Who's doing the Gran Fondo this year?
What time are you aiming for?
What are you riding?

I'll be at the 4.5 hour start line, riding my '92 Trek 2300.

Any mountain bikers here? I want to get into it and have done the bike park a few times in Whistler. Would be trying out the local burnaby mountain trails.

Any suggestions on bikes and where to start off from to learn? Should I go for a dual suspension right away or a hardtail and then upgrade?

I've got my Giant Reign for sale right now Good for Whistler, and can even climb too! Revscene price $700

Giant Reign X0


Honestly though. I love the idea of a hard tail starter bike. You'll learn to ride and maneuver rather then plow the hill over. I loved my Reign the couple times I rode it (First Full Suspension bike), but it's not near and flickable or agile as I was used to. But it sure is fast going down. People love all mountain bikes on the coast. Great for the terrain in the area, and can handle whistler too. I guess it depends on what kind of riding you want to get into.

^ agree with what Hud91gt said.
You could certainly get by on a hardtail on some BBY Mtn Trails, and would be even less of a target for theft if left locked somewhere.
With that said, I'm selling my Trek Fuel90 right now. Since he listed an RS Price, guess I have to do the same. $450.

If anyone's looking for deals, today is New West Cycle's last day in business. 30% off every part and accessory in store. Closes at 6pm. All Schrader tubes are $3, all Presta tubes are $5. They specialize in older vintage cruisers/bmxs, but do have a small selection of everything else. 6th Street and Carnarvon in New West.

edit: 3:30pm, just got home from there, still a good selection of new Park Tools, new SKS Fenders, new lock-on grips, cruiser tires, vintage parts

Thanks for the replies, I'm thinking DS because I wouldn't have to go through the hassle of selling and buying later on since I will probably upgrade later compared to a hardtail (I don't have space to keep multiple bikes at home).

Would like something that could handle the bike park as well but I think that would be well beyond my budget and skill right now.

Did my monthly GranFondo Strava challenge today from Surrey to Cultus and Back. Weather was awesome, wasn't too hot. The whole ride I only saw 3 cyclists. Damn. Need more cyclists on this part of the Lower Mainland. The roads here are awesome.

Cool bike! Is this a dengfu FM098? and their 38mm wheels?

What did the total build cost come to approx?

I woulda opted for different color choices personally. when u chopping off the spike? hehe


Im wondering if ur able to close the gap b/w the tire and seat tube by using a 25c tire?

well. to be honest i've had a few problems with them. its a hit and miss i guess. the guy i bought them off from has had 4 others of the same wheels but different depth and has had no problems so far.

as for my wheels. i've had spokes come off at the wrong time wrong event. twice happened during crit race. the spoke nipples came out and went into the wheels. i had to take out the tires, tubes and tire liners to take out the nipple out of the rim. so what i did was i took out all the spokes one at a time to apply lock tight into the nipples so the spokes will never come out again.

so far i've hadn't had a problem yet since then. i've gone down seymour at a blazing 70+km/hr - ran over few big potholes - fast over railroad tracks. i checked the spoke tension with spoke tension gauge on every single spoke every few rides and it seems to be holding fine and tensions are good.

so yah. i guess the "you get what you pay for" applies here. haha. eventually i will get a higher end wheelset. dont know when (for sure not soon) but at least i've tried the lower end wheelset so i got something to compare to someday.

maybe when you buy the wheels, quickly go to a wheel shop and ask to apply lock tight on the nipples? haha. maybe that'll prevent anything related to what happened to mine. GL

My buddy bought some Chinese 38mm rims. He had a bunch of spokes come loose as well. Had the wheel completely rebuilt (New nipples) by a local guy for $50 and have had no issues since.

If you can buy the rims, and hubs and get them built here, that's what i'd do… and might do.

700c x 27mm wide, tire is 23. Can't go too close to post since the front derailleur cable comes out from there.
It is 50mm deep

And it was extra $60 to paint. I do like the finish of 3k carbon. Can see the weaves.

SRAM red everything except for force crank and rival brakes. Build $2200

Any conspiracy theorists here?


Certainly does look like Ryder's bike slows down after he crashes, and once he unclips, it speeds up and spins away from him! I watched it over and over...and yep, I think there's a motor in it.

I don't know still, if you freeze the frames, between 2 & 3 seconds, the rear wheel of the bike hits the road pretty hard, and the weight of his right leg is still attached to the bike. Between that and the road, that should scrub off quite a bit of wheel rotation. Sure, the road looks quite smooth, but it can't be as smooth as polished concrete as in the 2nd video.
And maybe there's a motor in the bike in the 2nd video! lol..

If you look at his crank/pedal it doesn't move forward as bike spins away, so i dont think there's motor in there.. unless it's inside his rear hub??
