A forum for angry bike wrenches who have seen the horrors of battle, met the propagators of bike harm and have come out the other side, just that much more cynical. Plus a place to post pics of the countless bikes that are fucked.
An Equal Opportunity Offender

This bike had some "drag" in the headset. I pulled the top cap and I knew immediately what the problem was. The top bearing was fixable but the bottom was completely gone. Unfortunately this is an old USPS Trek with a 1 1/4" bottom bearing size with no taper on the bearing. The Trek dealer in town said he could possibly get one for me but he would have to call and find out. For now, it still has drag.
