So I have a question for you Clone...

 

Back in the early 80's when I was freestylin' and riding ramps (Think RL Osborne and Mike Buff, Mike Dominguez) we rode with our seats set normally. A little lower than riding height but not that much. Basically, just enough to get the bars pass the nose of the seat without it hitting.

 

Now, when I look at bikes today... the seat is super low and the nose is turned wayyyy up. Why? Is there a reason? I've always been curious but never bothered to ask anyone.

usually, the nose of the seat is turned up so you can pinch it with your knees. its for tricks where your letting go of the bars (barspins, no handers etc) or even when youre just jumping and want to keep your bike straight. personally i dont keep it turned way up, just enough so i can grab it with my legs.

My cranks my celeste pista is broken. I never had money to fix em till now (got a new job). My LBS is selling a GT GTB, what do you guys think about that bike? Also, what do you think about a CUERVO bike? My LBS is the CUERVO dealer.. personally i've never heard of it but, i haven't been hanging out with the fixed gear crowd for a minute now.

Never heard of the Cuervo before. Looked online but could only find weird lookig MTB's. The GT GTB bike is pretty good as far as a track bike goes. I would put them just a tad bit higher than the Bianchi Pista. The GT seems to be better made and more responsive. Especially on the track. At least from what I remember of the few rides I had on them.

 

Been doing lots of riding. Nothing major but still getting in a lot of hours so early in the off season. Cross racing here in town has been huge. Record numbers of people racing and spectating. I think the Nationals are going to be phenominal this year. Different course but in the same area as last year. I hope for the racers it won't be the slop it was last year. That crap was ugly...

 

You still coming out Cinn?

You must take into account a few things.

Where are you riding? Hills or flat or a little of each.

Do you have a brake?

Do you ride alot?(leg strength, how's yours?)

If you are riding a road bike, what is your most comfortable gear?

 

All this is important for getting it right and saving your knees a

little "discomfort".

In my experience I used to ride a 48 - 19. All day in traffic in Boston.

A larger cog in the rear engages more chain and teeth for more

control and prolonged cog tooth life. In comparison to a 16 T or smaller.

48 - 16 is a steep gear if you have a 16 I would suggest starting at 42

and work your way up.

Fill out the questionaire and I can help further.
