See a doctor, please.

That's the 2nd most awful color for bicycles OF ALL TIME. It would beat out fluoro/hunter orange for first place if it wasn't for the speckle paint job, which marks it as part of a (blessedly) short-lived fad where suggestible people where gulled into believing that "visibility" was synonymous with "makes me want to vomit."

Not really, just some old Bianchi frame with Italian BB threading, hence why it's been sitting there for quite a while. I have an almost complete Golden Arrow groupset so I guess I'll slap that on it and beat it around.

Just bought my first roadbike for $350. A 1993 Diamondback Prevail TG. Rides way better than a lot of the bikes I tried in comparable price ranges. And it's a steel frame, and 22 years old.

Only issue is, the saddle is fucking uncomfortable as fuck.

Thanks. I use rear panniers up front for camping and groceries so anything heavy will end up just above the hub. I find having low riding racks means you can't lean into corners as well and occasionally hit high verges.

Shit. I was gonna buy a carbon. I bought a local fuji alloy for same price. Worried about carbon.

>>915004
How much is an assload?

Also. About the components. I've noticed they're all Ultegra. They don't put those on cheap bikes anymore, it looks like. Any reason for this?
>>
>>915048
They never put Ultegra on cheap bikes. Ultegra, basically by definition is high end.
>>
>>915039
Not the same components, and the frames are usually not great. Lots of cut corners. A BD Ultegra bike is usually not equivalent to a name brand Ultegra bike. It's still a good deal, but you shouldn't fool yourself thinking it's the same.
>>
>>915050
Keep telling yourself that. The Kinesis factory where my bikes were built is the same factory that builds brand frames such as Felt, Trek, Kona, etc...
>>
>>915048
You don't need to spend an "assload" what you do need to do is determine what kind of riding you do, then get fitted for a saddle or fit yourself to the best of your abilities. Determine the width of your sit bones and buy a saddle that is intended for the application of your riding and for the physiology of your bottom.

A good saddle will run you close to $100. A decent saddle about half that. Anything below that and you're venturing into dangerous territory. Especially if you're riding for long, extended periods of time.

The winter machine is doing well :)

>Keep telling yourself that. The Kinesis factory where my bikes were built is the same factory that builds brand frames such as Felt, Trek, Kona, etc...
First of all, that's not true. Trek's current subcontractor is Giant. Kinesis is just one of Kona's suppliers, they don't make every Kona frame. Second of all, every factory is more than capable of making several different qualities of bicycle frames. Just because Kinesis makes a super ultra hydroformed frame for someone doesn't mean their straight gauge econo-frame is the same quality. And that still doesn't account for for the fact that BD on average cuts more corners with component specs. You guys are like the idiots who think their aliexpress frames are 100% as good of the real thing, instead of just accepting that it might be a bit inferior, but you also saved a lot of money. Instead, you have to try to convince yourself, it is exactly as good in every way.

That's one of the major points for me riding through the winter. It's like me bitch-slapping mother nature. While everyone else is bundled up in six parkas and complaining about their walk from the car to their house, I'm out putting in miles in it.

>>915146
I don't like to do training or anything in this weather, but getting to and from work, the store, coffee shops, whatever, makes me feel a little bit better than other people and especially the other cyclist in town who forgo a bicycle in favor of a car for this time of year.

>>915148
If your fingertips are numb after 15 minutes you need to get better gloves. I always layer mine up. I use a pair of under-armour second skin gloves as a base layer, then I throw a pair of really thick and insulated hunters gloves over top of those. My hands stay toasty for dayyyyys, son.

It's my feet that get it the worst. I've found that buying wool socks from the hunting section work the best. Actually, a lot of my cold weather gear is adopted from hunting gear because they're usually about mobility and warmth.

Probably a good starter fat bike... depending on your body size, I believe shorter stems handle better for any descending or technical riding. Also make sure you have enough seat post inserted in the frame still to prevent breaking your seat tube.... looks like it's really far out.

Save up for a pair of Surly Nate 120tpi tires (worth it over the low tpi for suppleness which provides much more grip especially at low temps), you'll easily get 5x more traction and control over the Missions which are arguably one of the worst fat bike tires out there for control, especially in snow. I'm sure they roll fast though.

My half-fatty. mid-fat (2.8) rear.

This thing absolutely rips in the snow... able to track stand on steep snowy slopes and ride things never before possible in the winter. Rear-fat only really helps for climbing, so I don't crave it as I like the standard Q-factor and supreme snow control I have already, nice getting low low over the rear on steeps, which would be quite higher with to a full fat rear. Kinda miss the lowness of my 24" rear I used on my BFe before, but much longer tire contact patch with larger diameter wheel, which helps greatly

The roll-over capability on my Vee 5.05" is insane... over 31" diameter.

