re: racks-n-fenders, my old Frenchie, a 1975 Motobecane Grand Record touring bike, nearly always had a blackburn rack, and I mounted fenders every winter (out on the left coast here, once it stops raining in late spring, it doesn't rain again until the following winter). But, I didn't own a car 'til I was nearly 30, I commuted by bicycle for years and years.

No. Those are eyelets.

A lugged bike is one that's constructed by fitting the tubes into parts called 'lugs' that reinforce the joints and allow joining via brazing rather than welding. Here's a wikipedia article on it.

thats true, but another definition of 'lug' is... an ear-like projection. And in electronics, a lug is a screwhole used to attach a terminal.

Stem fixing,

Crack running across the internal clamp. Screw threads of the clamp bolt are stripped. There is a crack beginning on the stem itself but I'll have to get a picture of that in daylight.

All the parts in a pile,

And getting finished, ugly but it is going to work,

With the bar tape and a waterbottle the damages came to about $84. Not terrible. And it will work.

yeah, I realize thats not the piece that cracked, rather, it was the part that clamped the bars.

Whichever, totally slather on the grease on the part of the stem that goes into the steering tube :deal

It started in Ventura and wound its way into Montecito, Santa Barbara and Goleta, then back down the coast to Ventura. Hit a couple roads I've never been on and want to ride again, both on the pedal bike and the motorcycle.

I didn't end up riding on Sunday. YakWife booked massages for us at a spot down the street and they were just the ticket.

I can't believe how much we could eat after the ride. We were like bottomless pits.

:lol3

I'm going to ride 50 tomorrow and I know I'll be a full on carnivore afterwards.

I was bike shopping yesterday. Can someone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of 29s over 26s?

jtemple 08-28-2010 07:14 AM

My new ride came in on Friday:

So far, I've only taken it out on a quick street ride. It was sort, but SWEET. I'm going to have fun with this bad boy.

Tomorrow, I'll get it dirty.

Ummmm...29ers look badass and I really, really want one?:D

29'r roll over obstacles easier. So I have been told. Mine does very well off road. It needs a better motor though.
