    I think it is worth it. I also think that the MSRP really is based on a comparably equipped bike and similar frame, unless they sell them at their Texas store front at MSRP. My first road bike was...

    True, I agree with your comment above. I don't spend much time speculating. I think the TDF should incorporate another Jersey-The black jersey-for best alleged, doped performance. I can understand...

    You must not follow sports in general. There are too few that violate the anti-doping regulations for me to stop being enthusiastic about professional cycling. I wont allow that topic to sideline my...

    I would guess that Cancellara would focus on retaining his world title. Zabriskie hanging with the big guys in the recent races maybe training for the big show. I like Zabriskie-for some reason, and...

    I was in the same spot you were in. I bought my first road bike on Ebay. I brought it to my LBS to have it put together- I am also mechanically impaired. The mechanic and owner of the LBS never even...

    My first road bike was a Bottecchia. I'm 5'7" and the 54cm just seemed a hair too big for me. The PF frame looks like the tt angles down a bit. I chose the 53cm. I hope it works.
  12. I'm in at 100+

    I cant believe I'm doing this. I just bought a new frame this year. This is a great opportunity. I have a friend who is a great tattoo and airbrush artist who I spoke with about doing some custom...

    +1. I too have wide feet and the Specialized shoes have a great toe box our kind of foot. I picked a pair at my LBS in Goshen, NY-Joe Fix It's. They are great. I work in the NYC area and Paragon as...

    I was in the same boat as the OP. I picked up a pair of Reynold's Solitude. They are in the 1500 range and they were $289 on Ebay. I'm mounting them tonight. I will let you know how they ride. If you...

    I dont see the correlation between the premise to keep the sport clean and going after a retired icon. I think it does the opposite. To ask about past riders is only meant to discredit someone who,...

    I think stem length preference is variable and shouldnt be determined to be too short or long based its measurements without factoring the measurements of the rider. Not everyone is alike and...

    I will wave at walkers, runners, riders, anybody. I dont wave with the expectation or necessity to have it reciprocated. I feel like a celebrity on parade when I ride my local path.
