My dad came home with a Giant Bowery when I was 13, around the time I was falling in love with cycling. I thought it was the coolest bike I'd ever seen so I rode it up and down ...

Basically, get anything made by Kryptonite and you'll be fine. For what it's worth, I have a mini and a large U-lock. I find the large waaayyy to big, the mini works great

Sanding is an absolute bitch. Me and my dad did a conversion project about 5 years ago and stripped an old steel frame. We tried using a steel wool drill bit to speed up the pro...

Doesn't look like it's legit. They claim to stock Cervelo and Cannondale, just checked both of their sites and neither have them listed as a stockist or retailer. Also, "Free in...

There's 3 days left in the auction though. It may be a steal right now, but expect the price to have skyrocketed by the end

Bought an aluminium frame with a seized seatpost, spent a week trying to get it out only to destroy the frame. I got it super cheap so it didn't hurt the wallet too much, but st...

Thanks, I know what to get now, just wasn't sure if the hub I had was so old as to make replacement cassettes hard to find

Question for all you expert mechanics out there. I have a rear wheel with a Shimano 105 hub and cassette that are about 15+ years old. If I take off the cassette, will a brand s...

I think Affinity Lo Pro's look awesome. Not exactly high end, but they look cool. Or you could get a custom pursuit frame from Gene Spicer

The "best" high end track frame available to the public is the Look L96 which will set you back $10,000+. If you want pursuit geometry (which I assume is for street cred rather ...

Ok, I'm the one who started this thread and even I feel the words "Cannondale track", "risers" and "25mm tyres" shouldn't be anywhere near each other. If you're gonna ride one, ...

I'd happily take one if it landed in my lap in my size for a bargain, but I'm not going to go out looking for one. If I'm gonna spend that money on a bike, NJS all the way :P
