I'm making a shitpost IRL, any suggestions? Have lots of parts laying about.
>>1064053Good start. Get rid of the brakes, mount toe-hook pedals and an air horn.
>>1064053flip them bars brahyou 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.
>>1064057No, 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.
>>1064074I was thinking the opposite, 1980s velodrome style put an 18 or 16 on the front.
>>1064085are those tyres 15c or something
Brooks bar wrap
Dropper post and time trial disc wheels
Get a pizza rack.
>>1064067This, SRAM XX1 Eagle derailleur and just one 11t cog.
get naked and ride that little faggot bike of yours to the school
>>1064053colored chain. led lights on wheels.
>>1064054>>1064057>>1064067>>1064074>>1064084>>1064085>>1064121>>1064127>>1064151>>1064153>>1064163>>1064205>>1064217>>1064221>>1064228So I've put some used bar tape on wrong and I think I'm going to put this Adamo on it. I also have a rear derailleur to put on.
>>1064378flip that stem
>>1064378i wanna see a webm of you trying to ride it.
>>1064388I need to find a taller seatpost and I'll be able to ride it without eating my knees, I'm 6'0.>>1064385It's a shite one piece.
>>1064388But once it's done I'll get a webm
>>1064395Can't you take off the handlebars, turn it 180 degrees to the back, put the bars back in?
>>1064398Yep. Might have to try it out.
>>1064396>>1064395Remember to wear a skinsuit and aero helmet
>>1064378I have an irrational fear of getting my testicles caught in that seat.
>>1064520It will happen if you ride nude friend>>1064499Will attempt it if the suit shows up in time>>1064484It is.Should I try and put this on there guys?
>>1064549>Should I try and put this on there guys?>BSA crankset on a bmxthat would be a fuckton of fuckery
Please put it on Craigslist afterward >custom build>no lowballers, bike shop said it was worth $1500
Hang your bike
>>1064581I'm hoping it's sized close enough to fuck it in.>>1064582Sure. I'm going to paint it with an expensive looking livery.Haven't decided what brand to use though.>>1064583Maybe as a fucked piece of art when it's finished. Your pic reminded me that I should take a paint marker to the tires.
This was my cockpit setup on my winter bike a few season ago, for the lulz.
>>1064612I've got some MTB extensions I can throw on it.
>>1064581>>1064582>>1064583>>1064612So the other wouldn't fit in this thing, I thing this old shitter will though.
>>1064378get a bell, please
>>1064640I might get a bell or an airhornThis thing barely clears the frame but it works
needs a basket and or trailer
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.
Also thinking about this
>>1064660No clipless pedals?
>>1064660How known is this term in the real world?The rest of your "shitposting", everyone can see, but does that add anything?Great thread so far! Really love your work!
>>1064698I've yet to find some with the correct size.>>1064716>>1064687I might just go with a regular company like Felt or Bianchi.
>>1064772It's perfect for TREKTREKTREKTREKTREK
>>1064775>>1064780I scavenged a layback post.
>>1064894Can you ride it?
>>1064897Yes, it is functional. I need different pedals though.
>>1064901Well I mean I'm sure it's funtional, but can you actually ride it? With that saddle to bar drop? Can you brake?
>>1064901You 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
>>1064905Yea. It needs a little more tweaking though. I might switch to a threadless front so the bars sit over the front axle.>>1064909That's a good idea.
>>1064894And put the brake lever on the seat post like those fixie kids used to do before brakeless was cool
>>1064909>>1064913fuck off, sieg
How should I go about making an aerodisc for the rear?
>>1064911Why would you need a threadless stem just to move the bars or further?
>>1064992Put a long and ridiculous stem that I have on there
>>1064990qt pure animu girls is the obvious answer.
>>1064909>>1064913>>1064992>>1064996More things are happening
>>1065001WEBM of RIDING NOW N O W OW
I think you can save some grams if you switch that break for cantis.
