Hi /n/! Grabbed this frame to a masi speciale fixed ltd for a nice price of $110. Looking to build a nice solid track bike, nothing flashy or hypebeast like 50% of most people who ride fixies. My only other bike at the moment is a cannondale caad8, and I feel like it's not being used like it should be as a daily driver commuter. So what I'm asking you is to suggest parts for me. The owner isn't including a fork, so keep that in mind. I don't have anything but the frame. Things i want 1. non flashy color scheme- steel, black, grey 2. durable 3. price friendly as possible, I have 350-400 to spend.

LBS or Jenson?

Hey /n/. I have a fucked up rim, and am going to have to either attempt to get it fixed (it's pretty boned) and just go to my lbs. Or cut the crap and pick something up off Jenson. I ride a 10-speed Centurion, mostly as a commuter, but I do go on 60k's from time to time. tl;dr >busted rim >27 1/14 Rigida. >LBS or Jenson.

Sup /n/ So I ride a fixed gear, and yesterday I started hearing a strange hissing sound. It's an occasional hissing sound that seems to be coming from the chain or the rear hub, I can't really tell. I cleaned my chain, loosened, tightened the chain again, and the sound persists. Should I just take the hub and grease it up? I don't know what is causing this sound and it's starting to bug me... Could it be from the chain? Did I not clean it thoroughly enough? Thanks for the help pic unrelated, I hate seat locks.

Welp, it looks like /n/ has been taken over by bikes again. So lets have a thread about unconventional transportation. Surely /n/ remembers Skytran? Pic related. I literally cannot think of a more awesome or more practical. >2 seat pods can hold two passengers weighing 250lbs each >can travel in excess of 100mph using the energy equivalent of two electric hairdryers >energy net neutral (almost) with overhead solar panels >no traffic jams or congestion >cheaper to build per mile than any light rail system >more efficient than rail, bus, and even automobile travel

I'm thinking of buying this bicycle as my first newer road bike. I wanted to know if you chaps thought it a good value? I am in a bit of a toss up between it and a brand new retail Allez Comp Apex. I will be pulling the trigger here soon and any words of advice are welcome BMC SL01 Ultegra build http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMC-SL01-with-Ultegra-XL-58-5-/111022582227?pt=Road_Bikes&hash=item19d97629d3 Specialized Allez Comp Apex http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bikes/road/allez/allezcompapexmidcompact

I want to get my first road bike. should I get flat bar or drop bar? I want to go as fast as possible. I also want: to be able to do agile and dexterous maneuvers (I do lots of those with my current hybrid flat bar) to go off road in non-technical and light trails to ride my first century when its time Up until now I ride primarily in the city, so there is a lot of stop and go, lots of frequent braking and I dont think riding in the hoods is what you get drop bars for so, flat bar road bike or drop bars?

For a daily ride to and from work, should I use a backpack, messenger bag, or a few racks and bags on my bike? Thinking of a seat rack, a triangle bag for just under the saddle, and possibly one of those double sided bags that go over the top tube just behind the stem. I don't want to overload or anything, just enough space for some shoes, drinks, a snack or two, and the ability to stuff half a subway sandwich in a bag if I decide to eat there on the way. Backpack sounds good, as it is on me and not directly weighing my bike down, and has lots of space, and won't be swinging around too much. Messenger bag sounds okay, the thought of a bag swinging around the whole time would probably drive me nuts, but the ability to reach in on the go and all that seem pretty nice. Not sure if I could sling it over my back and it would stay there or not. Any input from people who have a few bags/racks/backpacks etc and know from experience what the best route to go would be please fill me in thanks.

Riding Technique

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: silk path 500.jpg]
(accidentally posted this in >>454810 don't hurt me pls) Pre-Ramble: Hello /n/, i used to bike as a child, stopped through my schooling years, but now I'm taking it up again as: a) A less joint-destroying replacement for long distance running (i enjoy that shit) b) Travel efficiency - why use a car to go <10km when you can ride? I've purchased a used 2003 Cannondale Silk Path 500 [Hybrid, 24 speed, Front suspension w/ lock] for $200 and now all I need to do is perfect my riding technique. Questions: -What cadence (pedal rpm) should I aim for? -When's the best time to change gears? -How high should my seat be? (i.e. fully straight leg or slightly bent [i've heard different things from different people]) -Should I bother with straps or clips or other foot-pedal fasteners? If so, where can I get the appropriate equipment? -Should I lock the front suspension while on road to waste less energy? -If I'm running ~25-30km over 2 hours, how far should I aim to ride over 2 hours? -How do i not get run over while on the road in twilight/night periods? -How do i not get run over while in heavy traffic? -When do you stand up on a bike? -Any other protipz?

Cyclocross or road bike?

I currently ride a 24 speed commuter bike which was sold as a flat bar road bike although it is basically a mountain bike with skinny wheels/tyres I am getting better at riding and think it may be time to start thinking about getting something a bit faster. The reason I didn't get a proper flat bar road bike is because I wasn't confident in my riding ability, I tend to naturally ride a bit rough. I have been told a cyclocross bike may be a good option for me, I am wondering what the main differences are and whether I should look at cyclocross bikes or just go fo a road bike. I never tried drop bars but I think I can probably get the hang of them.

First visit to this board and the entire first page is bikes. Why don't you just have one sticky bike thread. Discuss other types of transportation in this thread.

So my brakes lost a bit of power and started squeaking, so I checked the pads and they were completely worn out, so I've just replaced them, but the squeak is still there.. It's only really in the back break whereas before I changed them, both were squeaking. What's going on?

Been looking at a few different helmets to replace my aging shitty one I got a few years back and I've found arguments for an against. I never even knew helmets were regarded as a bad thing!? Pros I've found > They stop your skull from being the only thing between you and the road > Aerodynamics (not as important for non- competition cyclists) Cons > Look stupid sometimes > "Uncool" apparently > Retains heat etc. Personally, I always wear a helmet when out doing cardio training at night. I get up to about 30 mph at times and I cycle in traffic, so I think I'm justified in needing one although if I'm riding to the store I'd probably not wear one. /n/'s opinion on cycle helmets?

What do you think about the subway system where you live? Pic related it's Stockholm's subway, very clean and quiet. I give it an 8/10.

Hello /n/, I found this Bianchi for sale, but I can't tell if it's the right size frame for me.. I need a 55cm or 56cm as I am 5'10 and the owner said it's either a 56cm or 58cm(he doesn't know for sure).. Could /n/ possibly judge the size for me please?

>"You claim that it is environmentally friendly to ride a bike. But if I am not mistaken, a cyclist has an increased heart rate and respiration. That means that the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider. Since CO2 is deemed to be a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride." Ed Orcutt, Washington House of Representatives

Hey /n/ have you ever worked in a bike shop? I just got an interview for a corporate shop that sells solely specialized. What are your experiences/etc? Did you enjoy working in a bike shop?
