>>1343384well it's not sacrilegious but it's also just like fucking... why dude ?I mean how rare and expensive are decent old frames... not very at all not that gaspipe shitters dont have their place but it's certainly not loads of effort
>>1343384and didn't your fucking gaspipe shitter crack at the dropout? you'd think that would be you learning your lesson
>>1343392not him, but it cracked just below the lug on the downtube, near the headtube.
>>1343390>the only options are rusted out gaspipe crap or a vintage NOS De Rosa formerly owned by MerckxWhy does 4chan make people act this way?
>>1343365Hey Zishan is alright in my books, a little weird but alright.>>1343389>marathon plusFack, if it was a supreme or base model I'd say meh but the plus is unwearable. There's bikes that never see another tire once they wear Marathon pluses. I read bromptyboi recently got in a wreck in the /drt/>>1343384>You elitistsFor /n/ being a bunch of poorfags, their cycling fringies sure are quite elitist
>>1343395Tell me you wouldn't trade your left nut for a vintage NOS DeR<3sa formerly owned by Merckx himself. That's what I thought...
>>1343400Old bikes don't really excite me. They're interesting from a historic point of view but it's never occurred to me that I should own one. Then again I'm old. To me it's just "old stuff that isn't as good". Maybe you're not and you feel a sense of romanticism about old things. That's normal.
>>1343398he did, he's fine though. same thing almost happened to me the other day, same area.
>>1343401You're right though, I kinda do romanticize it due to growing up watching cycle racing and always wanted to be part of it but never had the means.>>1343403It's good he's alright, safe riding BoomerMan

>>1343472lovely bikebased and stvzopilled the only thing i don't like is the inline barrel adjuster, not having it at the cablestop is a little unclean and man it's annoying that derailers don't have them any more but it's a really really nice build though good job the modern touches + retrodouche touches are perfectly balanced and don't clash at all
>>1343475Thanks man! I agree with you about the barrel adjuster, I hate it but I had to run this longboi dangler to clear the 36t cog. If I could do it over again I'd have gotten a different dangler.

This time of year i fucking love where i live.
this is now my fastest bikeit's way lighter than the other one and has some potential to be upgraded (new bikes would literally be 5 to 10x the price i paid for this one on my area)to do: get hood cover, replace the thumb shifter with an actual brifter, replace the saddle for something not so ugly, get a modern seatpost without that stone age one bolt thing,get new tires (first priority), cut the steerer (first to do)when:god knows>>1343318that rear derailleur is elegant; i remember some anon mocking your bike on the steel is real thread saying that bartape wouldn't last a month, seems to be doing fine.>>1343356wouldn't the front pannier touch the ground when cornering?>>1343457there's some mad lads that race on the british uphill season, i have immense respect for them. good speed anon, hope you do well>>1343520the chrysler blue do blend nicely with the water; looks comfy and warm, nice place

>>1343392Headtube as >>1343394 said.It's a really common failure of steel frames in general. Especially if you're going to be abusing it off of curbs and jumps.>>1343390The frame was literally found in the trash, so. 3$ in paint for something that was nearly my ideal size at the time.As opposed to searching around for a frameset that was in my budget at the time, had enough clearance, and that I wouldn't mind rolling the dropouts on.>>1343409thx for liking my dead bike anon. I'd ride you're too, desu.>>1343433You're not wrong though I'm not a namefag.>>1343531That rear derailleur was a 3$ shimano tourney. Good enough for the time.That bar tape is now ~4 years old and I'm still riding it on another build.
>>1343318what gear ratios ?
reposting here for /n/arcissism
>>1343679if you ever want to upgrade, some expensive tyres will make this significantly faster comfier and give better grip
>>1343683First order of business is to lose about 70 pounds. Priorities can be queried after that. Do need to grab a metered tire pump though.
>>1343688don't give up because you're doing good anon, I have a feeling you've already made a lot of progress. It takes a lot to do what you're doing and compared to the majority of other fatbodies out there who ain't doing shit, you're ahead of the competition man. Keep it up
+1 for night riding
>>1343688Nah m80 just do the pinch test. Can you dent the tire with your thumb by more than 1/16th the depth to the edge? No? S'allgood.

>>1343520My first guess is Finland.
