I have a titanium Lynskey and sold a carbon Kestrel about 18 months ago. Honestly, there's little to choose between them when it comes to ride, vibration damping, etc. The wheels and tires have...

I've had the same experience with Assos - I wear a L with their stuff, but XL with Aerotech or Sugino. I'm 5'10" and my weight fluctuates between 210 and 225.

I've used the Aerotech bibs, as well as many other brands. The Aerotechs are fine - the seams aren't in sensitive spots and don't bother me. For me, these are good shorts but not my favorites. I...

Calaveras Rd from Sunol is a good recommendation - not real steep, and the climb is a couple of miles long. You have to go a few miles south from Sunol before the actual climbing starts, though -...

Count me among the riders who have tried the GP4000's and a bunch of other similarly priced tires. My take (in chronological order)?

It's funny, but it just didn't seem right to be out there riding those passes without a BenRidin sighting! How was your ride?

Different gaps - the 12-32 is actually the same as the 11-23 gear spacing, minus the 11 but adding the 32 (ok, and the next largest is a 24 instead of the 23). For my riding style, the 28 on the...