>>1065056I'm gonna put these on my BMX
>>1065001OK, I lostmaybe use some contact-paper aka shelf-paper to make a phony aerodisc and then slap like a Mavic sticker on there?
>>1065004Soon, anon.>>1065029Possibly happening>>1065056I can get some made in town when I go.>>1065057Good.>>1065072I've thought about front suspension.>>1065099I found a few ways to make one, though I'm leaning toward using aluminum pizza pans.Should the bike stay blue and get white logos?
>>1065161Great work! blue and white look good, i would add a dash: F-RED, looks more legit
>>1065057They made S Works BMX bikes in the early 00s
>>1065173>>1065180More things are happening.
>>1065202i am beginning to unironically like this
>>1065202You 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 guideMake 2 circles. Now take your wheel. Hold it in front of you as if you were behind the bikeYour 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.
>>1065202stick a bottle cage and bottle wherever they manage to fit but are least accesible
>>1065211Maybe behind the seat?
>>1065211if possible, under the downtube
>>1065211>>1065212right under the down tube
>>1065211please p clamp a bottle cage to the rear seat stay
>>1065206Thank you>>1065209Thanks m8>>1065211>>1065212>>1065213>>1065214>>1065220I took her out on a ride and pumped up the tires a bit...
>>1065206>>1065209>>1065211>>1065212 >>1065213>>1065214>>1065220And was met with this on the ground near the compressor! I think the cycling gods have blessed my project, /n/.
>>1065242I liked the thread yesterday but now checking again its S-Works and this time I actually lol'd>inb4 some dumb nigger thinks it's an actual S-Works and steals itI would honestly ride that though.
How about adding some lights?Safety first, you know…
>>1065263There are lights on it in the pic, Anon.>>1065254Thanks. It's a weird ride, it feels more responsive than I thought it would.
>>1065267I went from never riding a bicycle in 5 years (only motorcycles) straight back onto a BMX. >mfw nothing stops the bars from going completely sideways >it's so twitchy I can't even ride no handed took me a few days to get used to how sensitive they are again.
>>1065242>that red splotch of spray paint on the rear wheel10/10 dude, i really admire your attention to detail here.
>>1065358It's the rear light you raging homosexual.
>>1065213>under the downtube... "downtube" .. heh .. heeh heh heeehh "downtube" heheheeeh
>>1065242Needs one of those massive touring saddlebags
>>1065242Get one of these so you can get your beloved TruVativ crankset on there. Also put a rack or three on there.
>>1064627Get a euro BB adapter from PorkchopBMX.
>>1065370I was sweating also>>1065372Possibly have one found>>1065417I'm trying to make a rack work out. I also couldn't fit the TruVativ because the teeth were grinding the frame. Already have one of those though.
>>1065242Here's a bad idea: get a pair of vintage Campy frame pump mounts and mount them on the aft side of the seat tube and mount a mini pump with them
>>1065421Do you happen to have a 2-piece crankset like an Ultegra lying around? That would look like a pretty nice meme
>>1065430I'll have to dig around
>>1064053When you're done, take it to your LBS and say you got it on craigslist and that it doesn't feel right to ride
>>1065242get the smallest possible front tire you cant fit slam the stem
>>1065456>slam the stemI like the way you think.>>1065242WEBM NOW
>>1065440Will do>>1065456I have an 18 inch, but will most likely be fitting thinner tires in the next few days.Unfortunately slamming the stem immediately makes riding unbearable. I'm hoping to scavenge a fork to mount to a long/obnoxious stem so it can be.>>1065484The webm will come, Anon.Patience pays.In the meantime, I will post pics of some other things I've built for fun.
>>1065440I literally lol'dOP PLEASE do this and secretly get it on video (after getting their reaction tell them the truth, just get their reaction on video first) and show us the video
>>1065485Why the literal fuck do you even have all these random bike parts laying around? Like, I have a few, but you have way too many.
>>1065486It's possible.>>1065487I rebuild and sell bikes for some extra cash on the side. I have a full shed of parts and tools.
