Love Oct 11, 2012

I don’t have children and yet I understand why parents always have a camera in their kids’ face. It’s love, right?

    yes, it is.

    Is that a super record non fluted crankset? So so cool and beautiful. That bike just gets better and better.

      Yep. Got them NOS here in town for $150. Been on the bike since I got it.

      • Andy Nisbet

        How’d you manage to find that good of a deal?

        • Chris

          A little bird told him…:)!

      • Ckamp

         I have seen them sell for 900+ NOS!

          Patience is not cheap.

  • Tyler

    anyword on the chainrings?

  • BrianNippon

    What is love? Baby don’t hurt me…no more.

    What rear cog are you running on that 44? I want one, but can’t find anything better than my 48/17 for rolling hills and skid patches for my city.

      47:18

      • Oz

        47:18 is a solid ratio. It seems too many people run way too heavy ratios.

          They don’t climb hills.

          • Jvgasmask04

            I climb, I’ve been commuting for over a year 48/16. That is why I need a new chain ring.. S.F. Hills suck with that ratio.

      it’s hard to beat 17 skid patches (not impossible).  prime numbers rule

    cant wait to get one of those 44RN rings! they look so beautiful!

  • Mmtmatrix

    Non fluted looks rad as shit with that ring.  Any pictures of a C-rec with that ring floating around?  I wonder how it would look (if good, then maybe I should try to get one)…

    still not loving your chainring.. but Non-Fluted SR Pista cranks are unbelievable

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      You’re fucking crazy. Those rings are the best.

      • http://coffeeandbikes.cc/ Cooper Ray

        They are nice… but Campy with Campy imo!

        • http://theradavist.com John Watson

          You’re still, fucking crazy.

  • Edward Scoble

    May I ask what happen to the White Industries Urban pedals that you used to like before?

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      I never had them on this bike. I always used them on my tourer.

      • Edward Scoble

        Furry muff, I can’t afford to have two pairs for both tourer and roadie.
