The ______ vs. _______ Thread

(closed)
so it seems like every thread is a "should i get a _____ or a ______,"
specifically a "pursuit frame" vs. "pursuit frame" thread, so this is my attempt at making an official vs. thread so everything can just be kept on one thread and people could find information easily.
SO! if you're undecided on something...post it here instead of cluttering up the boards, please. your fellow forum buds would appreciate it.

Sincerely,
your favorite riding buddy you've never ridden with,
Daniel

@iridefixed - you can't go wrong with either one, honestly. the DA hubs are definitely gonna less expensive and a better choice if you are trying to go with a full njs/Japanese build imo

cotton is best. get some nice gloves to ride in instead of plus tape that just rips .
cotton also has better characteristics to it in time i find. :P + super affordable :)!!!

rust proofing/ frame saving frame internally and washing one in a while VS thorough cleaning after every ride.

is it good to be cleaning your bike components all the time?

There's nothing wrong with cleaning your stuff all the time, but I just can't see the justification on cleaning your bike after EVERY ride. I would probably go with framesaver and be done with it but then again I live with California's weather so I can't relate. lol

cleaning after every ride is fine (a lot of fucking work though). the important part is to make sure you dry it and re lube it well. I try to always make sure my drivetrain is clean, and do my whole bike about twice a month.

Swiss Stop Yellow carbon pads (came on Red brakeset) or spend the coin and get proper Swiss Stop pads for Alu braking surface for my wheelset.

Ive heard that using carbon pads are fine from some people, heard opposite from others. Anyone have any experience?

Carbon specific pads on alu braking surface.

I've heard the same thing aswell about using carbon break pads on alu surface.

If I'm not mistaken there should be nothing wrong by doing so except that carbon break pads wear out quicker on alu.

you should just get brake pads specific to your braking surface since you'll get the most efficiency/better stopping power from them that way.

I just bought a Vivalo on ebay and it comes with a Hatta bb. I had a superlap on my previous bike with 75s. I know these are pretty much the same bb but I would just like someones opinion. Which should I use?
   
April 3, 2013 02:24 AM
Both should work. Is it a Hatta 9400 bb?
You should check the condition of it, if anything needs to replaced then do so and save yourself some money instead of buying a Superlab bb.

Yeah it is a R9400! I'm saying I already have a superlap in my possession, I was just wondering if they are actually any different? I'll probably just see how the hatta spins and then decide what to do I guess.
   
April 3, 2013 03:13 AM
Well I have never seen or have ridden a Superlap bb.
But I sure as hell know that those Hatta 9400 bb's are made to spin for daaayyyyzzzz.
