Because you're what... 24? 25? and you fuck/have relationships with 17 year olds?

that's why. + your taste in bikes is terrible.

What the fuck does that have to do with anything? Are we in a relationship thread? No. We're in a bike thread. Fuck outta here.

Thinking about building a new back wheel. If you guys could have ANY hub/rim combo, what would it be?

I know plenty of people who are willing to take my current White Industries/H+Son EERO build off my hands. I want something lighter. I ride on the street a lot, so it would have to be fairly strong. The wheel I have now is probably overkill for the kind of riding I do.

I've heard good things about kinlin XR-300s, or you could try Velocity Fusions, aeroheads, A23s, or even deep v's(they could still be fairly light depending on how you build them.

As for hubs, I have no problems with my formulas.

May 29, 2012 @ 22:47
you may check out hubs from the hub store for some good cheap hubs.

My starter project.
Needs so much work, haha but it gets me around esp @ critical mass.


Why do you have a single bar end shifter on your handlebars?

I originally had a 3-spd fixed stumey archer hub, recently took it off but the shifter is stuck on the bars.

^lol

Just bought myself a Leader with matching carbon forks and a set of formula hubs. So cut waiting for it to get here.
Jun 02, 2012 @ 15:13
hmm, i wanna run a suicide brake like that.

guess ill ride this while the 3rensho is being built smokeyface


been riding fixed a lot the past couple weeks. i wanna ride a century [fixed] with a couple friends. most I've done before is 50/55 miles. anybody have any tips for my first time?

Do a metric century, it's only 60 miles but still sounds cool. smokeyface

but make sure you have water, proper cycling shorts, and a shitload of hand positions, like drops+hoods or maybe bullhorns, no track drops/risers, riding clipless is a plus since clips+straps can get kinda uncomfortable. Distance riding is all about staying comfortable, don't think you're doing yourself a favor by choosing a flat route, climbing and whatnot lets you move your back around for a second, instead of keeping that same angle for 100 miles.
and of course, have fun smokeyface

The 722ts (not the heritage ones) and kagero are pretty nice.

Not to sound like a complete noob but what's the hate on Leader frames? I notice it on a bunch of different forums but never hear why
