Sorry to bump an old thread... but does anyone have anything bad/good to say about the Redline 925? Specifically the 2011 model.

Dudes selling it on craigslist, without the fenders, but with an extra pair of Gatorskins for 300.

finally unemployed; got a job at a shop. Not too much wrenching experience, but I speak spanish, which is gold where I am.

Now I'll be able to look at the QBP catalog and look at all the stuff I still can't afford from the perspective of a shop employee.

Woo.

I've heard good things about their singlespeed mountainbikes, just didn't know if they put the same quality into their other lines.

Think I'm gonna snatch it up.

Not sure exactly why hes selling it for so cheap, I assume hes moving. He sounded like he knew what he was talking about when it came to bikes in email so I doubt he was some crackhead who nabbed it.

So a couple questions:

 

1. Do any of you actually register your bike with the national bike registry? and if so have you or anyone you know had success with it in case of a stolen bike? i've never even heard a second or third hand success story about it. but i feel like now that i'm back in a college town i should probably do more just in case.

 

2. So i recently picked up a raleigh furley to use as my town bike. I've been riding with my premium platforms but i want to get into something a little more efficient w/o upgrading to clipless, because this is going to be my bar bike and i don't want to wear my tap shoes while drinking.

 

i've never ridden with toe straps but it seems like thats what i'm looking for--any advice on pedals/straps/toe clips as far as what sucks, whats good, and a decent/affordable source. I don't want to pay more than $75, less is better.

The only strap / cage kind of thing I ever used were these.

They were very good! Check out this link, there's a variety of others of that kind.

Depending on your bike these look rather cool, and you can adjust them to perfectly fit your shoes / sneakers.

Ps: Choose some 'tough' ones, as they're going to be dragged on the street often

(when you just ride around one block and are too lazy to step in, and when you're just pushing the bike somewhere;

the weight usually turns the pedal around, with the strap down to the ground).

There's a whole slew of different versions and brands that make those things, I had a set of hold fast's on some bmx platform pedals that i forgot the name of that worked well. The big plus with those is it's a lot easier/quicker to adjust to different shoes.

 

If you're going for a more "traditional" look, this is the way to go:

Couldn't find a picture of the black ones.

Make sure they are double strapped, you want two straps. More stability in the cage. Good thing about these is they are steel, so when they get bent (which will happen eventually, promise) you can just bend them back.

As for straps, people say leather straps are more comfortable, but I always just used nylon straps.

great pedal for the price.. I know citygrounds has a package deal for all-city track pedals with toe clips and straps.. worth looking at if you need everything.

Brewster, the Bianchi looks great... love those Paul cranks. That brooks saddle looks a little silly on there though, IMO. I'd put something a little "racier" on there if that were my bike, fizik antares or something. But that's splitting hairs, nice ride.

 

No snow here in MA yet. Rode the fixed gear 125 miles on Tuesday and looking for another century tomorrow. Getting the miles in while I can... the only way to stay in shape for next spring is to not let myself get out of shape in the first place.

Here's my current setup. Raleigh one way frame(2008), phil wood/open pro wheelset, sugino 75 bb and cranks, brooks saddle and tape, 700x25 gatorskins, fyxation bars, thomson elite seatpost, garmin edge 500, occasionally a rack, and currently fenders for the winter.

This is my commuter/touring/sport ride which I use for everything. I did a single day double century on this bike this summer.

word.

 

thanks all. i think i've got an idea of what i'm looking for now.

 

These are good, but take a little getting used to-

I rode platforms with no clips for the past year, and didn't have too many problems....the only time it got hairy was when I was wearing worn-out shoes in the rain, which sucks no matter what. Even though I finally put clips and straps on a month ago, I only use them when I'm climbing or in heavy traffic.

yeah I looked at a few different saddles, but since this is my everyday bike I wanted more comfort.

 

originally was going with SRAM Omniums but they wouldnt fit. Im happy with Pauls and the phil wood BB though.

Don't come on here very often anymore... hope all are well and getting plenty of riding in.

 

I was recently hit by a car, fucked me up real good. If you've ever had broken ribs, you know what I'm talking about. The other pain is nothing in comparison.

 

Just wanted to reach out and say be safe out there...

..I hear ya.

Bruised mine this year. Shit takes a while..

 

..I'd recommend seeing an osteopath; I had the feeling my whole trunk was skewed after the crash,

and osteopathy really helped more than anything else with that.
