And nah I fucking smashed the fork backwards.
It was a fucked crash but besides some bulging on the top tube shit looks and feels fine. I figure if the top tube cracks at the hole it won't be catastrophic. And if it is I bet the bike still won't crash under me. And if it does, well, shit.
Either way if I don't die I'd just weld a sleeve over it and keep riding.

Swedish Crescent världsmästarcykeln (Worlds championship bicycle). It got this name as marketing after swede Harry Snell won the road race world cup in 1948 with this frame. I have one and I basically know how to fix it inside and out and it's the most solid best feeling bike there is. As long as you know how to keep the bikes running well then the 60's and 70's 28" steel frames are super nice.

Why do you keep calling it a 'shitbike'? Do you not know anything about frames from the 40s and 50s? Anyways, here's an image of him on what's clearly a Crescent headbadge from that time period.
>>
>>1577352
I know a fair bit about Brit/French/Italian frames from the era. That’s why I call it a shitbike. A few corners cut are forgivable due to manufacturers doing their own thing but nothing about that frame says quality.

Fork dropouts are pressed, not actual dropouts. Fork crown is extremely thick. I’ll ignore the crank as a national thing. Stays don’t look tapered. Kickstand plate. Lack of braze-ons (braze ons were popular in the 40s on high end bikes, lost popularity in the 70s and came back in the 80s). Separate seat clamp. Poorly finished bronze welds. The only half decent looking thing about the frame are the rear dropouts.

I'm pretty sure you're full of shit now. It's obvious the dropouts are different. He won on a Crescent, he didn't win on that piece of shit Crescent. Rainbow stripes don't mean that particular model won, it means the brand won.

the dropouts are the same on the whole production run, that particular model won. he won the world cup and over 10 national titles on it so it's not such a shitbike is it now.

What are you on about? The bike you posted isn't the same as the one he raced on. The bike you posted is a shitbike. The one he rode on was maybe a shitbike, but certainly not the same bike as the one you posted, and not the same model because they only created the worldchamp model after he became a world champ.

I'm more used to the 51.5x68 mm Ashtabula bottom bracket, so the one on the Crescent bike looked a little small.
giving it the benefit of the doubt I considered it might be a two piece crank, but it turns out the forging of the crank arms is just really thin.
I think the single piece system makes the bottom bracket stronger but the crank arms weaker
its an oddity on road bikes except that LOOK makes one piece crank out of carbon fiber

adjust the angle of the pads without getting your hands dirty.
as said, technically deltas are finicky, need special tools, are hard to adjust properly, costed a shitload of money and the first generation was prone to malfunction.
It was more of a status symbol for high end Italian bikes from the period, which happens to be some of the finest steel bikes ever made.

on /sp/ they make fun of bianchi because the dominant world tour team ride bianchi (same as pinarello in the vroom years). By racing metric you could say they are the absolute best now. And they've always won races.

of all those brands too, bianchi is the closest to actually selling good value bikes. The others are all essentially memes. I don't know if that's a mark for or against to you.

i'm swedish and i only reluctantly got into cycling because of the postal service cutting back its service so the good mailboxes are placed further away. initially i thought the bike should be quite cheap so i looked at used bikes and learned about various bikes. crescent is one of those brands that's reputable or high end according to swedish normies (especially boomers) but they're really overrated. i'm also buttblasted that road cycling isn't much of a thing here and people mostly ride dutch bikes, department store hybrids and hobo cruisers like >>1584391

Those new bars look awesome. If you have a nagging feeling that the reach is a little much, like if you ride mostly on the curves of the bar before the hoods, then it's WAY too much. It looks like a lot. And your hoods are way ahead of your axle so less probably wouldn't hurt handling.

i dislike the blue cages. too busy. i love your totoro sticker.
the brake upgrade is sick.
the frame and tricolour stuff is beautiful
I don't like the black crank. A tricolour, DA or record crank one day if you have the chance to waste a bit of money on aesthetics would be nice.

