after 4 years i still LOVE the color

quick question, is the front rack worth the buy ?
>>
>>1282814
According to some a front load is more aero. But if you're thinking a basket with heavy stuff on top it might affect handling poorly
>>
>>1282814
Unless you need more space or already know you prefer front loading for some reason, stick with the rear racks. The bike will handle better with a typical "rear" load. You could potentially go to a front setup without being affected much by the load shift if you're only taking small loads at a time.
>>
>>1282814
Front racks are pretty good desu.Is that a carbon fork?

What a cool bike, your brakes are so rare on a modern bike, and what looks like a sunscreen bottle behind the saddle. I like the color. Super nice/10

Here is my new gravel bike (last weeks pic) and needs updated pic with much needed pedals, 4 bottle cages and bags, tools etc....too broke to buy atm. Need monies
>>
>>1282932
How do you find riding on rougher surfaces with such a narrow handlebar?
>>
>>1282932
That's a really good looking bike. Your photo i think doesn't do it justice. I love the colour scheme. Trek is killing it these days with their colours. I saw a purple ALR the other day damn those things are nice too. Also safety with bright colours
>>
>>1282943
not him but if you already ride a road bike it's just totally natural and really fun.
you can really go fast on gravel and kind of plane over it,

You have to be a bit more careful descending but if your brakes are good enough thats fun too
and losing the leverage for climbing can suck a bit, if you run out of gears and if you stand the rear might slip on a crossy bike but if you're strong and can spin up climbs and have low enough gears then it's great

I wouldn't head straight to a meme bike though, if you haven't ridden a road bike before, do that first.

Thanks, I was worried the bike was going to be too old but it's in such a good condition(aside from the tyres). I think the previous owner just rode it for a summer and left it inside.

>Such nice colours on the right
I was going to get new tyres and get both the front and rear in blue just to keep the white and blue theme. The faded red is a little weird.

They meant the plastic disk behind the cassette on the rear wheel. It's not needed so long as you take care of the drivetrain.

yeh,got me a new 700c rim and 23c tire (so both wheels are equal now) and crazy bike guy had one 27" fork lying around that fit just perfectly. Strangely, it has v-brake inserts for a 26" wheel while the single hole below the headtube seems to have been desgined for a 27" wheel, because of that i'm back at using that chinese long-reach crappy sidepull. I'm looking for a proper medium reach caliper around but i've been unable to find it locally so i might have to buy it online, not sure of what brand is best tho (my only experience is with Logan gear)

>>1283043

I have not ridden this bike yet. I rode pure road bikes on gravel before and it was manageable, but not comfortable. This bike can rock up to 42mm. So the long days will be smoother.

It's cool to run carbon on aluminum? Any extra precautions I need to take?
>>
>>1283310
It's very cool, it smooths out the ride.
The higher end version of my emonda has one. I noticed it's so much nicer on rough streets.

The only precaution is to use a bit of fiber grip paste and to not over torque your clamp.

I always use carbon grip paste to prevent slippage...it will scratch up your parts, it's a bit gritty
>>
>>1283310
>>1283259
White bar tape that looks dirty is sick though. Give it a free months or maybe rub some dusty dirt on them to cut the brightness. Assuming you bought proper cork tape

I agree with the carbon seatpost. Absolute easiest weight weenie move. But be advised that the cheapies are usually zero setback carbon seatposts and they are harsh as fuck. Setback is good imho
>>
>>1282960
>hey bruh has anybody made them new trek sliders run a fixed wheel? asking for a friend who is full of bad ideas
I have not seen it yet. I will not personally, it's a good thing to have. If you snap your derailleur, you can convert to single speed and keep on trekking. No pun intended.

Thanks for the compliments on the Crux guys, I can't wait to race on it- unfortunately I developed a fairly severe knee injury a few weeks ago so I haven't really been able to train or ride at all lately.

Here's my Epic- got a new crankset and cassette on it, think this'll be it's final form aside from some carbon bars that come in. Can't wait to be able to race this one either.

>>1284356
That's a beautiful bike, but the bars are very stupid and the fenders and bag don't really belong. Anyone know what cranks those are? I've never seen a 3 piece crank that had the classic look while also being 110BCD.
>>
>>1284376
>>1284356
Not sure why there's so much hate for those bars and panniers now, I had the same parts for years and years on a different frame, now retired, and nobody ever said anything unfavorable about them... not that I care, they work well for me and that's all that matters. The cranks are nothing special, just cheap chinese 110 bcd cranks that I stripped the anodizing from and polished to a matte finish.

