@6pt just seeing this now. By Jan I would hope to be there. Hopefully my legs haven't gone to total shit by that time.
Guy in a full face of riding a cinelli mash. Me on a boris asking about your base bars.
I get what you are saying ... but I don't think that belongs here...
Thanks @6pt and @T-V not sure I am in the same shape as I was when I left. NYC took its weighty, fatty, boozy toll.
Also recent bike theft has left me fixed-less and my only other bike right now is a Merckx Corsa Extra upon which the rear wheel slips if I put too much power down - fine for long rides terrible in the city and in the park.
I am in the process of obtaining a new fixed park racer (see here) but it will be a little bit until it is all together. Glad to know there is something of a crew still getting together.
Might join the Thursday night rides as well.
For those of who ever rode with me in my forum hay-day (2011 mainly) you will know I rode a dark green lee cooper with pursuit bars (see attached). I moved to NYC and spent 4 years bashing it around that city instead. The very night before I was due to ship it with the rest of my stuff back to the UK (where I now live again) it was stolen from my locked garage. Now I am fixed-less. The silver lining here is insurance money and therefore a new project.
I have ridden steel for a long time and feel it is time for a change. So here is what I am thinking... may the critique begin.
F+F: Look AL 464
Wheels: Silver Low Flange Phil Wood laced to DT Swiss 511 (DB version on rear)
Crank: Dura Ace
Stem: Zipp Sprint
Bar: Profile Pro Svet V (w/ interchangeable track bar)
Seat Post: Fizik Carbon Jobby (RL 0 or something)
Saddle: Fizik Arione
Front Brake: Dura Ace
Lever: TRP RL970
The rest is dull or generic/don't care about opinions
Will silver hubs and cranks look stupid with black stem and seatpost?
Are massive over-size sprint stems for wankers?
Right. I am back in the UK after 4 years of NYs shitty cycle culture. Is this Thursday evening shit-show still going on?
