I think they're cool, but they're just way too heavy for what I'm looking for. My main complaint with my current bike is that it's just really, really heavy and slow (that, and I think I probably...

I kind of have some doubts whether it's worth keying all that info in and taking all those measurements. I mean, I have noticed a difference between one bikes 54 cm and another bike's 54 cm, and...

I am a student, and one thing I don't like about the bus service in my area is that there's no service running between the various colleges and universities.

For various reasons, a student from...

I think I'm settled on the idea of not purchasing a bike that I can't first thoroughly examine and test ride. I really have terrible luck in general--I can already envision this relatively large...

I figure the Segway is priced at the point that the company believes would make them the most profit. I mean, that would make sense. Maybe I'm wrong.

$1000.

I don't really know anything about Segways. They look so geeky though.

I don't have strong feelings either way, really. When I last had a moped, the pedals were really an auxiliary thing; they helped when climbing hills, and sometimes I just pedaled for the hell of it....

Does an electric bicycle make sense as an alternative to a moped or motorcycle?

I've always enjoyed motorcycling and riding mopeds. However, the associated costs seem to get higher and higher all the time; motorcycle garages charge a lot for routine maintenance, and parts and...

Yeah but, unless I'm missing something, it looks like they just have a 64 cm frame...I'm between 5'9" and 5'10", so it wouldn't work. :lol:

Wow...there are so many options.

I really wonder how I can accurately gauge sizing, if I'm looking at bikes that my LBS may not have in stock, though.

I feel like my current bike (the Raleigh...

I like the look of the Fuji touring a lot. I like the idea of being able to vary my hand positions a lot, and the geometry isn't nearly as extreme as most road bikes I've seen.

I really doubt...

is there an appreciable difference between hybrids and flat bar road bikes? Obviously I'm assuming the latter will probably be lighter.

Thank you for the information. I like the varying hand positions available with drop bars, but I didn't give bar ends a thought. I'll look into some hybrids.

I'll look into it, thanks. Out of curiosity, does it have a threadless stem? I have never actually owned a bike with a threaded stem, so I don't know how adjustable they tend to be. But for every...

Good entry level road bike for commuting

I want to get a road bike for commuting. I'd prefer not to spend more than $800. I'd prefer a road bike with drop handlebars, since I like to vary my hand positions. Also, I want a bike that's not...
