It felt strange at first, but it helps smooth out the handling on high speed gravel decents and gets me a little lower into headwinds.

>>1362510
The Kenda 26x2s in the dead car pic have seen 2 flat, dry, grassy cross races and the bike did pretty well. It is on the heavy side but it takes added weight very well with the 26x2.2 XR2s and surly fork. I've only ever done 60~70 mile rides, but I've done two overnight camping trips that totalled about 80 miles each. I'm building up to do some 200 mile roadie day rides in October and hopefully I'll be able to do the two 100 mile gravel races I'm signed up for by then.

If you want to try it with 700c wheels, I'd recommend going for narrower rims and a 27" fork. 700x45c is about the largest you can go. On a road frame like that the dropouts need to be placed into a special jig and rolled to fit anything larger than a 37. That frame being as small as it is the brake bridge *also* had to be heated and rolled upward.

Those are 700x45's and measure exactly that.

>>1362510

Yeah, I wish more people did OTS -> gravel conversions. They're just great for it.

>>Noice, I have been eyeing out Nukes for a while now, I love how their frames look.

Yeah, it's a super rad bike, all their stuff seems to be great value. The paint chips very easily though so consider wrapping it if you ride rocky stuff. UK frames in general are also super low... so I put some short 165 mm cranks on for pedaling in rocky uneven terrain.

>>I am jelly, not for the bike, but for the snow

Right on... snow adds a certain beauty to the landscape, although I'm ok without, 7 months a year is enough. Older pic tho from spring. However it did snow 50 cm in that area 3 weeks ago but should be about dry now...

Also, that's an awful lot of drop to the handlebars. Does the poster just have incredibly long arms? Otherwise that's a syc bike mang.

>>1363809
That's just what a derailleur looks on the big-big combination. On 1x systems it's best to run the chain as short as possible
>>
>>1363806
It's dust or grit or something that's made its way into my “““IP rated””” phone and lens. I need to try blasting compressed air into the openings to see if that can dislodge the particles, but I doubt it will work. The photo was much worse before I corrected what I could of the washing out.

Nothing wrong with that bike, rode it without needing to adjust it for 5000km, it rides well and it was extremely cheap, probably about 35% less than what other big brands offered at the same price range, for that price I could only get alu with sora from big brands. After all, I wanted this bike for fun riding and not racing or being serious, maybe some day I will get an overpriced fancy bike which will do exactly the same as this one but will weight 1kg less and will have nicer brakes (I don't like the rear brake)

Specialized Riva from a few years back. Honestly the single best saddle I have ever owned comfort wise. Not a fan of how grippy it is.

>>1363809
Derailleurs are designed to shift best with about 2 extra link pairs. Otherwise the tension is too low. As for the drop. I am just a very flexible person I actually feel super upright on this bike.

>>1363812
This.

>>1363814

the soft deda cork is great (sky blue) the other two start to peel because they are another material bonded to the foam.

If you like lizardskins (most roadies do not) then snag that nice blue color for the fuji.

The best thing about Deda tape is that it is so cheap you can change it like you do your underwear, every couple months or so.

Thanks. Got em at a performance bike that was closing.
>>
2014 Felt F65x. Bought it this morning, used, for 600 euroshekels. It is to replace my Specialized Crosstrail I've had for last 8 years. I only can afford to have 1 bike due to space constraints.

I commute by bike, I do it as a sport, I do touring few times a year. I ride 85% paved surfaces, rest is gravel and forest roads, sometimes crossing streams, so the bike has to be able to do all. This, despite being low-tier is a step up from above mentioned hybrid and I feel like this one can do a lot.

1. I need new tires for it, are Schwalbe G-One allround any good? In 35mm
2. How much of a sacrilege/inconvenience it would be to put fenders and rack on it? I already have those on my hybrid, but for some reason it seems wrong to equip this bike with it. It's much more sportier.
>>
>>1364324
That's a real beauty
>>
>>1364327
Thanks, kind anon. First more 'serious' bike, it makes me happy. I'm removing all the stickers from the wheels though, too busy for me. The frame is unfortunately painted.
>>
>>1364324
>sacrilege/inconvenience it would be to put fenders
For a do-all/commuter fenders aren't really optional unless you live in Arizona or something.
Does it even have fender mounting points? I just ordered an F30X, and there was some confusion and conflicting information about that.
>>
>>1364119
You mean headtube angle.

You can ride literally anything anywhere. The bike isn't going to explode. Git gud
>>
>>1364338
Yes, there is a threaded hole in front fork and 2 more in the frame for rear (near bottom bracket and in seat stays).
>>
>>1364342
Not that that says anything about the bike I ordered.
If it has mounting points then it's definitely not anything like sacrelige to mount fenders on it. Bikes look better without fenders but walking around with a wet butt at your destination is no fun, and neither is getting road spray in your face.

dude, is that frame a 65? you're either approximately 6'4" and you need to raise that saddle a whole lot, or else that bike is too big for you. there's no middle-ground, it's either one or the other.
cool assed bike tho.
personally I'd put plain cork tape on it and replace that boat-anchor-looking saddle with something at least a little more sporty in brown leather/synthetic leather.