the drops are above the axle, what's the point of having drops if you're never going to use them

for sure. I think it's worth setting up bars -high- enough so that you can comfortably ride in the drops.
Basically on a road bike, you don't want your hoods to be aft of the axle or it messes up your handling. Basically i'm just saying there's room for a shorter stem.
Your bike looks like it has a LOT of reach.
But maybe you just have a wierd body.
If however, you default to riding on the circled hand position (a good hand position, sure, but shouldn't be the default) as opposed to your hoods, I think you'd be better off with a ~20mm shorter stem.
>>
>>1585819
I think it could be from the picture angle. Maybe its a bit over the axle but it cant be that much
>>
>>1585830
being forward of the axle is not an issue
it might even be good in terms of handling especially descending
it simply means you have room to have less reach without compromising handling.

the world isn't 2d, look at where the other hood is in the pic, plenty of people have a long reach on their road bike, having a super upright and short reach position is newfag/geriatric armlet cope, only entry level and specifically "endurance"/gravel have a relatively short reach

people who complain about the reach being too long is the type of person who leans too much on their saddle and can't get comfortable, can't pedal with decent wattz, they also have freakishly short arms, they're doing it wrong

I don’t get the whole move to wider tires. I used to use 18c and 20c tires for the longest time when I lived in D.C. (which is famous for shitty roads and potholes) and it was perfectly fine.
Just don’t be careless and ride over glass and thorns

mate wrapping bartape is fucking piss easy it takes like 10 minutes. You should get good or pay someone to do it for you. Did you actually think fucking sewing leather onto your bars might be the even easier poorfag alternative to something that's fucking already stupidly easy now that you've been desperately searching for? jesus christ lad.

I did, that's not the problem. It looks and feels good, but after a week one point will be loose and then it's downhill from there.

I'll try this one, if it gets fucked up too I'm absolutely done.

pull it snug, how can it come loose, get your LBS to do it if you're such a retard that can't figure it out
>>
>>1586279
I do it super tight, if you saw it you'd say there's nothing wrong with it. I'll try this new tape and see, not giving away my money to anyone til put tape on my bike.
>>
>>1586283

Always buy quality tape. Stay away from the cheap cork stuff which comes apart very easily.
Fizik Tempo and Lizard Skins are my favorite tapes

i browsed bike24 for bar tape and it was mostly generic synthetic cork tape and odd colors, paying out the ass for lizard skins and such seem a bit extravagant, maybe later down the road when my bike is more or less maxed out in terms of viable upgrades i'll try fancier bar tape, but as of now i already have 2 pairs of synthetic cork tape one of which i paid like 3-4 euros for and one of which i got as a freebie with my aliexpress handlebar

>GCN has many tests comparing disks, rims and tyre widths, stopping distance, distance travelled after stopping pedalling with various tyres, pressures, widths, etc., etc., blah, blah, blah. I have only been in the saddle for 60 yrs from getting my first race bike in 1960. Have now switched to full carbon, tubeless, disks, wider tyres, etc. I am amazed at the feeling AND comfort... very important as you age, BTW. On my ride today I continued to be gobsmacked at the responsive feeling of the new technology. If an old fart like me can feel it, imagine what is does to young legs, lungs and hearts. BTW, my two Chromoloy bikes are collecting dust after decades of service.

I can't not push it, which is a bad thing since I have inclination on heart conditions and I easily bonk without noticing the first signs.

on a hot 25 degree C day I've got though 800 ml of water in 3 km, I guess I was biking too fast and had not drunk enough water earlier in the day
so much water should last around 8 km before I find somewhere to top it up again, and that's not much more than 20 minutes of biking on any bike

>Do you never ride for more than 4 hours?
no? what the fuck is this crazy hobo trash seriously
the number of people in my entire country that ever ride for more than 4 hours can probably be counted on one hand
who has time for that? do you have fun or is it some aneroxia type workout obsession?
