We'll be in Oregon this summer, golf and road-biking in Bend, some easy DH on Hood -- Timberline-to-Town, Skibowl -- and Bachelor. Has anyone ridden hardtails there? I'm talking basic/middling flow...

Just got a new road bike

I put a new roadie into play, a Felt Z3 Disc. (And let me give a shout out to Joel and the gang at Revolution Bike Shop in Solana Beach.) It's a comfortable familiar step for me having been on a Z85...

Another vote for AeroTech. And Pearl's Select (?) line offers a bit more room.

But, really, the best advice is f*ck it. I'm a bit over 6', have it down under 270 for the first time in eons, but...

I'm not sure it's a matter of power meters or necessarily spinning out too fast -- for we larger folk, hills simply hurt. You need to work on your crossover shifting, but really the bottom line is...

I just had a Buenos Aires Triple drop into my lap. I'm out on the road and won't get back to my LBS for a bit but I figure free is always good. Mechanicals seem fine, frame looks great; we'll give...

6'/6'1" here, about 285 last time I checked. Loved to ride back in the day. I'll never be 180 and a track star again, but getting to 230 or 240 would be great. My wife and I have taken to charity...
