    My advice is to look for something a little more modern. Though nothing wrong with very old 70s or 80s road bikes, but no guarantee they won't need some, maybe a lot of work. The thing is, a lot of...

    I made the decision to go with 36 spoke hubs on the back with the new wheel. Stock build was 32 spokes, but frankly, I see no reason for someone of my weight (fluctuates between 220 and 275 over the...

    I wouldn't pay $250 for that bike. Also, that bike would be too large for 5'6", about right for 5'11" or 6".

    Condition is everything, but frankly, I would probably look for full cro moly frame...

    The stock back rim on my Salsa Casseroll cracked this summer. Now I am running an Alex touring rim with Velo Orange Grand Cru touring hub on the back, stock Salsa Delgado Cross Rim and Formula hub...

    It is an entry level bike. Retails for $430. Decent specs for the money. The front shock is probably the only thing about the bike I don't like. On the plus side, it does have a lockout.

    Yup. Last year, my son would get all embarrassed to be seen with me wearing bike shorts and jersey. I had one in particular he hated. It was a black and yellow Nashbar jersey that said "Share the...

    Hard core roadies, at least. Plenty of folks happily tooling around in comfort bikes who don't care about speed.

    Sorry, I am trying to understand. When you say the priority is not riding, that just baffles me. I understand there are bike collectors who buy bikes and have no intention of riding them ...

    Ah, tweens.

    The Jersey doesn't have to be super tight. Though I am not usually a huge Trek fan, I did wind up buying three Bontrager Solstice Jerseys on sale at a LBS. They have a half zip, three back pockets,...

    That was my thought.

    I just looked this up. Looks like this line of clothing would be good for touring, or casual rides. One note. Sizing isn't terribly clyde friendly.

    The standard for bike trailers seems to be Burley. They retail for $300 to $400 these days. I never bought one when my son was little but I rented them a few times while on vacation. My advice is...

    You sure you aren't trolling this forum? Your threads suggest someone who hasn't ridden or owned a bike in a long time, if ever. And that is fine. But you are talking about spending thousands on a...

    Most of the folks at my club wear cycling shorts, mountain shoes, and technical T Shirts or tops. Few wear jerseys. I seldom wear a jersey for the following reason. No need for pockets in a gym. I...

    Same applies on outdoor rides. I have been riding long enough to know the difference between a hard effort and a recovery ride. In my case, getting to class is the challenge. Once there, I put in...

    So, to reiterate, 4 to 5 quality workouts a week at the gym including 2 indoor cycling classes. Anaerobic strength, aerobic fitness, bike fitness, flexibility, and weight loss. Those are my goals...

    Did my second class yesterday. Wind chills in the single digits in Wisconsin. Looks like it is going to be a long winter. But I am determined not to lose my bike fitness this winter. I am convinced...

    Build quality of the wheels looks decent, though at over 300#, would think a 36 spoke wheel would be better.

    Sounds like sensible advice. Still wondering why OP's barely broken in 2013 Secteur Sport Disc needs replacing.

    I don't own one but I have seen them, and the similar Ogre, at my LBS. Looks like a great do anything bike. Particularly like the versatile Jones loop handlebar that comes stock on these bikes. ...

    N + 1, but honestly, this is more want than need. If you really had to, couldn't you come up with a bike that could handle club rides, commuting, and touring? I see people riding hybrids,...