>>1065492Will you sell me the bike this thread is about?
>>1065486>>1065487And another picture
>>1065493I am not sure what I'm doing with it when I'm bored of it. I'll possibly sell it.Here is another I built. It was stolen.
>>1065494Why do I have the feeling that this is missing something…
>>1065211Maybe use one of those triangular aero water bottles, but with distinctly non-aero placement.In hindsight, I'm not sure if TREKTREKTREKTREKTREK would have been funnier.
>>1065485>>1065494>>1065495You glorious fucking faggot, OP
>>1065421can you score a longer crank spindle?
>>1065493>>1065495ill bid you for it
>>1065578Thanks Anon>>1065603I tried the largest I had and it was still too close.>>1065644Are you people really that interested in this heap?
>>1065242You know what's really missing on this great bike IMO? A front basket! Ideally it would be attached to the tip of those aero bars...
>>1065686it looks fun, yeah. depends on what youre askin
>>1065926I was thinking bottle cage>>1065953I don't really know how to value this thing. Obviously I value my time, and I've put some hours in it. I've also spent a little on a couple of parts. The problem is that it's a one off shitpost that would be impractical for most.
Get one of these lights.
Also!My next plan once this is completed is to put full road bike gear on a beach cruiser frame.
>>1066022This is a mock up I did.
>>1065953Judging by the parts plus time He wants at least $250-300
>>1066027I hope your arms are loooooooooong
>>1066040I'm a tall person with dangly limbs
>>1066040doesnt matter if he flips the stem backwards and installs the bars that way, just remember to lean into your turns
>>1066146OP YOU HAVE TO DO THISPLEASE FUCKING DO THISYOU WILL BE THE KING OF TROLL BIKESAlso, are you going to use a road fork or cruiser fork?
great thread, do continue
>>1066146>>1066165I can try it out, I'll use bullhorns if I do it that way.>>1066189I plan to.
Or should I get this crust monster and see if it's structurally sound enough to build something with?I think it would be nice to build up an old nasty frame like this with nice parts.
>>1066222https://phoenix.craigslist.org/wvl/bik/6087026837.html4chan ate my link, apologies.
U P D A T EPDATE
WU P D A T E B M
Every day when I get home I check this thread for updates/webms.
I christen this bike the "uneasy rider"
>>1066223>>1066222"Rusty Yard Art" no thank you
>>1066265>>1066268>>1066277>>1066280A webm is currently the next plan.
>>1066221If the seat is set back enough, id consider maybe sticking some big cruiser type bars on there so it would look like you're driving a stagecoach when youre riding it
>>1064053You should get some clipless pedals for that.
>>1067085They're hard to find in that sizeBeen looking though
>>1066280this thread just keeps on giving
Fucked up bike guy here, been out for a few days and may be out for more. Will update soon again, Anons.
>>1064053If you can fit a tri seatpost like this on it you might get a better fit"fast forward" seatpostProfile Aero Pro SP
>>1064067>No, with connection to the drivetrain, shifter cables and shifter attached, but no other cogs to shift to.>>1064378you can make this bike geared. But it would cost too muchShimano DX (?) hubs can take 3 or 4 cassette cogsHere's a cool dude who made a geared BMXhttp://faqload.com/faqs/bicycle-components/drivetrain/adding-gears-to-a-single-speed-bmx
>>1064894You're doing it wrong. You want a longer stem, straight or negative seatpost. imho imho imhoyour knees will hit your chest with that setup
Get a longer chain and put a ghost ring for the lulz.
>>1065358It's even lovingly pointed too far down to be any use. Marvelous
>>1067895not him but why the FUCK are these so expensive nowadays
>>1067990>ghost ring that is fucking genius. that could of been an excellent tensioner for my single speed instead of grinding the fuck out of the wheel mounts
>>1067990>>1068094>tfw been riding bikes for upwards of 5 years and working on them for around 2 and still learn new things everydaythat's kickass. If i ever do an SS build im definitely throwing one of those on there
