Alright, suckers. Every time you see "between" on a transportation page on Wikipedia, replace it with "betwixt". That should keep us all busy for a while.

Anybody know what the headtube length is on these bad boys? http://www.amazon.com/Alloy-Track-Fixie-Frame-Matte/dp/B00HZ9PRH0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1402038509&sr=8-2&keywords=track+fixie+frame Theyre obviously fairly cheap so I presume theyve been used by a fair number of people, but given the lack of a brand I cant find reviews so. Egh. Anything else I should know about these frames if anyone has used one? I expect itll be heavier than more expensive shit, sure. But. Dgaf. Long as it doesnt crack if you look at it wrong, threads are good, seatpost size is accurate, rear spacing is accurate, etc., etc.

Minneapolis is the best city on Earth for urban cycling. Prove me wrong. Protip: You can't. This includes you, Portlandfags.

Hey /n/, been lurking for a bit and I had some questions. I've been biking everywhere for about 3 years on my road bike (Pic Related) and it's starting to get worn down. I've tuned it up regularly and taken it to the shop as well, but I was wondering is there any one thing that working on made a huge difference in your ride? Or is it just a little of everything? Also any suggestions on a nice touring bike for roughly $1000?

I've got this for sale for £200. Do you think this is steep, or worth it? Specs are as follows -- -Reynolds 531 Claud Butler frame -Gerry Burgess (GB) Spearpoint ~70mm stem -Stratalite South of France drop bars (worth easily £50 on ebay any day of the week) -Campagnolo Chorus 172.5mm cranks with Campag 53T ring -Sakae Ringyo (SR) SP100 quill pedals. -Rear wheel Mavic 700c CXP22 rim with Tifosi track hub with sealed bearings + 16T track sprocket -Front wheel Rigida 700c with Maillard hub (I've got a front CXP22 that needs sorted out --busted spoke and truing needed -- can have a look and replace the Rigida wheel for an added £10) -Schwalbe Lugano tyres with decent life left in them -ITM 27.2mm traditional seat post with guts -Charge Bucket saddle -Modolo Flash brake levers -Weinmann 730 brake calipers

Hi /n/. I want some advice from you. My bike was stolen and I'm looking for a new one. I want to buy a road bike but I don't have the money right now and I really want to ride a bike. So I saw an offer for the one on the pic. The frame is Sprick. It has Weinmann front brake and another Weinmann back brake comes with it. There are road handlebars coming with it too. The tires are Rubena busseto. What do you think? The price is really OK, it is 1/3 of my last bike which was an aluminium rigid MB with Shimano Tourney commands. It was great but I just don't want to buy the same.

Help me find a bike!

Hey /n/, I was hoping I could get some help finding a used road bike in Norfolk, VA. norfolk.craigslist.org is my local site I'm 6' (183 cm) with a 35" (89 cm) inseam. Not looking to break to bank, as this bike will be kept very close to the ocean and I don't know know how long anything out here would hold up before falling victim to rust.

BIKE QUESTIONS GENERAL

309 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Put your repair questions, iz-dis-bike-gud questions and other general advice questions here. Here's mine: Has anyone used Slime inner tubes before? Got a 19-25c one for my road bike and I'm finding when I start pumping it up, there are regions of the tyre that are less inflated than others. Certain spots where I can push down the tyre, as though air can't get to that region, or there is less tube material or something. Anyone else seen this before?

As someone who knows nothing about bikes and is looking to get into them, is there a decent source to look into and learn some things? Just browsing this board and it seems like there's a lot that goes into it and I'd like to try and learn some stuff Sorry if this is a dumb question

Should I buy it?

http://gulfport.craigslist.org/bik/4530693531.html It's actually a 2002, but whatever. Everything looks good except for some surface corrosion on the rear derailleur. Is 275 a reasonable offer considering the older date and possible damage?
