Bought Bikes Direct 2nd cheapest FatBike. Had to get the neon green, looks great. (dont mind the red alloy bolts - I had some leftover so I threw them on) For the price of $500 US the thing is quite nice. Welds and frame seem good, paint is a bit fragile (checked brake bolts and some paint popped off). Picked it up after being in the US for a week and so no shipping, customs or duty. Not a bad way to buy a bike and I’d do it again. BD business model works well and the bikes are specc’d good for the price. If you’re not pro these China bikes are a great way to do it. Up here the cheapest FB is $1100 CDN, probably because of the hype still around them. The studded fatbike tires are something north of $200 each – and they are not even Hoosiers……eventually the hype will die down but I jumped on the cheap bandwagon for now.

Can't decide if that's extreme narcissism or just plain awesome.

Slow clap for you.

My new, used, ride. One ride so far, surprisingly smooth for an aluminum frame. Much better than my last single speed.

Steve Hogg's method of fitting: Let me overwhelm you with large amounts of numbers, theory, and long winded articles to find you an ideal position that only I can produce. I swear, I have never seen someone obsess over the minutia of bike fitting as much as he does.


Edit: Just noticed the matching mouse pad to go along with the bed sheets. You have the best friends.

He believes that rubbing magnets on bicycle parts can "change their polarity" and fit the rider. He also, among other crack-pot ideas, thinks that magnets can cure illness and adjust soft-tissue. Look on his site, he sells a "magnetic pelvic alignment kit". He's a ******* idiot, but probably rich.

You made a metric fuckton of a mcsteak and you live in relative poverty compared to all the rich oil barons in Dallas.

Building my around town bike frame finally. Ordering the tubes/bottom bracket shell and stuff now.


Will i regret chosing aluminum over steel, or visa versa? They are the same price.

reminder of rough design:


Its going to be a geared bike though, with drop bars.
Tapered carbon fork. Debating disc brakes or caliper brakes... but Im thinking I will use the 140mm discs I have now. I have both 140mm discs or caliper brakes in my shop... so that is the dilemma.

Spy Belgian Waffle Ride April 26, 2015.
https://www.facebook.com/SPYBWR
Signed up for this. 134 miles, 10,900' gain. Mostly paved about 10 miles of dirt, sand and gravel. They start a P/1/2 wave thena few minutes later, the rest of us. As of today, no where near the fitness to survive it. Much training to do. In years past, I'd be one of the top 20 or so P/1/2's. Now I will be trying to draft off the fat girls if I don't get my butt on the bike and start generating some watts.

I got just the bike for you Emilio for those sandy section. A nice beach cruiser, will handle the sand like it is nothing. You will just have to watch out because it is a single speed, and you pedal backwards to brake.

Tires are a big deal. Most guys run 23C road tubulars on road bikes. I'm thinking of putting the second chainring on my cx/disc bike and running 25c tubulars with fairly low pressures like 80/90. That gets me a crazy 32T cog for the one hill towards the end that's 20% for a while.
