I've found it's helped my technique. I don't much care about technique because I'm just a recreational cyclist. But I concentrate on it when I'm on the stationary bike because I want to make sure...

It's called testosterone and apparently that guy had an overabundance of it. Like someone else said about others in cars, some guys see it as a challenge to their manhood or something. I usually...

Same here. I live in Oregon which it rains about half the year. Because of that, I've got a rain bike. It's a Soma ES and it has proper mounts for a rear rack and fenders along with wider tires. ...

I did just this and it helped dramatically. I didn't have knee issues really but because of a broken leg, I had a lot of atrophy in the leg which I had no real idea on how to correct. Went to a...

Get the carbon since it's what you don't have. Which one would depend on what your goals are for cycling. I ride a Specialized Roubaix, but my goals are recreational riding and being as comfortable...

After I read your post, I went back and re-read the OP's post. Yep, I did it as well. To the OP, I doubt you'll see your wheels on EBay, but Craigslist is a haven for stolen good and I've heard...

Maybe. Unfortunately, the shipping might be nearly the cost of the wheels. Like others have said, try using craigslist or maybe donate them to a local bike coop if you have one. I donated a ton of...

I had a Moots Psychlo-x that was my main bike that I ran some 700x32 Compass Bike tires on it and it rode great. I think it was just as fast and the Specialized Roubaix I have now.

Yep you're wrong. I've bought several sets on EBay and have yet to be disappointed. My last set was a $800 set I got for $350. Wheels look brand new but they are a good 5 years old. I've sold...

I can't ride long distances without them. I've got a bad wrist and any jarring will really make it hurt. Gel in the gloves tend to cut off circulation to my hands so the bar is the best place for...

I think it's about the bike "speaking" to you. I've had a couple bikes that just seemed to fit my personality and while they weren't as fast as my carbon road bike, they just fit my style and I...

Do you want drop style bars? Since yours has flat bars, maybe sticking with that type of bike makes more sense.

Maybe something similar to what you have but you can adjust it to fit your needs....

I had this on my new bike. Was driving me crazy because it's really difficult to determine since you only hear it while riding. Found what it was. The valve stem has a nut of sorts on it which...

I have a wrist issue so I need padding, but not on the glove. As FrozenK states, it moves around. I prefer to put gel padding under the bar tape instead. Stays put. I use non-padded gloves.
