    This is a bike I strongly thought about getting as well. Congratulations! I ended up getting a Jamis Expat instead

    I'm a week into my Trek FX3 Disc! It's so much fun, enjoy!

Helped this guy cross the road on my ride back home today!

Yesterday my dad and I completed our first century ride (and gravel ride). He's the one who got me into this sport years ago and I'm really grateful we still get to ride together like this.

So today I entered my first ever racing event! Despite getting dropped from several packs, losing (and stopping to look for) my bottle, challenging terrain and high winds, I managed to finish the 90km course in 2h56m2s

    Yeah, good job, but we're going to need an update on that bottle. Fingers crossed.

Is there any way to repair these? Not even 50 miles on them and I don't have money to buy a new pair.

    I’m glad you got it sorted out. I got a nice pair and had the line come out and thought that I may have accidentally ruined an expensive pair of cycling shoes.

    Which is the long way of saying that I feel your scare.

    Contact the seller/brand. Specialized should respond well. Repairing them would probably require custom parts and you cant just glue that shit back together. Theyll either send you a new pair, send you the replacement part, or youre fuct.

    If you got them at a store pop in and it’s a free replacement. If not, you can order online and they are free.

    Frankly, I'm impressed by how well done that is. The whole thing is square, which is no small feat, and that soldering job looks like it would hold pressure. Also, is the deck of this rack made from old inner tubes woven and riveted together?

    Fianlly, a nice, long! rear rack. The ones you can buy are always unreasonably short, I have no idea why.

    I've seen a lot of them on Ebay, all shipping from Italy. Haven't seen one in person though. Seems like a nice idea for short commutes that would involve dropping off/picking up the stoker.

    Stoker had better keep their feet out of the spokes!

    Clearly only for a very, very lightweight stoker. An adult back there would make the bike unrideable. I wonder if the rear pedals are even functional?

  • screeRCT
    3 points Sep 13,2019, 6:45am

    looking at the height of that, I assume this is for a small person/large child to sit on the back? Also, would the pedals at the back spin as well if theres no one on it? cos thats a bit of a hazard, very Ben Hur