>>1284418
I understand the appeal of this kind of bar. I used to run a set of nitto moustache bars set up basically the same way, offering the same riding position. It was comfy as fuck!
But the look of it is just really bad, especially with the black bar tape and tig welded stem. If you used red or brown bar tape and a more traditional style stem, it would look a lot better.
>>
>>1284518
hmmm i really don't mind those tig welded stems, they are period correct for 90s bikes

95% finished. Considering swapping the ridiculously long 150 mm stem for something shorter to get a bit more upright. Waiting on U brake rear to arrive. But yeah, rides gud, hauls beer gud
>>
>>1284554
I don't think the brooks saddle fits the style but it's all about comfort.

I agree the long stem looks a bit off but IDK if it was stock. I just would have gone with replacing it with another triple in front because those GTs are truly all mountain bikes made to go from your house, down the road, down the path, up the mountain and down the mountain. In my mind a small front rind and wide cassette can't fully do the flats. One of the fun things about 90s era MTBs is having that big ring you occasionally use on-road.

I picked this up as a frame/stem only, so all other parts are either from my stash or scrounged or aliexpress/Amazon specials. If it came 3x I likely would have kept it that way.
The stem is actually pretty sweet, it's the original GT flip/flop. Double quill wedge steerer insert and removable faceplate. I would like to keep but it's just too dang long to be comfy. Maybe I could chop 70mm out of it and Tig it back together but dunno if I'd trust it. I thought about getting some swept back townie or moustache bars but I had the mini bmx ready to throw on and I think long stem and swept bars would just look a bit wack.

the subject should have the light bouncing off of it and into your lens.
in this case, the light reflected off the bike is bouncing away from the lens, resulting in the entire subject in shadow and throwing a shadow toward the lens.
you cannot *graph* the *photo*ns if they're all shooting the opposite direction.

you took a picture of shoes.
I know this isn't /p/ but this really shouldn't be difficult for adults to understand, yet a/n/ons constantly fuck up the most very fundamental idea of photography.

Ok, "relatively" high bb, or rather the appearance of it with the almost non-existent bb drop on both bikes.

It definitely has 26" tires, or at least smaller than 700c. The bb might not actually be that high with the 26" tires.

I rode it down a half-mile street near my neighborhood; I got it to 40 mph but pretty sure it could go faster because it didn't stop accelerating. (also I stopped pretty early on because the bike started wobbling and I only had one brake in the rear)

It's a 1000w electric motor driving the front wheel and a 80cc 2 stroke gas motor driving the rear wheel. You can pedal to accelerate faster.

>>1286970

Dont, you can always get a riser stem. What's more fearful is snapping a steerer tube from not clamping around the compression plug.

Cut the tube, I ride 5k miles per year and on shit roads. I would be afraid of not cutting it

I'm gonna suggest, with very little expertise, that your fit might be wrong and not dailed at all. I have had my saddle like that and the real fit I needed was saddle slammed back and a lower stem. Also ism saddle for prostate in droppy road position

Basically also I'm gonna say your stem is high so it is unlikely you will ever move it up... Probably needs to go lower over time

not him but the housing is somewhat alarmingly straight (compare to the slight bend from bar to frame) however, that's really just a preconceived notion. bare cables on downtube shifters run straight.
it's actually cool looking since it's parallel to the seat stay.
since it runs straight you maybe could remove the housing, it might look cool (?) but that's some trouble for no functional reason; just aesthetics.

This, cutting the steerer has little effect on used prices because you're selling for pennies on the dollar anyways.

This is just a gripe from cheap asses who only buy used wishing the bike had more steerer. It's not like their cheap asses that only buy used are actually going to pay more for it.

What if you use star nut

>>1287308
If you cut, you tap it down. If you dont, tapping it down would be a good idea if the top cap screw can reach
>>1287302

Word..I had a 5foot 4 and a 6 foot 6 couple buy my used fuji (cut steerer) after I told them that the bike was a poor fit for either of them , 58cm...they just saw a flashy bike and wanted it...they saw a discount. Sold it for 500-600 with over 15k miles...got 100 percent of use out of it.

