all I've ever worked on is mountain and road ish.

a good general maintenance book on mt. bikes is zinn and the art of mt. bike maintenance. not sure if there is a bmx version.

 

so whats not working with them? is it tension on the levers or the brakes rubbing on the tires?

 

honestly, everything. i just got so mad i ripped em off. when i buy new brakes, imma get a hold of you somehow and youre gonna have to help me.

IMO bullhorns are something you either love or hate. Not something you get into because all the cool kids are doing it. It's a different ride and makes stopping a whole new ball game... especially if you're hitting the hand brakes. If you have access to a pair of bullhorns, that you can borrow... give a try and see how you like 'em first. At least before you go and drop $50 on a pair. I prefer Nitto Keirin track bars over bullhorns. A more comfortable ride. Though again... it's just my opinion and what works for me.

 

Profile makes a decent bullhorn bar... I think it's called the Airwing and it's about $40 or so. Syntace makes a similar bar for about $50 or you can get crazy and go with the new Visiontech bar for $70... I think. Maybe $80. But trick as far as bullhorn bars go. And I'm pretty sure Nitto makes a bullhorn bar for about $50 too.

 

I'm actually in the market for a new fixed bike so I'm searchin' around for a good... nah, skip that... great deal. If anyone hears of one, let a brotha know.

 

Yeah, I had a pair of syntace bullhorns on my bike for a while... then I switched to track bars and liked the feel better

Richard Virenque retired from cycling today. It'll be weird not to see him in the mountains during the TDF.

 

Also, Tyler's B test on his blood sample from Athens came back as non conclusive. So the IOC had to drop it's charges against Tyler. The A test still stands though. And his reputation is still on the line. I'm sure he didn't dope it up but this has really hurt him as a professional.

 

Looks like Heras is set to win a third Vuelta as well. Watching (reading is more like it) the race on Eurosport.com. Nothing but hills today...

 

Start winter training in a few weeks. It'll be nice to get back on the bike. Haven't even touched mine forever.

 

Keep us updated on Cross season Steve and Cinnamon! Cinn... you still coming out to Portland at the end of the year?

In other cycling news...apparently Lance has not received his 5 million dollar bonus for winning his sixth tour. The company wants to see his medical records to prove he wasn't doping.

Right now I have a 20" Diamondback Nitrus, it's got a smaller back TIRE (not rim) and it accelerates hella fast. I love that bike. I would cry if it got stolen.

 

I used to have an older Schwinn Predator, white, with black mags, I also loved that bike to death, but of course I was 10 and I thought it would be cool to take it apart and spray paint the frame black, I never got around to it... My dad was throwing it away one day and he's like you sure you don't wanna keep it? And I said yeah I threw out the mags with it too I feel so dumb now...

for riding track, i feel like its easier to skid if you have bullhorns. i messengered on them for a minute and liked the way they rode, but drops look just so damn classy. i dont think id ever go back.

...instead of curving down, around and back, bullhorn bars curve up and then stop short...so they look like a bull's horns...the manufactured ones usually have a slight bend in them for your hand to fit...but you can make ghetto bullhorns by just cutting a standard bar and flipping it upside down...i know people that love them and people that hate them...

Yep. Guys who wear spandex and shave their legs. It's the hottest trend right now. Next thing you know, bicycles will be on tv... in commercials and shit. Kids will be doing it. Celebrities will be riding around on bikes. That shit will be played out at that point. Man... I hope riding bikes doesn't catch on.

 

 

 

 

If you're looking for the hipster thread... try Metal Heads. I'm sure there's a thread in there somewhere that talks about using only stock caps...

some pretty sick riding this weekend. saturday went and rode these fullpipes at this junkyard..chased out by dogs. headed up to this bigass bank to wallride tore that shit up for a bit. then i found this building that had the foundation dug out around it and the little bit of dirt that was remaining almost built transition up to the wall..so after a few minutes of handy shovel/shoe work i built a perfect transition to the wall. needless to say i was blastin wallrides outta that thing so high, like 12 or 13 feet up it was sick..if its still there ill try and get some pics. sunday returned to the fullpipes and rode them for a while..didnt get kicked out, just tired. retired home and worked on the bike, nut and bolted everything to ensure it would ready for the next ride with no work.
