  1. The carrier in the rock n roll should wash it away anyhow so.... What's up with what looks like pealing on your rear wheel? Just the picture or?
  2. Mission accomplished then. Did you keep the factory lube or clean it off? (I would keep it if you're using a mineral based lube but I dunno which would be better when using a polymer based lube)
  3. The Titanium Nitride coating is supposed to help reduce friction but.... yeah. Bling.

    Boardwalk Empire

    That was a very strange episode....
  5. http://www.amazon.com/ASICS-Mens-Myles-Running-Tight/dp/B003F24B0U $9 running tights? According to the size charge I should be a medium but other then a little bunching around the knees after a ride around the block (15 miles) the Xls fit me fine.
  6. My concern would be not being able to move the saddle forward enough with an offset post........
  7. Can't decide between the Cane Creek Ergo control II "bar ends" or the Ergon GS2 grips.... I hate when that happens.
  8. That guy needs a lesson in trail etiquette.

    Caught this at the end of an episode of Californication and was like WTF. Kinda grows on you though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iBe53ruE1g
  10. Getting time to consider cold weather stuffs again. Anybody have a pair of tights they are fond of or even a pair they hated?
  11. My idea idea cool chain-rings has nothing to do with their aesthetics. http://www.osymetricusa.com/ Biopace on PEDs?
  12. For the Nishiki posted a few pages back? The bike in the picture you posted appears to have a Sugino impel crankset. A 110mm spindle length BB-UN26 or BB-UN55 would do the trick. http://www.amazon.com/Shimano-BB-UN26-Square-Bottom-Bracket/dp/B007FP6NB8
  13. Nice rides guys. 35 miles crunching gravel (on dirt roads) with the fat tired bike was not as much fun as I had remembered it being... Ordered a new chain for the Fezzari and the frigging Topeak chain tool broke when I went to install it. Any suggestions for a replacement?
  14. I was looking at those same gloves on eBay this morning and debating if I really needed to order another pair of gloves for the rest of the season or not..... Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/370887834415 Nice price but the seller's feedback is underwhelming.
  15. Switched from the Selle SMP hybrid to a cheapo, Selle Italia Q-bik Flow and did 30 miles yesterday. No more rubbing problems but there is a spot on the right side (where the rails "attach") that poked me wrong with my old, worn out Endura shorts. About to find out if I have the same results with the Pearl Izumi Attack Shorts or....
  16. The frames on those don't interfere with your peripheral vision?
  17. It's a Selle SMP Hybrid on a Fezzari Speedster.... Problem is the saddle is to wide when I'm positioned all of the way back and combined with the Zabriskie pore clogging sap of failure I ended up with rubbage sores on both sides where inside of leg meet butt. Although compared to the tape measure measurements of the Hybrid saddle the dimensions suggest the Cobb Plus is roughly 3/4" narrower through the center....You're right about the Cobb saddles not being particularly narrow (through the center)..... Dunno where I got that idea from.
  18. Any thoughts or opinions about the Cobb saddles? A saddle with a slender mid section is very appealing for me today but they have a rather unique appearance. http://www.cobbcycling.com/shop/roadsaddles
  19. I hate that spot. Pipe cleaners but long swabs work pretty good to.... Example: http://www.amazon.com/100pc-Inch-Handle-Q-Tip-Applicator/dp/B007FLKJSA
  20. Lezyne S Caddy but I do not carry my phone on rides (I carry a mini meter and insulin pen instead).
  21. That video is the strongest case I've seen for someone that needs pedal extenders in quite a while. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Sunlite-Pedal-Extenders-Crank-27-5mm/dp/B000QDGJVU Not so random image from todays 50 miler.... (what the former Mentha ghost town looks like today) And the back story if you're really bored.... http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-153-54463_18670_18793-53363--,00.html
  22. 30 miles for me tonight and the last little bit of scab feel off somewhere along the way. Anyhow... it's time for a new pair of gloves. Again. Any thoughts about the LG Nimbus short finger gloves? http://www.competitivecyclist.com/product-apparel/2013-louis-garneau-nimbus-gloves-12403.13.1.html
  23. I'm surprised the magic smoke is still inside the TLE with metal jacks on a metal panel with a Pimeta.
