I'm gay and dont use petrol anymore

postby Skinny » 10/29/13 @ 14:56

Bikes are cool, you can park em for free, split traffic when wankers are stopped at the lights, get over taken closely by angry business wankers, then go past them waving when they are stuck at the lights again. Listen to wankers tell you to get off the road or pay road tax, not realizing that ''road tax'' hasnt been around for decades and they pay VED for the privilege of clogging up the roads and the taxes that I pay go towards maintaining roads and paths giving me every right to use as much road as I need and want so you ignorant fucks can lick my salty balls.

I dont wear lycra, but I do like bikes. I'll stick my progress up and you can call me gay. :tits:

Its an early 80s Coventry Eagle, 531 tubing and super light. Its lighter then my cousins modern road build. It was my Uncles and he rode it everywhere, drunk, no hands, around Wales, after he died it stayed in my Aunts garage for years, 20 years or so of neglect and I rode it home, and when I say rode, I mean stopped a bunch.
image
I sorted out the gearing issues, but pulling all that shit off, got the brakes to at least haul me down and started riding the tits off her. Wheels were bent and the bearings had a massive amount of slop and play to them so I started buying parts.

She was looking like this for a year or so, but that gap in the front forks was ugly, so I decided to upgrade the front.
image

Much better......rear clearance sucks. New brakes threw me over the bars and left my balls sore, but eh.
image

It was looking good over summer
image


Currently its sitting like this, need to bend the rear back into alignment, get new tyres as my rear has skid marks and my front was fucked when I blew a tube up. Been merged into by some blind ass fucks in cars so truing the wheels up this week.
image

I'm also going to be buidling up a frame from scratch, learning to lace wheels is part of this. I'll post that process once I settle on a geometry and pick some lugs that I want
image

Bonus pictures of the wanker that rides this thing...
Rode close to 30 miles in 31*C while stopping for a pint at every pub on the way. Almost died. Thats my cousins roady, I had a 48-16 ratio that day :kitty:

Listen brobot, you can't just jump on the gay bandwagon. You have to pass the initiation, which, of course, is completely homosexual contact, with multiple persons, to rule out any favoritism.

Yeah Geoff, check the grey bar with the home link on it.

Fixed gear is fun, but a pain if you live around hills. Also I have bad knees...and get lazy. I normally just do the SS. There are loads of Pugs that pop for sale, but the ones that are close get sold too quick or are overpriced. I'm still looking though.

Cheaper front chain rings are normally riveted together, you can drill these out and buy a new chain ring and chain ring bolts. Or just source yourself a new ss/tracked chain set. Chain ring bolts ment for multiple c-rings are normally longer, but there are places that make shorter ones. Stronglight and Zenith come to mind

Today I decided to build up the spare front wheel. I was going to strip the spokes as the powercoat got chipped with my secondary locking method. But decided to fuck that as 32 spokes is a pain.

So first things first. Acquire parts, including in this list are your rim, spokes, spoke nipples (haha nipple.), hub, screwdriver and spoke key, I also added some nuclear horse piss and grapes to fuel this endeavor. Danzig will get me through this build.
image

Start by lacing one side, I'm doing a simple 2 cross pattern, so you skip a hole on the hub but lace to every four on the rim. I forgot to take a picture of this, but here is one of my princess.
image



Next get distracted and buy used Cinelli Pista drops. 25 quid....bargain.
image

Holy shit, this grape is bigger then my testicles!!
image

Realize you fucked. Quietly cry and start again.
image

Cool.
image

Alright the postman came. Was going to rewrap my current SR drops, but will wait till new bars get here!
image

Go the other way! this time underlapping a spoke.
image


Flip wheel and do the other hub.
image

Next tighten everything up. I'll true this when my wheel stand gets here. I'm going to take a wire brush to the spokes this afternoon.

Its not all about speed. Think of picking yourself up a turbo trainer, you can train infront of the tv if you wanted too. I wouldnt really say that cycling is the best way to drop weight, but you can sure get some powerful leg out of it.......also stamina. Ladies love the stamina. :unicorn:

It would provide good cardio for me and definitely improve my stamina. If I have a time to beat then that gives me a reason to push harder which will allow me to improve myself more effectively. Plus seeing how fast you can get yourself somewhere using your own power provides a little thrill in itself.
