I'm a little late to the party, but I've had an Argo Tempo on my gravel bike for about a month now, and I really like it. The huge cutout provides a lot of relief for the sensitive areas. My typical...

It sounds like you're looking for a dual sport hybrid - a flat bar bike with fitness geometry and a front suspension. Trek DS, Specialized Crosstrail, Giant Roam, and Cannondale Quick CX are all good...

Congrats on the new bikes!

I see they have 1x9 gearing with a 40T chain ring and 11-42 cassette. That's very close to what I have, but mine is an 11-speed SRAM instead of the 9-speed microSHIFT....

I clicked on this thread because my opinion of my cycling jacket is the exact opposite. Every time I'm out riding in the cold I think how much I love this jacket. It's a Gore C5 Windstopper Thermo...

This has been my experience as well. I've got a little over 1,000 miles on it, and I cannot imagine going back to a flat-bar hybrid. I'm very glad I started on one when I got into biking a few years...

I don't know how it compares to wool because I've never worn a wool base layer. But the Champion C9 shirts resist odors well enough that I can get 2 or 3 rides (around 15 miles each with lots of...

Pine Creek Rail Trail (PA)

That has not been my experience at all.

My first hybrid was a Fuji Absolute with 28mm tires, typical hybrid tread. After a couple of years riding the stock tires, I replaced them with 35mm...

It's interesting to see the different perspectives on this question, all of which are no doubt based on personal experience.

Fifteen miles isn't all that far, so I would say get the bikes that you find most comfortable. You're really only locked in to the shop you buy the bike from for things which are included with the...

Fuji Jari

After four years with my Fuji Absolute, I replaced it this weekend with a 2018 Fuji Jari 1.5. A few years ago I put bar ends on the Absolute, and I found that hand position much more comfortable. But...
