Pcad, I am thinking of buying an old gearset off of Craigslist and taping it on to the side of my chainring so that people will think my fixie has gears on it. Please advise on feasability and/or value of this idea.

tude, it is the curse that jsharr and UA have put on you. You should get out the cauldron and do naked dancing around it (video taped of course) and fight back.

What do you think of the CAAD 9 as a good all-around road bike?

You know, for heavier ... I mean, older ... I mean, taller ... i mean, casual ... riders like me?
