I think the F/R set up was about that, I kept the rotors at 160/140 F/R. That said, totally unnecessary, more of a "I can afford the upgrade, so I will" thing. I stand by my assertion above, for...

Wow! I wonder what the BB5s on my 'crosser look like...I might have to fully disassemble and clean them before I resell them (since I just replaced with TRP HY/RDs).

^That. Sounds like condensation forming somewhere in the system. Dielectric grease on clean contacts should solve your issue. I had a similar issue several years ago, and this was the fix.

Absolutely agree with this. Ray does really good reviews, and because he is so meticulous in reviewing, it is easy to compare his reviews of one device to another. I have not looked ta his 810...

Traffic is bad here. I work in Arlington, and I know people who commute in Loudon County, come up from Fredericksburg, etc. They do it because they want a giant house, at half the price of half the...

Thanks for the tip. I'll hit it when we go back down to that corner of the state tomorrow. What's the traffic like? Volume, specifically.

Toledo, OH and/or SW Michigan

Headed back to the area for a few weeks, and decided to take the roadie along and get in some shorter rides (no more than 30 miles). Obviously, since it is a roadie, I need pavement. Tracking the...

Thanks for the info! I'm still in "negotiation" with the assignment manager. He may hold me off to '15 based on some other factors, but trying to go sooner not later. I'll save the contact info.

That's the word, bird. I'm rolling 30-35 F in the mornings, and 65+ in the evenings lately. I dress for the wx in the morning, and carry the evening's clothing...swap it out for the return home in...

It was a good ride. It was cold (44 degrees) when I took off at 7:30, but it warmed fairly quickly. After I signed up for the ride, I was informed I also was headed to Carlisle to do some work for...

MTB pedals are great for commuting for the reason listed above...also much easier to clip into since they tend to engage on either side (unless you use a campus pedal).

Just checked the wx, it looks like high 50s at start, and a high of mid-70s in the afternoon, with 0% chance of rain. It's going to be a great ride.

Just picked one up last week, the bundle. Love it, still figuring it all out, but so far I think this is my best bike purchase this summer (other than the new Madone).
