i just looked up a few fork weights. (can't find any fox fork weights tho)

the lefty saves between 200 and 300 grams for their very high end.

they use a shitload of carbon to attain that weight.

 

seems like a novelty. a half pound is a big deal on a race bike, but the years of r&d on that and their weight solution is carbon?? i still don't get it.

I finally got my bike through the bike to work scheme, ended up opting for a MTB as more practical for my needs and can always get a road bike later.

 

I managed to get this

It was 55 and sunny yesterday when I rode... which to us up in OR is pretty amazing.

 

Been training with the broken hand. Put in 3.5hr outside yesterday and 3hr. the day before on the trainer. Not too bad with the cast and all, though riding in the drops is impossible and shifting the FD hurts a shit ton. Whatever. Just gotta repeat HTFU all day cuz bike training/racing isn't supposed to be easy.

 

Also, everyone who's ever shaved their legs or put on lycra should take a few minutes to read this: http://www.bigringriding.com/post/741407744/i-didnt-want-to-abandon-the-giro-in-the-year-of-my-retir

Jesus Christ after not cycling for about a decade this past week has been a shock to the system, I only commute maybe 4 miles to work but it is so hilly my legs feel like jelly, definitely going to have to get some good riding done when I get time off work.

It is below freezing here, even with full finger gloves I can't feel my fingers when I get to work, also need to get a new saddle, I read the boardman saddle was uncomfortable but that's an understatement.

I'm in Minneapolis, every ride whether for fun, for errands, for work or school is nothing short of epic.

damn. joker now a newbie? hahahaha

 

 

rubbish i hope your hand is better.. or as close as it can be to being normal.

 

riding in snow is ok if it isn't too deep, i totally agree

i don't mind slush that much either.

indeed, it's the ice sheets/refrozen shit that gets you.. or, me.

 

 

i've seen snow bikes, never ridden one though

Daniel... that's a difficult question to answer, which is why no one has jumped to give you one.

 

How much are you looking to spend? Style you're interested in?

 

yeah i figured it was pretty broad but i decided to give it a go.

spending wise, i'll pay what i need to but the cheaper (still functional) the better..looking 300 tops?

i really dig single speeds.

im not looking for universal truths here, just some recommendations from people who know more about it than me.

Galaxy 2 does not ring a bell to me, I am guessing that you already tried google. I want to say that Schwinn made a galaxy?

 

You could try posting a picture of it on this forum

There was a trend for number of years where shops would make up their own brand name, buy bikes and put their brand on the bike leading to a large number of relative unknowns out there.