Is this a good thread to post a general bike question? I dun goofed with a new inner tube for a 700c wheel. It burst almost immediately and for some reason, it ripped out the rim tape. I have old rim tape for a 26" wheel, so I stretched it and put that on my 700c wheel. Is there anything wrong with what I did?
>>1344411Actually quite close, pretty small coastal town in South eastern Sweden.
>>1344194Been too long, welcome back
>>1344434Your rim tape will be fine but if you notice you're having flats on the inside of your tubes, you'll need new tape or make a go around with electrical tape.
Taken a few moments after eating shit going down a hill, these crappy brakes almost killed me, so definitely upgrading those next.
>>1344463Those brake pads look like total shit, they are probably all that need replacing.
>>1344468They're almost brand new pads I got from the LBS, are they just low quality? Any recommendations?
>>1343356God damn are those fenders ugly
Any better helmets than the Giro Synthe MIPS at around 150€?
>>1344475Fuck me, wrong thread. I'm a retard, sorry
>>1344446Wonderful; thank you for your help! I am now using my old inner tube, repaired, rather than the new one which was made for much narrower wheels and seemingly exploded after about a mile of riding. I assume you are all experts who are now laughing at my comical idiocy, but that's fine.
>>1344470Not that anon. Those pads are trash. It also looks like you have along pull front brake that is single pivot and not caliper style. So bad pads and your most important brake has the wrong leverage. Pick up a tektro r559 for the front.
>>1344503Thank you anon, I was going to post in BQG about some new brakes but you saved me the trouble, appreciate it!

>>1343510Elite choice on them bottle cages, mate.
Frame is too big for me, but with saddle like this, my fit is great. I got short arms, this way I can still sit more sporty than a regular bike, but not as sporty as a full on racer. It's got to be 40 year old and still has mostly original parts.
>>1345154you could get a saddle with longer rail and scoot it all the way to the front while also being able to raise it a little closer to level with the handlebar. would look weird but a saddle bag would make it seem less offstill, that's a lovely bike, in great shape, do you find yourself using those second brake levers? they're sketchy
should i paint this old piece of crap on yellow ? i was thinking on bare steel with clearcoat too but i already bought a can of yellow paint>>1345154consider changing those meme brake levers>>1344819even rotated it still is a shit picture>>1344463those back break shoes look misaligned, also is that a voss water bottle ? lmao>>1344194sik colors>>1343549how comfy are those tektro levers ?
>>1343318Got my brother in law into bike riding 2 months ago, and after a couple of rides i entered us together in a local bike race.To make it bearable for him, we did the short route and i went on this beautifull 1998 Peugeot Performance 5000 i have just inherited and restored from a family member. (Columbus steel and Shimano RSX 7 speed group).I told him to expect getting dropped early, but I managed to break away from the pack and had him on my wheel for the rest of the ride. And wouldnt you know it, we ended up winning. (mind you with an average speed of only around 30km/h) All in all, a really great experience for both of us on his first race. >Pic related, my bike at the finish line.
>>1345264god fucking damn that is a pretty bike
>>1345264That's a really pretty bike anon, fuckin love purple
>>1345254That is a weird boik m80. 10/10 triggers spergs right?>>1345154The chance that the safdle.being completely slammed and being the right heoght are pretty small. And the beyond-minimum-insertion stem tells me you are disabled and 45-50 years old. No offense. >>1344785Hoa's that attached?
>>1345283Those decals look kinda offAlso your seatpost clamp is backwardsDope bike otherwise, digging the slammed -17°
>>1345287Not happy with the decal placement. When I strip the frame and put new ones on bare metal it'll just be a single cannondale on the downtube and a headbadge. Also that is how the seatpost clamp is on much of the CAAD line. Drilled on the front, too.
>>1345291>Also that is how the seatpost clamp is on much of the CAAD line. Drilled on the front, too.Wow, had no idea. Cool.
>>1345292It's apparently better for not crushing carbon or something. I am mistaken. It's drilled on the back, but the factory seatpost clamp has a notch that fits into the gap. I could swap it out for a normal one or modify this one, I guess.
>>1345296Nah man looks neat
>>1343668That *was* a 50/34 on 11-32 9 speed.
>>1345254what the hell kind of frame is that?Instead of the downtube joining at the bottom of the headtube, it joins right under the top tube and the headtube just hangs down 5 inches?
