogs on a 10sp cassette is very, very small.
If it's the latter, there are three options to mix Campy indexing with Shimano/SRAM hubs (actually lots of wheels are available with Campy freehubs as an option) - you can run a Shimano derailer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The cassette body is different for campy groups so you can't just switch over to shimano with out at the very least rebuilding your rear wheel hub, beyond that I'm not sure. I do prefer the way Campy shifts in terms of the 2 levers. I've also been told that Campy does some pre-stretching of their chains as part of the manufacturing that shimano doesn't?
So, it's not that campy is bad or anything but market share really brings a lot of nice value to the table and that's where shimano shines. Shimano also happens to be very good too.
Currently I have campy veloce on my bike. My next bike will be 105.
>>968079 Pretty impressive, really. That they were able to feed so many people so efficiently with those bad boys. It's such a shame that the constant allied bombings of supplies caused many of the prisoners to starve to death.
I'm pretty new to all the biking world and at the age of 22, I've decided to buy my first road bike. I will use it for work/school because I want to save money and at the same time have a killer cardio.
I was thinking into buying a used bike like an all aluminum Argon 18 but after spending some time at a bike shop, guys suggested buying a new one because it comes with a lifetime warranty, 15% off everything in store and fitting is also included (which would normally cost 100$). I also have a hard time choosing between a road bike or a cyclocross one. I will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>967661 Yes in Montreal. I can bring it inside my gym, school and work without a problem. Is bike theft that much of a deal? I mean, if you let it in broad daylight, nobody will try to steal it right?
You'll need a new headset with a smaller cup. That one is unusually large, I think.
It's kind've a pain to remove and install that particular bearing surface, especially without the appropriate tools. If you have a really kickass bike shop in the area, now is the time to make their acquaintance.
I just installed this thing. I do it ghetto style because poorfag. It has sealed bearings, perhaps that's why it's so large. Aw... shit. You sure I can't spacer this somehow? Getting the headset out is no problem. Installing crown race/headset is hell though.
How many North American transit systems were built in the immediate post-WWII (1945-1965) era?
This is my favorite era of aesthetic design, yet it seems that this era was also the peak of car-cuckoldry, so that by the time we actually started building mass transit again, ugly post-1960s aesthetics had taken over.
tl;dr - Post mid-century modern train/transit designs, either real or concepts

Newcomer to /n/, I think this is the right place for boating, but I didn't see any sailing shit in the catalog.
Basically I'm about to buy a sailboat for living purposes, not racing or competition but I literally have no idea what I'm doing as far as maintenance or even taking her out. It's a small 32 footer like pic related with a tiny cabin that's just large enough for my needs, I'll post pics of the one I want as long as this thread belongs here.
Do any of you /n/iggers know anything about sailing or yachts? I'll delete this... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
aluminum has a limit. eventually, all aluminum bikes will break. probably not in your lifetime
steel and carbon theoretically have no fatigue life. you can flex them over and over, and so long as it is within a certain range of safety, it will never break. you could set up a machine to lightly flex one for centuries and it shouldn't break.
aluminum, eventually it will snap
I ride aluminum frames anyways, so you can see how much I care about this fact
>>965409 >steel and carbon theoretically have no fatigue life. you can flex them over and over, and so long as it is within a certain range of safety, it will never break. you could set up a machine to lightly flex one for centuries and it shouldn't break. Maybe if you're putting out 50 watts on glass smooth pavement.
This looks like it could actually be a lot of fun. I just moved to Denver and have never lived in a city before. Is this actually viable? Any pitfalls ? Anyone have tips for doing this effectively? Is there an app ?
>>965062 I've done it once or twice. they have it here in Atlanta, but usually it's just easier to ride anywhere that I'd take a bus since they're so slow and infrequent. They also allow us to take bikes on trains here, though, which are fast and go far, so I've done that a lot.
the bike rack thing on the bus is really well designed. really self-explanatory and stable, I was impressed.
