Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
check out the grandadddy of all jerseys:
the Assos SS.13 retails for $320.
that seams like a LOT of money for what your getting
how much can it cost to make one of these things....30 bucks max
these forma jerseys are very tempting but I already have three of them in ss - best jersey I've worn so far - how about some forma bibs?
any of the women try out the silverline shorts yet?
I bought a pair, but haven't tried them.
Tried the pearl izumi sugars - didn't like 'em.
Tried whatever these other pearl izumi's that I'm currently wearing and love 'em. they have like an orange triangle of flowers on the side.
Yea, as wrenches -in shop or in the pits- we wore swank sweaters all the time- NOT! I think by mechanic, they mean 'hitman'; the person who sneaks about sabotaging other team's bikes. But that doesn't make sense either, ablaze with color and an identifying brand across the chest. The hit would require burning the sweater afterwards.
It is all about the smell of team/brand spirit, apres wear.
I do like them anyway, and these larger sizes can always be shrunk in a hot drier to fit.
Not dissing on the wrenches. Just on the concept that I would want to dress like one.
don't be dissing on the wrenches. Though in all honesty, we never wore fancy smancy wool sweaters...t-shirts, shorts/jeans and aprons!
Fabulous. It's always been my dream to pass as a bicycle mechanic.
Probably the same person that'll spend an extra $100 to save 15 grams on their handle bars, but still wants to have a couple tools.
who's gonna buy an XS bag when you could get mediums and smalls for the same exact price?
Give these links a try for starters.
Circa Jeff Spicole. Ahh, the good ol' days
Winter is a relative term too. Since this is coming out of SLC, that would indeed be hard-core in their typical winter. If the roads aren't clogged with snow, then 700x21 ought to be feasible in the winter with a rugged tire like this one.
If you can't find it locally to at least try - try to get the measurements and go to the bike shop and find some other frame that's comparable and see how it'll work.
hardcore people. they're the ones who use tubulars too. is there even a tubular that is wider than about 23c?
Pick up this tire for winter training or if you'll be riding on less-than-ideal roads.
A burly training tire for rough roads.
Who rolls 700x21's on rough rodes in the winter?
I would strongly suggest you find a shop that carries them even if its a bit of a drive. It's really hard to tell how you'll feel on a bike from written specs. If its a case of your local bike shop just not having any of that particular model you should test ride another model from the same manufacturer since the materials may be different but the geometry will most likely be very similar if not exactly the same.
After years of mountain biking my brother had me turn to into a rodie. I plan on buying the Look 555.
Problem is I can't get this bike locally so I can't find out what I good fit for me is. Does anybody have a suggestion?
I ride mostly recreationally but complete in some one day tours and century rides. I usually put in about 40 miles a ride on various road conditions. Mostly flat and rolling hills where I am from.
So below I have pasted my specs and my recommended sizing from wrench science. Can someone help me out on picking the right frame size on the Looks 555. I was thinking Large or Extra large.
Height: 72.00 in
Sternum Notch: 59.00 in
Inseam Length: 35.00 in
Arm Length: 28.00 in
Shoulder Width: 18.50 in
Weight: 195.00 lbs
Foot Size: 11.50 USMens
WS Recommended Sizes
Frame Size center-to-center: 58 cm
Frame Size center-to-top: 60 cm
Overall Reach: 70.04 cm
Saddle Height: 78.50 cm
Handlebar Width: 46 cm
Thanks for any help

Hah, I've got you beat. I use a metre stick which is 3 inches longer than yours so I will be out of your range in this duel.
With my yard stick.