>>1345321Ha has a bunch of spacers on the steerer. I cannot imagine it works well but it is not headtube you're seeing.
>>1345321>>1345342correct, it does work tho, i'm good at hacking stuff.i got fooled by the seller, original fork was cracked and the bike was probably crashed and then somehow fixed, how they did it remains a mystery, i don't know how braze on works but it seems that they modified the angle of the downtube around the bb too.TL;DR: it's shit but it works and i learnt how to fix bikes
>>1345254>how comfy are those tektro levers ?They work. Your bike is... eccentric...
>>1345264very nice dudei suggest you buy some nitto noodlesyou will find the flatter ramps and higher hood position a lot more comfortablecomfy bars change a bike so much
>>1345466That is the gigachad bar style for vintage bikes.
>>1345264pls be in london
>>1344194That handlebar form is weird. To me it looks like you can't brake efficiently in most of the hand positions. Nice photo and nice bike even though i don't like the frame pump. >>1345264Fuck that's a nice frame, i'm jalous anon. Fender is ugly as fuck and the brake lever position is weird though. I would personnally put modern wheels and cassette but that's a matter of personal taste.
>freshly built and ready to rumble
>>1345602>drop bar mtbapex cringe, anon

I'm reall pale. Want to start riding on bicycle to get some stamina back and additionally some light tan. Should I use some cremes?
>>1345624yes, sunburn is different from suntan and you should at a minimum protect your face, neck, ears, and arms
Would u ride?
>>1343510>very nice bike>chain in both the big ring and first>brand new tires not aligned with stemso close to perfection
>>1345657I wanna ride it anyways
I've been told that people here hate flatbar road bikes, why do you hate me so?
>>1345689Nah they're fine. But if you are going to have lock on bar extensions then you should just get bullhorns and call it a day.
>>1345690I appreciate the flexibility of bar ends and see no benefit of a bullhorn over such setup.
>>1345689ahahahha you're gonna regret it soon anon what a fucking dumbcunt
>>1345689I intend to rock the Flat Bars on my next road bicycle. Pretty good :D
I post my bike.
Wow. Did not expect this many replys on an old Peugeot. A little more info on it. It was bought around 1998. It has sat in a warm garage without being ridden for those 20 years, and as a result nothing on the bike was worn! (Its even the original chain, showing no signs of wear!) The bartape was completely faded and had to be replaced along with the tyres which were horribly deformed. The bike rides like really well, and apart from being a bit heavier it really doesnt hold me back.>>1345276>>1345280Thanks guys. I think the purple and orange looks really cool aswell, though a bit of an unusual combination. >>1345466Im trying to keep the bike as close to stock as possible, and i've actually grown fond of the strange handle possition. but thanks for the advice! >>1345573Sorry to dissapoint. I live in Denmark. Though i did live in London earlier in my life.>>1345596Thanks! yea the fender is an old horrible clip-on. But on the day of the race it was pouring down, so i decided to put it on, to avoid showering my brother in law, hanging on my rear wheel. The fender is normally off, and i only ever ride it on sunny days.
>>1345741Great looking. Love purple bikes. Heres mine. Picking up my Cinelli in purple tomorrow will post that when I get it.
>>1342625Meme drive on a cyclist's day.
>>1345742This, at least. Also safety.
>>1345254I just looked at the back brakes and they are, not sure how that happened, good eye. And yeah that's a Voss water bottle, I lost my other water bottle last time I rode and haven't replaced it yet, don't bully.
>>1345750Lovely bike (despite toeclips) but isn't your left brifter way further down than your right? You're gonna fuck something up man
>>1345750are those VP toe clips? i have two pairs and absolutely love them, best foot retention there is outside actual clipless pedals (one thing you might want to improve is using leather straps, much stiffer and hold position better)never considered green bar tape but it looks neat from your bike so i might get some myselfnice build
>>1345754your bike intrigues me so muchit is firstly a good looking bike, but the retro direct drive system takes the gold since there just a handful of people with them and you seem to have taken the more genuine route. do you actually find yourself using the benefit of the second gear? compared to a single speed of the same weight and build, would a retro direct drive bike like that excel and achieve higher average speed all around?
