Ooh, thanks for the advice.

Are Performance Bikes and Bike Nashbar the same people?

Sounds like a silly question, but their websites look really similar and they have similar prices on a lot of things. Performance has rubbed me the wrong way, so I'm determined not to shop there...

Sunglasses: Really dark lenses?

Ok, it's incredibly hot in Austin...but I can handle that. Lots of water, frozen water bottles, lots of ice cream. But I CAN'T handle the brightness! I like my Tifosis but I feel like I need to...

Been riding and posting [1] for a while. There's a group at work that does occasional morning rides, so I'd drive into work and then ride my bike for a while. I have recently realized how silly...

I've got a Second Wind and use the really cheap 10g CO2 cartridges, so it's cheap to carry two or three. If I've got plenty of time, I'll pump it up about halfway, then use the CO2 cartridge to get...

Rear wheel dislodges when hammering up hills!

Got a 2004 Aluminum Specialized Allez Sport with quick-release skewers. Yesterday I started up a medium hill, and halfway through pedaling got really difficult. I suck, but not THAT bad, so I...
