I was looking for bike-related side jobs and found this. apparently this guy will blow you if you install his bike motor engine.

This could have been such a nice bike, and it can still be rescued, but why the fuck are you going to go out of the way to kludge a quill on that bike?!

(that being said, I'd trade frame-for-frame this bike for my grando anyday.)

Oh god a whole group of geezers went and kludged quills onto those bikes because they're old riv-cult idiots.

They should have gotten grandos if they wanted quill stems, whereas I actually wanted a stag, but ended up with a grando because there weren't any stags available.

Not that there is anything wrong with the grando, it's a great fopchariot, rides very well, is pretty, and makes me happy (except for the quill). This whole "quill stem shoved into a threadless steerer" thing really pisses me off though.

Local rando has a stag with a berthoud on a 0setback thompson and 2 fists of steerer with a 90mm Thompson

Did you guys ever see how long the Stag's steerer was when it arrived?

basically that was the nordavinden, too. I had about enough to fill it with bbs and use it as a nazi greeter.

That's every frame, though. One of the great things about threadless for manufacturers is that they only have to put one size of steerer tube on the fork.

Ah, good to know. This was my first ever new bike so I had never before seen such a long, hard, uncut tube. I remember blushing as I unwrapped it.

i especially like that they seem to have ground the welds smooth, except for the one between the original gusset and the new one, maybe it was welded more than once, maybe it will last an indeterminate amount of time before failing again?

Thing is, the guy actually has like $500 worth of parts there, if he just first throws away that dangerous piece of shit.

I'm all for owning and riding a repair like that but it kinda seems obvious that you can't ever sell it. Only give it away with full disclosure. If they just said $500 for these parts plus a free bike frame that might be safe but its your call, that would be different.

Yep both mine. Thinning the heard a bit. Well, making room for new stuff. Kelly is too big and Cdale is too small. Willing to give brodeals for tarckbros. I'm going to make a very overwhelming thread here eventually.