That's pretty, dude. My tour is ongoing I started in alabama, then rode to northern tenessee. From there I crossed the Appalachians into NC. Then to the coast and down the outer banks.

Longer stem would fix your issue. If you look at flat bar road bikes, I bet you'll notice the top tube is a couple cm longer. When you put risers on a road geo meant for drop bars and hoods, you have to compensate for it with a longer stem.

Thats not a mountain bike.

Not him, but those are frame rub protectors, not seals. Your shifter cable in the front is stupid long, but you could put it on so there's a bumper between the cable and the fork, although normally it protects head tube paint. If you didn't zip the back cable, you could have also put one there so it doesn't rub off chainstay paint.

Ok cool.
I didn't want to cut the cable down in case I go back to drop bars.

You can get silver braided housing for $12 off aliexpress, but the brake cables are downgraded, and not compressionless.

Michelin Dynamic Classics, and thanks! The Michelin's are a great value ($30 CAD for the set on chain reaction) but after 3000km i'm flatting like a mad cunt. Wanna do some touring so I'm gonna splurge on some Panaracer Pasela PT's soon.

Love your Soma, those hammered fenders would look great on my Cannondale.
>>
>>916381
personally I like the ones you have. your frame and trim is so low key, I like the matching fenders. I like chrome fenders as a classic look on some bikes, but I've always thought the hammered ones look god-awful. guess I'm weird, but I never understood the appeal of such a busy pattern.
>>
>>916423
>>916381
Other anon beat me to it - your Cannondale looks good with those fenders. You could use silver plastic fenders if you wanted something flashier (would match the 'dale decal and your matte grey parts), but polished alu fenders, which are distinctively old-fashioned, would look out of place on a bike with oversized tubing.
>>
>>916423
It hides dents and scratches
>>
>>916423
>>916428
yeah I suppose. I was stoked when I got the ones I have on, but plastic gets beaten up and ends up looking like shit
they have silver trim that's made of foil and it's starting to flake off and shit. Idk, I kinda really like the rando look those hammered fenders have, but at the same time it's a lil retrogrouchy and yeah it might clash with the bike a bit. Shame cause I'd love to have a frame pump as well, for practical purposes more than anything, but they only really work when the top tube is the same diameter

I hope my bike doesn't die

You can probably get away with rotating that lock so that it points backwards, and then you'll have room for a 2nd bottle cage. There's a sweet spot where you can get the lock so that it doesn't hit your leg while pedaling. I'd post a pic, but the bike I have setup this way isn't here right now.

I printed out a design onto some vinyl with the idea i'd measure and wrap it all origami like- but
I realized that would have been impossible 5% of the way through. Luckly i had a design that was kinda like Camo, so i could layer and patch it on. In hindsight, I would have sprung for UV resistant vinyl at an extra cost. I like how it looks all warn over time, and adds protection to salt corrosion .I had to take the whole thing apart- but it's been on there for 4 years now. The lines of red and black i did with electric tape to add a color scheme

They've been pretty fair to me! I don't really have mileage figures (and the track Bianchi is a new build), but I still have a 25c Pasela PT on my work bike and it's been going pretty strong for the past ~2ish months when I was riding that bike pretty heavily. I had a 28c Soma Xpress (basically a white sidewall Pasela) that lasted about a month-ish, but to be fair I was really beating on it. (December saw less delivery shifts on the 25c due to finals/CX season) YMMV lifespan-wise, but they're a great alternative to Vittoria Randonneurs if you can get them at cost/EP. The only real complaints I have are that the compound isn't quite as grippy for wet stuff and it ain't the most inspiring tire for cornering, but 66tpi will do that. But the current set I'm running on the Bianchi have been standing up to shenanigans and Ted Shred skid nonsense with little complaint so far.

pic semi-related; I think I've posted my steel roadie before but here's that same outdated pic again! Paselas are more sensible on this bike for what it does, but I'd love to put some Vittoria Open Corsas on and get buck on this thing.

Aside from most of your points, I'm pretty sure his brifters are angled properly, they just look somewhat off set because of the image's angle.
Also the cable housing at the rear derailleur looks like a pretty normal length.
I'm not sure how well Campy brifters would work on Ultegra, though. But I certainly haven't had the opportunity to try.

