Best thread ever


#45085

I had actually forgotten about this. When I moved to SF I still had cantis on my cross bike. That’s a big fat nope out here.

[quote=kmcdon]Yeah, it’s a 52.

TBH I’m not even sure what the small ring is, but I have a 36t cassette and it works pretty decent going up the canyons with a load.[/quote]

I think I have weak knees

i do love the feeling of descending on a bike with weak brakes and wondering whether my hands will survive to the bottom of the hill.


#45090

Indeed. I recently hit a bunch of this:


on this:

'twas the best tingling of my fingers.


#45091

That looks like what I remember wissahickon trails in PA being like.


#45092

I’ve been feeling a vague urge to put Jones bars on my H/G. Should I do it?


#45093

ban


#45094

#45096

Those parallel-pull brake levers tho


#45097

i’ve been wanting to see these in action
do it


#45098

Never seen one of those. Looks like it might be a good concept… Why didn’t they catch on?


#45099

I’ve got the Ultegra 6750 50/34 but that’s too high of a chainring for me. What do I get for 46/30 or similar? Any reasonably priced rings? Wasn’t there an absoluteBlack taiwan knockoff someone found?

What about a 46 to replace the 50? Do you really need to drop the small ring down a size as well?
