For the last three years I've been designing custom paint options for SAGE Titanium customers. Definitely fun to work with customers to come up with something they love and are excited to ride. Here's

Lap around the lake today

I made this

I cosign that count...i have had an injury for the last 4 months..just started riding again.

 

The incline im having trouble with is not because of the grade but the distance...id say its about a mile climb.

Sucks because its the only way home from the train station. If anyone is local its hillsdale boulevard from el camino real all the way up to 92 .... san mateo, ca

 

I was thinking that a triple would require a new bracket and a cassette...oh well, ill make a trip to my local bike shop and see what the options are.

Ralphy... you can put a smaller chain ring on the inside, maybe a 38 tooth, and then change out your rear cassette to 12-29. Doesn't sound like much of a change but trust me... it'll make a difference.

 

Rubbish... the knee is still wonky. So bummed. All the work over the winter, all the money spent... I'm just bummed. I feel like even if things come together in a month it'll take me two or three months to get back to where I was with Banana Belt 1 when I got 6th. And by then the road season will be over. I guess I can look forward to Cyclocross...

Ah Joker, you'll be good... our season is so long that you'll be strong during some point of it. Full summer of crits and then a full autumn of cyclocross... pick your poison and I'm sure you'll be stomping in due time. The benefits of long base mileage are slow to come on, but slow to wear away as well.

 

Besides, everyone knows of the racers who get a bad injury and then come back with more vengeance then they had pre-injury. I've got a handful of friends like that, including one guy who's had a string of bad luck every season and recently broke his vertebrae at a pro/1 race in Trinidad... I think the mental drive to win gets a lot stronger after you go down and get over the initial hump of anxiety and apathy.

My friends dad was about to throw away this vintage peugeot that had been sitting in his garage for years. Cosmetically it is almost perfect. He said I could have it for free if I come take it off his hands, so I did. Stripped it down this weekend and turned it into this. Wish I had some before pictures:

My first single speed, as I have always rode with gears, and I have to admit I'm loving it so far.

 

 

Nice, One of my bikes is a Peugeot Iseran. Similar story, except got it at a garage sale for $15 and converted it. Peugeot had some tough graphics.

 

Not my bike, but same frame

 

 

 

 

Anyone going to the bike film fest? I may be late on convo, but it's in my city next week. Last year was a blast. http://www.bicyclefilmfestival.com/

I'm hoping you're right, Rubbish!! I'm definitely angry about this injury and turning that into some results later on would be nice.

 

Watching the Giro right now. I'm really hoping that Arashiro can pull off a stage win... that would be wicked.

question. just looking for some feedback i guess. i bought this old fuji espree(85 i think) the other day for damn cheap and im wondering what i should do with it. all it needs is tires/tubes and a new chain. its pretty much perfect minus a few surface rust spots that are not a problem and being really dirty from sitting in a garage for 10 years. im either going to just buy those few things and keep it as is OR make it into a fixed gear. which will cost a lot more but money isnt an issue here so nevrmind that.. i dont know. no ones really gonna make the decision for me im just curious to see what some of you might think.

yup yup.

Buy tires and tubes and a chain. Its cheaper then converting to fixed, you will need a new hub and lockring/sprocket which will cost a good sum of money.

 

Buy cheap now, save and buy expensive later. As so far as rust you can just strip and repaint to keep it from spreading. Or use lemon juice and a green scrub pad to get it off, or sometimes some tinfoil works.
