no front brake, no bottle cage. too racy, not practical enough for me. i'd rather convert a regular road bike to single speed than ride a track bike.

Single speeds don't come with mounts for bottle cages. And I want a purpose build single speed not a conversion.

It's fine for zipping in and out of traffic at super sonic speeds and having fun on the way to work, not lsowly cruising through fields while on holiday.

>>1853363
cinelli does make single speeds that come with bosses for bottle cages. you can ride fast on most bikes. having 1 brake and putting it on the back instead of the front is just dumb.
>>
>>1853350
Track bikes are less about material and construction and more about geometry but that's highly dependent on your frame of reference and preference. Aggressive track bikes have insane agility but you better be prepared for the compromises that entails, especially for street use. A track bike with good geometry is able to high side crash on demand, that's how quick they can turn.
>>1853366
You can ride fast on most bikes but track bikes have next level agility that only the most aggressive criterium style road bikes match. That makes filtering tight gaps and gridlock at dangerous speeds in the urban jungle a little too easy. I agree about the brakes though, for street use find a track bike that can take a front brake, it's not 2012 brakeless era anymore.

I don't mind the pedals at all. Though, I started BMX racing in the 80's where the pedals would rip the skin off your legs. Depending on the shoe you wear, the teeth nestle nicely into the tread of the shoe.

>>1853325
The front shock is by AMP. They also make an early 90's full suspension frame which is pretty kino. I may pick one up sometime but it's not on 'the list'. The 9900 is Trek's first go at carbon so the bike doesn't look like much but is quite special. Some I keep, some I flip.

>>1853502

I set my my road bike up on the old Zwifter today and did a FTP ramp test and holy shit boys, it was a very humbling experience, I’m now weak as shit. My FTP is now 150 and it used to be 220 which was also very modest. I’m planning on doing 1 long endurance session and 2 interval sessions a week on the Zwifter. I will do a zone 2 fun ride outside on Sundays mixed in with a few cheeky 5 second sprints. I’m going to buy a new back wheel so I don’t have to change the rear type every Sunday. I’m using power meter pedals so my watts will transfer in the real world.

Training inside is really convenient especially because it’s getting darker. It allows you to get a quick and efficient workout and you save time getting dressed and packing stuff.

I’m going to be consistent this time, I think having actual goals will help me with my mental health. I’m looking forward to becoming one speedy demon and being able to teach some noobs who try to challenge me a real lesson in speed..

Bought this a few weeks ago and went on my first proper ride with it today. Changed the tires, bar tape, brake cables+housing. Rides incredibly well and is very responsive (I'm used to a roadbike which is a bit too big for me). The only issue is a rattling noise coming from the right brake lever when riding on bumpy roads.

Missed your post but I gave it a 26" front end with some walmart fork from the junk pile.
Also took off the Ritchey bullmoose bars since this fork is some awkwardly small inner diameter for some reason.
And shortly after taking this photo I bent the top part of the seattube since I only had barely an inch of seatpost in there.
I'll maybe just hack the bent portion off and pull some trickery with hose clamps or just weld a pipe in for the seatpost

Because smart trainers are a lot better for structured work outs because of ERG mode and because it can simulate hills.

that type of bike should have a rack of some kind on it

>>1854042
personally i'd like a shorter stem and hooded brake levers to add a hand position, and make that and the drops more primary and the tops more cruisey. Your brake pads are upside down. That bike looks really cool btw. What's the finish? Have you cleared it/ oiled it or waxed it?
>>
>>1854042
oh your brake pads are upside down to get more reach i see

>>1854084
The most comfortable position for me is at the tops with a narrow grip. I find the hoods too wide, even with 40cm bars. The stem is long to compensate for the close grip, makes it less twitchy, especially at low speeds. The 120mm stem is actually pretty noticeable compared with the 100mm stem I had previously. It's also more aero being farther forward, moreso even than being lower.
The brake pads are upside down as >>1854090 explains. You can actually see a shiny strip between the tire and the rim, that's how much more clearance flipping them gives me. It would just touch the tire otherwise.
>>
>>1854084
The paint was in bad condition, so I stripped it and clear coated it. The clear coat has peeled off in places that get dirt (rear of the seat tube where water sprays, top tube where I rest my leg) so I need to rub some mineral oil, still haven't done it because it doesn't rust all that much.
>>
>>1854081
Thanks man. It's a joy to ride

The gearing is ... alright. It's got a 35 inch low gear with that freewheel, and I can can haul myself up most grades with a minimum of swearing, but something lower would certainly make my life easier.

I was sort of wanting to keep things kind of true to the age of the bike, so was thinking about putting a Stronglight 49D on it, with a 38t small ring instead of the 44t thing I have on there right now. I hadn't really considered a triple, mostly because of vanity, but a TA triple might look pretty good on there, if I could find one.

Should I convert my commuter from 460mm flat with inner bar ends to a riser bar or bullhorn bar setup? Trouble with riser is that it's hard to find narrow ones except of the Nitto one and I'm bike-curious about trying bar end shifters with the bullhorn setup.
>>
>>1854286
Nitto only comes with 25.4mm and I'd rather have my bike parts as interchangeable as possible. Then again so do many bullhorn bars.

>quack
>>
>>1854286
It's a fit question. You're adding a significant amount of reach to your primary position with bullhorns. Likely necessitating a shorter stem. It really depends on fit and sizing for the bike more than anything else. It's like converting to drops. Don't just do bullhorns or drops to stay on the tops.

Inner bar ends (bar ends generally) are different as they offer supplementary positions without controls and that aren't as ergonomic but more like hand rests.

>Trouble with riser is that it's hard to find narrow ones except of the Nitto one
The fuck? <500mm risers are everywhere. Tonnes of cheap ones. Plus you can just cut any bar down with a hacksaw. That's not sketchy at all infact mtbros have been doing it for ever and many long mtb bars come with lines to guide cutting them.
>>
In my second week of cycling I broke my speed record. 26.9mph
>>
>>1854372
Changing stems isn't a problem. I usually do calculations using geometry calculator anyways. (also considering the width of the handlebars (every 20mm extra width translate to roughly 5mm extra reach). The main reason for change is aesthetics. Current setup clashes visually and while solving that I also want to experiment a bit with the style of bike.

>>1855244
You're going to want a real mount or rack for that basket, preferably axle and brake mounted, especially the way you have your brake cable going through the basket. If it falls while holding something heavy, it's possible the basket will pull the brakes if the strings holding it fail.

The twine ends, cotton wrap, cork plugs, and butterfly bars though, no comment... You do you lel

First ride w/ a framebag for this one... but I was drunk and forgot the zipper flap. It's NDS, but I'll remake it at some point.
And my tail light strap broke. NiteRider doesn't sell replacements :(

It's the right size. Big-big and there's still a slight bend in the derailleur. I think he's done it for the pic, like the 1x12s that like to pose like that... but with an Altus.