I'm running Grow-tac Equal Pulleys on my roadies to get 10s Ultrashift Centaur to work with 10s Shimano drivelines for the following reasons:
- Pit wheels (at least for my team) are (mostly) 10s Shimano
- Sick cassette dumps
- Campy wheels are expensive and Shimano stuff has greater range/versatility (CX bike will have Shimergo 2x8 via Chorus 10s with an XTR rear mech soon for an upcoming gravel grinder)
- It's funny

>>917598
As for the stem, the initial plan was to put a Nitto Jag on it, but decided a converter with a flipped riser for tarck-y angle would suffice! (The reach figures are more or less quite similar between the road Bianchi and my crit bike, with the exception of the Bianchi having a slightly more aggressive fit but I'm pretty accommodating so it's whatever) Plus I get to put a doughnut top cap on it.

I feel like I'm shitting up this thread enough already, but in this thread ( >>916978) I posted up an old pic of my MTB (when the bullmoose bars were on that bike) and here's an old one of my CX bike when it was in commuter mode. Sorry if the pics are a little blurry, was testing out this broken lens I had. CDale handlebar snack bag is so good. Maybe I'll take a horrible family photo one day

I like the upside down risers, reminds me of the cafe racer motorcycles.

There's no reason to buy pure fix when you can get a fixie off of bikesdirect that is twice as good at half the cost

I was not aware of these, thank you for bringing them to my attention anon. I've put Jtek shiftmates on other people's bikes before and don't like how they pinch and twist the cable (seems like would create point for cable failure), swapping out the shifter internals is a much better solution.

All your Bianchi's are beautiful - mine wishes it could be Celeste.

The orientation of the stops doesn't matter on this frame because the cable guides are brazed on above the BB (same style as this pic).

I Ride BMX
Most 26" and 24" bikes in my area (Texas) get treated fairly well, as opposed to most BMX riders who have to deal with faggots missing a "Yield" sign or trying to pass a stop sign or red light while we cross
Cars kinda suck, but I've noticed bikes help maneuver around to your destination more fluently.

Wow, a pair of these (one like yours and it's step-through variant) came through our co-op a few months back; the hubs were totally shot and the frames were more or less missing quite a few important bits, so we mostly ended up scrapping them I believe. (I think they're part of a tall bike project now?) It's a shame, yours looks super nice!!!!

>>917886
They're a lot more elegant for sure. I think my roadie was initially this lime green color at first; the guy that owned it before I did resprayed it celeste though. If you ever feel like repainting yours, that could be a fun project what with some of the lugs being pantographed and all. She's still pretty regardless though!!

Bae.
Just finished upgrading.She's got a Shimano 600ex arabesque partial group. Dia comp center pulls. Brooks cambium saddle. Nitto moustache bars. Think it weighs 28-30lbs. Solid ride.

The whole fit is fucked, the seatpost is the least of his worries.

>>918683
Haha shit. My b senpai. Will correct tonight. Please don't tell my mom
>>
>>918681
I actually like it, even if the frame is too big for you. If you can straddle the top tube, ride it and ignore anyone who says you're doin it wrong.

>>918691
My body is mostly torso. I do need to raise it a bit. Still in the process of fitting

"in the process," huh? Looks more like pic related.
>>
>>918683
I have a backwards post on one biek because it makes the fit better. I should probably replace it with a zero offset or set forward post but whatever.

did you miss out an 0 off that??
>>
>>914980
Looks like you upgraded the wheels. I had to send my threshold a3 in for warranty replacement due to a faulty bottom bracket. The threading was stripped. They took nearly 3 months to get back to me and when they finally did, they gave me a threshold a3 frame with a carbon thru axle fork and the wtb front wheel to go with it. I should have just bought an A1 to begin with. The hi-vis yellow looks bomb.
>>
>>915449
Nice. Is it heavy?
>>
>>918952
Yeah the original wheels and tires were trash but its a solid frame. Does the fork improve the ride? I might swap out the alu one but I love having the front rack.

You can get carbon forks with rack mounts. One of my bikes has one.

Whoops. I meant to say they gave me an entire threshold a1 frame. The handling or steering definitely felt more precise with the thru axle. Can't tell if the carbon fork is taking any more buzz off seeing as how the wheels are so plush and I haven't been on an alloy fork for a while. My club rides are usually on an all carbon road bike. Currently set up for commuting. I'm getting proper mudguards or fenders soon. I used to have a rear rack on my a3, but I took it off and decided it looked and handled better with less shit on the bike. Now I just wear a chrome cargo barrage backpack.

Look p. nice, so long as everything is working. Seat might have seen better days though.

What's that wire on the fork, not a dynamo is it?
>>
>>919271
Not a dynamo, it seems to be powered by two magnets, the light itself is not there, so might as well take it off.