Rode around Yosemite valley
>>1344210>>1344345>>1344445thanks lads>>1344402>>1344405yeah, norcal. sf bay area to be exact. >>1345596The handlebars are admittedly polarizing. Velo Orange Dajia Far. Braking from the hoods is acceptable. Braking from the drops is fucking incredible. One finger (with canti brake!) on all be the very steepest drops. The flat section in the drops allows for a firm grip without any hot spots on the front or back of the palm like you get on some more traditionally rounded drops, and the wide sweep encourages an elbows-out posture that allows more leverage on the bars. Feels like piloting a fuckin' speeder bike, especially in these redwood forests.
>>1345614>>1345623I like a good monstercross build as much as anyone but this ain't it. The handlebars on that thing are doofy high by any standard. orange + camo is redneck cringe and bent thomson seatposts will never look good. fargos are fun but calling this "peak bike" and "best bike in the thread" is hilariously dumb.(Also not to be too pedantic, but if you've got a very slopey top tube, suspension-corrected fork, and >>50mm tires, you're out of "monstercross" territory and into simply "mountain bike" territory, dorpbars or no.)
>>1343994thanks. you live in Vancouver by any chance? Norco is a local brand of mine.>>1344864lol thanks my guy>>1345658thank you friend

I'd concur with that other anon's recommendation to get some Nitto noodles.>>1345385What the fuck, man?>>1345602Where's your saddle and handlebars?>>1345636Without a question. All day.>>1345740Really nice. Please check your rear-brake alignment. Something appears to be wrong there.>>1345741HNNNNG. Moar.>>1345750Like it. But what's wrong with your brifter position? One side seems way off.>>1345754Tell me about that drivetrain please. Looks intriguing. A really cool bike. Won't endorse sticking that wrench between the spokes. Looks kind of dangerous.>>1345922Nice methmobile, bro. Using the bikes as decoy is an ingenious idea.
>>1343549clubs? no faces? where's the ace of spades? where's the jack of hearts?
>>1345602This fit looks all sorts of wrongI can see the boomer with sandals+socks on it slowly pedaling with the saddle too low and knees almost hitting the handlebars
>>1345636>some kind of slow looking town riser bars>no rack>no basket>no fenderswhat is it for?
>>1346058Thanks for the Youuuuus. Nice brakes.
>>1346060Lol Jack of Spades in back wheel, cards are off now but was a joke for another thread
>>1346091I have the basket but I’m still trying to find a way to install it without looking pig ugly. Despite sitting bolt upright it’s pretty fast though.
>>1346060>>1346105Err, I meant the back wheel has Jack of Clubs. Jack of Spades is not a good card. Not like it matters anyways. Also, 4 of clubs and 8 of clubs are the official ID cards for both 4ch and infinitych when the real happening kicks off.
>>1346048until someone posts a real mountain bike here it's the best bike in this thread. road riding blows.
>>1346156Nah, >>1344194 this is best bike in the thread. Whenever Black Mountain shows up, it takes the show.
>>1345750cool bike. Looking forward to seeing your Cinelli.>>1346058 Will post more of the Purple Peugeot when i get some good pictures. Untill then, this is my Mountainbike. Its a Canyon - Grand Canyon AL 6.9 hardtail. Rides really well, and I won it at a police auction for around 400$. Needed a new chain, cables and brake bleeding. All in all a pretty good deal compared to the used-bike market here in Denmark.
One of only two or thre pictures I got ot of a two month long biking/backpacking vacation in the SW and California this spring.

I can't imagine it being particularly suited for riding anywhere.
>>1346019I have the same bars on my tcx and i love em !I have some deda parabolic clip on tt bars on there and it's a killer gravel bar setup.I use the hoods for general riding, the drops for technical stuff when i need the extra leverage and the tt bars on anything long and flat.
>>1345874Didn't actually think about it, I've built this bike mostly for fun, and to try how all this pedaling backwards works. It certainly takes some practice to do it right, muscles work totally different than normally. I think riding a fixed gear before would help a lot, but I did it years ago and not for long, so it's not really my case. Also I feel like 170mm crank arms are a bit too long, but anyway I think it's overall better than a regular single speed. You can pedal backwards for quick start, at climbs or against wind, and normally when going faster. Some people set their drive the other way (smaller freewheel for pedaling backwards), but I think the classic way is better for beginners.>>1346058I'm not gonna dwell into how it works, just google "retro direct" and you'll find some good videos on that topic. It's pretty simple once you understand it. Also the wrench isn't just pressed between spokes, an o-ring keeps it in place pretty well, so it's not as suicidal as it looks like. I've put it in here because pedals tend to unscrew when pedaling backwards, I used a loctite on them, but I keep the key just in case.The bike also comes with a banana box.
