  1. I think that we can all agree that recumbents are better than uprights though.
     
  2. They're cool, but only for people over 35 years old.

  4. Or people breaking the world speed record on a bike. Or the hour record. Or not climbing hills. Or not doing trackstands or foot-down competitions or bike jousts. Cool though.
     
  5. They are terrible for hills.

    I am going to buy a nice road bike long before I make another recumbent.
     
  6. I just bought a Gary Fisher Rig

    SS FTW!
     
  7. speedlays are nice buy I prefer look pp226 or pp396 pedals
     
  8. I would have preferred them in yellow, but these ones were free. And they're light as hell.

  10. Here is my new road bike that they are on.
    2007 Felt F3. Full carbon frame. Dura Ace shifters, front, and rear derailleurs. Ultegra brakes and cranks. Ksyrium equipe wheelset (upgrading soon.) Hell of a road bike.
     
  11. Do you have an Ultegra or Dura Ace bottom bracket?
     
  12. Ultegra.
     
  13. How do you clip out? Do you just pull hard or do you have to press something?
     
  14. Good call. The Dura Ace bbs are very problem prone.
     
  15. Whoa, that's a sick setup!

    What are you upgrading to?
     
  16. twist your heel to one side or the other
     
  17. Probably Ksyrium SL or ES.
     
  18. Those are some badass wheels.

    The guy I got the speedplays from rides on Zipp 404s, which are cool as hell, light as hell, and stiff as hell, but he says they break all the #$%#ing time and really aren't that high quality of a product overall.
     
  19. does noone like Single Speed XC bikes? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A><A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>;_;
     
  20. What kind is it?
     
  21. i already posted <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>


    lol it's a Gary Fisher Rig. 29" wheels FTW!
     
  22. Wiqqed siqq. My uncle swears by 29's. Says they make a world of difference in negotiating obstacles.
     
  23. i took it for a test ride before i put my deposit on it and it was awesome. i really didn't expect the 29's to make that big of a difference, but it just rides so smootly over things that would possibly knock a 26" wheeled bike off course. wicked deal on it too... they'd bought a load cheap from Trek (who apparently own GF now) so instead of like, £800 or something they were £450. I got the last one they had <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>.

    OH and i was a bit wary about the whole single speed thing, but as it has longer cranks to what i'm used to (from what i could tell) and it obviously has a smaller chainring, it felt like the perfect ratio to build up speed nicely.. and the 29's just coast forever.
     
  24. Whoa, wait. This is a fixie mountainbike? BAD ASS.
     
  25. Post pics y0.
