IIRC Before it stopped being used I put some new brake pads and tyres, prob like 300km wear on them. The black paint on the rims is beat up from sitting on those ceiling type hooks in my garage for the last three years, but other than that.

I'll also throw in some mint SKS front and rear mud guards, a decent ulock, a usb rear light, I might even have some spare tubes you can have. I have a lot of random shit I don't need, so if it fits on the bike you can take it lol. LOL

$140! dust collector sale!

This goes for anyone on RS! I'm not really motivated to sell it, but if it's RS its going to be a lot less hassle.


That section between Hornby and Burrard is a goddamn death trap! I don't understand why the protected bike lane ends before Hornby...

Have you guys ever taken off your rear wheel and have your chain just hanging off and smacking into the chain stay?

Are you tired of having to move your crank with the rear wheel off and having your chain completely destroy your chainstay tape?

Ever want to transport your bike but need o remove your rear wheel to fit it into your car but don't want the chain kicking around getting your carpet all greasy?

See pedro's chain keeper and thnk why the fuck something so freakin' basic costs $26 and it's not even shipped free??

Well I got some inspiration from the internet to go to the hardware store and get a solution for under $3







Things you need:

1x - 5/16 Carriage bolt 2"
1x - 5/16 wing nut
2-3x - 5/16 washers to clamp and space the rear drop out

The spool is up to you but you need 2 flat washers to act as the walls to keep your chain and 4-5 smaller washers (you can chose plastic ones) sandwiched in between to roll the chain onto.

The most costly part is the carriage bolt that comes in at a whopping $0.65 and the wing nut which came in at $0.45. the washers range from $0.14 to $0.20.

It's much easier now to work on the bike with the rear wheel off. Transporting the bike will be much easier now as well.

FAQ:

1) Does this work on red bikes?

No. No it doesn't

2) Will it damage the drop out?

Not unless you over torque the wingnut, there's two flat washers clamped onto the drop out on the one I put together so that it doesn't chew up the drop out anymore than the skewer already does

3) will this work on a horizontal drop out?

YES! it definitely will, but I would add a few more washers in the spindle sandwich as a single speed chain can be slightly thicker than a road chain

About a month in post-accident. Got a lawyer to help me deal with ICBC -- thanks for the various tips and recommendations! The case is still ongoing but I'm also starting to build the new setup so that I can ride again once I'm able to. I'm packing a few extra pounds whilst not being on the bike and getting much exercise.

Here's what I've got so far... a Cannondale CAAD12 -- heard so many good things about this frame that I decided to join the aluminati

Nice! Beautiful looking bike! What is setup? What does a Caad12 start around?

Am I late to the dance, all of a sudden I see Reynolds wheels everywhere?

Hey guys, looking at getting a road bike and my budget is going to be around ~$1000. Any suggestions as to what to look for and if it's an ok budget. This is going to be my first road bike and planning on doing a fair bit of biking this summer.

I think because Reynolds are very affordable for what they are (unless you're talking about their RZR46s..) and are usually stiff and light..

There's likely more Eastons locally though!

tomatogunks bike looks like an ultegra set up with those sweet sweet cannondale spider rings...

i think you can get into a Caad12 105 for a few Gs

My humble suggestion would be to get a few years old used road bike, find one in good shape, get a great value and ride it till the wheels fall off. Then, if you're really hooked, spend more money on 2nd bike (go full carbon frame, ultegra, etc.)

For a first road bike, you should be able to get a real good one for <$1000. Make sure groupset is at least 105/Tiagra. Everything else in that price range is probably about the same components.

I really like Specialized. Eg: something like:
https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/bik/6148314454.html

https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/bik/6135940001.html

https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/nvn/bik/6153733297.html

Cannondale Synapse - https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rch/bik/6181465714.html

Older, full carbon frame with 105
https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/van/bik/6173951342.html

https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/van/bik/6187481864.html

Good luck!

Thanks for those! I'm unfortunately around a 50-52 since i'm only 5'6" :P but they look like pretty good deals! I'll send that Cannondale Synapse an email.

^Definitely size properly and also considering spending a bit more and get 11 speed. You'll be future proof for a bit. Higher chance of re-sale down the road if you decide to upgrade.

trollguy is right, it's setup with Ultegra mechanical at the moment. I'm contemplating of swapping it up with Di2 but I'll wait until I've ridden the bike long enough before making the swap. The overall geometry is a lot more aggressive than my old bike. I typically ride a 52, I got this one as a 50 but I wish I got a 48. The frame is huge!

I was looking at all around wheels from In the Know Cycling and he recommended these Reynolds as the best value all-around wheelset. Originally I was gunning for a Dura-Ace C35 but couldn't resist getting these when I found a slightly used pair being sold for less than $1000

What do you guys think of the BMC ALR01 Tiagra? Bicicletta has one for 1200 I think in my size. Was going to check it out tomorrow.

Really hard finding 50-52s on Craigslist

Go to a shop and talk to people; try 3 bikes. 2 within your price range and 1 totally way beyond. This way you can tell what's going on.

1) Always buy a smaller size than you need. There are ways to fit you on a smaller but you can't size down. I'm 5'5 and definitely a 52cm for Specialized was still a bit big. I wish there were 50' out there on CL.

2) I have seen some unprofessional shops out there who would sell what's in stock instead of sizing you properly, just FYI.
