Mar 29, 2010 @ 22:21
all my friends have fixies down here in Irvine, which seems pretty out of place. They are nice bikes, but i tried ridin em and for some reason, I just cant get use to em. Almost ate shit once tryin to stop...

But i got my baby here though tongueface No one can touch me, 10 speeds of pure fun.

interesting... someone that doesn't have a track bike but owns a bianchi. I'm digging the celeste saddle.
Mar 31, 2010 @ 22:21
^ that actually came stock with the bike along with the celeste grip tape, but i had to switch to black since they got dirty quick.

Arione? yummy.
Though why the platforms, get some beaters or other clipins!

yea, the Fi'zik's are real nice. And i have the platforms cuz im too lazy to switch shoes because i use the bike to get to class everyday. I do have a pair of VP pedals for weekend rides though, but they are just entry level ones.

no one interested in road bikes or any other types?


I own a '86 road bike which I converted to single speed, but I plan to convert back into a 10 speed or just buy a new road bike because I don't like the feel of the single speed. I also own a purple low rider, which I plan to sell. It was formerly a girl's low rider bike with several "star" stickers on it, but I just removed them all. Now, it is just a plain purple low rider, which I ride sometimes.

man, before you drop any money, you should definitely try riding one first. Your previous post made it sound like you're just gettin into fixies. They're really not for everyone.

i been had rode my friend's. but his is expensive smh

Andy.Get the Windsor Hour or you can be lucky and find a great bike on OC Craigslist. I'm constantly looking. Maybe I can help you out. What's your budget?
Apr 06, 2010 @ 17:03
like around 300-400ish. unless you can find a steal for a real nice one

you can get a new fuji track for that much.

That's a good looking Bianchi a page back. I took my friend's road bike (platforms too) for a spin the other day, lost control while coasting (lapse of judgment...forgot about using the brakes to control speed) and bit it. Tore up his bartape and now he's pissed. I guess I take the precision control of fixed for granted!
Apr 07, 2010 @ 17:05
the tape would be the least of my worries if someone took my bike and ate shit
Apr 08, 2010 @ 17:35
I don't know how someone forgot how brakes work.

Does anyone know where I can bike up a Leader 725TR in white 53 or 55cm? Everywhere is fucking sold out...
Apr 09, 2010 @ 10:18
did you not try ebay or the leader bike store? its not any cheaper to buy a leader frameset. It doesn't include a headset or fork. You can buy a lot better for the money.

yeah a 725tr frameset (frame fork hs) is around 500. for that much you could get a used ftp, which i wish i had done.

for the record, I own a 725tr

Nope it fits me like that. For some reason people think that stems should be level or angled down b/c it looks better that way. The idea is your back is supposed to be flat and parallel to the ground.
