really , schauff not even written on the frame. whatever, schauff´s bikes are mostly from 500-3000. Nothing special . If you are looking for a new cheap bike, offer him way much less, about 100 max.

I'm moving to Washington, DC in a few weeks and want to get a cheap road bike to get around since I sold my car.

Suntour shifters
Sugino Crankset

Shimano Z Series Brake Set with great pad life (Br-Z64)

Yes. $120 for a Shogun in your size is already good in D.C. Markups there for used bikes are absolutely insane.

Suntour and Sugino? Awww yisss.

>this type of thing probably comes up alot but I didnt see it in the catalog

I commute about 10 miles each way to college on my bike. I am thinking the ride will be more comfortable if I get a cargo rack to go over the back tire for my backpack. The backpack can be a little heavy at times, 20lbs maybe more. Would it be hard to secure it? Is there a better way to do this? $100 price range.

Back rack with a basket?

Would a net to hold it without the basket?

I dont think I want to go with panniers. Wouldnt it be weird if the weight wasn't evenly distributed?

Use an octopus strap plus net then. I use a 1m octopus and attach it to the bottom hooks on the rear rack when carrying a case of beer.

Im in a predicament /n/.

I have a chance to trade one of my road bikes for a Gan Well Pro frame from my LBS. The Gan Well is worth more than my bike but its been sitting because the owner of the shop ordered it when there was a fixie boom in 06-07. Should I trade in hopes of getting the frame and then selling it to some city asshole for 1,100?

Naive city hipsters drawn to Kerrin racing like it supreme steel, or weekend warriors that buy expensive bike gear bc they can. He said himself he'd take as little as 500 for it to free up space. He sells far more mtbs and road bikes than track stuff

And why wouldn't he just sell it to a naive city hipster? Are you out in the boonies or something?

More room inside the trains is great, but if they could actually get the spacing between trains to be at the officially published intervals instead of bunching up and then long gaps, crowding wouldn't be such a big deal

So I'm thinking about buying a steel frame with a 1" steerer standard size tubing, and I'm a bit torn on weather to buy the threaded one or the threadless one.

Threadless -
Pros: Stiffer, lighter, more stem options, more bar options, lower stack
Cons: Oversize stems and bars might look weird and cutting the steerer

Threaded -
Pros: It matches better, and you don't have to cut the matching fork
Cons: It's clunkier and worse in every performance metric

If I go threaded, the bar is going to be higher than I normally ride,...

I would go quill with 1" - threadless with 1 1/8"

> if 1" threadless you'll have to use a shim
> or get a 26.0 clamping 1" threadless stem on ebay (limited choices) (and limited bar selection)

The real question is why are you even buying a new frame in 1" if you think you want threadless

Also, is quill really worse? If you know your fit, you won't have to fuck around with trying out different stems, building will be okay.

And if you're not racing...

>>931184
Because the frame looks so good. Yes quill is worse. It's not as stiff, it's heavier, the stack height is higher, and the headsets need more maintenance. Stem is not where you want flex.
>>
Lugged frames should have quill stems
I don't know why you're so worried about some minor performance difference on a random steel frame.
