You can get a custom titanium bike with full di2 and custom deep aerogarbon wheels with gokiso hubs for under $300 if your not a retardo like most of this consumer sheeple board. I myself commissioned a design from the Vatican, welded by the pope and with a seatpost made of fragments of the True Cross, for $299. If you disagree with me you don't know SHIT about bicycles and probably ride a BSO with DUI bars and it's a fixie to.
>Takara Kabuto It's not a very good bike, and the large size will be just barely big enough for someone of your height, but it will work tolerably well for a commuting bike if you live somewhere flat. If you do buy this, it would be worth having a bike shop do a basic tuneup (to make sure there's adequate grease in place, wheels are tensioned, bolts tight, etc.) on it before you ride it very far - half the problem with most cheap bikes is that they're not put together properly, greatly increasing the chances that you'll experience...

>>909929 1. Go to bike shop, get a lower-priced hybrid or road bike that can take racks. For USA, figure this will cost ~$400. It will be built and assembled much better tho.
2. get Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires for it. This will cost ~$100 more (you may need to order them online) but it makes getting flat tires far more unlikely 2a. If you get a bike that has 26".559mm wheels then there is a china copy of the Schwalbe MP that is cheaper, called the Salvo ($20 on Amazon) but it only comes in 26" x 1.75. It... Comment too long.

So, one of my rear tyres popped yesterday. Before I get ripped off, I was wondering if you guys can help. I'm no petrol head but plan to change this to at least some extent. Anyways, can I change just one tyre, should I get both rear ones done, or is it far better to get all four done?
They are amazing if you get the angle, height and setback exactly right. The short rails don't provide much adjustment range, so you might need a new seatpost to get it in the right spot. Then they start sagging and the sides flare out, which messes everything up. So you have to lace them, which most people don't.
Many people sit far too forward on them, particularly when they start sagging. If I were to buy another Brooks I'd go with one of the "Select" models which use extra thick leather.
>>905859 I have a B17, a Pro, and a Swallow and they're all great, not memes at all.
>>905860 I wish the rails were a bit longer, too. I have one of my seatposts in backwards because of this. Not worried about seatpost failure because it's an old Sakae that's so overbuilt it could be used as a mace in case I ever need to stave in the heads of invading Saracens. When they start sagging, turn the adjustment bolt a bit. Lacing them is a good idea if the bolt... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'd like Santa to bring me a set of 10-sp Campy shifters, a pair of lobster gloves to replace the ones I can't find, a bottle of nice bourbon, and a couple pounds of good single-estate Assam tea. Will I get (or even ask for) any of this? Nope.
More realistically, I will be very happy if my family members bring better deserts to contribute to the annual Christmas dinner I host than they did to this past Thanksgiving.
what does /n/ think of the slate? http://www.cannondale.com/en/Canada/Bike/ProductDetail?Id=70774e94-f9c2-4943-81da-0dc02b353c15&parentid=19002b84-986d-491c-b12b-04b847147d2a Does it really offer anything over CX bikes? Is it a niche too narrow to be worthwhile? Is it just a hamfisted attempt at making one bike do the job of two?
>"This new bike by Cannondale combines two worlds that usually have little to do with one another. It echoes elements of a mountain bike and interprets these for road use. As a result, it taps into a bigger target group of cyclists."
that was from their page, but at $4500 the people that can afford those prices also can afford to own multiple bikes built to their specific types of riding. Really even on a cx I rarely hit anything worth having any suspension, but it might be nice on the hands for rough gravel roads. I think they... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a quick question which I'm hoping /n/ might be able to help with, no one else seems to!
What would be the best way to launch a helicopter from a modern airship? I'm trying to get "realistic" or "believable" ideas, such as side ramps/hatches or possible a top section on the airship - I don't know how modern construction methods would work with this.
Basically, I'm writing a novel set in a slightly alternate now where airships and helicopters are the norm for reasons, and if you developed a helicopter carrier, how it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've had a Biopace Crankset on my first Steelbike, and the only thing i notice about it is that its pretty much Solid and Bulletproof, though i can't really notice any difference compared to my current Shimano 105 Crankset
I feel a bit of difference when climbing. It's a little like trying to lift during upstroke. I haven't done an A/B test between my Biopace bike and one of my other bikes, although even if I did it wouldn't be terribly accurate due to tire size and geometry differences.
