I have been running the Pro One 28c tubeless and really like them. They measure out exactly at 29mm on a pair of Reynolds Attack wheels with a 17mm internal width.

This is very good advice. I think most people who have been riding frequently could pull off a century, but without proper training it's not going to be fun. There are plenty of training plans out...

I like that Peter and his wife are having fun and willing to put something like this out there. Anyone who criticizes this is taking life too seriously.

I wish I would have written down the size of the screws. Usually, I'm pretty good about documenting that stuff. I want to say they were M3 diameter, but I'm not sure.

Orbea really didn't make it very easy. They designed the fender mounts so they would be hidden if not used, but that design makes them tricky to use. It took me a while to figure out how to mount...

Iím not sure if 28mm will work. SKS says they will work with 28mm, but not all 28mm tires are actually 28mm. Some are larger and some are smaller. I was running the SKS P35ís with 25mm. Chances...

I think $500 is a little high for a 2007, but not all that high if it's in great condition. I bought a new 2011 in 2013 for about $650 before tax, but I called over 50 bikes shops throughout the...
