"90s rigid MTB with track bars and fat supple gumwall slicks" edition.

Please post your requirements in a bike and also your budget and height anons, and someone will more likely be able to help you.

I'm looking at buying something with drop bars, briftees, and very big tire clearance (~45mm) for very comfy cruising, commuting and some gravel and cargo hauling day trips.

Same guy here. Would this work for the same purpose as the Kijote? I trust this guy because I bought a nice Bridgestone RB-2 from him this summer. It also looks to be in good condition and it fits me. Is the geometry that different on a cyclocross bike?
>>
>>1257267
The only thing I see wrong with it is that he removed the smaller chainring so one of the brifters is kinda useless. Will the lack of a small chainring be a problem for acceleration?

>be heavy and tall boi (105kg) who likes to sprint
For on road and off, would the canyon gravel be better in carbon or alloy? The alloy seems good to me as it doesn't have the memebars and still has a 105 groupset.
Anyone ridden these puppies? It'd be nice to have some fat slicks on there and ride it around country roads and for light gravel trail bikepacking with some frame bags and such.

I'd go for it only if he still has the original 2x crankset and front deailleur around somewhere. That's definitely a ghetto 1x setup, chainring doesn't seem to be narrow wide and that cassette is awful small for 1x.
Looks more like a gravel bike than a cyclocross bike in any case, geometry is relaxed and compact. More like an endurance road bike with wider tire clearance.

are you new to this or something ?
thats a dolan pre cursa.
that's the defacto go to track bike for a beginner track cyclist.
that's also why basically any velodrom has several as rentals.

and wide ass riser bars on a fixie are meme af.
the only thing this thing needs to complete the package is an axle mounted front porteuer rack.

it's a sick bike btw owned one for a while.

>>
>>1256994
It is a track bike but not used on the track anymore.
It rains pretty often, cold weather but flat as a pan.
A fixed gear in Manchester is ideal, little shit to break and as said I put drops on it, wide bars are dumb as fuck for commuting.

>>1257383
Cheers man, not quite a pre-curse but the design that Terry Dolan used before forming Dolan as it is today.
And how do you find the track champion, never got to use it on the boards, tried a friends on the street and felt stiff as fuck.
>>
>>1257315
If you get your use out of it, no.
But cheap "fixies" never last. Eventually you'll spend more on fixing it than having a decent bike if you use it for commuting. If you only need 1 gear grab a decent brand like Genesis (assuming you're UK from the brakes),

Whether it's worth the hassle depends entirely on your need to personalize your belongings. But keep in mind that if you've never done it before, it's highly unlikely that you'll get it to be anywhere near a durable as the factory paint.

Hello /n/, /out/ here.
Last time I was out at Yosemite, I noticed a large amount of bicycle riders, and that there is a lot of bike paths all over, so it seems like a great way to get around and have some fun.
Problem is that I drive a Toyota Mr2, and I do not wish to mount a stupid rack system to haul a bicycle 200 miles and look like a stupid cock doing it.

So how shit are folding bicycles? If I can get one small enough, I can just place it behind the passenger seat.

Meh. If you have a choice to start with something extremely basic and cheap, instead of forgiving and expensive - go with the first option. You will get more experience for the same amount of money and when the time comes to do your x-countries, conversion to something faster and fancier will be easy as.

I can only imagine being one of those people on an upgraded Concorde shuttle flight. It must have been amazing.
>>
>>1257226
"Shuttle" is the callsign for all domestic British Airways flights.
"Speedbird" the famous BA callsign is for international flights only, a hold over from BOAC.
"Cityflyer" is BA's other callsign which is used for BA Cityflyer, their Embraer 175 services which operate from London City Airport.

British Airways callsigns can be weird.

Also, towards the end of Concorde's life, around the 1990s, British Airways operated a number of charter flights with their Concordes. These mostly were short 1-2 hour flights which left a UK airport, usually Heathrow to go somewhere in Europe.
These flights often either did supersonic stretches over the Atlantic to Iceland to refuel in Keflavic before returning, or to Northern Spain usually around Bilbao or into the Bay of Biscay to some Western French airport.
Concorde charters were profitable, as passengers paid £800 for a short supersonic flight with no baggage, and with really only drinks served on board. Since relatively little fuel was burned for these joy rides, a lot of smaller airports with long runways got to see a Concorde.
These were ended around the start of the 2000s when Concorde's scheduled services were more in doubt.

Goddamn I haven't flown out of VLC in over a decade, I never knew that it could even handle a 747. It really does amaze me how some Airports can handle large aircraft. I live in near PBI so I see Air Force One every now and then and it surprised me to see the airport handling a 747. Also this video does capture the true size of the 747.
