One of these things is an extremely expensive carbon-fiber-framed fixie with no brakes.

The other is a practical daily ride.

Is that why the bike lock is very subtle one of of them. I foresee the owner of the hipster bike to come out and see it laying on the ground with a bunch of bent spokes from someone trying to steal it.

My cyclocross, frame is a Chinese titanium copy of Cannondale CAADX, running on Ultegra parts. Got it second hand for nice price. Altho it needs better front brake asap. Bought cheap bike two years ago just to see if I still like pedaling before pulling the trigger. Like the titanium alot, really soft feel. After testdriving friends fixie I got a strong urge to buy a one as third bike.

Emilio thank you for your infromation, great read "It never gets easier, you just go faster" ..

I approve of this post. I still haven't ridden a titanium bike, don't plan on it either, lol.

I am about to either buy Flo 30s, Flo 60s, or Carbonzone 50mm deep wheels. The Flos are 25mm wide and I'll probably end up with the 30s because they are only $550 shipped, only 1575g, and the "zippiest" of all wheels listed. The 60s are cool but I'm not sure that I'll benefit from the aero wheels, although they are 1780g which is the same as the Mavic Aksium Race wheels I have now. The Chinese carbon wheels are $450 shipped but I worry about the brake surface and they are only 21mm wide. Any thoughts from the well versed? I want a wider wheel for increased handling and stability because **** gets kind of hairy in the group rides and I want more cornering confidence.

The best bike is the one which is ridden the greatest distance by the greatest number of people.

Citibike is best bike:

I would not have figured you for a commie.

anyway, I would argue that the best bike is the one that grants its rider the most enjoyment.

Well, I'm torn here.

On the one hand, I am obligated by my birthright to oppose communism.

On the other hand, I am finding voluntary collectivism to have certain advantages.

The greatest bike is the Parlee Z Zero in waxed carbon with Di2:

I'll take the $1700 wheels on there too.

Then again, maybe this Spooky is the best bike because of it's craftsmanship, reduced cost compared to the Parlee, and it's built by a crazy socialist.


But there's also this bike that's built on a $99 frame with affordable but quality components and because it's affordable just about anyone can own it:


Capitalism is ugly and mean to people, but it's created bicycles that I can afford, lol.

Supposedly a great bike and I have no doubt considering I have a Sette poverty bike, so poverty that it came iwth 105 shifters/brakes/crank/deraileurs/BB/cables and housing. Most any bike you buy for under $3500 will have FSA crank, awful brakes like Tektro, and garbage cables. My parents have great Cannondale carbon bikes but the brakes, shifters, and basically anything you touch feels like **** because it's the cheapest **** the manufacturer can put on it.

You can no longer pedal with the Poverty Peloton. You have to go ride with middle management.
