Swapped out yellow Vittoria Zaffiro's for gray/black Michelin Krylions, (the yellow ones were WAY too bright, and too heavy)
Changed stems on both road bikes (now the seat/handlebar distance is the same and both fit better)
Got my Force front derailleur in the mail. It replaces the Rival currently on my LOOK. That is tomorrow's job. Life is good.
Upgraded my Schwinn from the basic CatEye computer to a 16gb, GPS enabled, wi-fi capable computer.
In other words, I installed an iPod bracket. I'm keeping a proper bike computer on my good bike.
Super cool to see there is a Rock Lobster and a Soulcraft cyclocross frames on the forum.
I'm currently building up my 2nd DeSalvo cross bike. Got most of the parts, just waiting on the frame. The goal is for it to be a very classy race bike. Almost did disc brakes, but the whole system is just too heavy to justify. I hardly use the brakes on the singlespeed.
If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.
As said on BAT "We’ll burn this guy to high hell for lowering his car but we will bid 6 figures on safari builds. Come on son" - 2mAn
Ordered some goodies for the cross bike.
Question: It's the SRAM chains that suck right? Would I be better off using a Shimano chain through a 1x10 Rival drivetrain?
Put some new commuter swag on the Schwinn. Moved the tail light to the back of the rack so it's visible.
Put "sponsor" decals on my Motobecane.
Ok, so they're obviously not my sponsors, but I was looking at the stickers and realized they perfectly matched the blue trim on all the other decals on the bike.
What year is that old schwinn Battle rabbit? I have a 78 Continental II I'm working on. I stripped it down to the frame. Worked on cleaning up the headset and relubing that yesterday. I want to get it back on the road soon. What are you using for wheels? I have the original chromed steel wheels for mine but may upgrade to something else.
If you upgrade to 700c wheels you pretty much need long reach brakes. If you need help finding some I'd be happy to check the model number on the Tektros I bought for you.
