    Gravel bikes

    I mean all those things are pretty easy to fix these days. Quite a few companies make wide dropbars. Also the general shape of drop bars has changed a lot since the eighties. The drops are a lot more compact (so less reach and drop). For example my On One Midges only have 112mm of drop. And the...

    That is a really cool bike. One question though, why are you running your tires at 110psi?

    Punk brothers (pair of custom rigid mtbs)

    So bronze was out of stock so the klunker is getting going grey. I am going to build up Suspect Device first cause I have more of the parts I need already and also a lot of klunking content on Radavist has really been calling to me. Just trying to decide how bling to build some things. Do I...

    Get a seat post to stop slipping

    I tried out a bunch of sizes shims and this fits the best. Also I did measure it with a caliper. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk

    Get a seat post to stop slipping

    Ok so my Schwinn High Plains townie is having problems with the seat post staying. I have a 25.4mm seat post with a 26.4mm cane creek shim in it with a seat post binder bolt rather then a QR. It just will not stop slipping. I made sure the clamping slot in the seat tube was clean and not...

    26 MTB to gravel bike conversion to town bike

    20ish miles is the most I have done. I have found them comfortable. I wouldn't doing anything overly technical. Getting the roll of the bar right was pretty important for me. I think I had them rolled back a few degrees to much at first and it bothered my wrist. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk

    26 MTB to gravel bike conversion to town bike

    So I said I was done. I lied a lot apparently. The seatpost has had almost constant sliding or creaking issue so I bought a 25.4 Kalloy Uno seatpost and a number of shims. Found out it was 26.4mm rather then 26.2mm. I was happy with my chainline fix so on went a Paul Component chainkeeper...
