What can't you stand?

7/29/2014 12:10 PM

I haven't made a thread in forever but a thought came up after I tried my friends bike and hated it. What kind of setup or type of part can you not stand? For me its super low psi tires and loose chains, and any bars that aren't chicagoed as fuck. Oh yeah and 30in wide bars, seriously cut that shit down

I cant stand riding a bike with bars over 8.5.. Whenever i go to spin i nosedive like a mofo and eat shit, even at low speeds. Tbh at this point i cant really ride bikes with cassettes any more either.

i went from 7.75's with a frontload with a shitton of spacers (uncut 175mm steerer tube) that was taller than my friends bike when he had 9s to now a slammed frontload with 8.85 bars and i like it a lot better
honestly when you look at 8.75's compared to 9.5s, its just like one bar thickness on top but sometimes it adds up

I hate my friends bike, high bb an small bars. My bike is the other extreme, 11.5 bb and perfect 10s that I traded my stick frame for haha
But for real, kids who cut their steer tube on their fork and then buy huge ass bars

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

oh yeah and super wide tires, every little move is amplified and you go slower because of the increased friction
im happy with my demo baja's in 2.1 f/r thank you very much
i want some t/a's in black but 2.3 is a bit too much for me

I feel you man, i don't have much experience with big bars and front-loads. I should have mentioned that all my friends run top-loads and a shit ton of spacers. lol

I hate parks with signs "No Bikes Allowed" !! Also No Trespassing sign.

Mirraco is my ride!!

7/29/2014 2:30 PM

Honestly I will ride anything and deal with it. But I won't be happy about it most of the time.

My biggest pet peeve is loose stuff, hubs, chain, hs BB. GROSS. I also hate when someone has brakes with WAY TOO MUCH PULL.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Bikes that sound like they're about to fall apart, rocks in my shoes, flanged grips, setting back wheels, eating shit and oh yeah..scooters!

Brakes that the cable slaps off of the bars, loose chains, low psi tires (under 60), TIRES ON BACKWARDS, bars that aren't lined up perfectly, when your rear wheel is seriously less than a mm from completely flying out of the drop outs, hella high seats, another thing I dislike is when kids take off their brakes but leave their lever or calipers or something like that on the bike.

I am very picky.

i see where you are coming from on all of these but one, cut bars
if its super skinny (25 wide or some shit) thats one thing, but personally i need around 28-28.5 max to be comfortable, and more bars are 30 wide these days, and thats way too wide for most people
