    Shims

    I need to shim up from 22.2 to 24.5. I know there's pre made shims, but what are some common tricks for this size? This isn't for the stem, it's for attaching a switch made for 1" motorbike bars.

    Bicycles with motorcycle headlights

    Doing some research for my own build. Post pics of your bikes that have motorcycle headlights on them. Extra info like what size headlight, fork spacing, battery, wiring challenges, battery life, how bright, etc. would be grand.

    What pic on google images first sucked you in to RRB?

    For me it was this one. I can't remember who built it or find the thread. But at the time the only 'custom' bikes I was vaguely aware of was low riders and maybe muscle bikes from old tv shows, but I didn't even know they had a name. I was looking into putting apes on my mountain bike because...

    Improving the Aldi bike stand

    I got this stand from Aldi about four years ago, and I've seen that others here have them too. It's pretty good considering that I paid beans for it, but not without its quirks. Recently the clamp that holds the main arm and controls rotating the bike forward or back (relative to the bike...

    Have you ever used...

    NuVinci N330 or N360 internal geared hub? Good, bad, average? How do that compare to Sturmey and Shimanos? https://www.amazon.com/Fallbrook-Technologies-NuVinci-Internal-Bicycle/dp/B07MMNWW7X

    Full grip twist shifter

    A twist grip shifter but the full grip rotates, kinda like the throttle on a motorbike. Has anyone made, seen, or used one? Pros? Cons? Looking for thoughts on the concept rather than the exact one pictured here.

    Suggest a frame

    I have a set of 26x3 kenda flames sitting around, taking up space, and looking cool. But nothing I own can fit these monsters. What's cool frame, not to pricey, to look out for that will take these tires?
