I have also heard good things about the Pake Space Straps. When my MKS nylon ones kick the bucket, I'll give them a shot.

I have a seagull XL also, and although I definitely prefer messenger bags, the backpack is definitely the way to go for really huge loads. I need to rig some way to stow the waist strap when it's not...

That is intense... I've been pleased if I can average around 16 for a 100 mile(-ish) ride. I need to find places to ride with more rollers and less mountains.

I really like the looks of the new Handsome "devil" - apparently it was modeled after the Bridgestone X-0, and can be built in many practical configurations.....

Uh.... as long as you're not using it as a wineskin or setting it on fire, I don't see how PVC is any more 'un-eco friendly' than any other plastic.

I did this for a while (with a 46) until I dropped my chain on a busy street and realized life's too short for biopace. It was pretty fine until then, though!

Or you can just use a $15 front disk hub and do the exact same thing for less.

Like: frames that are made of nice steel at a reasonable price ($800 17lb bike? cool!)
Dislike: pretty much everything else about them.

Formula hubs have fine threads, so I doubt that's the culprit. Was the cog from a reputable company, or was it a stamped POS? Was this part of a complete bike? If it was fully installed by the shop,...

Not sure if that's better or worse than the grunge association, though.

Yeah, I'd say that's a good idea - if they want to get a bunch of bikes out in the street in the new market, a group buy is a damn good way to do it.

Oh, the colorways!

You can also spend $30 on the soma or all-city double straps, and get two sets of the MKS nylon straps for $20. Never used Toshis but nylon beats every cheap to mid-level...

It's powdercoated. I can't tell the difference between breaking on this or any machined wheel, in wet or dry conditions.

I did 210 miles (Philly to Breezewood), which included some vicious hills. My saddle zone was actually fine, but my knees were not happy at all.

I had a velo arione copy (Fuji branded) on which I broke the shell. Up until that point, it was pretty decent for being like 1/6 the price of the real thing.

Actually, just noticed that the Le Tours were made by Panasonic (a good thing) and the Motobecane is "for younger cyclists" according to the catalog... so Le Tour all the way.