Eh besides not habing a slack headtube it's fine. People have largely forgotten how enduro and cross country MTB used to be about slow, technical sections where a slack headtube angle really hurts.

For rolling over thing with suspension slackness is great but there are so many things you would fail to clear slowly that you could otherwise blow through due to the geometry of a modern MTB.

Shit?

>>1365624
The stem is fine... especially if you have a long top tube. I didn warn you about the inevitable grimy oxidation though.

It looks exactly the same as when I stripped it.

I literally said I wanted it to oxidize you dolt.

>>1365710
The welds have a little primer in them that I couldn't get out and didn't want to get with a wire brush or something.

As for it being anodized, while it *is* clearly anodized in some way, it's not a protective anodization. Looks to be more for paint adhering without etching, so it will deepen over time.
>>
>>1365720
Just to be clear, anodizing an aluminum surface so you can use a lighter paint and a non-etching primer is pretty common. Saves weight in a couple of ways at once.

60, I'm 6'1'', the saddle was at that height because I assembled the bike to see what needed to be worked on or replaced. Right now it has a new saddle but still not fitted yet, I still need to degrease everything, wrap tape, new tires, and I forgot what else.
We'll see how it fits, maybe I did make a mistake anyway because usually 60 is the largest I'm comfortable with.

You could put cruiser bmx bars on your bike, youd need a new stem if the bars are tapered but if not you could find some basic cruiser riser bars or surly sunrise bars on there for funsies, itd look like a mid school kona as it already has that sort of setup. Fr you can put bmx bars on literally anything in my opinion and it immediately gains street cred and becomes more comfy

They aren't so bad honestly, it's really nice over long distances where you're staying on the bullhorns. Even on the flats you just have to reach over and flick the shifter. Less annoying than those under brake shifters a lot of new bikes have, in my opinion.
>>
>>1366692
I guess I've never thought of them as any less comfy or convenient than any other set of shifters I've owned. They have a good tactile feel and make a satisfying click, and they're close to the hands when you're on the bullhorns, which is where I try to be as much as possible when traffic allows.

Here's the point my friend, I posted a picture of my commuter bike that I built up myself, with barend shifters that I used cause I like tri bars and thought they were cool. And now you want to argue about what shifters some random stranger on the internet decided to put on his commuter bike. I don't even know why I'm posting this. Go for a ride and get off the internet m8.
>>
>>1366859
Because you're autistic?
You're the retrogrouch angry about brifters and pretending your setup is somehow superior.
Also your frame is too big.

Please explain how convenient they are to shift when you're out of the saddle or need both hands on the bars.

Didn't notice the stem, just that the bike looked pretty smol with a really high saddle

I'm sure that bike must feel really weird, I have a bike (57cm frame) with a 50mm stem and it already feels similar to a 53cm frame bike I have, so I can't really imagine how sensitive must be the handling on that small bike with that non existent stem. Also hard to imagine the user's body proportion, must be a person with long legs and extremely short torso and arms.

I chose a deliberately shorter stem to see how it feels.
The handling is identical, and the countersteering during corners thing is a bit of a myth anyway (if you've never tried, try cornering with no hands.)

It's more direct, but since the headtube angle is the same all else is equal. What it does change is how responsive the bike feels when you need to turn the bars.

how is countersteering a myth? I descended as did you, you countersteer.

Is it more responsive now with a shorter stem? On my mtb Ive experienced the feel of better stability but less responsive when I put a shorter stem, I think it might have smth to do with your hand being more precisely above front axle on shorter stem, that being said, as a total package short stems are better for mtb, but Ive never tried it for road.
>>
>>1367254
You countersteer to lean the bike to start the turn, but once in the turn you're basically holding the steerer straight unless you're trying to adjust the turn.

Even so, the difference between a 40mm stem and a 120mm stem is only about 1/3rd of the total length.

>>1367254
On your mtb you probably have super wide bars.

It's all just a lever. Longer stems increase how far you have to move to turn the wheel. At the same time, you are weaker farther from your body, which makes it harder to turn.
>>
>>1367266
how does it behave when upright steering when you dont countersteer compared to long stem?

>At the same time, you are weaker farther from your body, which makes it harder to turn.

not if its compensated by short TT lenght...modern mtb geometry changed everything about TTs... Ive seen some small road bike brands that desingned the frames around shorter stems, they had longer TT and I think a bit steeper HA, magnesium frames as well, cant remeber the name but it was a french company...either way, for mtb my exp of long TT and short stem VS a short TT and 100 stem feel extremly different to me.

The shorter stem modern geo defiently needed more time to get used to it, while the longer stem short TT felt more nible and I got a better feeling of where the front wheel was (yes there was a rake a trail factor as well since smaller HA of old school mtb), but overall new geometry is superior for trail riding.

