TBH I’ve never been there. I work up by Allentown area (Coopersburg), but haven’t actually been to “the office” since last January. I live close to 422 between shady Pottstown and shady Reading, so it’s kind of a haul to get up there now. When things ... more »

I actually mark my bars/stem so I don’t go past vertical...but I’ve always just ridden that way, even as a kid. Have tried moving them in line with the fork in the past couple years cause I think it looks better, but just don’t like the feel. I’ve seen ... more »

Nah, I think Primo is still pretty dope. Love my Rebars and the Turbo pedals are comfy and big as hell.

I don’t know why certain looks just do it for me, but I love the arched seat stay bridge on this. It’s not too flashy, but is both functional and stylish. Nice job!

Haha, yeah I absolutely hate the look of going Chicago, but has just always felt right for me. No idea why

If you’re an older guy, then your time to ride is probably at a premium (just saying with job, etc). That being said, use some of that time to practice bailing. It’s not fun, but at least will give you confidence to try new things without worried about ... more »

Was jacked up to build this. Really wanted a short chainstay frame. My other ride is a trans purple Whammo: +13” CS, male freecoaster, pegs...this whip is a real contrast to that. Always rocked more industrial looking bikes, so I went back to the basics

My advice would be to prioritize your problems: mastering the composition of a comprehensive sentence would add impact to the 90s-era “yo mama” joke. Without this it all falls flat. Then perhaps practice the joke (like in front of a mirror) to see if ... more »

Riding bike without the seat...seen it at a show in Berlin. Not as hot as it sounds

The only thing worse than looking like an asshole and wrecking yourself is having (even well-meaning ) observers drawing attention. When I was in the Marines, my buddies and I would joke about the three essential rules during patrols: 1. Always try to ... more »

Clean, clean, clean my dude. Love the wheels...cool to see a cassette on a “street” frame.

Looks good man. How do you like the Zias?

Added reply in a thread Riding Street Alone 3/1/2021 5:03 PM

You’re not wrong. I think it’s just the reality of getting older and still wanting to get raw on the streets: 1. Many of the people my age (40ish) consider road biking and Peloton as the only acceptable “adult” biking activities. I don’t care enough ... more »

I’m assuming that’s a Curtis typo...I think he answered the phone as I was driving in, but dealt primarily with Chad. Really cool dude.

I think that is some family that at be wearing some Powers racing gear? Not sure, but the name/branding/colors look like Powers.

I’m in Richmond area on business this week. Had to stop by Powers. I say this as an enthusiastic customer, not on the payroll: 1. The new location is bigger, cleaner, nicer...no more shady dark hole on the wrong side of the tracks (literally) 2. I love ... more »