I knew they were gonna ride it less than 200 miles EVER

That bike up top. Sold it for 5-6 hundre... bought it for about 1200 with tax, tons of miles, several crashes..I was very happy with sale

> The only thing pissing me off is the short fenders

#MeToo but its a 26" frame with 27.5" wheels, so clearances are tight - I'll have to get creative to get it addressed.

Crankest is fine. Craftsmanship is piss-poor, some edges are not chamfered or even deburred, arms are anodized to different hues and there are sploches all over it. But its stiff and gets the job done. 2 years, no issues. best $26 ever spent.

They unironically replaced XTR :)

Nice trips,

To be completely honest, bikepacking is fun because you can ride really fast without losing out much because of your pack..
but it's freaking annoying to pack and unpack your shit.
I will never go panniers but bikepacking bags will make your head hurt till you learn how to use it.
BUT and this is a huge but, it looks freaking good while riding on the bike.

Just look at this diagram and imagine parts of it being destroyed for the next 7+ decades of your life. I say this as someone who just going into fixed gear... I rode 4 miles without brakes and one of my knees has hurt for a week. I've learned my lesson. Using brakes only now. The fixed gear is just for cadence training and forced exercise imho

Hell yeah. I will get one next time I need one. I love cheap sturdy stuff.

Finishing it this week when the the cassette for the 650b wheels comes in. Should have just bought a frame and 2 wheelsets, but I wasn't expecting to score hydro shifters + XT m8000 for cheap.
>>
pure white bikes with accented coloured bars, wheels, seats, etc are based

prove me wrong
>>
>>1287545
You need to post something to support your assertion before anyone can disprove it.

>>1287536
Why would you want a second cassette unless you're also planning to swap your chain out when you change wheels?

>>1287498
>all French
Maybe if you're not counting the saddle.
>>
>>1287556
The bike and components are all brand new; not sure why I'd need to do anything but small derailleur adjustments between wheel swaps.

I own a 2017 tcx that I run with 700c x44mm tires mostly for gravel riding and I fucking love it.

i can only afford chinkshit right now and fancy brake levels with shifters would cost more than the bike itself, i finally got the old sugino on it, the cranks and chainstay clearance is insane but it works, i'm quite satisfied with it.

>>1287475
Oh shit, that's a giant tcr. I was gonna buy...fuck that noise

Not a wrecked car, but If you showed me a Tacoma with a broken frame from corrosion, I would

>>1287475
I can fix that desu senpai, it is easier to repair carbon fiber than welding aluminum (to me)
>>
>>1287644
Hey things you can easily switch to a new bike when this inevitably breaks
>>
>>1287644
alternating stripes of reflective tape up the fork/ anything to make it more garish to make it uglier, so you go right the way round to cool again.
wald basket or ziptie any metal basket/crate on a front rack. You've got bosses on your fork for it, which should work, if you space them out with longer bolts.

you could get a front brake that isn't made out of chinkesium or some nice tires but i wouldn't bother.

It's a piece of garbage
>>
>>1287695
giant has a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects on the frame, like most major CF bike makers.
>>
>>1287708
don't buy a steel bike then if you are worried about corrosion
>>
>>1287727
>better avoid any bicycles at all costs then buddy
what brand of shit bikes do you buy that snap in half?

>>1287843
surface corrosion is different from a frame snapping in half because of steel that was made from shit steel that rots through before its time

You anons dont understand my point....why would you want a brand that is built so shit, that it snaps in half from normal use, before its time.
90s mountain bike, here we go

Thanks Anon. It usually has a saddle that matches the bar tape but I'm experimenting with saddles just now.

you need fenders, I find it weird you have mounts on the fork for fenders but not the rear

>>1287498
sexy

>>1287609
I want to try a cambium but no one I know has a test saddle so I'm afraid if it doesn't fit right after dropping the big bucks on one, I'll just deal with a shit fit. My current saddle works but it could always be comfier. I understand that battle of finding "the perfect" saddle
>>
>>1287773
I was expecting this one, I keep an eye on gumtreee at some point, just in case anything nice show up.

>>1287779
I do like the reflective tape idea thx, I will not go into buying expensive stuff that are almost half the price of the bike.

>>1287998
I am about the make 3d print for mudguards for the front and the rear.
I might need to drill 2 holes for the rear one, and tape them, I believe it s m3 or m4 screws

thx you for the replies and the ideas

hey, if you're still around, could you discuss the technique you employed for that?
