Excellent information. That's exactly what I was referring to, lol. I hit the end of the trail just southeast of Lee Summit, and wondered where people were riding to connect back up with the rest...

Alt Bars

There are quite a few suspension corrected and/or fully rigid bikes out there designed around flat bars. Going with a used hard tail, and converting to swept bars should be fine. I'm currently...

I do not have first hand knowledge, but I would say most of the weight savings (really what little there is) is more directly related to the better wheels/tires they put on the S2, rather than the...

I have that very same bike/year. When found, it wasn't in rideable shape, so I was doing an entire swap out of parts anyway. Long reach brakes, and put an extra set of 700c wheels on it. Standard...

Until last week, I would be in agreement with others, you only get shin splints from running/jogging. At a doctor's appointment last week to work on hip pain, we discovered that I also had shin...

Tire Pressure

I thought I'd used this as a reference before, but perhaps not. I run 700x32 at around 45-50 pounds on pavement, 700x30 50psi, 700x28 55-60, and 700x 25 at 60-65. My 700x42 RH tires on gravel are...

Rene Herse 28's

I'm a big Rene Herse fan, and have them on quite a few bikes. That said, I might be one of the few that does not find the 28's overly plush....they are fast, they do better on wet pavement than the...

Broken Clavical


I've broken the same one a couple of times. First time, figure-8 harness, slept on my back, the pain kept me from being too silly. 6-weeks to heal, and I was back to doing all of my usual...

Thank you for this feedback. Really appreciate hearing from someone that has used the product. at 28lbs, I wouldn't call our bikes "light" but they are manageable. We just picked them up this...

So, you're saying the bike has 12-14,000 miles on it? If the wheels need to be replaced, and haven't already been, I guess I'd want to know the state of the rest of the components. At that mileage,...

Trek 820

Interesting they refer to the 820 as a hybrid, though it's geometry has much more in common with an older tour bike/modern hybrid than it does to a modern rigid mtb. Anyway, it's a good bike. I use...

Diverge A1

It wouldn't be too terribly hard to get the chain and cassette to rust if the previous owner was in the habit of hosing the bike off without wiping it down and re-lubing. In my experience, the bike...

Carbon versus Alum

Can not speak for your hypothetical. In our herd of bikes, we do have one unicorn that is sporting 50 deep carbon aero wheels, but they are rim brake. We have one deepish (IIRC 38 maybe?) alum...
