I'm going to be in town for about ten days to do some job shadowing at SPL...and I'd love to have a bikey to ride while I'm around. Anyone have anything junky I could borrow for that time? I'm about 5'5", if that helps. I'll bake you cookies or bring you a six-pack or some other delightful thing.
A crackhead sold me this bike for $27. I know it is stolen and I'm trying to find the owner.
a few years old but in good shape and quality components. probably taken today from around the central area or madison valley. describe it sufficiently and I will return it to you.
Hi all, I got in a wreck a couple days ago and I'm worried about damage to my bike. I hit a pothole going 30 or more and the front wheel tacoed instantaneously and the bike and I went tumbling. I'm ok except for road rash, but I'm worried about my bike. It's a Fuji Cross Pro, which means it has an aluminum frame, carbon fiber fork, and aluminum Shawla 550 hubs and rims. My question is, how can I tell if there's damage to my bike that I'm not noticing immediately? Obviously, the rim, spokes and tube (which blew out) are a lost cause, but might there be micro-cracks in the carbon fork that I don't see but might mess it up? Will I only find out about them when the thing breaks in two? I got in a wreck a few years ago that tacoed a wheel, and Velo on the hill was able to straighten it out for another couple of years of use, but this rim is in much worse shape.
Are there anything else I should consider or inspect or have a shop inspect to ease my mind? Of course, I just had it tuned and new brake pads put on.
Thanks in advance.
WEST SIDE INVITE in seattle this weekend dickfaces.
I won't be there because I'm fucking broke and should be living under a bridge. But those of you who can, fucking go and stop being a fuck face. |
I rode around Vashon Island yesterday with some friends. It's beautiful, there is hardly anyone on the road, and every single driver was polite and passed safely. Even when I was hauling myself up The Hill We Weren't Supposed To Take* at about 3 mph on a road with no shoulder.
Go do it! You won't regret it! It is really hilly, though.
*There's one on every ride around here, isn't there?
