Thanks, just read the Sheldon Brown article and learned a good deal. I'm debating whether to (1) return the bike to EMS and buy a more expensive bike from LBS to get better service or (2) forget EMS...

We learned something to this effect in med school as well. Basically there is no evidence for those large water requirements, like "drink 64 oz/day" etc. Drink when you're thirsty. Your kidneys...

I have a Jamis Ventura Comp that I occasionally commute on, and I just throw my stuff in a backpack. I think the idea of leaving a pair of shoes at work is a good one, if they are too big to fit in...

Thanks for your input guys. I sort of figured the same, that the discount on the Secteur wasn't enough. Seems like this particular LBS doesn't budge much on prices at all. The discount for the...