>>1345689People hate on flat bar road bikes here but cream themselves over 90s mtbs with slicks which are just shittier iterations of the same conceptPlus they don’t understand how much of a game changer bar ends are

>>1346319>>134631990s mtb with slicks isn't a poorfag road bike, it's a poorfag comfy touring bike and the ride of a nice old chromoly frame with supple tyres, is far comfier than that of a 'flat bar road bike'. The other appeal is that for a commuter they're stable and load well and have eyelets, and relatively cheap for theft. basically if you want something stiff and fast then you're probably interested in going fast and riding long distances and the ergonomics and aero of drop bars becomes very important. And if you don't want to go fast or ride seriously long distances then you should get something comfier and not waste money on marginal preformance like tight spacing from a road group and not cuck yourself with 28mm tyres, fragile wheels, an overgeared drivetrain and a stiff frame.
>>1346179>>1346416greetings, fellow mtbanons. how many of us are there here? i know there's also canadanon with the nukeproof and surly, and the anon with the giant fathom 1.also, nice norco. fluid ht was top of my list for a while, until i started moving towards steel frames.
I primarily ride a 29er Gravity hardtail from bikesdirect and rode a fixed gear for years but finally decided to call it on the fixed and get something a little easier on the knees with brakes.
Hi guys, it's been a while since the last time I've posted my bike.I found a cheap rear derailleur for like 7 dollars and get the toilet paper tier one replaced for this nice 10 speeds SLX derailleur. It has been working fine, so, I'll probably keep it that way. I think it looks cool.I also put on those fenders (yes, I fell for the meme) since rains season is approaching and I need to get prepared for it. I had to do some modifications since the space between the 35mm wheels and the brakes is basically inexistent. My brother and I went to a ride to make sure all the things were correct, and all appeared to be ok.Pic is from today after making a deep cleaning, next picture will be in some nicer place and with some dirt on it.
I just got the bar-ends today, going to give it a feel.I know the brakes are still where they are; but palming the "knob" while riding is actually comfortable since I used comfort tape around the entire end. I just can't brake while using the dropsies at the same time. I'll see how it works out tomorrow
>>1346798this obsession with dropbars is getting pretty cringeworthy
>>1346763I think you may have responded to the wrong posts
>>1346770Stems shifters are a downgrade if you got used to riding on the drops or hoods.If brifters are out of your reach you can buy clamp-on downtube shifters (or even a cheap clamp thumb shifter) and slap it on the downtube (or on the tops of the bars as i've done with mine)
>>1346798Rotate them to be level with the top tube and you're gold

>>1346783how do you ride uphill with cassette like this?
>>1346850No mountains in your pic nerd do you even ride uphill>>1346851Rad>>1346864Exploding knees
>>1346864probably doesn't have any hills in his area
Primarily for riding gravel, but I stuck with 23c tires for better efficiency.
>>1346851the 160mm hope rotors brake at the rivets very frequently
>>1346875Anon, 23c tires are less efficient across surfaces that aren't perfectly smooth (like, glass-smooth) than 25c. The bumpier and rougher the surface, the more watts you spend bouncing yourself over the bumps rather than absorbing them into the tire.nigger faggot, etc.
>>1346899>falling for cheap b8
>>1346901You got me
>>1346864As the another anon said, there are no many hills where I live. Also, the bike is intended to be only my commuter, that's why I have kept the same old road relation.Another thing is that the hub is an old Campagnolo record, so, I can only look for 8 speeds freewheels and, for those parameters, the relation is only that small.
>>1346875Beautiful gravel rig
>>1346829>>1346058Haha, I take it you don't appreciate my aero-TT chainrings? At least I removed the zipp decals (which took a long ass time)>>1346057Yup, did you happen to get that bike through a certain local team?
>>1346899>>1346901>>1346975Yeah kidding about the gravel, that bike genuinely doesn’t like bumps. Those are 23’s but only because they run wide on those rims due to their being almost 21c internal width. You’re kinda stuck using narrow tires if you want your deep section wheels to make any aero sense.
