I remain serious about bicycles. In fact, I am more serious now than I ever have been. I'm really all over the map with tons of bicycle projects and the motorcycle project. January has been slated for getting a bunch done on the motorcycle. I have to pull the trigger now on the headstock holder design. I want to be 100% satisfied, but that may not ever happen.D.F.L. said:I thought bicycles were just a stepping stone toward moto construction. You planning to stick around, Pete? This looks serious.
You like that design?
Do you remember the German, maybe Dutch, guy who had the fit website 10 years ago or so? Had just about every type of fit method covered and would spit out nominals?themanmonkey said:So Peter what is it your going to do exactly with the thing? I've worked with various size-cycles and like the one you got the best, but they're all really limited to their basic application. I think it's cool that you're getting so gung-ho about size and fit because it's been a while since someone has really looked hard at it. Have you spoken to Bill Boston yet?
This one? The site hasn't worked for years, even after he actually updated the look of it. I emailed the guy years and years ago about that, but never got an answer.DWF said:Do you remember the German, maybe Dutch, guy who had the fit website 10 years ago or so?

That's it! I couldn't remember his name and had spoken/corresponded with him quite a bit in the late 90's/early 00's. He's pretty cantankerous. It was an excellent resource of the various fitting methods of the day though. Looks like most of it is missing now, page not found on all the links.themanmonkey said:
I'm trying to do some underground frambuilding classes for some of my physics and engineering students. Most are on the wrong size bike if they have one at all. I've tried sending them to places to get affordable fit numbers, but they come back with utterly useless numbers. I just gave up. When you can't outsource the quality you want, you gotta bring it in house.themanmonkey said:So Peter what is it your going to do exactly with the thing?
That's what I have. Man, I've bought a lot of black ano aluminum from colorado this year...DWF said:
Cool. I hauled one back for him from San Jose a couple years ago. He's made a vast amount of improvements since then judging by the model he had at this year's Rocky Mountain Bike Show.SuspectDevice said:That's what I have. Man, I've bought a lot of black ano aluminum from colorado this year...
Why I like the Tiemeyer;
-Solid- It's not just our size bike, it's integral to our sportscience operations as well. I run it with the velotron setup and use it as our erg for testing.
- no gimmicks- I don't like gimmicks.
- lots of bolts to adjust
Guru has been one of our best customers over the years. They have about 12 of our frame fixtures and bunches of other goodies. I pretty much bow to Tony whenever I see him; he's a pretty ingenious dude. :thumbsup:SuspectDevice said:Reteul is opening a fit studio/botique store in Denver (or maybe it's already open).
They have the only other Guru fitbike, as far as I know, or at least Guru is building them one.
It's also the place in the Front Range to get a Spooky.
I just called Serotta to fact check that. They are selling them. They will have new press on them in the next month. $2995. 8-12 week lead time if they don't have one in stock.SuspectDevice said:Oh, BTW
Serrota is selling their size bikes again. They had enough complaints from people apparently...
Paul Hillbrick had a motor driven sizing bike nearly 10 years ago. It's cool nd very quick compared to the more traditional ones.DWF said:It's a good thing you haven't seen the Guru fit cycle (maybe you have) that Tony Giannascoli of Guru Bikes built. Blew me away. This is the only pic I could find of it online:
