Post your /fa/ bikes.
I just bought this 1988 Schwinn Sierra for $30, can't wait to ride it around campus.
it's better than that horrible schwinn with the wrong size wheels and the quick release lever that is about to pop off, although the bent out of shape bottle cage, the dork disk, and the CPSC "kill me" reflectors are triggering me
also I just noticed the schrader valves, so yeah, hurts to live tier
it's meme-y, but beats walking everywhere. Selling it to get a Cinelli, though.
You got breaks on the front AND back like a faggot. you ruined that wheel set with those btw. What's the point of those straps if youre not using them to slow down... Fuckboi
And nice crank set you probably dont even reach 15 mph on that shit
Regardless its a waste of elipses. and that handle bar too this whole bike deserves to be given to someone that knows what theyre doing to save these decent pieces from being garbage

I used to work with a guy that had a fixie that he claimed ran him over 2k. My buddy could out-pace him on his beat up nishiki dumpster bike. We had a hearty chuckle, and suggested they trade bikes to put all his carbon parts to better use. He was so god damned salty for months, it felt great to rub it in.
Oh, I know, this is just one of the only times I got to see one shamed so hard. I've worked with/known a handful of fixie riders and they were all douchebags. I used to just think it was all generalizing, which I guess it still is, but I have yet to get to know one who wasn't a prick about their bike. At least one or two of them could hustle on it.
you know a lot of people who ride fixies that are perfectly normal. you're just unaware that they ride fixies because they don't go around showing off their black-ink tattoos of bike cogs with handlebar mustaches whilst yelling "I RIDE A FIXED FUCKING GEAR BIKE M8."
it's called a silent majority and it exists in almost every subculture/interest/activity.
I'm not passing any judgement on people I barely know, like Facebook friends I met at a party once. I'm only referring to people I've actually spent any amount of time with, like coworkers or former classmates. And when you commute 32km daily for work, it's not like I don't know who else rides a bike, regardless of "skill" or type.
Not a clue, but that's pretty great. If he's a professional bike courier I would hope he could ride anything fairly well.
You're right I don't ride carbon because I don't have a 7 figure trust and actually race. Here's my track bike sans-saddle, and some of the parts for a critical build. Hoping to get it <6.8kg eventually
looks cheep, shit components
Not fa, but real nice
No your not lol, unless you are a professional track cyclist.
Frame too big
found the retard. Take the cage off, take the brakes off, take the bell off. You look like an idiot to anyone that knows jack about bikes
