    Thanks for the reply, wasn't referring to the mounting method. I need threaded for my cantis. However, several models seem to be threaded:

    Missed the front half of the saddle on a remount today on my ride. Turns out that rotating ritchey speedmax tires do a good job grating thighs.

  6. My (slightly tearful) reaction to the Armstrong news

    When I heard the Armstrong news last night, I started thinking, then started to get a little emotional...and I think I know why.

    I've obviously known he's been doping for years, this changes...

    Left crank is shot - replace or new set?

    Got a kaput SRAM Force left crank. Should I buy a new arm for $120 or get a brand spankin' new Rival crankset for the same price?

    It's getting to be that time.

    Figured it is about that time...shaved my legs, dusted off the cross bike, and rode this weekend. Can't wait for the fall.

    Honestly, I'd agree with that. I was able to get around 250 (I think) for my road frame, and 200 for the old 105 shifters. I bet you I wouldn't have gotten more than 500 for the complete bike...and...

    Yeah it wouldn't be a problem, especially if its a more race oriented cross bike. Most of them have pretty aggressive geometry similar to road bikes. Get some road tires, a 52 tooth chainring, and...
