    Is it sad that I crashed and scraped up my brand spanking new F29 (nothing structural, it seems), and when I got back to the car the only thing that softened the blow was the thought, "haven't used my dslr in a while, I can post on that one thread now!" lol its kind of beautiful to ride something that was so recently perfect, and is now just a bit "custom"

    It was custom made in a local cnc shop. Pretty light. 151g.

    Awesome thing is, you don't need to take off your crank or chain to mount it.

    Just some minor damage to my Specialized Camber.



    Check out the bottom part of the chain.

    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    nice! well not really, but you know wahta mean. i think you might be onto something here, if rd's could be mounted higher up in the triangle they wouldn't take hits like this

    I wish that was just a hit. That was a complete lock up from shifting Shimanos way too fast coming from SRAM. I tried to dump them, and a little too much went on, chain jumped into the spokes, killed a few spokes, ripped the derailleur right off the mount and actually bent it severely. Looking for a picture of it right now.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    Not sure to be honest, all I know is that it locked up so quickly that I almost went otb when it happened. I was on a full out acceleration, and just got way too excited and tried to dump them, and that is when it happened.

    Yes, many people do miss the point of the thread. As a refresher, summarizing what I believe the thread is about so others get the idea:

    -Bikes or bike bits that show the passage of time, signs of wear, being used and abused but are still functional.

    correct me if im wrong.

    Cheers

    I took it as anything not new with some dirt on it!! Scraped and trail damaged parts are a bonus points..

    so this happened to me today
    finally have something to contribute to this thread
    stock pedals on my specialized hardrock that i bought like 2 months ago
    pretty pissed off...
    i am a very casual rider. i ride mostly through a paved trail thats a few miles long behind my neighborhood. i am very overweight though so im not too suprised (345 lbs, down from 375lbs so dont judge me too bad)

    I took it myself as showing that a bike is not just a garage queen, essentially the same thing.

    Not sure all of mine quite fit the bill, that's for sure. Photography itself can make the mood. I know had my broken swingarm picture been in the woods with trees and mud on the bike, it would certainly be a lot more proper!

    The trend I was seeing was: carnage, mud, scrapes, general wear from use, and perhaps "wasn't planning on this happening", which is the one I'd consider my photo to be, if not carnage/scrapes as that wire did help break my new paint in at the time.

    Why so quiet? This thread delivers!

    The venerable Nobby Nic, tubeless: 45 punctures, 7 cuts, never flatted and still holding air. The Alpine trails are paved with granite razors.

    Upper neck bearing. It's almost square.
    Preload was a little light, I'd say. My first clue was the clank sound it made when I did a wheelie. Amazingly, the steering wasn't notchy.

    Yes. I might have used a motorcycle term.
    It's the factory, Cane Creek threadless headset that was on my Cannondale F5 and this was in the top. I took some pics during dis-assembly. You can see the bearing bulging out of the bearing race at the back of the head tube, green arrow. When I lifted the dust shield to expose the bearing, it was painfully obvious what the problem was. My LBS hooked me up with a new headset to swap this fork onto a new frame.

    I think this thread is off-track from the OP

    Here's the 1st page - A different kind of Bike Porn

    Recent shots like this are an example that fit the thread's purpose


    Recent snaps like this are not
    \

    An no, it doesn't matter if it was Shot with a Nikon D60 and a 18 - 55 macro zoom favorite lens, it's supposed to be INTERESTING, COMPOSED, and not regular pics you'd normally see

    are there even any mods here in Passion?
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    I feel like the mud on the second photo shows use and fits in the thread.
