AB's "Not Sure" & "Average" & "huh?" thread


#14141

you won’t see those dropouts through the disc/cassette bullshit once it’s built.


#14142

Black dropouts on white bike don’t exactly help cause.


#14143

Posting in “not sure” because the builder says it’s too flexible so we don’t have to armchair engineer it.


#14144

neat looking piece of shit there.

When I’m emperor I’m banning both sliding dropouts and bikes made out of wood.

Want single speed? Fuckin’ buy a single speed frame.

Want a wooden bike? Go fuck yourself.

I’d be onboard if it was certified amphibious


#14148

I’d be the first one to poison your drink, and I’d ride my Vaya Travel away from the scene of the crime, flipping double birds.

My sliding dropouts are the only reason why I can fit my trailer adapter on my Fargo.

But my sliding dropouts are also the only reason why the trailer adapter didn’t fit in the first place.

They are the solution to a problem that they caused.

And FWIW, I’m pretty sure that Salsa’s sliders are the nicest ones on the market.

LoL. What proportion of all bike-related devices can be described by this statement?

Iro model 19: ebb. Load of garbage, creaky pain in the ass
On-one disc pompino: what a fucking headache, never been more glad to be rid of a bike
Kona unit: only ss disc bike that I enjoy owning. SLDR 4EVR

Bonus with sliders is that you don’t have to buy a whole new frame when you realize singlespeed is dumb. One of my friends rides a 1x11 unit.


#14154

I guess that’s replaceable dropouts in general though not sliders.


#14155

it’ll be fine. it’s not gonna light or snappy, but it’ll do the job


#14156

strange intersection of technical novelty and total foppishness

the mount on the fork blade doesn’t slip down because it’s being pulled up in tension, as a stabilizer for the bag instead of a support

Can’t wait for bigbrand to steal it

The word “fix” is to hipster bike culture what “e-”, “-omatic” and “radio” were to popular culture in their times.
