I have the Ti versions of the left one on two bikes and the steel version on one. I prefer the Ti and really don't like the steel. I have one of the steel right-side one on a bike too...that one is...

I think I may grab a 1000 but it looks like $500 is the price floor. I'll wait a bit for the sales but maybe the 820 will turn out to be solid and I could switch to buying that. I saw a 1000 the...

It sounds pretty interesting. Most of my rides are either with low traffic on in the canyons where I can clearly hear cars quite a distance behind me. This could help on certain sections of the...

I'm sure that in another year or so, road tubeless will become as easy as or almost as easy/simple as MTB tubeless. In the meantime, I continue to go tubeless and the tubes are a backup or a good...

I'm thinking that Zipp, Enve, and others, will come up with tubeless options in more and more depths. It's futile to not do so, especially when you can run tubes in those anyway.

I'm going to use the Schwalbes on the Pacenti rims and the IRCs on the AM Classics. Let's see how each works. I do cary a tube and am hoping I don't have to deal with a crazy time throwing in a...

Still playing around with pressures. I'm 175 lbs.

23 clinchers- 100/110
23 tubeless- 90/95
25 clinchers- 90/95
25 tubeless (near future) 85/90

I have to figure out my weight distribution,...

In my quest for tubeless tires, I am trying the new Pro Ones and the IRC RBCCs, but cannot seem to find the original Ones. I'll continue with the Orange Seal till a new sealant comes out and is...

I think it is obvious that road tubeless is going through some of the same pains that MTB tubeless did back in the early 2000s when I started trying tubeless. I think one of the problems is rim...

Will have to look into the Stan's Race Sealant. That may be useful on the MTB for sure. The one time I have flatted completely is when I tore a tire sidewall (thinner race tire) in 2007 or so, on...

I have the opposite problem. I don't sweat enough. Bike and GPS are dry as a bone after a ride.

Once I get the 820 (or 1000) for the road bike, I will relegate the 510 to the mtn bike. I wish...

I use Orange Seal (OS) on the road, Stan's on the MTB. Maybe with higher pressures, OS works better. I did have a puncture while riding and OS sealed it but only after I spun the puncture to the...

I guess when battery tech improves much more, then we will get better screen. It isn't unbearable at least. Regarding touch screen, I returned my 520 for the 510. I find that it isn't instantly...

I'm in for the maps mainly. I must have the touchscreen so glad they did that. Why can't they improve the resolution and instead insist on being stuck in 2005?

Road bars have not become wider in general, right? I see practically every bike with 40, 42, or 44, depending on size. 46s are still harder to find. So I don't see anything swinging back, since...

Overinflated tires are problematic but I find no difference between 23 vs 25 on flats or rolling ground. There is a slight weight penalty on long climbs, which I can feel after a few hours but...

I'm much more comfortable on wide bars. I use 44 (at hoods) but 46 would work even better.

On road, I am only going to use Centerlock from now on. They seem to stay true while the 6-bolts are a bit less so. I have both and have heard the same thing as well. On the MTB, the 6-bolt works...
