I really enjoy doing my own mechanic work and try to do as much of it myself as I can. Pretty much the only thing I rely on the LBS mechanics for is wheel truing. My bike just feels so much more...

I take it daily, but I'm a vegetarian that only occasionally eats fish, so it's how I make sure I'm getting my omega essential fats. You need to get your essential fats, you don't need to get them...

I bought a Continental trainer tire; biggest difference is it grips the trainer flywheel better than the tire I had on there before (a fairly worn Specialized Mondo). The Mondo would slip a bit when...

I suggest you read what I'm actually complaining about.

Me: Gatorskins suck, they're way too hard to put on a rim and I really struggle to do it. Is there a decent tire that's easier to put...

I guess you ride in the land of safety with marshmallow roads and nothing is sharp, and you probably have grizzly bear hands.

I pulled a piece of wire out of my tire this morning, and two pieces...

I'm 5' 7" with a 79.5cm inseam and I currently ride a 54cm Trek. The next bike I get I'm going to go slightly smaller though so that the top tube is roughly 54cm.
