Funny thing is people who can average more than 25 km/h on a nice hill amaze me. I've been working on my climbing and have steadily improved over the past year. I would granny gear it before but now I push through the pain on a harder gear. I started using clipless pedals just recently too. Crashed twice on the first day of using them lol. My goal is to climb either Grouse or Cypress without stopping by next summer.

I ride an entry level Triace S503, a Taiwanese brand that I picked up from Walmart USA online. I had it shipped to Point Roberts. If I remember right, it was $399 and came with decent parts, Shimano drivetrain, bladed spoke wheels. Its covered in Plastidip now so its pretty murdered out lol. I've had it for two years now but I think it's time for an upgrade.

My brother took his bike out around the block for a light ride, that's about it but I think he'll be good to go pretty soon!

Shiet you could probably jump a few spots on that Strava board on a bike with better shifters.

Nice work!

I've thought about it. We'll see what kind of shape I'm in after winter lol.

Has anyone here tried the velodrome out in Burnaby?

My understanding is they have dedicated noobie sessions but when 13 year old kids are lapping you...it's pretty discouraging.

god damn it. bike is making weird noises. when i stop pedaling either my hub, bb, or cranks make this knocking sound as the wheel spins. sounds like when you tap a frame with your knuckle. this only happens when cranks are in the 3-9 o'clock-ish position which is odd.

bugs the shit out of me but i don't feel paying a shop $70+ for a full overhaul when it could be a simple fix.

context: went to Westpoint cycles in kerrisdale in the past...wanted to fix a skipping chain and they ended up tuning the whole bike up. ended up happening again after a few hundred KM. did some research and it should have been a 2 minute cable tension adjustment after doing it myself.

Did you tighten/check the crank bolt? Sounds like a classic BB30 problem. Happened to mine and GREddie's bikes. I think it's a 14mm.

If it's only at 3/9 o'clock it likely won't be your hubs. Could be crank/bb spindle as mentioned above, possible that the bb needs some grease in the threads and cup/frame interface (if you aren't using press fit bb's), chainring bolts lose/dry, or even a slightly worn pedal bearing/bushing. I had a click on my mtb at roughly the same revolution which took me forever to diagnose and it turned out the pedal bearing was worn; new pedals cured the problem.

I think some people mentioned La Bicicletta but they are expensive.

I'm getting a bike fitting sometime next week at Pacific Multisport on Main & 28th. Will post details/results after.

There's a physiotherapist/pro triathlete that fits bikes as part of his services. If you have extended medical, then you can fit your bike through him, and claim the charge.

He works out of coquitlam....if you are interested in his information, i can take an effort to dig it up.

I assume you rode all the way up Cypress.

If so, you're a beast.