PS- modern mtb geometry is horrific for counter steering, not that much on trails since you can drift in berms, but its so hard to adjust the apex once in the corner and +40khm descending road on them is horrific.

what is a beater bike, I really don't understand this concept. You either ride a bike or you don't.
>>
>>1367996
I wasn’t going to consider a conversion until I realized how easy it would be to try it since it’s threadless. I was honestly just going to try to run a ghetto conversion by getting a 22.2mm grip diameter dropbar and leaving the original grip shifters on the flats, doesn’t bother me. I already have spare tektro road brake levers. Top tube is 58cm, all I’d need is a shorter stem to fit like my 56cm bikes.

When you live somewhere where theft is even a 1% chance, you don't ride your nice bikes for commuting.
The other reason to have one, is that maybe you have an ultra focused road bike, or mtb, or bmw. Then you just have a simple cheap bike to commute with, no need for expensive materials and parts.

>>1368009
The diameter doesn't matter, grip shifters won't fit around the bend in the bar.
Maybe if you disassemble them they might, but still probably not.

Took my first 100k+ ride yesterday, it went well except for the very hilly last 20k where my legs got sore. Bianchi is mine.

the last part of a long ride being hard is like how you need to poop when you get to the front door.

New flats. Dont know if i like the look.

camo is better then anything else that I can think of out there now.. got any suggestions or alternatives?
>>
>>1368128
You don't
>>
>>1368143
i would go pink, yellow, neon green or orange

your bike is lovely and minimalist and it just needs a little bit of flair

camo or black is just like the subtle build hasn't been restrained it's been cowardice

Got this from my good friends grandmom a couple weeks ago. Greased the bearings and put some new tires on, it's fun but it weighs 50 fuckin pounds and I live on a hill
>>
>>1368222
Pretty low tier bike but looks in pristine condition, if I were you I'd replace that road freewheel for a MTB one, so you have easier gears to tackle dem hills with
>>
>>1367110
Actually it won't go in big-big, chain is like 1 link too short.

And I'm OK with it.

>>1368031
nice, but

huh?
that path looks fucking awesome, too.

this
>>
>>1368321
It still could, and it would seize your chain and maybe rip your derailleur apart, so be careful.
>>
>>1368089
yeah, but not the saddle angle
>>
>>1368442
Angle looks fine for a leather saddle, I'm more worried about the lack of tension

never let anyone else ride your bike or you will end up with at best a bend derailer and hanger and at worst a bent frame and fucked wheel
>>
>>1368566
Nah dude, charge/fabric saddles are the comfiest
>>
>>1368439
>>1368576
Thanks. I'm aware.

Nobody ever touches the bike but me and it is fine with the short chain.

Reasoning for this: I swapped the group over from a bike with a shorter wheelbase and I'm too cheap to buy a new one. I was a mechanic previously so I'm very aware of the risks, this is a calculated cheap-out.
>>
>>1368767
Because chains are so expensive?

>>1368566
I like my Spoon. I have a narrow ass.
yours looks wider? as long as your ass is regular-sized it'll probably be fine.

now that you've got your saddle sorted, it's time to throw your cage into the ocean to rebuild the coral reef.

>Implying coral reefs exist in most places.
>>1368767
If you were a mechanic then why not just stop at a bikeshop and ask for a couple linkpairs of spare chain?
>>1368582
Here's hoping. I'm the troll Schwinn guy and that origin8 saddle was always my least favorite. Just barely wide enough. If I slid too far forward my sitbones would be wedged apart.

I agree with your analysis, this year Ive been getting back into biking after about a decade and Ive been using a 2007 Specialized bighit with a fork that was an inch too short for the bike. Before that I built up a Specialized Enduro (pic related) in 2008. Getting this 2019 YT Capra is like stepping 10 years into the future

Had a crash on a fast dirt section of a ride a couple of months ago and fugged the saddle somehow. The tensioner bolt doesn't do anything. My cycling funds got hammered by fixing up my commuter and installing dynamo lighting on it, so I've been dealing with the trashed Brooks on this ride. But yeah, it's become a bit too broken now, so I'll be replacing the saddle before I ride that bike again.

New to biking, well I haven't rode since I was a kid. Picked up my first adult bike the other day. Sure, it's a Nishiki but it does the job for now and is very fun to ride.

Bad welds. And stem, jesus
>>
>>1369913
those look like normal welds to me for a mid range AL bikeku. the dude that rides that bike is a bit of a bikenerd and likes to put weird stuff on there b/c he works in a shop and has access to all kinds of weird stuff. He says the short stem is fun AF and he's usually critical of things he dislikes.

>>1369137
maybe it's just for the roadie/tt crowd but I always thought those double water bottle holders that go under the seat looked badass. Maybe that'll work for you bro.

I never liked camelbak/hydration packs because by sweaty gorilla back just meant I was drinking warm water within a few hours. Plus the nozzles and squeezy tit mouthpieces always get all mildewy and gross. tough to clean outside of literally forcing dawn through it with a squeeze bottle.
>>
>>1369913
If you've seen better alloy welds than those on cannondales it's because they've been ground smooth.

>>1370057
Critical of things I dislike? I only ever reply to people going on about mine or other people's bikes like it is some sin against god.

I do insult retrogrouches though. I will give you that.
