It has a rake of 40 mm. I know there's the track standard (35) and then there's 43 and 45 mm.

what made you want to slap some brakes on?
only noticed because you were riding brakeless with the bare knuckle and this for the longest

Rzjarvis93 says:

is it because youre getting used to your clip less pedals?

Posted about 11 years ago

Rushing

Rushing says:

No, I have rode clipless without brakes for a while. But since my recent accident (on Arpil 2nd), I figured I would get some brakes in an emergency and to ease up on my legs. Actually, the accident is a bit ironic.

ironic, how so?

Rushing says:

Normally on April Fool's, I would call into work and joke about how I got hit on my bike and can't work today. But I didn't do that this year and I got hit on my bike the next day.

Ah, ok. Well, sick bikes anyway. I really like your set ups. Popwar used to be my favorite skateboarding company back in the day.

It did have a threaded headset and quill stem, but it was a bitch changing bars. My Kilo is about to retire.

I was just testing the gear ratio to see if I like it enough to buy a chain tool, but I'm not too sure.

How are the lizards?

Posted over 12 years ago

Rushing says:

They are very comfortable. 2.5 bar tape is pretty thick and very comforting on long rides.

Maybe. Thinking about getting Syntace Stratos, since the Nitto-021 have drop. No drop, cut steerer.