>>1346866i started that ride at sea level, and you can see the ocean, so you do the math. and i didn't stop to take a pic anyplace fun looking, because i was having fun riding those parts.
>>1343356>that garbage fenderline>"This is the peak of asthetics"
>>1345636>Would u ride?Would ride.>>1345750This thing deserves some love.
My new Cinelli I spoke about earlier in the thread. Steel frame and carbon forks plus campy centaur groupset. After bombing around on a 20+ year old bike clipped in, all I can say is wow. Everthing is so smooth. Love it.
>>1347092Nice. Is it also Columbus Thron tubing?
>>1346812My Schwinn 10-speed was stolen over Easter. I actually was given this bike by a kind co-worker. I am so used to drops I had to try these as getting an entire new bar and gear system adjustment was looking to be way more expensive. >>1346825Since I'm not going to be braking while using them, I figured angling them to give me a certain feel and ability to throw my hands back up on the top of the bar to break might be easier. I have to test a couple positions to see what the best ideal for me is.
Any of you guys have one of these cunts?I've got two bikes and bought this but I'm really hesitant to put my nice carbon road bike on it in case it falls.I've got my aluminium bike mounted up high and will give it a few days to see if it slides or moves.
>>1347092> radial 3 spoked flying purple Freder eater love it
TEAR DOWN > everything is fucked... everything
INSPECT FORKthank god the Fornaules is holding together ll the bearings are good no cracks and main unit was just critically low on oil... disassembled topped up with hyralic fluid and pumped to 200psi
BUILD UPI had this frame sitting around for a while waiting for this day i think its an Advanti im not sure but it had the almost the same Geo as my Silver Specialized ....problem was i didnt have deraileur hanger for it or the non standard headset and i was taking a huge risk doing this.... and thank god found both in parts bin ... so we are good to go with the final build !
OH YEAH !> NEW Frame seatpost hanger headset stem bars shifter cassette chain front ring cables brake fluid and pads Im over over the moon its a bigger bike and and its now properly sized to adult me. Rides jumps wheelies flicks wonderfully. Now I know it all works i will do another strip and polish just to trigger this faggot >>1343365
>>1345750>>1346798might have to work on the shoddy wrap jobs
>>1347284paint it gold plz and say ur bike is made out of gold
>>1347279Oh dang, I think I recognize that tool chest from the tool thread years ago. I always forget you're the one who machined some linkages for that LOOK fork whenever you post the bike that triggers everyone but I didn't know that tool chest was yours too.
>>1347284nice serfas drifters. good tires, nobody rolls with those but they've got great tread for urban and trail riding
>>1346798rotate bars forward until bar ends are parallel to ground.>>1346783you too anon. cool bianchi.>>1346770stem shift lyfe>>1345740Is that a Ti industries era Raleigh turned fixed hippie?
>>1347092Yoo nice dudeit looks awesomei love the big chunky headtube and the colour and the parts on it im very jealous I just think the branding is a bit much. If the decals are on top of the clearcoat, i'd remove a few. You can do it with a hair drier and a credit card. I'd lose the seat tube one, just the bit that says 'road' on the top tube, maybe some on the rear triangle, and of course the wheel safety stickers and the bike shop sticker.
>>1346783I'm really impressed with how much you've done with this anon It looks really clean, you fixed it up great the electrical tape is a nice touchi'm surprised that derailer works too lolyou should get a wider cassette, these should work; https://www.bike-components.de/en/Miche/Primato-Campagnolo-8-speed-Cassette-p807/https://www.bike24.com/p220047.html13-26 or 13-28 Although if your hacked together shifting only kind of indexes then maybe keep the tight cassette because it will work better.
>>1347198I've got one like pic, had it for 1.5 years I think now it's been rock solid.
>>1343365>>The worst bike on /pybt/ always is that idiot who has stripped down his aluminum bikes to pretend they are Ti bikeshow would you even go about that they're completely different colour metalsstainless steel I could understand, but Al is way too bright.
>>1347198you could anchor it to the wall for peace of mind
>>1343318look what i made
>>1347330some brushed allum looks quite good, with coloured highlightssorry for posting a not my bike in a pybt but yeah
>>1347335yeah it looks fine it just don't look like Ti
>>1347338surei don't think retarded straya anon is tryign to pretend he's a tifag though he's just doing his own (absolutely stupid) thing.
