Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing the rules and seeing what I might be able to find. Finding tall bikes is very spotty for me, feast or famine.

I completely understand what you are saying, but I think it adds credibility and realism to how people build. Those sweetheart deals people find from the widow or just make up (it happens) won't be...

I'd skip Target bikes. Not that they aren't any good, but there are better deals out there. Now is the time to pick up on winter sales and old stock from bike shops. A basic entry bike from a...

Something like that might fall under the mailbox rule. It probably isn't worth the effort of pursuing, however.

I would support something like that, even more so with the requirement of posting proof of where the bike / parts were acquired. Link to the eBay auction or picture of it at the garage sale or in...

Like I said, just a quick search without digging much into them. Now look at Portland Craigslist. Ignore the prices, and just look at the better bikes there. You'll notice a trend of them sitting...

I've done my fair share of racing - road, crit, and time trials. I was never that spectacular, but I never quit in any of my races either. When I first started, it was kind of funny to see the...

Keep in mind that my opinion is just that and that I am no certified mechanic. Personally, I would have no qualms about riding a bike with that stem at all. I've seen far worse. Coupled with the...

If everything that you say about your bike and mechanics is true, I would stay far, far, far away from them. That sounds like a huge amount of incompetence and I would demand a higher quality level...

Not a bike, but just on Acorn bags. I was able to get in and get a front Rando bag, but I missed out on both the roll bag and the medium saddle bag. Bummer. Time to start searching for a black...
