The New New Guy Thread. Your first post goes here. Seriously.

“you need to” respect old man and old biek and give fuckall to anal endpoint tenderfuck


#3462

Came for Andrew Squirrel’s NFE build details (thanks!), stayed for the Grant lulz.


#3463

Sup Paris. I’m listening to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg right now.

I kind of like your generic Instagram money pit.


#3464

Grip Kings, tho?


#3465

Your dynamo wires make me upset, but I’m not one to talk because I’m still using Knog lights.


#3466

Don’t those moneypits have internal dynowire routing or am I making this up?


#3467

The old forks did, but nothing else.


#3468

Mu unicorn fork has internal routing. Did I just get lucky?


#3469

No one I know did. There are vent holes on either side, and I managed to run a wire up the blade and out of the bottom of the crown, but it surely wasn’t meant to be this way.


#3470

I approve of this new guy’s dyno wiring style.


#3471

New guy do you have any more embarrassing bikes to show
What’s your favorite French cheese


#3472

Yeah, I got all excited about getting everything set up and figured I’d run the wire through the fork later. Also, it looks like the wire might be just a smidge too short. It’ll get fixed eventually…probably.


#3473

I’m going to pretend I don’t…

Just once I’d love it if someone blew our minds by having a standard issue lowtrail rando boxybag bike, but then also a massive freeride rig and a billion dollar tri bike. But no, you probably have a vintage Trek mtb with a big basket and some kind of quaint shifter setup and maybe a moderately priced cx bike, right?

edit: oop my bad the basket is on the lowtrail multistrada bike.


#3475

Hmmm. The hole on mine is on the back of the blade in the perfect spot for the dyno wire. I’ve exited it at the crown which isn’t perfect, but works just fine. There’s no corresponding hole on the other blade either…


#3476

This guy has the nuts on the OUTSIDE of his Berthoud fenders!
What a stupid piece of shit!


#3477

Are you supposed to put them inside, thus having to keep fender farther from your tire?

That’s pretty accurate.

I used to live in terror of getting something stuck in my front fender.

#3480

Yeah, can you clarify Rudy?
I have mine setup like this to prevent the buildup of mud/debris on the inside of the fender which always bothered me with my original NFE and the VO fenders.
