    but why rims with braking surface???
    What I hate on your bb is the saddle...It deserves a non oldschool stealth saddle in my opinion..

    I'm planning to buy some modern saddle now - also that seat post clamp will be black.
    Braking surface... well, that was my mistake

    @giant bike looks great and simple as a bb should be, but isn't it too shiny?


    By the way I have some new mods for mine since last summer...
    Bought from Light Bicycle a pair of U-shape, clincher wide (25mm), F35mm/R55mm rims...

    This should be listed as NSFW. That is some great bike porn. Where did you get the graphics. I think they really tie it all together.

    Couple more questions for the bad boy community.

    1) what fenders are you guys running? I am looking for a full set for winter commuting

    2) what 700c tires are the biggest I can run? I have 35mm Rubena flash's on there now. Width is not a concern but height under the fork valve seems to be the limiting factor.

    Thank you in advance.

    @Houzik 402 Grams for a Carbon rim is pretty heavy when my Stan's Crest are I believe where 365g. Not as stiff of course.

    Might try NOX on the next laceup but I been loving these with my CK ISO and Thunder Burts.

    i would say for an aero rim that is pretty much on par. crests are nice wheels too. would you be able to measure the overall diameter to the outside of the thunder burt tires? i am looking to see if i can fit them under my fork valve cap. i would like to have some options for various terrane and season.

    thank you

    Actually my BB is a pre-Dorel, hence has a beautiful DuPont paint job. When the sun hits it, there are amazing flicks of colour coming out of it. In the shade, it's matte. Jet Black (matte) (BBQ)

    I got this frame. I think it is a Bad Boy. It has the reflective Cannondale on the down tube and made in U.S.A on the rear. No other markings.

    on my Crest rims they are coming out about 53 wide and from the rim in height about 51mm. They just clear the chain stays on the rear and I managed to get a short fender in the front with out rubbing (plastic type).

    Thank you for the info. Also, you are running 650b wheels correct? There is so much info on so many pages it is hard to keep everyone's steeds straight

    yes 650b 2.1 I believe is the tire size.
    Used to have 700 but got the wheels rebuilt to 27.5 and it is much better. Also have a 26er set on the wife BB and she is same but I think could go maybe 2.2 (have not tried).

    One more thing, would you be able to measure the total diameter of the 650b wheel and TB tire? i am trying to see if these will fit in my wife's and my frames. and all i have is 26 and 700c wheels. i don't want to buy 650b's only to find out i cant run a TB tire.

    thank you for all your help

    Sorry I don't follow what you want me to measure exactly? I can maybe take some shots with the protractor to show measurements and how tight it is once I get a chance. It is really tight at the chain stays and seat stays. Something like 1mm on each side or maybe 2.

    I am wondering what the overall diameter of the whole wheel is. i want to make sure that i have enough clearance in my frame.

    It is no larger than the 700X35 Stans Ravens I used to have. It is wider though and I get much better rolling and grip. The Grip is substantially better and it rides much smoother at lower pressure. I doubt I could run any more of a knobby tread than what is on the Thunder Burts though. Simply won't clear the chain stays or seat stays.

    Hello,
    on the picture you can see original Magura MT4 brake lever that comes with BB0 and fits 22mm handlebar.

    I have purchased a bullhorn handlebar (24mm in diameter) and would like to mount these original brake levers.

    My question is if I can remove that metal "thing" without destroying the lever (or at least make that metal thinner with a file) - maybe somebody did that before with magura brakes.

    Thanks.

    Post Your Bad Boy!-1.jpgPost Your Bad Boy!-2.jpg

    Edit: I just couldn't wait and did it with a file - looks like nothing was broken and the whole clamp is still stiff.

    I wanted to do this, but had so much trouble guessing. On paper it should have been OK, but I went to s shop and they put a set on my bike. It was no way they would fit. Mind you, I have an old 2007 frame, not the newer 29er designed frames.I do have a 650b bike now. The tyres are 2.1 inch. The diameter including tyre is dead on 700mm and 65mm wide.

    so your saying that the 650b wheels with Thunder burts did not work on your frame? I have a 2001 CAAD4 F3000 SL frame.

    Actually I said the opposite and I am using TB in 650b and it is the best setup I ever had on the bike. I also have it
    In 26 on the wife's
    Bike. Both bikes in 2,1 size and both tires can't go larger in the fat

    Sorry the tyres were not thunderburts. They were a Bontrager at the Trek shop that tried them for me. They did not fit my bike

    my phone app somehow missed the quotes and who was quoting who :-)
    If Thunder Burt did not had a bit more tread in the middle I could likely sneak it in. It is on the sides where there is just zero space. On the Front fort the centre is also 1mm or so. I suspect depending on the rims this could be hit and go. I tried the setup at the local bike shop with different wheels before I did the go ahead. I have a really great shop here bike24 that works with me to figure things out. It really is close though and if I had a thicker rim it might pose an issue than the Crest's.

    Hi guys. I have another question.

    What is your stem and handlebars length? I have a 2015 BB and I use the stock stem (100mm) and bars (620mm) and I am still trying to find the sweet spot. My main issue is that for regular commuting I feel stretched and I have some neck pain but when I switched to a shorter stem it was better for commuting but bad for long distance rides.

    So by taking into consideration that I have a mtb background with short stems and wide bars do you think that I need to give some time to my body to adjust to the new riding position?

    Also if I finally make changes would it make sense to keep the 100 stem and cut the bars or keep the bars and use a shorter stem?

    Latest update:
    as houzik mentioned earlier that BB deserves modern saddle so here it comes: Fizik Kurve Bull

    and bullhorn handlebar (I have not seen on this forum before any bullhorn on BB).

    Saddle is perfect,... bullhorn bars look a bit odd, unique though...
    How's the riding position affected?

    Adam, what tires and rims are you running? Do you have deeper rims or really thick tires? i like the looks of it.

    @houzik
    looks odd because of len's distortion - "in person" looks very aggressive and less odd
    At the moment there is a 120mm stem but I think I will need shorter one.
    Cannot say too much about riding - that handlebar is 23.8mm and 31.8mm clamp size thus I have not mounted shifting switch yet and cannot ride it.

    @Jefflinde
    the rims are notorious carbon 50mm (go to post no.2322 in here and you'll see some discussion about it - not everybody likes it )
    the tires are : schwalbe durano plus (25mm)

    I can check the rims weight for you (only rims - no spokes, no hubs, no tires) size 28. Just give me a sec edit: it shows - one rim 505 grams (let's say +/- 10 grams - beacause I'm having some difficulties to keep it strait on the scale)

    not all bb wheels weight the same, (C2 and C4 have different hubs)

    anyway, mine are the most premium C2 (year 2013)

    Thank you.

    They are quite heavy and my wheels are the C3 so I suppose that they will be heavier!

    Do you have any suggestions for a replacement wheelset for the Bad Boy? I would like it to be lighter than the stock one and if possible tubeless ready.

    Finally I managed to put all the pieces together and made 2hrs test ride.
    I must say I enjoy the new setup - that handlebar suits me fine (more "aero" position - and I think I can run faster ).
    That brake lever position is also fine I can reach with my fingers without problems. I'm only having troubles with shifting switch for DI2 - cannot find a good place on handlebar for it.
