Sadly I've come to the point where my shoulder will no longer stay in its socket while I'm riding. Even more sadly is that I am employed full-time, have health insurance, but my insurance is such hot brown water trash that I can't even afford an MRI ... more »

I get Mitch McConnell levels of wishing bad things upon you.

To add to this. Drop your tire pressure 10 psi and see what happens. Also when you go to pull up, picture pivoting from your hips. I find it easiest to pull and hold a good manual when I don't jerk into it too quickly. Another thing I've been doing is ... more »

6'3" and 290 is about my size a couple years back. I'd suggest anything full 100% Chromoly, everything sealed, and a 21" or 21.25" TT length. Out of the companies that sell completes in your budget: Sunday is good Kink is good WeThePeople is good Cult ... more »

That'll catch up with you. Sleep is the most important thing behind food and water.

This is where I'm at now. I can 180 on flat, flyout, do a pivot roll-out (still working on half cabs) But I'm focusing on riding fakie. A lot of people tell me "just forget about that, nobody fakies for a long time any more" to which I say, "walk then ... more »

I'd be cautious about SE complete cranks. The frame is fine, but the components aren't the best. I'd upgrade wheels and cranks first.
