I tried the Independence Allroad for a few minutes, but the shape really didn't work for me. The dimensions are very similar to the Berthoud Aspin (which I love and now have two of), but it felt...

Look at those seat tube angles, though! They make my 74.5deg bikes seem relaxed! I'd never be able to ride that comfortably

My 58cm Shogun has a 55cm top tube and is, to the best of my knowledge, 73 parallel. It's maybe a tiny bit long for me, but I can ride it without undue discomfort, and I like how it handles. If it...

C&V road bike for long femurs/short torso?

I've just learned something that may explain a lot of the fit issues I've fought with, which is that I have relatively long femurs. I find it hard to get the saddle back far enough to maintain...

I actually didn't do that much...didn't have time, really, and the tools weren't easily accessible. All I did was tighten up the stem, make some quick tweaks to the derailleurs, and set the saddle...

Yep! He was telling me about this pre-WWII Schwinn track bike that he got in high school for about $30, I think it was maybe a Continental? He said it was kind of a mid-level thing, which he...
