so, i'm a jimmy delivery biker in chicago. posted before about cruising through the winter on 23 gators (legit try it it'll work)

Right now i'm in the process of building a budget dream bike. i want some drop bars with aero position, a smalller front wheel, a fork with disks, a good steel frame.

Anyway, i had to borrow a bike from my dad to use while i fix up my fixie and my bonnie traygar. Would using a mountain fork for a 26" in wheel with disks be possible to achieve that smaller front wheel approach?

BTW, i do delivery in west loop...

Well not sure if this is a joke but i'll give you answer anyway

The best approach would to purchase a 650c fork that would fit your frame both techincally and aesthetically, and purchase 650c front wheel.
Thank you, i assumed mountain parts would be cheaper

Do you think disks on front and rear is necessary? since rear is for slowing more anyways and not full breaking like front

Lot of guys at my store have disk front wheels

Breakfast is either oatmeal on ride days, or some sort of egg dish on gym / rest days

At 11 I have a shake with spinach kale and banana

At 1:30 I eat lunch, usually quinoa with beans or something like that

At 3:30 I have some sort of shake with wheatgrass protein powder and a bunch of veggies

At 5:30 I have dinner which varies a lot but I'm vegetarian so usually tofu or beans with barley or quinoa. At least 3 days a week I eat salmon or tuna steak

Ah, and I feel I should answer your other questions, I drink LOTS of water on a daily basis, and this is the same on rides. And on longer rides I carry some sort of energy bar and eat it part way through after a few hours (I prefer vector bars)

I don't spend that much money on food, the only notable expenses are my fish, and shake stuff. Other than that it's largely bulk stuff and vegis.

I would say cut down on the milk, eat less fruit, and more vegis. But other than that your diet doesn't seem all that bad.

Apparently this has the same weight as a typical steel bike:


But considering it is SS I wouldn't be surprised if they are stretching the truth and comparing it to a geared bike.

Still pretty cool.

Ihad my mountain bike stolen in denver at the end of summer. It was my own fault I guess cuz I just used a cable lock. I saw other people using them so I thought it was ok.
I know better now and have a u lock and a heavy duty chain.

I've got two major questions.

One, the chainstay (2nd from bottom pic) was getting really nicked up on my bike, and when I noticed I put a few layers of masking tape over it. Today, when I peeled it off to take a picture there wasn't any more damage but quite a bit has already been done. I would like to know why the chain might be hitting the chainstay and how to prevent it.

Two, in additon to the chainstay damage there's some old chips on other parts of the frame that have rotten rusty, and I have bought some supplies from various stores to fix...

That's pretty involved for a paint patch, I'd like to know how your plan works out, sounds like you're on the right track.

Personally, when I touch up dings I just dab on some nail polish or enamal model paint and call it good - not as thorough as what you're doing but it works, at least for bikes in a dry climate that get stored indoors.

For the decals - there's no way to fix or improve them, you either have to paint over them or peel them off completely.
Oops I neglected your first question: chain slap happens when your chain has slack in it and you ride over rough terrain. If your chain is too long or you're using an old derailer that doesn't take up slack effectively, those are problems you can solve, but sometimes on a bike with a triple crankset, wide range gearing, and longish chainstays, there's always going to be a lot of chain available to flop around and bash the stay, so your best option is to make sure you have a large-enough chainstay protector in place.

Looks like a Track Bike that was re-tasked as a street Fixie. It's got a front brake, and maybe that Big Bird thing on the handlebars has a horn.

I do get pissed when someone takes a historically significant road frame, e.g. an old curved stay Hetchins, and files off the derailleur hanger and brake cable guides to make a smooth fixie frame. In the case of this Bianchi, it doesn't look molested; there's nothing to prevent it from being restored to it's original self.

Just bought my first road bike for 400 aussie dollarydoos. Fuji Sportif with tiagra 10 speed.

Pretty happy with it desu.
I'll have to see if I can adjust it, and the bars too, I haven't had a chance to yet. Adelaide here
What happened to the frame? Lovely bike in any case, nice color scheme, pls trim the steerer
Tiagra is great for a first road bike. As the other anon said in the previous thread, your saddle seems tilted a bit too far back, may wanna level it with the ground. Same with the bars, in time when you get more flexible you'll be wanting a lower position.

Whats the big deal? Dont people know Shimano is better?
93 replies and 12 images submitted. Click here to view.
ShimaNO is evil.

First of all, to work on a ShimaNO bike requires different tools for cartridge bottom brackets, freewheels, and freehubs. The Campagnolo tool lets you do all three with the same tool.

ShimaNO created new standards, like changing the size of cable heads. ShimaNO shift cables won't fit classic downtube shifters, but Campagnolo ones will.

ShimaNO freehubs have short splines, so they have to be made from heavy steel or expensive titanium, or if they're aluminum they will notch.

Is it worth choosing a brand over another?
Stick to the "big names"(shimano,SRAM,Campagolo) or maybe go to 3rd party brands?(Sunrace,BBB,FSA etc.)

SRAM chains are particularly greasy, and require cleaning out of the box. This is because some of their low end chains aren't properly plated, and get surface rust very easily, which can lead to increased wear. Either rust dust or grime can increase wear, so I'd advise against the low end chains. Nothing wrong with higher end SRAM chains though and they come with a quick link.

You should never buy a Campy chain. By all means, they're excellent chains, some people are able to get extremely long lives...

Fuck LBS
what kinda shit lbs is that. I went to my lbs to test out a CAAD10, but it was one size too large for me. I asked if he could get a smaller one, he said yes and I can ride the larger size in the meantime, swapping it for the smaller one when it arrives.
I work at an LBS and still have to deal with this shit.
The only positive aspect I can say about the experience for most people is that an LBS will solve all your compatibility problems, so someone doesn't buy the wrong stem for the wrong bars or something like that.
then again, nonretards would be able to figure that out.

whoa, that's legendary service.

Ornithopter Flight - YouTube

It works, why not exploit the tech for personal travel? If ornithopters aren't advanced enough now, why not get it there?

°studies show that if done properly it can be more energy efficient then turbine.
°annoying flapping rocking motion can be countered through added alternating wings

°not very advanced currently
°not high altitude friendly (not completely sure on this one)

We all want to fly like a bird, I suggest replace the jet pack dream or a two/three winged back pack.

The thing about orinthopters is they're not able to fly above the sand storms. Then you have to put on your still suit and make sure you have enough thumpers to evade the worms.
Not trying to be rude but I really don't know what you said
I guess fly on a clear day? I wouldn't want to go in the air if it looked like it was going to be hell on earth anyway
