    I've tried close to 20 different bars over the years and for city riding I always come back to flat bars/risers. Just not too narrow (~20in). The nice part about SSFG is the ease of swapping bar/stem...

    Muscle memory = unclipping becomes second-nature. Remember that people have been mountain biking clipped in for 20+ years. Also, what's to say that slipping off the pedal wouldn't hurt you more in a...

    "Big" isn't quite accurate, it's more like "tall". The reality is that standover height doesn't matter. When you're on the bike it's irrelevant and when you're stopped you can just tilt the bike to...

    It does not. I agree with the sentiment that you won't feel the difference in stiffness. You'd make better gains by changing to a stiffer frame.

    Since my bike is next to me I busted out the calipers: My 25mm Pro Slicks measure 25mm on a traditional narrow rim (AC 420) and 26.25 on a wider H+Son Archetype. They weigh ~233g on my scale. I...

    The anodizing will rub off eventually. Just make sure to set up your brake pads properly so that the wear is even. Google "archetype brake" and you'll find plenty of pics.

    Thanks for the chart Scrod. It looks just like their CAAD5 track with a 1.3cm-1.5cm shorter head tube across the board. I'll be intrigued to see what the frame weighs.

    In-depth review here

    TL: DR
    Very walkable yet still provides better power transfer than any strap/cage combo. A niche item to be sure, but I'm on my second pair :thumb:

    ^ Looks sharp!

    Today I finally started walking again. Ok, it's more like hobbling with a cane but after 7 weeks of dealing with crutches it feels amazing. Riding can't be far behind!
