I love this bike, the pursuit bars make me feel comfortable while riding for fun but still enables me to grab at its ends and get into a more aggressive position for going faster, or climbing hills with a more upstanding position

Sorry, man, I bought only the frame without any of the original components on Ebay. Wasn't feeling like restoring it to factory spec - too time and money consuming. However, I would never repaint it or flex off the shifter bosses or something like that. I'm well aware of the fact that it's a classic. So someday it might receive the drivetrain it deserves...

Scratches are not a problem: its the raw aluminium tubing. All scratches just polish out by rubbing it with soapy steel wool pads. I had some nasty ones from parking it at busy city bike rack. The downside is oxidation caused by rain or condensation storing it outside Got a give it a good rub once a month or the finish will turn to shit. Only takes me 15 minutes while i wax my chain.

Also, are license plates on bicycles in Japan obligatory?
>>
>>1259102
There is a bicycle registration system in Japan but it's a suble thing -- the sticker can be on the bottom bracket or the underside of the down tube. I believe that there was a registration plate requirement many years ago but that's history.
>>
>>1259104
Is the registration still obligatory?
In my country you can get your bike registered by the police, they put a sticker, sign with UV marker and engrave their own number on it, and if it ever gets stolen and they find it, it will be easier for them to find it's owner. Though it doesn't scare thieves away and looks ugly (since the sticker needs to be on top tube), so not everybody is doing that.
>>
>>1259120
It's "obligatory".The registration sticker should be visible and underside of downtube / bottom bracket is visible enough.

I got divorced almost 5 years ago, and was nomadic for the first year. The last almost 4 I've been keeping it local to stay around my son (adopted when he was 2, bio father abandoned).

I was originally supposed to leave, but ex realized how badly and often I was needed and asked me to stay near, which I am grateful for, because I love my son very much.

I mean it's pockmarked as fuck, you've got cagers going by at 60mph, and it ends at coogan's bluff and you have to navigate angry drug dealers in suspiciously expensive cars until you reach central park. or you can I guess take 2nd avenue down through the hellscape that is the UN zone and the midtown tunnel shitfest and get pounced on by angry cops from Staten Island

vs. the west side greenway where you're in forest all the way down to harlem, and then you're decently separated from the roadway other than a few hundred meters. no lights, and no cager conflicts the whole way save for a brief gap above fairway, the heliport, the piers, and some crossings down near the WTC

>>
>>1260969
I don't understand your question.
why do you think that 2x2 makes any kind of sense?
>>
>>1260972
In my head why I have found it sensible stems from riding single speed/ fixed. I loved having a next to no maintenance drivetrain being single speed. Hated having a full range of gears. Wanted something that held those attributes of single/ fixed. With that thought process I wound up putting a triple crankset on singlespeed frame. required rd for chain tension. I rode that frame into the ground. Later found out about the "dingle". Which I then pretty much built that bike around it. Mainly because I didnt want internal gear nonsense. Again going for less maintenance overall. That one aspect is a major factor in why I believe it to more sensable.
>>
>>1260987
Why not just go for a gear hub?

>>1260987

i just got here and i ran 2x1 on a white miyata i turned into a single speed commuter in 2012 before i got the dropout length and chain tension correct.

I just did 2x1 on a whim and it was objectively shit. You still have all that shifter and cables and derailer ruining the aesthetic plus weight for just 2 gears that are very similar and have a narrow spacing between them. Doesn't fucking help with hills at all and the shifting is long and clunky you dont feel like doing it often. I cant find a picture but i just ran my 52t after a week but yeah i can honestly say that soma is begging for IGH. Make it a priority soma bro

> Brake is only accessible from the tops, which is the only part of the bar that you can reach because the fit of the bike is so fucking aggressive
> Bar tape is folded over on itself and is sticking out from under the endcap
> Rear wheel not rideable in any crosswinds

Is this bait? Please tell me the rear hub is 130mm spacing and you didn't just crush the rear triangle in to fit a track hub. Honestly, I'm impressed it even has a brake at all. FIXIE LiFE!
>>
>>1261329
And I was being modest
>>
>>1261018
Good stuff. I really like that metallic gloss that trek did in the late 90s
>>
>>1261323
Yes it's an 18t cog, 52t chainring. Was originally 11-speed. The chainline isn't totally straight, (which is admittedly the fault of using those road cranks) so I have more chain slack than usual.
>>1261329
Rear wheel is laced to an ENO Eccentric hub, so chain tension is adjustable via the eccentricity. I find the bike fit to be extremely comfortable because I'm 193cm and have good flexibility. For posterity, the frame is 60cm, so I would consider it slightly undersized. Yes, the hub is 130mm spacing; it's specifically designed for road-fixed conversions with vertical dropouts.

I have no excuses for the bartape. Frankly, I would never recommend Brooks Cambium bartape. The motherfucker is so hard it's impossible to fold it under the endcap.

Never change /n/.
>>
>>1261324

Just shove an angle grinder disk in the droppout and grind out a few millimetres back. Its all you need for the chain to tension up nicely. Its easy dont stress.
>>
>>1261366
>I find the bike fit to be extremely comfortable
I've found this to be the case for a lot of people who've never ridden a bike with a proper fit for comparison. You're doing to do some damage with that saddle angle, for real.

Not sure if you can or would want to swap to an actual fixie crank. suigino makes a nice crankset or some omniums. If your going to go that far.

The bike is basically currently set up as a torture device, because I live in an extremely hilly city. Pushing my 175mm cranks with 52/18 gearing up hills is quite fun, but spinning huge circles on the way down is better. I'm thinking Omniums eventually though.

Top parts are slight gravel but easy enough on 23 or 25mm slicks. Very prone to ice. And if you like mtb there are a couple of blue/red trails on other side. Best cycling up from the side that has the Brimmond Carvery.

Yeah I've had it off road quite a bit. I bought it about 7 years ago brand new. It never quite fit worked out for me due to sizing and gearing, however, in the last year or so I experimented with different stems and installed a wifli with a large cassette and it basically transformed it for me and its now my go to "I don't know where I'm going bike"

The brakes still kind of suck though :/

Another anon here, I've been experimenting with different brake pads for the cantilevers and finally with Tektro RX5 mini-v brakes for years now. Honestly though, there's no real improvement, at least not with 5600-series STIs... While the mini-v brakes might perform a tad better, they feel really weird and you can pull the lever all the way to the bar.
I'll be installing a flat bar, trigger shifters and hydraulic rim brakes soon, don't use the drops that much anyway.

My first thought was the same as the previous anon's, but on that frame specifically... it doesn't appeal to me at all. Bare finishes can be interesting if the frame underneath has interesting details and custom work to admire, but TIG-weld marks are just plain ugly and there's nothing special or unique about that frame. The decals on that bike aren't doing it any favors either.

I don't like the bare metal look either. It says like mad max, cyber punk, being called 'bombadier' with bombs on it, even 'wartime' or 'post apocalyptic'. I think above anon is right that the bare welds are ugly but I think that's the deliberate look, it's supposed to look 'hardcore'.

I think that aesthetic is at odds with the nature of a new steel road bike. They are expensive and comparatively non-functional. They are form over function. Which is honestly not even a bad thing with a bicycle, bicycles are aesthetic items. But that aesthetic says function over form. It is disingenuous.

Sell it away and get a real bicycle.

I have a bike, and it is boring $15 used one. No suspension meme, just 18 gears and v-brakes.
The problem is that it doesn't fit in train, scooter is just more practical. I can take it inside any walmart I want, so n*ggers wont steal it, it fits in the train. And it is self-propelled.
