    Repops Monarch springers, quality ?

    Looking at getting a repops 1 1/8 threadless monarch springer to upgrade a plain unicrown fork on a Dyno Ultra Glide. It appears a triple tree or schwinn style won't work with a tank, leaves me with a beehive or similiar I'd have to convert via headset or these which should be a direct fit...

    Replacement crank clearance on chainguard

    Was planning on swapping my cranks from the Coaster to the Ultra Glide and picking up a 3 piece profile set for the Coaster, which I took the chainguard off, so theres no interference issues on that, however I was out on a ride over the weekend, and one of the pedals got banged and managed to...

    CyberKlunk: Twin Halo

    Last year was my first build off. I build a lot of bikes every year, but nothing like this; which was my vision of a Steampunk/Mad Max bike. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/chunkpunk-doneski.83252/ Even though I was cramped for time, I did manage to get that bike about 75%...

    Prewar? Western Flyer - Need more info?

    Ok, got a very sweet score off Craigslist over the weekend. Looks to be 100% complete original and rideable Western Flyer. With original paint, and a very awesome patina finish.

    Chunkpunk

    Alrighty, I made it! Mad dash to the finish this last week, but I'm finally content where I stand. I had no idea what I was getting myself into with this project, and it changed a lot over the course of the build off. I really tried to do a lot of stuff I've never seen anyone try to do on a...

    "Chunkpunk" Doneski!

    Alright well, its time to unveil my plans here for build. I've spent lots and lots of hours researching and designing for this project. This is as much an art project for me, as it is a bike. I have 2 concerns with this project, the first is that I have enough time to complete it within the...

    My first Rat project part 1 of 2

    Had drove by one of my neighbors houses and saw them pitching some older bikes. When I stopped and took a look, we started chatting, and he said hold on, if you like vintage bikes, I got something for you. Goes to the garage, and comes back with 2 matching serial # folding bikes from the 60s or...

    Any Cleveland/Akron area bike clubs?

    Just curious if there are any out there? I know a few guys in the BMX and MTB circles, but looking for just general lovers of bikes. Prefer no facebook stuff, and the less spandex the better. I try not to consort with those types. If theres not, is there any interest in getting a monthly group...

    Question about towing a trailer with a fat bike in sand.

    So, I just ordered another Dolomite last night for the misses. We have a trip planned in June for Myrtle Beach, and that was the main reason I bought a 2nd one. Plan on riding along the beach there fairly extensively to check out everything. Right now, I have a 2 seat kids trailer that has...

    Adding a tank to a plain round tube bike

    Heya, so I got a project, technically 2, identical bike frames I'm in the process of building up. The bikes in question are just plain old round tube bikes that did not have tanks on them. I would like to add tanks to them to give them that "rat rod" motorcycle type look, but I cannot find any...
