Hey, just managed to get my hands on a heritage lo. I was hoping you knew what size seat clamp these take.

Should be 31.8. The seatpost is 27.2. The bike should have come with one. My Heritage did and I know the Los came with an even nicer one. But if you got it on the low low, then I could see how it might not have. Perhaps call leader.

Otherwise maybe get a sexy one from Thomson or Paul or something like that.

Nice setup bro ! Loving the gumwall tires. Me personally I like it better with the drops/hoods setup. It sure does kinda suck that parts in Japan costs a lot more :/

after a car ran me off the road and I ate concrete I recuperated for two months. I decided to put the risers back on because I just felt more stable. And its true I really do.

I feel better in traffic and everything. It looks like I might be buying one of my old frames back so I'll be putting the drops on that bike. And just leave this bike as what it was meant to be a comfortable town cruiser. The other one will be my fast bike.

Although this bike is still plenty fast.

But thanks a lot. When I found out that Resist was making the Nomads in 28c I had to have a set.

O.o?

You mean the thruster video? Not sure what that has to do with this. I'm in alot of places actually. I've been using this username for about 15 years or more.

Rarely you will get the case that people follow the name from one place to another and troll.

As it seems in your case.

I guess because people shit on your bike you feel the need to come shit on mine. Usually we don't get that too much here on Pedal Room. Too bad actually.

What about my setup is it that you dislike so much? I need to post my my recent pictures still.

Actually my first thought was "Hulk" like incredible hulk because of the green. But someone mentioned that I probably liked Donatello as a kid. I can't believe I missed that. I totally did. And I carry a purple handkerchief around too.