This is what peak performance looks like, minus the 3 year old bag that hangs to one side.
>>1347344why don't you have a bottle cage lol
>>1347344why not get a real rack anon, it looks like your bike has the mounts for one
Get the miles in. The rainy season approaches -- thunderstorms today.
>>1343318WTF saddle angle? Bet your shoulders hurt.
Riv Atlantis w/ Paul, Phil, and Nitto
>>1347489Wrong photo, what's in the bag?
>>1347489You forgot a bottle cage
just got my first bike! i'm glad i did some research to know to get a road racer type of bike so i can get the most out of it. was only $120 so i think i got a pretty good deal
>>1347323you don't think the 10 Cinelli decals were enough?
>>1347434>flame decalsFUCK yeah that's RAD as HELL
>>1343356Its okay but I don't see the practicality, once it starts getting scuffs and dirt, its going to look real shit
>>1347434Holy shit this looks so Japanese and OTT, fine work anon
>>1347487The photo is from a low angle. It's level.
>>1347059Clean as always>>1347092Cool saddle>>1347434Fuggin nice bruv>>1347536This is probably a joke but just in case, please watch any video online about "bike fit"
>>1347294low quality post>>1347312thanks man, its my mates tool chest. He owns his own bike/machine shop and we work for each other. The machinery the tools and the parts bin are a godsend >>1347318>nice serfas drifters. good tiresi love them and have been using them for over 15 years they last forever and i shred them. I run them ghetto tubeless but im thinking of getting some swchwalbe big apple next time.> nobody rolls with thoseyeah serfas distributors are bit weird and not many shops stock them >>1347330>how would you even go about that they're completely different colour metalsTHIS 100% only a fucking idiot would think my bikes were Ti. They are totally different colour / sheen. I never said they were anything but polished aluminium in countless threads and even gave tips on how to do it and maintain the shine.>>1347340>retarded straya anonOOOOFF>he's just doing his own (absolutely stupid) thing.My thing is i do not buy my bikes new. Hence i do not get to pick the colour. I much prefer the polished metal aesthetic to the shit paint job / colour that came with the frame. I like this new black look but it just screams ghetto / stolen so ill strip it soon. I have stripped and polished 6 of my bikes over the past 20 years and it is indeed my thing. its looks a lot better in real life when you have the dynamics of the light bouncing off it. I dont get the hate or why people are triggered by it....
Spare parts fixed gear. Very fun. Very dumb.
>>1347536I know anon is making a joke but 120 for an original paint job univega mixte that has an extended quill stem you can ebay is worth that money
>>1347732>original paint job univega mixteYes, but look at the picture again, what else do you notice about that frame?>an extended quill stem you can ebaySure, and while he's at it he can list the vintage reflectors for sale too.
>>1347732Its a small girls bike you dork.
>>1347745don't try to question my style you aluminum stripping namefag biotch
>>1347750please don't LARP in a Post (You)r Bike thread
>>1347740Downtube and cross-tubes both broken, right?Undoubtedly because of having a giant fucking lever pushing in the frame's weakest direction.
>>1347685>need a tool to remove your tool.Why not wing nuts?
>>1347815really lovely photo and really lovely bike anon
It's been fun to mess with.
I've disassembled the geared bike to clean and lube and decided to have another go at setting a functional handlebar shifter setup with a pair of downtube shifters (the thumb shifter was too annoying to get in position to change), rate my attempt
>>1343318>painted blackWhy are you pretending to have a carbon fiber bike?
>>1347885forgive me for pone posting>>1347681>>1347489those look very fun to ride, i might try some townie style bars, starting to get really fond of them. >>1347434i honestly think you have the best bike in these threads, absolutely rad>>1347333looks like something Sam Pilgrim would come up with
>>1347885But how do you hold the hoods like thatIt looks like you can't rest your thumb anywhere
>>1347885stop giving me ideas, looks fair enoughhow comfortable is this ? also how are you routing the cable guide to the derraileur ? some sort of dowtube clamp type guide ? i might consider trying something similar but on the outer side just below the curve of the drop so it can be used with the pinky
>>1347807Lost em. Same reason most of my bottle cages are held on by disc rotor bolts. Couldnt be assed to go buy the proper bolt when I have like a billion ones that kinda work.
