I've only noticed in with the bike in the stand. When riding I'd never know. But, it's a 2008 Neuvation M28 Aero wheel. By biggest gear I mean the large chainring and the small rear cog. When the...

What do you know about Ghost Pedaling?

I'm getting a bit of ghost pedaling, but only in the biggest gear. Never had that in the past. Regreased the sealed bearings, cleaned the chain, all that, and it still does it. Some say that ghost...

I live in Germany where they're made and got a set of 2 tires for $68. And that's just the regular price. The local shop has a wall of them. Those and the Schwalbe Ultremo R's are pretty much the...

Been riding Neuvations M28 Aeros for 2 years now. Always been very straight. Never a problem. Cost me like $200-$250 after shipping. Like everyone else says, they're great wheels for a great price.

Yup. Just log more regular miles in the saddle and you'll feel fine. Took me about 2-3 weeks of regular riding to get over the hump. Now I can sit on the saddle the next day after a 30 miler and feel...

$450 is a good deal for just about any "real" bike. I think it's a fair price. Would also be fair to just go ahead and buy the other accessories. Plus, the Rockhopper is a very nice looking bike.

Still a fine bike. I still suggest buying it with a pair of street tires while reserving the factory knobbies for any trail miles.

If you only have one bike I'd definitely get the mountain bike. This way you can commute with ease but you can also ride trails if you want. Can't do that on a road bike. Here's an idea. Buy the...

My tires started flatting like crazy at 120. I put another tire on and the sidewall burst at 120 before I even rode the thing. I now put about 105 in the tires and don't even notice a different. And...
