Hello, /n/

I've had this recurring desire to get out and do some mountain biking, trail riding. I don't have a bike, I'm going to borrow my dad's box-store Schwinn mtnbike that's probably too small for me and doesn't fit quite right. It was recently tuned up at a local bike shop. My questions are these:

I need a helmet. I'm inclined to buy some $25 deal from Amazon and call it good. What criterion do you look for when spending big money on helmets?

I'd like to get a mountain bike. I'm 6'4" and understand...

Big money doesn't get you better protection, unless we're talking about full face downhill helmets. It gets you better ventilation, padding, weight, and aero, and fit options. As long as it's ANSI or snell certified, and not a cosplay toy.

Find something that fits. Better fit means better protection.

>If I set about a $300 budget what should I look for on Craigslist? Something with a frame I can upgrade?

Take a look at what a 300-500 entry level new mountain bike gets you for reference.

I'd go with...

big money does give you better protection in the form of more coverage. But when I say big money I mean like 100€ range, pic related.

Basic POC Trabec, not the funky race MIPS version. It covers really well especially the back of your head, it's pretty damn big but at the same time comfortable and light - I don't feel it sitting on my head.

The only gripes I have with it is that there's nowhere to put sunglasses on and the visor feels really fucking cheap - but that's because it's supposed to come off in case of strong hits, so it doesn't twist your neck. If you want to go a little cheaper, I've heard good things of the IXS Trail RS and Bell Stoker. But the Trabec is the meatiest of the bunch.
I thought the whole point of MIPS is better protection. And MIPS helmets generally cost a little more.

Is this bike worth $500?

> Medium frame, full suspension 29er, Salsa Spearfish. Rock Shox Reba front, Rock Shox Monarch in the back. SRAM X9, Elixr 3 hydraulic brakes.Crank Brothers seat, seat post, bars & stem.

12 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

Easily worth $1000 unless the frame is damaged or the suspension needs rebuilding.

That's a great bike.
Elixir 3's are a bit jank but they'll get the job done.
REBA is an extremely nice fork.
Monarch is a workmanlike rear shock.

I would jump on that, personally. The geometry is very, very XC-ish so keep that in mind. It won't be a downhill beast.
I have no clue what to look for when shopping for a mountain bike. Any tips or suggestions for bikes you guys own? I'm planning on going to a bike store near me tomorrow, but I'm afraid he'll just try and sell me on their most expensive model since I'm a noob.


Thanks! I'll probably meet that guy and check out the bike.

Pretty much guarantee you it's some older model Boeing or Airbus commercial jet that's still in service. My guess would be a very old 747.
Sounds about right. Kalitta Air still has a couple 747-200Fs

I want to get my rotary commercial one day but fixed wing is where more opportunity lies.

Pipe dreams are neat tho
At the moment. Two years ago the opposite was true.

Once the heli industry breaks out of its current slump and the fixed wing side is over saturated with low time pilots that it gobbled up in the panic, it will be reversed again.

But being dual rated is always a good idea. And fun.
Is anyone else super hyped for Oshkosh? Going to do a ton of flying over a few weeks, seeing lots of friends and family along the way!

2 MB,

I bought this bike a month or two ago, $300 canadian mostly ultegra 6600 parts. It has some carbon integrated into the frame but none of that seems to be damaged in anyway. Was stupid and didn't pay enough attention to notice any of the dents when I first got it.

I'm guessing the one with the nickle in the picture is from a crash and the one on the underside of the downtube is from a bike rack.

RIP frame

Tubing is strong because it is consistent shape in modern AL frames. The dent in OP would be enough for me to scrap the frame. I saw 3 more serious dents in the imgur link.
so the frame is fucked?

Not sure what you mean by seeing 3 more serious dents. There's a shadow that makes it look like there's another one in my op pic.
Meh, not that bad.

The location in which the dents are located are not enough to compromise the frame desu.

Doing a bike tour from NYC->Canada next month, trying to buy an old bike on craigslist and tune it up in time. Choices right now are between a Trek 500 for $180 (pictured). cheap and 18 speed is nice but no rack mounts.

Alternative is this old af Raleigh for $350. 14 speed (enough for the tail i reckon) and includes racks, less work in general. Picture in next reply

Here's the Raleigh.

Also my friend offered me free gatorskins but I'm not sure what size they are yet.
>Plus it's cheaper
No, it's not cheaper if you want to get it to mechanically like new condition, completely ignoring cosmetics. Especially not at $350 for that piece of shit.
You think?

$700 seems like a bargain for sure, so I'm inclined to believe you, but are you sure the Raleigh would cost $400 to get into working condition? Not that their performance would be comparable obviously.
