I'm making a shitpost IRL, any suggestions?
Have lots of parts laying about.
>>
>>1064053
Good start. Get rid of the brakes, mount toe-hook pedals and an air horn.
>>
>>1064053
flip them bars brah

you win /n/ forever if you weld a derailleur hanger on the back of that memecycle and hang a mid or high spec derailleur on it with no connection to the actual drivetrain.
>>
>>1064057
No, with connection to the drivetrain, shifter cables and shifter attached, but no other cogs to shift to.
>>
swap out the fork and front wheel for 700c
>>
Full fenders.
Rack(s).
Aero bars.

>>1064378
flip that stem

>>1064378
i wanna see a webm of you trying to ride it.

I need to find a taller seatpost and I'll be able to ride it without eating my knees, I'm 6'0.

Can't you take off the handlebars, turn it 180 degrees to the back, put the bars back in?
>>

Yep. Might have to try it out.

Sure. I'm going to paint it with an expensive looking livery.Haven't decided what brand to use though.

It's got a chain now. I need a taller, lean back seatpost though. By the off chance any of you fags are in the Phoenix/Mesa area and have one, I'd drop a bit of cash for it.

Can you ride it?

>>1064897
Yes, it is functional. I need different pedals though.
>>
>>1064901
Well I mean I'm sure it's funtional, but can you actually ride it? With that saddle to bar drop? Can you brake?
>>
>>1064901
You should get 2 different shoes, one different shoe for each foot

And each matches up to different clipless pedals.

Like one side Shimano the other side crank brothers or speedplay
>>
>>1064905
Yea. It needs a little more tweaking though. I might switch to a threadless front so the bars sit over the front axle.
>>1064909
That's a good idea.
>>
>>1064894
And put the brake lever on the seat post like those fixie kids used to do before brakeless was cool

How should I go about making an aerodisc for the rear?

You needed help making a wheel cover/disc wheel?

Measure the diameter of your wheel.

Divide it by 2.

Take a piece of string, tie it to a nut and bolt.

Cut the string to the diameter of your rim divided by 2, now called the radius.

Do it on a staples poster board.

Bolt the string/not to the poster board and draw a line, do the same with a utility knife using your line as a guide

Make 2 circles.

Now take your wheel. Hold it in front of you as if you were behind the bike

Your spokes each are laced to one side of the wheel and they alternate.

Zip tie your poster board to each spoke on the corresponding side.

To clearance the valve stem. Use a socket as a guide.

Walmart sells flat black spray paint for $0.99 a can. You have to be over 18 to buy it though.

stick a bottle cage and bottle wherever they manage to fit but are least accesible
