i got a mountain bike with front shock absorbers that broke, but somehow they work better now, only one of the two front ones work. i bought cheap ass pegs in a market here (for those of you that dont know, i live in nicaragua where people ride their bikes and give 3 or 4 friends a ride to and from work everyday). i gots a bugle with one of those black sqeezie things to make lotsa noize and a can compartment http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//wink.gif'>.

this is probably a stupid question but what's the advantage to taking off your brakes besides looking hardcore?

i just scored a khs aero track and a 1984 raliegh red and chrome that is so sweet for 310 dollars as a package mmm... so good.

as for track bike having no brakes... it stops better in the rain and snow. and in boston god knows what youll run into.

 

hesh that twisted lace up is fucking sick do it your self or shop tech? as for strength how is it. i gotta lear how to build wheels

hey hesh......nice braided spokes there. i'm totally guessing that you are a bike messenger? i feel ya though, my boyfriend risks his life everyday being one too. ha! nice ass there buddy boy. funny ass picture though. and by the way, my boyfriend believes, by lookin at the flick, that you are running a 3 to 1 ratio. that's the real man, knee breaker ratio. yeaaaaa baby. makes your knees grind in the morning, love to hear that noise. philly eh, that's it, we're staying with you when we go out there. oh, and loosing a chain at an intersection....he feels your pain. it's hardcore.....he was sprinting through the broadway tunnel here in sf, and his chain popped out in the at the end of the tunnel. and then he had a good 50 feet to stop before traffic. nothing like jamming your foot in a rear triangle doing like 35 miles per hour. now that's hard core http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//eek.gif'>

but i really like that bike. nothing like a fixie.

oh DIBS, yea no prob. lemme know if you need one. but you're still in oak town right? http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//smile.gif'>

the twist lace adds strength verticly on the wheel. the down side is the wheel isn't as strong laterally. but it'll keep the wheel in true longer. (just hope i never snap a spoke or i have a large headache.) fuck building fancy wheels. i don't havre the $$ for a truing stand or the patience. its good to do once in your life though. Sadly i cannot tke credit for my wheels. The guy i bought them from worked in a shop and did em up. Apparently he has patience. DEVILUSH- have you seen guys w/ their wheels like mine out there on the left coast? I guy i work w/ is from portland and he said alot of guys have set ups like mine. I'm the wierdo around town here. BTW you guys are welcome to stay anytime......

yup i've seen it out here. some guys are pretty hard core when it comes to bikes and messengering. the whole purpose of a braided spoke is to strengthen your wheels. so it's harder to fold them. but the trend around here seems to be track bikes. i see a lot of yuppie and dot commers sporting them now. and it kinda sucks that it had to come to that ya know? but your bike is pretty sick. dammit, i don't have a scanner, i'd scan the flicks of the bikes. dammit. but yea, a lot of guys have set ups like that. lately i've seen a lot of pursuit frames as well. now those are mad crazy.

to kid lugz...for the advantage....well, other than looking hard core, it's almost like a sport too. to see who can do it or not. especially to strengthen your legs. and if you like speed, that's a plus also.

i was thinking about being a bike messenger in the fall, but i don't think i can take the crap my boyfriend takes everyday. i told him to be safe today. homeboy gets agro. you dunno what he does with that kryptonite lock.

alright, i need some advice from you bike lovers here. i plan on buying a new bike in the next couple of weeks. i'm torn between buying a mountain bike or a track bike. i've ridden mountain bikes all my life(recreationally) but recently tried a friends track bike and i really liked it. is there any advice you guys could give me in regards to which bike i should buy?

 

i mainly ride in the city.

bicicletas son muy bueno...

 

I looked at a nice full suspension Giant w/ a downhill rig the other day, Very pleasant, I wasn't in the position to buy, however, so I didn't get supersonic but still, it was sweet...

 

my last bike was a 92 Giant Rincon, basically a hybrid, but tough as nails on the trails.. finally I ragged it jumping speed bumps at my old Apt... bent the bars, the forks, and the frame... STILL! I got thumbs up on my whip from the UPS guy, I was blasting!

if you ride in the city, your best bet is a single speed, which doesnt necessarily mean a track bike, track bike refer to a certain geometry on the frame, yet you can easily build a single speed, and go fixed (probably what you mean by track). fixed means one gear, the back is locked, so each pedal forward is one forward and each one back is one back, stopping is accomplished (by those without brakes) by either leg locking and skipping the back wheel to a stop or slowing down your pedal strokes, a front brake is a decent idea, because if your chain pops off you have no stopping power other then to beat feet if this appeals to you then go fixed, if not stick with single speed they are just as light *except maybe brakes* and just as simple. one of the main reasons for me riding a fixed set is the lack of parts it is simple you and the bike nothing wierd to go wrong.

but single speed is great for short commutes and you dont have to worry about that much either. brakes just dont stop as well in the rain or snow *another fixie plus*

as for mountain bikes they are the ugliest things in the world, more like a bear then a lady, a good road frame can be sexy as hell. take the hot pink casati hand welded i saw the other day i was ready to save all my money just for a custom one, never felt that way about an ugly ass full suspension monster.

 

just remember gears are for queers.

if you get anything similar to a mtn bike make it a single speed cyclocross they look cuter.

 

hesh and devil thanks, i am in boston and havent seen many twisted spokes. it looked real pretty like and i new it was a rigidity issue. and i dont know wheel building or even where to start i want to learn straight over under tho first.

Quizas no es buena idea contestar en espanol...

Willy... actually, the downhill rig I mentioned is optimum, only the largest sprocket in the front (big chain group), and 6 gears in the back, that way you can get a little easement on uphills... and front brakes are an excellent idea, you want to do most of your braking up front, as it stops quicker and helps maintain control and stability, especially through corners, if there is loose gravel in the turn... back brakes are pretty much there to burn off speed and assist the front brakes...

i think i'm gonna have to agree with boxcar willy. um....yea he pretty much said everything. just have fun, that's all it is. be careful though. i'm not a fast learner when it comes to bikes, but it took some time. browse around to. you have to find the perfect bike that is right for you, size and what kinda things that you are going to do with it. don't just drop like $800 on a new track frame. and he is right about the things that you can do with a track frame. start with a single speed. because whenever you are ready, you can always change it into a fixed gear. but again, when you are ready. and it is always good to have a front brake. definitly, you don't want to stop by putting your foot in the rear triangle. it isn't pretty. but also go to someone who knows what they are talking about. those guys (meaning bike shop workers) can get greedy with their commission. they'll rob you blind. the best starter bike is a BIANCHI PISTA, i think so. it's pretty cheap, considering where you go to. and it looks like that you will be riding in the city, so commuting with this bike is good. it's a track bike with a brake drill hole. yuck, anything with suspensions is fugly. yea, don't go with mountain bikes. no one will jock you (kidding). and it is ugly. no doubt.

boxcar...wow boston. yay, me and my boyfriend have to make a trip over to the east coast.

what do you guys think about pursuit frames?

willy,

are you a messenger in beantown? do the guys there have to register w/ the city? i heard some noise about that a while ago, never heard a story though....annnnnnnnnnd the pista is nice for a first bike, almost too nice. Fuji has one for $400 ready to go, w/ brakes. it isn't half as nice as the pista but its half the price and it does have a more relaxed geometry. Surly has a few really nice setups to.
