Great first post, not at all random.
100mm forks on a Reign? WTF?!
Well duh, you have to run a sealant.
I use Selleys All Clear Window and Gutter silicon.
The second one is awful. Wheelbase too short and the weight is too far back. At least the first one looks good!
PS: Sorry, poor attempt at humour but I'm in a silly mood...
Hmmm. Wise counsel.
Taking this in depth question one step further, I would recommend going to the biggest bike shop in the area where one can spend literally hours comparing the extensive range...
Did you want cheap or did you want good quality?
Did you need Presta or Schraeder valve?
Whereabout in Melbourne are you?
And what approximate radius of travel are you prepared to commit...
Oh man, I hate when that happens.
Yes, it makes it easier to gun them down when they're in the one place.
I burned a heap of CDs and gave them to the reception place to play. I'd assured my friends that "the music will be good, I picked it myself".
I was mortified and somewhat embarrassed by...
Sick. Love the LeMond bars!
Looking forward to seeing this one finished.
We walked in to the reception venue to REM's "It's the end of the world as we know it".
Seemed appropriate at the time...
Congratulations, and also congratulations on a wedding outside the box marked "typical" and into the box marked "unique and personal flavour".
A car display and lasso competition is a good...
Oh well duh. :)
Awesome effort guys. Mad, bordering on suicidal, but awesome effort just the same.
When I was your age, that was my daily commute.
And I'd call into the pub on the way home for half a dozen schooeys.
I'm bored. I've done nothing of any value all weekend.
This weekend has been a waste. I think I'll take it into the bush and shoot it.
And I an't going back to skin it.
I hear ya.
My first road bike (of which the above Clamont is a "replica") ran clips and straps. I wore joggers for about a month or 2 then I got proper shoes with the cleats and eeek, it was like...
Shimano 600 FTW!
Get stuffed. :)
Sweet. I have some shifters but I think they're 7 speed. If you get in a bind and can't find yours let me know and I'll dig mine out and see whether they're 7 or 8.
PS: Is there any 640x components you're after, other than the wheels?
I get excited when you post some more pics. Until then, I'll pretend like I don't care, even though I do because I love a good bike build thread.
So in summary, pfft. So what.
Been there, done that, cried when I left. :)
Roto-vegas is awesome. I rode one trail an it was swoopy with nice corners and berms and rollers. I took it slow not knowing what to expect, but...
Edit: It worked! Thank you computer people!
Nope, same issue, though the Activity Stream link worked.
Trying it on wife's laptop to see if there is any difference.
