The 1x ring I have is made so it's more towards the center of the crank, and they say you can run it on the inside if you have to (aggressive chainline).

We have a 50x11-28 (wife and I share) that I built for mild uphill TTs like Killington. Cielo ended up being way too hilly for that setup so we used road bikes. So as long as you know it's not the...

Looks like fun. Need to get me a moped. Wonder if they make electric ones that have any balls.

I believe you'll want a narrow-wide chainring with no pins/ramps to facilitate shifting, otherwise you could/will have a derailment in the front. They're not that expensive. Sram x-sync. People may...

I saw a CB rider at the club but also didn't put it together. To make things even more difficult we are hoping to find new team(s) for next season. We can't exactly make any team outings due to...

This is likely the problem. I would patch them at home later on, then inflate.



Definitely going with Spec tires after I wear out the Bontys I got on sale.

My dream setup is a staggered Jet...

Has anyone actually successfully patched a tube on the road? Every time I've ever tried a high pressure patch it just blows off. Fat bike tubes (when I had them, tubeless now) were easy since it was...

Nice job Nuzz.

There was actually a B and we were there. CB was there with 3 guys that knew what they were doing. After many tries a 2 man break went away and we never saw them again. I did take...

Not to mention a more closed hip angle could hurt power output. I just went through this exercise replacing a fork I cut with the stem slammed. New fork with a few spacers, body in same position with...

I'd say it's a bike not built around wider tires. And that tire is wide as you know. My SLC can't clear a 25mm rim even because it's slightly out of alignment. 23mm everything forever.

Hadn't heard that one. Another thing I liked about Wahoo is that they are rolling out the FW fixes as needed, listening to customer need.

The Wahoo Element seems to get good reviews. I'm thoroughly pleased with our kickrs so I would probably get an Element if I was in the market. Our 500s would either have to die horribly or get stolen...

Cielo this weekend. My wife did way better than I did. 5th in TT, pack (12th?) in the crit, and 4th in the RR. Good for 5th in the GC. Right in the $. I think I went too hard for 15th in the TT, felt...
