@Playdirty I agree with you. Although we can only see what to expect by only reading the specs (the pictures of the frame on Leader's site are super dark, probably for a reason...

Why what...? Why do I think Cinelli has the power to change the direction of popularizing frames? Or Why do I hope to see more traditional geo frames in the future?

I feel you on that too. I think Cinelli has the power to switch the hype from the faux pursuit geo to traditional geo as well. Hopefully we'll see more of that.

The Parallax isn't that bad. With MASH's huge following, this and the new Histogram won't have any problems selling. The matching kits look pretty cool too.

Doing the Kilo TT route and spending the rest on upgrades is one option. Another would be to hunt on Craigslist for something used and complete.

"I don't know much about bikes" and using the "fixie" term says a lot about the quality of advice. And dude..that Dosnoventa frame is just about double his price range.

I wouldn't take Akuma's advice.

The tire is a-ok. The threads on Gatorskins aren't that great so it's normal for that happen. It happened to me too.

Exactly. To be honest, I actually don't know much about carbon repairs or care to know. I never want to resort to that option with my wheels. But I figured it would cost a lot m...

Haha. Very true.. OP never distinguished between the rim and tire in the description. The only reason why I assume it's the tire and not the rim is because this thread is enti...

Of course it can be restored, no doubt. But it'll cost more money to repair it than how much he bought it for. Definitely not worth it. He'll then have a compromised wheel that ...

Isn't that the same thing as "fixing" it?

You're rim didn't do that to the tire. The only thing I can think of is it being the tire itself. Maybe it is defected. Contact the company, explain the scenario, and go from th...

He said the side wall split open in half. I'm sure that definitely qualifies for structural damage.

I'd have to go with Scrodzilla on this was one. Either get the crack professionally fixed (which will cost more than what you paid for the wheel), or trash it. Not sure if you ...

Track bikes do.

why so many fixies?
August 14, 2013 02:42 PM in General Discussion

Same with iminusd. They are a little pricey. www.benscyle.net has always been a good one. Good prices and variety. I always use eBay and Craigslist too. Make sure you're sea...

I see what you're saying. If you're looking for a modern company that produces vintage style frames with those specifications, I'd check out Pelizzoli bikes and Colossi too. The...

Vintage bikes that aren't perfect? A lot of vintage track bikes are lugged with tight clearances. It sounds like you're looking at vintage road frames or conversions. Those fram...

Lube does make things easier though. I have a feeling you have the right lockring since you said you bought the wheels years ago. If it's just now slipping after riding them fo...

Don't forget that lube on the threads either. If it is indeed stripped, it could be from not using lube. Gotta use the lube.
