What did you do to your bike today?


#17821

Update:
Threw out the crappy tape and the shop I stopped at magically had caliedo tape in stock. Subtly TAF till death.


#17822

Yeah wow those disc posts on the Sundeal fork are way off. I moved the washers under the caliper to get it running in the meantime though. That bike is a lot of fun.


#17823

…except road hubs.


#17824

Put some basketbars and a boner stem on the Sundeal last night, which lead to needing longer brake cables, which lead to using my stash of compressionless jagwire cables, which lead to replacing the brakes with parts bin BB7s.

Now just need to figure out what’s causing what I think is the rear rotor to rub when I’m on it. There’s no rubbing when the wheel is spinning without a load on it. Happened with the original brakes too.

The brake posts on my fork are pretty off as well.


#17825

Loose hub? It’s always a good idea to overhaul cheap hubs anyways. Grease is cheap, but it seems most hub manufacturers are cheaper.


#17826

I’m hoping it’s that simple. Ran out of time to mess with it last night, won’t have much time tonight either, but wanting to multimodal it to work on Friday.

What frame? Make sure nothing is cracked…

Sundeal circusbiek, will check.

Picked up a Cannondale f2000 with a rigid surly fork in a trade a while back, started hanging parts on it for a slightly modern but very Jimmy inspired monster truck townie build.


#17831

Got bored and impatient after seeing rack/bag pics yesterday, so I started hanging bits


#17832

Motion in the ocean


#17833

Installed BB/crankset in Vaya. Determined that dangler tailhook was way out of alignment, so fixed that before getting the drivetrain working. I swear the stock Salsa hangers are made from wadded up gum wrappers.


#17834

Got my xtracycle back up and running with new cables, chains and rear brake pads.
Spent a nice afternoon in the yard drinking beer and working on the thing.

WOW.


#17836

greatest bike of all time


#17837

I want a patio like that for bike maintenance in the summer!
Every time I try to do it on the deck I inevitably drop a rare piece of hardware between the slats of wood and into the abyss of the gross crawl spot then get all the neighborhood dogs yowling.


#17838

Oh man you gotta be careful in my yard! The cracks between the bricks are voracious hardware eaters!


#17839

jammed a 650x42 knobby in my Steel District
HY it fits with way more room than expected
WTH I still don’t have an excuse to replace the frame
so turdly but the paint is so pretty

Ya’ll should put a mat/rug/blanket/towel down for catching stuff. Amateur hour over here. A canvas painting tarp is perfect for this
