Just picked up a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt V2 from a local shop today. Won't have a chance to get it set up and ride until maybe Sunday or Monday (kids stuff going on all weekend). Also just joined a bunch of local FB groups in my area for local rides/swaps/races/etc.

Is there a "what shirt is this?" or "what jacket is this?" thread?


There is a «guess the shirt» thread but that was meant for nerdy fun.

Up until now people have used the Extinct section combined with the site search engine and worked it out themselves. Only in very peculiar instances (very old products, rare/Japan only products, possible fakes etc),  have people needed to ask «the cloud».

That being said, if there is a need for it we could definitely have one. The product range is huge, the Extinct section is not complete, the total number of products now run into the 1000’s and there are people here who will think this is fun (like me).

I’ll put one together later today.
Not that I know of, but one could be started if needed..... @neph93 you know of one?

Word. Thanks all! I've had good luck in the past using detective skills and such using the site search feature, but there are a few pieces that are just so close that it's hard to know for sure which is which.

I've got a couple pieces that I'm not entirely sure which version they are.

Oh man, if anyone else has any extra stickers laying around I would gladly take some off your hands (and throw some dollars your way!)

He had original Ritchey tires, and a gold stem and gold handlebar as well. I just preferred black. Local shop had an old Ritchey stem that they sold me for $30, threw the black handbar in for free. I'm always a fan of classic bullhorn style handlebars, but might just pick up a straight black Ritchey stem from eBay or something. Those Bullmoose ones are cool, but I prefer a more flat bar.

Also, picked up that 1995 Ritchey. Not entirely sure if it's a Crazy Pete or a P-22.

Original owner bought it as a frame and fork, and then slowly built it up with parts that were strictly from the era. I took it to my local shop and had them upgrade a few things, as well as put on some items for my personal taste. Switched the stem and handlebar for black ones that we had laying around, new grips, new Panaracer Gravel King tires, all new brake and shift cables, new brake pads, and a new Brooks C17 saddle.

Plan to upgrade the pedals next, then the handlebar, and maybe upgrade the gear shifter to something more clean looking.

please excuse the crappy rainy day pics.

Anyone using a Quad Lock? Or is there something better I should know about before picking one of these up?

one doesn't simply choose to wear the bibs. when the wearer is ready, the bibs will choose you.

Just ordered them from the main website, but chose in store pickup at my local place. I'm not complaining! I'll take a win anywhere that I can!

I've had a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers for years. My son accidentally sat on them and split them in half a couple weeks ago. I ordered a new pair online for in-store pickup at my local shop.

Never received an order confirmation email or anything, so after a couple days I called the store to ask if I could come pick them up, and they said, "yep! We've got them right here!" Went to pick 'em up no problem, and walked out happy.

Couple days later, finally got my order confirmation email, followed by a ready to pick up email. Couple days after that got a "don't forget to pick up! Orders that aren't picked up after 7 days will be refunded!"

Couples days later another don't forget to pick up email.

Finally received a "sorry to say your order has been refunded due to not picking up" email, and the refund may take 3-5 days. Sure enough, I was fully refunded for the purchase.

tl;dr: THANKS UNIVERSE!

Yes! I just started rocking my 21oz bibs here in Nashville here during this 90ish degree late summer weather. So they'll definitely get put through the paces with the 10-100 degree weather we get throughout the year.

My best mate owns a bike shop and he is having hell trying to get hold of components because of the pandemic. The secondhand market for components, prices are through the roof.

Keep your fixie and buy a new/secondhand geared version.

This x1000

The used market for parts is stupid in my area now. Even basic ass bikes with cheap components are flying off on the used market. I've been trying to pick up a used bike for a little over a year and EVERY time I reach out about one it is sold or pending etc. The local bike shops prices for a used complete have gone up a ton, but they just don't have any in stock. It's been crazy.

I'd say just sell it as it is and but a ballin' new (to you) bike, with the gears you need.

And just as pants, 99.99% of the time I'd rather them be or feel too long than too short. Cuff 'em and rock 'em!  8)

I think the sizing is good, but the lines of the cardigan look to fall better when it's unbuttoned. If it were mine, I'd wear it unbuttoned as an outer layer for slightly cooler weather, and wear it buttoned up as a base layer under a topcoat or heavier jacket for colder weather.
