Holy fucking shit.
Wtf is that shit
No fucking way would I work at or get my bike serviced by that place.
just posted to instagram but initially took the photo for tarck. Went to put away a set of pedals and realized I might have a problem.
Would I be correct in assuming that there is not a single thing wrong with any of those?
loose springs, blown pins, etc. You can see the pile of parts to the left.
The two yellow pedals I took off (top right, mid-bottom left) were okay. I got them at a swap for $5 but one side of the drive side pedal was loose. The other 3 springs were as tight as a brand new set but one loose spring was fucking me up, especially for working all day. I’d rather be consistent and ride slightly loose pedals all around.
You can see a couple bodies in there with no springs. I definitely search out donor parts.
I solved all my Time ATAC problems by using Shimano SPD.
My wife is on them, and luckily hasn’t had any real issues with them.
I don’t trust shimano spds on a track bike. I don’t know anyone that does, honestly.

This was my logic for using atacs for many many years. Then I got a bike with brakes and a set of spd’s.
I’ve never, ever accidentally unclipped from shimano SPD pedals riding fixed, but I could be lucky.
here’s my bike + empty moving boxes mess i’m currently trying to organize:
My messbro friend won’t run SPDs on any tarck bike, even though we recently convinced him to get a brake.
He even got the bianchi celeste ATACs to match his '92 pista. It’s actually pretty sw8.
I absolutely have, and it’s fucking bullshit when it happens.
Do most people tighten their SPD float as they wear down their cleats? I can’t ever seem to remember to experiment but lately I’ve been popping out on a pair of well worn Terraduros.
Maybe this post will help me remember.
The main reason I haven’t messed with it yet is because I have two bikes with SPD pedals and two different SPD shoes at opposite ends of the wear spectrum.
I’ve popped out of SPD compatible non-shimano pedals, but the good old M520 has never let me down
YMMV (your mileage must vary)
Good to see another bike mess ITT.
Here’s mine while I figure out how to rid myself of half of my belongings so it’s no longer a mess.
While I’m definitely not happy one of my bikes got stolen I gotta say, it’s really opened up a lot of room in my apartment.
Room for another bike!
I was already thinking of selling some of my bikes. I have 7. This just confirmed it. One of the bikes (the giordana) is already spoken for, just gotta wait for the cash. The wolverine is going. I might keep the gunnar. Honestly at the end of summer I’d like to be down to 3 bikes including the bullitt.
