I am now riding a new CAAD12 and it feels wonderful.
Although I still have many problems, such as my left leg feeling shorter than the right, I can't complain.
I may do some club rides and some...

I have around 55,000kms on my Specialized Roubaix. I expect it to last easily to 100000.
I will then hang it on my wall.

Wonderful!
Is your fork threadless? I can see that frame bosses for the downtube shifters are still included, or are those cable stops?
I like that color. Maybe the yellow I was pondering is to...

The cheap Mavic wheels on my Specialized Roubaix lasted 50,000km before they were ruined by a huge pothole.
I would think they would last forever!

This is what I'm thinking. I have new bikes with carbon forks and threadless. I used to race the CAAD10 until it was destroyed, and now have a CAAD12 coming. I am riding my Specialized Roubaix now...

Marinoni Retro SL

I know this isn't vintage but it's still looks very much like my 1988 Marinoni Special.
And it has 130mm rear spacing.
These are new frames built to order, and I'm trying to decide on which fork to...

May is nearly over. The last few weeks just flew by but I did indeed concentrate hard on my recovery.
The concussion improved rapidly. The only lingering affect seems to be getting tired. At around...

I think I'm going to do exactly that. I can't run but I can walk a bit. Tonight when the wife comes home I will ask if she wants to go for a bit of a walk. Maybe start with a couple km.
She will...

So much good advice here. I wish I would have posted sooner.
Treating the post crash routine as serious as I did my training is golden advice. I'm depressed and not eating right, no appetite. I got...

Thank for the replies. I see a specialist on Tuesday about the shoulder separation. The emergency doctor said it was "moderate" but he said further examination is needed.
I have sick time, so I'm...

A little over a week ago I got caught up in a crash in front of me and crashed hard during a club race. I went in upside down, still clipped in, backwards, at 43kmh. The rider behind me said my rear...

I realize that cross posting is troublesome and redundant. But I left it as it is because some touring riders simply have no mechanical advice to offer.
However these same riders can offer a...

I know 1.9 inch 29er tires will fit without fenders, as I mounted some a few years ago. I realize fenders are great but they can also get packed so full of mud that the bike won't move.

Hmm. Good point.
I am getting away from the shifters I have because the cables come out of them at right angles and I can't run a bar bag.
I don't know if I can even buy 9 spd shifters that have...

I had over 40 000km on my Mavic wheels that came on my Roubaix.
The only reason I had to stop using them was due to pothole damge, not the bearings.
