I change my bartape more often than I clean my drivetrain.


#5102

I don’t ever check my bike. Just get on and ride. It’s shifting like shit now and I don’t even bother to put it in the stand to figure out why. Eventually I will, but for now, I just don’t care.


#5103

I barely even want to ride my bike, why would I bother going out of my way to do bike-related chores?


#5104

Dude my bike was so unfunctional.everything caked with dust and sweat corrosion

We talk behind you back.[/quote]

Uh, OMG you’re the guy that makes the group ride pick him up from his house and doesn’t get invited back out because you refuse to ride to where everyone meets up I guess?


#5106

Uh, pretty sure you 2 are talking about entirely different types of “group rides.”


#5107

All in good fun

I ride to the rides. Bottom line, just look at your bikes once in a while. If nothing else, for safety. No shortage of component failures that can not just ruin your day, they can fuck you up bad. I’m sure I’m not telling anyone here something they’ve never heard before.


#5108

only thing i do before a ride is give my thomPson stem bolts a couple hefty full turns with the ol’ tri allen.


#5109

This sounds like in driver’s ed where they tell you to give your car a walk around before every drive. I don’t do that either


#5110

I don’t think anyone does except drag racers and the pope’s driver.


#5111

Tarck is about infinite adjustability while riding.

#5115

#5116

Bent cylinders that exist cuz Mr. Pubes came around with a tri allen.


#5117

yall were better with track bikes

when our bikes could be maintained with 9 allen bolts (5 chainring bolts on your sugino 75s, 2 on your 1A, 1 on your sugino seatpost binder, and one on your nitto s65), and 6 15mm nuts/bolts (two on each tire, one holding each crankarm into your unsealed bottom bracket)


#5118

I remember Sunday afternoons when I would take every moving piece on my bike apart and regreased every bearing. And I remember being bored an hour later because I was done.


#5119

$3500, 1100 gram per set clincher tubeless disc aerospokes anyone?


#5120

I think those are the ones I was seeing folks riding at world cup XC races. I had looked for them online for a minute and couldn’t find anything.
