- remove brakes and install bullhorns

Bartape was put on in a massive hurry as others were waiting for me to do it. It'll do until I have to replace it. The saddle may look like shit but it's super comfy. I've been trying to find one in pink for the extra eyesore but they seem to have been discontinued and I haven't been able to find one anywhere.

As others said, this has potential to be a really cool bike, but the details are all wrong, but if it works for you then that's what matters. Still, either get white or black bartape and wrap it properly.

That would require a even longer stem, and 150 mm is already pushing it.
But I do consider this since I found a 180 mm stem.

>>
>>1211881
I don't see much new that is actualy worth buying to replace parts on my bike.
However it would be nice to see bike frames in the less common geometries that some people here require.

Some things I would like to see for us smaller riders wohld be:
>shorter headtubes
If it works for MTB, why not for roadbikes?
Also a too short headtube can be fixed with spacers, a too long one ends up like that >>1211665 and still doesn't get enough drop.
Or just frames designed to have a 700C rear wheel and 650C front wheel.
>narrow handlebars
I'm currently riding 360mm, but they are too wide and make my arms stand out too much.
>small cranks
170 mm produces kneepain when you have short legs.
>lighter wheelsets
My wheels don't have to hold anything even close to 100 kg combined, so why not sell ones with a lower weight limit and less weight.

Yeah, I can probably lose at least a few cms off the rear housing, just don't want that bend to be too tight. Really want to finally get a Red RD back on, the Rival one works perfectly fine, but just doesn't look right.

Your Look is sweet, love those cranks and stem, and I've never seen brakes that are in the middle of the fork! What kind of bottle cages are those?
>>
>>1212056
Oh I didn't even notice the Rival RD. Looks good anyways I love those 2010-2014 TCRs

The brakes are actually super strong, they're like direct mount brakes essentially. Problem is they are a fucking nightmare to clean since I ride in the rain, and getting the cables changed is like a $200 affair.

You've got a Schwinn Varsity from the late 70's and a low-end Peugeot from the early 80's (probably a P6, if you want to find the exact model the catalogs are all online). What exactly are you trying to learn about them? Neither is valuable, but those basic Pug frames tend to ride quite nicely even though they're heavy, so they can make great commuting bikes.

>>1212459
This is actually perfect information! Do you think they're worth restoring, if not worth much? I don't want to put time and money into a bike if i could get a better one for the same price.
>>
>>1212461
The Schwinn isn't worth touching, but the Peugeot might be if the following criteria can be met: it's the right size for you to ride (or you have someone in mind to gift it to), you already have access to cheap parts and all the necessary tools, and the seatpost and stem aren't stuck. If all those requirements are met, then it could be turned into a decent ride with some elbow grease, costing little more than the price of the consumables that obviously need to be replaced.

This is a funny response since some of the bikes you gave pretty high ratings are actual rust buckets

looks useful/10 but brother you've got some learning to do about taking pictures of bikes
>>
>>1213944
teach me
>>
>>1213947
Lists are good:
1. setting is important. a black bike in front of a black background is bad. a bike stuffed into a corner is even worse. it's like taking a picture of a dog in a cage.
2. drive side aka take the picture from the side of the bike that you didn't

that's about all that's really important, some autists get really mad about other things but as long as you have a clear, well-lit photo of your bike outside from the right side you're hitting like 90% of the important points
>>
>>1213941
so, money is obviously not an issue. you shelled out for a new bike, and then rack, panniers and mirror for city riding, but you didn't want smooth tires for the city and kept the stock knobbies?
>>
>>1213920
personally i would like more people to give ratings and idgaf that he didn't like my bike
but it's better if you post ur own bike when u rate for some context
>>
>>1213920
Why do ppl post to these threads? Do they seriously think anybody cares what bike they have?
>>
>>1213953
i'm going to go back and get them tubeless so i'll change tires then

>>1213950
it's just a grocery getter, do people really care that much
thanks for tips tho
>>
>>1213953
When I first started commuting by bike I bought a mtb and changing the knobbies wasn't a thought that crossed my mind until I wore through the rear tire. No one even suggested that I might use tires better suited to road riding either. But anon would probably be better suited with slicks or semi-slicks given the assumed purpose of his bike.
>>
>>1213956
i care freind
>>
>>1213941
in case anyone cares, i moved the pannier bags to the back of the rack to avoid scraping my heel on them during the upstroke. something you'd figure out your first ride but can save yourself the hassle first
>>
>>1213936
I didn't post my bike. I wasn't triggered. I wasn't attacking his critiquing of bikes, I attacked his newfaggy, cringey and Reddit-tier post where he quotes every single photo in the thread with a retarded one-liner like he's an authority.

You wouldn't cut a proper lock with those cutters. Get something solid or enjoy your bike stolen.
>>
>>1214042
That bike is just for getting around campus, i'm not super worried about it being stolen, the lock is mainly just to deter people from grabbing it and running it off. There are people who dont even lock their bikes here, so i feel like if a bike is going to be stolen, it'll be theirs

nobody needs to get trigged over the fucking rate list guy. you really going to post in this thread and expect no discussion or opinions? saying they post with authority is the only thing that makes it real, you know. i like to see this guy's posts.
>>
>>1213975
most people just like to be seen/noticed/appreciated with at least 1 reply, even if theirs was an unremarkable bike or his hardly an insightful comment.

youre lame as hell if you dont understand how that improves the environment of these threads

>>1211855
Every cm off your legs is a cm lower you can make your handlebars without changing your body geometry.

Your legs aren't short, you just can't/won't ride an aggressive position.
>>
>>1214109
I have a simmilar issue, my bike is >>1211665
You have a bike that is way too large for your legs, I don't know how tall you are, but a smaller frame with shorter cranks might suit you bette
If you need the longer reach, simply use a longer stem.
>>
>>1214098
shame—used metal fenders for balloon tire cruisers (likely for 26" wheels) would have been ideal: you could massage the metal to the proper fenderline and they would keep their shape much better than plastic fenders that are constantly ynder tension unless they happened to match to your wheel diameter just perfectly right.
>>
>>1214250
how long are your cranks?
>>
>>1214256
155mm with 50 tooth chainring from the 170mm I had before.

About 150cm but really it's just the frame is too dang big
>>
>>1214376
I would suggest looking into smaller frames designed for 26" or 27,5" wheels at your sieze.
However they do also make 45-47 cm roadbikes for normal 700C wheels.
I ride a 26" trekking-bike as a commuter, it is just way more comfortable to not have issues with standover-height and stuff like that.

You know what to do. Run split fenders for maximum patrician points.

What's wrong with splash tape?

Though to be fair, I put it on when I switched from the plated steel to the corged aluminum quill stem back in 2009. It was a different time. Ditto for the red wheels.

Now, I just want a new set of European clincher rims that cost under $500 and don't clash with the retro style of the bike, particularly if I want to take it in this: >>1214426 direction, build-wise.
>>
>>1213137
and you're a bit of a CUNT as well.
