Does anyone have any tips on installing a front derailleur? I've watched many How to videos online. I am trying to replace the front derailleur on my hybrid bike. It's a SRAM X9 3x 9 speed.

All the videos say the front derailleur height should be 1-3mm from the large chain ring.
Well, the best I can do is around 5-6mm. At 1-3mm, the middle chain ring will rub against the derailleur cage. I've been trying to fool with this for over 2hrs. I gave up, left it at 5-6mm height and it seems to shift well.

Got a photo? Just trying to understand why your middle chain ring would interfere with the derailleur cage. But if if seems to shift well where it is, I would probably leave it, just set your adjustment screw to limit the derailleur so you don't throw your chain over the top.

From my understanding, triple chain rings and FD's can't follow the "1-3mm" recommendation for that exact same reason. If it shifts fine now I'd keep it at that height.

Parents with kids under 3 years old.

Do you prefer child seats or trailers for bike paths and flat, groomed trails?

Suggestions or insight please.

Haven't tried a child seat, even though I have a brand new one that I received as a gift just sitting in my garage. We've been using a single child trailer (MEC), which I picked up off of craigslist for cheap. Bike handles the same, but you can feel the weight behind you. Works perfect on paved paths and roads, and the POCO trail (gravel.) I would tend to think that it's safer than a seat, in the respect that you can fall off of your bike and the trailer should be unaffected. A double trailer might have trouble squeezing through those metal bar gates that some trails have.

That's exactly where I was looking for good, used ones and PoCo trail is where I'd mostly be riding.

Stolen bike:
My beloved Niner RLT commuter was stolen today from Granville Island off the back of our car. It's probably headed to the downtown eastside, but you never know. If anyone sees it, please get a hold of me or call the Vancouver Police. I will be offering a reward.

There aren't many of them kicking around in Vancouver, so it would be an easy spot. Looks exactly like the picture above with Yellow Time Atac pedals and an Angry Orchard bottle cap as the top cap.

Spoiler!

Shitty deal man, sorry to hear. Will keep an eye out!
On the same topic, besides my long story of recovering my co-worker's stolen bike, I recovered yet another stolen bike last week, through craigslist! Not as dramatic as my 1st story, but glad to re-unite another bike to its rightful owner.
Not to sh*t on your friend losing his bike, but I think we should all learn from this, & take that extra step to try to prevent theft. If leaving your bike on the rear rack of your car, at the very least, remove the front wheel and/or saddle (if quick release) and put them inside the vehicle. Or throw a u-lock onto the rear wheel and frame, etc. Yes, the bike still may get stolen, but at least the thief wouldn't be able to ride away so easily.

Hey aalex, yea that's mine

2012 Production Year Cervelo S2 w/ SRAM Red - Like New

I just threw it up online to see if there is any interest. I'm kind of "half serious" only lol.

I've been considering a current year BMC or Cervelo, going with another aero frame like the Timemachine or S3 / S5.

2016 will be an interesting year for aero frames. Couple new ones to consider

New Madone 9:


and new Venge:


I have to admit that at first I thought the venge was hella ugly, but its definitely growing on me in that ugly/funky kind of way. Plus Cav rides a super tiny size so the proportions may look weird.

not looking to buy this bike but just as an example, why do so many vintage road bikes have weird angled stems and bars? is it just because the owners did what they had to in order to make it fit?
