This thread reminds me of when I showed up at the trailhead with a 1300g Chinese wheelset I'd gotten for $700. The snob-patrol with their $2K+ Enves was positively drooling waiting for them to fail....

I'm in a similar boat in my choice of road bikes (and currently ride an older Domane partly for this reason). Another thing to consider if you're between sizes is going up a size for the increased...

I kind of agree, but it would be so easy for me to just throw a SRAM 10-52 cassette and Eagle derailleur on the back of a new gravel build with a 40T 1x up front and have *almost* enough range. ...

So here's what I eventually came up with. Feel free to critique.

I started with the clamp recommended by Polaris OBark that I'd purchased previously. As mentioned earlier its borehole is too small...

I rode the Slickrock loop this past May. I was in decent shape and had delusions of riding the whole length of the trail. One steep climb put the lie to that. I had the traction, maybe even the...

I'm late to this thread, but saw several mentions of travel to southern Utah and Arizona. If you ever go to this area bring your mountain bike. While there are some very pretty road segments in that...

Just a big backpack. Grocery rides are fairly short 5-10 mile affairs so carrying up to around 30 lbs. this way is no problem. Also my wife typically comes along and can take another 10-15 lbs in her...

If that's all you want the older Edge Explore will work (at least that's what I did). Real cheap refurbs (https://www.ebay.com/itm/325133451119) are available right now. Don't expect many bells and...

With 5 emitters that looks a lot more like an MJ-906 than a 900. I prefer a lower profile (and lower weight) helmet light. I used to run a Magicshine 900s, but recently upgraded to a Gloworm X2 - in...
