Ya I'm not too stoked on the prospect of ruining my bike, which I know isn't so much a question of if, but when. But I am really interested to at least try racing (road, not crit).

I'm going to ask an old co-worker when I see her next week for advice. She started racing last year and is killin' it now.

Took my 4 year old son to the bmx track for the first time...we had a blast! He was on his run bike and killed it, even ate dirt a few times and got right back up. I was on my Spec Enduro which wasn't a good fit, and now has me wanting a dj/urban hardtail so I can pump.

Hey man, I saw this in wiggle and really tempted to pick these bike mounts. Did you do some drilling on your walls? How you liking it?

The Clug bike mount is super simple to install, and works like a charm.

Install is simple. If it's going into drywall or brick, you have to drill 2 holes, and then insert the supplied anchor into the drywall, then screw the bracket into the anchors.

If you're installing into a stud, then no need for anchor.

Positives:
- easy install (drill 2 holes)
- easy to use
- works as intended
- no stress on your bike when mounted (doesn't hold bike via top tube like most other bike racks, clips onto your tire and doesn't even touch your rim)

Negatives:
- instructions said use a 3/16 drill bit, but the anchor would barely fit into a hole that size, causing me to kind of fuck up one of the supplied anchors b/c i bent it trying to force it into the drilled hole... In hindsight I would have used a 1/4" drill bit
- I can see durability (of your wall) being an issue if the drywall this is going into is of poor quality (aged/worn etc)

Specialized Venge 54cm

If this is a legit 11r venge frame, I wish I had the room to keep another bike. I question if it is legit because a deal on CL too good to be true probably is.

Team riders will not use a Cannondale C3 stem on an Spesh Venge... LOL

Could always ask them to bring it into a Specialized dealer (Caps New West) and verify.

The frame looks pretty legit, but the sworks logo looks fake lol.

Other than the stem... the venge top cap/spacer looks like its sitting on top of a regular spacer or a misproperly sized headset bearing. And the rear der housing is super short. Odd set up.

A little birdie told me that 2014 Guru Flite carbon frame sets are on sale between $950 - $1100 at Pacific Multisport. Various sizes available. I am unsure of in-store availability.

Frameset only. No cockpit, groupset, and or wheelsets etc.

Anyone want some BMX projects??? I just don't have time for them.
4 various 20" BMX frames/forks in various states of disrepair/repair. Might be able to throw in some wheels and tires too.
$25 takes everything. Must take it all please!
Included in there is a CHROME KUWAHARA FRAME w/FORK! That's more than worth the price of admission alone. No photos right now, as I'm not home. Would make a great project for your little siblings, or kids, or yourself!
PM me if interested.

ALL GONE!

Anyone need a set of bars for your build? Or perhaps you want to try out a different width or drop. I've got a number to get rid of, most are brand new, never installed. A couple are used with tape residue. All are alloy (no carbon ones here). May have slight scratches from moving/storage, but will not affect performance and won't be noticed once wrapped in bar tape. Both 26mm & 31.8mm clamp ones. Let me know what you're looking for & I'll see if I have it; I have more than what's pictured! Flat/riser bars in various widths as well. Various prices, or trade me something that I need.
I want my bed back!
