    The Schwinn Dixie Dreamcycle

    I had the same problem not getting my seat post in beyond a certain point with my Felt Classic build. When i looked into the seat tube with a torch i noticed corrosion at the spot the stuck seat post came loose. I scraped the inside of the seat tube with a flat mtb handlebar, then used plenty of...

    1965 Hercules Step-Through

    You are discriminating, cottered cranks have rights too! They just need some extra attention and care, and you need to know how to remove the cotter without screwing it up. Never remove the bolt when you want to hammer one out. Open the bolt up to the top of the cotter, then give it a whack. But...

    Felt Classic, The Black Sheep

    A guy at the nightshop told me about this preconception blowing clip: What is interesting is that the priest seems to gain more momentum with a shorter wheelbase and smaller wheels, but maybe it,s the hat and suit that does it? Or faith itself? Anyway, that,s a hardcore priest, respect! He also...

    Felt Classic, The Black Sheep

    Thanx Bart, the chainring came with the bike, but i indeed did notice the subtle difference with other similar chainrings. I am selling the bike, if i would keep all the bikes i,ve built i,d have no place to live.. Unfortunately klunkers don,t sell as well as ¨singlespeed style¨ bikes, they...

    Electra RS Klunker build

    The front of this design irritates me every time i see it, but maybe you can shorten the steering tube and add sideplates to hide the loop to make it stronger, like an old school bmx:

    Felt Classic, The Black Sheep

    Finished the bike, took it out for a ride. I like, each and both side. It rides, rough and mean, i am part, of an angry machine, it is part of me . Together we ride in unity.

    Felt Classic, The Black Sheep

    Washed and sanded all the parts, the original paint appeared from under the crappy paintjob: Roughed up the chrome parts with a metalbrush, a steelwoolpad and a file before painting with 3 or 4 layers of matte black acrylic 2.50E a can. Result looks pretty good: Everything painted, masked of...

    Felt Classic, The Black Sheep

    This bike is gonna be matte black all over, with a touch of matte black.. I,ll be using the felt thick bricks 26x2.125 that came with it cause i am a cheapskate.. i saw this video: The fork dropouts on the bike gave me an idea how to extend a 20 inch bmx fork into a 26.. no welding required.

    Would be cool if you could shorten the straight fork.

    Thanks Bart, would be nice to go for a ride sometime. Been a while since i have been in Twente Unfortunately any activity that involves the risk of any type of traumatic brain injury with or without helmet is too dangerous for me, considering the fact i can have unpredictable nocturnal epileptic...
